My Process

If you’re anything like me, you know that beauty can be found in the understated moments. These are the ones that’ll invite you back to reminisce again and again.

There's magic in every moment

Especially when you slow down and look closely. 

– Allison + Carson

It's rare to find a photographer who cares so deeply about their clients, and that's exactly what Bethany does! Our images were delivered in a timely manner and all communication was handled with great professionalism. We had the best experience working with Bethany and would highly recommend choosing her to capture your day!"

I could not say enough good things about Bethany, not only as a photographer but also as a person. She always made me feel welcome and loved and allowed me to be myself. Bethany is amazing at all that she does because of who she is! The thing I love most about her photos is that they are timeless! I feel like photos these days can get a little out of hand with editing and styling. I know I can hang up our photos in my house without worrying it will be "out of style" in a few years. She is great at directing the photo, but also capturing who we truly are. The photos look like us, and not two uncomfortable staged people. I know I can always rely on her! She captured the day perfectly. So so thankful for Bethany and am so excited so show off her work for the rest of my life! 

"We chose Bethany because of her authentic-styled approach. She captured our day in its purest form, capturing our true personalities throughout the wedding day.

– Abby + Josh

"The photos are everything we dreamed about and more! Bethany's ability to capture the feeling of a moment is truly incredible.
