Reno & Tahoe Wedding Videography & Fine Portraits - Amber Shore Pictures


Hi, I'm Ruta. I think I might be the only Ruta in Reno. Odd name you may think. Well, it may be different here but it's quite common in Lithuania, the land of raw beauty, stormy Baltic sea and winters that last over 9 months of the year. And why did I leave? Well, for the sense of adventure, freedom, and, of course, the American Dream. I feel blessed to create beautiful imagery of nature that surrounds us, make portraits and family films for people to enjoy over generations. To me life is art and expression through images is my passion.


I believe in families.

I believe that being a wedding photographer and videographer requires more skill than having a nice camera. I believe in a craft and I study it continuously to leave my customers with the best images and films. These are carefully crafted pieces of art, that will be out there for families to enjoy over generations.

I believe that every couple and every family is unique. I want to meet you and get to know you before your wedding, feel your personalities, your pet peeves and desires so I can create the most engaging, true, and heartfelt memories of your special day. I want you to feel comfortable in front of my camera and relax, just be yourselves. True emotion always wins, it can't be repeated or acted out. This is what I fish for on your wedding day. I want your friends to watch the film and say "wow, that is so them!"

I believe that vows and toasts are most important parts of your wedding. There's nothing better than to watch your wedding vows years form now and re-live the day. See your mom and dad, your best friend or even a grandparent giving a speech and sharing life's wisdom. This is why I pay close attention to the audio and capture it the best possible sound.

I believe in little things like cake and decorations that took you so long to perfectly place together. All of it's gonna be gone the next day, but you will always have a memory of it on film.

But most of all I  believe in love and love stories and I would love to capture yours.

Love, Ruta
