MEET RUTH NYQUIST
I am a nomad at my very core.
I grew up in a family who loved to travel the world, so you could say that I’ve got the bug in my genes.
I’ve been playing with a camera for 18 years; family videos on tape show me trying to figure out the inner workings of a film lens.
I began with family adventures and capturing car rides in the wilderness. Thirteen years later my passion became my profession after I was asked to take photos at my friends’ wedding.
I see life as a mass cluster of raw, unfiltered moments. My goal is to capture said moments and retain as much of that life as possible. My gift is being able to create emotion with stillness out of the small moments that pass by the fastest. Life is a beautiful, wild adventures. Your memories should be nothing less.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
The photographs Ruth took for our wedding are perfect! She captured everything we had hoped in the most beautiful and natural way. The photos really capture the joy and love that was felt that day. Ruth was also fantastic to work with. She made sure to take time to know what we wanted and was always quick at responding and answering questions during the planning process. I highly recommend Ruth!
Ruth was THE BEST. So so wonderful to work with, and the pictures are INCREDIBLE. I always get super stiff and awkward in front of a camera, but Ruth did both our engagement and wedding photos and made it so easy for me and my (now) husband to relax and have fun. She’s incredibly talented and captured the fun moments, the sweet moments, the romantic moments…everything. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to preserve their most precious memories.
Ruth did an amazing job capturing our wedding! She not only captured beautiful pictures but her photos reveal raw emotions, moments, and love from the day. Her photos included every detail and event of the evening. Looking at them truly is like stepping back in time to that perfect night. I would HIGHLY recommend her!
