| the experience

My goal as your photographer is to provide you the BEST overall experience and part of that is making sure we are a great match! For me, this means creating and fostering connection and relationships with everyone I serve. I don't want to show up on your wedding day without ever getting to talk to you beforehand! That would be zero fun!!

Outdoor shoots are definitely my jam. And no, this doesn't mean we have to climb a mountain (although we can if you want!). This could be as simple as a stroll around the lake or exploring the local downtown scene. We can even stop and get drinks after the shoot if you want! If we shoot indoors, I love finding crisp, clean, and naturally lit rooms. 
   
I don't ever want anyone to feel like they have to act, think, or dress a certain way to work with me. My shoots are relaxed but I'll be sure to provide you simple posing prompts (because no one ever knows what to do with their hands-totally understand!!!) to get a nice mixture of candid and traditional photos for your final gallery. 

are we a good match?

LOVE NOTES

“Bethany is an amazing photographer to work with! She is kind, patient, and makes each session so comfortable. I absolutely adore and will treasure the photos she's taken. I will continue to have our pictures taken by her and will recommend her work to anyone!” 

“Taking engagement pictures with Bethany was fun, relaxing, and worth-while. Personally, I don’t like taking pictures, usually I’m frustrated with the experience and disappointed with the results. However, with Bethany, I didn’t have to force a smile because I was just plain old having a good time. Plus, she made us look better than I’ve ever seen in a photo.” 

“My fiance and I just got our engagement photos from Bethany and they are beautiful! Bethany was so fun to work with during the shoot, she made us feel comfortable and just made the whole process easy. She had open communication from day one. We can't wait for our wedding this fall!.”

What packages do you offer?

For weddings, I offer a 6, 8, and 10 hour package. Each can be customized to fit your wedding needs. For lifestyle sessions I have local and adventure packages. 

How many images are included?

Final wedding galleries will vary depending on activity and timeline. For a 6 hour package, you can expect at least 500 fully edited photos (more hours, more photos!) 

Do you give out RAW (unedited) photos?

I don't! Each gallery will be fully edited, consistent for color and style, and delivered via a password protected online gallery. Wedding are delivered within 6 weeks. Lifestyle galleries are delivered within 3 weeks.

How does payment work?

20% nonrefundable and signed contract by the bride and groom secures your wedding date. The remainder of the payment is due 30 days prior to your wedding. 

How do I book you?

After choosing your package, email/text/call me and we will set up a 30 minute session to go over the contract and any other questions you have! 20% non refundable and signed contract secures your date!

What happens if you can’t be at our wedding?

I would have to be on my death bed to not show up for your wedding. BUT, as we have seen with 2020 things do happen. It's best to always be prepared. I have an amazing selection of associate shooters that I trust with all my heart that will shoot your wedding and I will edit and deliver all photos.

What if we cancel/reschedule our date?

There will be a rescheduling fee. If I'm unavailable for your new date, I will have my associate shoot your wedding and I will edit & deliver the gallery! Please note **only my 2020 brides were given a one time no charge rescheduling due to COVID.**

Do you recommend an engagement shoot?

Yes!! x1000 this is a great opportunity for us to hang out, explore, and get to know each other. The better I know you, the better I can serve you on your wedding day! Plus....it's just really fun and you'll get some amazing photos!!

What happens if the weather is bad?

For lifestyle and couple shoots- most likely we will shoot in light rain. It can be quite dreamy, I promise!!! If there is severe weather, I will cancel only one hour prior to the session. For weddings-we will laugh and still enjoy the day! 

Will you photoshop us?

I only edit "marks" that will not be present in two weeks i.e. acne or bruises. My goal is to provide guidance with outfit selection and posing that will help make you feel beautiful no matter what! 

What do we wear to our photoshoot?

I have an outfit guide that I will send you after booking! I LOVE helping clients style their outfit choices so feel free to text me pictures and ideas you have. My editing works best with neutral, earth tones: whites, blacks, gray, tan coloring. Less is ALWAYS more 

How do travel expenses work?

Lifestyle sessions: I have both local and adventure packages 

Weddings: Travel within WA is always included. Weddings located outside of WA will incur a travel fee based on your wedding details

Do you offer discounts?

I offer discounts for rainbow baby sessions and military homecomings. please inquire!

Do you help in the planning process?
