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! 

Photos taken with a Fuji x100T camera. 

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. 

Nick + Jordan | Downtown Botanical Conservatory Wedding in Fort Wayne, IN

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

Have you ever met someone and knew that you'd be friends? That's how I felt after the first time I met Jordan and then after I photographed the two of them for their engagement I know it was true. They are so sweet and it's quite evident they they just love life together. Together they have the cutest little man who's smile will melt your heart. 

Their wedding was a beautiful inimiate celebration with just their families and some close friends. During the reception Nick performed a song he wrote for Jordan and it couldn't have been sweeter.  There was no stress, no drama and you could tell they were enjoying every moment of their day.  I truly believe that is how weddings should be and it couldn't have been more perfect.

Reception & Floral Design: Miro (he's amazing and you must book him) at Empyrean Events

Nathan + Emily | Sunset Warren Dunes Engagement

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

The first time I talked with Emily & Nathan about their wedding, I had a feeling we’d get along great, but after getting to meet them in person for their engagement shoot it felt like I’d know them for a while. They’re so welcoming and the sweetest souls who just adore one another. They wanted to do their shoot in one of the places they went early in their relationship and it was the place Emily knew Nathan was who she wanted to be with when he helped an elderly woman all the way from the restaurant they had been at to her car. 

I had a fun time planning this shoot with Emily, since she is also a photographer in South Bend. I’m excited for their wedding this fall. 

Shaun + Bridget | Downtown Wedding At The Empyrean in Fort Wayne, IN

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

For Shaun & Bridget it was important for their wedding to not only be about the commitment they were making to each other, but as creatives they also wanted their wedding day to reflect what they love. Shaun is a talented designer, and Bridget has had a deep love for Disney since she was a little girl, so their wedding was the most beautifully designed Disney themed wedding I've seen. Each table at their reception was designed after a different Disney movie, and Miro at Empyrean Events knocked it out of the park. 

Both Shaun & Bridget are some of the kindest people I've had the pleasure of meeting. and it shows in their relationship. Their love runs deep, and they have such a strong sense of who they are together as a couple and individually. That was evident through the day, and it was beautiful.

 

Nate + Whitney | In Home Lifestyle Photography Fort Wayne, IN

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

As I've gotten to know Nate and Whitney a little more, I've learned that they're hilarious, talented, creative, genuine, and some of the kindest souls. Their little man should be making his grand entrance anytime, and he's about to find out he has the coolest parents. 

A couple weeks ago I spent some time in their home documenting the last little bits of it being just the two of them and their fur babies. 

Maddie + Cody | Sunset Love Session in Fort Wayne, IN

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

I've known Maddie since she is another amazing photographer in Fort Wayne, and she is so kind and just herself (which is so great). I knew she must have the sweetest boyfriend, when he contacted me to book a session for her Valentine's Day gift.  They're even sweeter together. 

It was so hard to narrow down which photos to share, because these two were so fun to photograph and absolutely adorable!
