We have a particular Offbeat Bride-approved photography team who has managed to win the hearts of tons of our readers already by globe-trotting around capturing amazing and authentic offbeat weddings all over. They’re the husband and wife team at Gemini and the Bear who love love maybe even more than we do!
Here’s a little about them, why they’ll illustrate your love story like it absolutely should be told, and why you’ll get a discount just for being a part of our community…
Let’s introduce them!
Jenevieve and Ryan are technically based in Atlanta, but not only do they LOVE traveling for weddings, they don’t even charge for travel. So if you think their work is to-die-for (and we agree), and you don’t live near Atlanta, fear not. They can totally come to you! They actually travel around in an adorable little camper to shoot weddings all over and it’s just the best.
With over a decade of experience in wedding logistics and award-winning photography, this team has earned their pro status over and over.
What makes Gemini and the Bear tick?
You’ll find them capturing indoor and outdoor weddings in all sorts of conditions and lighting. You’ll find them using their extensive background in concert photography (which makes them experts at that awesome photojournalistic style we love!), and event production to produce the most complete story of your whole day.
They also take the time to really get to know YOU. They’ll meet up with you to learn all about your wedding and what makes you unique. Then they’ll create a custom shot list that matches your dream photo package, and then rock the day with a bridal survival kit and supportive words to make everything run like clockwork. They’re masters at all aspects of weddings themselves which makes for super savvy photo capturing. Seriously, it helps. For some proof, check out their blog for both featured weddings AND a whole bunch of helpful info for wedding planning.
OH! And this is one of those things I personally loved: in addition to stellar wedding photography, they also offer videography and photo booths! Cross off three whole to-dos on your list with just one vendor. Huge, huge score.
What do their clients say?
Considering Ryan and Jenevieve work extra hard to get to know their clients, they end up being friends with most of them. So it’s no wonder they leave such a great impression. Here are a few of our favorite words of praise about them and their work…
“I can’t tell you how much we love our wedding photos! Our event was not the typical, our venue is VERY low light and we did not want ‘precious’ photos. I mean we hired a circus, we wanted photos of a party, full of color and light and laughter, and we got just that! Ryan and Jenevieve met with us beforehand and over pizza we discussed how Ryan had a very special camera that could handle low light mixed with lots of movement, and how 10 circus performers, an engagement and wedding would need to be captured within a space of one hour. These two pulled it off perfectly! I feel so lucky that Nicolette, our coordinator at Paris on Ponce, knew about them! If you want professional people and photos that don’t look like every other damn wedding these are your photographers.” -Monica
“I loved the pictures on their website and after meeting them in person I was struck by how creative and professional they were. On the day of our wedding, they were so incredibly flexible and worked with us to create the editorial and fun style we were looking for–including a spur of the moment series of images with light sabers! They have such a great eye for not only the best shot, but how to utilize the space and other items to bring it to life. I cannot recommend them enough!” -Steven
“Ryan is a true artist–his ideas and eye is off the charts. Jenevieve may in fact be an angel in disguise, her patience is profound. Both are very kind, excellent listeners, and work together like peanut butter and jelly. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for truly unique photography, but especially to high-strung brides. Ryan & Jenevieve are the most relaxed duo I have had the pleasure of working with.” – Betsy
