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.

Nathan and Ashleigh {Vow Renewal Photography}

Thursday, September 1st, 2016

This was not a normal vow renewal or session. These two have been married 10 years now, when Ash asked me to photograph her vow renewal I had assumed it would be a big deal, big party, food, dancing all the works. They had something smaller in mind. They wanted a ceremony just them with their babies. I was touched by the simplicity of it and the meaning behind it. They got married at age 18 and Ashleigh had expressed how it didn’t mean as much as it does now with having weathered 10 years together and how she was disappointed in her photos from that day in general so she wanted some fresh photos. This translates to I GET TO GO CRAZY BECAUSE THERE IS NO SCHEDULE!! Yes..I did go mildly crazy.

Watching these two, it was like they were getting married for the first time. They were giddy, and teary, and so full of joy and all this with KNOWING what marriage is like. The hard work and sacrifice and the decision to choose each other everyday over yourself. The diaper changes, the laundry, the bills, the laughter, the crying- all of it. They didn’t need fanfare, didn’t need a crowd. Just being together with their babies was all the celebration they needed. Watching them just so in love, and choosing each other all over again-imperfections and all- just really touched me. Even a few days after I just kept finding myself smiling thinking about it.

Their oldest son Brock walked her down the aisle. It was adorable.

The kids did so well! After awhile they did wander off but Ashleigh and Nathan didn’t even notice. Kids were digging in sand and playing in the water and still, Ashleigh said it was so perfect and just meant so much.

Nathan and Ashleigh thank you so much for asking me to be a small part of your special day. I agree, I think it was perfect and truly you guys inspire me- to love deeper, fight harder, and serve more selflessly. I know another 10 years will fly by…next time…let’s get a D.J.!
