Once upon a time a pair of hobbits fell in love... then decided to start a photography business.
Ryne grew up in the mountains just outside of Asheville, North Carolina, in the small town of Brevard. There he fell in love with celebrating the small moments of life that often go unappreciated. He began his photography career as a photojournalist and quickly began photographing weddings and family portraits. His favorite things to photograph are candid moments.
Alana is excited to share their skills with her hometown of St. Louis. She went to undergrad at Missouri S&T in Rolla where she was the theater make-up artist when she wasn't on stage herself. She frequently brings these skills to shoots for staging, styling, and has been known to lend a hand at events to help things run smoothly. She has a master's degree in clinical psychology that she used while working in in-patient psychiatry and as a clinical research coordinator. While she is most often using her coordination skills as the business manager, her favorite moments in a photoshoot is uplifting clients, making them feel powerful and capturing their most authentic selves.
In their free time you can find them reading together at home with their menagerie of pets or playing Dungeons & Dragons with friends.

"Fable Photography did a wonderful photo shoot for me. I’ve never felt so good about myself. Their professionalism and kindness were a powerful combination. I was so comfortable. The lighting, the staging, the shots, the angles, the editing… absolute masterpieces. They are talented and good at what they do. If I need a photographer, they will always be my first call."

"I've used Fable Photography several times for major moment photos. They did our pregnancy announcement photos as well as our families first pumpkin patch visit. They are fun and professional. Not to mention very talented and skilled at suggesting direction/poses. I highly recommend using them for any occasion. They will go above and beyond to get a great shot for you!"
