Ryan is our go-to photographer for San Francisco Bay Area weddings, San Francisco engagement photos and San Francisco family portrait sessions. Ryan is one of the most sincere, sensitive and motivated people you’ll ever meet. Our clients adore him!
Ryan’s energy is infectious. Couples and families choose him because of his positive attitude, creative ideas, and ability to capture people in their happiest, best moments. Plus he’s amazing with children – getting lots of daily practice on his own two young boys, Nolan and Darien!
Ryan spent his childhood in Shanghai (he’s fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese and Japanese) before becoming a San Franciscan in his early teens. His business education never fulfilled him like his love for photography, and Ben and Erin were waiting for him to want to join Chrisman Studios the moment he said he was ready. Since that point, Ryan has photographed weddings from San Francisco to New York to Mexico, always bringing that smile and positive energy to every person he sees.
Charming, talented, and hardworking, Ryan is exactly what any bride would hope for. He lives in Daly City right outside of San Francisco with his wife, Bonnie, and sons Nolan and Darien.
