Who is Ryan Hender as a Person?

Shortly after marrying my best friend in 2007, we found out we couldn’t have children of our own. As a child, I spent time in Foster Care, so I knew how hard it was to be in the system.  Rather than going the traditional adoption route, we decided to foster children so we could change more than just one life. Jackson came to live with us when he was 7 months old, and just months later we were asked to adopt him permanently, along with his twin brothers that had yet to be born. We went from a family of 2 to a family of 5 in just 4 short months.  It changed everything. 

I had no choice but to quit my job to stay home with our boys, and that allowed me to finally chase my dream of being an artist. I had always wanted to make a difference telling stories, but I never thought I would be doing what I do today. I first fell in love with fine art photography when I was just 15.  I spent most of my life making videos purely as a hobby, with just over 2Million views on my YouTube channel. As of 2009 I have been a full-time freelance filmmaker and have enjoyed every second of it.

Real Estate Photography and Videography

People like video, and the statistics back it up. While the average web user spends 48 seconds on a listing, the same user spends close to 6 minutes (5 minutes 50 seconds) on a listing that has video. It’s simple, really. If your real estate listings include video, your visitors are likely to stay longer, and the longer a user stays on your page/listing, the more likely they are to translate into a lead. Video is said to be a whopping 53 times more effective at drawing people in than text alone.Since 2009, video traffic from mobile devices has increased 5000%. Every day, YouTube receives 4 BILLION video views, and as of 90% of web traffic is video. Websites that include relevant, optimized video are 57% more likely to be on page one of Google than those that do not.Utilizing video allows real estate agents and brokers to market each property to its fullest, instilling a sense of trust and competency with both selves and buyers. Video today is a critically important piece of the puzzle. Video gives potential home buyers a much richer online experience than photos alone. The movement created by video brings the listing to life, giving viewers a feeling of walking through the home themselves. Not to mention, the ability for buyers to share the video on social media with friends and family, putting YOUR name in front of more potential buyers, and sellers. Adding video sells more real estate by inviting more interest, more attraction, and of course more leads! Are you ready?Call TODAY! 801-349-6546

Real Estate Photography

When you list your home, you’ve got to make it stand out! iPhone pictures don’t work anymore. If you want your listing to be the one everyone is talking about, aerial photography is a MUST! It gives a unique perspective of your home and surrounding areas to give your buyers a feeling of being there without having to drive across town.

Real Estate Videography

In addition to the aerial photography, I also do video work. I have a few different options for this, and the pricing varies from package to package. I do specialize in video, and feel very strongly that a good video plays an essential role to give prospective buyers a unique understanding of your home before they ever walk in the door. This turns more lookers into buyers. You’ll do far less showings, and the showings you do, are far more interested in the home. Less wasted time, faster sale! Whether you’re looking for a simple video slideshow (which most agents use) or a more professional look with professional video camera, professional voice over from a professional voice actor to set your listing apart, or maybe you want to be the face of your listing(s), I can do it all!

Aerial Photo + Video

Providing an aerial view of the home itself as well as surroundings is an amazing way to connect with your buyers. This is your chance to show off that valley, sunset, or other million dollar view that sold you on your home to begin with!

Funeral Photography

As the #1 Funeral Photographer in Utah, I take pride in offering a service that most people never even consider. Sadly, in our short existence on this earth there is nothing more important than family. Funerals and weddings are the two days in one’s life where everyone most important to them come together to celebrate their accomplishments. As these fleeting moments pass us by, it’s important to capture these occasions so we can look back and remember those who came to support us in our time of need. 

Funerals are often unexpected, so we are allowed minimal time to plan the details. With our photography and video service for memorial services we have simplified the process so you can treasure the final moments while your head was spinning out of control. This allows you to grief without having to remember each and every moment, as we will capture those special moments for you.

FAQ

Pricing

Planning your wedding budget is hard enough without having to hunt down pricing and endless emails to find out how much your favorite videographer/photographer is. We have listed all our pricing to make planning your day as easy as possible.

There will be additional charges for destination, or Out of State weddings. Travel pricing varies on a case by case basis.

For example Flight, Hotel & other travel expenses.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us for any travel quotes.

DO YOU DO BOTH PHOTO AND VIDEO?

Absolutely! We’ve developed some pretty awesome packages that give you the best of both worlds.

Our clients LOVE the fact that they have two professionals working every angle of the wedding day.

Having two professionals is an incredible asset to wedding day coverage, we are able to cover the Bride and Groom getting ready, multiple angles of the ceremony and reception!

One of the many highlights to hiring Ryan Hender Films is you get two full time professionals on your wedding day!

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED & DO YOU TRAVEL?

We are based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

All our pricing includes free travel up to 25 miles outside of Salt Lake City.

Travel is billed very simply. If Airfare, Hotel & Rental Car are needed all you are responsible for is a direct reimbursement for the charges.

DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE A SHOT LIST?

Other than family groupings, we would prefer you didn’t. Let us explain why.

It is very helpful to know who your important family and friends are on the wedding day.

Working from a checklist is counter productive from the work you see on our website, shot lists are a great idea in theory, but we generally capture those images without prompting.

Providing us with a long list of shots will reduce the amount of wedding day documentation we are able to achieve. Therefor making your gallery much different than what you have seen.

LOCATIONS AND PERMITS

There are many places that require you to get a permit or pay a fee for photography.

If you have any questions about locations or photography fees let us know and we can help you find the answers.

WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

We use multiple professional Canon & Nikon full frame cameras and lenses.

Make sure your photographer has multiple professional camera bodies during your big day. This is an oversight often missed by most brides but could spell disaster for them. Cameras do and will fail at some point no matter how new or expensive they are. Professional lenses are equally important, they help render the highest quality imagery under any conditions.

Rain, Snow or Shine our equipment is weather sealed and ready for anything.

The last thing you want is a photographer who is afraid of the elements.

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Yes! Absolutely Yes!

Professional wedding photographers should have the proper insurance for their business. Insurance protects the photographer against equipment theft, but more importantly it provides liability protection in case Great Uncle Phil trips over the photographer’s bag and breaks his leg. When wedding photographers do not have insurance, chances are they are new to the industry or are not taking their business seriously.

DO YOU EDIT MY PHOTOGRAPHS?

Yes we do!

All your images are culled and those that make the final cut all receive our special touch.

We often select a few favorites for special attention above and beyond the individual image editing.

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH THE REHEARSAL?

You may add rehearsal coverage to your package at an additional cost if you wish. The Rehearsal Dinner is most often suggested to be covered by the Videographer, and adds an incredible amount of sentimental value in the finished product. Many of our wedding videos include footage from a rehearsal dinner.

WHAT IS AN ONLINE GALLERY?

The online gallery is a section on our website where all of your wedding photographs will be placed online for you and your family and friends to view at any time.

It is also a secure shopping cart for you and family to order prints, cards or albums from and have them delivered right to your door.

HOW LONG UNTIL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOGRAPHS?

HOW LONG UNTIL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOGRAPHS?

Edited photos are typically delivered 60-90 days after a wedding. Video, being far more labor intensive can take as long as 6 months. These times are just estimates. It may be possible for a delayed delivery depending on overall workload, and what time of year your event is held.

In order to keep our delivery time as short as possible, we do limit the number of events we take each year.  

HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS WILL I RECEIVE?

The number of photographs taken depends on many things.

Types of events, hours of coverage, number of guests, locations… The average is 500 images for an eight hour day. Those numbers may vary depending on the day itself.

DO WE RECEIVE RAW FILES OR UNEDITED IMAGES?

The Raw, unedited images are not available for purchase or viewing.

The images selected for final delivery reflect our very high standards and cut images are not archived.

CAN YOU HOLD A DATE FOR ME?

To be fair to everyone we do not hold dates until a deposit is made and a contract is signed.

All bookings are on a first come first serve basis.

WHAT IS YOUR PAYMENT SCHEDULE?

A non-refundable deposit of 50% of your total balance is due to reserve your day.

The remaining balance is due one week before the wedding day. The retainer fee and all money collected is non-refunable. The retainer guarantees the reservation of your date and after the contract is signed we turn down all other commissions for that day.

WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?

As soon as possible! We don’t hold dates unless we have a signed contract and deposit is paid.

We often book weddings as far as two years in advance. If you want US, the sooner the better!
