Tampa, FL Wedding videographer + filmmaker

Ryan "Ry" Conley

 I first began capturing moments and creating films in 2016. It came about from my favorite hobby: hiking with my son. He was a lot lighter back then, so we'd explore and adventure around Florida State Parks with him on my back and my camera in my hand to document. After a year or so I upgraded my gear and started sharing our journeys on Instagram, and eventually YouTube, under #TheHikerDad.

   My weekly creations evolved to be more fine-tuned after every expedition. A friend of mine asked if I'd like to film their intimate wedding. From that day on I had found what I loved to do: capture others special moments so that they can relive them again and again in an exciting, unforgettable way.

   My love for creating video is still growing with more weddings and more adventures. But now with my son hiking on his own two feet, and my daughter hitching a ride on my back. 

   I am beyond happily married to my amazing wife of 6 years now. My only regret of our wedding is that I didn't see the point in hiring a videographer if we were all ready having a photographer. I still love to look back at the beautiful images they gave us but what I've come to learn is that nothing compares with being able to watch that day again. To be able to listen to your spouse's vow to you, to see the tears of joy in their eyes, and to dance your first dance over and over again with them. To witness loved ones celebrate with you that may not be here today, and to have the opportunity to feel the immeasurable amount of love that began at the cusp of your journey together as a couple.

   I promise to pour my heart and soul into your Wedding Highlight Film as if it were my own. Everyone deserves a glimpse back upon the beginning of their love story.
