I am a photographer because I love taking photos. I love weddings and seeing couples who love each other unconditionally tie the knot; I also love documenting families as they grow and change, be that with children or pets. Being a married mum of two boys (and a dog mum, too!) I know the importance of capturing these precious milestones in life. Believe me when I say the years pass by so quickly!
Much of my work comes via recommendation, either from previous clients, local wedding suppliers, guests at weddings, or my social media stalkers! I’m genuinely grateful for each and every recommendation.
I am also very proud to be listed as a 2022 Rock My Wedding recommended supplier.
It’s important that when booking your photographer, you book someone who you feel comfortable around. The best way for me to demonstrate my style is by showering my website with images, and providing you with honest feedback directly from some of my clients.
“We chose Ruth to capture our Wedding on 03.07.21, she was just fantastic, professional, putting us at ease and taking fantastic photos! We are thrilled with our previews ones (so surprised by how quickly they were done). Plus Ruth has a number of talents, and was bed maker, traffic officer, children’s entertainer and dress puffer! We were bowled over by just how fantastic she was and we would recommend her 100% for any wedding day photography! We can’t wait to see all of our images! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“We had Ruth do our wedding photos and all I can say is AMAZING….
Ruth turned up bright and early to do pre wedding photos of us all getting ready, she was so professional but so friendly and just fitted in perfect. (even popping the kettle on when needed or pouring the champagne!!!
We had photos during our ceremony and after and also during the night.
we can’t recommend enough.
Memories to treasure forever ❤❤❤”

“I’ve had Ruth come and do a couple of photo shoots for me, she did a cake smash for my toddlers first birthday and also a newborn shoot when my youngest was born. I would always recommend Ruth, she is friendly, bubbly and always puts you at ease. She captures the most beautiful shots and has given me a lifetime of memories! Thanks Ruth!!”
— Hannah Richmond.
“We’ve had several photo shoots with Ruth with various combinations of family. We’ve found her highly professional and Ruth works unobtrusively. She even manages to put my reluctant husband at ease enough to get some lovely family shots. We have some amazing pictures of our little people as they grow, including our newborn shoot (she even managed to find some flattering angles of me 1 week post partum and seriously sleep deprived!). I can highly recommend and have bought a number of vouchers; they make a great gift”

“Ruth was chosen to take my daughter & son-in-law’s wedding photographs Saturday 16th November and judging by the sneaky preview of some of them, we’re in for the wow factor!
Bless her, she was amazing, right from early morning when she joined us at Woodland Waters Lodges while we got ready, through the church ceremony and then back at the beautiful lakeside setting of Woodland Waters and the Malden Suite.
We certainly had some giggles, especially when I, MOTB accidently cut my husband’s shoe lace up and Ruth came to the rescue and fixed it. So, not only did she cover the wedding with her photography skills, she mucked in and helped us get organised, while still clicking away in the background!
The highlight of the day has got to be her photos of the groom with his bigger catch of the day, the common carp (20lb) caught for him by his angler chums especially for the occasion, with an annoyed bride watching on (all staged of course)
Ruth made us all feel relaxed with her informal, natural organisation of where, how and what she wanted from us, and I bet she caught some wonderful in the moment shots too!
All in all it was a lovely day and we are so pleased that we chose Ruth, herself a local business, which made it all the more special as we chose local throughout the event, cars, wedding cake and venue. I would highly recommend Ruth for her friendly, yet ultimately professional service. Thank you Ruth x”
— Angela Shields – Mother of the Bride.
Ruth was brilliant from the start of the planning process to receiving our beautiful pictures from our wedding day back in September we saw all her pictures on social media and thought yes this is definitely the one for us! she was lovely and chilled but also had answers to all our questions always staying professional and friendly ! the wedding morning is generally a pretty stressful time but Ruth was a lovely, calming presence to have there which was much appreciated (and was even fetching me kitchen roll while I was shoving my fourth breakfast down my gob haha) all our pictures came out wonderful and she captured moments beautifully. we would highly recommend her for weddings but all other big life events too as she creates a perfect portal back to all those wonderful moments
