Hi, I'm Ruth and it's me behind the camera of Photography by Ruth.
Home is a beautiful little town on the Somerset levels and we share our cosy nest with a stubborn but loveable beagle (that's her in the photo). When not at work we all love strolling along the River Parrot & stopping off for a cuppa at our favourite local coffee shop.
Happiness for me is family and friends, pottering in the garden (& BBQ's on warm summer nights) listening to music, watching movies whether at the cinema or at home, long bike rides, coffee and carrot cake!!
I love to travel and explore new places and my wonderlust took me overseas for several years until I returned home to my native Somerset in 2006.
For as long as I can remember I've never had a camera too far from my reach, I've just always loved taking photos and filling countless albums with images of life's memories.
I began my love affair with photography over 25 years ago. From the day I decided to launch Photography by Ruth I knew that with every shoot I would do, I wanted my clients to feel free, feel relaxed and feel comfortable with me.
The best photos are captured when you feel at ease and you trust and know me, the photographer behind the lens. Capturing your precious moments is about you its not about me. I'm here to guide you, bring out the best in our shoot and advise you, but when the most beautiful of images are captured they show you in the frame being free, being natural and able to express the real you.
My approach to photography is friendly and relaxed, its important to me that whoever I am photographing feels comfortable and happy to have me around. My style of photography is mainly reportage, especially when covering weddings, I love to capture those special moments for you that are natural and personal.
I pride myself on providing excellent customer service and although I have a pricing structure it is more to give you a guide price because if my packages don't fit what you are looking for I am more than happy to tailor them to meet your requirements.
My promise to you is that I will be 100% committed to getting the best out of every photo therefore I have lots of ideas about flattering and unique shots but I am more than happy to chat about any ideas you have so that we can include them in the our planning.
I specialise in weddings,family & children portraits,lifestyle and natural light photography but I am happy to cover other requirements. I am based in Somerset but I travel all over the UK.
I am a Member of Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers and provider of images to stock companies EyeEm & Getty Images.
