Ro is a storyteller who draws her inspiration from simple, revealing moments. Discovering raw, genuine, and emotionally evocative interactions between people is one of her passions. She views photographing weddings as a collaboration with her couples, and has mastered the ability to create a safe, easy, and comfortable environment for those in front of the camera. By guiding her subjects – not posing them – she is able to photograph the seen and unseen, the intimate, and the ethereal. For Ro, it is a privilege to be invited in, to watch and listen, and to capture the energy of the moment. Ro believes that images should hold much more than beauty – they should carry weight and inspire.
Ro travels worldwide for weddings. She and her husband Kenan Juska – of the critically-acclaimed radio show Chances With Wolves – enjoy their home life in Detroit, Michigan with their three wild, beautiful, and tenderhearted boys.
Ro received her BFA in photography from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit. While working with her mentor, the legendary Mary Ellen Mark, she also attended Parsons School of Design in New York City.
Ro’s photographs have been featured in VOGUE, THE NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE, HARPERS BAZAAR, BIG, CAPRICIOUS, BRIDES, OVER THE MOON, MARTHA STEWART, NEW YORK MAGAZINE, THE CUT, HOUR DETROIT, MASS APPEAL, NYLON, TOKION, and more.
