Ryan Greenleaf Photography
Tell us a little about your company? I shot my first wedding in 2006 and have come a long way. I worked with a wedding photographer for 3 years. Completed college and opened my business in 2011. I just recently quit my second job and am now photographing full time! Very thankful.
When did you establish your business? 2011.
What sets you apart from your competition? Being Me. Simple as that. No one has the same eyes I have or personality.
Where do you find inspiration? In nature, in magazines, watching couples interact naturally, photography workshops, vacations.
Do you regularly blog? Yes! I blog twice a week. Usually a personal post along with a shoot. You can follow my blog here.
What’s your favorite comment/compliment that one of your clients has given you? That I work fast while still getting those quality/natural/creative images. Photography is so important on your wedding day but so is interacting with all of your guests.
What’s your favorite local restaurant? BANDERA!
What is your favorite fun thing to do locally? I love going to Tahoe. My family has a cabin up there.
Do you have secret vice or indulgence? What is it? Yes. I can’t believe I’m admitting this but I can’t wait to go see Britney Spears in Las Vegas.
Do you have any hidden talents? I grew up doing musical theatre so I have been in many plays. I also love to sing. But now I think I only sound good in the car or in the shower.
If you weren’t in the business that you are in now, what other business/profession would you have liked to have done? I would probably be a teacher or something involving marketing.
If you were to plan your own wedding, or re-do your wedding, what element(s) would be most important to you? Photography for me…my partner’s most important thing is food.
What advice would you can give to brides and grooms getting married today? Relax, breathe, you hired professionals for a reason, take it all in because the day goes by fast. Oh and photos/video are the only thing you have left after the day is over so think about that when you are budgeting!
