Kind Words

 Ruth is a lovely person and an amazing photographer! She made the effort to visit our house when we were decided who to go with to take our wedding pictures - after her visit, we did not want to see any other photographers! She was very professional, yet very friendly and shared our love of dogs which was an added bonus! Ruth kept us up to date with everything in a very timely manner and she went to extra mile to provide us with a free photoshoot (on a very windy October!!). On our wedding day, Ruth arrived promptly and she blended into the background (which is what we wanted) to ensure she captured 'real' moments of the day. Of course she also did some 'posed' pictures which were stunning and she got some brilliant pictures of us with our beloved Labrador Lacey. Her timely and efficient manner continued following our wedding. Ruth is such a lovely person and her photographs are fabulous too!


Ruth manages to combine professional competence & expertise with a friendly, personal, flexible approach. She is such fun to work with & nothing is too much trouble. So much that she seemed like a member of the family. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a truly excellent photographer.


Ruth Mitchell is a fantastic wedding photographer. She met us before hand to get to know us and what we wanted. She was friendly, warm and unobtrusive on our wedding day.  The photographs she produced were beautiful, natural and a perfect reminder of a very special day.  I would recommend her to any couple wanting a flexible, lovely, professional, does exactly what you ask style of photographer.


Ruth was amazing from the first time we met her, she made us feel so at ease and comfortable. We wanted our wedding to be a very relaxed, happy occasion, and Ruth's natural style of photography reflected this perfectly. We absolutely love the photos she has taken and just can't decide how we will ever choose just 130 for our album, there are so many amazing shots, I can't even pick my favourite. I can't praise Ruth highly enough, she has captured the feelings and emotions of our day so that we will be able to save the memories forever.


This lady was there for us right from the beginning, she explained everything from our very first meeting suggesting our best options as our wedding preparations were a bit unusual from the get go with friends and family camping in our large garden and we wanted some of this incorporated in our pictures. Ruth told our story so well, many pictures of events happening we knew nothing about and were delighted to see them. All our pictures told our story all natural and we never ever saw Ruth taking any of them (she was a true secret squirrel) . We did have formal pictures taken and these were planned with Ruth before the wedding and on the day were taken with the minimum of fuss "perfect" just what you need on an already jam packed day!!!. When we saw our proof book we were amazed she captured us , our personality, our humour and the love we have for each other so well. Her service all thru was outstanding ,friendly, professional and we cannot thank her enough, we treasure our pictures they all hold such happy memories for us and we are just waiting for the chance to get Ruth to do some more photographs for us.


Given that we lived in Kent and were getting married in Yorkshire - finding a photographer was quite stressful. We had one meeting with Ruth on a flying visit to Yorkshire and she was so relaxed and calm about everything that you could feel the stress draining away immediately. Whilst she did take family shots, ones at our request, her whole ethos is to disappear into the background and be as unobtrusive as possible - it worked, we could be ourselves (important as neither of us like the limelight!!) and we weren't thinking about being photographed all the time. Most of the time I had no idea where Ruth was!! The result - a wonderful album full of relaxed photos perfectly encapsulating the day. A very experienced and professional lady who deserves every accolade she receives.


Ruth is amazing! She was so down to earth and friendly and made us feel very relaxed. She even bought us sparklers so we could do a fun and very creative night shot. Her style is so natural and I hate having my photo taken, but her shots wowed me. She captured tiny details like the sweetie table which was so nice so see looking back. The quality of the album is fabulous and the proof book made us really giggle.


Ruth is very friendly and professional and took some amazing pictures at our wedding despite the  gale force winds that struck our day! Ruth captured our wedding guests wonderfully with lots of natural shots. Just what we wanted. Ruth was always very approachable and easy to get hold of and such a lovely person. She just blended in to the wedding perfectly!


Ruth was excellent at making us feel relax whist having our photos taking. She managed to capture the day so well. We would highly recommend her to anyone needed a photographer for their wedding day.


William and I could not recommend Ruth highly enough and this award would be a credit to the hard work and amazing job that Ruth does.   Due to us living some distance from North Yorkshire where we married I met Ruth twice before our wedding day and William only on the Thursday before our wedding on Saturday yet when we saw Ruth on the day it was like seeing an old friend and she made us feel truly comfortable. Especially for two camera shy people.   In addition, Ruth went beyond what we could have asked when she offered to come to our rehearsal to meet with our minister and put her mind at rest about having the ceremony photographed. We couldn't be happy that Ruth did this as these are some of the most precious photographs of the day capturing such a special moment in our lives.   To make things better we love every single photograph Ruth took for us and almost 4 months after our wedding we still can't get the 300 proofs we have down to just 150 for our album because we just want them all!!!   All of our friends and family that were there thought Ruth fit seamlessly into the day and have loved looking at the photographs and there natural essence. And friends who weren't there think Ruth captured what looked like a really fun and special day superbly. One friend said they were the best wedding photographs they had ever seen.  Ruth Mitchell really deserves to win this award for making our wedding day last a lifetime in the most beautiful photographs.


Ruth is like a family photographer to us now!!  We loved the photos she did at my Mum's wedding, even though my Mum ordered a basic package from Ruth she got amazing natural photographs in which all the family were included and made to feel really at ease!  She definitely did the same at my wedding, we have our photo book sat proudly on our coffee table and everyone commented on how fantastic Ruth was on the day!  We look forward to her photographing my sister's wedding next May and receiving a professional, but friendly service from Ruth.


From the initial contact with Ruth, we received the highest Gold standard customer service possible. She made it very easy for us to give her our ideas and thoughts of what we would like for our wedding photographs. She fully understood and listened carefully to us. She offered advice when it was needed and very quickly we both felt that we were in very safe hands with Ruth and that we would receive a top quality photographic record of our big day. She was professional and very approachable and we felt that we could at any time contact her to discuss further thoughts and ideas. We were so taken with Ruth's professionalism and after seeing her photo results from previous weddings we did not need to look further for a wedding photographer. My wife and I have both been involved with Customer Service in our professional lives and Ruth's CS skills are amongst the highest we have come across in our many years of experience. We arranged a pre-wedding photo shoot and the photo results were outstanding both in quality and composure. Ruth achieved the "at ease" feel to the pictures which is exactly what we wanted. During the wedding day itself, Ruth completely put us at our ease, she went the extra mile to make sure everything was just right for the photos. She even helped with making sure the men's button hole flowers were fixed correctly to show them at their best. Her style of working at distance using a telephoto lens has produced the most outstanding photos I have ever seen. Her formal shots have also captured the happy feeling and the quality of the pictures is second to none. Ruth worked extremely hard during the wedding day and very quickly produced the on line proofs for us to see during our honeymoon. The resulting photograph proof album is just wonderful and to be honest we are having such a difficult but lovely time in selecting the final photos for the finished album. Ruth went through the different photo packages and  we both felt that she was providing absolutely great value for money. Every single photo in the proof album is a winner. Overall, we cannot rate Ruth higher for the service she provided, the quality of her photographs, the value for money and her commitment to giving us a perfect photographic memory of the time before and during the wedding.


Ruth is a fabulous lady. Professional, relaxed and cheerful throughout. The warmth and life brought to each photograph she took, is beautiful and full of emotion. It was lovely to see so many candid shots of our day. You see something different, every time you look. Ruth's natural and unobtrusive style, tells the story of our wedding in a way that posed photographs could never do. Some really special moments were captured, creating a beautiful narrative of our day - a story without words The completed album is beautiful, and shows many hours of painstaking preparation, it is put together with such care and beautifully presented. From start to finish Ruth went above and beyond what you'd expect from a photographer. A wonderful lady and company to have at our Wedding.


'Ruth Mitchell was everything we could have wanted in a wedding photographer - she took a mixture of posed and candid photos, moving among our guests with ease  and quiet authority. The photos captured our day brilliantly without interfering or taking us away from the celebrations for too long, and the finished  albums are beautiful.'


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 is an extremely passionate photographer who cares about her clients and made everyone at our wedding feel relaxed and equally important. Our photographs were perfect and captured everything that we wished for. The album is even more perfect and tells a story of our day in pictures. Ruth is extremely professional and delivers excellent customer service and a range of packages to suit all needs.

Ruth Mitchell is a fantastic photographer that accommodates the clients every need. She has a very natural and relaxed feel to the day itself and made ourselves and all of our guests very relaxed! The standard of the finished wedding album is exquisite and the overall communication through out was exceptional! she did not fail to deliver on a single promise she made and helped us relax and enjoy our special day!   Would recommend 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.

Ruth's photographs always capture the moment.  When we spotted her work whilst visiting a potential wedding venue (Simonstone Hall, Hawes) we knew Ruth would be ideal for our Special Day. We were married at Hipping Hall, Kirkby Lonsdale over 70miles away from where Ruth lives but she still visited the venue before the big day. She is a pleasure to work with and deserves to win. 

Ruth really helped to put us at ease on our Wedding Day.  She didn't boss us around at all and instead took lots of lovely natural pictures as the day unfolded.  We found it very difficult to choose pictures for our album from the proof book which Ruth provided as they were all so great. Ruth answered all of our questions promptly (email) and put together a beautiful album which we will really treasure.
