Acclaimed wedding and portrait photographer John Ryan is known for his relaxed approach, great sense of fun and unfailing ability to produce natural and beautiful photographs.

Since opening his studio in Terenure, John has photographed some of the most high profile Irish weddings including Nicky Byrne & Georgina Ahern, Cecelia Ahern's secret wedding to David Keoghan, Brian O'Driscoll & Amy Huberman, Jenny Buckley, Ciaran McManus and Dave Brown of the Irish Band Picturehouse.

Whether it’s a family portrait, wedding or modelling headshot, John takes every photo himself to guarantee the personal touch.  Clients trust him and appreciate his quiet discretion when documenting the big events in their lives.

In the studio or out at a wedding venue, he’ll use the location, the angles and the special moments of the day to create pictures that capture your memories perfectly. 

Clients know and trust John’s artistic eye and appreciate his personal, discreet approach to their nuptials.  He looks for the candid moments...the gentle whisper at the altar, a mother’s happy tears or the couple’s gentle, encouraging kiss before the reception.  He’s a gentle observer from the early morning preparations until the happy couple sit for dinner.  His distinctive ability, energy and warmth captures the uniqueness of each wedding experience.

    We cant recommend John Ryan highly enough; he was the most amazing wedding photographer who was a true gentleman from start to finish.
    John kindly traveled to France for our wedding and spent the weekend with us going out of his way to make us relaxed while taking amazing photos- if only we could have put them all in our album!! People always said that the professional shots on the day could be quite annoying and would take hours, but for us that was one of the best parts of the day, weve never laughed so much. John made it all so relaxed and easy from start to finish. He really captured a sense of fun on the day and everybody at the wedding got on great with him. He is very creative and has great ideas to get photos that arent typically staged and boring.
    We are thrilled with all the photos, his layout of the album was amazing with great attention to detail. The album tells the perfect story of our day and captures all the precious moments shared with each other and our families and friends. It wouldnt have been so memorable without him. He really went to so much effort and we are so grateful.
    We look forward to using John again and again in the years to come!
    Thanks for everything John.

  • If I could do it all again I would without a doubt book John Ryan as my wedding photographer again!. John made our wedding day so much fun and very relaxed. When he arrived to the hotel on the morning of the wedding he was in great form, he picked my perfume (i had 2 perfumes and didn't know which to put on)....and then took some greats shots while we were all getting prepared for the big day!!! Throughout the day he was great and even made my mother very relaxed with the photos (as she hates having her photo taken)!!!! Since the wedding, we visited John's office to view our photos and what an amazing evening that was. It was like having our wedding day all over again. After a few weeks we got our album and I have to say its something that we both love and will cherish forever. He took some amazing shots which were very natural. We couldn't recommend John highly enough. To you, John, myself and Conor are truly grateful and we want to thank you for giving us some great memories of our special day......

  • Everybody tells you to cherish every moment of your wedding day because it is gone in a flash.... and it is ....unless you have John Ryan taking your photos.
    When we first met John we found him to be a very down to earth guy with a modern approach to photography. But as we got to know John on the run up to our wedding day, we found him to be a lot more. He became a good friend that helped and advised us an all aspects of our wedding not just photography. We could ask him anything and he always went out of his way to give support.
    When he arrived at my Mums house he really lit up the room, He made me feel so relaxed and helped out wherever he could. John directs you like a film director. Not only does he direct you poses but he brings calm and humour to the occasion. You know that stubborn relative that doesnt want to stand in the right position or the Bride (yes me) is tense, John has a way of teasing you into forgetting the camera is there even though it is glaring you in the face. He was also truly amazing with our little 4 year old girl who was being a typical difficult 4 year old!
    If what you want from your wedding day is a tiny little bit of the day to relish in, then dont go for John For what you get with John is a crescendo of high emotions that hit you wave after wave as you peruse through picture after picture of the highest quality.
    The most important thing for me (hate to admit it) was to make sure I found a photographer that made me look amazing on my wedding day, and John definitely did that! I almost didnt recognise myself!!

    Thank you John and your team, for doing such an amazing job before, during and after our wedding day.

  • Hi

    I have booked John for my Wedding in Dec. He has taken pictures of my Kids and family pictures over the last 5 years.

    He is a dream to work with. He seems to have a gift at getting brilliant pictures that seem very natural. Did not need to look around when it was time to book a photographer, I was always going to use him
