Dawn + Mark | Art Gallery & Brunch Wedding in Fort Wayne, IN

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

When I first met with Mark & Dawn they told me that they wanted their wedding day to be a celebration of their marriage with their close friends and family, and it was very much that. They chose to have their wedding at the Wunderkammer gallery where Dawn was a board member before she moved. Their brunch reception wouldn't have been complete without the mimosa & bloody mary bar of course! It was a beautiful morning celebrating their love and commitment to one another and I was honored to document it. 

P.S. How cute are their fur babies aka flower girl and ring bearer.?! 

Rachel + Jordan | Engagement Photography in Old Town Chicago, IL

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

She is from Texas and He is from Connecticut , and they call Chicago home. Earlier this summer I photographed their engagement session in their neighborhood and get to know them better. What I enjoy most about engagement sessions is the chance to get to know each couple better and it allows them to feel more comfortable with me on the wedding day (since I pretty much follow you everywhere except the bathroom). If you have the opportunity to do an engagement shoot, definitely take it! I promise I'll make it fun. 

Here are a few favorites from Rachel & Jordan's shoot and I can't wait for their wedding on the East Coast in a few short weeks!


Noelle | Fort Wayne, IN Botanical Conservatory Lifestyle

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

Noelle and I seem to have a tradition of going to a botanical conservatory every so often when we get together. We spent the afternoon catching up where we had left off over tacos and then explore my city of Fort Wayne, IN. 

Here are a few of my favorites of this beautiful soul. You can see the lovely photos she look of me on her blog.  



Cassie | Maternity Portrait Photography in Fort Wayne, IN

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

So funny story....A few hours after this shoot was finished Cassie’s water broke, and little Rosie made her grand entrance later that night. Cassie had told me that she thought she would be early and I told her that she just had to wait until after I did her shoot. I guess it was taken quite literally! They are both doing great and Rosie has the best family! 

I had a lot of fun planning this shoot and I defiantly took some inspiration from the queen herself (Beyonce), but with my own style of course. Cassie looked so beautiful and who knew it would be her last few hours being pregnant. 

Boston | Personal Photography

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

Boston will always have a piece of my heart and be my home away from home ( that can be said for New England in general). I moved to Massachusetts when I was 21 and lived there for about 3 years. That time in my life was when I really grew a lot as an individual and had the chance to figure out who I was and I what I really enjoyed. I was really happy that after Nate had visited when we were dating, that he fell in love with New England too. 

This past weekend Nate took me there for my 30th birthday, and it was such a great time. We walked 40 miles, spent time with old friends and soaked up the charm of my favorite city in the country. The majority of the photos below are of the Beacon Hill neighborhood (both of our favorites). If you haven't been and ever get the chance, go visit!

Brady + Nicole | An Evening Love Session in Indianapolis, IN

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

Brady & Nicole are both very talented creatives who make up the duo of Native Supply Co. They're both designers and photographers as well. It was the perfect evening exploring the city and getting to know them. They're such a sweet and genuine couple, who love to travel and go on adventures whenever they can. I left this shoot feeling so energized and inspired, which is one of the best feelings in my book. 

Chris + April | Downtown Love Session in Fort Wayne, IN

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

Where do I begin with these two? April is an ELL Teacher with FWCS and when I moved back to Fort Wayne, I was her assistant for a year. She is the most vivacious, caring, hilarious person I have met, and I feel quite lucky to call her a friend. Every time I have the pleasure to be around Chris and April, I'm guaranteed to laugh so hard I feel like I better have a six pack. They're such a fantastic couple, and I was so thrilled to photograph them a couple weeks ago. They were so much fun and I'm so excited to share a few of my favorites. 

 Seriously, you don't need to be engaged to have photos taken with your partner! 


Rhys + Rachel | Downtown Engagement Photography in Fort Wayne, IN

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

When I first met with Rhys & Rachel I knew we'd hit it off, not only because they're genuinely hilarious or just themselves , but also because they have corgis ( I just recently became dog parent to a corgi puppy named Fern). They're such a fun couple, and I feel lucky to know them.

We met downtown for their engagement shoot on an overcast spring evening. There was lots of laughing, some dancing and of course taking some photos with their fur babies.
