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

I first approached Ryan at my friend's engagement party, having been really impressed with his previous work, to see if he would be able to help me with capturing my surprise proposal. Ryan jumped at the opportunity and over the next couple of months he would regularly check in and see if there was anything else he could do. On the day of, Ryan was incredible - he was in the perfect position and looking back at our pictures, they are memories that we will cherish forever.

Fast forward a year and it was a no-brainer who we were going to select to capture our wedding, there was never anybody else! Ryan's proposal pictures captured us perfectly and we liked the idea of using a photographer who would be able to capture moments that truly defined us as a couple and weren't your traditional pictures.

Ryan checked in during the weeks leading up to the wedding to make sure that he understood everything we wanted and that he wouldn't miss any shots. On the day of, Ryan and his team were absolutely fantastic. They showed up early in the morning and were there throughout, capturing every important moment and plenty of candid shots! Ryan was never in the way, yet he was able to capture everything - you honestly would not have known that he was running around the venue to ensure that he had the perfect angles for his shots. Towards the end of the night, Ryan grabbed us to take us outside to experiment with a couple of different shots, and they turned out absolutely amazing.

There isn't enough that we can possibly say to recommend Ryan and Luminous Weddings. He was a blast to work with, creative, and makes you feel so comfortable. Receiving the pictures, Halie and I were absolutely blown away. We had high expectations coming out of our last shoot with Ryan, and these far surpassed anything we could have imagined. He captured everything and everyone and there really isn't anything we can say that was missed.

Ryan, thank you for everything!

We have gotten to know Ryan really well over the past year and a half. He was a pleasure to work with and really made the planning process easy for us since the day we met him. He has a great personality, is friendly and easy going. Ryan is also extremely professional and even brought an assistant along on our wedding day to ensure that he captured every moment. On top of that, he provided us with the most amazing engagement and wedding photos that we will always treasure. He really captured who we were as individuals as well as our essence as a couple. Most importantly, his photos tell a story. We weren't able to choose a favourite because there were so many. We will continue to recommend him to every couple looking for a photographer and we will miss working with him!

Ryan and his team were able to capture the emotion and joy of our wedding day in a very natural way. We felt comfortable and calm through the entire process and that he got all the magic of the event while being discreet and sensitive to our family and guests. We have and will recommend Luminous Weddings to other couples.

My friend had recently gotten married and highly recommended Ryan as a photographer. Her pictures were stunning so I called Ryan and met with him to review his work. He was very accommodating and was interested in making my vision for my wedding day come true.
He had several packages to choose from that included an engagement and wedding shoot. We were very impressed when Ryan had the pictures from our engagement shoot available shortly after they were taken. The pictures were amazing and just the look I was going for, he had an eye for the background of the pictures, something I would have never seen.
Prior to our wedding he was very diligent with retrieving information about the photos we wanted him to capture and he made sure that he did so. He also pulled us out to take pictures as the sun was setting and those were my favourite. He had so many great ideas and our wedding pictures turned out amazing! Go check them out on his Facebook group.
I would highly recommend Ryan to capture images for any special occasion. We just order our wedding book and cannot wait to see it!

Ryan did an amazing job at our wedding. He captured moments which we didn't even know happened until after we saw our pictures. He is extremely courteous, flexible and professional. When we had a surprise issue with our ceremony site, Ryan went out of his way to visit the site in advance to discuss with the coordinator where pictures could be taken and what was restricted and choose the perfect photo sites for us.

He is extremely efficient, we left for our honeymoon the day after our wedding and upon touching down in the airport, Ryan had already sent us a sneak peak of our wedding photos. By the time we arrived home 3 weeks later, all the photos were ready for us to look at and share with our family and friends.

We are so glad to have Ryan apart of our special day and highly recommend him.

My husband and I only have amazing things to say about Ryan!! He was very easy to deal with throughout the wedding process and was always quick to get back to us when we had questions. He helped us choose a location for our engagement shoot, suggested all poses and overall made the potentially awkward experience more relaxing.

For our wedding photos, Ryan scoped out some locations near our venue beforehand and had great suggestions for locations and poses on the actual day. While he was easy to be with and very relaxed, he was also able to bring to order to our large bridal party and large families for photos. His professionalism and talent really showed when the power went off at our wedding and Ryan still managed to take stunning photos in the dark!! During the party, we barely even noticed Ryan was there, but he still managed to get amazing photos. After the wedding, Ryan had the photos ready for us very quickly and even came to our home to help us choose photos for our album.

We couldn't be happier with the photos and our choice to have Ryan as our photographer!! We highly recommend him and would definitely use him again!

It was truly a pleasure working with Ryan from Luminous Weddings. From our engagement session to the wedding day, Ryan was nothing but professional and personable. He was a calming force in an overwhelming day. He is extremely organized and was able to capture all of the photos I had hoped for, including many others I didn't even know I wanted! You could truly feel the energy in the photos that he captured. I was also super impressed with how fast the turn-around time was. We were able to see a sneak peak just before boarding the place for our honeymoon - it was amazing! About 3 weeks after that we received all of our beautiful photos. I have a friend who was married 4 months before me who has still not seen a single photo, so you can imagine how awesome it is to see the photos when the memories are still fresh. I would definitely recommend Ryan to anyone looking for honest, natural, and timeless wedding photography!
