I contacted Hannah last minute after deciding to have family beach pictures while vacationing in Myrtle Beach. I googled MB photographers and her name (same as our youngest) initially caught my eye, then her professional website sealed the deal. She had one date left and we booked it! Our family of five met at Myrtle Beach State Park and Hannah worked her magic for the next hour taking hundreds of photos of our family. She was extremely knowledgeable about lighting down to the minute of when the sun would set. She asked questions throughout to ensure she was capturing every pose, background and angle we wanted for our perfect family picture. She was amazing with our three kids who were crazy and uncooperative at times. She was the best photographer we have ever had and she made our session fun, comfortable and easy. She had our digital photos ready in less than a week and they are beyond gorgeous. Hannah is so very talented and a joy to work with! I can’t wait to order a huge canvas of our family and collage our children around it. Highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed!

We are from out of town and used Hannah for my daughter’s senior portraits. Hannah did not disappoint! She was so professional and made my daughter feel so comfortable. The pictures have turned out amazing. Everything we wanted and more!! We could not be happier with our daughter’s senior portraits and would highly recommend Hannah Ruth Photography.

Hannah did our family photos while we were on vacation this week. Hannah was great to work with from the beginning. She’s organized, detailed, and quick to respond to correspondence. She did a great job with our photos-we had five adults and four children (ages 6 months - 6 years) and she did a great job with them. To top it off, we had our photos back before we headed home and they are beautiful! I highly recommend Hannah and we’ll use her again.

Hannah was amazing and was a pleasure to work with. She made us feel very comfortable with a family of 3 grandparents, 2 parents with 3 children(9, 2, and 5 months old). Our set date had bad weather but Hannah was so flexible we were able to shoot earlier in the day in hot SC heat on the beach. She’s efficient and effective with her time with us. She gave great guidance on how to fix our attire and create really natural candid shots. Honestly, her style of photography captures “real” happy moments that are not staged and that was our focus. We want our family to remember each other exactly how we are in real life. She’s consistent with communication and provided direct answers to all my concerns. We all loved her and will definitely being seeing her again!

Hannah Ruth is one incredible human in many different ways. She is so dedicated to her work, an absolute delight to be around, works very well with other vendors, and makes you feel so insanely comfortable in a time where you are so uncomfortable in front of cameras and such. First off, our wedding was a destination wedding in Pawleys Island, SC, so we were only communicating via email and phone. She was incredibly responsive the whole time and never once think twice about our decision to hire her. We came into town one weekend a few months before the wedding to have some meetings with vendors and walk through some things. Hannah took this time to take some engagement pictures of us. We went to Huntington State Park and took some absolutely stunning photos. She knows that place like the back of her hand, so it was very quick shoot, yet yielded a substantial amount of amazing pictures. Also during this, she was very very very pregnant. She did the whole thing with a huge smile on her face, was hilarious, and made us feel so comfortable. Guess what? Two days later, she had her beautiful baby boy. Two days after his birth, we receive our engagement photos. If that doesn’t scream dedication, I don’t know what else does! She is incredible. Also, I totally recommend the engagement shoot before, because we were super comfortable with her from the outset on the wedding day as well, because we spent that hour with her before. The wedding day, Hannah Ruth killed it. She came in to take getting ready pictures and was so great with the whole bridal party and my family. She truly felt like another guest at the wedding, that’s how comfortable she made everyone feel. I didn’t stop hearing wonderful things about her from everyone, even including guests at the wedding (non-wedding party guests). She captured the whole day perfectly. She worked really well with my 2 small nieces and nephew. I could go on and on. Lastly, the price was very reasonable given the amazing work she cranks out. If I could make the decision over and over again, I would choose her every day of the week. Do yourself a favor and book her as your wedding photographer. Talk about zero stress, an abundance of fun, and amazing pictures.
