My name is Ryan Hunt and I am a photographer/videographer based in Roanoke, VA. I specialize in portrait (all kinds: family, senior, maternity, engagement, headshot), sports, concert, corporate, and wedding photography. I am also an FAA Part 107 licensed drone pilot and a freelancer for ESPN, Getty Images, and USA Today Sports/Imagn.


I use my unique style and perspective to create photos that grab attention and capture the individuality of my subject. I am passionate about my work, and client satisfaction and professionalism are of the utmost importance to me. As a freelancer for various publications, I am experienced in delivering quality content with a quick turnaround.


I also produce and compose music, and produced "500 Degrees" for hip-hop artist Tyga and Grammy Award-winning rapper Lil Wayne in 2013, which has been certified Gold (selling over 500,000 copies) by the RIAA. I am a member of ASCAP: American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers.


Please contact me at if you have any questions or are interested in booking a session. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Having Ryan Hunt as our photographer on our wedding day was by far the best decision that we could have made. As soon as we met Ryan, we knew he was the man for the job. He was kind, polite, professional, and put us both completely at ease knowing that we could trust him to do a great job.


Ryan also gave us something that we will never be able to thank him enough for. My husband and I have a dog named Georgia. She is 13 and was unable to make it to the ceremony. Ryan was more than willing to follow us home after the wedding ceremony to take photos of the three of us together on our special day. The pictures that we took with Georgia are my favorite and we will treasure them for the rest of our lives.


I truly cannot say enough good things about Ryan Hunt. He takes pride in his profession and it shows.


Doug Doughty, Roanoke Times

"As a sportswriter with the Roanoke Times, I have had increasing opportunities to witness Ryan Hunt's development as a young photographer. I think what struck me in his early years was his pleasant nature and his increasing skills, photographic and video. More recently, he's followed me on assignments to cover Atlantic Coast Conference basketball and several area golf tournaments.

If I might share a story, I recently needed to have a photo taken early one morning at a locked gymnasium. He was able to locate the building manager, arrange to have the doors unlocked and then took the photos and submitted them.

I can't think of anything I wouldn't ask him to do."


Meg Griffith, Our Lady of Nazareth Church

“Ryan is creative, responsive, easy to work with and has a quick turnaround- truly a joy to work with. I had ideas about what I wanted our videos to look like but no idea how to make it- he took our ideas, collaborated, and then made it all come together better than I could have is rare to find both his technical and artistic skills. Highly recommend.”


Frances Bosch McCutcheon

“Our thanks to Ryan Hunt of Ryan Hunt Photography for his beautiful work in capturing special moments of our wedding. Ryan made two camera-shy people look and feel beautiful.


Before your photos, there was only one photograph of me that I liked...I was four.  ONE image in nearly fifty years of living with photographers.  The photograph you took of me before the ceremony is now my favorite picture of me.  


When photographs matter, trust Ryan.”
