Sam Yoder Farm Wedding | Delaware Wedding Photographer | Holly + JR

Holly and JR’s Sam Yoder Farm wedding is one of my first weddings of the season. If every wedding is going to be as amazing as this one, then I cannot wait for the rest of the year! They met in 9th grade, and I’m sure they didn’t know they’d meet their forever at that age. Holly admits she wasn’t sure about this class clown, but eventually she gave him a chance, and the rest is history!

Holly is a big nature lover, and loves to photograph it, too! I knew we would get along so well. JR took her to Assateague Island in Maryland to propose to her among the wild ponies. I adore this proposal story, it’s one of the prettiest places on earth and a unique spot to pop the big question. It’s simple, yet so perfect! Actually, their wedding is only a few days shy of their TEN year anniversary! Now they have two dates to celebrate, all in one week.

Holly’s vision is a simple, greenery filled wedding with their closest friends and family. It could not have turned out better. I remember when we sat down to go over details and Holly confessed she was ready for it to be over. Well, she didn’t seem that way the day of! We had the best weather possible and we got to enjoy a soft lit sunset in the evening, complete with cows!!

 

 

JR’s gift to Holly, a Harper Grayce Sign for their new home! It’s going to look so pretty hung up!

The girls were ready to party! It made for some great laughs as we did Holly’s bridals.

I’m so glad they included their cute pups, Copper and Camo. They were the bestest dogs and stole the whole show.

Holly’s favorite spot at Sam Yoder Farm is a tucked away trail encased by lush trees. It’s so beautiful and is perfect for bride and groom portraits!

We headed out for sunset portraits, and were greeted by cows! We all couldn’t help but swoon over the cute babies. They just want to know what we are up to!

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

"The best (esp if you're awkward in photos)"

- Lauren + Hunter

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!

"Speechless."

- Bianca + Kyle

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

"Rebecca was a dream!"

- Casey + Kofi

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
