Ryan Wiedmaier is a freak of a man. Hovering at nearly 7 feet tall he sticks out like a sore thumb wherever he goes. Given that his freakishness turns heads wherever he goes, sometimes he finds it a miracle that he can ever take a single candid shot. But that's cool with him because by day he is a mild mannered youth pastor with a cheeto up his nose and a smelly teenager by his side, he's seen enough miracles to know they happen every day, but not enough to know if he has spelled "miracle" correctly.

Wiedmaier wears glasses thicker than coke bottles and as a result, his whole world is a blur of color. He envies black and white photographers with their keen eye for details he would never notice on any given day, but he still loves living in a world of color.

While originally from Seattle, Ryan went to a little tiny college in a magical land where cold white things fall from the sky all year. People told him it was snow but he doesn't like it much. He would have moved back to his homeland, but while in this magical place known as "Canada" he met a beautiful woman who he fell deeply in love with and they had a beautiful and surreally wonderful wedding. They now live in Halifax where he is currently the interim Lead Pastor of Metro Wesleyan Church, and his wife is the Pastor of Creative Arts.

    "Wieds takes incredible shots every time he picks up his camera. He captures life at the moment that you want to remember, or want to forget...depends on his mood I guess :)"
