    We certainly lucked out with Victoria. She's not only a wonderful photographer but extremely professional AND fun to work with . We felt completely comfortable during our shoot, she made great recommendations and got our images back to us quickly. We can't wait to work with her again in the future! Thank you Victoria!

    I've hired Victoria on two different occasions. After taking great engagement shots in DC, my soon to be wife and I flew her out to San Francisco for our wedding. It was an easy decision. We knew that the quality would be top notch and we wouldn't have to worry about a thing. As a photographer, Victoria is very talented both in terms of shooting and post processing. Engagement/wedding shots can be sort of cliche, but Victoria is creative and thoughtful, a winning combination that led to inspiring and unique photos. Victoria is easy to work with and super friendly. But shes also a professional and gets down to business when in a time crunch. She successfully corralled our large families for portraits which was no small feat. Everyone was impressed with the work, but also her ability to fly around and set up different shots. Highly recommend Victoria and I'm already looking for another excuse to hire her.

    After we decided to use VIctoria Ruan for our newborn session for our first child, Asher, she made sure the process went smoothly. From brainstorming ideas of creative poses for our sleeping newborn to getting shots that were natural of our entire family during this transitional time. She was very professional and came prepared with tools to comfort my baby. Not only was I impressed with her eye for photography, but I knew that her style was what we were looking for as well. We truly enjoyed working with Victoria Ruan and these photographs are just proof of how talented she really is and we will cherish them always.

    Victoria's train to our destination wedding was cancelled and she went to extraordinary measures to get to us (in rural Vermont). She did a fantastic job, and was a pleasure to deal with.

    Victoria is great! She creates meaningful, personalized photo shoots and is fabulous at putting people at ease. We love our photos from our daughter's first week of life--they are precious!

    Victoria is a gifted photographer and an absolute joy to work with! We hired her to do our engagement and wedding photographs. I could not be more pleased. During the engagement shoot, Victoria made us feel really comfortable and not too posed as she took beautiful photo after beautiful photo! She has a photojournalism style which comes across as high quality and artistic. Victoria was great at giving direction on the da of the wedding too, and getting people grouped in an asthtic way. She has a highly personable, friendly approach and took a lot of time getting to know us as a couple, our story, and what we were looking for. She spent the entire day with us and captured such wonderful memories. I can't wait to hire her again for the next big event!
