"I can sum our experience with Ruth in two words: hire her! Ruth was an absolute professional throughout the planning process. She was prompt to respond to us, had a helpful consult with us before our wedding to go over logistics (she even provided a wedding timeline that was more thorough than ours), and day-of she was efficient at getting photos taken, creative with her poses and set ups, and worked non-stop for ten hours to capture our entire wedding. Ruth is one of the kindest, bubbliest people I've met, and having her around was a delight. This was great because (maybe obviously) it turns out you spend a lot of time around your wedding photographer on your wedding day!"
"Ruth is a talented photographer with a natural eye for aesthetics. She is joyful, organized, and easy to work with. She manages details with tact and thoughtfulness that greatly minimized stress on our wedding day. Ruth’s personality can make anyone feel comfortable in front of a camera. My husband and I love looking back on the pictures from our wedding day, and feel Ruth captured the full extent of the joy we felt that day. I would highly recommend Ruth to anyone!"
"Ruth has been a fabulous photographer both for my family and my student leaders at Calvin University. She captures such candid and natural shots and I always appreciate her professional expertise and joyful and friendly presence."

"Ruthie is such an incredible photographer! Getting professional photos taken can be a really stressful thing but she made me feel comfortable and confident. Her photos will cater to your specific needs, and represent a clear and honest image of YOU, but still be professional and polished. (She also got the best picture of my dad ever taken which is truly remarkable as he does not understand how to smile on command.)"

"Ruth is a wonderful photographer and one of the sweetest human beings. She is extremely professional and knows exactly how to capture the personality of each person she photographs. None of my photos with Ruth looked awkward or staged. I would recommend Ruth to anyone! You won’t regret it."
violist & teacher
"With her background knowledge as a musician Ruth was able to communicate with me easily to get great portraits that focused on me and the instrument. Our session was outside, and Ruth did a great job with using the elements of sun and wind in our favor. She is calm, fun, easy to work with, and knowledgeable. She had ideas about shots she wanted but also took my ideas into mind, which I appreciated."

"Not only was Ruth encouraging and a delight to work with, but she powered through editing our photos to ensure they would be done by the holidays. Great quality at an affordable price!"
