I’m John Ryan,
the owner of J&J Studios Philadelphia.
While we shoot mainly in the Philadelphia area, we also shoot in New Jersey, Delaware, New York and we are available for travel worldwide.
We shoot mainly weddings, but have shot countless engagement sessions, corporate events and birthday parties. We have a thriving bar/bat mitzvah business.
Our specialties include wedding photography, engagement photography, portrait photography and corporate photography. We also offer cinematography services to combine photo and video offerings for our clients.
A little background about me:
I started photography all the way back in high school and spent many days taking pictures of any sports event or show that I could. I worked for the student newspaper and later during college I was Photo Editor for our college newspaper. This passion continued until late 2008 when a friend who was getting married asked me to photograph their wedding. From that moment onward I was hooked. I love wedding photography.
I get to be a product, portrait, lifestyle, glamour, boudoir, family, and documentary photographer all in the space of 10 minutes.
Things progressed exponentially from there and we now have a cinematography/videography division as well as aerial video and image service through Philadelphia Aerial Imaging.
Some fun facts about me:
- I am a licensed physical therapist.
- Ben and Jerry’s: The Tonight Dough is my favorite ice cream.
- I love Pomeranians.
- I’m married to my beautiful wife Vanessa.
- I am a certified personal trainer.
- I am a classically-trained pianist. I love Bach, Chopin, and Mozart especially. Shout out to Ms. Michelle and Ms. Paula Kubik my two former piano instructors.
- I was/am a competitive ballroom dancer. While not competing recently, I have competed all over the tri-state area.

Fees and Pricing
We don’t publicly list our prices and fees for a multitude of reasons. For example, our prices may vary depending on the day of the week or month of the year. It’s the same reason a hotel room in NYC might rent for $270 on a normal day, but $700 on New Year’s Eve. Further, we customize our packages based on our client’s needs and desires—not a one size fits all approach. For example, you might say, “I have a budget of XYZ, is there a collection we can make to those specifications.” And the answer is usually yes!
For budgeting guidance, our wedding collections start at $3800, our associate collections start at $2800 and our engagements start at $450. Must couples spend between $6000-10000 on their wedding including wedding coverage, albums, and prints.
