before their wedding in avallon

I love photographing couples just before the wedding day- whether it’s the rehearsal dinner or an engagement session the day before the wedding… just before they become husband and wife. So special and so full of anticipation!

Loved this time with Natasha and Manu before they wed in Avallon, France.


Laura - Beautiful!! Love that last frame, so romantic :)

Linnea - Rylee, these are gorgeous! Love how you incorporated staircases & doors into this pre-wedding photo shoot as symbols of the journey ahead and the steps they will travel together in married life. Love your work!

Natasha Hurley - Oh Rylee, I absolutely loved this moment. The quietness of wandering through the French fields as the sun set with you and Andrew. And to have it captured so beautifully is just perfect. Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job – so happy to have this evening and the emotions and joy that we were feeling on film. Much love from Manu and me – from a rather cold London! x

Erin Lockhart - Rylee!! This is so breathtaking… xo

Amy - Amazing Rylee as usual. Is that Lily of the Valley? : ) So pretty!

Anna Kidman - Beautiful rylee, I love the light, even the colour images have a soft monochromatic feel to them. I always find there is this resounding sense of peacefulness in your work.

Linnea - Absolutely regal! Love all of the b&w film you shot. I just started using Ilford 3200 to experiment with and I’m hooked.

Jade Sheldon-Burnsed - What a magical dream…

Emilia Jane - Unbelievably stunning. The kiss and this last image just absolutely stop me in my tracks.

joey - so impressed with this wedding! Your growing so fast, its really exciting to wittness! Congrats!!!!

Lesley and Tim are gems. Both of them, along with their amazing families, are some of the kindest, most genuine people I’ve ever met & I’m so grateful I was able to witness and document their wedding day. I hope you enjoy the photos from their wedding day in Tuscany!

Amy - Stunning. I mean really, really incredibly beautiful.

sarah kate branine - Rylee,
I can’t get over the beautifulness in your photographs. Also, I noticed Amy Osaba’s name on the list. She did several arrangements for my sister’s book, that released today from Amazon, by the way! (My sister is Barb Blair and her book is Furniture Makeovers– beautiful! — I’m biased of course, but I think her book is beautiful! : )

gaby j - so unbelievably gorgeous!

Esther - Too beautiful for words… so much talent among this group of creatives!

hilary lamb - your work is simply magical, love each and every photo

Renee Jones - Amazing photos!

diana elizabeth - new fan here, just saw you on, amazing work, keep it up! Really breathtaking.

Tenielle - I’ve seen your beautiful images floating around the web Rylee, but the for the first time I’ve stopped by and whilst I’m here I wanted to tell you how beautiful your work is. You also seem like you have a heart of gold. Congrats on your success, both in your career and in your life. Warmest T xo
