5-Star Photographer!
My husband and I eloped in August and Ryo came highly recommended when we were searching for a photographer to capture our day. He did not disappoint. He got some amazing shots (especially if our one year old ) that we will cherish forever and help remind us how special our day was. He had great instinct for where to get pictures around our wedding venue, and his editing style is *chefs kiss*. You will not be disappointed if you hire Ryo to capture your special day.

Perfect Wedding Photographer
Ryo from Indigo Images was absolutely superb and professional in his craft. We loved the photographs which were taken in our wedding and the post production and hosting of our albums. He was friendly, patient and natural in his approach and we felt at ease during the photoshoots. We were left to enjoy our day without stress and trust Ryo in his process and as we later found, received a great natural result of beautiful moments, smiles and laughs. I highly recommend his work and I would not hesitate in recommending and engaging him for future family events.

Pure Magic!
Myself and my husband got married in June this year and Ryo was the perfect photographer. He easily bonded with my family and captured unique moments during our special day. He recommended a beautiful spot near Mayfair for some outdoor couple shots and the whole setting was picture-perfect. The magic didn’t stop there, after the day Ryo shared a link to all our digital photos, with clear folders for example ‘couples’, ‘ceremony’ which made all the difference when filtering through the photos! :)

Highly recommend!
We were very lucky to find Ryo and have him as our photographer on the day. Prior to the wedding Ryo was really great with communications, responsive, answered all our questions. On the day Ryo was just perfect as a photo partner! He made us feel at ease and was very flexible and reactive to our quite tight schedule on the day (we wanted to cover quite a lot of photo spots on the grounds of the venue but has only 1.3h for the couple shoot but despite short time and a big wish list Ryo made it happen!). Overall Ryo was with us during 6 hours and his presence was almost unnoticeable and the great and important thing was that his cameras are silent and so we did not hear any photo sounds:) Ryo had a documentary photo style as we really asked for this kind of an approach rather then staged. All felt really natural and very often we did not even know when we were being photographed which made such a great discovery when we for the pictures, he captured every previous moment! Equally he did a great job for our more classic couple pictures where we had to pose, we are very happy with our couple shots! But most of all, Ryo took the photos delivery and retouch very seriously, he managed to polish, retouch and turn into perfection photos that had some occasional things that were not perfect in our pov. We really appreciated the efforts he put into it as it’s so important to look at the wedding pictures and see “perfect” as you imagine it!:) All in all don’t hesitate, Ryo will be a great photo partner for your day!

Incredibly talented photographer
Ryo is an incredibly talented photographer. We had a rainy wedding day, and he still managed to capture absolutely gorgeous photos. He captured the essence of the day - his photos really highlighted my feelings, the feelings of my husband, and those of all of our family and friends throughout the day and evening. We really felt we could be ourselves around Ryo and it shows in the photos! Cannot recommend him enough - he is friendly, kind and professional.

Ryo was simply a wonderful wedding photographer.
Ryo was simply a wonderful wedding photographer. He offered us a complimentary pre-wedding shoot, where we got to know him, and as a couple who were a little camera shy, Ryo put us at ease. He understood what we wanted from him, which was to capture us in our natural state. Where we needed direction, he gave this to us, but for the most part he worked to capture us as we were, and not in an overly posed state. He was able to mimic this on the day itself, making both us and our guests feel so comfortable. The images were beautiful, captured our bright colour scheme, and Ryo was able to get all of our guests in the pictures. The only slight drawback is that we felt there could have been more editing, as we had a fire escape sign that featured in some of our loveliest pictures. We wished this was cropped out. With this said, this was not discussed before hand, and nor did it take away from the wonderful job that Ryo did from start to finish. He was efficient, culturally sensitive and brilliantly communicative throughout the process. We are so grateful to have had Ryo capture our special day.

Frequently Asked Questions
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

The wedding at The Savoy in London. What a venue, amazing location even a boat trip down the thames and a fantastic photo shoot with the couple. The Savoy will always have a special place in my heart.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, Genuine, Emotion, Love, Romantic.

What about your business are you most proud of?

My personal approach to each and every single couple. I make sure from even before you book me to on the day, you have everything you need from me as your photographer.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

I have two tips. I might be a bit biased, but I tell my couples never compromise on capturing your memories. Your day flashes by so quickly it is so important to make sure your memories are there after the day for you to look through, so you can look back at your day and re-live the excitement, joy and love of your wedding day. Another thing is that I tell every couple that they should try and keep the formal lineup list as short as they possibly can as its never a great experience to keep your guests standing around during your wedding reception. Keep it to the must haves and there's always time throughout the rest of your day to have more pictures with your guests.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I don't necessarily have a favourite. Just make your wedding right for YOU. Make it yours and everything else will follow.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I will be there in person from start to finish. I meet couples in person to give advice on their individual needs. If possible I try and do a pre-wedding shoot with every couple so you get to know me before your day, and that you are comfortable around me and my camera.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Every couple is different, don't follow trends just because you think you need to. I make photography personal to you and your day.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

The groom arriving to the venue on a horse. That was definitely memorable.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Get creative with umbrellas and a bit of reverse flash for an unforgettable dramatic couples shoot.

Describe how you got into photography.

I began my photography journey in my teenage years with my uncle's old Nikon traditional film camera from the 60's. Manually photographing, developing and printing my images in the darkroom. I became a passionate teller of stories through imagery, photographing moments that meant something, for people that really care. After graduating with a BA(Hons) Photography degree from Nottingham Trent University, I trained and worked as an advertising and fashion photographer in London and around Europe where I gained a deep understanding of communication through imagery and the use of light on people and their surroundings. Combining this with my love of natural, documentary-based imagery led me towards pursuing wedding photography in my own unique way. Since photographing my first wedding in 2012 and absolutely falling in love with it, I decided to blend all my experience from studio and editorial work while exploring the creative process of wedding photography. With an emphasis for capturing those fleeting moments often missed by other photographers and a keen eye for details and emotion, I started my own brand which eventually became Indigo Images. I love what I do and look forward to the uniqueness each wedding has to offer. It’s an absolute joy for me to photograph weddings! I would be honoured to tell your story and capture your once in a lifetime moments.
