About RTPHOTO

Ryan Tubongbanua created RTPHOTO in 2010 after discovering that most wedding photography lacked truth and unscripted moments. With his background in photojournalism he quickly set off to challenge what wedding photography and cinematography should be. Over the years RTPHOTO has documented over 500 weddings in a bold documentary style prioritizing real moments and emotions. Now in it’s 10th year RTPHOTO is looking to expand the team and continue being the leader in storytelling photography and cinematography in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond!
