anniversaries

But i live for the romantic, authentic, and natural moments

I LOVE the pretty.

My goal, as a wedding photographer, is to provide my brides and grooms, as well as their families and loved ones, with beautiful, priceless memories of one of the most special days in their lives. 




When I meet with brides & grooms-to-be, it's very important to me to get to know them, as I want to make sure that we are the PERFECT fit! Once you've booked and secured your date, we will get your engagement photo session scheduled. This is where the fun really begins! 



Engagement sessions allow me to get to know my amazing couples better, and I get the opportunity to see how you two are in front of the camera! I want my couples to be 100% comfortable with me so that once the wedding day arrives, all you have to focus on is marrying your best friend!

It's an honor to be a part of your big day

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.
When my grandmother passed away, I looked to the photographs, the tangible memories, I had of her and the ones that sat in boxes and albums in her home and the homes of family members. It was my way to still feel connected to her somehow. I looked through several boxes, recounting her life as an adult.... during her childhood.... and I listened to stories my aunts and older cousins told me about the days long before I came into the world. I missed her dearly, but having those photographs meant the world to me. My grandmother was such a special woman to me. She raised me and taught me so much about life, organization, and accomplishing goals. I didn't have a great relationship with my parents, in fact, I had a really rough and traumatic childhood, which is why my grandmother raised my brother and I. And from a young age, I had a love for taking pictures and for documenting memories and life. She instilled that in me. 

Hey there! I am Bethanne, and I am so excited to meet you! I am a twenty somethin', pink-obsessed, coffee-loving, mama of two little ones, nestled in the cute mountain town of Harpers Ferry, WV with my husband and

I am passionate about preserving family legacies. When my grandmother passed away, I immediately looked to the tangible memories - the photos she and family members had. I have truly cherished memories and photographs that tell the stories of our lives. I am a wedding photographer not only to capture a love story between two people, but for granddaughters everywhere.

my family

My family means the entire world to me! 
My husband and I met and fell in love while serving in the military in the state of Virginia. We got married in 2009, and our first-born, Noah, arrived the following year.

I officially began my business in 2013 and before actually going into business, I had been taking photos of my son and our family to of course document milestones and those special moments, but I knew that I wanted to help people document their lives so they, and their children and their grandchildren and their great-grandchildren, could always remember their legacy. One day, a granddaughter may be looking through several boxes or photo albums with the hope of staying connected to their loved one, and to know that I was a part of that and I helped provide that...well that means everything to me. I am a wedding photographer because I know how important it is to have tangible memories to look back on, to pass on through the generations, and leave behind a legacy. Yes, I "love love" and chasing light and all of those other things we hear so often....but I really, truly know the importance of freezing beautiful moments (and messy ones, too) in time. Our life is full of so many amazing moments, and they deserve to be captured, for granddaughters everywhere. My grandmother led an interesting, beautiful, amazing, strong life, and I will always cherish the photos and memories I have of her.

"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!"

"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!"

kathy & jack

"If you are looking for a light, bright, natural, romantic style, you've found it in Bethanne. I've had so many people comment on how sweet she was the day of and how beautiful the entire album turned out. We LOVE our pictures. Bethanne is responsive, professional, and so thoughtful and fun to work with. I didn't think about how much time we would be spending with our photographer on our wedding day (most of the day!), and I am so thankful that it was Bethanne we shared it with. It was like hanging out with a great friend, who happens to be an amazing photographer. I could go on forever....but just hire her and you'll see what I mean!!"
