One half of the business - Ryan Harris
With an exciting year ahead of us I thought i’d take the time to write a quick blog giving a little background about myself and an insight into what led to myself and my good friend Andy to launch our wedding photography business.
The banner is set, the album showcasing our work is being printed as I write and with 5 wedding fairs booked this year I cant wait to chat with happy couples and talk about their special day.
So a little bout me, I grew up in Walsall and first found i had a flair for photography in my teenage years at GCSE level, since then my passion rekindled and i investing in trading and a new Nikon DSLR camera. I’m a 34 year old very proud father to my beautiful little girl Lyla, who on a related note was in January this year awarded the under 15’s 2018 Wolverhampton Young Photographer of the year award ( Very proud dad moment ) This girl fills me with pride every day and I love that photography is something we both share a passion for.
Along with my daughter I live in Willenhall, West Midlands with my lovely partner Emily who works as a teacher, a profession I have the upmost admiration for, there is no more important a job for me than moulding the minds of the future.
Two years ago I launched my own photography business www.ryanjharrisphotography.co.uk , at first holding portrait shoots for children and families, this quickly expanded and I took on work from local businesses alongside portrait work.
During those two years I jointly worked on two weddings with a friend of mine and got some great feedback and experience, this was something I thoroughly enjoyed doing, as a photographer capturing emotion and expression is really important to me and what better opportunity than a wedding where excitement joy and laughter is plentiful.
Having worked in customer services throughout my career, customer service is absolutely paramount to me, and in a very competitive market I think that is crucial to success. Having known Andy ( the other half of the business ) for a number of years I know this is something that is important to him too.
So thats it really, just a little bit about myself I am the R in AR wedding photography, I hope to meet you soon.
