    Bethany is the best!!

    I literally cannot say enough good things about Bethany. We first met her back in 2019 when we started planning our (doomed) June 2020 wedding. She was incredibly flexible with us throughout the entire planning process and was willing to put up with not one, but TWO date changes.

    Her work on our engagement photos was gorgeous, and I can't wait to see how our wedding photos turn out. Bethany has a gift for capturing candid moments that really highlight who you are and what you care about, which was the biggest thing I cared about with photography.

    Not only is her work incredible, she is also SO fun to hang out with! She was a great sport for our whole (very long) wedding day, and multiple people in our bridal party told us how much they liked her. Book Bethany for your wedding - you won't be disappointed!!

    Incredible Photographer!!

    Hiring Bethany for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made!! She was absolutely incredible to work with and we couldn't be happier with our wedding photos. As two people who don't love being in front of the camera, she did an awesome job making up feel comfortably and capturing the best of us. She was so easy to work with, which was so great while planning a wedding during a pandemic. I'm still in awe of our engagement and wedding photos and have had countless complements on them from friends and family. If your wedding photos are important to you, hire Bethany ASAP!!

    Incredible Photographer and Experience

    Hire Bethany and don't look back. She is an extremely talented photographer and a pleasure to work with. Especially during these uncertain times, she continuously worked with our updated wedding plans and always maintained a positive attitude. Can't thank her enough for making our wedding day so memorable.

I adore working with Bethany at Maypole Studios! She has a fantastic eye and is amazing at capturing the joy present at the wedding day in her images. Highly recommended if you are hoping to start with a talented photographer, and end with a great friend. :)

Bethany Fritz is so amazingly talented that she truly could triple her price and be worth every penny. Fortunately, she keeps her pricing very competitive so brides at almost any budget can afford to hire her and have one of the best Chicago wedding photographers document their special day. Bethany captures both the "big moments" and the small details, so although your wedding day may go by in what seems like a minute, you'll be able to reflect on every moment long after you toss your bouquet (metaphorically speaking). She is also a blast to work with and puts everyone at ease so she can get the best photos possible. I cannot recommend Bethany and Maypole Studios more highly. I can't wait to work with her again!
