Ryan Gaffney is an up and coming photographer who has been working with a camera for nearly ten years. His knowledge has come from shadowing professionals from his hometown in Missouri. He specializes in event and family photography.
I love being able to connect with people. Photos give people a way to remember a special event or moment in their lives. I enjoy when people use a photo I took to share with others a special moment from their lives. Taking that one photo they will continue to look back to for years to come is why I love taking pictures for others.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done several engagement shoots. I work to coordinate with the couple beforehand to find out exactly what they are looking to get from their photos. I also try to work with them in scenic locations that they will get exactly the product they are looking for to show their friends and family, as well as use for things such as save the dates and invitations. I keep the attitude light and cheerful so it reflects in the pictures, but I also move efficiently so the process doesn't appear to drag on.
