Who We Are
Welcome to Taken by Raven!
My name is Claudia Ruiz, and I am the lead photographer for our company. Taken by Raven is a family company based in Somerset NJ. Here's a little bit of our story.
I've always loved photography, and understood the importance of documenting life with pictures. My grandmother and I would spend hours looking at pictures in photo albums, and this enhanced my love of storytelling through photos.
With the help and support of my husband and children, as well as family and friends, I decided to take the leap into professional photography.
I started as a children and family photographer, but when my husband and children decided to join me as photographers/ videographers, we became a team! now we are dedicated to event photography, a field we absolutely love! It is exciting and we love the challenge!
Our team consists of my husband as second shooter/ director of videography, my 2 children as videographers and more recently my brother in law as assistant for video and photography.
With over 8 years of combined experience, we are professionals who care deeply about our craft. Whether it’s a small event, Quinceanera/ Sweet 16 or Wedding, we have the skills and experience to give you an unforgettable experience, and capture life's fleeting moments to make them your most precious memories.
We are booking for the upcoming season now. Get in touch with us today to schedule a free consultation.
