Bethany is a Dallas-based wedding photographer with a love for analog cameras, Fuji film and creating photographs that document the joy of living. She lives in Texas with her daughter, Amelia, and enjoys spending time outdoors, new projects and time spent in good company.

"I love the magnitude of the commitment of joining your life with the one you love. I love the emotions, the joy, the celebration, the excitement, the preparation - the beauty of it all is where I draw inspiration for the photographs that I capture. I have a deep desire to tell stories through the images that I create - my empathic personality keeps me connected with the emotion and dynamic throughout your wedding day and has shaped my natural, romantic approach to wedding photography."

"Bethany is phenomenal and was by far the best decision we made relative to our wedding! She is the absolute sweetest and was so knowledgeable and accommodating throughout the entire process. She did our engagement shoot as well as our wedding, and we literally CANNOT stop looking at those photos. They're timeless and romantic - everything we'd hoped for - and we could not be happier!"

"She was very generous with her time, price-wise she is about average when compared to other photographers with the same amount of experience and years of being in business, but she does do a lot for you, more than most photographers, and her quality is excellent. She is also flexible. The quality of her work is remarkable, we are extremely pleased and have already recommended her to a few friends. You will be very pleased and glad that you hired her."

"When planning my wedding, I took the greatest effort in finding THE photographer that speaks to my kind of style. And I'm so happy to have found that in Bethany. Our photos turned out wonderful, dreamy and classic - exactly how I envisioned them to be! I have no doubt that these photos will stand the test of time. During the planning process, she was quick to respond to emails and I absolutely love her suggestions on what would look great in photos, which of course I took heed to. She is also focused and will get things done amidst the chaos of a wedding. Everything was well worth it. I am happy that my decision to choose Bethany was spot on because photos are something you cannot ever compromise, especially on one of the most important days of your life! Thank you Bethany!"

YOUR LOVE IS TIMEleSS. 
LET'S MAKE IT LAST FOREVER. 

     This image immortalizes the joy experienced on their wedding day by one of my bride's grandparents. It was captured in 1954, on film. Everything about this image is timeless and elegant, from the grain of the black & white film, to the tailored tuxedo, to the bride adorned beautifully for her groom. 
    The era in which analog cameras captured photographs on film reigned for 100 years, during which millions of beautiful images were created. However, with the advent of the digital camera, which offered instant access to imagery rather than waiting for film to be developed, the film industry was dealt a staggering blow. Most analog cameras ceased to be manufactured by the early 2000s, then shortly after even film itself faced the danger of ceasing production altogether. 
      But there were a few photographers who discerned that their digital images lacked something much like a soul that they saw in their film photographs, and they refused to let their art form be digitalized and forged ahead, remaining loyal to film. 
     Some twenty years later, I found myself wishing that I could capture things with a camera - a beautiful sunset, an exquisite landscape. In my mind I would think, that would be an amazing photograph, I should have a camera to document that. The next thing I knew I had fallen in love with photography and the rest is history. Yet, as I grew, in my work I yearned for qualities that were missing - almost indescribable subtleties and nuances. I recalled images that spoke to me and would think how was that created? What can I do differently? Thus began my journey of discovery. I realized that my childhood photographs were captured on film, which was intriguing. I began to notice those subtle qualities that I yearned for, a glimpse here and there when scrolling though a wedding blog, and I would note the photographer and ask myself what are they doing differently? It wasn't until about 6 years ago when I actually saw a photographer credit their film stock on a blog post that I stumbled into the world of film photography and all of the pieces began to fall into place. 

     Film was alive and well and oh how it inspired and excited me! I spent months researching the best cameras, lenses and varieties of film stock before making the investment and beginning my journey to learn the art of film photography. I won't bore you with the details, but to say that I love what I do is an exaggerated understatement. There is something so raw, so authentic about waiting for the perfect moment before committing it to be captured forever on film. Something so essential to my being about analyzing and metering the light that falls on my subject, about there being a limit to the number of images that I can capture on one roll of film. There is something so very powerful, even freeing, about forcing myself to tell an amazing love story with my images and not use thousands of redundant exposures to do it justice. It awakens something deep inside of me, a passion that rises to the challenge, that forces every ounce of creativity within me into every single frame that I capture. Trust me whenever I say that those who aren't in love with this medium do not understand the language I am speaking - to some it is foolishness, to others a mystery, but to me it is my beloved craft and a sacred art form.
