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 .......

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 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 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 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."
