Melissa & Eric | 5.19.12 Monticello, FL

This wedding was so fun and sweet in every way! I came to meet Melissa because she was a bridesmaid in Beth’s wedding (see post below of pregnant Beth). 🙂 She brought Eric to Beth’s wedding as her date and even though it was early on in their relationship, she told me then to expect a call when she started planning her wedding to him. They have a true “love at first sight” story, and despite a couple hiccups setting a date due to Eric’s military career, they finally picked May 19!

The weather was beautiful, the bride wore her mother’s wedding dress, friends and family gathered and partied the night away. It was perfect.

Melissa had a reminder pop up on her phone to “Marry the love of my life”:

Melissa’s mom stitched both of their wedding dates into the hem of the dress that they both wore:

This might be my favorite capture of Ryan’s ever. Melissa doing a big exhale right before she walks down the aisle:


I usually don’t post “formals”, but I loved this informal one of Melissa and her dad:

I loved their exit with ribbon wands and little bells jingling:

I loved the display of all their families wedding pictures, and in the middle is a frame with the note that Eric passed to her the night he first saw her. It says, “Hi, I’m Eric. I figured if I didn’t write you I’d never see you again. Hope to hear from you”…then the digits! Good job Eric!

I couldn’t resist posting these two cuties pulling a “Marilyn”! 🙂

Congrats you guys! It was an honor to capture your day!

And a picture of me and my two brides. Beth is about to pop! 🙂

Happy Clients


The BEST investment I made for our wedding day was definitely booking Kylene and Ryan Studios! It was such a blessing to have you both there to capture all of the PERFECT moments of that day. You all made us feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the lens and all around were pleasant to be around.


Kylene and Ryan are the worlds best photographers! Not only did I love every picture they took but they also were great to work with. I am not the greatest when it comes to taking pictures and knowing what I might like but they knew exactly what I wanted even when I didn’t. I would highly recommend them for every event.


They were the absolute best! So friendly, so fun and professional. The photos were amazing and they took the time to get some of the more ridiculous shots I requested. BONUS: they were amazing with our nephew. He is autistic. He was our ring-bearer and was having a difficult day, which isn’t unexpected for a day like that. Could not recommend enough.


Hands down, I would recommend Kylene & Ryan to anyone in a heartbeat. We used them for our engagement photos, a boudoir shoot for me, and our wedding photography. Every single time we saw their work, we were blown away. What first drew us to them was their beautiful work–but what also hooked us was how incredibly fun, sweet, professional, and hard-working they are.


Wow, what an incredible experience! It was such a joy working with this team. They had us laughing and enjoying every minute of our special day. And the pictures are STUNNING! They really went above and beyond to create unique and memorable moments we will cherish always.
