About Taken by Raven


About Me

Welcome to Taken by Raven! 

A one of a kind experience awaits you! 

My name is Claudia Ruiz (Also known as Raven), and I am the lead photographer at Taken by Raven. We are 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 (My second shooter!) and children, as well as family and friends, I decided to take the leap into professional photography. It has been a fascinating journey!

We specialize in Quinceanera, and family photography. It is our great pleasure to uncover your beauty and soul. We love to capture your smiles, your interactions and present them to you with our finest prints, luxurious albums, and high quality digital photos. Most of all, we love to provide you with an extraordinary and fun experience.  

 Your experience will start with a meeting at my studio. Our first meeting is important because it will help us get our ideas together and to make your vision into a reality. It is also very important for us to meet a few times before your event, this way we can get to know each other and you will feel comfortable with me and my team on the day of your session/event. 

Whether it’s a small event, Quinceanera/ Sweet 16 or Wedding, or a photo session, I have the skills and experience to capture life's fleeting moments and make them your most precious memories.

I am booking for the upcoming season now. Get in touch with us today to schedule a free consultation.
