About Bethany & Wellspring Photography

I’m excited about how Wellspring Photography is growing and through that I am able to learn more as well as venture into new areas of photography. We now offer packages for any events in life, from as big as weddings and births to as small as your child’s first time making chocolate chip cookies. We are now even doing school photographs from preschool through high school, as well as family, pregnancy, and baby sessions. Any photography need you have, we would be honored and excited to fulfill it.

Here at Wellspring Photography we love photography and love capturing the important moments in life. Any moment worth remembering is worth photographing.

Nate and Mal ~ Engaged {Toledo Wedding Photographer}

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Nate and Mal want a quick engagement, so one short week after he popped the question we did their engagement shoot. This time we were on my turf. I really wanted to get photos of them in the dunes in Holland but we ran out of time. SO! I made do, I found a place that was dune-esque and it was close to a secondary location. I am pretty pleased with how they turned out!

When they first met, Nate didn't like coffee and Mal didn't like beer. So, they set out to expand each other's horizons. Now they each have a lovely palette for dark roasts and craft brews.

I think what I love best about these two is how respectful they are of one another. They are careful in their speech and they really do compliment one another. They are opposites for sure but I've never heard a harsh word from either of them.

The other thing I love about these two is just how much they make each other smile. It's so easy to be around them and photograph them because they are never not smiling (I make up my own grammar sometimes!). Seriously though, they are crazy about each other.

This one I couldn't decide what was my favorite so I asked our Facebook fans. They overwhelmingly agreed color…and I'm pretty sure I agree too. This photo really screams Mal's personality. Muted colors, soft and romantic but playful to. Just reminds me of her.

I REALLY wanted to do my maternity photos here but they mowed it two days before my session. Needless to say I was SO happy they agreed to this spot! Walking through 4ft tall grass isn't for everyone :).

This is my favorite one. This is just them. It's how they look at each other all the time, it's how they interact. I just love it!

 

Nate and Mal, I am REALLY looking forward to April. I think it's going to be amazing! I can't wait to see all the details you come up with and I'm super excited to travel to Indianapolis!

Nate Proposes {Holland Photographer}

Saturday, September 6th, 2014

This is the first time (long awaited) to be asked to photograph a proposal! Nate did a BEAUTIFUL job. He had his brother set up a little area at the top of a sand dune in Holland, MI. At sunset they climbed the sand dune after a walk on the beach. He read to Mal out of a book he wrote and finally got on one knee and popped the question. I was laying face down in the sand dune peeking through some grass and I could hardly contain my excitement. When he did finally get down on one knee he was choking up and Mal was so excited that she was jumping!

I have to say being part of such a surprise was amazing. I LOVED traveling to the beach and dunes and capturing this literally once in a lifetime event!!!! This was a complete surprise to Mal and she didn't even have one tiny inkling, Nate had a lot of help and had all of her family and friends as well as his family and friends waiting to congratulate them and go celebrate. It took a TON of planning and went off perfectly.
