If you like a heavily posed, over photoshopped style where you are taken away from your guests for several hours, I'm probably not the photographer for you but if you would like the true essence of your wedding capturing, very real moments, with a handful of slightly posed ones and a few of the details, leaving you free to spend most of the day together having fun with your family and friends then I may be the photographer for you !
Ruth Mitchell Photography provides an exceptional service. At every stage of the process from the first meeting to receiving our wedding album she was very professional while at the same time related with us on a personal level which made her very approachable and easy to get on with. On the day she organised everybody but remained informal and captured some very natural shots. All our photos exceeded our expectations and captured our big day perfectly.
Amazing photographs with an excellent turn around. We got to view our photos within a week and a half of the wedding, with a sneak peak at a couple the day after the wedding. Ruth is so professional, she brought calm to our household the morning of the wedding and we hardly knew that she was there the whole day. Ruth was so patient with us and she was friendly and chatty with our guests. She knew the venues in advance and therefore where to take the best photos which speeded up the posed photo part of the day. We couldn't have wished for a better photographer and we are so pleased with the end result. All of our guests commented on her professionalism, we would certainly recommend Ruth to anyone.
Ruth was a total professional throughout the day and took some amazing photographs. She made what was a very special day even more special by presenting us with an album which was like a fairy story. There were so many beautiful photographs to choose from that it was difficult to choose our favourites. We have our memories in our album to remind us of that day for the rest of our lives. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ruth to anyone.
Ruth produced some beautiful photos, each and everyone captured a special moment so sympathetically. Everyone looked so relaxed and clearly unaware that they were having their picture taken, which is exactly the result that we wanted to achieve. I felt confident that Ruth would deliver spectacular results but she exceeded our expectations and her presence throughout the day was calm, relaxed and unobtrusive whilst being organised and professional - I was asked by a couple of people whether she was a guest, so she clearly blended in with everyone and no one felt uncomfortable having their photos taken by her. She managed to capture some relaxed and informal shots that represented the spirit of what we were hoping to achieve for our Wedding.
Ruth is friendly yet quietly firm, perfect for a wedding photographer! She did a fantastic job of our wedding photographs and many of my guests commented on how good she was. My sister has even booked Ruth as her wedding photographer! Most of all, she is a nice, normal person which cannot be said for all wedding photographers!
I had to organise my wedding in Yorkshire from hundreds of miles away in Gloucestershire. Ruth was brilliant from first contact and incredibly friendly. It was an easy decision to make to hire her for our wedding day. She was fantastic on the wedding day, taking pictures in the background, making everyone feeling at ease and taking photos of every detail so we could remember everything from our special day. When the photos arrived we were so pleased, we loved every one. They were so natural and really captured the mood of the day, everyone laughing and smiling like they didn't even know the camera was there. Ruth also did lots of wonderful formal shots and some of us in the countryside which really captured why we chose the Dales for our wedding. The photos were perfect and will be cherished forever. I would recommend Ruth to anyone wanting natural wedding photos that capture both the essence of the day and the beauty of the surroundings. Thank you Ruth!
We absolutely love our photos, they are very natural and really capture the fun part of the day. Ruth got so many of the details of the day. Ruth was amazing, my husband was very very nervous and usually doesn't like having his photo taken, but Ruth made him feel totally at ease and by the end of the day was totally loving it. Have recommended Ruth to two of my friends who are getting married this year. Brilliant professional friendly service, quick turnaround on photos, they were there on a disk a week later and could not recommend her enough.
