The absolute BEST photographers out there! From the Bride: The first time meeting Amy & Anthony we knew we had to book them for our wedding (we basically booked our date around them, to ensure they would be available). They were just so easy going, up beat, and you could... Read More tell they absolutely love what they do. Amy was pretty much glued to my hip, from getting ready, getting us out of church on time, and to our cocktail hour so that we did not miss any of it. She kept me calm when I needed it, made me laugh when I was about to break down, and made the day go by as smooth as possible. She captured every moment from beginning to end, I could easily relive our wedding just by putting our photos together. Her style of photography is simple. It's fun and natural. Together, they some how managed to get a group of 16+ people through photos (which came out amazing!) and still have us arrive to our cocktail hour on time (even though we were running an hour behind due to transportation). We have received so many compliments on our photos, some form people we don't know, asking if we were married on some tropical island, because our photos looked amazing. Amy & Anthony truly are the best at what they do and I am so happy we chose them. Seeing as I have heard horror stories from previous Brides and their photographers, I am so glad we went with them. I can't wait to book them again, and I still rant and rave about them to any bride-to-be. Note: If you have kids in your bridal party, don't worry. Amy will do whatever it takes to get them to look at the camera, even if it requires her jumping up and down and making animal noises. From the Groom: The first time we met Amy and Anthony I knew we were going to book them for our wedding. My soon to be wife was already in love with them, so it wasn't really like I had a choice. (Happy wife,happy life right?). It was by far one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding. Amy and Anthony are professional, friendly, and flexible. I don't think throughout the entire wedding planning they said "no" or "that can't be done." Any request we had they were more than willing to accommodate us. Going to several friends weddings prior to planning our own,we could see how rude and dictator like some photographers could be. Amy and Anthony are nothing like that!! They guided us through some difficult decisions throughout our planning. Our wedding day logistics were a little unorthodox, with every minute counting.. Anthony was more than willing to get dropped off with me , and ride with us in the limo the church. The entire time he was friendly, funny, and professional. The other groomsman couldn't believe how great he was. He took great shots of us laughing and having fun. Mistakes made by our limo service, caused us to run an hour behind. Amy and Anthony offered to drive myself and wife to the venue in their own car so that we wouldn't be late to our cocktail hour. What other photographers would do something like that? They took unbelievable photos of my family, friends, and us on our special day. We barely noticed them throughout the night, but when we needed a photo they were right there. Amy and Anthony even helped the maitre d with time management to make sure we didn't fall behind schedule with our speeches and special dances. If you're thinking or even planning on using Ruby Star, don't wait to long, they book fast as word gets around on how great they are!


Totally blew us away!

The photography for our wedding day was our number one priority beyond the venue, and the area where we allotted a decent percentage of our budget. On top of samples of wonderful work, we were searching for a photographer who we wanted to have a good connection with, because... Read More honestly, out of all of the vendors you will be hiring, the photographer is the one you will be spending the most time with. That photographer we were in search for ending up being the incredible dynamic duo, Amy and Anthony! From the very first time meeting with them, we knew they were the ones we wanted to have photograph our wedding day. Not only are they talented and professional beyond words, they are amazing people—people who we wanted to spend the day with, capturing our memories and to have fun with while doing so. They are an incredible team who go above and beyond... they truly exceeded our expectations. And the photographs we now have to remember our day by are absolutely stunning—they are so beautiful I get teared up looking at them!


Amazing!!

I highly highly recommend Ruby Star! Amy and Anthony are amazing photographers. After seeing their beautiful website and all the rave reviews, I knew I wanted Ruby Star for our wedding. We did their engagement shots, wedding photos, photo booth, video, and photo books too. We... Read More absolutely love all of our photos. They are beautiful, artsy, fun, and capture the day perfectly. Amy and Anthony are a joy to work with as well. Amy was hilarious and made us feel at ease during our engagement and wedding day photos. Our emails were answered right away. Amy even called us half way through our engagement to chat and make sure we were staying stress free with wedding planning. Both Amy and Anthony were so on top of everything on the big day. They knew exactly which shots they needed. We were crunched for time so it was super helpful having professionals getting all the shots quickly. They were fantastic with family and kids too. After the wedding, we got our sneak peek back super quick. We got all our photos back within a few weeks too. It was awesome sharing pictures with family on their website. In sum, we loved working with Ruby Star! Amy and Anthony are a joy to work with, super professional, positive, and enthusiastic too. We highly recommend them!

I normally don’t write reviews but I can’t stress how upset I am of how my pictures turned out of my wedding day. I asked for certain pictures that I did not get the pictures that I did get the important ones came out blurry and every time I try to print them it looks like we... Read More were drawn on the paper. Not really a high quality picture and that is what you pay for. As they both were very nice and kind individuals I cannot stress that enough I was just more upset of the quality of the pictures. There are some pictures where I wish I was made aware that I was not smiling I mean I know they’re constantly trying to capture the moment but why take pictures that you know are not going to come out well. Your wedding happens once-in-a-lifetime and moments you can’t redo. It’s sad when you try to look back at your pictures and all you see is how poor the quality was I’m not really of the day.

Absolutely love them! For our wedding we were looking for high quality photos, affordable prices and people we felt comfortable with and that could help make our day run smoothly. When we spoke to Amy and Anthony, we knew they were perfect for us! They started their business... Read More after a bad experience they had with a photographer and truly go above and beyond. They took so many amazing shots and made sure to get all of the unique photo ideas I sent them prior. We had a few conversations before the wedding where they asked a ton of questions to make sure they understood our family dynamics and what we were looking for, and the day could not have been more perfect! Our parents and bridal party said they were they best photographers they've ever worked with! When we received our photos, we were blown away at how amazing they came out and how they truly captured the day - photos we'll have forever and even saw some moments we missed with our guests! The videographer was also great to work with, was not too intrusive and worked really well with Amy & Anthony. I am recommending Ruby Star to friends & family so hopefully I can work with them again!

All of our friends and family are so impressed with the pictures and now my cousin is using... Read More them for her wedding in April! Amy is so kind and sweet and without her I probably never would have figured out how to put on my dress or how to bustle it. She saved the day on multiple occasions. Anthony is so funny and relaxed and not afraid to have some fun. My husband really clicked with him. Tom, the videographer, was so stealth, we never even knew he was there, but he was! he got every angle of the day.

For my now-husband and I, photography was the most important vendor we had to book for our big day. We got engaged during Christmastime, and decided it would be a great idea to get married Memorial Day weekend. We booked our venue on Christmas Eve, and met with Amy and Anthony... Read More the day after Christmas and we instantly felt like all of the pieces for our wedding were magically falling into place, and only a week after being engaged! Amy and Anthony came recommended by our venue, The Old Field Club, and upon meeting them, we instantly understood why. Amy and Anthony both were always around, but also gave us the distance to enjoy our wedding...and gosh did we ever. We are so glad we chose Ruby Star as our photographers, especially now that we have attended weddings since our own. Often, photographers can be so focused on completing a specified shot list, and making sure we get photos with every family member or guest, and I have always felt like that makes the wedding more about the family and less about the bond you just formed with your significant other. Their mission is to tell the story of the big day, and they did so without meddling much, if at all, and that is exactly why we chose them. If it weren't for all of the MANY photos we have, we wouldn't even remember who was at the wedding! I don't even know where they were hiding throughout the night, but somehow, they didn't miss a single one of my ridiculous(ly beautiful) facial expressions. They did a flawless job capturing my husband in his finest moments on the dance floor, and for that alone they earned 5 stars! Jeff and I receive incessant compliments on our photos. Amy and Anthony have done so many weddings, they seem to have developed knacks for getting kids to smile, smoothing over a family spat, getting things back on track when there is a timing hiccup or transportation vendor issues, all while ensuring every detail of the day is captured through their lenses. If I had a vision for a photo, all I had to do was ask and it happened. We also loved that they have a photo booth and props, which we booked, as well, and we have all of the photos taken in there! If you are planning a wedding and looking for a photographer, book Amy and Anthony yesterday. They far exceeded our hopes and expectations for our wedding day, and we are looking forward to booking them for family photos in the future. Thank you so much!

I don't want to forget the videography aspect! Tom, the videographer seemed to always be where he needed to be for the perfect capture! The video editing was on point and all was set to great music.
