"When we started planning, we immediately agreed on two things: get married in Iceland, & hire the best photographer we could find. We spent months researching companies all over the United States & Europe, & confidently booked the Rylands upon seeing their work. I can say, without a doubt, hiring Desiree & Hunter was the best decision we made in the wedding process. Every person that attended the wedding told us how spectacular our photographers were. Hunter & Desiree weren’t just a crew we hired to photograph our Iceland wedding, but instead had become part of the family. They took the time & learned each of our family & friend’s names, mingled with everyone, & blended in like they were with us for years."
"I’ve never experienced two photographers that were so creative, efficient, cohesive, and friendly. They are truly the top wedding photographers in New Orleans. Every single photo they took was amazing."
"Hiring The Rylands as our photographers was the best decision we made for our wedding, & having HD Photobooth Co. at our reception was the icing on the cake! Hunter and Desiree were so sweet and clearly loved what they were doing, and that made the experience a truly enjoyable one. We loved them so much, that the night of our wedding, we even spontaneously invited them to join us on our honeymoon to Mexico to photograph & explore. The honeymoon was absolutely incredible. We both agreed it was the best vacation either of us had ever been on, and much of that is credit to Hunter and Desiree. They documented our love story from our engagement photos, to our wedding day, having their HD Photobooth Co. at our reception & then our honeymoon. The Rylands blew us away."

"We had a destination wedding on the beach in Cancun, and after researching many photographers in Cancun and contacting several near home, I saw photos from a wedding that they did and knew it was the exact style I was going for - natural intimate photos that don't look overly "posed". I honestly can't speak highly enough of Desiree and Hunter, and definitely recommend hiring them as your photographers."
The night of Grace & Zach's wedding, we got invited to their after-party. Not to photograph, but because we really connected with them throughout their wedding day. We didn't want it to end after that night.
One thing led to another & about 24 hours later, we were on the plane with them to their Mexican honeymoon. We spent the next 5 days documenting their adventures from a distance & having the time of our lives.
Years from now, you'll remember your wedding day by looking back at your photographs.
It's super important to find a photographer you feel comfortable with & who will deliver great work to be cherished for a lifetime afterwards.
