Rooted in the city of Sacramento, I'm a traveling wedding and elopement photographer serving all of Northern California who simply just loves capturing love. I believe falling in love is one of the most beautiful feelings a human can experience. Being surrounded by the people you love, loving what you do and who you are, and choosing to spend the rest of your life with someone is too significant not to be photographed. I want you to be able to look back at your photos and remember the real moments captured and feel that nostalgia of how you truly felt in that place at that time with your people. The romance, the laughter, the tears, the pure joy...I promise to capture it all, so you can sit back, relax, and be in the moment knowing that these memories will last a lifetime.
I'm a full time wedding and elopement photographer who recently moved back to my hometown of Sacramento, CA. I'm truly happiest living here surrounding by my closest friends and family. I'm a city gal at heart and living in the middle of what seems like a big city brings me so much joy. The hustle and bustle keeps me motivated. I love exploring new coffee shops and restaurants, and taking my adorable 2 year old corgi, Georgie, on walks around my cute neighborhood.
I value honesty, connection, deep conversations, a good cup of peppermint tea, long walks, sunsets, finding stillness within the busyness of everyday life, road trips along the CA coast, and spontaneity. We'll get along if you're carefree, laid-back, and adventurous.
To document your day
as it happens–candidly & authentically by showcasing the raw emotions of this significant chapter in your life.
“Where do I even begin? Alyssa is incredibly talented, professional, and down-to-earth. Alyssa captured both our engagement session and wedding day. She is very thorough in preparation for each shoot, and her attention to detail when shooting is insane. We are beyond thrilled with the results. We have already had so many compliments on our photos from friends and family. If you're looking for a wedding photographer, look no further. Alyssa Ruby Photography is the way to go!”
“BOOK ALYSSA NOW! She did an incredible job! She captured intimate moments, knew the perfect poses and locations, and made us both feel super comfortable. Neither myself nor my partner had every done professional photos before and she helped us with everything. She was super flexible, friendly, and easy to contact. Her photography skills are amazing and she will give you the engagement/wedding photos you are looking for! Would 100% recommend”
"Alyssa is by far one of the best wedding photographers in the business! She captured both our engagement shoot and wedding day pictures - with her organizational skills, both days went seamlessly. She listens to your input, is so patient and understanding, super responsive, and absolutely kills it in capturing the best moments! She has an incredible eye for getting the best lighting and makes the shoots so much fun. The environment she creates showcases on the camera and even though we are not comfortable in front of the camera, she made us looks flawless and model-like! We loved all the photos she sent back to us! They were all amazing! If you’re looking for someone to capture that moody, candid, almost film-like images, then Alyssa is the photographer you want and will not regret!”
“STOP LOOKING NOW!! Alyssa is your girl if you want beautiful & authentic pictures that actually capture not only your day but who you & your partner are as a couple. We were so lucky to find alyssa through one of our friends recommendation (she also hired alyssa for her wedding) & we couldn’t be happier with not only the photos but the experience. It was my husband & I’s first experience being photographed & she made us so comfortable at both our engagement shoot & as well as our wedding . She worked so well with the rest of our vendor, was always on time, captured every moment & detail, & made our friends & family very comfortable. We will forever cherish the moments she captured & getting to meet her.”
"Alyssa Ruby is quite simply the best photographer we have ever seen - every time we see wedding photos we compare them to Alyssa’s work and it just doesn’t come close. I can’t recommend her enough. I’m going to list below some of the specifics that really make her stand out and hopefully you will make the smart decision and hire her too (if she’s not already booked). 1. Exceptional photo composition, attention to detail, master of lighting, master of seamless editing, and just an all around bad ass who can work that camera like there’s no tomorrow. 2. Calm, cool, awesome and fun personality you actually want to be around during your wedding day. 3. Extremely thorough and organized. You won’t have to think about anything other than getting married and having the time of your life because Alyssa runs the show with flawless ease. Hire her - period."
