Perhaps the fact I have a name for each of my cameras says more about me than this page ever could. At the age of 6 I achieved my first recognition when I was awarded the prestigious Blue Peter Badge in a photography competition. It was only later in life that my very own dad confessed to taking the winning image. From that moment on I would embark in a quest to redeem my artistic integrity. I’d like to think that somewhere down the line a negative developed in my noggin & blessed me with the ability to make the world look beautiful. But the reality is my love of photography has always existed & my adoration of the still image is an extension of my passion for film. After studying a BA in film & TV production & realising I’m not the next Wes Anderson. Beginnings within fine art & travel photography turned into a hunger for photojournalism. This fast paced emotive style naturally led me to wedding & portrait photography.
I’ve been accused of turning up to weddings with a camera in every pocket. My style is relaxed, quirky, artistic & alternative. I believe in capturing those fleeting moments of emotion, expression… Love. Of course having a few laughs along the way is always a bonus. Weddings for me are about family, they’re about those brief moments of interaction in between the staged portraits of old. Of course everyone wants that posed image of their 90 year old Nan smoking a celebratory Cuban cigar like Fidel Castro. & for me it’s about adding a twist to the formal side of portraiture.
Beyond the Megapixel lies a memory framed & beyond the image lies a story. Narrative within the image is as powerful as the written word & it’s this I try to convey within my art. I specialise in storytelling for the love struck. Providing the artistic alternative to traditional wedding photography & portraiture in Saltaire, Leeds, Yorkshire & beyond. My sense of fun, style & professional commitment is a testament to years of working with happy clients.

Where to start! Cannot thank Ryan Learoyd enough for capturing the precious moments of our wedding day!. From start to finish was amazing. The pictures you captured were exactly the style i was looking for so unique and quirky many people who have seen our photo album have commented on the style of photography. Even being ill on my wedding day you were patient and let me do my thing but still managed to capture such beautiful photographs - this made my day because i really didnt think there would be smiling photographs because of how bad i felt!!.
The storybook is amazing! and i will cherish each and every moment you captured!.
Highly recommend *****
Love from the Donaghues xx
