Mikenzie Ryan Photography » Luxury and destination wedding photographer

Fall wedding season is in full swing, and luckily for this growing lady, so is the weather! Now that doesn’t mean too much in Texas, but I am grateful for any lower temperatures, especially when working long days!

Chelsie and I first met at The Big Fake Wedding in October of 2015, and I was thrilled when she decided to book GTB for her special day. Not only because she’s adorable, but because she was so willing to work with what was best for photos and made photography a priority, which you can tell, totally paid off.

Before the wedding I had only met Gerry once, but by the end of the night, both him, his family, and all their guests treated me like we’d been friends for years. They were constantly making sure I had eaten, was hydrated and had everything I could need (even cake!). Now that weddings are becoming more challenging for me, I am so grateful for kind clients that make me feel like one of their own.

Before we move on to the beautiful images, I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Angie and John for assisting/second shooting and so many other tasks in between. They were my runners, my water providers and second pair of hands. I couldn’t have made it through the day without them, the Hideout staff, Clearly Classy Events or any of the other wonderful vendors!

These three! Can you imagine anything sweeter?! Haylie is a dear friend and fellow photographer who lives in Louisiana, and the talent behind our baby announcement photos! I’ve known Haylie since 10th grade yearbook class (shoutout Ms.Ray!) and watching her and Luke grow their precious family has been such a joy <3 And now that we have a little nugget on the way, I cannot wait for Atlas and Pyper to get to play together! Anyways, take a peak at their most recent family photos and happy Friday!

About time we talk about our photography workshop, right?! Gosh. I cannot explain how crazy the past three months have been. Ya, it’s off season, but let me tell you! It has felt anything but “off”. So, in case you missed it, in July we had our first business workshop! It was a ton fun, so inspirational, and I loved meeting all the photographers. Plus, we got to photograph Becca + Will’s engagement! You can read more about their adorable story here. I am so grateful for the opportunity to teach fellow creatives and even more, learn from them! Our whole goal of this workshop was to create a relaxed environment that encouraged networking and education from EVERYONE, not just me. This allowed for free flow conversation between all the photographers, and wonderful ideas being tossed around!

I couldn’t have pulled this off without my supportive husband Tim (literally couldn’t have lifted the furniture that needed to be moved!), and  all the fantastic vendors that collaborated! They made everything so beautiful and delicious!

Where do I even start?! This was the absolute BEST way to kick off our fall wedding season. First, my sweet best friend agreed to be my assistant, second shooter, pack mule, dance partner and snack provider! Second, these fall colors! All the green, burgundy and soft details made for the classiest ceremony, and the best after party 😉 And third, do you see this couple!?! Beyond beautiful.

Taylor and Chris have been all over my website. It all started with Taylor’s sister’s wedding a couple years ago that I photographed, which lead to their own engagement session, and now officially tying the knot (it’s about time!). This whole situation totally warms my heart. Feeling like I become part of a family through this business is a such a dream. Throughout the wedding I kept thinking, I want to be best friends with these two (and not just because of Taylor’s dance moves!).
After first meeting I knew they were funny, kind people. They were radiant and never shy about their love for each other. But after hearing all the amazing stories from friends and family about how inspirational Taylor and Chris’ relationship is to them, and how proud they are to be a part of their lives, I cried. I could blame it on the hormones, but the truth is, I was genuinely moved by how they met, how long they’ve supported each other, and how every single person adores them. I couldn’t help but thinking “these are the kind of people I want to be surrounded by”. Sooooo, best friends?!

Chris and Taylor, you guys killed it. All the planning was worth it! You both looked amazing, and did such a great job at keeping everything personal, intimate and so genuine. Not to mention, a total blast. I cannot wait to watch you guys and your journey in being MARRIED. Have a drink (or two) for me on the honeymoon!

It’s Friday, wedding season is in full swing starting this week and while I’ve enjoyed my slow time of rest, I am so ready to see all the work from my couples come together and watch them get MARRIED! So, to get everyone else as excited as me and to congratulate Taylor and Chris on their wedding tomorrow, I’ve got a recap of their engagement session  from January! Take a peek, leave them some love and get ready for even more beautiful photos next week from their wedding!
