Comfortable and confident. That’s how my clients feel during their sessions, which totally makes my day! My name is Ruth, and I am a wedding and portrait photographer in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I create vibrant images of couples and young professionals.
Maybe you’re a senior about to graduate, or a bride gathering her dream team of wedding vendors. Maybe you’re an actor or an artist whose headshots could use a refresh. I’d love to learn more about you! Let’s get coffee, or tea, or smoothies (whatever floats your boat), and plan your session.
BEHIND THE LENS
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.
Having studied at international music festivals as a classical violinist, 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 - it took all my willpower to keep my camera in the bag.
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. What’s exciting you these days? Send me a message, and let’s get started.
