Ryan McCauley Photography

I’m the smiling, ginger bearded face behind the camera. For the past seven years I’ve been lucky enough to share the most amazing experiences of kindness, friendship, family, honesty, devotion and most importantly, Love. These all take on many different forms between the couples I photograph and that’s what keeps me coming back for more. Love is not rigid, fixed and fastened, it’s passionate, spontaneous, messy, soft spoken and loud and proud at the same time, it’s as diverse as the people I photograph and that what excites me the most. I always encourage you to celebrate your love for each other in the way you know best, I just get to come along for the ride and make sure it’s documented, honestly and unobtrusively so those precious moments can be cherished forever.

“Ryan photographed our day in a beautifully raw and undisturbed way. He moved around quietly and non intrusively. Some of the best pictures of our day are of our friends and family simply laughing and enjoying themselves”

Having worked with Ryan for many years when we decided to get married we had to check his availability to photograph the big day before confirming our date! Ryan is calm under pressure, magically invisible during the ceremony, and under control during the creative shoot ensuring the best of every moment is captured during the day. We could not be more thrilled with our wedding photos and love looking back at them to relive the day. I strongly recommend Ryan to anyone looking to have their wedding captured by a creative professional with an easy going nature, and who wants an amazing collection of timeless photos to enjoy for many years to come.

Ryan perfectly captured our day. Not only were the photos stunning, he made the whole experience fun, relaxing and memorable.

As a photographer and as a really good friend, we couldn't have asked for a better photographer. A huge thanks to Ryan for capturing the emotion and love on our day. To be able to make the photos look like it wasn't blowing a gale is a skill in itself. Thanks for making us feel natural and at ease even when nerves were flying from all directions. From hiking 8 hours up a mountain for an engagement shoot to standing in the windy Wellington night, you've seen our ups and our downs and we wouldn't have wanted to share it with anyone else.
