Blue Hill at Stone Barns Wedding: Jingjing and Yixi

Blue Hill at Stone Barns is one of my favorite venues anywhere in the world, much less in the NYC area. When clients even mention it I start thinking about the beauty of the Rockefeller farm, and the food … oh man, the food. Jingjing and Yixi had the same thought — they wanted to have an intimate wedding for themselves and about 30 of their close friends and family, and what better way to share that experience than over a fantastic meal?

They are warm, caring and kind — the sort of people who, when doing a picture of all their Columbia friends said, “Hey, Ryan went to Columbia! Get in here!” They take the people around them and make them friends. That is a relationship I am thrilled to document. The gorgeous venue just doesn’t hurt.

    Stunning photos, as always!

  • David Stubbs

    This is so inspiring Ryan, I was looking forward to a weekend off from weddings but now I just want to shoot tomorrow! Fantastic work – David Stubbs

    as a relative newcomer to weddings (i have around 40-50 over 3 years) it’s a great rush to see photos similar ( ) to mine taken by a photographer whose level i aspire to reach. If i could get to NY i’d gladly pay to assist a shoot if only to learn a fraction of the knowledge Ryan has.

    I’m looking forward to the next post as each has been better than the last.

    thank you

    Great photos! Also loving the wine glass shot.. photo must be inverted as there’s an iPhone defying gravity too (is there an app for that?).

  • Bastian

    I love the picture with the glass. For the rest it is another example of your great work!

    I don’t know how you have the vision to capture photos like this, but it’s just amazing. Keep up the awesome work!

  • Valentin Leung

    Intimate and personal, I really like it.

  • Martin Hambleton

    For me it’s the shot of the bouquet toss and the guests’ expressions. Just a great capture of a moment. But that’s just one standout in yet another strong set of wedding images.
