THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE
Your go-to gal
Hey there! I am Bethanne, and I am so excited to meet you! I am a pink-obsessed, coffee-loving, mama of two little ones, nestled in the cute mountain town of Harpers Ferry, WV with my husband and our sweet little fur-baby, Cinderella.
I began my wedding photography business after realizing how much I loved being behind the camera documenting the many precious moments of life, including the milestones of our growing family. I have a passion for capturing true love, and I seek the romantic, natural, and authentic moments between two people about to become partners for life. I am a true hopeless romantic, and nothing is more exciting than getting the opportunity to be a part of someone's special day. I can't wait to chat more and celebrate with the two of you!
My family means the entire world to me!
My husband, Seth, and I met and fell in love while serving in the U.S. Navy in the state of Virginia. We married in 2009, and our first-born, Noah, arrived in 2010.
Because of our obligations to the service, Seth and I had to spend the first two years of our marriage apart. He was stationed in Italy, while I remained close to Washington, D.C. As I raised our son on my own, I found it incredibly important to document all of the different firsts and milestones of our baby's life and our family. Photography and documentation became such an important tool for connection because we lived so far apart in the beginning. Photographs allowed us to stay involved, and even though Seth wasn't with us, he did get to see all of the changes within Noah's first year.
I have a huge passion for helping and educating other creative business owners. I know that I would be nowhere if I had not received the help and guidance of my mentors.
I fully believe that we are stronger together, and I want to answer any questions you may have for me regarding owning a business, blogging, work/life balance, and more!
Whether you're just starting out, or you have been in business for a couple of years, I want to help guide you through the process of growing, marketing, branding your style and personality, as well as operating a business while raising a family (which can be tricky)!
Limited dates in 2017 are available for mentoring & education. Please contact me via email or the Contact form below for more information on mentoring and coaching!
"My wife and I had such an excellent experience with Bethanne! After our initial engagement shoot, we knew we'd chosen the perfect photographer for us. Bethanne was sincerely excited to see us get married, and it truly shows in the images she captured."
"Beginning with our unique engagement shoot and carrying on to our wedding day, Bethanne and her work far exceeded our expectations. Thanks to her, the memories of our greatest day were captured beautifully to last a lifetime. She's everything you want in a photographer and more, and uses her talent to bring out the best in every photo."
"Working with Bethanne is a wonderful experience. She captures moments that you will cherish forever, while making the experience fun and easy!"
"Thank you so much for capturing some of our most special moments! You make us feel so comfortable and special in front of the camera! We could not be happier with our images and will cherish them forever! We can't wait to work with you again soon!"
"Bethanne was recommended to us by a close friend, and we could not have been more pleased. My husband and I are definitely not center-of-attention people, but Bethanne made us feel extremely comfortable and and captured the most incredible photos that truly feel like us. We gave her a very tight timeline to work with, and she was the ultimate professional and somehow managed to do it all. We have the most gorgeous photographs from our wedding and we cannot describe how appreciative we are for that. We cannot recommend Bethanne enough!"
"It truly isn't possible for Adam and I to tell you how grateful we are to you! Everyone said you made them comfortable during pictures, they were right you quickly become a friend! Thank you for capturing our elopement and for making it a day we can share the beauty of through photos!"
"From the beginning, Bethanne's style and talent spoke for itself as a photographer. I truly loved her bright and airy photos and personalized posts. I just knew she was the photographer for us. ...She exceeded our expectations and managed to capture beyond just our must-have images, she included so many "moment by moment" photos. It is priceless to have a photographer who becomes your friend in the process and gives you such a beautiful wedding day because of her participation and the gift of her talent....We both loved her and can't wait to work with her again one day hopefully!"
"Wow, where do we even start?!! Bethanne is by far the most amazing, humble, friendly, caring person in the world. We met Bethanne last year for our engagement photo session. She felt like a friend instantly, which is so important to have in a photographer!!! She got to know us personally...she makes her client relationships last by just being her amazing bubbly self. She is beyond talented and I continue to recommend her to all of my friends. We will be using her any time we need professional photos...We can't say enough great things!"
