If I had three words to describe my experience with Ruben Photography it would be flexible, creative, and talented. I reached out to Ruben after a previous photograph had to cancel with only 2 weeks left before the wedding. I was worried because of the short time frame and I thought it would be hard to find a photograph familiar with civil ceremony experience. That is when I found Ruben.From the start he was very responsive and since we didn't have the time to meet up we hashed out all of the details via email. Ruben was very open to all of my ideas and gave his creative feedback based on what I had in mind. He was very flexible as I made countless changes in the 2 week period that we had been working together. On the day off Ruben was fantastic. He was capturing moments that I would never have thought of and at every location he would see opportunities that would create magical photos. Simply put, if you are reading this review and thinking of working with Ruben just do it.

This is the worst photographer you can ever hire for a simple engagement photoshoot. I worked with him on engagement pictures to test and see whether his work online on his website really matches up to what he does in reality.
He is so fake, please girls I would ask you to beware of vendors like him, he is so fake. He literally showed me model pictures online and asked me and my fiance to model like that. So unoriginal.
When you first visit his website you will blown by his work, I now wonder whether what he posted was really his work or not. He did not even edit the pictures he took, he only says that he will edit six or seven out of 200 pictures he clicks. and when he edits he only adds some blackish tinges to the image and emails it back to you.
The fellow will barely talk and is pure trash. I was not upset at his work but furious, he is the first photographer who will do his best to click your most unflattering angles- closed eyes, fake postures, awkward smiles and double chin and other other disastrous photographs.

This is NOT a valid review because I never worked for this couple. I have no idea who they are, simply, because they are NOT mentioning any names or the date if they ever use a photographer. "fake review".
