About Melanie Ruth Photography

So excited you have found yourself here! To me, weddings are not just about the big moments but include the seconds leading up to those moments. I want to infuse your story with the richness and vibrancy of your love, and the love of those around you. I am captivated by the connections between you and your guests throughout your day that strengthen the emotion shown through each image. I approach weddings knowing that it is with what I capture, that will document and preserve your love story for you and your family for years to come. I serve couples throughout New England. I have photographed as far as Vermont, Maine, and the Hudson Valley, as well as many beautiful wedding stories in the hills and shorelines of Connecticut.

    Excellent elopement experience

    Melanie was absolutely amazing. Besides being an excellent photographer with an eye for natural details, my partner and I found her confidence and excitement about our farm elopement idea and willingness to shoot a non-traditional wedding to be a huge relief. Having been together for 10 + years, we really didn't want to do a wedding at all but wanted the photos and memories and Melanie was able to run with that half baked vision and turn it into an amazing experience for us. We couldn't have done it without her because she thought of things we never would have thought of-- and in less than 30 days, and during a pandemic no less. I especially love that Melanie was able to capture the surrounding landscape and the general vibe of the day, weather, details in addition to the photos of us. Couldn't have asked for anything more!!

    Melanie captures amazing photos while making it fun and easy!

    Congratulations! If you’re reading this, you can stop your search for a photographer because you just found the one! You will be so beyond impressed with Melanie Ruth Photography. We were!

    My husband and I are by no means used to being in front of a camera but Melanie made us both feel at ease and captured the most beautiful photos of us.

    She captured photos that make you feel like you’re watching a movie because of how candid they are. It just takes you back to that exact moment when that photo was taken and every happy memory associated with it. She was timely, very cheerful, professional, and very good at reading the room and quickly learning the vibe of each guest. Even though she was very keen and aware of every detail during the wedding, she was not overbearing at all and gave us the space we needed throughout the ceremony. She even doubled as an impromptu wedding coordinator at our intimate wedding, making sure everything ran smoothly and everyone was where they needed to be for the ceremony.

    You can tell she absolutely takes her role seriously and will make sure that your wedding day is as special as can be from the very moment you start working with her until your photos are ready!

    We were so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Melanie and hope that you do too!

    Melanie was the BEST

    Melanie was absolutely incredible and definitely the best person we worked with for our wedding. From the very start she was so friendly and made us feel so at ease. Through all the challenges and adjustments that our wedding required due to covid, she was always supportive and so helpful. On our wedding day she was the ultimate hype-woman, making me and my bridesmaids feel so good about ourselves and getting everyone to laugh and smile for pictures. Our final album was more than I could ever have imagined - the photos were beautiful, she captured so many amazing moments, and everyone’s personality really came through. She was honestly such a joy to work with, I would recommend her to anyone getting married!
