We are The Rylands — a husband & wife wedding photography team located in New Orleans, Louisiana. Our speciality is in creating experiences that best capture our couples - work we've been doing for nearly a decade.
Have you seen us before? We're also the proud owners of HD Photobooth Co. where we focus on flawless black & white portraits in a photobooth setting at your reception. This pairs seamlessly with our wedding photography services & can serve as a priceless favor for your guests!
The Rylands | Studio, located on Magazine Street, in New Orleans, Louisiana, allows clients ONE-ON-ONE photography sessions with Hunter & Desiree in their black & white studio setting.
CAZADOR Art Gallery is an artistic collaborative gesture between Hunter & Desiree. After almost 9 years working exclusively together in various photographic genres, the artwork was born. It encompasses a mixture of Hunter's photographic excellence with Desiree's artistic blind contour touch. All works are either photographed using Leica, SX-70 Polaroid, or Fujifilm Instax Wide.
We are The Rylands! After getting married in 2017, we decided it was only right to merge our brands, Desiree Watkins Photography & Hunter Ryland Photography, into one brand with both of us and our years of experience at the helm.
If you like a little adventure and fun, we’re the perfect match for you. Creating experiences that put you in your best element is our favorite part of the job. Our mission is to capture YOU and we strive to do that in the most creative, candid and relaxed way possible. Our photography has taken us to places all over the country & the world. Whether your wedding is here in New Orleans or elsewhere, we’re up for it.
