  • My husband and I don't really even have words to express how much we loved working with Ryan and Courtney. Hiring them was hands down the best and easiest decision we made in planning, AND the best part is that we made friends with some completely amazing, loving, adventure-seeking, genuine, passionate, joyful, incredibly talented people!!! Ryan, the main photographer, has so much creativity inside of him, it's immediately evident (basically palpable) upon meeting him, and he's just so good at what he does. We are so thankful he shares this talent with others. He was born to create and love others. He goes above and beyond capturing the emotion and depth of what's happening around you in every photo. He is so easy to be around and makes shooting with him fun, comfortable, and natural! He drove 4.5 hours to do mine and my husband's engagement shoot because 1) it was close and convenient for us, 2) it was somewhere new he hadn't been before and when he researched online and suggested it ...

  • I can't say enough good things about Ryan and Courtney! With having to reschedule our wedding TWICE (thanks COVID!), they were super flexible and able to work with us and the challenges we faced during this weird time. Having them as our photographers felt like hanging out with friends and they put two fairly awkward people at ease during photos. We will definitely be using them again in the future and highly recommend them to anybody who needs a wedding photographer!

    It was our pleasure to work with you two! We weren't going to let Covid get the best of us. It means so much to us that you guys feel as if you were shooting with friends rather than just another "vendor". We wish you guys the absolute best!

  • Ryan and Courtney are incredible at what they do. Their prices are out of this world which is great when you are having to spend money on other vendors! They make amazing photos and know where to take them. Their photos colors are one of the main things that drew me to them. Their photos are a vibe. They are so great to be around and make everything comfortable - especially for someone who feels awkward taking photos, like me! My photos were incredible and are something I will cherish forever!

  • Ryan and Courtney of Candle & Quill Photography were AMAZING to work with. They met up with us in the beginning and we immediately knew they would be super reliable and easy going. They traveled to Asheville, NC for our engagement shoot and braved the cold weather to get the exact pictures we wanted. They were so easy to communicate with and often times responded immediately! On our wedding day, they were professional and kept us on track so we didn't fall behind schedule. And O.M.G. the pictures are SO BEAUTIFUL. They exactly captured the emotions and mood of that day and every time I look at the pictures, I remember the excitement and love that surrounded us. Our entire experience with Candle & Quill was amazing and we highly recommend them!! Thanks Ryan and Courtney!

  • Booking Candle & Quill for our elopement was the best decision we made! Ryan has been wonderful since the day I first emailed about the idea of eloping in lieu of our wedding which we cancelled due to COVID. He was compassionate, responsive, and helped craft the perfect elopement day by helping us pick an elopement spot, nailing down a timeline, and putting the details together. Ryan never took more than a few hours to respond - most of the time he'd respond within the hour! Ryan & Courtney were so fun to be around on wedding day! They were professional and punctual, and were also great fun during our couples session. Courtney even carried my bag! If your fiance (husband!) is anything like mine, he was not too excited about the prospect of taking posed pictures. Ryan & Courtney made us feel happy, funny, quirky, and in love - and it shows in our pictures! We look so happy!! I LOVE photographers who document true happines rather than moody artistic ones. Thank you Ryan & Courtney for su... Read more

  • Ryan was absolutely amazing to work with on our wedding day and the photos turned out AMAZING. We were forced to reschedule our wedding due to covid and needed to find a photographer ASAP. From the beginning Ryan was super responsive and just awesome to work with. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience and Ryan is just a great person. Thank you for making our day so memorable!

  • Ryan was able to capture the best of moments of the entire day. From getting ready, Daddy seeing his little girl in her dress, to the good bye at the end of the night. All the pictures are fabulous! He is easy to work with and very flexible. You can't go wrong using him!!

    I had so much fun with you guys. We had a day full of rain, but we made the most of it and still caught some extremely beautiful moments! Thanks for your kind words!

  • Ryan and his wife, Courtney, took both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. I immediately fell in love with their photography style and it only took a few seconds on the phone chatting about what our photography vision was before we knew they were the perfect match. Ryan is always available to answer any question and he helped ease all of our fears leading up to our super rainy outdoor wedding. Despite the bad weather and less than ideal backup plan, our pictures were amazing. They perfectly captured our day from start to finish and were super flexible when things didn’t go as planned. We would 10/10 recommend Candle and Quill.

  • Ryan and Courtney were very nice to work with. The photos we have are beautiful. Ryan got them to us very fast. When the wedding is over you can't wait to see the pictures. We had them quick! Ryan is very responsive to questions, emails, and texts. My only regret is not having more posed pictures of me and my groom, which was completely our fault with bad time management.

  • My photographs came out perfect! Ryan is extremely flexible and very easy to get in touch with. You can see that he truly cares about his photography and he won’t just rush you along to get the job done. I originally found him by using hashtags on Instagram but I have no doubt that he will turn into a regular “preferred vendor”. Affordable for amazing quality AND care. I also got all of my photos in less than a month from my wedding! Ryan and his wife are a great team and do fantastic. More than likely to use again for future family events (:

  • Candle & Quill is a breeze to work with! We initially had them do our engagement photos and as soon as we got the photos back we knew we were going to hire them for our wedding too. They have such a great eye for detail, are unobtrusive when they’re shooting and have a unique style that really stands out. We’ve had so many compliments on our phots and I never get tired of looking at them. We definitely plan to hire them again once the family starts to grow ;)

    Jessie and Bryan, you guys were such a pleasure to work with. From the engagement session through the wedding day, you guys were top notch clients that put so much thought and energy into your wedding day and photography vision. We are honored to have worked with you guys, and are so lucky to now call you friends and part of the Candle & Quill family! We can't wait to watch you guys as you grow together and grow your family!
