Voted "Best Photographer in Richmond"
by Richmond Magazine Readers

Rutsen Eagle is a Richmond native and attended The Collegiate School.

Rutsen graduated from The Collegiate School where he studied film photography. He was recognized by the Quill and Scroll for producing unique photographs in the school's monthly periodical, The Match. Rutsen graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, specializing in Photography. VCU is proud to announce that it was recently ranked the 4th best Art School in the nation.

Eagle Eye Photography was approached by NBC to photograph the NBC12 Dream Wedding in 2006. We had such a wonderful time working with NBC and the affiliates of the Dream Wedding. To read the testimonial from Dawn Young, Director of Sales Promotions, go to our comments page.

Rutsen was recognized in 2007 and 2008 by The Pilsner Urquell International Photography Awards Competition for his works titled "The Office" and "Race the Sun.". He has been recognized for several years by the International
Society of Photographers.

"Tom Hilterbrant taught me how to shoot and David Stott demonstrated to me the effectiveness of photography in print form. It was a wild night at The Landmark Theater where I had the opportunity to photograph Widespread Panic. Dave Schools, the bassist for the band, was a Collegiate Alum and provided me with some great advice during a backstage photo shoot. He said, 'once you find inspiration, embrace it and know that you can always
get better at what you do'."

Rutsen completed his general studies at James Madison University before making the decision to pursue photography as a Major. He dreamed of owning a business dedicated to providing clients with a unique and refreshing experience and created Eagle Eye Photography.

With new skills and a positive attitude towards photography, Rutsen was eligible to serve as the first photo-intern for The Richmond Magazine. Immediately he began to develop and refine his skills. Under the aid of the Writers, Editors, and Art Directors he quickly developed an understanding of how photography would apply to the real world. An experience that would encourage him to become a local freelance photographer and small business owner. Read less

Rutsen was great to work with. He had unending energy, was really funny, and made everyone feel at ease, even during the always awkward bridal party photos. He was responsive to every request we made and the photos, WOW! Such an amazing eye for great photos. The cost was very reasonable and below many others we looked at. Thank you Rutsen!

Rutsen was the perfect choice as our wedding photographer. He showed extreme professionalism, but was also viewed by all as an extremely kind and helpful guest. Rutsen took on many more duties other than photography- he was constantly aware of the timeline and the details of the day and he helped in many ways to keep the plan of the day perfect! Because of his naturally caring and easygoing personality, my husband and I enjoyed welcoming Rutsen to the party as more than ‘the wedding photographer.’ Rutsen was able to capture all the crucial moments of the day, as well as the moments we weren’t even aware of! He caught all the intimacy in a noninvasive manner. The images he created with planned poses as well as the ones he captured covertly, illustrate our personalities, compatibility, and deep companionship perfectly. Rutsen’s talents go beyond photography and into a deeper understanding and care for his clients. He clearly understood us as a couple, rather than simply ‘another bride and groom,’ and it shows in the thousands of photos we received! Rutsen was quick to edit, post, and mail us his final products….which we could not be happier with!

Rusten was out of the box creative. Not the same old shots but respectful of the traditional ones. He was early for the wedding and was one of the calming important and even critical ingredients of the flow of the wedding. Today as we mix many generations it is really important to have a crew that goes with the flow of various families and personalities. Rusten was able to do this with a smile the entire night as he blended in for those shots to remember forever. I would highly recommend Eagle Eye Photography for not just weddings but other areas as well. I am excited about working with him with my business of Real Estate. Sylvia Diersen

Rutsen was great! I will definitely recommend him to every bride-to-be. I had looked around at several different photography options and Eagle Eye was by far the best value for the services and quality Rutsen provides. Rutsen and his assistant took so many great photos at each stage of the wedding day. They were truly able to capture the joy we felt without the photos feeling staged. We are very happy and will treasure our photos forever!

We were absolutely blown away! Eagle Eye Photography arrived and IMMEDIATELY jumped in to start capturing moments that I didn't even notice in the chaos. He even saved me from a wasp which had lodged in my up-do, camera still in hand. My family and friends are still commenting on how personable and detail-oriented Rutsen was. My husband and I are incredibly grateful that our day was captured so perfectly. He managed to take both the fun and traditional shots, and make them all exactly what we wanted. If we ever renew our vows and have another ceremony, we'll know exactly who to call. I'll recommend Eagle Eye to every bride I know!
