She was able to capture us and our own unique style and that was very important. She didn't force anything on us and let us be ourselves but was able to capture some really special moments. I would recommend her to anybody.

Frequently asked questions

How would you define your style?

Three recurring elements that emerge throughout my body of work: effortless, timeless, and vibrant color. I believe that much of a photographer’s success depends on real interactions with clients. The more comfortable you feel around me, the more natural your photographs will be! 

I’m awkward/uncomfortable in front of the camera. Can you help me with that?

One of the most significant parts of my job is to help you feel comfortable! Consider your time with me as a visual counseling session. I love easing people into the creative process, whether that’s grabbing a cocktail beforehand or taking photos at your favorite places. 

How far do you travel? Does it cost extra?

Although I mainly shoot on the east and west coast, I’ve flown all over the world to photograph weddings: Scotland, LA, Dominican Republic, Connecticut, Portland.

The best part? My pricing includes all domestic travel costs.

how do you choose your second photographer?

We only work with the best of the best. We have a team of professional associate photographers as well as second photographers that use top of the line equipment, Each photographer goes through a training process led by Bethany so you can trust that each photographer has been properly vetted.


The Full

What lasts after the wedding day? Your love, new family, & the photos. Your photographs will live for generations, which is why I don’t follow trends. I simply document you, sincerely and organically.
