Today we are rolling out our second ever Digital Collections with some brand new additions. As some may know we have re-branded our Wedding Business and are now calling it Ryan Gonzales Photography for that more personal touch to our Weddings. We strive to create a more personal experience with all of our brides and grooms instead of a completely business experience. Ryan will get out on the dance floor and dance with you, he will help you get organized throughout the process, he will even run to Starbucks to grab you a coffee or drink. Weddings are where we continue to separate ourselves from the rest of the photographers in the Las Cruces, El Paso and even Albuquerque markets. Our imagery alone sets us apart but now so do our pricing for Digital Delivery Only Collections.
Gonzales Photography has been in business since 2007 and in 2014 we fully incorporated which allowed us to create two new business. One of those business is Ryan Gonzales Photography where we create relationships with our clients and help them every step of the way up until the Big Day (Wedding Day).

We will start off by discussing why it was important to separate the 3 brands! First of all after talking to my mentors and close friend about why having one brand encompassing all 5 genres was not only confusing for potential customers but also turning people away from looking around the website. If anyone knows how important website traffic is then you can definitely understand how this was hurting business. In a nutshell High School Seniors do not want to look at Weddings and Weddings do not want to look at High School Seniors. This will begin with a brand new website in the coming months! Ryan Gonzales Photography dot com has already been purchased and is awaiting activation.
Ryan Gonzales Photography will continue on where Gonzales Photography left off with catering to Weddings, Engagements, Quinceaneras and Sweet 16's. We will photograph these events exclusively and will be displayed on the Ryan Gonzales Photography website. There will be galleries for each genre on the site and will also contain specific videos and a questionnaire to make sure we are a potential fit for a specific client. The questionnaire currently is located here Wedding Quiz, please take our quiz and see if we are a fit for your wedding photographic needs.
Gonzales Photography will continue to serve our High School Seniors and our Family Portrait clients but will have a completely new website. This new site will contain galleries for all of our High School Seniors and our Family Portrait Sessions along with a quiz for Seniors and Families. These quizzes are completely up to the client whether they would like to take them or not. We at Gonzales Photography don't like to use pushy sales tactics because we want our clients to be 100% comfortable in their decision. Try to remember that being a High School Senior is one extremely important milestone that your child has achieved and you only want the best for your child, right? Hire a true professional photographer who has years of experience, knowledge and is continually keeping up with their education by attending workshops, conventions and seminars. Ryan Gonzales is a fully Certified Professional Photographer who also educates other photographers from around the country through mentoring or conducting workshops. This leads to our Third and final brand!
Ryan Gonzales Photography Workshops and Mentoring was born to bring only his 12 years of experience, knowledge and education to photographers from all over the country. Ryan conducts workshops for all levels of photographers from the barely beginning photographer up to the more experienced professional. He does all of this as his way of giving back to the community and his many mentors throughout the years. Through mentoring and going to workshops you will develop a strong understanding of the true art of photography by learning the exposure triangle, the inverse square law and how it applies to light, lighting patterns to flatter your clients facial type and structure, posing to flatter every client that steps foot in front of your camera and much, much more. Ryan has been featured in Shutter Magazine and is an award winning photographer. He brings his 10 years of business education and marketing to his workshops to teach photographers how to make more money and bring quality to their clients. Check out this page to find out more!
At Gonzales Photography, Ryan Gonzales Photography and Ryan Gonzales Photography Workshops and Mentoring we make sure that we provide our clients with value, an out of this world unique experience and education that helps photographers of all levels to take their business to that next higher level. We care about all of our clients and strive to give them 100+% at every event, workshop or mentoring session. Ryan also gives back to the local community by helping high school and middle school students to gain knowledge in photography for when they are ready to start their own business. He goes over the pros and the cons so that each student has a very good platform to form an educated decision.
Did I mention that Ryan is a fully Certified Professional Photographer? What does that exactly mean, well this is what it means!
1.) Consistency: Certified Professional Photographers know how to achieve great results every time.
2.) Technical Skills: Certified Professional Photographers are more than just picture takers. They are students of art, lighting, posing, fashion and even interior design.
3.) Unique Artistry. Certified Professional Photographers have the skills to create unique, customized works of art not cookie-cutter pictures. They follow an artistic vision. It's your story captured as a collection of art.
4.) Professionalism. When you hire a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP), you know you're getting someone who is willing to go the extra mile to deliver the best possible images.

A professional will be committed to YOU and YOUR wedding day. They are GUARANTEED to show up on that day, no questions asked! I've seen "friends" commit to photographing a wedding and then flake out 2 months or even a few weeks before the wedding. People don't show up to help on the day-of when they said they would and even people just not caring at all. When you hire a paid PROFESSIONAL, they are contractually obligated to carry out the duties that you hired them to perform.
There's nothing worse than having everyone standing around at your wedding not knowing what to do next. Hiring someone who has experience will most definitely help your stress level both before and during the wedding. A PROFESSIONAL with experience will also have a specific way of doing things, so there won't be to much guesswork for you while planning YOUR wedding. The last thing you want to have to do while planning your wedding is figure out what your friend is supposed to be doing.
In other words, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! Hiring a professional will ensure that you get a great result. Whether it's photos or flowers, or food or coordinating, having someone who does weddings for a living will certainly give you the best outcome. It may not always be the most ideal option to spend money on a PROFESSIONAL, but really and truly paying for a service makes SUCH a huge difference! Not to mention that yes, there is a contract involved and as I stated before they are OBLIGATED to provide you with those awesome results.
When working with a professional, if anything, you will build a relationship with them. Almost always when hiring a friend the RELATIONSHIP gets strained in some way. Either they hold a grudge against you for making them work for free or less than normal or you're not happy with thier results and you just can't tell them. It's not worth ruining a RELATIONSHIP with one of your friends!
If they truly are your friend, you'll want to have them at your wedding and enjoy it, right? If that's not the case then you don't really want to even have them at your wedding. Don't get me wrong, there can be friends that help out with your wedding who will do a great job. In my PROFESSIONAL experience it doesn't always work out for the best. One of the things that I've discovered about weddings is that it's pretty common for "friends" who "do weddings" to popup when you get engaged. What a coincidence that you have a friend who photographs weddings, coordinates and is a DJ, right? At the time it seems lucky and like you have all your bases covered but please do your best to make an informed decision when friends offer to help with your wedding that CANNOT BE REDONE!
As we all know the holidays always include those few that decided to pop the question to their girlfriend or boyfriend. Most couples are engaged over the holidays whether that be Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or even New Years. So in order to help these couples we at Gonzales Photography want to offer a contest to celebrate the love that a man and a woman, man and man or woman and woman share for one another. Fill out our contest form here Engagement Contest Entry Form and be entered to win an engagement session valued at $199 and receive a $100 print credit towards one of three engagement collections. I want to wish everyone good luck and if you have any questions or want to book your entire wedding event click here so that you can see if we still have your date available.
