We are Sarah (Lockhart) + Tim (Ryon)
A husband and wife run company specializing in wedding and lifestyle photography since 2011. We met at a photo production studio in 2008,
moved in together less than 6 months later (much to our parents chagrin- sorry, guys!) and never, ever looked back.
Family has always come first to us, whether immediate or chosen and this became even truer with the birth of our son Kai in 2019!!
Running a small business with a tiny human along for the ride has brought us closer as a couple, and in turn, stronger as a family company.
Sarah is our lead photographer, and Tim runs the crucial behind-the-scenes work that ensures everyone has the seamless experience our clients have come to
know and love over the years! We have a small team of talented associates that work closely with Sarah whom we are eternally grateful for.
While we are currently based in Brooklyn, we spend a good portion of our lives on an airplane flying back and forth between NYC and CA.
Getting married in LA?! Not a problem- we work as locals there! And since this incredible job has taken us (kind of literally) all over the world,
we now make a point to donate a portion of each booking to One Tree Planted.
We have a psycho red-headed mutt with the biggest underbite you’ve ever seen and we are obsessed with him. Sarah has
never met a taco (or margarita) she hasn’t loved and Tim makes the yummiest chocolate chip cookies known to man.
We firmly believe love is love, Black Lives Matter, climate change is real, and kindness + empathy can move mountains.
We approach your day with a sense of photojournalism and an eye for the artful details and thoughtful touches that are meaningful to
you as a couple. With this being said, it is the raw emotions and in-between moments that we live for.
Your complete gallery will be a blend of authentic candid moments, artistic imagery, and delicate details.
And our careful attention to post-production ensures a timeless feel (no trendy filters added to our work)!
On your wedding day, we are a calm, reassuring presence for you. Since each wedding/session is so different, we are experts at reading the room, the mood,
and the emotions, so that each photo is a beautiful reflection of your love, relationship and community. As a self-described introvert and deeply
empathetic about what it means to be camera-shy, Sarah knows *exactly* what to do and say to get you feeling and looking your best.
We feel so damn lucky to do what we do.
Really. The love and support we’ve received over the years from clients-turned-friends is truly astonishing. We can’t wait to work with you.
This isn’t just a job for us.
Being invited to document such a significant and personal life event is a privilege we can’t fully describe.
YOUR WEDDING PHOTOS // OUR APPROACH
'Sarah and Tim are simply AMAZING! After booking the venue, they were the very first vendor we booked and
it was the easiest decision we made. From our initial ‘meeting’ with Sarah on Skype to finally seeing all of our gorgeous photos,
it was such a flawless and enjoyable experience. My husband and I wanted to make sure the photographer we
chose was someone who could capture our day as organically as possible and Sarah and her associate did just that. Actually they did more than that—
they somehow captured every special moment (both big and small) all while making us look like professional models.
Leading up to the wedding, Sarah was responsive and true to her deadlines, and her genuine kindness, compassion,
understanding and laid back vibe instantly put us at ease during the stressful planning months.
On the day of the wedding they were incredibly fun to be around and made us feel very comfortable— at times we would not even realize they were there!
They were such a power team, working together seamlessly to ensure we got all the shots we wanted and then some. Their laid back, fun vibe was a pleasure
to be around all day and they somehow managed to wrangle our giant (sometimes rowdy) wedding party together to get some truly incredible photos.
I personally loved how Sarah was open to taking more out-of-the-box photos— which turned out to be some of my favorites. She
also captured the little quiet moments throughout the day that were so special to us and something we will keep close to our hearts forever.
Overall, I could not have imagined a better team to be with on our wedding day. These guys are really more than photographers.
We felt we were in safe hands throughout the entire process and when we finally met, it was like having two friends there with you.
Their endless talent and professionalism shines through, allowing you to relax and have the best day of your lives.
Words cannot express how in love we are with every single photo they captured from our wedding.
Choosing Ryon/Lockhart Photography to document our wedding was without a doubt the easiest and best decision we made for our day.
They are such wonderful and kind people and absolutely remarkable photographers. Not only do we have the most
beautiful pictures to last a lifetime, it’s a connection that we look forward to continue in the future.’
