Hi! I’m Ruth
Family Portrait & Wedding Photographer
Let’s Make Memories To Treasure.
Hi I am Ruth at Art & Photography I am a passionate creative and enthusiastic photographer. I have used my cameras for many years and really got serious after I raised money for a charity which was really close to my heart. I learn new techniques by investing in training each year and buy the very latest equipment when needed.
My family means everything to me I have two beautiful girls Michelle and Nicole and two favourite son in laws Andy and Sam. I also have two amazing grand children who keep me young and very happy Pashy and Sebby. I also cannot forget my best friend and partner Billy who keeps me very grounded. Another addition to my family is Sweep my rescue dog who is daft as a brush, boisterous energetic and is partial to eating shoes.
I love living in Harrogate and know the area well ,I am often out walking with the dog looking at different areas for family shoots etc. Not to say I cannot travel I have recently been to Birmingham and Scotland to capture some special moments.
Now as for shoots I love listening to you lovely people and get lots of ideas when listening to you. I love to hear about the detail and all you have invested to make your wedding day perfect. I am here to capture those special moments throughout your day.
My style of photography is natural meaningful, romantic and at times posed for those couple wedding shots. I do love working in natural light and making the most of all that beautiful light. But I also love dark and moody light such as dark venues and churches. I also love setting up speed lights and using off camera flash for night-time shots.
I also cover a wide range of photography from families to pets, parties and Christenings.
I also take pride in hand editing every single image I have taken
Have a look through my work and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you like my style all enquiries welcome. I would love to hear from you.
Thanks Ruth x
