I’m Ryder, a wedding photographer who travels across Australia and internationally to shoot the most incredible people in love. It is here that I share those stories and most beautiful celebrations with you, so relax, grab a cup of coffee and take a look around.
Latest work (and some old faves!)
Destination weddings I’ve been lucky to capture
I first met Maggie + Mitch at another awesome wedding earlier this year – more on that one soon – so when they contacted me about their very own wedding to be held in Italy, I was pretty excited. After catching up via Skype to hear more about their plans, I knew this one was going to be on another level.
I met the lovely Amie + Dave, via planner / stylist extraordinaire, Lisa of Isla & Smith (whom I worked with a little while back on this shoot). I have been super lucky to travel for a number of destination weddings over the years, but having never been to Spain before, when London-based Amie & Dave asked me to be a part of their celebration, my wife and I packed our suitcases quicker than you can say ‘hola!’
Kind Words from Lovely Folk
My gosh, thank you so much for our photos. We laughed and smiled the whole way through the gallery - we are utterly obsessed with them! There are so many moments we had forgotten or didn't realise you were capturing. We cannot wait to share these photos wth our friends and family and remind everyone of their hilarious dance floor behaviour and photo booth antics. Thank you so much for everything, these photos truly are perfect.- COURT + IZAAK
Ryder was the perfect photographer for our wedding. We wanted to capture natural moments throughout the day with as little posing as possible. Ryder was effortless and captured every special moment without it ever feeling forced or unnatural. We are very grateful to him and love the way he photographed the best day of our lives!- NAOMI + CALEB
We fell in love with the technical and emotional aspects of Ryder’s work and also the way that he spoke about people – we could tell that he was the kind of person we wanted on our day. Ryder has a great way of making you feel totally relaxed and at ease, allowing you to behave as you would naturally together – he often took photos without us even realising and managed to get all those special moments. We loved Ryder!- MEGAN + JONO
Set at the beautiful Rae’s on Wategos, a host of local wedding vendors and I collaborated on this Amalfi Coast inspired shoot.
I was thrilled to be a part of the Byron Bay Bridal Showcase once again this year, paired with some of the best in the industry on team ‘Country Fete’.
Hello there friends – boy do I have a treat for you today! As part of the Byron Bay Bridal Showcase, which you can read more about here, I was paired with a group of very talented vendors to form ‘Team Spring’ and in the lead up to the event, we came together to produce a bohemian-inspired styled shoot. The vendors set out to create a look and feel that encapsulates Byron, using a base of golden tones, white wash and dark timbers, paired with beautiful textures and colour. Set on the amazing byronviewfarm, each vendor blew me away with their creativity… I was in total awe of what they all came up with and our models Hannah and Nick totally nailed it. Samantha Fletcher, our team cinematographer, put together an incredible behind-the-scenes video which you can view here.** For anyone on the lookout for an awesome cinematographer, Sam & Lachy are the bees
