My husband and I could not be happier to have had Ruth capture our big day. We were fortunate enough to have worked with her for our engagement photos, and immediately thereafter we knew she was a perfect fit for us! Posing for pictures is certainly not our strong suit, but she made it effortless - and with beautiful results!  She is very skilled at being able to describe how to move, stand, or position yourself to secure the best photos, but she also does an excellent job identifying the natural and beautiful candid moments.

 Ruth is so patient and kind. It was clear how invested she is in preserving the memories of our engagement and wedding. She was an absolute joy to have around us. She was able to capture the special and intimate moments of our wedding day; the best man writing his speech, the bridesmaid pinning the boutonnieres, the tearful mother-in-law, the uncle who stood out of his wheelchair to join the dance floor on his feet. She was so in tune with the event that these unscripted moments are forever captured and preserved for us, and we are so thankful. In sharing our photos, I have been complimented so many times for the gorgeous work that Ruth and her second shooter, Micaela, did. She was careful to also capture beautiful shots of our guests, which we are so grateful for! We will certainly be able to look back on our photos with joy and wonderful memories as years pass. 

Looking through our wedding photos has been such a blast. She captured pictures of everything without being intrusive in any way. Her turnaround is superb, and she so courteous, kind, and thoughtful and we will highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. Thank you, Ruth! - Ashley and DJ


We had a big destination wedding in Greenville, Maine.  People coming from all around the country.  She was at every event, capturing the moments and making sure she had a quality photo of everyone attending.  The ceremony was flawless, and the family photos taken afterward are priceless.  Finally, she worked the reception as well, making sure we had everything we could ask for.

She also got a little artsy, taking extreme close-ups of jewelry, the veil, the lace of the dress.  Within a week, we had access to all of the photos, with her touching them up or adding special effects as needed.

All 3 of our groomsmen are amateur photographers, and all 3 were impressed by her professionalism and by her VERY high tech equipment.

My recommendation:  Purchase the complete package from her.  Pay to have her at every event, because you'll be sorry when you see the cell phone photos from everyone else!  Please feel free to email us with questions about this review.  My name is Kidist Beyene,


Words cannot describe how thankful we are. You perfectly captured both big and small moments and I just cried through the entire slideshow. Thank you doesn't even come close to expressing our appreciation for capturing this perfect day so beautifully. 


I just wanted to thank you for being a part of our wonderful, joyous day.  You were so in tune with Devon, and made us all feel comfortable and at ease. You are a true professional ( in addition to being kind and caring).  Thank you again!


Ruth is an awesome person and unbelievable photographer!! She is very professional and hands on. You will definitely not be disappointed at all with her work.  She takes the time and has the patience to catch the most beautiful photos!! Our family photos and pictures of our son are the best!! I feel very lucky that we found her and she comes to take photos of our son every year!


Great family photoshoot experience.  Made it painless and timely, both hard to achieve with a pre school aged child.  The turn around for the proof was very quick, too.


Ruth is a very talented photographer.  She has been able to capture me so beautifully.  Her photos all look really natural and show me really well.  I a m a firm believer of showing myself as raw as possible, because I want people to see me and not another airbrushed model.  She can convey a magical quality with ease, not to mention my mischievousness.  Her turnaround is fast, too.  Ruth's photos of me were just spectacular!


Excellent job.  Ruth was on time, professional, very patient and worked her way to a beautiful result.  I just love my pictures.  Thanks for your help.


Ruth is very pleasant and professional. She went to scope out the venue before the event so she can include the best features it had to offer in the photos. Beautiful results....thank you Ruth


Ruth came to my home to photograph my kids and I. She was so relaxed and friendly that my children were immediately put at ease and loved posing for her. She was patient and truly captured my children's personalities.  The photo's she took for us that day are truly treasures we are extemely grateful for. I highly recommend Ruth to anyone who wants beautiful pictures.


My boys and I had a wonderful experience working with Ruth Ganev Photography for our family portraits. Ruth came to our house to take the photos and quickly transformed our living room into a studio. Although it was our first time meeting in person, she was very personable and easy to talk to... She was great with my small boys. The photo shoot ran about 90 minutes from set up to break down so I would come armed with snacks or "special treats" if working with any little ones to keep them focused. It will be well worth it! We received edited digital photos in just a few days and we were blown away by the images the captured. They were simple, yet beautiful and you'd never know they were taken in my living room. I will definitely contact Ruth for family photos in the future.


We are so glad we chose you as our photographer because you were very professional and flexible.  You handled yourself well when everything was seemingly coming apart at the seams. The first look and family portraits came out great. For doing the ceremony solo, you managed to get a lot of different angles.  I'm glad that out of the few times Jon and I were on the dance floor you managed to get good pictures of us. We were really happy with our experience with you as our photographer.
