Why Ryan Bennett Photography?  

As a professional photographer and musician, I have travelled all over the world from Trinidad to Paris to Madagascar.  My unusual path has included a wide array of experiences and opportunities, all of which I bring to the table.  

I have an easy-going, personable style that puts people at ease in front of the camera, allowing their unique essence and experiences to be captured and shared with family, friends, and the world.

I love to collaborate with couples to get a feel for your personal style and photographic preferences. For each wedding or big life event, I join the planning process early on, helping you structure the day for ideal photographic opportunities. It’s important to me to keep your big day as relaxed and fun as possible!


"My husband and I chose to have a very small destination wedding in Paris.  We really wanted our photography to not just provide beautiful memories, but also to be the visual story of our wedding weekend to our friends and family at home who couldn't journey to France.  Ryan has a great eye for finding locations, moments to capture and made suggestions while also remaining amenable to any requests we had. Working with him was effortless and really enjoyable; a true artistic professional!" -Molly R.  

"Ryan and Jo Ann did an excellent job with our wedding photos, and they beautifully captured the mood of our special day. They were also very professional and equally friendly. We happily recommend them for your photography needs!" - Laura P. 

“Ryan and his wife Jo Ann made such a good team taking photos! A few days before wedding, we took photos in iconic places in the downtown Kansas City area. This is where I got my first taste of just how amazing my wedding pictures were going to be! They made us feel so comfortable and our poses felt natural. He was so calm and professional, and that really helped me on my big day. He captured beautiful memories for us to remember one of the best days of our lives!” -Kristin B.
