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 .......

Yorkshire Reportage Wedding Photographer Of The Year

Last Summer I was very proud to be named the British Institute Of Photography Yorkshire Reportage Photographer Of The Year. Here's a little blog to explain my natural style of wedding photography.

2019 Wedding Photography Review

Just a few of my favourite moments from 48 wonderful 2019 weddings In Yorkshire, Newcastle and Austria.

Destination Wedding Schloss Mittersill , Austria

Becky, who is originally from Austria first met Josh, a Yorkshire lad, when he attended a ski coaching course run by her Sister. She said he arrived like a whirlwind and after striking up a friendship they soon realised they were meant to be together and Becky moved to Yorkshire to start a new life with him.

What my customers say

    "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."

    "Ruth provided exceptional advice and service from the moment we met at the Crab & Lobster wedding fayre. Ruth's wedding photos are outstanding and she really captured some amazing natural moments which we are so thrilled about. We did not have the best of weathers on our wedding day and the registrars delayed the start by about 40 minutes but Ruth remained very cool and calm and ensured that the photos we wanted were taken along with many other shots. She was innovative and was also extremely dog friendly and she adored taking photos of Honey our golden retriever. We had a second wedding celebration on the 2nd June which Ruth wasn't aware of but she still managed to get the photos ready within one week so we could do a slide show of them on our television for all our guests to enjoy. I will be recommending Ruth to all my friends."

    "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!"
