Hello, I’m Tim and I am glad you found your way here.

First thing’s first: I love photographing iconic moments in people’s lives. With all of the hustle and frenzy that goes into planning these moments, photography is the best way to capture your beautiful memories, both carefully crafted and wonderfully spontaneous.

Because of my dedication to capturing the beauty of your day, you can rest assured that you have someone with knowledge, skill and experience at your back. I work tirelessly to help make your wedding the wedding of your dreams, navigating rushed schedules, tricky family dynamics and any curve balls, with ease and grace.

I love people and genuinely have fun getting to know them throughout the process. I also have a great sense of humor, which is an excellent asset on high-stakes events.

My photography is classic and fresh. I love natural light and and simple, beautiful images. It is my privilege to capture the beautiful moments of your day and to reflect who you are as a couple. Read less

Before we chose to have Tim capture our special day we first wanted to see his work so we looked at his site and instantly saw the quality, care, and love he poured into every piece of work he completed. We scheduled a call with him and after 30 seconds on the phone we knew he was perfect. Tim was an amazing resource throughout our planning process as we were able to ask questions about venue setup, lighting options, and even flower colors to which he was happy to answer and give thoughts from his experience and act as a sounding board for ideas, it was perfect. As we got closer to our big day Tim was available and always made time to answer all of our questions about timeline and scheduling quickly and thoughtfully. When the day came he was on time (actually about an hour early) and was ready to handle all that the day threw at us. He and his partner captured our wedding through a spectacular lens and were able to bring to life our celebration through each frame. The pictures are absolutely stunning. We continue to look at them each day with smiles and tears of joy as it allows us to relive each and every moment again and again. What an amazing man. Throughout the process he was excellent, detail oriented, and best of all a genuinely great person. We cannot put it into words how amazing working with Tim was he made us feel like family and now has allowed us to relive and share our celebration for years to come.

Working with Tim was one of the best decisions we made in wedding planning. First, his photos speak for themselves; they are gorgeously composed. Overall, we look natural and happy in our portraits, as do our family and friends. In all of the photos, the images capture the feelings we had, and it's so lovely to look back on. We expected to have beautiful photos that documented the day and helped us look our best (and they do!) but we were surprised at how artistically stunning some of the photos turned out - interesting photos that do more than tell a wedding story.

Second, Tim was a consummate professional, while also being authentic and chill at every stage. He was early to every meeting we had; he was responsive over email and delivered on every timeline; and all of the contracts/systems were super user-friendly. On the day of the wedding, he had us ahead of schedule, though we never felt rushed. His temperament with our family and friends was lovely. There were a lot of us, with folks sometimes wandering, taking their own photos, or directing Tim and he was calm, direct, and humorous. Everyone felt so comfortable with him (and it shows in their expressions). He took every photo we asked, without disrupting the flow of the evening. We have photos from every angle of our ceremony, including an upstairs window, and his style was so unobtrusive we didn't even notice. At the end of the night, when the venue -- and me and my husband! -- forgot about cutting the cake, Tim remembered and coordinated getting the cake, cutters, and reminding my husband to put his jacket on. He is super details oriented, and also charmed our guests. We'd book again in a heartbeat.

I decided early on in the wedding planning process to prioritize selecting a great photographer. You only get one shot to capture your wedding day on camera, and it was important to me that it be done right. I scoured online photo galleries and reviews in a search for the "perfect" photographer. I am happy to report that I found him in Tim Ryan Smith! Tim was initially recommended to me by my coordinator at The Garrison. Upon viewing his galleries online, I noticed that he is a versatile photographer and has experience photographing in Brooklyn (where we live and had our engagement photos taken) and the Hudson Valley (where we got married). Upon viewing (and loving) his past work, I called Tim to get his availability. Tim was so easy to talk to, and we ended up chatting for awhile. From the start, Tim was a breeze to work with. He was responsive, organized, and upbeat. I think it is important to get to know your photographer so that you are comfortable and relaxed while being photographed. On our wedding day, it felt like a friend was taking our photos. I think most people feel comfortable around Tim. He is easygoing, nonintrusive, and funny. As a result, Tim was able to capture beautiful "candid" moments throughout our wedding ceremony and reception. Aside from being a great guy, Tim is an incredibly talented photographer. I was beyond ecstatic when our photos arrived; they are vibrant, thoughtful, and all-around gorgeous. While my memory may fade through the years, I will always be able to come back to my wedding photos that so beautifully and perfectly captured our day. Thank you Tim!

Tim was the first person we hired to work with for our wedding, and it was truly one of the best decisions we made. After hiring him, it felt like so many things started to fall into place. He was patient and organized, and his work is incredibly beautiful. Our entire family and wedding party loved working with him. We wanted to work with someone who could really capture emotion and the life behind moments instead of just take staged photographs. While he did take the standard portraits that we wanted with our families, he has such a wonderful sense of vision and talent that the emotion and excitement of every occasion seemed to really transcend in his photographs. Tim does a wonderful job at working in unexpected circumstances as well! Our rehearsal pictures were taken in an incredibly crowded amusement park on a very hot and windy day, but he managed to take the most stunning photographs, and he kept us calm, engaged and just joyous the entire time. On our wedding day, the second photograph he brought (Konrad) was very professional, nice and talented as well. We loved every part about working with Tim! My husband and I are so grateful to him for being a part of the most important day in our lives.

We hired Tim after an enthusiastic recommendation from a friend, and we're so glad we did. Throughout the process, he was professional, reliable, and always a pleasure to deal with. He spent much of an afternoon a few months before the wedding doing an engagement photo shoot with us, which helped him get to know us before the big day. On the day of the wedding, he and his assistant arrived early, to scope out the location and figure out ideal places for shooting, and stayed quite late, to document all the festivities. He took some wonderful photos, a great combination of formal portraits and candid shots, in both color and black and white. My husband and I both come from pretty large families and have many discrete groups of friends, and Tim kindly indulged our wishes to have many different group photos, in all sorts of combinations and permutations. But he also roamed around and unobtrusively documented many wonderful moments from the wedding, including some that we didn't see ourselves because we were so busy meeting and greeting. Tim's an extremely talented photographer and a delightful person to work with, and we recommend him without reservation!

Tim did our engagement photos (in Central Park) and we couldn't be happier! I just posted them on facebook for our friends and family to see, and everyone has glowing comments! They all mention how happy and in love we look in the photos! Not to mention the gorgeous backgrounds Tim found for us. My fiance hates taking pictures, but Tim put him at ease with his no-pressure, laid-back attitude. Afterward, my fiance said, wow that wasn't so bad. ;) Tim captured us in natural moments, but was also willing to pose us somewhat if we needed a little help. He was very receptive to my ideas, and even stayed with us a little longer than we'd agreed so that we could get everything I wanted and then more. We received our edits in a week!! I highly recommend Tim - very easy to work with, nice guy, amazing quality!!

My wife and I have so many kind words to say about Tim. Where do we begin?!

After stumbling upon his website, we were instantly attracted to the work Tim had done in the past. He seemed to just have a way of capturing the most beautiful, breathtaking, and exquisite moments We reached out to Tim and set up a time to meet at a local coffee shop. After a brief discussion, we knew Tim was the photographer for us!

Tim is professional, creative, accommodating, patient, and most importantly, very easy to work and get along with. He even has a great sense of humor! He was always quick to respond to any questions we had and always made himself available. He even met us for dinner a few days before our wedding just to discuss the big day, reassure us, and discuss all the details.

We received the final product in a very timely manner, and his work truly speaks for itself. Tim captured stunning photos from our special day. When my wife's mother saw the portraits photos, they brought tears to her eyes.

We are so lucky and happy to have met and worked with Tim. My wife and I feel like we didn't just find a photographer but made a new friend! We highly recommended him, and you will not be disappointed!

Not only is Tim a fabulous photographer, he is also a pleasure to work with. Tim photographed our wedding last month and we couldn't be happier with the photos. He is professional and reliable, and it was great getting to know him in the months before the wedding. Whenever we had a question, he was always responsive and understanding. My husband and I immediately felt comfortable with him. Tim has a calming presence, and really helped me the day of the wedding. Throughout the various last-minute changes in plan, schedule slippages, etc. on our wedding day, Tim was very good natured and accommodating. And we are so grateful for the photos that he took, not only of the two of us, but also of our friends and family. He really captured this incredible day in our lives. We cannot recommend him highly enough!

Tim was incredible. I've known him for over ten years and was thrilled that he was able to be our wedding photographer. Tim was professional from the onset- he sent us an info questionnaire so that he could know more about us and what we were hoping for on our wedding day. He did an amazing job at capturing the "essence" of us as a couple and the atmosphere of the whole day. Most of the time I didn't even know he was there, which led to some amazing, candid shots. He was so easy-going that it helped to put us both at ease. We got so many natural photos- which is usually a challenge for my husband (doesn't love to be photographed!). He absolutely nailed it! He was always a step ahead of us, and he was extremely sensitive to our requests and details that we wanted to capture. I would recommend Tim without hesitation. We wouldn't have wanted anyone else!

I was incredibly nervous about the wedding :), and I wasn't sure how the photography bit would work and what I would need to do. Tim was amazing in that I didn't have to do anything, and I barely even noticed him working. He was like a ninja, he would appear, take pictures, and melt away only to reappear somewhere else. The pictures are amazing and there are so many candid shots of my family and friends! Highly recommended!
