Ryan Davis Photography

Ryan Davis Photography


I'm a dad who spends most my free time adventuring with my clones - a 9 -year-old son and 1- year old daughter. (Just see my personal Instagram for proof). I'm a dog lover and can be easily swayed by good coffee or pizza of pretty much any quality. I'm easy-going, down-to-earth and I feel that life is far too important to be taken too seriously. People tend to let their guard down when they're around me, and that makes it easy for me to showcase your authentic spirit in my photographs instead of making your personality disappear behind a "insert-new-person-in-this-uncomfortable pose-each-week" philosophy.

I specialize in photographing real people who aren't afraid to be themselves - regardless of age, race, sexual preference, religion, or body type. I'd love to hear more about you so to say hello, fill out my contact form, email me at ryan@ryandavisphotography.com or give me a call at 815.988.1593. Home is the Rockford, IL area but I am available for travel worldwide.

What couples are saying

“My husband and I could not be happier with our wedding photos!! Before we met Ryan, my fiancé and I had met with a photographer who was trying to convince me to not get ready at my parents' home where I grew up because it would be "aesthetically unpleasing." When we met with Ryan, who actually drove to Madison to see us and was recovering from some bad stomach bug (what a champ! still can't believe he didn't cancel!), he was more than happy to photograph our day, wherever it may be. And that he did with absolute perfection! Thanks to Ryan, I'll always remember the details of my parents home just as it was that day, in addition to all the emotions we felt, including those of our closest friends and family. Not to mention the quick turn around time - 8 days later and we had our photos! Ryan, and his assistant Jose, told our story beautifully through photos and now we can always relive our special day. Thank you! ”

“My husband, Scott, and I are so glad that a friend referred Ryan Davis Photography to us as we were planning our wedding! We had terrible weather (rain that turned into sleet) and didn’t want to have our families outside for pictures; they came up with numerous great indoor locations for photos of us, our wedding party and family. Ryan and Mike were organized, relaxed and made taking pictures truly enjoyable. Ryan also took advantage of the weather and made the rain an asset. Scott and I ventured outside a couple of times and end up with some truly breathtaking shots that we will treasure for years to come. He did a wonderful job taking photos of us and our guests that are beautiful, don’t feel posed, and capture the emotions of the day. Many thanks! We would highly recommend him!”

“Coming from out of state, I was not able to meet Ryan until the day of our wedding. We communicated via email and also had a phone call. Well after meeting him, I could tell right off the bat, he would be so easy to work with. And once I saw our photos, I could not be more pleased with him! Ryan absolutely blew us away! We could tell right off the bat that he was a consummate professional - he was on time, he suggested photos I had not thought of, he gave my husband and I direction, he was fine with taking shots at a different location nearby on the day of that we had not previously discussed and you actually forget he is there! I could not be more happy with our photos- they are absolutely stunning and I love not just the photos we posed for, but also all the great surprise shots of the day I did not expect! He captured the big and the little moments that truly tell the entire day. He even left us with a few mini polaroids as a sample before the night was over. He has a quick turnaround with getting your photos back to you - we received ours 8 days later! And he also surprised us with a photo slideshow of the day! He is A+++ so if you are looking for a great photographer - look no further, he is the best!”
