“Ruth is a friend from University, I knew she had been doing so well in all her areas of photography since we left over 10 years ago as I followed both her editorial and wedding photography Instagram accounts which showed her remarkable talent, so knew we wanted her as our photographer as soon as we were engaged. We loved the look and feel of her photos which were so natural and relaxed, exactly what we wanted ours to be. Ruth photographed our whole day along with her two assistants who, as Ruth is, were professional, friendly, lovely and patient, we all laughed a lot at how disorganised our families were while trying to get the group shots! Considering we had three people taking photos, it never felt intrusive and we hardly realised they were there at times! Ruth’s ability to capture exactly how you feel on the day is incredible. Having just received all our photos back, I can safely say we loved nearly every single one – the happiness on our faces was caught from all angles perfectly! All our friends and family have commented on how beautiful our photos are, of us and everyone else who came to our wedding. Ruth didn’t miss a single shot, which with our grandma’s at the wedding are the kind of shots you will treasure for the rest of your life. I couldn’t recommend Ruth enough as a wedding photographer – I have no doubt that you will absolutely love your photos as they will tell the story of the best day of your life perfectly! THANK YOU Ruth!” xx

“I first met Ruth at my best friend’s wedding, where she was the photographer. Rach’s photo’s where amazing, as was Ruth and her colleague from start to finish. As soon as I got engaged I contacted Ruth straight away to meet up and to book her in. Before the wedding Ruth came and met me at the site and the church to have a look around and get a feel for what photo’s would look good. Just looking through her website and following her on Instagram you can tell she has heaps of experience in a wide range of photography from Weddings through to fashion. On the day Ruth and Charlotte arrived ahead of schedule, and started to photograph myself and the bridesmaids getting ready, they were very professional, polite, calm, and seemed to move around the house without being noticed. Ruth’s calm, professional demeanour is second to none, and is exactly what you want as a bride on your wedding day when you want everything to be perfect. A huge worry of mine was how long the professional photos would take during the reception, but Ruth wizzed through these and managed to organise our 45 family members quickly and politely, and all of the photos are fantastic. Chris and I are the least romantic people and the thought of having a shoot of us two was making us both cringe, but Ruth & Charlotte made us laugh throughout and feel at ease – the photos are just amazing. Working with Ruth on the run up to the wedding was easy and she always replied to e-mails very quickly and could answer any questions we had, more amazingly is the day after my wedding I woke up to an lovely e-mail from her and three amazing photos from our big day J. The photos where all complete by the time we got back from our honeymoon, which allowed us to relive our day when we got home. All I can say is, her photos do all the talking, if you haven’t booked your wedding photographer then you should book with Ruth. She is second to none and we will treasure our photos forever. Thank you Ruth x”

“I first saw Ruth in action when I was a guest at a friend’s wedding. At other weddings I have been to I’ve noticed that photographers are often overbearing and demanding, that the photographs felt posed and unnatural and all a little bit awkward. What struck me about Ruth was that she was the complete opposite. She seemed to achieve everything in a natural, easy and comfortable way – getting the best out of everyone. When I actually saw the amazing photographs from that wedding I knew that I had to book her and I am so glad I did. Joe and I are not photogenic, we hate having our photographs taken and are both pretty shy. However, Ruth made us both feel so comfortable. She has bags of experience and talent and it shows, she put us both at ease, gave us fantastic tips as we went through the day and made the whole experience of having our photographs taken fun and enjoyable. She has the most amazing ability to capture emotion in her photographs and really document the moment which means so much when you look back at the photographs of the day. She was well prepared prior to the wedding, taking full details of those ‘must have’ shots, and achieved them without disturbing the flow of the day. I have received so many compliments about my wedding photographs and I am so glad I booked Ruth. You only get one chance to document all of those special memories and I couldn’t be happier with Ruth’s work. I cannot recommend Ruth more highly – if you have not booked your photographer yet you really should book with Ruth Allen Photography.”

“Ruth did a brilliant job of photographing our Hampton Court House wedding earlier this year. We came across Ruth’s website and were both immediately drawn to her photographic style. We did have appointments booked with other photographers that were quickly cancelled after we met with Ruth; she was so lovely, down to earth and was clearly keen to help us ensure that she photographed our wedding the way we wanted it. On the day, Ruth and her assistant Lucy turned up whilst I and the bridesmaids were getting ready and they were about as unobtrusive as two people with large cameras could be! They really captured the whole day without me ever feeling like I was being watched. Both were so professional whilst being genuinely lovely to be around, and they put everyone at ease very quickly. Following the ceremony, we had the more formal family shots – Ruth had worked with us beforehand to create a list of all of the shots we wanted to achieve and got the best man to round people up for us in anticipation for each shot. The system worked brilliantly, meaning we got all the shots we wanted without compromising everyone’s time for drinks and mingling. (My grandma still mentions to this day how well organised and coordinated it was!) For the rest of the day and evening, both Ruth and Lucy captured the most beautiful shots of our guests and only left the evening once the cake was cut and the dancing was well underway. One of the most special things was seeing the photos for the first time whilst on honeymoon; we knew that Ruth would put up some of the photos on her website but hadn’t realised how quickly she would do this, or that more photos would be added to it every day. It became a morning ritual on honeymoon to wake up and have a look at Ruth’s website to see the new beautiful shots she had added overnight. Overall, we couldn’t be happier with Ruth’s photography, her professionalism and having her and Lucy as part of our day. She would without a doubt be our first choice if we ever need a photographer in the future and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ruth to anyone else who is looking for beautiful, fresh, modern photography.”

“Picking the right photographer was so important to me, and the biggest decision I was going to make. I spent a long time searching for the right photographer, and I am so glad I came across Ruth. Her elegant, classy, natural photo’s were exactly what I was looking for, and thats exactly what I received. Ruth is extremely professional, calm and patient. Her eye for detail was clear, and she captured moments which I never thought I would be able to see again. I knew my photo’s were going to be lovely, but they exceeded all my expectations. I have had some amazing feedback, and have many friends and family already asking for copies. Ruth is clearly an extremely talented, passionate and lovely girl, and this comes through in all her work. I cannot recommend Ruth highly enough, and I would honestly say that I genuinely love my photos and will cherish them forever. Thank you so much Ruth, I am so grateful to you for taking the most beautiful photos I have ever seen. I feel extremely lucky to have found you and cannot express how thankful I am. xxx”

“When I initially found your photography and the style, I literally had that gut feeling that you are the one and only photographer for me, I even was desperately emailing and calling you worried that you might have no availability for the day. When we met, I again had such a nice feeling about you as a person being kind, and sweet, and asking all the details of how we met, as if you were already plotting a love story in your head and how best to capture it. We both loved you, your style of photography, and your personality – I felt very relaxed and uninhibited, knowing that I can trust you to capture our day. And as you remember, the photography was the main reason for us to even arrange a wedding and invite 100 guests, so that in the future I could look at my pictures and remember it as the happiest and most beautiful day in our lives, and your work exceeded all my expectations! You were absolutely great – you made me feel beautiful, relaxed, confident and your work was beyond and above any expectations. Honestly, I felt the happiest ever on the day and felt that I completely let my hair down in front of you, without feeling like I have to pretend or make poses, literally the pictures are glowing with happiness and golden light that we had on the day. I also loved how you were complimenting us, but in such a gentle and subtle manner that I felt like it was coming from a friend or relative, so that it made us feel and look even more natural. You listened carefully to our ideas when planning but also had great suggestions and implemented them, I was glad there was a form to fill in as it indeed make me plan ahead and think about the day. You very calm and gathered so that I didn’t need to worry. Even with bad traffic and all the roads blocked, I was still in the know that I can trust the process and you will capture all the beautiful moments with your natural style of photography. I felt like we gelled so well and was part of the close circles of friends and family, you were always there but somehow invisible and non-intrusive and you both worked so hard and didn’t stop for 1 minute throughout the day. You are so professional and so kind, me and Andrew, and all our wedding guests look stunning on the pictures, I am still smiling every time I look at them and all the beautiful memories of the day come back. We kept the whole day speaking, and smiling, and dancing, and soaking in complements and I can see how you captured every single lovely moment of the day. We are also so thankful that you included our son as well, I am sure we will be back for regular family photos and people absolutely love the end-result, they are all complimenting how stunning your work looks! I also feel like the beauty is in the hands of the beholder, with your work it seems like you captured the most beautiful side of people, as someone who can discover the nice parts and somehow touch up on those that are less pleasant to the eye:)) I mean I think that us as objects are not even close to how stunning the pictures look, but I guess we were on the day and I am so grateful that you were there to capture so many wonderful moments. We are so lucky we found you and huge thank you again – I think your photography actually makes us want to repeat the whole day again and again, who knows maybe the renewal of the vows will be my next big project!:))”

“When I met Ruth at the Landmark Wedding Fair I was immediately impressed, aside from being completely charming and beautiful, her photography is totally amazing and far superior from the usual wedding photography on offer. After checking out her website I knew I had to have her for our wedding. Ruth is professional and a pleasure to work with. On the day she and her colleague were extremely fluid and the photos were seamless with a perfect mix of portraits, group and informal shots. Her reportage style captured the special moments of the day beautifully. And her fantastic eye for magazine work also meant we were able to have great fun playing around with some “magazine” style posed photos which were fantastic fun and will be great memories. The photos are so beautiful that when displayed, they actually look like they came with the frames! I would highly recommend Ruth to anyone and please think twice about booking anyone else to shoot one of the most important days of your life.”

“When I first met Ruth I was bridesmaid at another wedding she was photographing. Before I even saw any images I new I had to have her photograph my own wedding. Along side being such a lovely person the professionalism on the day was outstanding and the end portfolio of pictures was excellent! When it came to my wedding Ruth was so good at keeping in touch all through the build up to my big day, on my wedding day she was fantastic! At the ceremony you wouldn’t even know she was there but the images she has created are wonderful. She was extremely organised and gave my new husband and I some direction for the ‘couples’ shots as and when it was needed which made us both feel so at ease and really enjoyed having the photo’s taken. We have had many comments from our guests already about how lovely Ruth was and even more in regards to the pictures! The portfolio of images we have received from Ruth from the ones when i was getting ready to our first dance are really out of this world!! We could not have wished for any better. The attention to detail is brilliant and the mix of staged shots and natural shots is something that we are both so grateful to have. If you are looking to book a good photographer that is reliable, lovely and very very talented do not hesitate to book Ruth. Thank you once again.”

“We found Ruth via facebook and instantly loved the style of her photography. We loved the mix of the reportage style photos with the more staged ones. After looking at a lot of different photographers’ work, Ruth’s photos really stood out and we knew we had found our photographer! We had a look through Ruth’s website and booked her straight away. We met up a couple of months before the wedding and I got to show Ruth the church and the reception venue. I felt that we immediately clicked and she understood exactly what we wanted. On the day, Ruth and her assistant Katie were fantastic and immediately put us at ease and as a result we absolutely love every photo! Ruth was very accommodating and has captured our day perfectly, write down to the little details! Many of our friends and family have commented that we are going to have a hard time choosing which photos to put in a frame and which to put in an album as there are so many lovely ones! We will be recommending ruth to everyone we know, in fact a friend of mine has already booked Ruth for her wedding next September!”

“Darren and I first knew we had to have Ruth as our photographer when we saw the beautiful photos from our bridesmaids wedding. From the moment we spoke about our day we knew we’d made the right decision. Her friendly and professional approach helped us feel at ease – the pre-shoot was absolutely brilliant and Ruth’s captivating images were the talk amongst all our friends and family. On the day itself, Ruth’s calm nature and keen eye for detail helped produce absolutely stunning images. She managed to seize not just the atmosphere of the day, but those moments you could not plan to capture, and those are the images we can’t thank her enough for. So many of our guests have commented on how Ruth put them at ease when taking images on the day, and so many have been bowled over by the fantastic photos they’ve seen. The service provided was incredible, the quality of the photos was outstanding, the only problem is going to be choosing which photos to print! Thank you Ruth, through your images we’ll be able to relive our day over and over again, taking in snippets we may otherwise have missed.”

“We could not have wished for a better wedding photographer than Ruth! From our first meeting, she understood exactly what we were looking for and we ended up with perfect pictures. Ruth managed to combine a relaxed, friendly manner with complete professionalism. I particularly wanted someone with whom I felt comfortable taking the photos, especially the ones of me and my bridesmaids getting ready, and Ruth fit that bill perfectly. Throughout the day, she managed to get the best shots without getting in the way, and was lovely throughout. I had quite a specific vision of what I wanted our photos to look like, and Ruth really met that brief. I was incredibly impressed with how quickly Ruth sent some initial photos through, which was lovely to be able to look back at the day so soon. I also really like the fact that she sent us a USB stick with all of the shots once they were ready. We absolutely love them and will treasure them forever.”

“I met Ruth at the Landmark wedding fair and she seemed friendly, approachable, and the kind of person you wouldn’t mind having at your wedding. What struck me about her photos, and my reason for choosing her, was that the couples looked real and very happy. So many photographers have models posing on their websites, but to make real people look good, that takes real skill. This was particularly important to me since I was 40 when we got married, and also 3 months pregnant! On the day, Ruth and her assistant were really professional but also very pleasant and inconspicuous. When we received the photos they were stunning, not just of us but of our two children. I still look at them with joy. Thank you Ruth for helping to capture the best day of our lives!”

“I just wanted to say thank you again for the photos you took at our wedding. I found you through Instagram and immediately knew that I wanted you to photograph our wedding. I really liked your style of photography – nothing looked overly posed or too try hard which is exactly what we wanted. The whole process from enquiry to post event was really simple and straightforward and when you have 1001 different things to sort out it was really nice knowing that the photography was all taken care of. Everyone has been so chuffed with the photographs and has asked me for your details – even the ones who are way off getting married! Personally I always feel uncomfortable in front of the camera and you really put me at ease and got some really great pictures. We are so thankful for you capturing the day – it really comes across as such a fun and relaxed event which is what we really asked for. Wishing you all the best x”

“As soon as we met with Ruth we knew she was the person we wanted to have around on our wedding day. Ruth is kind, professional and incredibly respectful during the intimate moments of the wedding day. She was brilliant during the posed shots yet became invisible during other moments, such as the speeches, which enabled us to enjoy the day and have the most natural photos to look back on. We have no doubt we could not have found a better photographer for such a special day in our lives. She listened to the editing style we wanted and she got our photos back to us so quickly so that we could start enjoying and sharing them with our friends and family. Ruth we cannot thank you enough for going above and beyond to make sure you delivered us the perfect wedding photos. We cannot recommend you highly enough and we are so glad that we found you xx”

“I booked Ruth after seeing her photograph a wedding that I was a guest at – I was so impressed watching her work on the day and also with the resulting photography. Having Ruth as our photographer was some of the best money we spent on the wedding. Photographs really matter when looking back on the day, not only for us as a couple but for family and friends. We didn’t feel that the photography was invasive or took over the day but through Ruth’s skill she still didn’t miss any of the formal photographs that we wanted. However, it’s not always the formal photos that remind you how great your day was – it’s the natural fun and excitement that is so important to remember when looking through the photographs. Ruth’s ability to make sure these moments were captured means we have a set of photographs that remind us of how wonderful the day was – and how fun it was. Neither of us especially like having our photographs taken(!) and Ruth made us feel totally at ease which is really important if you are going to capture natural photographs. I felt totally confident that Ruth had done all her homework in advance to make sure the group shots were carried out seamlessly – and quickly, which meant that we could get on with the business of enjoying our guests company and the day. I couldn’t have felt more confident in her building up to the day which is exactly what you need. I very much felt like I was in control of the photographs that happened and that she listened to what we wanted as a couple. We are delighted with how the photographs have come out and I could not recommend her more.”

“Ruth was an incredible asset to our day. She was professional, kind, fun and hugely knowledgeable of our venue for the best backdrops! She took hundreds of stunning photos, both staged and natural, all by blending in seamlessly amongst our guests. Our treasured photos were available to us just six days after our big day. Every single picture paints a thousand words and they document memories to last a lifetime. Thank you so much, Ruth. You were fantastic!”

“We used Ruth Allen Photography for our wedding on 4th July 2015. I had looked through Ruth’s wedding photography images online and thought they looked great. We were quite specific as to what we wanted from the photos- We wanted a lot of natural photos of my guests and couple shots but not too many posed shots. We met Ruth a couple of months before the wedding to explain about our wedding, the venue, guests and explained our brief. She was very professional in her approach and nothing was difficult, she also added in her own suggestions which worked really well and she got what we wanted straight away. On the day Ruth brought Sally her assistant along with her. Both girls were great! Really relaxed, friendly and chatted to all the guests a lot. It was great having them there as they were lots of fun and very approachable but weren’t in your face and demanding of our time. They got the job done very efficiently with out being shouty and bossy which is what I have seen in previous weddings. We got the photos back really quickly and were absolutely delighted with them! They are amazing and they completely reflected the mood and atmosphere of the day. We also decided to get a video done. Sally shot this on the day as well as taking still photographs. We completely love the video! I cry and laugh every time I watch it. It is finished so perfectly and professionally and we are both so glad we decided to go for it! When we have shown the photos and video to friends who weren’t able to make the wedding they have all said they feel like they are there and we feel the same every time we watch it. Amazing, amazing, amazing job – would recommend Ruth and her team to anyone and everyone!”

All of her photographs are stunning and her relaxed and approachable personality made me certain Ruth was who we wanted for our day. Before our wedding we met with Ruth to talk about what kind of shots we were looking for. Ruth made me feel so relaxed and reassured me on any worries or questions I had. On the day Ruth was fantastic, professional, unobtrusive and friendly. We couldn’t have asked for better and well her photographs, they are breathtaking! We have the most beautiful collection of photos taken by Ruth which we will treasure forever. Thank you so much! We would highly recommend Ruth to anyone as you are guaranteed a magnificent service and photographs!”

“We booked Ruth Allen Wedding Photography after searching around the internet for someone who we felt could do our wedding photos justice on our special day – we most definitely found that in Ruth. Her professionalism is amazing. From the start Ruth was there to answer all our questions and concerns with the wedding photos. We couldn’t wait to meet her in person. Ruth has the most brilliant aura around her, and the most lovely calming nature… When meeting her in person at our wedding venues we instantly clicked and bounced ideas off of each other. She took everything that we had asked for and made the most stunning photos out of it. On the day of the wedding Ruth was there taking all our pictures both ‘formal’ and ‘relaxed’. Both sets that we’ve seen are AMAZING! Ruth has out done herself.  I will truly miss Ruth with her professionalism and photos, and will definitely be recommending her to anyone who will listen! I’m now trying to find a reason for using her again! Thank You so much Ruth, we are forever in your debt for capturing our special moments from our wedding on film.”

“Ruth Allen photographed our winter wedding in The Cotswolds this year. From our first meeting, we knew we weren’t going to have to look anywhere else for our wedding photography. We cannot put into words how thrilled we are with her photography and overall approach to our wedding from start to finish. Her enthusiasm and professionalism was fantastic. I was a little nervous about the prospect of having my photograph taken all day, so was my partner. However we arranged a Pre Wedding shoot which I would highly recommend, we had a fun and relaxed afternoon in the park a few weeks before our wedding, it was the perfect opportunity to get used to being photographed and put us at ease, we just spent the afternoon chatting away and getting to know each other. On the big day itself Ruth put us and our guests completely at ease and we could not have felt more relaxed in her company, or in front of the camera. This translated into images which captured ‘us’ and our happiness perfectly. She did a perfect combination of reportage, documentary-style photos which document the day as it was, with posed photos which meant we had some beautiful photos to display in our home. Ruth made our big day everything we wanted it to be, and produced a stunning portfolio of photographs and wedding album that has stunned all who have seen them. I would without a doubt recommend Ruth to any couple getting married.”

“It was really important to us that we had the right photographer on the day, as we both wanted natural shots and also to feel comfortable with a camera around. After a recommendation, we found Ruth and immediately loved the style of all the photos and shots shown on her website! We met Ruth a few months before the wedding and we both immediately felt assured that she would do a brilliant job. On the day of our wedding, Ruth was relaxed, happy and fun capturing every moment of our day in ‘a story’. She was professional, accommodating to the plan of the day and made us feel completely at ease. When the wedding was over, we were never expecting to see the photos so quickly! It was a wonderful surprise and having received an amazing collection of photos, we now have some beautiful memories of a special day. We couldn’t recommend Ruth highly enough.”

“We searched long and hard to find someone we liked to take our wedding photos, after viewing many photographers web sites we eventually decided that Ruth’s photos were the most natural and beautiful out of all we saw.  We contacted Ruth and we agreed to meet up at our chosen venue, Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park.  As soon as we met Ruth we knew we had made the right choice, we wanted someone natural, fun, professional and unobtrusive and Ruth fitted the bill perfectly.  On the day her unassuming style and warm personality made her part of the celebrations rather than just the photographer, we really enjoyed her being with us on our special day as did all of our guests who were thoroughly impressed.  The end results were truly amazing, the pictures are all beautifully poised, natural and full of colour and vibrancy.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Ruth and we hope we can find an excuse to use her services again in the future.”

“I have had the privilege of knowing Ruth personally, outside of her profession for a few years now and so she seemed the obvious go-to choice when we were looking for a photographer for our Wedding in April this year. You would think being friends already would make life much simpler for Ruth however I know that for her it is one of the biggest commitments she takes on as it is a lot more pressure to get your friends photos “just right” and it can often strain a friendship with so much responsibility laying at her door. She does her job no matter who it is however, in complete calm and is professional and relaxed (putting her subjects at ease!) throughout the whole day.  I can honestly say that myself, my new husband and all the friends and family that attended our wedding are absolutely thrilled with the photos and all complimented me several times throughout, and following, the day about how lovely Ruth is. Luckily for myself & Ruth she and I are still great friends and she has captured the most special day of my life so far in perfect, truly-beautiful freeze-frames. I will never forget the experience and whatever the next occasion may be (Hopefully not a wedding!) I wouldn’t think for a second before picking up the phone to her and I can 100% guarantee that anyone else who does the same will never regret it.”

“We were recommended Ruth through a friend at work. We had searched a lot for a wedding photographer that would suit what we were looking for. We wanted a photographer that wouldn’t expect us to spend all of our day posing for pics to get the right shot and Ruth was perfect. She was lovely from the first moment we spoke with her and listened to what we wanted. On the day she was brilliant and completely unobtrusive. It must have been a challenge for her as it was quite chilly and we didn’t want to stand around too long but she captured lots of beautiful photos in exactly the style we were looking for. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get some fabulous shots of their big day.”

She had really listened to us and managed to take at least one great photo of everyone at the wedding. All our guests complimented us on our choice of wedding photographer, and several have asked us since for her contact details. We would not hesitate to recommend Ruth, and we have a set of photos we will treasure forever!”

“When we started thinking about our wedding photos, we decided we wanted them to look professional but also feel natural at the same time. As soon as we saw Ruth’s website, we knew we had found our photographer. Of course, we hadn’t met Ruth at this point so we didn’t know if she’d have the personality to match her incredible portfolio. We needn’t have worried. After 5 minutes of meeting Ruth, we both ‘clicked’ with her and felt comfortable chatting to her about our big day and ourselves as a couple. Before the big day, Ruth made us feel assured by keeping in contact and explaining what would happen throughout the day so we’d both feel at ease. When the big day finally came, Ruth and her assistant were extremely professional, friendly and patient with us and our guests. In fact, many members of my family and friends commented on her professionalism and courteousness and I’ve already had friends asking me for her details for their wedding. We both had such an amazing wedding day and we’re so pleased that Ruth was able to capture all of our favourite memories. If you’re thinking about hiring Ruth, go for it. You won’t be disappointed.”

Brad & Rachel Testimonial

“We were recommended Ruth by my brother who had met her at a friends wedding. After visiting the website and loving her work we organised to get together, following on from this meeting it was such an easy decision to have Ruth photograph our day. Before the wedding Ruth came to our venues to take a look around and start getting some ideas of what photos would look good, her experience in both weddings and fashion means Ruth can work with pretty much any setting! On the morning of the big day Ruth and her colleague arrived and started photographing the bridesmaids and myself getting ready, we all felt totally at ease and to be honest barely noticed they were in the room. This continued throughout the whole day, they both seemed to just blend in with the guests! The photos of Brad and myself were a worry to us both as we are not the most romantic couple and this could have been quite an awkward moment! … but Ruth was fantastic and totally made us both very comfortable, looking back on the photos there are some really amazing ones of us as a couple which we are both thrilled about. We have now had all our photos back and are so happy with all of them, Ruth captured everything we had asked for and more which provides brilliant memories of our big day. My mum and dad organsied for us to have the photo album as a surprise … the book is beautiful and we are both so pleased to have this as a very special keepsake. Ruth was so lovely to have there on our day, she was so easy to work with, very kind natured and nothing was too much trouble. It was almost like just having another 2 friends there. Her time keeping was excellent and keeping in contact before the wedding was always great. We both couldn’t recommend her more highly, if we were to do it all over again we wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you Ruth :-)”

“I cannot express how much I love my wedding photographs! Ruth and Charlotte had their work cut out as it rained constantly on our wedding day, however the photos are still absolutely amazing! Ruth managed to get all the photos I wanted and still capture the beauty of the Cotswolds despite the rain. We even managed to get our own twist on the confetti shot which included a lot of colourful umbrellas. Ruth really puts you at ease and makes you feel so comfortable. She has lots of experience and talent and that really shows in her photographs with every single detail of the day captured and an ability to capture the emotion of each moment to bring it back to life and make sure we will never forget our special day! I am so glad I booked Ruth as our wedding photographer, I received so many compliments on our photos. We couldn’t recommend Ruth highly enough.”

“Ruth is an absolutely amazing photographer, and conveniently also our good friend so it was an easy decision to ask her to photograph our wedding. We have a big family and bridal party with lots of different groups so needed quite a few posed shots which some photographers don’t like to do, but Ruth and her second shooter got through them all quickly and efficiently and got everyone to be where they needed to. She checked in several times to make sure we had all the group shots we wanted through the day, and was happy to add ad hoc shots too. All our family and friends commented on how relaxed and non invasive the photography was, and have been blown away by the results! Lawrence doesn’t really like having his photo taken but Ruth was calm, relaxed and encouraging and got all the photos. She also encouraged us to go out after dinner to take some additional “golden hour” photos which are the best ones of all. The photos surpassed our expectations and truly captured the nature of the day. She created an online album and also sent a usb of all the pictures by the time we were back from honeymoon. There were so many to look at, we felt like nothing was missing, every important aspect was captured. In addition to the posed photos she really captured the big and small moments, informal moments, background photos and everything in between. I would recommend anyone to use Ruth to capture their special day, she is a true technical expert but it felt like having a friend around for the day. Book now, you won’t be disappointed!!”
