CONGRATS, YOU’RE ENGAGED!
You’ve found the best partner you could ask for & now it’s time for RTPHOTO to tell your story!
You’re the couple that absolutely LOVES what’s real!
We want you to let life happen and experience your unscripted day with us! RTPHOTO is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and with our talented team of photographers and cinematographers we will capture all your day’s stories, traditions, and fleeting moments honestly and without frills.
We love to create storytelling photographs and films that are bold, moment based, and filled with emotion! Throughout your entire experience with us we get to know you and your partner on a deeper level to create work that is truly meaningful for you and your family.
First Comes Love
The connection between you two is electric! Let’s document it!
We believe that you should have the chance to share your love with the world so we included a complementary engagement session with EVERY booking! This is the time where we all really get to know each other, take spectacular photos, and maybe share a pizza!
We love storytelling and love sessions where you and partner go on a date and share your special moments on camera. Bring us to the place where you first said “I love you,” the place where first saw that cute-as-hell puppy that needed to be adopted, or the place where you knew. Be real with us – nothing is better than real!
Each session is approximately 2 hours long and could be done in multiple locations with different outfits.
Looking for something even more special like an engagement video to share before entering your reception? Tell us about your dreams and we’ll work together to create something unique!
“I asked Ryan to photograph our wedding because I knew he could produce photographs that would capture the magic of our wedding day. His documentary style was exactly what I was looking for in a photographer and he delivered in spades.”Kevin Z.
Then Comes Marriage
Your moments don’t stop & neither do we!
Telling your story fully and truthfully requires time and lots of it! We want you to be focused on each other and your families and not thinking about your photographers and cinematographers. Because of that, we provide all day coverage!
Go ahead, plan the wedding you’ve always dreamed about. We’ll be there with cameras in hand ready for the action! How you want to celebrate your love is very important to us and we want to make sure you are given every opportunity to do it your way without worrying when we’ll leave.
We are able to document any wedding in an approximately a 50 mile radius from San Jose, CA without fees and we are able tell your story anywhere in the world! Want to have a church wedding? Do it! Want to have a popup wedding on the Golden Gate Bridge? Do it! Want to have a wedding filled with llamas? PLEASE DO IT! We aren’t scared of new experiences and we absolutely welcome them!
“He got some shots of me in my wedding dress walking to the ceremony with my little black backpack on. Ryan understood that my bag is more me than the wedding dress.”Casey W.
We document what’s real & rarely seen.
We approach your day without any shot lists or formulas and live in the now with you. What ends up happening is that you’ll end up with beautiful moments documented in photographs and films that you may or may not have experienced on your wedding day.
Moments like when Will, the groom’s father, documented Paige & Bronze’s wedding in his own way. He captured the day’s energy on paper with pencils and markers creating pieces of art that the couple will cherish for a lifetime.
“He was fantastic about getting the great pictures from the entire event without being intrusive like I have seen other wedding photographers do.”Lindsey F.
Our Albums ROCK!
Share your stories in real life with a custom designed album!
Your wedding shouldn’t live on a computer screen or in a USB buried in an everything drawer. They need to live in a heirloom album to be shared with your family and friends! Handmade in Italy, our signature album showcases your photographs and films in an elegant and timeless way. Each album is a single volume with up to 100 pages encased in a matching display box.
We custom design each album with your favorite photos or you could trust us to tell your story. Your stories are printed on luster photographic paper with a soft to touch satin finish with no gutter between images resulting in stunning full spread layouts.
There is also an optional movie screen to watch your films while you flip through the pages. Also, with a wide range of cover materials and options you are able to create an album that is unique as you!
