BOOK YOUR WEDDING

STORY

Our names are Ryan and sheri, and we are the artists behind Our Story Creative. But, boy, did we ever take a crazy road to get here!


We were initially sucked into the world of photography and videography by one simple, selfish desire: to document the life we were building together. When we started dating, we always had our beginner’s camera on hand to snap photos and no idea at all what we were doing, but we delighted in the occasional “good one” we managed to take. Several years later, boyfriend and girlfriend became husband and wife. Sheri was pursuing a degree in speech pathology while Ryan was working his way toward becoming a physician, and because of the endless hours devoted to studying, classwork and rotations, we realized that our camera had begun gathering dust. So, we came up with a plan. 

Every weekend, we drove to a different place in Southern California, trusty camera firmly in hand, and we took a short time-lapse clip. After a year, Ryan stitched it all together and released the video: “A Day in California.” It went viral overnight and inspired us to leave our intended career paths and pursue our joint passion together. 

Today, we are a traveling wedding photography and cinematography duo with six years of experience in creating unique, natural, personality-packed photos and videos. Sheri’s superpower is her ability to walk into any wedding and instantly see how to tell a cohesive story with her camera, and Ryan’s greatest talent lies in directing…and becoming every wedding guest’s BFF ending the night as an honorary groomsman. We live for the beauty that comes from moments of pure, authentic joy, so we put together galleries that truly encapsulate a wedding day, without making couples feel as though they just spent the entire day posing for a camera. 

When we aren’t trading stories with new clients over coffee or editing away on our latest batch of images, you can catch our tight-knit family of four cozied up for a night in or off on a spontaneous adventure!

This year, we’ve already got shoots scheduled in Hawaii, Iceland, Greece, Paris and so many more incredible places, so whether you’re tying the knot abroad, or saying “I do” on our own sunny California shores, give us a shout! Let’s tell your love story!

HEY, I'M RYAN

To speak in Game of Thrones terms... I am Jon Snow, but with a camera.  While I'm not really sure what that means, I think you might feel me on some level.

I have such a blessed life, and it's all due to my terrific wife and kids.  Those three can light up the darkest parts of the ocean, and they're my daily inspiration for everything that I do.

While never really the goal, I usually become best friends with the bride and groom on their wedding day.  I'm big of getting authentic laughs and genuine smiles, and usually know just what to say to make people happy ( and comfortable in front of the camera).

I'm a mom of two cute kiddos, one crazy dog and a husband of 9+ years who I've dubbed my 3rd child (if you know, you know), who I love with my whole heart.  I consider coffee my daily treat (and necessity for survival) and will never deny a cheese plate or a piece of dark chocolate.  I'm a self proclaimed DIY expert.  I take it as a personal challenge and will go to great lengths to prove I can do something myself and do it well (trust me I try it ALL).  I will neither confirm or deny the occasional mess or amount of work involved when I choose to take matters into my own hands... but will always say it was worth it! I'm a glass half full kind of girl and can find the joy and upside in any situation.
       I'm into the small things, the details that work as the thread in the bigger picture of a wedding day- and believe it's those things that tie it all together.  My approach to your wedding day is making sure your images as a whole are cohesive and perfectly curated so that when you see your gallery, you are brought right back to that very day... the happiest day of your life.

HI! I'M SHERI

   Our little girl Leah was born late 2011 and when she was 6 months old we were blessed with the news that in early 2013 our little boy Elijah would come join the party and complete our hearts.  That's right, our two little ones are a mere 15 months apart and that gets about as crazy as it sounds but has also been the funnest part about our family and something we would never want to change!  They are best friends and it's the sweetest being able to see them grow up together.  In 2018 we decided our lives weren't crazy enough and so entered a little pomeranian-chihuahua mix pup named Giuseppe (or Seppe for short).
    When we aren't shooting weddings, we are spending our time camping out for movie nights, crafting away, playing the newest board game our kids have found, or out exploring making epic family videos, and capturing our very own memories.
