Ruby is incredible! Not only does she come up with the most magical, mesmerising and beautifully creative ideas, she executes them perfectly. I’ve hired Ruby several times now and can honestly say that she brings my ideas to life in ways which I had never even contemplated. She will meticulously research and plan a shoot and all the extra details that go along with it to make sure everything is perfect for you. She will put you at ease and discuss every aspect and detail of the shoot with you to make sure you’re happy with everything before going ahead. I’m constantly blown away by her talent and skill. I will continue to work with Ruby for as long as she’ll have me!
Highly recommend Ruby, her attention to detail, ability to create magical shots and her enthusiasm is what sets her apart from other photographers. Look forward to shooting with her in the near future!
I booked a shoot with Ruby after following her on Instagram for a year or so. I’m not a model, I just like dressing up and interesting photos.
What I liked about Ruby’s photography was the colours and drama. Many of the images seemed to me like authentic dark fairy tales which is different to other shoots I have done before and wanted to be part of that.
Before the shoot Ruby asked what I wanted and for mood board suggestions. One thing I said I would like were smoke bombs!
Ruby then scouted out locations, fallen down trees, a viaduct to make my shoot unique to me. She brought along props such as a mirror, a candlestick - and the smoke bombs!
She suggested poses and took time to get several different angles etc. She didn’t seem hurried which was good.
When I got the photos back the first thing my daughter said was ‘they are very Ruby Hyde!’ When I see photographer’s work I always take into account that I am not a model so my poses and expressions may not be perfect but I always hope the end result will look like the artwork that they produce for themselves or others. This is exactly what Ruby delivered: atmospheric shots with intriguing lighting and colours highlighted and accented.
I would hope to see Ruby again and that I believe is the best recommendation.
