Candid, creative, and classic wedding photography
Congratulations – you are getting married!

Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the most important choices you’ll make when planning your wedding. Luminous Weddings in Toronto, ON, is all about providing creativity, style and personalized service. So you’ll love your images and enjoy the process of working together, every step of the way.

Luminous Weddings is now in the top 5% of all wedding vendors worldwide, as rated by clients on Wedding Wire, the industry standard for wedding reviews.




Telling your story through moments – big and small.
I pride myself on telling your true story through your wedding photography and capturing your most important relationships, in an honest and beautiful way. In addition to the classic portraits, I have a keen eye for noticing the candid moments of your day, where pure joy and love shine through. Those unplanned pictures often end up being my client’s favourites.




Including all your friends and family.
Your wedding day will be a big day for you, as well as for your friends and family. That’s why I make sure to capture the emotions of all your closest friends and loved ones too. That way when you look back, you’ll be able to relive all the special moments with the people you love.
While never distracting from your big day.
Wedding photography can be quite a production. As a wedding photographer, I set out to work as unobtrusively as possible. That keeps the focus on you, allowing you to truly enjoy each moment, and gives you the candid photos other photographers may miss.
Based in Toronto, available anywhere.
I love living and working in Toronto and have had the pleasure of photographing some of its landmark venues – like The Royal York, The Distillery District, and Casa Loma. But I also love to travel and am available for destination weddings. So, whether your venue is in Toronto or Italy we can be a good fit.
Want to know more about me?
I’m married to the most wonderful woman in the world.

I have a Goldendoodle puppy named Ollie, who is full of energy and loves everybody. He is the unofficial greeter and Associate Director of anything that falls on the floor.

I drink way too much coffee.

I believe my clients are the most important people in the world and do absolutely everything I can to make sure they are happy.

I always wear ridiculous socks, often featuring zebras, dragons or tigers.

I’m a photo-based artist and show my work in awesome galleries in Canada and the U.S.

I have the craziest sleeping schedule one could imagine, so do expect follow up e-mails in the middle of the night. This is probably due to way too much coffee. Read less

Just got my photos from Ryan and CANNOT say enough good things.

He truly captured it all. I just finished looking at them, and I felt everything while looking. I cried, I laughed, I smiled, I screamed, I got nervous, I got excited. It was like having a chance to relive the entire thing, which I am so thankful for and excited about, and can't believe I get to have forever!!!

Ryan went above and beyond. Not only were his pictures incredible and his services very reasonably priced, but he came to us to show us his work (so so nice to have one less stop to make when planning a wedding), and then went out of his way after he left to pass by the venue and start getting some ideas for good spots to take pics in. He was always response by email, creative, and on the day of, super professional, and directive in the firm but kind way you want and need on a day that otherwise has the potential to become overwhelming fast.

Really, I could go on...
Ryan, thank you so much.

My wedding was a couple weeks ago and I am still so in love with all of my vendors. Ryan holds an extra special spot because of HOW AMAZING he is! Let me start by talking about my engagement photos. My husband and I met at the Rogers Center and thought it would be amazing to get the pictures there (we both work there) but the schedule to get a free day between games and events was impossible but Ryan was so accommodating and patient it was unreal. Finally, the day came for the pictures and he was just so sweet and comfortable to be with which really shows in the pictures taken because we were just laughing and having a good time. I paid him for one hour and he was more concerned of getting the perfect shot rather than the time which says so much about his work ethics. The best part is I got the the pictures in less than a week emailed to me (a web small version - got the usb emailed to me later). The pictures were out of this world - don't believe me? Check out his website to see some of them.
Then my wedding - what a gem of a professional. Ryan showed up early, started doing his thing and made the most basic moments seem so beautiful. He went above and beyond to capture every moment. I had to make sure that he ate because I didn't even see him sit down. Again, he was always asking me if there was anything else I wanted and again stayed past his time to make sure everything was covered. Just a fantastic person and expert - worth every penny! Finally, for over 1000 pictures he emailed me with all of them in Dropbox on the Friday after the wedding (I went to a wedding in November and they still don't have their pictures). Mind you I didn't get a package with prints and stuff I just had him send everything on a USB so it's obviously faster but you can just tell hes so interested in getting his stuff done!
It was so refreshing to have someone who is not only an awesome and funny guy but a FANTASTIC professional with the work ethic of a good person. Thanks Ryan!!!

What can I say about Ryan? He was the perfect photographer for our wedding. His unobtrusive "painless" style made me feel so comfortable, I would sometimes forget he was there. He was friendly, professional and immensely talented. His pictures made our jaws drop.

It is important to note his was great with the kids in our wedding party and our dog. Not everyone has the touch, but Ryan does and I was especially thankful for that.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Luminous Photography.

The thing I was most looking for in a photographer was someone who could understand my vision for the wedding and basically "play along". Ryan did this incredibly well. I was so impressed with his level of attention to detail - he printed off pictures from my Pinterest account that he referred to throughout the day, and kept asking me for input and suggestions.
At the end of the day, what I wanted was beautiful memories of my special day and Ryan definitely delivered!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my closest friends.

Ryan was amazing! He was unobtrusive but managed to get all the shots we wanted (and many that we didn't even know that we wanted, too!) His pictures are gorgeous and fun, and perfectly capture the spirit of our wedding. I'm not a 'wedding' person or a visual person, and Ryan did a fantastic job of directing us into good shots, using all the locations around our venue, and overcoming our natural awkwardness. The turnaround time was very quick as well! All and all, we were absolutely thrilled.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with how Ryan and his team of assistants captured our big day. Ryan has the perfect balance of creativity and depth to draw from in order to capture those precious moments. We honestly did not feel Ryan's presence, as he photographed our family and friends, he was truly behind the scenes...
If you are looking for a kind, caring, creative professional - Luminous Studio/Weddings is your go-to. I highly recommend his work and ethic - and would hire him again and again.

Thank you!

After seeing Ryan's past work, I knew he would do a fantastic job. We had a very wintery wedding, and Ryan was such a trooper, traipsing through all the snow and ice to get the perfect shot. He has an incredible eye, and really captures the essence of the day. I never worried about him missing any moments. He made it very simple to enjoy the day.

Friends and family are blown away by the results, and I'm having a hard time choosing which photos to hang at home because they're all so beautiful!

A truly gifted photographer and a pleasure to have met! I would recommend Ryan and his team to anyone.

A million times, thank you.

Upon recommendation from our planner and upon reviewing the photos on Luminous Weddings' site, my husband and I enthusiastically hired their services. Photographer Ryan Van der Hout has a comfortable manner that puts his subjects at ease and he has a keen eye coming up with some amazing engagement photos and wedding photos. His pricing is fair and the package options are varied to suit differing budgets. We wound up with so very many wonderful photos from our special day that we continue to cherish. I would highly recommend him for any photopgrahy endeavour.
