About

Authentic. Timeless. Custom.

I love being a photographer, getting to know your story and helping to share it through your photographs, and being able to provide one of a kind, custom artwork that will make you smile, cry, and think about the most important people in your life. I love working with analog film because it makes me excited to be a photographer and drives me to photograph in a different way than digital. I use film cameras alongside state of the art digital cameras and tools to provide the best possible experience and aesthetic for any situation.

You hear a lot of talk about capturing cherished memories through photography. While a photograph freezes a moment in time, as a professional photographer I go beyond simply capturing what’s in front of me. Vision comes into play: finding the angle and perspective to transform an unforgettable moment into a work of art. It’s a great feeling when you realize that an image of yourself has become artwork, and that’s my goal for every session or wedding I photograph. You are now the subject in a piece you would be proud to display in your home. This doesn’t happen simply because I’m awesome (or because I have great cameras). It comes from connecting with you and working together to create photographs that reflect you as your best, most authentic self.

Tyler Rippel - Dover OH Wedding and Portrait Photographer - by Kirk Mastin“Your direction during the shoot and the time you took making sure the lighting was right really made me feel confident that we would have some great shots. I honestly didn’t expect to have SO many shots that I love so much!” – Jenn

Call or email me to chat about your wedding or portrait session. I’d love to talk and see what we can do together. I am based in the Dover, New Philadelphia, Ohio area and am available for travel.
