Hometown Photoshoot with Madalyn Yates Photography

Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.
— Dorothea Lange

I love photography.

I may not be the best at creating beautiful photos, but I really enjoy snapping em, editing em, sharing em, and having the memories held inside to look back on.

Since I began travelling, my love for photography has grown exponentially.


In my first couple of years living and travelling in Asia, I successfully mastered the art of the selfie thanks to my GoPro and tripod. Then I met Andrew… and he’s kind of taken over as far as insta-boyfriend duties are concerned. We’ve captured some pretty great photos of each other on our travels, but still struggle a bit when it comes to capturing good photos together.

I was so happy when my friend Madalyn Yates said she was looking for couples to shoot in the Greensboro area. I was visiting home for a couple of months, and Andrew was planning to visit for my sisters wedding, so I quickly signed us up… without asking him. Sorry, babe - (but it turned out alright, eh?).

We’ve taken a lot of pictures in a lot of places, but these hometown shots might just be my favorite.

Though it rained (actually, poured), we still had so much fun during our shoot.

Madalyn made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, gave us directions when we didn’t know what to do with our hands, and somehow managed to capture our love, happiness, (and awkward) in a beautiful way.

Andrew is such an important part of my life, and I’m forever thankful for his love, kindness, and full support of my every project, passion, and whim - including this impromptu photoshoot, lol.

Thanks so much again for capturing us together in my hometown, Madalyn! Now I have cherished memories, beautiful photos to frame in our new apartment, and an inexhaustible amount of boyfriend posts for the gram - (sorry I’m not sorry).

If you’re in the Greensboro area (and even if you’re not) I would highly recommend booking a shoot with Madalyn and guarantee you will not be disappointed with the results. This creative genius shoots weddings, engagements, babies, family sessions… You name it, and she probably does it. Now I’m just waiting on her to visit Europe for some destination shots ;)
