Hot Springs Chapel & Barn at Lost Creek Wedding – Hitee & Casey

October 9th, 2017 | Weddings

This was such a fantastic day. I always love spending time with couples who love life and love each other. Hitee and Casey definitely fall in that category and their wedding day was filled with so much laughter, killer dance moves, and so many wonderful memories.

The ceremony was at the beautiful Garvan Garden’s Anthony Chapel and then for the reception we went over to The Barn at Lost Creek. Both wonderful places! Since Hitee and Casey are super great and always up for some extra adventure, we finished up the portraits toward the end of the night with some starry sky pictures. :)

Here are my favorites from the wedding! Thanks Hitee and Casey for having me along! :) Also, thanks to Abby Tran for 2nd shooting with me.

Hanna & Luke Married!

August 18th, 2017 | Weddings

This is Hanna and Luke. These two are fun loving and charismatic, always bringing smiles to anyone their lives touch. And now they’re Mr. and Mrs. Smith! I’ve known Hanna and Luke for quite a few years now, so this wedding was extra special to me. I was Luke’s housemate through the beginning stages of these two becoming a thing, and it’s been a real joy seeing these two friends of mine grow closer together, finally leading to this day. Wishing all the best to Hanna and Luke on their big adventure together. Congratulations, friends. <3

North Carolina Adventure

August 17th, 2017 | Personal

This is a tale of the Yoder family’s 2017 adventures in the North Carolina Smoky Mountains. I adore my family and treasure any time that I’m able to spend with them. :) This year we stayed at a more secluded cabin than our previous time in the Smokys, so we had had fewer destinations, but stuck with a favorite swimming spot, favorite hiking/mountain spot (Max Patch on the Appalachian trail), playing games and hanging out at the cabin (hammock game strong), and more movie nights (with the Secret Life of Walter Mitty now a family vacation movie necessity).

Here are some of my favorite people. It’s my family–plus one & minus one. Enjoy the photos! :)
