Brittney & Matthew | 9.5.20 Dothan, AL Wedding Photography

Man….where to start with this one? Brittney and Matthew came to us kind of late in the game, and with good reason.  They had been planning their wedding for almost a year, but then when her dad needed heart surgery, they moved up their date by a few months and also moved it to his backyard in Dothan, AL.  Brittney and Matthew live in Virginia, but we shared a few emails, phone calls, and within two weeks we were ready to meet them.

In light of the crazy year that is 2020 and Brittney’s dad’s health concerns, they told us their entire wedding would be masked.  It was definitely a different experience to be behind the lens and a mask, but we quickly got used to it.  I smiled a LOT more behind that mask so her bridal party knew I was happy to be there!  I’m so glad they were able to safely get married, knowing their dad could rest easy and recover from surgery soon.  We’ll be rooting for you Mr. Rutledge!

This day had so many lovely surprises including a secret dress-change from Brittney and a jaunt down the aisle from both of them….but the biggest surprise was from Matthew in the form of an amazing guest to sing their first dance song!  We got to witness the beauty that is MAJOR. and hear him serenade them with “Stand By Me”, and then his original song “Why I Love You”. It was absolutely amazing….you wish you were there.  😉

They had some lovely vendors who helped pull everything together for the new date, and we loved working a little bit outside of town and meeting new people!

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.
