Destination wedding + elopement photographer


"moody, messy, mandrakes."


Meow, Meow Meow


I want to focus on the electricity between you & your person, your closeness and your story as it unfolds. I want to capture your silly in-between moments and your fierce love!

In a sea of familiar wedding images, I hope you see something different, something that makes you go “yup she is the one!” The “one” for the adventurers but also for those that are perfectly happy sitting on the couch and playing video games, for the ones don’t mind throwing away the umbrella to dance in the rain when it pours as well as for those that want to chill on the couch drinking coffee or hot chocolate with a cozy blanket, for the ones that want to go chase the waterfalls and for those that just love hanging out at Chickfila or any other fast food joint! 

Just your average witty muggle!!

Bold . Weird . Imperfect

Why me?!

There you Are! I have been looking for you....

Planning a wedding or an elopement can be a lot especially if you are doing it in a place where you don’t live. That’s why you have me, your photographer & planner all wrapped up in one 5 ft short package to help you plan the best wedding or elopement and make sure your day is the freaking magic! Because not only am I an awesome google-er but I also have connections all over the world to help you do exactly that! 

My biggest goal is to make this process as simple and stress free for you as possible and for your wedding day to be all about you. I'll be there to answer any questions, research & send vendor recommendations, help find locations, make a timeline and even pick up things for you if that's what you need me for. Wedding days go by so fast and I will be right there capturing it all and taking care of everything for you so that you & your boo can concentrate on celebrating the day with each other including but not limited to steaming your dress, pinning boutonnieres (because seriously not everyone can do that), rallying your families for photos and carry heavy things for you like your champagne bottle. In short; whatever you need I'll be there for you.

*cue the friends theme song!

Binge on

all the love stories!!

Our elopement was supposed to be around Easter of 2020, but the world shut down. We found Ruzin back then and knew 100% we wanted her to do our photos. Fast forward to fall this year, and we start talking with Ruzin again. She was a god send. She was there for every little thing you could think of. She helped with the location, with finding an officiant, and any question we had. When we were getting pictures and having our little ceremony, she even helped with the little details like holding the rings until it was time for our kiddos to take them. She was amazing with our kids, too. She talked with them, which is often a detail overlooked, even with family members. She made getting pictures taken absolutely painless and even small details mentioned (like the fact I wore my late grandfather's shirt over my dress as i hiked up the mountain since he wasn't able to walk me down the aisle) a priority to photograph. I would have been okay with mediocre photos. We got the sneak peeks, and wow! Everything about them was more than i could have ever imagined. Ruzin was worth every penny. We kept our elopement a surprise until we got these pictures and I'm so glad we did. Everyone that saw these photos commented about how amazing they are. Thank you so much for making our day feel like a dream! We can't wait to see the rest of the photos.

It was a true pleasure to work with Ruzin. She instantly becomes more than your photographer, she becomes your friend. My husband and I were married on a day that a tropical storm decided to hit. Ruzin not only gave us BREATHTAKING photos but after taking pictures in the sideways rain, re-steamed and blow dried under my dress and just made me feel like there was no worry in the world! I can honestly say that our day would NOT have been same without them.

If you are like me and want to feel confident in your photos, and comfortable with your photographer then book Ruzin. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

We loved working with Ruizin Cunningham Photos! The day was so stress free and she made everything super easy! As a photographer myself I was pretty selective with who I wanted to capture our day and I can honestly say I don’t think I could have asked for anyone better! From booking all the way to wedding day everything was so easy! She even sent us sneak peeks right away so we could announce it to everyone! We are so grateful she was available for our day even though it was last minute! She even drove over three hours for our sunrise ceremony!! 

We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer or experience!

Ruzin ended up being accepted as a new member of the family. She is so easy going and has such a great attitude. Her pictures are all different, she captures the essence of each couple she shoots. We loved our dark romance photos. It will definitely not be the last time we work with her.

Her professionalism is through the roof. I felt like she was really invested in our wedding day and making sure our pictures looked beautiful. I had so much fun with her and wish I could've spent more time just getting to know her. Our engagement photos turned out beautifully and I cannot wait to see the wedding photos. I would recommend her again and again to everyone getting married in the Atlanta area.

- Hannah + Matt

Everyone absolutely loved her, we even got compliments from many guests. She captured our special moments, and wedding details beautifully. As an out of town bride, Ruzin made me feel comfortable and confident that everything would be taken care of and organized for my big day. My husband and I are beyond thrilled to have found her, and will work with her again in the future for anniversary shoots and possible birth announcements. Highly recommended!!!

"She went above and beyond even after the wedding day!"

But this time it's in a good way!!
