What if a husband & wife decided to invest their time & talent into the weddings & marriages of those just beginning their journey? What if photography was more than just photos…but a story told by a couple who is passionate & dedicated to marriage. That was our dream…and Ryan O’Dowd Photography is where that dream comes true for us and our amazing couples. Welcome.

from a husband & wife photography team



There is something really neat about having people visiting, it is like having you in our home…but digitally :) We really hope you feel a deep sense of story as you browse the site…both learning about our story (personally and as photographers) and seeing photos of others stories we have had the honor to capture. To us, that is what it is all about, being a part of someone’s life and getting to document it in a way that brings joy, laughter and hope for a life together. We know searching for a Dallas wedding photographer can be challenging and a bit overwhelming…there is just so much to take in. Part of the challenge is finding someone who is both good & the right fit.

There is a certain personality, approach, & style you are looking for – which can be hard to distinguish on a website & portfolio. We hope to be as open as possible on the site to give you a little peek into our life. We want to show you some of our pictures but we also want you to get a sense of who we are. Hopefully we can grab coffee & get to know eachother a little more, but until then, as you search for a wedding photographer and other wedding vendors, we invite you to visit, email, or call whenever you want. If nothing else, we hope you leave my site with more clarity about what you are looking for in a wedding photographer & maybe some photo ideas for the wedding as well! we sincerely wish you the best in your search and would really love to help in any way we can!
