Meet: Brandi + Ryan

Meet Brandi: I was born and raised in a small farming community in Illinois. I got my start in photography as a journalist in the United States Air Force where I learned to shoot film. After moving all around the world the original contact sheets from my days at the Defense Information School are some of my most treasured pieces. I’m still obsessed with 35mm film photography and I carry it everywhere I go. I’m sensitive. A hopeless romantic. Fall in NYC is my favorite. My girls are my world. I love to travel and dream about living in Europe again. Pink is my favorite color, I love a good laugh and meeting new people.

Meet Ryan: I was born and raised in a Salt Lake City, Utah and have a completely different path to photography than Brandi. Opposites attract right? I got my undergrad at the University of Utah and my MBA from Notre Dame. I’m a sports guy – I watched the game with my dad growing up and needless to say, I can name 52,948,930 random facts about college football. Not really, but close. My favorite thing to photograph at weddings are the candid moments. Those moments when people don’t even realize the camera is around. The raw emotion on a wedding day gets me every time.

About us: We’re Brandi + Ryan, the husband-wife photographers behind Alexis June Weddings. So who is Alexis June? They are the two loves of our life, our daughters, Kierstyn {whose middle name is Alexis} and Kaija {who was born in June}. Two years ago we sold everything we own to pursue our dreams and move across the country to NYC. We’ve been married for ten years and still crazy in love. Ryan speaks Norwegian. Brandi loves everything about Norway. Ryan has his MBA from Notre Dame, but loves to cook. Brandi was a journalist in the United States Air Force and eats everything Ryan cooks. Together with our girls we live in Queens, NY and cherish every day together.

Being wedding photographers is an honor and a privilege, to be a part of one of the most important moments in a someone’s life is deeply personal. Capturing a couple’s love story together makes what we do even more special. We have laughed, we have cried and we have experienced those joyous moments when its more about two individuals joining as one and less about the details. It’s about the marriage. It’s about the future. Love is a gorgeous thing and we are truly passionate about what we do. We believe everyone has a story and it should be told.

This is our story, what is Yours?

What is your favorite moment at a wedding?

Brandi: My favorite moment is when a couple is pronounced married and they walk down the aisle together for the first time. The look, the excitement, the love. It gets me every single time!

What is the best part about your job?

Brandi: The best part of the job is getting to know the couples. I spent 15 years in Advertising and Marketing and pride myself on creating personal relationships. For us, it’s not about showing up on a couple’s wedding day and meeting them for the first time. We’re there well beyond that, from the maternity session to birth and even first birthdays. This is really the best job EVER!!!

Where do you draw inspiration from when preparing for each wedding?

We draw inspiration from movies, fashion, travel. To be able to just sit and observe the light, the sounds, the smells makes us better photographers and documentarians.

Share something that is unique to you and/or your business.

We’re a husband and wife team and have been married for ten years.
