Internship/Apprenticeship Position Available

Thank you to Amy and Carrie for doing an amazing job for us in 2008. We are now in the process of taking applications for 2 internship/apprenticeship positions for spring/summer 2009. If you are in college, you may use your hours towards your fieldwork/internship program (upon your school’s approval). If interested, please contact us with the requested information after reading all of the details below

Your photography skills should be at least at an intermediate level, but even more essential is your ability to learn by observation. The schedule per intern will average 2 sessions per week, and 1 to 2 weddings per month. Outdoor sessions typically take place on weekdays from 3:30-5:30pm (currently) and 5:30-7:30pm (summer). Weddings times vary, are usually on Saturdays, and average 8 hours. We are willing to work with your schedule, but you must have high availability during the above stated times, as projects often come up on a last minute basis and shooting hours can be inconsistent. Official internship will last from late February through Labor Day, but upon approval you may remain longer if you would like. There is a possibility that after the internship is completed, Ryan will use you on a paid basis to second shoot. The internship, however, is an unpaid position. Aside from the benefits of learning through observation, in exchange for your time Ryan will be available to answer questions you have, and will also be happy to critique your work and provide general advice and guidance. Upon request he is happy to also share his methods of image processing/editing,  and the like. Erica is happy to answer any questions pertaining to how the business side of things are handled (pricing structure, client database, invoicing, etc.). Like most things in life, you will get out of it in proportion to what you put into it. You will be encouraged to shoot on your own as much as possible, and apply what you have learned. Other aspects of this position, or what more you might want out of it, remain open for you to define with Ryan.

If you are interested in the photography internship, please email Ryan directly at Please include a phone number, and attach 3 samples of your work. You must be able to meet with Ryan in person to be considered. Please include information about your experience in photography and confirm that you have read through the schedule requirements.

Thank you and looking forward to another great year!

baby micah!!

Here is another one of the babies born at Sacred Heart that we shot. Micah was born  Dec. 20, she came into the studio with her mom, dad and grandparents on the 26th. Micah has such a helpful big sister, she absolutely adores her baby sister. Congratulations to the Wells family on the new addition!

a happy 7 month old Baby Brennan…

And happy he was. Brennans aunt Cristalle lined up this shoot for Brennans moms Christmas present. Brennan was so fun to shoot, it never gets old shooting babies. They all have their own personalities and it is fun to see all of them. Thank you Cristalle for bringing Brennan in, again he was great!

Paxton Robert Manthey is here!!!!

So he is finally here! Paxton Robert was born Dec. 8 and was 7lb 7oz and 21 in. We are now a family of five, before you know it we’ll have six, okay maybe not. Joslyn is in love with her new brother, she has been very motherly to him. Gavin has no idea what’s going on, he is 15 months, but I think the two will be buddies. Erica’s doing good, tired but good. Sacred Heart was a great hospital. They have such great nurses, and for a hospital the food was not too bad.

Graeme & Christen are engaged.

Graeme & Christen are friends of ours, we all go to the same church ( Shoreline , the best church ever! ). Christen works with B-Boy Productions and Graeme is the youth leader at Shoreline, well actually they both lead youth. Graeme has the best personality, he is very funny and has a great personality… and he’s like 8 feet tall. We are looking forward to Christen’s bridal shoot, it should be tons of fun. For our shoot we went to Baytowne Wharf


Leanne strikes a pose.

Here are some photos we took of our friend Leanne, who lives in Atlanta. It was great to see ya Leanne, maybe the next time we shoot you it will be for your wedding! Whatcha think?


First comes love then comes marriage.

So Chris Lawson is married, wow. I have known Chris for quite a while and to see Chris married is great. I a glad he found a woman like Joni, she is a great person. These two truly were meant for each other. I love the story of how they first met, I would tell you guys but I type really slow. They had a beautiful wedding in Rosemary Beach, everything was perfect. Tammy from The Eventful Planner did such an awesome job. Good luck in your marriage, we love you guys.

Anthony & Brooke are MARRIED!! GO VOLS!

This was another wedding we shot that Tammy from The Eventful Planner put together, once again it was beautiful. The wedding was on the beach and the reception was at a huge beach house that I swear slept 100, well okay maybe 20-30. Anthony and Brooke are such chill people, which made it so easy to shoot their wedding. It was such a fun and relaxed wedding. We thank you Anthony and Brooke. Lets hope UT can find themselves a coach, GO VOLS!!
