About Andrea Rugg
Andrea Rugg is a commercial photographer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota specializing in architectural photography – interiors, exteriors, landscape, gardens and product. With over 25 years in the photo industry and a background in the fine arts, Andrea brings a high level of creativity and an ability to capture the beauty in the most functional and utilitarian forms.

Andrea attributes her passion for travel and experiencing other cultures to being born in Germany, where her father worked for the U.S. State Department. In addition to her studies in photography and the arts, she also played music – including a stint playing guitar in a band with her long-time flame and partner, Mark. When she’s not shooting, Andrea loves walking Boris, the oversized German shepherd, playing soccer, tennis, golf, and bicycling (a means of transportation as well as a sport). She also has some great stories about crossing the country on her old motorcycle.

Andrea works in the Minneapolis area and on location around the globe. She has photographed numerous award-winning designs for her clients and has been published both nationally and internationally in books, magazines, and advertising.

I have had the pleasure of working with Andrea Rugg Photography for the photography for several of my design projects through Casa Verde Design and it has always been a great experience.

Andrea and I share a wonderful collaboration and she is always willing to go the extra mile to make certain we get the right shots. I believe her beautiful photography has assisted me in winning many design awards!

I hold Andrea’s talent, abilities and the quality of her work with the highest regard. I appreciate her professionalism but also enjoy her always calm and easy demeanor. I consider her work to be a great value and an asset to my design business.

I would highly recommend Andrea and I look forward to continuing my relationship with her!
