Ryan Young Studio Video Team

Your wedding is one of the most auspicious events of your life. Using our signature cinematic aesthetic, we will strive to capture your day--every special moment, every unique detail. It is our mission to deliver you not just a video, but a cherished film that will allow you and your loved ones to re-live every special moment of your day for years to come.

Lead Cinematographer Courtnee Owens strives to create films that are not only unique and captivating, but which emote and move the viewer. He received his B.A. in Photography from Tyler School of Art at Temple University, and for over a decade, he has been shooting weddings in Philadelphia and all along the east coast. During this time, he has skillfully honed his craft in film making. With years of experience in multi-cultural weddings (ranging from Catholic, Jewish, Greek, and Hindu, to Muslim, Chinese, and Sikh), his attention to detail and creative perspective enables him to be at the right place to capture every significant moment of your special day. 

Meet the team!

To me, weddings are the divine expression of union and creation between two people, shared with those that love them most. They are one-of-a-kind, and my motivation is to create a film that celebrates the love you share. Creating art has always been my passion; I've been in photography and film for 13 years, and a musician for 15. I love the magic behind blending stunning imagery with the perfect soundtrack to make an emotional and exciting film. 

Outside of weddings, I enjoy watching independent films, searching for new music, reading books on ancient wisdom, and practicing yoga and qi gong. As of lately I have been blessed with the joy of having a son, so nowadays when I’m not editing or shooting weddings, I can be found playing at local parks, dancing to Sesame Street, forming drum circles, and reading stories with my family. 

Weddings are one of the most intimate and important days of your life, and I am honored to be brought on as an "extended family member” to deliver you a timeless film that you and your family will enjoy for years to come

Hello, I’m Charlotte! I’m originally from the other side of the earth - China, and I have been living in the U.S. since 2012. I met a wonderful man and fell in love, which in turn sparked my love of wedding videography. It was 3 years ago when I had my own wedding; I thought it was impossible for someone other than me and my husband to capture it. But, my videographer beautifully captured the most unforgettable memories of my life. At that moment, I realized I would love to capture these precious moments and create a beautiful keepsake for other couples in love. Whether you’re getting engaged or married, I will capture pure and true emotions of your day. A pose can be staged, but love cannot.
