  • Working with Rueben was great. He is very professional, puts you at ease, and makes everything seem effortless. I’m over the moon happy with my photos and honestly couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to capture our day.

  • Rueben is extremely talented. He's also super creative. (Less of the boring "been there, done that" stuff you see all over). We love the moments he grasped on our special day. We highly recommend using him! Especially if you're in the Monterey area - since he knows many of the beautiful backdrop locations to really make your photos go that extra step. He's also been doing this long enough to give you wedding coordinator/music/DJ suggestions as well - believe us you should take it! It'd make the day run smoother if your vendors all know and love working with each other!

  • Reuben was amazing to work with for our wedding. He totally understood our vision before we did and was really able to translate our personalities into our pictures. Six months after our wedding, my husband and I look back at our pictures regularly because they perfectly encapsulate what an amazing and fun day we had!

  • I can't say enough about how wonderful Rueben is! My husband and I are extremely awkward in front of a camera and Rueben managed to make us comfortable... not to mention his creativity when it comes to the right shots is OUTSTANDING. We used Loose Tie for both our engagement and wedding photos and it was FIVE STAR SERVICE AND PRODUCT!

  • I chose Rueben for the engagement photos because he knows how to truly capture the beauty between loved ones. He truly has an eye for magic moments. I am a nervous perfectionist and was anxiously searching for someone who I felt could meet my standards. The whole experience from beginning to end flowed so well. Rueben knew what I was looking for as we spoke before hand and made me feel so comfortable. When time came to take the photos he was so fun and easy going. I really felt good about the experience. Finally the best part was seeing the final product. The series of photographs are so fresh and beautiful. Rueben creates a unique set of photos for each client. This is why he is amazing!

  • My husband & I hired Loose Tie Photography for our Engagement Shoot and Wedding and we couldn't be happier! Rueben is very creative and has an unmatched attention to detail. When we first got engaged & booked LTP, we went to lunch with Rueben. He took the time to get to know us better so he could better capture our personalities in all our pictures. Rueben and his team were on time, professional, captured everything I requested and then some, and worked very well with my Videography Team to be out of each other's shots. What I love most about our photos is the love pouring through them.. As we were looking through all the pictures, we were blown away. Just truly beautiful work. You can tell how passionate Rueben is not only about his work, but making others just as passionate about their day and capturing their happiness! From One Newly Wed to any Soon-to-be-Newlyweds: book extra time! Your flowers you keep will never look the same, you'll end up with a couple days of left over cat... Read more

  • We are so happy that we chose Rueben to be our wedding photographer! We were initially drawn to his portfolio because of his attention to small details. The way he focuses on specific aspects of the wedding as well as capturing the large scale photos made us feel like he would be able to document our day the way we wanted. Rueben was really quick to respond to our inquiry and answer all our questions. He was really flexible and truly wanted to make our day special for us. When the wedding day finally arrived, Rueben and his assistants were wonderful at keeping the mood light and kept us from taking ourselves too seriously. We had multiple guests and family members comment on how non-intrusive and fun the photographers were. We felt like he captured all the big moments and many of the small details, some of which i didn't even notice while the wedding was happening! The photos turned out absolutely beautiful, we could not have been happier with them. Every time we look at our stunning p... Read more

  • Reuben and his assistant came to our home and also went to our wedding venue to take engagement pictures. He has a great sense of humor that really put us at ease, and took a bunch of different kinds of photos in different settings around our house and at the venue. He has some nice, really expensive looking equipment that resulted in great, professional photos. I'm kind of a hobby photographer and I was highly impressed with (and jealous of) his skill. It was very apparent that he knows a lot about lighting and setting up the pictures to make us look great, which we appreciated. It was also interesting the way he was able to take advantage of different elements of our yard and the forest/coastal venue setting to give us several different "looks" for our photos. He even took some with our dogs, which required a lot of patience (they're a pain in the ass to photograph.) Overall, I would highly recommend Reuben and Loose Tie Photography. We weren't looking forward to having our pi... Read more

  • We were planning a Monterey destination wedding so we didn't have a chance to really interview a lot of vendors before choosing one. We did our photography research online and loved Rueben's style immediately. We only met him one time before the wedding, but as soon as we started talking with him, we knew we chose the right person for the job. He was even willing to take a few test shots of my fiancee during our first meeting just to give us a sense of his style and quality! Rueben was very responsive during the months prior to the wedding. When the weekend finally came, Rueben and his assistant Jenn were prompt and super flexible with our requests. We had a great time shooting post-wedding personal shots with them all around the Monterey wharf area! Rueben and Jenn were so friendly and made the experience a lot of fun for us. We really appreciated Rueben's attention to detail and the fact that he wanted to take photos in a different way than he's shot them in the past. ... Read more

  • We could not have chosen a better photographer for our big day! We saw Rueben's portfolio online and were extremely interested in meeting him. He was quick to respond to our request, and soon after we met I knew we would choose him. He is warm, friendly and has a great sense of humor. It’s obvious he truly loves his work and takes pride in doing something that makes people happy. We really appreciated that he took time to talk with us and get an idea of who we are. We were also really impressed with his knowledge (this guy really knows his stuff!) On the day itself, we had Rueben from start to finish. Having him there really made the day extra special. He helped make sure everything ran smoothly, he was very easy to take photos with, and always put everyone at ease- either with encouraging words or teasing jokes. I never thought I would have so much fun taking photos! He captured the whole wedding beautifully! I couldn’t believe how many amazing shots there were! I was af... Read more

  • Rueben is AWESOME!!! He is great to work with, talented and will capture all the best moments and details of your event. I had the pleasure of being Rueb's first wedding in 2013. We got married at Pasadera Country Club (now Nicklaus Club) and I was so excited to see the final product. The pictures looked phenomenal. I have a HUGE family and he somehow was able to capture everyone at least once throughout the night. The detail shots were some of my favorite. I can't wait to re-create a shot of our dresses hanging by the window when my best friend (then MOH) gets married this summer. We've remained great friends with Rueben since our wedding, that is the type of personality Reuben has just a friendly, energetic, all around nice guy!
