Ryan is very professional and fun to work with! Would recommend to anyone for any photography needs. He captured our day and us perfectly.

Nicole – Bride – Mt Pleasant, Michigan

Ryan worked so well with my husband and I throughout the engagement session, the planning of all the wedding photos we wanted, and the actual wedding day itself. The price for the package deal is incredible too! I looked for quite some time for a photographer, and I am ecstatic about the results of the photos and the short time in which we got them!

Caitlyn – Bride – Gladwin, Michigan

Ryan was the perfect person to capture our big day. Was extremely professional and timely. He went out of his way to pre search out spot to get pictures taken the day before the wedding. He also had back up plans in case of weather issues. He was also super timely in getting our photos back to us after the big day!

Ryan Watkins did such an amazing job at my wedding… He is better than most photography studios in Mid-Michigan that cost so much more. 

Katie – Bride – Mt Pleasant, Michigan 

Ryan and his assistant are nothing short of wonderful to work with. They demonstrate extraordinary creativity and talent, while never being intrusive at the wedding and reception. The amount of photo choices truly captures all aspects of the events of the day. While displaying the highest artistic talent, customer service standards were displayed to the highest degree. Photography services were very competitively priced with a product well beyond the fees charged. RyanWatkinsPhotography comes with only the very highest recommendations. Do not miss an opportunity to share in this very special experience and knowing that precious and treasured wedding photos are in the most responsible and creative of hands.

We reached out to Ryan and he was quick to respond. We sat down and hashed out the details in what was important to me in my family pics! With two young crazy boys I was surprised at the very fluent way we are able to navigate thru our session and even better when we received our proof pics back a week later!!!…..I was so joyful of the results! I highly recommend Ryan for a precise, efficient, and phenomenal job:) thanks again Ryan!!

Ryan is an excellent photographer!! Very thorough!!!

Aaron – Saginaw, Michigan

Ryan took photos for an annual gathering of all our friends and did an amazing job. As well as taking great photos, Ryan was kind and professional and fit right in with us too!

Lindsay – Saginaw, Michigan 

Brilliant photographer. Has a great eye for lighting and helping direct headshots for my business and team.

Nic – Midland, Michigan

Ryan Watkins guided us through the seemingly daunting senior picture experience, bringing out the photogenic personality of our wonderful daughter in the process. Ryan has an unusual blend of artistic talent and business sense, with an easy-going personality that seamless merges the two extremes. We turned the photo shoot and proof review sessions into fun mini-family gatherings, using collaborative input regarding outfit choices and picture selection…but there was no doubt that Ryan, with his creative ideas and state of the art tools, was always in control. For the past two years, I’ve enjoyed a Ryan Watkins’ whitetail deer photograph in my office. Now, I’m looking forward to many years of cherishing the image of our daughter in our house. Thanks so much, Ryan. Not only are you a budding young talent who was a pleasure to work with; you also take great pride in your work reputation, as exhibited by being on-time for every one of our appointments.

Steve – Parent – Clare, Michigan

We really enjoyed our photo shoot with Ryan. He selected a lovely outdoor location at an ideal time and the resulting photos are beautiful. Some of our favorite shots were the ones we didn’t even realize Ryan was taking – the candid portraits that truly captured our 1.5 year old and our relationship with her. Having family photos with all of us is rare and Ryan has given us some real treasures. Ryan has a very gentle manner that worked wonderfully with our young daughter and really allowed her personality to shine. The photo shoot was faster than we imagined, which is helpful when you are dealing with young children. Ryan is very helpful, generous, and talented, and we recommend him highly to all.

Jessica – Greenfield, Massachusetts 

He was so sweet and patient with me, I am so picky with photos and after three hours of photographing me he was still super sweet. I loved the photos when I got them back, I will not be doing pictures with anyone else!

Rocio – Clare, Michigan

Loved the way Ryan was patient with all the people at the medical fraternity. Definitely asking him to come back again next year to take pictures again.

Suneeti – Mt Pleasant, Michigan

I had the pleasure of having Ryan Watkins take two of my favorite photos for my modeling portfolio. He was always in contact with me when scheduling and was flexible around my schedule but also took his time to hand deliver the images to me with a CD. When shooting he allowed me to have input on what I wanted to wear or how to pose but also brought along props that added character to my wardrobe like the two amazing hats I used. He also creatively handled the lighting and directed me to position myself to capture a perfect image and gave a lot of positive reinforcement when he liked a pose allowing me to learn my own best angle for the shoot. I know if I needed more direction he would graciously give it. He did not rush and gave me his full attention and planned out the timing well with outdoor lighting and he is a professional at indoor lighting as well. while modeling i got to see the photos throughout the shoot and it helped me position myself and feel confident. He is not only a great photographer but a warm personality and a pleasure to work with and be around!

Bryana – Amherst, Massachusetts 

I met Ryan through a friend—we were booking joint modeling sessions–and after that, I reached out to Ryan several more times to work with him for other projects. Ryan is one of the most lovely photographers I’ve worked with. He’s cheerful, kind, puts you at ease—and his photographs are absolutely stunning. I have only ever had positive experiences with him. Would highly recommend!

Chelsea – Ann Arbor, Michigan 

While working together he was very friendly, respectful and knowledgeable. It was a pleasure working with him! He got photos to me quickly as well. 

I have since worked with him a few different times and he continues to be on time with photos and always delivers what I envisioned!

Summer – Rosebush, Michigan
