If you have checked around my site then you know that I love to travel. Just like everyone else, I did want to travel when I was young but the difference is that I never thought I could ever be able to. When I was younger, my mom always told me I should be a flight attendant so that I could travel. I was raised in a very low middle class household in a small town in India and the only way I thought I would be able to travel or leave my town was if I working on a flight. Even our dreams weren't big to make us think, "hey one day I can earn money and take myself places". No way in a thousand years had I imagined that I would not only be not living in tiny town anymore but that I would travel to all the amazing, breathtaking places with another career. This is also one of the reasons I love photography so much. It helps me travel to places I never thought I would go and photograph love stories in some of the most beautiful parts of the world.
Whether you are planning a safari wedding in Kenya or an urban wedding in NYC, I am totally down to travel with you WHEREVER!! I get that it is freakin nerve-racking to hire someone you have never met and who doesn't even live in the same city as you. So you must be wondering, "Why the heck on earth should I work with her?!"
Let me tell you why - Because when you work with me you won't just get a pre-made, generic template or guide that was made for another client or bought off of etsy. But instead, you get a personalized experience with me that you may not find anywhere else. I do all the research for you depending on your needs including but not limited to finding your locations, vendors as well as making your timeline. I will not only just get to your destination and shoot but I will also do all the work. I will help you plan the entire thing if that's what you need me for. I want to make this process as easy & stress free for you as possible. All you have to do is show up & let me handle the rest!
Having traveled to many sought after destinations, I can give you all the knowledge & resources that I have gained about the place and what it takes to get married there. You will get a destination wedding checklist from me that will help you figure your planning timeline and help you stay on top of it. I will not only help you with the location but also find you all your vendors as well as other recommendations such as airbnbs, restaurants, things to do & a lot more.
Don't know where to get married? Don't stress!! I can totally help you find the perfect destinations. You also won't have to find all the places to take photos yourself. I will get there early & do all the location scouting so that by the time you get there and are ready, I will have found the perfect spots for us to take your photos and scoped out the best lighting situation as well.
I will help you make your timeline so that we can figure out exactly what time everything needs to happen. I have made tons of timelines for all my couples so I am a pro at it. And that way all you have to do is just send me all of the info!
Don't stress about booking my travel stuff. I can take care of that on my own. You don't need another thing to be added to your list. I do it this way so that I can make sure I get to our destination ahead of time to scout and find the best times as well. And so that I can find my accomodation that is close to our meeting and shooting place to avoid spending a ton of time in traveling back and forth from the hotel.
I have traveled to many places & continue to explore more everyday and photograph memories for lovers just like you. I have traveled to places I could have only dreamed about and places I didn't even know existed or people traveled to. But there are many more on my list that I would love to go to, so I have made a bucket list of all my locations. If you book me at any of these places, you get 25% off your package!! Now that's a FREAKIN STEAL!! There are also many more that are not on the list, so if you don't see your location there, definitely reach out and let's make it happen!

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.
"Ruzin is absolutely amazing."
- 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!"
