Ryan did a fantastic job photographing our wedding! His shots were thoughtful, creative, and consistently professional. He gave direction and suggestions when needed, but was never pushy about a shot. In fact, he seemed open to ideas and had a gracious, collaborative air about him that made the whole process seem effortless, and even fun. Ryan’s calm, confident demeanor throughout the process made us trust that we were in capable hands—and we were! Thanks for the great work, Ryan!

Ryan Gearhart captured the best day in our lives thus far – he made the day stress free as he organized the fam, friends, and wedding party. Our pics remain precious memories and certainly out shine any other photographer’s work! We are eternally grateful to Ryan for his Photo genius. He was able to help our two nationalities share memories, laughs, and much joy!!! We certainly recommend Ryan for anyone who’s getting married and wants to remember the day with love!

Ryan, another big thanks, for helping make Steve and Maaris wedding day a success! They both loved your gallery of photos. They said it was all they had hoped for. We felt you were thorough and professional. You got shots we thought nobody remembered to get. I would in a heart beat recommend you for anybody’s wedding. You really went above and beyond. It was a joy having you.

It was a pleasure working with North Star Photographs! Ryan has a way of capturing the depth, emotion and energy of a moment and creating a tangible memory to have for years. His photographs of our young family are a treasure! I’ve taken a million snapshots of my son, but none that compare to the detail and artistry of Ryan’s photos. His patience and creativity when working with babies and children is remarkable and I couldn’t recommend him more highly to anyone interested in working with a professional photographer!

My husband and I were married in August of 2009. We chose to be married at 8am with our reception starting at 2pm. To our surprise, Ryan was willing to be the photographer. My husband and our families could not have gotten better service anywhere else. Ryan was prepared and very punctual. Yes, even in a small wedding that is very important. Ryan was patient and willing to work with us for all our requests. On our special day my husband and I were wrapped up in the moment, but never realized the photos that Ryan had taken. I have seen friends and families wedding photos, but never had I seen photos like his. He captured friends and family interacting, me smashing the cake in my husband’s face, and everything else from the first dance till the last guest. The most pleasing news of all, was when Ryan brought us the proofs. So many moments, my husband and I had missed. Ryan caught all of them, and from a distance… we never knew he was there. The minute you walk into our home, there is a picture of me and my husband, looking over a beautiful waterfall together. This picture is the shot that holds the house together. For years to come, we both know, we will be fine, and if ever any doubt we can just look to that perfect picture.
