We are Ryan and Breanna Nielsen! We are high school sweet hearts + a newly married duo who decided to whole heartedly pursue Living Roots to capture all the moments, tell deeply rooted stories, and meet lovely people like YOU. Breanna has been in the photography business for about 5 years now + brought Ryan in on the fun about two years ago. Ryan shoots with Breanna when he can and does majority of the background stuff that keeps the business running! You know, the important stuff! We both have a passion for life, and we try to make the most out of each day. Each couple, family, or person we take pictures of all represent a story. We believe in documenting a person’s story with simple, intimate, light hearted photos that best represent them! Most of our work that you see will be couples and weddings - since we are a young newly wed couple, we find that we connect with deeply in love people who are starting this adventure of life together. 

Besides taking pictures, we love adventures! We have ran through great sand dunes in the desert, walked through rain forests, Jeeped through the mountains of Colorado, backpacked through Europe, shot in the rain of the Alaskan hills + trailed through the streets of Taiwan. Our main adventure is living life together, and we want you to be a part of it. As you can see, we love this gift of life and we are thankful for every day so documenting your special occasions is a big deal to us. We want you to know we take that very seriously, and it's our dream to get to know each and every one of you + to provide a unique and unforgettable experience! We love to travel are SO down to travel TO you! If this is something that interests you, please contact us for more information! We can’t wait to hang out soon!
