I am really excited you're here. 


I'm an adventure obsessed elopement photographer based out of Truckee, California. If you have no idea where that is, just think North Lake Tahoe. I was born and raised in this perfect little town of mine, and I have no plans of leaving anytime soon. I married the love of my life in 2017 on top of a mountain with our 13 closest family members present, and it changed my entire world. Since then, I have shifted my focus within my business to intimate weddings + elopements. It’s honestly the best.

I love to travel. I love the mountains. I love smiling faces. I love the last hour of daylight. I love coffee. I love, love life.

I'm loud and I'm vibrant, subtle & passionate, involved and yet distanced. I am an image maker. 

I've always been a little bit all over the place, as my mom would tell you. As a child, I was lovingly nicknamed "hurricane Ruthanne" (still waiting for them to name one after me, if we're honest) and my sweet husband has now adopted that nickname for me as well. Oh, yeah - and I’m (super) distantly related to Daniel Boone. You could say adventure is in my blood.  I live my life all over the place, and at any given time you’ll find me either driving to an epic mountain range, flying across the country, or sipping coffee on top of a mountain.

I would love to talk to you more about your vision, passion, and what it is that you love and hope to share with others.
