  • We recently got our wedding album from Rueben and I can't stop looking at the photos! They came out so nice and it's so awesome that we'll have these beautiful photos to look back on. Rueben was super easy to work with from day one. He helped answer all of my questions (at times I was a frantic covid bride), he was very patient and flexible throughout the process. When Wedding Day finally arrived, Rueben was punctual and very organized. He had all the shot locations planned out ahead of time, it made things for the wedding party really easy! I don't consider myself to be very photogenic, but Rueben really helped me relax and most importantly made it FUN! Our wedding party gave us many compliments on how great Rueben and his assistant, Amanda, were to work with! Definitely don't hesitate to use Loose Tie Photography for your wedding or special event!!

  • It was such a pleasure to work with Rueben and Amanda! We hired them for our wedding. They've been very professional. We met with them before the event, and discussed our preferences. We asked for advice where we can take pictures with the ocean, and they eventually took us to a beautiful place on our day! The guys were flexible with our schedule and ensured we didn't miss anything on our wedding, and, at the same time, had plenty of great pictures. Also, wanted to note that Rueben was very responsive over messaging and addressed all my questions and concerns. We now have amazing photos and all our great memories are safe! Thank you so much Rueben and Amanda!!!

  • Rueben is absolutely amazing. He is so kind and professional. The pictures came out beautifully and he got them to us so quickly! He makes things super simple (especially during family photos with lots of kids and babies!) and is very detail oriented. We will love looking at these pictures forever. Thank you Rueben!

  • Rueben and his team are phenomenal! His work caught our attention because of his attention to detail and how he incorporates nature in his pictures. He completed our engagement photoshoot and captured our wedding day. We really appreciated his flexibility in working with our schedule. We were planning our wedding out-of-state but he was very open to finding time for our engagement photoshoot when we were in CA for the holidays. During our engagement photoshoot, he was so energetic and approachable making our photoshoot very comfortable and enjoyable. By our wedding day, we knew what we needed to do and made our day much smoother. We are so happy we found Rueben!

  • Rueben exceeded our expectations and captured our day perfectly . We didn’t have to explain what we wanted our video to look like, he just got a feel for who we are as a couple and took it from there. The video is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives . If you are considering hiring a videographer look no further , do yourself a favor and book Rueben today. Thank you Rueben !!!!

  • We could not have asked for a better photographer to capture our engagement photos and wedding day! Rueben is so easy to work with, very professional and each day we worked with him was so light and fun and did not feel forced at all! He was always available to answer any questions I had. I suggest him to everyone I know and I cannot wait to book with him in the future!

  • We loved working with Rueben so much that I'm leaving him five star ratings wherever I find his business. The pictures turned out amazing, he had such a fast turn around time, and he was really fun to work with.

  • He was very well prepared - from our first meeting to our site visit and wedding day. We had a site visit before our wedding date to talk about different photo opportunities and he worked with us to create out timeline. He was flexible and very easy to work with, which removed any unnecessary stress. He was very efficient, which meant we spent minimal time gather people for our photos and spent more time taking amazing photos. Working with Rueben was amazing and we were extremely pleased with his photos!

  • Rueben was the photographer for our wedding. He is friendly, upbeat, energetic, and professional. We planned a winter wedding in 3 months or less, and he was very flexible and supportive. He did a good job of organizing windows of opportunity to get the photos we wanted from each part of the event. He worked and socialized well with the site director and our guests, and helped our special day run more smoothly. He is a great photographer. All of our photos were great quality, with nice poses and candid moments. He also captures backlit photos, indoor photos, and photos when it is dark out very well - this was important because our reception was indoors just after sunset. He is a very skilled and experienced photographer who offers a very competitive price, and is dependable, fun, friendly and approachable. We are so happye we met him, and hope he is free to document your wedding too!

  • Rueben went above and beyond for us. The epitome of professionalism, Rueben and his team were practically invisible on our wedding day yet seemed to capture so many incredibly intimate moments. We could not have chosen a better vendor for our video/photo needs!

  • I own an event planning business (A STARR Events) in the Monterey Bay area and I have used Rueben's Photography services for my Clients, Friends & Family events. It is my experience in this industry when you find a vendor who shows up on time, works hard all day (and our days are long), always has a smile on his face, captures every shot, keeps my clients happy and returns my calls quickly- Need I say more? Rueben has spirit, dedication, personality, and a great team. You get what you pay for...and Rueben at Loose Tie Photography is the first one I call when I need a professional photographer. Visit his website and look at his portfolio- I promise you will call him to capture all your family memories for years to come!

  • After discovering Loose Tie Photography on WeddingWire and seeing some of Rueben's posts on his Instagram account we were hoping him and his team would be available for our big day! We got engaged and found a venue all under a year's time and we knew we had to act quick. Thankfully, the team was available. Rueben had another wedding to shoot that day but he set us up with Ashley who was absolutely amazing. They came out for a site visit a month before the big day to check out lighting and photo settings. The day of the wedding they were punctual and worked their butts off trying to get all the good shots with the sunlight we had left! What was awesome was that they weren't in our faces and moved around the outdoor space and dance floor with grace and ease that almost made them feel like they were guests at our wedding. The final product was amazing! Super happy with our photos. The only somewhat negative (hence the 4 stars) was the Videography. Since my grandmother couldn't be there fo... Read more

  • We got married 2.5 years ago it was amazing, however Rueben promised us a wedding album and we never got it. Also, our wedding video is down from Vimeo. The link no longer works. They are very hard to get a hold of after the wedding.
