Photography is a massive part of your day! Both during and after by enjoying those memories for decades to come. To achieve those beautiful photos, first, you must be comfortable in front of my camera. I am a photographer, and I still get awkward when someone takes my picture. Being in front of a camera is intimidating, and I know that my most favorite photos of my family and I are the ones where we have been comfortable and ourselves, and had fun doing it! That is what the Ruby Sandoval Experience is all about. It is about relaxing and enjoying your wedding day and having a blast doing it. All while not having to worry about photos because my couples know that they can trust me to give them a luxury experience, unlike any other.
You know marriage is about so much more than the wedding. You're building a life together, not just a fancy party.
You're not just looking for an Instagram-able picture... You want to create family heirlooms for your children, grandkids, great-grandkids, and so on...
Your wedding is going to be a PARTY! When the reception comes, you'll be ready to let your hair down, kick off your shoes and celebrate!
As your wedding day approaches, I will be available to help with anything you might need. Vendor recommendations, timeline preparation and more. When we are just a few weeks out, we will plan a Skype chat to finalize timelines and answer any last-minute questions. That way, you can wake up on your wedding day entirely stress free and ready to marry the love of your life!
It's finally here! My goal and promise to you on your wedding day is to ensure that it is as fun and stress-free as possible. I will be there to capture every moment from beginning to end so that you have memories to last an entire lifetime.
After your wedding day is over, we will Skype chat again to unveil your beautiful online gallery! Here you can download, share, and order prints, canvases, parent's albums, etc. You are encouraged to invite your family, sit down with a glass of wine, and enjoy reliving your wedding day through your pictures.
If you decide to create a family heirloom album (and you definitely should), we will begin the design process. We will work together to create beautifully designed spreads, choose cover options and finalize details for your heirloom before it’s printed and shipped directly to you.
After working together and finding the perfect locations, we will spend 1.5 hours together shooting your engagement session. You have ONE job: love each other and be yourself! (I guess that makes it two jobs.) I will guide you the entire time and you'll be feeling like a pro in no time. This is also a time for us to get to know one another, get comfortable working together and allows YOU to spend time together in front of the camera with no stress! I recommend my couples going out for dinner right after ;)
Upon inquiry, you will receive my pricing guide with all of the details you need to know about the collections. You will also schedule a phone call for us to chat, get to know each other and that allows time for you to ask any questions you might have! Once things are booked and we're officially official, we will begin planning your engagement shoot! You will also receive a style guide with helpful tips on what to wear and how to prep for this fun shoot!

In November 2019, I attended a photographers conference called ShowIt United. I had the opportunity to attend Tina's Citrus Inspired Styled Shoot and the entire team knocked it out of the park! The colors were just gorgeous and everything came together gorgeously. Take a look for yourself and enjoy!

This engagement session was so much fun! Mary and Richie are getting married next year down in Mexico! Even though I do not get to capture their beautiful day, I was so thrilled to photograph their engagement session this past weekend! Mary & Richy were so easy to work with.We drove to Phoenix’s Desert Botanical Garden, and although it was insanely hot, it was worth it!

It was a beautiful day for a hike. Andy and Rob like to hike on Saturday's at Sabino Canyon. They have a specific spot they like to hike to and call it their own. Little did Andy know that on this particular day she was going to be asked a question that would forever change her life!

Yes! I love engagement sessions! Not only will you get beautiful images and create some new memories together, but you will also have the chance to see me in action. Plus, you'll get comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day. It is a great opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to ask me questions about your big day! Not to mention, *c'est gratuit!
Your date is locked in when I have a signed contract and a $500 (currently $300 due to Covid-19) non-refundable retainer. Please understand that I cannot hold a date through email inquiry. Dates are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Yes! I offer a variety of albums, keepsake boxes for loose prints, and canvases. Albums are custom designed to be unique to you and printed on the most beautiful quality paper by a professional lab so that you can enjoy your album for generations.
No! Consider me your wedding day bff. You will have my complete focus and attention for the entire week. That's right, your wedding will be my only wedding that entire weekend.
I aim to capture timeless images that are festive, romantic, and timeless. I try to blend together natural moments that unfold during a wedding day while also styling and posing for more traditional images.
I'm located in Tucson, Arizona, but I love to travel and I have my passport ready to go. If there's a Starbucks, I'm there!

"Words can not describe how amazing of a photographer Ruby is! She is professional and very accommodating to work schedules. ... I was blown away by my wedding photos and her ability to capture little priceless moments. Ruby was a dream to work with and a really fun person to be around. I really wanted a photographer who could capture the candid moments, because I think those are really fun pictures to look back at. Ruby managed to do that and much more!"

Ruby was amazing! My proposal was in a trail at Sabino Canyon and she was awesome and scouted out the location I wanted to do it so that she could find the best spot to take pictures of my proposal. Ruby sent pictures of locations and a video that walked me through what to do so that we can get the best shot. She not only made the process easy but also took great pictures. Thanks again Ruby!

"I can't tell you how happy I am with these photos. They are truly stunning! I was in tears when I saw them. The day was such a whirlwind for me, and when I saw the pictures, I got tears in my eyes. I am so happy that I hired Ruby because now the wedding day feels more complete to me and I can see it with a full perspective. Thank you so much. I would recommend Ruby to anybody!"
