    "Anne is AMAZING. I was introduced to her work by Nicole Blair of Nicole Ladonne Photography. I have since been addicted to her blog, her website, and now her flickr images. Her work is refreshing and emotional."

    "Anne's artistry and originality never ceases to inspire me. She has a killer "eye" and penchant for creating exceptionally stunning images, no doubt, but what really stands out in her work is personality. There is a remarkable connection she makes with her subjects, and In just viewing a few images of a given couple, I get such a sense of who they are. Given the extraordinary character and beauty of her work, she would certainly be entitled to a grand ego to match, but in fact, she is a class-act all around, and a selfless, generous mentor to so many of us."

    "Anne's work is inspirational. Her photographs have a life and they commence so much emotion. Anne has the ability to draw me into her subject/s so much that I feel like I know the them (or at least want to know them!) :) She has been blessed with a true gift."

    "What can I say about Anne that hasn't already been said? Anne is one of those photographers whose work makes you think to yourself, "why didn't I think of that?!". Her approach to her subjects is consistently innovative and fresh--it's impossible to get bored looking at her images.

    As if that weren't enough, she is also a funny, generous, awesome person and a admirably strong woman. She is never afraid to be herself, which is something I think most of us could use a lesson in.

    I don't think anyone can deny that she is destined for greatness."

    "I've heard the name Anne Ruthmann through the grapevine for a while now, but only recently have I actually explored her amazing world!
    I'm completely mesmerized by the way she captures people. Not just a face, but a person; complete with their feelings, interactions and emotions.
    On top of that, her beautiful colors and amazing compositions prove that she is truly a master."

    "Anne makes me smile, so I'm sure it will work for you as well - cause I'm a tough customer.

    I didn't know Anne from adam, but one day she wrote asking me for some advice - and something funny came out of it. Since then it's been fun to see her grow in her craft and her creativity; and see all the fun and funny things she makes images of. If you're in the market for a photographer, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her images or her personality."

    "I don't have enough space to write the multitude of feelings I could share about Anne. As an artist, she has such an instinct & sensitivity for people and who they really are. The photos she did for us were truly, 100%, US. And as a friend, well.... she absolutely ROCKS & I wish we lived closer together. Our friendship is one of those crazy random happenings that make life really awesome. :)"

    "anne inspires me. i don't care how cliche that sounds, it is the truth. her work is technically wonderful, but it is so accessible that it encourages you to do better yourself. i love looking at the images she creates, but more than that... i love seeing the emotions that anne saw. everything plays into them: the lighting, the angle, the processing, whether she chose color or black & white. look at her photos, read her blog - you'll be glad you did."
