Wow!!  What an amazing job Ron did on our special day.  That man kicks butt!  He was there from beginning to end getting photos of everything. I absolutely loved his work and he put us all at ease.  He took advantage of all the colors and settings!  I cant wait to get my photobook!  Ron is prompt, reliable, professional, creative and I would highly recommend him to anyone. I just need another event to use him for!!  Thank you So much and So much appreciation.

Kellie and Scott

Ron is a truly talented photographer!!  He came highly recommended and I am continuing the high recommendation.  He was quick to respond and stayed in touch all the way through the planning and until we received the photos.  We are thoroughly enjoying the photos and are so thankful for the many great moments he caught!   Thanks Ron!

Aaron and Cortney

Ron was such a wonderful pleasure to have at our wedding. He was so easy to communicate with during the planning process... he always responded promptly to emails.  When the big day came, he was so careful to stay in the background and take candid photos.  Ron was more than willing to do any ideas we came up with on the spot, and made perfect suggestions. He was never pushy or frustrating.  His ideas were beautiful and easy to do.  The best part was seeing over 1000 pictures he took, which were ALL beautiful and cleverly taken.  He posted them very quickly and even notified us when he did.  I would absolutely book him again for a big event and I couldn't imagine a wedding photographer being any better.  Thanks Ron!!!

Brittany and Justin

My sister and I both had Ron take our wedding pictures and we both were really impressed with his work. He is very professional and does a great job at capturing the moment. He gave us a lot of pictures to choose from and took all of the poses we asked for and them some. I highly recommend Ron to capture the highlights of your wedding.

Kim and Tony


We are thrilled that we chose Ron to do the photography for our wedding on 6/27/09!  He did a fantastic job capturing every detail of our day.  Everyone that has been to his website to look at our pictures were amazed at the unique shots he was able to catch and that he always seemed to be in the right place at the right time. Selecting a photographer is one of the most critical decisions to make when planning a wedding and we are so pleased that we chose Ron to work with! 

Craig and Stacey


As the father of the Bride, but also as a photograper myself, I can sum it up in just a few words, "Ron knows how to take pictures."  There are many people out there claiming to be photographers that just shoot snapshots.  But if you really want someone to capture the ambiance of a once in a lifetime event, you need a PROtographer like Ron.



I chose Ron to be our wedding photographer on my own when my husband was deployed. It was a big decision for a bride-to-be to make on her own. When Ron showed me a sample of his Coffee Table Books and portfolio, I knew he would be the right person to photograph our special day. He was extremely professional, prompt, and reliable. The day went by so fast, but Ron kept us on track with all of the photographs we had planned out. My husband and I were extremely pleased with the story told through our wedding photos!   I would be happy to recommend Ron Ranew to all couples looking for a great photographer who is passionate about his craft as an artist.

Ali and Ben

I want to start off by saying Ron Ranew is AMAZING! He captured every fairytale moment of our wedding! Our photos were posted three days after our wedding and we received our CD copies in five! He is on top of his game. What drew us to Ron was when we were going through some of his photos we thought he did an amazing job editing them, come to find out he does not edit them because he does not need to! He is that talented and creative! He worked with me to produced the photos that I wanted and they turned out better than we could have imagined! On top of everything else we were shocked to find out how reasonably priced he was! Ron's pictures speak for themselves and we now have a lifetime of memories. We will definitely be using Ron in the future!

Jessica and Gabe


Ron was fantastic. We were hooked just from his gallery and he definitely delivers. Mr. Ranew was early to the two shootings we had set up, his picture quality is amazing, and he was able to give us exactly what we wanted with no bull!  We didn't even really notice him during the wedding or at the reception until we got the pictures back and saw where he was. He got some amazing photos, far surpassing our already high expectations and proving to us that he is just as good, if not better, than his gallery shows he is. Mr. Ranew really captured our wedding in a way that we can remember, as a documentary of true expressions and enjoyment and not all formals and poses. Thank you for capturing our day!

Jason and Lisa


Beautiful photos!   I know I was slightly preoccupied, but I swear after the "formal" photos, I didn't even notice him taking photos at all....and he is a really tall guy.  Oh, and the pictures were gorgeous.

Heather and Ben


OUTSTANDING Photography WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK.  Ron is outstanding. He knows what he's doing and he does it well!  We ended up with approximately 2,500 images after using Ron for our wedding and there are pictures of anything and everything I could possibly want in order to remember our special day!  His prices beat out everyone else in the area.  Ron has been doing this for many years, so he is not just starting out and having to scalp you on prices.  You get the expertise and knowledge of a true professional, for a blue collar price!  He even does a discount when you pay everything up front!  He was quick with our pictures...kept in contact as necessary, was on time...actually a little our venue!  Everything you expect when hiring someone for your big day.  He is definitely someone you can trust to handle your photography on the biggest day of your life!!!  Definitely contact Ron if you're looking for outstanding quality, professionalism, and great value for your big day...and any event after that!  My husband and I will be using Ron again soon for some more pictures actually! ..and we plan to use him for all of our future photography needs as we increase the size of our family, etc.  Worth every penny!

Lauren and Josh

It was a perfect day made only more perfect by Ron's photography skills. He was a wonderful part of the day in the way he went about taking photographs at the rehearsal and all the day of the wedding.  You can almost hear the laughter and the happiness of the day in his pictures from beginning to end.

He was more than a pleasure to work with. He made everyone comfortable around him as he set about his work without distracting you from what you were up to.  Everyone is in awe of the pictures. I can hardly wait for the coffee table books!  It was the best investment we made for a wonderful outcome of our daughters wedding.

Thirty-six years ago, my husband and I had the worst of the worst photographers for our wedding.  I would say that life has made up for that by giving us one of the very best for our daughter Jessica's wedding day.

Ron you were the best! You were a pleasure to work with and I can never say thank you enough,

Gratefully yours,
Barbara and Paul


Cody and I first met Ron at his home.  When we saw all of his work we knew right away that he was a serious photographer and that we wanted him to be our photographer.  Ron's attitude was very professional and personable.  On our wedding day, Ron was exceptional.  He was capturing every single moment of our day and you could tell he was so passionate about what he was doing.  All of our pictures came out beautiful and we are so pleased to have had Ron as our photographer.

Cody and Kari


Ron was awesome and we love our photos!   He was very accommodating for our engagement photos and wedding day.   Both of our families said how nice both he and his assistant were.  He is efficient yet invisible and unobtrusive.  Ron Ranew's photography definitely makes wedding pictures one less thing to worry about.

Will and Katina

We are delighted.  Ron is a superb photographer, his photographs are beautiful, and he is just the kind of person you hope to work with on a wedding (efficient, knowledgeable and perfectly organized).  Also, his packages are incredibly good value.  We couldn't recommend him more highly.

Sarah and John


Ron was awesome, he was very enthusiastic and easy to work with. He did a great job getting shots of everything. We live in South Carolina and got married in Tallahassee as a destination wedding. This made planning things difficult. Ron was easy to work with from a distance as well.  He also recommended that we had hair and make up artists come to us the day of.  An awesome suggestion that made the day much less stressful.  His pictures are awesome to the point that I can't decide which ones to have made into prints to display because I have so many favorites.  Thanks again!

Melissa and Jon


The pictures are fantastic.  Ron really captured the excitement of the day.  We are so pleased to have met and worked with Ron.  After everything is said and done Ron's work will be a forever reminder of the begining of my daughter and son-inlaws Happily Ever After......  Thank you so much.



You have blown me away!  Your creative skill is why you were chosen for Brittney and Jace's wedding. I wanted someone that would be able to capture the essence of the day and you did just that. I look forward to working with you again with daughter number 2.



Ron was the easiest professional to work with. He was stressfree throughout the entire wedding. Worth every dime we gave him for this big wedding.

Ray and Lucy


The pictures were the most important part of my wedding and I was concerned I wouldn't find someone who met my (high) standards for something so important. Then we found Ron and absolutely fell in love with his pictures! Our wedding was in an unusual location and Ron worked with us so that he could be there. On wedding day, he was absolutely great. He got pictures of everything we could have wanted (and wouldn't have even thought of!). He really delivered and our pictures turned out AMAZING! During the day he was patient (I was running around crazy!), kind, and professional. He was unobtrusive but still managed to get perfect shots. Not only were the pictures so great, but the price is well worth it. It's also great that he provides the rights to print your own pictures. You can tell he loves what he does and we definitely recommend him to every bride and groom. We couldn't be happier! Thanks so much Ron!

Ron Ranew, Photographer

I think Ron's amazing photos on this site speak for themselves (that's how we chose him for our photographer), but he is also great to work with. He went above and beyond to make sure he captured all the photos we wanted without being intrusive. I never noticed him taking candid photos - but he took tons, and they're great! He also made sure to find out what posed photos we wanted, and suggested some great and creative ideas as well. And to make a great thing better, he has lots of pricing options - which is fantastic for a wedding on a budget! I have recommended him to multiple couples I'm friends with who've used him for their engagement and/or wedding photographer, and they've been really happy with the results too! I highly recommend Ron Ranew!

Aaron & Nicole


Ron was great! He was punctual, creative, and got everything we wanted. Most of the time, we honestly forgot he was there because he was so good at getting the shot and not suffocating us. Not one moment was missed and the pictures were amazing! He was amazing to work with. I can't wait to use Ron for all of our future photo-shoots! =)

Haylee & Lance

Ron was fantastic to work with. We set up everything in only one meeting and day-of he was excellent. We hardly noticed him taking pictures and then I ended up with 1925 pictures! So incredible. I was able to book him for 5 hours instead of a full day to better suit my budget. The very best part about Ron is that he gives you the rights to your pictures so a couple weeks after the wedding you can go pick up your pictures on a DVD. We are planning on having him edit and print out some pictures for us too. Like other reviews say, he is very professional, prompt, and very good at what he does.  I always felt like we were on the same page and that he was looking out for us.  We got back so many precious pictures and are so happy we went with Ron! 

Sarah and Nick

I cannot recommend a photographer more than I can my own, Ron Ranew.  From the beginning my husband and I loved Ron.  We liked that he genuinely LOVED photography, weddings & people (because that is important).  Immediately we booked Ron because we knew someone else would snatch him up for our day!  Ron listened to all of my wishes, and also read my wedding blog and knew all of the DIY & detail projects I'd put into the wedding! I thought that was above & beyond the regular photographer.  Ron showed up to our rehearsal to capture a few photographs-even though he wasn't paid to do so-AND he got all of our pictures to us within a week of the wedding! The day of the wedding was a whirlwind but I remember Ron showing up EARLY and falling right into place. He captured every detail and was precise in his work.  The quality of his craftsmanship is unheard of and, honestly, I wish I could get married again JUST for the experience of being photographed by Ron again. Ron is not only affordable, he has a photojournalistic/creative eye and listens to his couples!  Ron was by far one of my TOP and FAVORITE vendors!!!

Ebonee and Marvin

Ron was a great photographer!  He was very prompt in everything he did. My bridal portraits, as well as my wedding photos, turned out great!  Couldn't have asked for better service at such a great rate! 

Ryan and Vanessa


Ron Ranew is the best kept secret in Tallahassee Wedding Photography!  As I researched photographers, I was attracted to Ron initially because of his pricing - it was some of the most reasonable and affordable out there with the most quality galleries.  And for what we paid I seriously cannot believe the amazing quality and professionalism we received - completely outstanding!

All Day for Ron really means all day - he came early and took pictures of the girls getting ready, in the middle of the day he went and photographed the boys, he captured every detail of the wedding and reception, and even went with my new husband and I after the reception for a quick photo shoot by the Westcott Fountain.  Probably all-in-all a 14hr day!  And through all of that he was professional, efficient, super accommodating and just a pleasure to have at the wedding. 

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ron - we are so happy with our photos and our selection (2,888 Total!) and we love that we have complete printing freedom over the images! 

Rachel & Joseph


Ron, Ron, Ron!!!!  You are the Best!  Man, I think my wife and I are just very lucky to have found you!  My wife and I searched and searched thru tons of different photographer's before we found you!  Everytime I look at the wedding pictures it makes me smile!  You did such an awesome job, I think you should be charging more for you services!  I will offer you out as a recommendation to anybody if and only if they want a GREAT photographer to catch every moment, with class, creativity, style, and have a timeless quality!  We will be recommending you out to everybody we know!!!!  Thanks again although we can't thank you enough! 

Stephanie & Jules

Ron's photography skills are top-notch!  Very professional and courteous as well.  Remained in constant communication throughout the entire process.  Very affordable with different pricing options to choose from and the pictures turned out fantastic.  I highly recommend!!!  Thanks Ron!!! 

Ellik & Stacy


Robert and I couldn't be happier that we chose Ron to be our wedding photographer. From the time he arrived to the time we left for our honeymoon, he was there taking pictures. We love how professional and thorough Ron is, as well as his true artistic ability. He captured moments for us that we will cherish forever. We recommend him to ALL our friends for either wedding pictures or engagement pictures. Thank you again Ron!!

Mary and Robert


I cannot speak highly enough of Mr. Ranew. On the day of the wedding, the weather was awful, but Mr. Ranew not only arrived in advance, he used the circumstances as an opportunity to record some images that really captured the day's challenges.  We had a very traditional religious service, and it was important that the photographer not disrupt the reverental nature. Mr. Ranew took the time to familiarize himself with the church in advance, and during the service, was able to move about discreetly, capturing the entire ceremony while being almost invisible.

We couldn't be happier with the final product, either - our biggest challenge was determining how to whittle down the 100's of outstanding photos for our album. His experience and artistic sense really came through - we received many requests for copies and prints of his photos, and because we own them, it was easy to email the digital image to our friends and family.  In short, I can't imagine a better photographer for the most important day of my life.

Christina & Larry


Ron was absolutely top notch on our wedding day!  His all inclusive packages are great because he is with you all day to capture all of the special moments leading up to your big day and then thoughout the entire night!  It is so refreshing to work with someone like Ron because he is so passionate about what he does.  He really has an eye for photography and the quality of his work is truly incredible.  I will always look back on our wedding pictures and feel thankful for investing in such a wonderful photographer!  The value of the services Ron provides far exceed the cost.  I will gladly recommended Ron to all of my friends and family in the future.

Candice and Richard


We thoroughly enjoyed having Ron photograph our wedding!  His extreme kindness and patience, even with a demanding bride like myself, truly sold us on his professionalism.  I knew he would deliver for us and he did!  The creativity and uniqueness of his work is timeless and you're left with a priceless memory displayed in the form of a story.  We are so excited about our photo books!  It will be a cherished documentary of our beautiful day forever.   Thank you Ron for capturing every moment so exceptionally!

Nicky and Steve

When the big day has come and gone you will be left with your memories and if you are like me, your photos. I love to go back and view my wedding photos every chance I get. Ron Ranew was able to capture the happiness, love and excitement with every picture he took. When looking at my photos it brings me right back to the very moment the picture was taken. I was truly blessed to find such a wonderful photographer and would definitely recommend Ron Ranew to anyone looking for amazing quality, professionalism, and the ability to capture their special day with pure beauty.

Heather & Adrianne

We were extremely happy with our wedding photos and Ron's services!  Our pictures were beautiful.  He caught details that we never would have noticed or remembered that made our pictures unique to us and not just another wedding.  Many other photographers charge by the hour, which on your wedding day, you don't want to have worry about the bill you are racking up!  And even after all that, most photographers don't even give you the rights to print your own pictures and charge you extra for retouching.  We could not be happier! Thanks Ron! 

Alexa and Joe

I have just finished looking at my proofs online and I am so impressed! He took so many pictures of the day and he did them all without being intrusive. I look at a lot of the pictures and wonder how he got such a perfect shot of that exact moment. Ron did a fantastic job capturing our wedding day and I cannot wait to see the finished coffee table photo book that we ordered from him! Everyone who I have shown the pictures to thinks his work was absolutely fantastic! His prices are great if you are working with a budget and the best part of using him (besides his awesome work) is that you get all your proofs on a CD. 

Kelly & Kristin


Artistic, patient and fast -- that's how I would describe Ron's services. His artistry shows through-out his prints and books through imaginative, beautiful photos. He patiently listened and acted upon our requests. And he put up pictures of the wedding before the couple left on their honeymoon.  I highly recommend Ron Ranew. 



Ron is an awesome Photographer! He takes amazing pictures and really does a great job of capturing the moment. He is always available to answer any questions you have and very pleasant to work with. We were so happy with the pictures and service that we received. We highly recommend Ron's services. Thank you for capturing our memories Ron!!!

Quinton and Valerie


Not only was Ron a pleasure to work with, his photography and book turned out AMAZING!  We constantly get compliments on the book and not a day goes by where we don't take a look through it, as we are proud to have it out for anyone to see at any time.  Wedding planning can be so hectic and stressful.  However, we can guarantee that using Ron Ranew as your photographer (for any event) will prove to be a relaxing, enjoyable and an affordable experience.  We could not have asked for a better photographer to capture such special moments in our lives.  Thank YOU, Ron!

John & Beckie


I would highly recommend Ron for your wedding photograhper. His photos are beautiful. He is easy to work with and made everything seem stress-free. He has a creative eye. Ron captured all the little details at my wedding as well as the main events. My mom and I were glad to see pictures of the food, something we didn't have much time to pay attention to on the big day. Ron captured the whole wedding party in mid-air on the jump picture! The whole experience was fun and we were happy we chose Ron.

Amanda and Jake


We were thrilled with our wedding pictures!  Ron was able to capture the essence of our wedding and it was like he wasn't even there. He wasn't obtrusive and as we look through the hundreds of pictures taken we're amazed and were like "when did he take that picture" because we never saw him. 

Koulla and Jeff

We found Ron through a recommendation from a former client of his. We were so pleased with his beautiful photographs. We were not even aware that he was around most of the day, but he managed to take so many wonderful pictures.  We can't thank him enough for preserving our memories. Also, his prices cannot be beat. We checked everywhere.

Justin and Alexandra

We were so happy with our pictures!   From little details of placing the rings on the wood post with the view of the ceremony site in the background to the I do and the departure, every picture was amazing!   Our perfect day was captured in the happiness of everyone's face he photographed. Money well spent!

Mitch & Kayse

I love the photos we did for our engagement shoot.  Not only were the photos amazing but the service was incredible.  Ron has a great artistic eye.  I definitely would use Ron again for any other photo shoot!!

Holly and Teddy


The engagement pictures Ron took for us turned out great! We had one of the prints blown up and framed and the quality was excellent.  Ron is a pleasure to work with and I can't wait to for him to take our wedding pictures.

Kisha & Vinny

We used Ron Ranew for our engagement photos in February 2009. We decided on photos at Goodwood Museum and Gardens by Ron's suggestion and the photos were beautiful!  We were very pleased with all the images and the service that we received from Ron.

Tambra & Harley


First I must say that the pictures turned out wonderful. Ron was there for every moment and made sure to capture everyone at the wedding. His creativity is what really made the pictures beautiful. If you want great pictures I recommend any one to use Ron Ranew.

Mallory and Matt

I got married in October of '08.  I currently live in South Florida, but got married in Tallahassee, so I had to find a photographer and hire him from a distance.  Ron made me feel completely comfortable and assured me that everything would be perfect on my big day. On the day of the wedding, Ron was incredible!  He was there for over 8 hours, he got so many wonderful shots, and had a great time along with us! Thank you so much Ron!  Because of you, my husband and I have wonderful photo memories of our wedding day! 

Jessica & Jim


We were looking for a documentary-style photographer who captures all those small, unscripted moments you don't get with professionally posed shots.   We loved the shots from his website. His price was also very competitive and after meeting him we knew he was the one. Ron is very professional, friendly, and talented. You won't be disappointed!

Tom & Megan

Ron took a ton of pictures and was present for every step of the way!  He was one of the best choices I made for my big day!  My wedding day was the happiest day of my life but is such a blur.  I am so thankful that I have such a beautiful coffee table photo book to help me recall my special day.

Erika & Kyle


I have used Ron Ranew for numerous special events and many weddings. He is professional, always on time, wonderful to work with, great eye and does amazing work.
