Ryan photographed my son and daughter-in-law's wedding this past October and I absolutely loved his images! When it came time for me to marry again this August, I knew without question we would call Ryan. He is such a pleasure to do business with. He listens, asks the right questions and genuinely takes the time to learn what he needs to know to capture your story in photo. We have the most beautiful photos of ourselves, family and friends. I couldn't be happier. Without question, working with Ryan was the easiest, most rewarding aspect of the planning process. I recommend Ryan without hesitation!

Ryan was very pleasant to work with. He was great in the engagement shoot and at the ceremony and reception he got excellent pictures without being intrusive or in the way. Every time something fun was happening at the reception and I thought "man I hope Ryan is getting this," he was!

Ryan and his team were amazing from the beginning! We were hoping to find a photographer that just made things easy and laid back, and that was Ryan. The day of he was everywhere. So many of our guests commented on how he was so polite and professional, but was still getting every shot possible. Within one month after the wedding we had all of our edited photos, and they were AMAZING shots. Things that we didn't remember happening Ryan got them in a photo. The day goes by so fast and so many amazing things happen, and Ryan captured everything that was important to us and more. Our day couldn't have been better, and now we have over 800 photos to remind us of everything/everyone that made our day perfect. I can't thank Ryan enough, and I hope that this little blurb will help everyone understand how PERFECT he made our special day!! Thank you Chrissy & Ryan Middleton

Ryan Gladstone Photography worked out perfectly for us. His assistant photographer on the wedding day Emily was also very good. Ryan is a man of few words because his voice is expressed through the photos. Very professional and helpful. We hired him a bit late, so instead of doing an engagement photo session, he offered to provide us with a suitable replacement service, which was very generous.

The photos are beautiful and he puts a lot of pride in his work - even down to the details of the packaging of the DVD he sends out 30 days after the wedding. It's not just a burned disc in a jewel case, it's presented in a theme consistent with the rest of his printed materials and website.

Our wedding day timeline had a last-minute change and he accommodated us by taking pictures at an alternate location.

I hope for YOUR sake that RGP is available on your wedding day.

My husband, Danny, and I couldn't be more pleased with our choice of wedding photographer. Ryan was very professional, easy-going, and of course, extremely talented. He was always easy to get a hold of, was very accommodating of our needs, and went above and beyond on our wedding day. Ryan had no problem rescheduling our engagement shoot when we changed the date at the last minute. On the day of the wedding, he did a fantastic job of instructing the bridal party for pictures, keeping us on schedule for the wedding, and was very professional while capturing so many wonderful angles and moments during the wedding. We were running a little behind schedule for the reception and Ryan stayed late to photograph all that we had asked him to; something we were very appreciative of! Ryan's photos can, no doubt, speak for themselves but we were so impressed by the way he was able to capture such natural photos of our wedding day. We feel he truly captured the feel of the day and we are so pleased with his work. We would definitely recommend Ryan! He was a pleasure to work with and we couldn't be happier with all of our photos!

I found out about Ryan when searching for wedding photographers in the St. Louis area (before we were actually engaged, haha). We had a long engagement, and waited a while to set a date. Once the venue was booked, I contacted him to see if he was available and prayed that he was. Luckily, our date was open, so we booked him right away. We ended up taking our engagement pictures only 2 months before our wedding, but we were able to view our proofs shortly after.

When we showed up for our engagement pictures, we had not met Ryan in person, so we were a little nervous about the session. However, his easygoing personality calmed us down so the pictures turned out just how we wanted - honest and natural. We were very pleased. We had a similar experience with the wedding photos. He wasn't pushy, yet you knew he was getting the job done. We had photos of everything we had hoped for during the day: detail shots, good reactions of friends and family, great pictures of the ceremony, and hilarious dancing pictures from the reception. His second shooter, Josh, fit right in with Ryan's style and was also great to work with.

Another note: In our experience, Ryan was very responsive to all of our requests and very professional. In fact, I requested an additional photo that was not included in our wedding proofs since it wasn't up to his (stellar) standard. It was just a quick shot during the reception, but I really wanted a picture with that person, so he found it and sent it to me right away, which I really appreciated.

I would HIGHLY recommend Ryan Gladstone Photography. I know I'm gushing here, but we were just so happy all around.

I am so appreciative of the service Ryan provided and photos Ryan created for us. He took beautiful pictures that captured all the right moments. Our first look sequence he created perfectly captured all the emotions we were feeling and he never failed to capture the funny moments of the day as well. The day was filled with many changes and alterations as it rained right before and right after the ceremony. Ryan was flexible and professional. Despite the hiccups, Ryan captured some beautiful shots that we will have for a lifetime. Great photographer that I would highly recommend.

I highly recommend Ryan Gladstone to any bride that is looking for a wedding photographer who approaches weddings from a photojournalistic perspective. I was in the market for a photographer who could really capture the story of our wedding. We ended up with the perfect balance of amazing candid shots, as well as unique portraits. We can now relive our wedding day by just browsing through his photos. My father-in-law, who is an accomplished artist, also insists he's never seen better wedding photographs.

Cannot say enough good things about Ryan. He has a professional yet laid-back demeanor. He worked with us to figure out what our priorities were for our wedding day and to make the photos what we wanted, rather than trying to force his ideas onto us.

He bent over backwards to accomodate our schedule; he rescheduled some of his other commitments so we could have our engagement shoot on the day I wanted (while the cherry and pear trees were blooming in the Botanical Garden). He has a great artistic eye for his subjects, seeing people and scenes from different angles than the rest of us non-photographers do. He captured great moments on our wedding day without us even being aware that he was there for much of the time; I definitely did not sense that we were staging/posing for the camera, we were just having our (wonderful!) day. He did offer some suggestions for posing during the more formal wedding party photos. He even stood in a six inch deep puddle of water (it had rained earlier in the day) to shoot the wedding party photos pre-ceremony from the best angle.

He returned our engagement and wedding photos much more quickly than many other photographers do.... a week or two for the engagement pics, about a month for the wedding pics. It was really great to have the photos to relive the day while it was still relatively fresh in our minds.

The second photographer that Ryan hired was also extremely high quality, a wedding photographer in her own right.

Recommend, recommend, recommend.
