Beth's work is inspired by the honest moments that define who we are and why we are special. She describes her photographic style as pure, real, and honest. She takes great care to be mindful and shoot with her heart, as much as her head, to capture something genuine and beautiful. Beth believes everyone has a story worth telling and that love is always in the details.
Beth is lucky enough to get to teach photography at the high school level in addition to taking on personal assignments part-time. She finds purpose in helping students express themselves and connect through story and creative expression. It's possible that if you choose Beth to photograph your special day, she may ask to bring along a student to intern. If a student intern is welcome by the bride and groom, student images will be shared with the bride and groom but will only supplement the package and in no way take the place of images that would otherwise have been taken by Beth. There is no additional fee to the bride and groom if a student intern is welcome, just a free second shooter!
On a personal note, Beth grew up in rural Ohio, but currently resides in Seattle, Washington. She believes her rural upbringing helped cultivate her creativity. In a place where cars shared the road with horse & buggy and lightening bugs twinkled over silent filds at dusk, Beth had to look closely to find something where she thought there was nothing. She believes she learned the art of observation out of boredom. She is inspired by the Seattle landscape and appreciative of the often lamented rainy winters, as they force her to slow down and have an excuse to enjoy the beauty of boredom again.

Beth photographed our wedding and did an absolutely wonderful job! She was extremely easy to work with and very responsive to all of our questions/concerns. We wanted a photographer who was skilled at candid photos, but could also do a few more formal portraits -- and Beth exceeded our expectations. She provided very helpful insight as we developed our day-of schedule and shot list. She also blended in perfectly with all of our family and friends at the wedding -- so many of our guests commented on how impressed they were with her work and just how lovely she was.
Within a week of the wedding, we got our sneak peek photos and we were so impressed. Beth did an amazing job capturing our personalities and the spirit of our wedding. She managed to capture everything just as we imagined it - from our first look on the beach, to the group picture after the ceremony, to our reception and all of the little details and moments that made our wedding day so special.
If you're looking for a reasonably priced photographer who can beautifully capture the spirit of your wedding day (and is an all around awesome person too) - Beth is your gal!
