THE INDEX

Ryan

At home, it’s me, the hubby, our wild daughter, and two neurotic dogs. We like to slow dance in the kitchen, watch soccer on the weekends, and argue over board game rules. (Oh wow, I just realized that I think I'm a lot cooler than I actually am!)

My family surrounds me with their happiness and affection that I use like a lens for my photographs. I'm loved and I love fiercely. 

I grew up as a military kid in Germany, where everything feels thousands years old. That's where I fell in love with history and where I learned to memorialize the fleeting moments we want to have with us forever. We're all formed by the people, places, and experiences that have been a part of our journey.

MORE OF MY STORY

owner & lead photographer

As a photographer, its my joy to capture those moments of history as they unfold. I get to freeze time and give you your friends, family and the love of your life, exactly as they were, surrounded by all the little details that made that day the best of your life. If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm a bit nostalgic. I think most music sounds better coming out of an old radio, or at least an old discman with a couple seconds of skip protection. 

But that doesn't keep me from enjoying the present as much as humanly possible or legally allowable. I live to enjoy life, whether by traveling to beautiful far off places or by curling up on the couch and watching Netflix marathons. The wine tastes just as good in either setting!

Live your story, and we will tell it through pictures

WHO WE ARE

We believe, life is short, so go ahead and buy the shoes...and the bag too!

Adventure is the cure for anything that ails you, but it's somehow also true that there's no place like home with the one you love.

We believe the sexiest curve on a woman is her smile

We believe in lazy mornings, short breaks, long kisses, and moments that feel like they go on forever.

Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful

We believe there's nothing like that desert glow!

Happiness looks gorgeous on you

our motto:

NEXT SET

There's nothing like enjoying a bottle, or three with friends, the laughter it brings, the fun, the memories. Also, wine gets better with age, therefore I'm just ensuring I will too.

01. LIFE IS BETTER WITH

RED WINE

Scandal, Criminal Minds, Grey's Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, Girls, Breaking Bad, Entourage, GOT, Walking Dead, The Wire...I could go on all day. When a series ends, I feel like I lost friends. I should probably get out more.

02. love my

SHOW MARATHONS

To me, laughter is like breathing. Bad jokes, pathetic puns, self deprecating humor, internet meme's and funny
t-shirts, I love it all.

03. I'M KNOWN FOR

LAUGHING A TON

My favorite emails are the ones that tell me my order has been shipped. Coincidentally, my second favorite emails are the ones that say the package has been delivered. 

04. ADDICTED TO

ONLINE SHOPPING

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy lashes...which is kind of the same thing. If it makes you feel beautiful, do it.

05. OBSESSED WITH

LASH EXTENSIONS

PREVIOUS SET

Because as Coco Chanel said, "perfume is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory". If I don't feel like wearing real clothes in public, at least I can smell great.

06. my FAVE scent

Chanel chance

Everyday I struggle between "I wanna look good naked" and "treat yo self". There's no question what wins out on Taco Tuesdays, and sometimes Taco Thursdays, and Saturdays...

07. gimme all those

TACOS

It's not that I need more shoes. They just keep making them in my size. The bags? Those I need. We all have our vices. Mine just happen to hurt my feet and my wallet simultaneously.

08. I LOVE

HEELS & HANDBAGS

I can fall asleep almost anywhere at any time. Planes, trains, automobiles, morning, afternoon, evening...these are a few of my favorite 'napping' things.

09. secret talent 

NAPPING LIKE A BOSS

It was my childhood home, and now I'm determined to visit as often as possible as an adult. The culture, history, beauty, food and wine...my heart skips a beat thinking about it!
