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.

Elite Events Grand Opening! {Toledo Event Photographer}

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

It's big news in the wedding/event industry. Elite Events has a STOREFRONT! Elite Events does wedding and event design, coordination and planning as well as florals, custom stationary and rentals like chairs and linens and many other details you might need. They are just a one stop for all things wedding and party! The inside looks INCREDIBLE. I was blown away. They had a couple of mock-up areas to showcase a couple of designs for weddings and parties. Not only that they sell all sorts of delicious details and gifts. I was giddy..

You can find the new studio at 1113 Adams St in Toledo. If you are planning your wedding or party be sure to stop by, it's cozy and you'll feel WAY less stressed about the planning of your event after you leave.

They had a tent set up outside in the back of their store with these lovely tables, a bar and music by Decorative Sound and a s'mores bar! Yum!! Plus Eye Candy Photobooth. Even with all that I still think Bella was running the show πŸ™‚

Signature EE drink and their sweet little water bottles. Kati gave the goblets as a gift to Nikki. Perfect.

Little boxes for your treats. Ok, so I don't know why I would need a bird's nest but I really want it! So cute. I'm sure it will go home with a lucky bride!

Ok have you ever seen an ombre cake? Aaaaand I told you the chairs were comfy!

They have signs all over that you can purchase and here was one of my favorite invites. I believe I read on Nikki's blog that the more interesting your invite is the higher percentage of invited guests arrive. She always has the BEST invites. This one is clearly nautical themed and I go NUTS for stripey straws.

The thing I love about EE is how they incorporate textures, pattern, and color into everything they do. A photographer's dream.

Ok so Sparkly, textured napkin, textured table cloth…and a menu. LOVE.

One of the mock-up centerpieces they have. I was nearly drooling.

Big colored clothes pins…again I don't know what I would do with these (perhaps Bean needs these for his bday party next year) but I LOVE them. I'm guessing another lucky bride will snag these as well.

The s'mores bar. I did have a treat while I was hanging out πŸ™‚

AHHHHHH. I want to drink EVERY drink with one of these. Just makes life happier I think. A little color and pattern does the soul good.

ok…I am sure EVERYONE is drooling now right? Custom cutlery in the coolest stand ever.

Sweet little Bella. I think one day she might be a big part of EE. She is already a natural.

This was the best part to me. The cutting of the ribbon. I got a little teary. I thought of all their hard work, and how Bella and Magnolia are right there with Nikki and Kati and what a legacy of hard work they are leaving them. Teaching their girls they really can do anything they want.

Such a big moment.

Nikki and Kati, you girls are rocking it. Keep going and inspiring your clients! If anyone is interested in learning more about the EE girls and their work visit their website. It's incredible and I promise you'll want to meet them and pick their brains!

Behind the Scenes~A Look at 2010 {Toledo Photography}

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

I know everyone is reminiscing about 2010 but I figured why not? Better throw my two scents in! We had a seriously amazing year. Got to photograph clients again as well as photographed many new clients! I got to cuddle lots and lots of babies, play with some cute and funny kids and photograph some amazing couples at their weddings πŸ™‚ That is just the beginning though. When we photograph an event we then bring the photos to our office computers and edit them. Editing takes double the time of the event. After that there are products that need to be created (albums etc) and that’s where Andrea comes in πŸ™‚ I’m sure you have all heard me speak of Andrea! She is our amazing in house graphic designer! She takes our photos and arranges them and makes them look even better!  I figured she needed a shout out considering she made 2010 look awesome. Here’s a look at some of my favorite album spreads Andrea created this year:
