We're Georgia & Ted! A husband and wife fine art wedding photography team based in Salem, Oregon. When we're not capturing your beautiful wedding day, you can find us exploring this gorgeous corner of the world (most likely with camera in hand), curled up on the couch binge watching Great British Bake Off or Gilmore Girls for the millionth time, or having a dance party in the living room with our three year old.

All of our wedding collections include two photographers because we're kind of a package deal. ;)

YOU'VE HEARD GEORGIA MENTION ME here and there, but there’s more to the story. I’m an Oregon native who’s lived in a few different places and, sure enough, nothing has beat Oregon so far. I spent the first half of my childhood in rural Marion County, so it’s no wonder why I first photographed landscapes and monuments!

The Tulip Festival in Woodburn, hop fields in Hubbard, and the vast farms scattered throughout taught me to appreciate nature and slowing down to enjoy a quiet hike or a long day spent smoking something on the grill until it’s perfect.

When I’m not photographing weddings with Georgia, I can often be found writing for my Libertarian economics blog, developing political campaign strategies, or finding new barbecue recipes to try.

I'M A HOPELESS ROMANTIC, FOREVER nostalgic for places and moments I haven't yet experienced. This business started as a tiny seed inside my heart, and I'm so glad I get to share it with Ted.

I’m the main photographer and I run all the client communications, our social media, and most of the behind the scenes. Ted joins me on wedding days to capture your love story in two perspectives, and helps out with the behind the scenes tasks.

When I’m not toting around cameras and capturing your sweet love, I enjoy Extra Dark Lindor Truffles (and I’m a firm believer that white chocolate is not real chocolate), listening to business podcasts (or any with a good story - if you have a favorite, let me know), and filling our home with succulents and small house plants that can survive our dark PNW winters and my bad habit of under watering.

In the most non-cheesy sense of that phrase.

We love celebrating and documenting this incredible choice to walk through life with that special person. When I started this business I was originally drawn to weddings because I’m a hopeless romantic and weddings are beautiful, grand, romantic events. But while photographing weddings alongside Ted, I fell in love with the privilege we have of telling each unique love story — preserving those feelings and memories that brought two people together. I fell in love with celebrating marriages and creating wedding photography that reminds you that your wedding is only the beginning of something even more incredible.

Simply put, we love love.

Why weddings?

For the past three years Ted has worked to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Oregon, all while working part time with me to photograph weddings. When he graduated in June we made the leap to move to Salem, OR and we’re excited to see where this new stage of life takes us!

June 2018 – Georgia Ruth Photography moves to Salem

When we moved back to Oregon in the summer of 2015 I started working on this business full time and announced to Ted that he had been promoted from Assistant to Second Photographer.

I wish I could say I taught Ted everything he knows, but he grew up taking photos on his mom’s old Canon AE-1, so he’s had a love of photography for even longer than I have!

august 2015 – georgia ruth photography is official!

January 2015 – Then comes baby

december 2013 – then comes marriage

Two years into my photography journey, I met Ted. We got married a year later, and a year after that we welcomed our daughter to the world. By the time Macy was born, Ted was coming along to assist all my sessions and even a few weddings.

December 2012 – First Comes Love

december 2011 – First wedding photographed!

I was sitting in an orientation meeting on my first day of college. I was listening to what the next four years of Early Childhood Education had in store for me and as they went over the courses and expectations, I found myself dreading it.

On a whim, and with the encouragement of some friends, I changed my major to art, signed up for my first photography class, and never looked back!

September 2010 – it all started when

Well, that’s a pretty long story involving my almost lifelong yearning to learn photography, and the many obstacles that kept me from it. But to sum it up shortly... when I finally got my hands on a camera of my own, it was a pretty instant love.

So how did we get to here? 

"We believe in leaving a bit of our soul in every photo we take – our own unique perspective of your love story – and we feel so honored to share that with you."
