waking up at 4:30 am gives a person a very unique start to his day. as i began my day early, joining the few restless individuals who had started their day even earlier than i, i waited. i waited for the rest of the world to stretch its arms, take in a deep breath, and begin thursday. and then i got excited.

i got excited, because over the past few months, i have been asked to work with some great clients (thank you for choosing ME to work with YOU... each of you make my job, which i love, possible), and i have also begun rubbing elbows with some seasoned photog's, both in person and in the blogosphere (thank you for your comments and encouragement). on top of that, my friends and family have gotten involved, and added tremendous value to my life and my business, which lucky for me, are one-in-the-same. i got excited, because YOUR story, has become MY story, and in that, my story has begun to expand and develop.

my web presence is now just a bit bigger, as you can now check my blog via gabrielryanphotoblog.com. i have also been developing a website, which i hadn't planned on releasing until january, but now should be ready within the next couple of weeks. and, on top of this, i will be shooting for none other than dane sanders at one of his weddings in santa barbara next month (fyi, santa barbara is one of my favorite places in the world and rests near to my heart).

so, since each of you reading this have added a bit to my story, our story, i hope that you can share in this excitement. thank you. you really do continue to add value.

and, make sure to check back for the release of the gabriel.ryan.photographer. website soon...


  1. Congrats! I look forward to seeing your posts on all the great things God has in store for you.

  2. I am so excited I found your blog. It's fun to watch and read what another person is going through at the same time. I hope someday our paths will cross.


  3. NO FAIR!!!! Dane has such mad skills and seems like one of the most humble and kind photographers out there - enjoy that, you will definitely be the envy of us!!! I'm coming to a shootshop in oceanside next month - I don't suppose you guys are attending that, are you?

  4. yes, i am totally blessed to be working with dane (keep an eye out for some fun stuff with fast track coming around the corner). and no we won't be at the shootshop workshop next month... when is it? maybe we could grab lunch, the parsons' and the davis'

  5. it's going to be a total blitz trip, and it's just me (ash), jer will be home with our kiddos. So maybe next time we can hook up, because we would absolutely love to get to know you and your fabulous bride!
