“This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
Hello! My name is Marina Ryan and I am a natural light photographer located on the Island of Oahu! I was born in Russia and moved to the US with my family in 1989. I have lived in Rhode Island, North Carolina, Hawaii, Washington. And now back in Hawaii again with my husband, Matthew, and our son, Samuel. I can still speak, read, and write in Russian….but you won’t notice an accent when I speak.
I started photography as a hobby in 2011 and finally opened up my business in April 2013. I'm mostly self-taught through trial & error, books, and of course – Google/Youtube. In May 2014, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a Rachel Vanoven newborn workshop which has fueled my passion for newborn photography even more. There is still so much I want to learn!
I am very passionate about what I do. Photography gives me a high, a huge adrenaline rush when I shoot. My goal is to always capture the moment and make a memory that will be cherished for the rest of your life. My style of photography is simple, clean, and classic and I wouldn't want it any other way!
