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.

You’re My Best Friend

Monday, July 19th, 2010


Thursday I got to spend some time with my niece Em and her best friend M to do photos, which we’ve been trying to organize since last summer! Em & M are like 2 peas in a pod: always talking a mile a minute and giggling a lot because everything is funny with your BFF. These two are smart, talented, funny, very sweet and beautiful (and WAY less awkward than I was at 14!)

Here are some of my favorites from our session…

Hey everybody, Tabitha here again with pics of the ladies from Soul Sister Radio, a brand new radio talk show in the Toledo area. Carrie & Letha contacted me about doing photos of all the co-hosts for their upcoming website and of course I jumped at the opportunity.I’m SO happy I did- it was really wonderful to get to know them all. They are each very different from the next- but all are kind, intelligent, funny, beautiful, and the laughs just didn’t stop:)

So, here they are…

A Colorful Wedding

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

Hi everybody, this is Tabitha again, and I have some of my very favorite images to share with you from last weeks wedding. It was SO hard to only pick 9-there were SO many great pics to choose from.

On Saturday there was a chance of rain, but we had nothing but beautiful blue skies all day long! I had so much fun with the bride and groom and their friends and family-what a wonderful wedding!

Well some of the little ones in the world call them sunflowers! 🙂 Who didn’t spend their childhood picking dandelions and making wishes on them? This little one really really loves "sunflowers"!
