We’re Gina & Ryan, a husband and wife wedding photography team from Los Angeles. Home to us is a feeling we find only in each other. It’s comfort, vulnerability, and inspiration, and there’s no place like it. It’s an incredible privilege to be invited to tell the inspiring stories of couples who’ve found home in each other. We get to peek inside the lives of lovers at the beginning of their greatest adventure, and together, we get to create something beautiful, powerful, honest and authentic. We’re all about how love actually feels. The real stuff, the in-betweens. Whatever it is that makes you two, you.
Photography is my life-long hobby and passion that changed my life. It is the joy, the happiness, and the memories that stayed with me after the Honeymoon back in 2006 that drawn me into the world of photography. I then started my endless journey to become a better photographer and a better story teller. Nothing satisfies me more than being able to do what I do now – preserving precious memories and capturing life stories as they unfold. In 2020, we have grown into having multiple photographers and cinematographers, and a shooting studio in Walnut where we can do studio family sessions and portraits.
Combining a photo journalistic and vibrant fashion-forward style, Richard is adept at capturing the candid moments of weddings. With an approachable style, great sense of humor and a seamless ability to work in any environment, Richard embodies the perfect balance when shooting weddings.

You deserve a work of art that bursts with fun and flavor – a memory that perfectly captures everything that makes your love uniquely, joyously yours. Our goal is to create a film that elevates everything meaningful about your journey together – the highs and lows, the laughs and tears – and lets you never forget the greatest adventure of your life.
