I am the creative behind Elizebeth Unruh Studio. Located in the gorgeous town of Cape May New Jersey, I photograph human connections.  Being a Cape May Local is a huge part of my heart and I love incorporating that in my business. Ive been an artist my whole life. Ive spent the majority of my time creating art, writing poetry, taking pictures of my friends and family.  My passion for photography started at the age of 16 when I was handed my first 35mm camera.


My journey began in highschool when my father gave me his old 35mm camera. I quickly fell in love with film and decided to pursue fine art in college. The darkroom was where I truly found my inner peace. I love the slow process, the smell of developer, the suspense. I loved that my photos were created with light and was born in the dark.  It gives me pride to offer photography that my clients can feel. Photography is emotional and there is no one on the planet who understands this more than me.

Photography runs much deeper than shoot and click

Its the moments we keep forever, even when forever is not promised. I strive deliver a customized wedding exerperience for every couple we work with. Because no two weddings are alike! The dream is now going seven years strong and I wake up everyday thankful to be in my own shoes. I say often, when you do what you love it radiates through you!  Thats the energy i look for between frames. Love is what brings us all together, and we have heart in that.

If you’re not hiring Liz as your photographer for your wedding, engagement shoot, mini shoot, pregnancy shoot, or any shoot, you’re doing it wrong. SHE IS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. Honestly, that to me doesn’t even cover it!!! The most fun, creative, talented, passionate, and professional person I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. I used Liz for my engagement shoot, bridal boudoir and my wedding. Every single picture is literally stunning. Every single shoot was so freaking fun- I was sad when they were over. Liz’ personality makes anyone feel comfortable behind a camera. She is extremely dedicated to her clients – we happened to be one of her COVID couples and had to cancel/reschedule our wedding but Liz stuck by our side every step of the way. She bent over backwards for us to make sure our new wedding day was set. She gives sneak peeks(which literally blew me away every time and had me wanting more) & provides all your photos in a timely manner. I have gotten SO many compliments on our photos and asked who our photographer was and I’m always SO proud to flaunt her stuff (literally obsessed over her work). I cannot wait to continue to work with her. LADIES & GENTS, YOU WANT THIS PHOTOGRAPHER- trust me. It seriously doesn’t get better than her.


I hired Liz from Have Heart Photography to capture our beach proposal in Cape May. She did an amazing job! She was able to capture every moment and tell a story with her photos. Her editing style is perfect for the beach and gives a gorgeous light and airy look. I’d recommend 100%
