"I look forward to working with her again as soon as possible and can't recommend her enough!"
"Bethany is highly professional and artistic and made my first experience in front of the camera as easy as breathing. She makes you comfortable and confident and is a dream to work with. She was wonderful at giving gentle direction and her eye for lighting and angles is incredible! Her edits are phenomenal and enhance the natural beauty of each captured moment.

GOT A QUESTION?
When will we receive our gallery?
How long will our gallery be online?
Wedding galleries will be available 6-8 weeks following your wedding date! Sessions are delivered 2-3 weeks following your session date. Each gallery will be delivered via Pic- Time and an invite will be sent to your inbox.
Galleries are hosted for a year on Pic-Time, after that, you may choose to renew your hosting for $60 per year. Of course, I keep your files safe & backed up in multiple locations (and reccomend you do the same!) but having access to them online is always convenient!
How do payment schedules work?
Do you travel?
A 50% deposit is required at the time of contract signing, while the remaining balance is due two months before the wedding. We can work together to create the best schedule for you when it comes to the remaining balance!
ABSOLUTELY! I freaking ADORE traveling and will go virtually anywhere you want to shoot. I also offer some super crazy discounts for sessions at my bucket list destinations that won't last long - so please reach out if want to shoot outside of the midsouth!
do you photograph anything other than weddings & couples?
what is included in your travel expenses?
My travel fees only include what are necessary expenses when traveling. This would encompass airbnb/hotel costs, transportation ($0.58/mile + $15/hour drive time + gas if taking my own vehicle OR flight + rental car costs), $50/day for meals, and any permits or costs required for our shooting location. Please keep in mind that I do my very best to keep these costs reasonable (you won't see me in a penthouse suite or BMW rental!) but running a business is not cheap and I cannot afford to foot the cost of traveling to far away sessions.
At this time, I currently photograph weddings, elopements, engagements/couples, maternity, boudoir, and portraits. I take on a limited number of branding projects per year, and no longer photograph events or parties that are not wedding-related.
"Can you photoshop my arms/shoes/hair?"
As much as I'd love to be a master Photoshop manipulator, I'm not. My editing does include small skin editing on close ups, but I won't do drastic edits like making your arms smaller. However, I can help pose you in a manner that makes you feel more confident!
What if we cancel our wedding/session?
Deposits are non refundable. I take a limited number of weddings/sessions per month, so once that date is reserved, it is unavailable to others and I lose the chance to make that income elsewhere.
can i request a different editing style?
My professional editing style is what makes my work truly unique and is something that I take pride in, and have spent years learning and perfecting. I only choose to work with clients that are completely head over heels for it! All editing and color grading is up to my artistic discretion. Extras or requests for re-edits, if accepted, will come at a fee priced per image.
What happens if you have an emergency the day of our wedding?
Only an absolute, 1000% emergency would keep me from making it to your wedding. If something truly awful happens and prevents me from attending, I will do everything in my power to find a trusted associate from my network of photographers to take my place. If I cannot find a replacement, you will be refunded.
Where do we print our photos?
It is reccomended that you print directly from your gallery via Pic-Time. If you have another printing service in mind, you are welcome to use them, however I STRONGLY advise against and do not guarantee the quality of the end product when using companies such as Walgreens, Sams, CVS, Walmart, Snapfish or any other non-professional printing service. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
