candid & relaxed but most of all REAL. I love emotion and connections, and that is what I strive to capture.

I am a natural light photographer and I don't use flash. I feel it takes away from the moments that are happening. Instead of me capturing a private moment it will turn in to a interrupted, "there is a photographer watching us, what do I do with my hands?!"

"I highly recommend Katherine Ruth Photography! I consider myself lucky that I found her work online. She was easy to communicate with, responded to questions promptly, and very professional. When I went to her website, I was drawn to her eye and ability to capture each individual and their respective personality or family feel through her photographs. When we met, I explained I wanted more of a 'day in the life' session for our wedding day and that's exactly what we got. She also took posed portraits as I requested them and documented all of the decor/rings/invites without any instruction. Katherine's personality allows you to be yourself as she stealthily captures your important moments. The digital format she uses to share the photographs is easy to navigate and share with others. I can't wait for a reason to work with Katherine Ruth Photography in the future." -Bethany W.

"Katherine was the first (and then the only) photographer we interviewed. We didn't want a lot of posed photos, nothing cheesy, we just wanted someone there to capture the love of the day. And Katherine has blown us away. I've only seen a handful of photos come back but they are all breathtaking. It felt like she was part of the family, not some stranger invading our space. Katherine and her second photographer were very stealthy and detailed. They knew exactly which shots they wanted and were patient to wait for them to happen. We were so relaxed with her and would consider hiring her again for life events down the road. We couldn't have picked a better photographer!" - Eileen W.
