Sara + Corey | Metea Park Engagement Session in Fort Wayne, IN

It was the last of the warm summer evenings and it couldn’t have been more perfect for Sara & Corey’s engagement session (well except for all the mosquitoes). They are such a fun couple and the shoot started off with a picnic in the park, followed by some exploring and squatting all the bugs in what looked like a gorgeous filed of yellow wildflowers.

It was a fantastic shoot and it was hard to choose which images to share.

Bridgette + Colin | Summer Night Engagement Session in Fort Wayne, IN

It was a perfect summer evening (except for the swarming bugs), the sun was setting and that beautiful dusky light was coming. Bridgette & Colin are so kind & beautiful souls, and I enjoyed walking around a local park in Fort Wayne, IN with them. I can’t wait for their wedding later this fall.

“Ruth gave the perfect amount of direction and use of spontaneity as a photographer. I always feel terribly awkward in front of the camera and was nervous to have our engagement and wedding photos taken. However, the time with Ruth taking photos flew by, and my husband (who hates getting his photos taken way more than I do...which is saying something) even said that he had a good time. Ruth makes it easy to relax in front of her, and her editing is so serene and magical. We really felt like she listened to us and our desires, but we trusted her so much that we didn’t have a lot of direction to give. As a photographer myself, I am now spoiled by Ruth and her photo taking magic. I look forward to the next photo session I have with her. :)” - Bridgette

Rachel + Rhys | Intimate Wedding on Sunset Beach in Treasure Island, Florida

When I first met with Rachel & Rhys last spring on a rainy Saturday morning, they instantly felt like friends (especially after finding out they also have Corgis). I was beyond thrilled when they wanted me to document their intimate wedding in St.Petersburg, FL that took place a couple weeks ago. It was such a beautiful day that was filled with celebrating the start of their marriage. I also say that intimate weddings are my favorite and it's because it really gives the couple the chance to really take in everything and not be so rushed. 

Rachel & Rhys are so kind, welcoming and truly people that have become friends.  I am so excited to share some of my favorite images from their day (I had to narrow it down 3 different times because of too many images). I'm looking forward to their reception in April.
