Hi, I'm Ruby! I'm a 27 year old fun loving lass from Bristol. I'm the eldest of three and only daughter so I'm obviously fabulous.
I've always been the one who loved sitting on the floor, surrounded by my family photo albums, flicking through them with a smile on my face, reliving the memories and putting them up around the houses we've lived in. There was always too many photos of me and the boys and not enough of the family and my parents all together. Over the years I've taken this on board and made it my mission to make sure that everyone exists in photos...
I'm that girl in the street that sees families taking selfies and offers to take the photo for them.
I've studied photography at many levels through out the years, taking every opportunity to learn more and more about using photography as a tool to capture life. I graduated from UWE in 2014 with a BA in Photography and have been self employed ever since. I've photographed everything from fashion to funerals. Whilst I believe that having a degree in photography has helped me to get where I am today, I feel it is a lot more about the love and passion that I have for photography that allows me to produce the work I do.
Every photograph I take is influenced by the life I've chosen to lead; the lectures I listened to, the countries I've travelled to, the wonderful people I have in my life, the many Netflix series I've watched, the films I've seen, the books I've read and the museums I've visited.
If you don't feel like you know enough about me yet, I asked a friend how she'd describe me.... she said "Ruby, you're like a firework..." and I'm still not quite sure what she meant, but I'd like to think it's a good thing. Apparently it essentially it means I am a bright spark, full of fun, colour and life that can bring crowds of people together.
I LOVE pineapples, ever since I learned that they grew in bushes not on trees. Brunch foods, all day every day... I love cooking for my friends and family, socialising over cider, art & travel. And on the weekends I do love to get my best dress on and dance it all out.
I love singing, singing in the shower, singing in the car, singing everywhere I can. I couldn't care less what people think, it makes me HAPPY.
Despite growing up as a tomboy, I love all things pink, glittery & cute but I still don't own a pair of tights without a hole in and I can't keep fake nails on for more than two days. I've been raised as a feminist; supporting and encouraging others and being a kind, loving person is hugely important to me.
There is nothing like travelling solo around the world and meeting other humans doing their own thing.
I'm happiest surrounded by others and when I'm encouraging others to live their best lives.
KITTIES! I have two cats called Pixie bob and Seren/ Stubbington) They don't really like each other but I love them both equally.
I'm very lucky to live fairly central in Bristol and still have the joy of owning a large garden with a beautiful view of our local park and the sun always shines in the right place. I love having picnics there with my friends.
There are only a few things better in this life than planting bulbs in the cold months to watch them rise out of the ground in the warmer months, it has taught me that instant gratification isn't everything in the modern world.
I am quite literally and proudly OBSESSED with Grey's Anatomy, it is my very own version of therapy and if you know who Calli is, you know me already!
things I like
We were lucky enough to have Ruby capture our low key, barn wedding and she did so with love, passion, enthusiasm and boundless artistic flare; capturing a down to earth, authentic and handmade vibe through her magical lens. Ruby truly has a talent for capturing the moment, even for those who are exceptionally shy in front of the camera, making you feel comfortable, carefree and beautiful. A perfect balance of spontaneity, candidness and picture perfect poses complemented our wedding reel - I could sing Ruby’s praises for pages and pages! Ruby, you’re a wonderfully talented photographer and I think the world of you and the photos of my special day, thank you so much x
