1) She was so easy going in planning! We changed our plan with her a couple times as far as hours/shooters needed and she was flexible. And she was willing to make a six hour drive from Portland to northern Washington bright and early on our wedding day.
2) Even though our wedding day was the first time we met, her sweet, calm, and confident personality made it easy to feel comfortable with her. By the end of the day they felt like friends.
3) She gets it. She so quickly understood our aesthetic and relationships and the photos really depict us in an authentic way.
4) She captured all the details! And they all feel alive. From the more posed portraits to the candid moments.
5) She is wildly creative. Some of my favorite photos are the ones where she got creative with the composition (capturing the giant evergreens) and processing. Her final photographs were phenomenal.
It's been a bit over a year since our wedding and I still feel so thankful to have had Bethany as part of our day! "

" Bethany was a godsend for our tiny beautiful wedding. She was extremely educational and informative when it came to what she was doing, and why she was doing it. Unlike some photographers who only make demands or requests of their subjects, Bethany is a natural conversationalist who involves her hosts in even the subtlest of details of the shot which creates extremely natural settings, poses and expressions (as you can see). Bethany even drove 4 hours to meet us at our wedding destination in the TX hill country where signs of civilization can be scant!
Her charm along with her natural ability to capture beautiful moments in time (as cliche as that may sound) are really astounding. And you can tell that she has a true passion for what she does, and it makes for an enjoyable experience for all involved, ESPECIALLY when you receive your final product. "

" OMG BETHANY!!!!! Our photos arrived today and we just went through them...
I cannot tell you how incredibly happy I am with our photos. You are seriously a GENIUS. They are so beautiful and intimate, all the right details and special moments. And I have to say... we look great! You did such a good job, I'm just so incredibly pleased. I teared up multiple times going through the photos, it's just so beautifully captured.
HUGEST HUG EVER!!! "

" Bethany was the sweetest photographer - she made you feel more like a friend than a client. I felt like she was genuinely excited for me and my husband, which made the whole wedding process that much more fun. Her vision and style is beautiful, and we could not be happier. "

" Bethany did such an amazing job shooting our engagement pictures! She helped us pick a location that provided a beautiful backdrop and she made sure we felt comfortable and at ease the entire time which only improved the final pictures. We love the way our pictures turned out and have enjoyed sharing them with family and displaying them wherever possible. We are so excited to have her shoot our wedding! We highly recommend Bethany as a photographer and talk her up every chance we get. "

" Bethany is an amazing person and photographer. She has a talent for capturing authentic moments and utilizes the natural light to make one of a kind photos. She is very easy going and makes the "photo shoot" a fun and easy process. I wish we could hire her to take photos of every major life event!!! "

" There are a lot of people who create excellent images of our world and the people in it. Bethany falls in this group of people. A subset of that group creates beautiful images of couples in love. Bethany falls in this group of people as well. A subset of that group of people exhibit the flexibility, creativity, and wherewithal to create conditions for extraordinary images to emerge from a photoshoot. Bethany falls in this group of people as well. A very small subset of that group stands with you and your fiance on a remote beach, soaked from torrential downpour, back against hurricane-force winds, risking gear and bodily integrity, calmly setting up the kinds of timeless shots that exhibit the caliber of photographer Bethany Jeffery is known to be. She invented that small subset of people and my fiance and I couldn't recommend her more. "
-Dan & Allison Hoffman
" Bethany is an amazing photographer in so many ways. She's kind, funny, adventurous, and truly goes out of her way to find beautiful locations. I adore how she is able to produce images with organic, raw emotion and interaction. Bethany made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and encouraged us when we felt insecure. We will cherish our engagement photos for the rest of our lives and look forward to working with her in the future. "
