A bit about me

My name is Ryan Paulsen, and I love taking pictures. From my earliest photographic memories involving a tiny, nearly-disposable Vivitar point-and-shoot film camera through the haphazard shoot-at-everything high school years to my travels around the world with increasingly sophisticated digital camera technology, the capturing of images and memories has always been a driving force for me.

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”

-Ansel Adams-

For the past several years, I’ve been lucky enough to apply my passion for photography to the most important moments and times in others’ lives, whether it’s preserving the memories of a wedding day or simply taking the time to take the perfect encapsulation of a young child’s budding personality. I love the emotions, the candor, the joy and the simple reality that I get to preserve forever each and every time I press the shutter release. Each moment becomes a monument for my clients, and I take great pains to ensure that everything works. Whether it’s a family shoot at a local playground or a lavish celebration of a lifetime’s commitment, the memories are what’s important, and those memories are what I deliver to my clients.

If you have any questions at all, or want to discuss your specific needs further, visit my contact page and send me a message. I’ll respond as soon as possible and we can talk about how we can work together to make your moments into memories that will last forever.
