Photos are physical reminders of the link we have with the people we love. They are the gateway to years passed. They are a welcomed reminder of how much we actually love someone when we feel like we don’t. They are the proof that we loved hard and were loved hard during our time here. Your photos deserve to be taken by someone with as much care as possible for one human to hold. I will preserve the beautiful moments of your life with all the care, attention, and respect they deserve.
I’m Ruthie. I document honest, beautiful connection between humans. I care about capturing all of the moments that you two care about. I will strive to give you photos that will be cherished for generations. The photos that your babies can hold someday and feel close to you, photos that you will look back on and feel nostalgia for your wilder, more naive selves. I want to give you photos that mean something …so you can always know the love that was felt in your life.
Logistics: I live in Boise, Idaho, but I travel all over the country to shoot.
We absolutely loved working with Ruthie! She was quick to communicate and so easy going and kind. It had been several years since my husband and I had professional photos taken and I was a little nervous about getting in front of the camera. She put us right at ease, working with our personalities while pushing us a little out of our comfort zone when needed. This resulted in a gallery of photos that we love! We highly, highly recommend her.
My husband and I are both somewhat reserved and shy. I knew wedding photographs were important to me because I grew up obsessing over my mom's wedding album, but I couldn't imagine how my photos would wind up looking anything but awkward. Instead, they are absolutely stunning! Ruthie is a rockstar. She is quick to respond, easy to communicate with electronically, flexible with her schedule, and timely with her product. Besides being professional, she is SO FUN to hang out with. What a genuine person. Not only did she put us at ease during photos (engagements, rehearsal dinner, AND wedding day), my family and friends absolutely loved her. If you like a dreamy, calm, cozy, playful, romantic, and candid aesthetic, I can't imagine that you would ever be disappointed. She asks very pointed questions to feel your vibe as a couple, get the images that are most important to you, get a feeling of how much or how little coaching you want during the sessions, and help you decide on gorgeous shoot locations. Based on photographers in my area, she was also very competitively and reasonably priced. Worth every penny! Our galleries will be a treasure forever. Thanks Ruthie :))
I seriously wouldn’t choose anybody else. She knows good positions and how to pose people in certain way. She has weird but funny ways to capture the real couple, instead of stiff poses. She can really bring out the couple from behind the camera and capture pictures that I will cherish forever. I had her do my engagments and my wedding along with some fun photoshoots on the side.
Ruthie was absolutely amazing, hands down. She was both professional and extremely personable. She made two people who hate getting their picture taken feel beautiful and is a master at capturing emotion. Ruthie goes above and beyond and is very knowledgeable of her craft. She patiently helped me build a timeline for our wedding day, based on the best natural lighting for photos, and helped keep me on task during the entire event. Planning a wedding is super stressful but after talking with Ruthie, I knew immediately our photography was in good hands. We are so glad we got the pleasure of working with Ruthie. We ending up with absolutely stunning photos of our special day, photos that we will treasure always.
