Meet the photographer
My name is Bethannie! I'm a Central Oregon based photographer specializing in Weddings, Portraits, moody edits, and bad jokes. I'm a hopeless romantic filled with Wanderlust. Probably off somewhere with a camera in one hand and an iced coffee in the other. Firm believer that plain M&Ms are highly underrated and that it should be Autumn for 365 days of the year.
Why I do photography
I've been photographing ever since I received my first camera in the 5th grade. There was something about capturing the beauty in the world permanently that just fascinated me--with a little help from my great grandfather gifting me his beautifully captured images of butterflies in his personal garden. I love that photography can be used to capture the feeling in every moment, whether it be the nerves of the bride before she links her arm in her father's right before walking down the aisle, the excitement that shines in the High School Senior's eyes as he thinks about his future College, or the mix of the two emotions fluttering through the future parents just weeks from their due date of their new baby. I want to capture those moments for you, and I want to be there at the very beginning, to the very end, with everything in-between. I want you to love your photos now, and love them even more in 20, 40, 60 years.
A little more about me
I'm a hopeless romantic. That's truly why I do what I do. I believe everyone's love story is special enough to capture and special enough to share. I believe no family is the same, which is why I go into each new session with a fresh eye--looking to make some new friends and new memories. I believe that everyone deserves beautiful photos, which is why I keep my prices low and my professionalism high.
I love the golden hour, the littlest details that make up the biggest day of your life, and the raw emotions that present themselves with every single moment--happy or sad. As a past bride myself, I know how truly important it is to mesh well with your photographer. I planned my wedding day out probably starting at age 10...but don't most girls? I know how vital those photos of your special day are, and how you can't get even the most precious moment back-no matter how hard you try. That's why when you commit yourself to me, I commit myself to you. Your love story becomes my fairytale, and I will capture it as such. So, let's do this...I want to get to know you: you as a mother, as a father, as a husband, as a wife. I want to capture you as you truly are-a magnificent human being gracing this planet at the same exact time as I am. How incredible is that?
