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

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! 


Justen + Candis + Keston | Lifestyle & Documentary Family Session

Posted on by Ruth Yaro



I enjoy nothing more than when I get to follow around a sweet family and document part of their lives. Candis & Justen are so welcoming, genuine and all around wonderful and their little man is so full of life. Toddlers are such a fun age to photograph, because they get so excited and want to show you every toy they have. It's awesome. 

There are so many priceless moments that happen during these types of sessions, and I love when I get to the chance to document those memories for families to look back on. 




A Look Back On 2016 | Yaro Photography

Posted on by Ruth Yaro

How is 2016 almost over already? I know it's an over used phrase, but this year flew by! 

I feel so fortunate to have met and worked with so many wonderful people this year!  I can't wait to see what 2017 brings, but before that happens, I wanted to share some of the images from this last year. I wish I could share all of them, but it would be a very long post. 

Cheers to 2016!
