Hi, I'm Ruth
... welcome to my website

Hi, I'm Ruth - a wedding photographer based in Borrowby, Thirsk, North Yorkshire but will travel to West Yorkshire, Teesside, Durham and even further ( including abroad ) should you wish.

We've all been to weddings where the photographer took over the wedding. Well, I'm a wedding photographer who concentrates on capturing moments and being as unobtrusive as possible, leaving you to be with your family and friends and enjoy your wedding day. I love capturing emotion and laughter and telling a very real story of your wedding day, so if you like the idea of a relaxed photographer, please take a look at my website, gallery, packages, and for my latest work please see my blog and follow me on the social media sites. If you like what you see please get and touch and we can meet up for a chat.

Not all photographers are the same .......

Natural , relaxed, unobtrusive wedding photography

Have you ever been to a wedding where the wedding photographer totally took over, bossed everybody around, made them stand in rows like little soldiers and then took the Bride and Groom off for what seemed like hours for endless posed pictures and thought '' that's not what I want for my wedding ! '' well there is another way !

What my customers say

    "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 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 undoubtedly provided us with the highest quality of customer service, care and professionalism any bride and groom could have asked for. As soon as I met Ruth, I know she was the photographer for me. Her boundless energy, enthusiasm and willingness to listen to what we wanted as clients impressed me very quickly. Each and every guest commented on how wonderful she was on the day and have since commented on how wonderful our wedding photos are. Many friends have asked, who was your photographer and would you recommend her? The answer was without any hesitation absolutely! Ruth Mitchell is an amazing professional who listens with care to provide the attention to detail her clients want. The level of customer service before, during and after our wedding was of the very highest quality. Nothing was too much trouble. I cannot recommend Ruth highly enough."
