Ruth H. Photography

Comfortable and confident. That’s how my clients feel during their sessions, and that makes my day! My name is Ruth, and I am a wedding photographer in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I create vibrant images that will stand the test of time, helping you remember the big and small moments from your day.

If you're a bride or groom gathering their dream team of wedding vendors, I’d love to learn more about you! Let’s get coffee, or tea, or smoothies (whatever floats your boat), and chat about your wedding vision. I can't wait to meet you!


"Ruth’s personality can make anyone feel comfortable in front of a camera."


Meet the Photographer

My friends call me an Enneagram Two: the helper. I bake sweet treats multiple times a week, and I can never hang out with a friend without feeding them - trust me, I tried once. It felt so weird that I moved our conversation to the kitchen and baked cookies.

Fun fact about me: I'm also a classical violinist. I studied at multiple festivals, so my camera and I are frequent travel buddies. We’ve climbed the Duomo in Italy, trekked across the Plitvice National Park in Croatia, and ogled over ornaments at a Christmas market in Prague. Most recently, we heard the Berlin Philharmonic play Verdi’s Requiem.

My photo style embodies my lively, bright, and colorful personality. My session style is similar: I help you feel at ease so that the pictures we take reflect you, living your best life. And as someone who is also a musician, cake-baker, and hairstylist at weddings, I've got quite a few tricks up my sleeve to help your day run smoothly. Send me a message, and let's get started!

Let's work together!
