The Most Important Day of

Your Life

CAPTURED WITH STYLE AND GRACE

Your day deserves a touch of luxury and grace in every single detail, and photography is no exception. I’ve been shooting weddings long enough to know how important every moment is – a soft hand on a shoulder, a fleeting glimpse down the aisle, a laugh that turns to tears of joy. Each detail will live on through the photos from your day and bring you back to the most beautiful day of your lives.

I’m so excited you’ve stopped by and I hope you’ll explore the galleries and photos I have featured here! Each wedding, family, engagement, and portrait session holds a special place in my heart. I truly love capturing feeling and love in my photos – and when I get to meet people and learn their stories, it’s really the most wonderful thing in the world.

Looking for a photographer in Terre Haute, Indianopolis, or Evansville? This is where you’ll find me!

Shillawna does amazing work. I have been able to work with her on weddings, photo shoots, and she has photographed my own family. She is professional, organized, and has amazing attention to detail. I highly recommend her!

Somehow I have been lucky enough to have Shillawna photograph my work on more than one occasion. I participated in a few styled shoots she was photographing, and she has also photographed many of my clients weddings. Since I am a stationery artist, there is a lot of fine detail that is hard to capture in a two dimensional photo, but Shillawna never disappoints! Her calming energy is perfectly suited for a hectic wedding day, and her level of photography will allow any client to rest easy knowing the perfect moments were documented!

Shillawna has exceeded our expectations when it comes to family portrait sessions over the multiple years! It has been a privilege to have her capture our most candid moments, while using her artistic talents to portray our personalities and inner self through the camera lens. Giving us the direct guidance and prompting to ensure that we represent our true selves is one of Shillawna's greatest strengths, for which results in cherished photo memories that last a lifetime.

I have engaged Shillawna Ruffner for our family’s photography needs for over 7 years. During that time she has done 4 family sessions, a birth/newborn session, a baby shower, and even sessions including our horses. Try keeping teenagers and horses happy and photogenic for their photos! Shillawna is absolutely fantastic with all the subjects I have thrown at her. Her eye for light, unique shots, and style are spot on. I look forward to booking weddings with her as said teenagers grow up (in the distant future 😉) Highly recommended!

From the engagement session to our wedding day, Shillawna captured every detail perfectly. She helped create a timeline of our day to help capture all the perfect pictures. Our photos turned out so beautiful & we get so many compliments on them. The turn around time was phenomenal. She helped create a beautiful album that captured bits & pieces of our day. We still rave about Shillawna and highly recommend her to anyone getting married!!

Not only is Shillawna’s work absolutely stunning, she is one of the most organized photographers I know! Her attention to detail is amazing! As a wedding planner, I work very closely with my photography service providers to make sure the day goes as smooth as possible, and it always does with Shillawna! I highly recommend her photography services! 💜

I'm so grateful for Shillawna Ruffner Photography! She has photographed my family and has photographed business head shots for me. Both experiences were so amazing. My family loves being photographed by Shillawna. She's energetic, upbeat, personable and so much fun to be around. She's also an amazing photographer. I highly recommend her for weddings, families, seniors and head shots!!
