Hi friends, I’m Ruthie. And I love weddings.
I began shooting weddings in 2010 and have captured around 50+ special wedding days since then. My approach is a mix of photojournalism and creative portraiture. Being a photographer, however, is about so much more than these stats and facts. I believe that photography really comes to life when it’s personal and when it serves a greater purpose than just the click of the button.
When I’m not behind a camera you can find me traveling with my hubby, Chris, or snuggling up to a recent episode of Law and Order. Chris and I have been married for 9 years and each day spent with him just gets sweeter and sweeter. We just welcomed our first child, Emerald into our family this past November! She brings SO much JOY to our lives… we feel incredibly blessed to be her parents! We also enjoy serving and doing life with our church community (Banner Hill Church). I’m a firm believer that there is beauty in simplicity, and that is exactly what I strive for in everything I do. There are so many facets of life that fire me up about living to the fullest in the everyday. Simple and full. That’s the goal. Yet, while I aim to live in this way, I believe this life is not my own. I am called to a greater purpose even beyond simplicity and fullness, and that is to live for the glory of God.
I love getting to know my clients and making sure they feel loved and cared for through the whole process – from the time you book me all the way to the end when you receive your images. Get to know me a little better via my promo video here. I’m looking forward to connecting with you!
