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.

An Elite Event {Toledo Event Photography}

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

Elite Events designed the Toledo Library's 175th anniversary party! It was about the most spectacular event I've ever been too. I don't even know what to say, so I'll let the photos speak for themselves!

The Dance Factory {Toledo Photography}

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

So Kati called me and wanted some photos done of her competitive dance team. Kati is the owner and teacher at the Dance Factory in Perrysburg. I gotta say I was beyond impressed. One her girls followed direction so well, and two somehow their bodies can do these crazy things! I mean sometimes they look superhuman! It was so fun and honestly I have been a huge fan of dance photography since college. I used to rent books from the library that were just photos of dancers doing crazy things (well crazy to me) and would pour over them for hours. I was so excited to get to try my hand at this kind of photography!

toledo photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I love I was able to freeze them in time. You can really see the expressiveness and feel the emotion just from one movement!

LOVE the hair! Shows how fast she is really going!

toledo photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

She is really flying that high! I couldn't believe it!

toledo photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

My favorite two moves I saw. I think it's the form they are in as well as the elegance.

Kati, thanks so much for having me out. I had a blast. Girls, hope your competition went well! You all looked fantastic and thanks for putting up with me and allowing me to see all your moves over and over! I just couldn't believe my eyes! Ladies, if you are looking for a dance academy for your kiddos you can't go wrong with the Dance Factory! At least check it out and see what you think. Kati is a fantastic teacher πŸ™‚

Um…YEH {Toledo Photography}

Monday, June 20th, 2011

ok so I'm sure some of you saw the photoshoot of Tabitha and me. We asked JEM photography to do a session of us so we can have some updated photos for the new website (yes a new website coming soon!). Gotta say Emy and Jenn rocked out our session and this is what they had to work with…..

Yeh….Big Shout Out to JEM for making me look waaay better than I do in real life. This is one of their shots and oh how it contrasts the rest of what they gave us! They made us look like supermodels when in reality…my face generally looks like this!

Photo copyright JEM photography. Girls, thank you for your passion for photography and sharing your talent (and stretching your talent on me in particular!) and..for letting us eat cake! So glad we made some new friends!

Welcome Emma and Mini Me {Toledo Photography}

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Hey Everyone. I am sooo happy to introduce our newest photographer here at Wellspring Photography, Emma. She rocks. She has red hair (yeh that definitely scored her interview points), she loves cake (we'll see how much! I'm really unsure if anyone loves cake more than me. Tabitha might argue but really….I eat it more!) AND she is laid back. We liked her work and were excited that she wanted to be part of our team. You'll be seeing a lot of her around! For her first session with us she photographed my baby sister (I say baby but we are 18 months apart) and her boyfriend Matt. I call my sister Mini Me and duh why not? She looks so much like me only she's a mini. I realized she might be my only sibling I haven't photographed? Maybe my brother Chris but I'll solve that this summer! I think Emma did a smashing job. Yes I am feeling British….must be all this Mini Me talk. Here is my cute sister and her 'italian' boyfriend:

Yeh, she's dang cute…and he ain't to shabby himself.

I think Emma's style meshes very well with our brand. I am excited to see her grow with us!

toledo couples photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

LOVE these two as well as the next two. Such different feelings conveyed:)

toledo couples photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Just have to say my Mini Me is GORGE!

toledo couples photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

My FAVORITE that Emma captured. Loving this girl's eye! I also took some….didn't want to make our newbie do ALL the work!
 Mine are below:

He knows he's studly…and it's not just me saying that. He actually knows it.

I like her easy smile, she has many MANY expressions but that's one of my favorites. I think because it's fleeting. For y'all who think I'm…..boisterous…she is times 10 πŸ˜‰ That girl tells one crazy story.

toledo couples photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Matt and Mini Me, thanks for coming out and letting us boss you around for work stuff πŸ˜‰ So glad you guys got to meet Emma and blog readers I was happy to introduce her work to you! You will all love her and I can't wait to show her off (I know she's not my new pair of shoes but still!)

Other news, I have one session spot left for the first week of June so if you want it grab it! Also Tabitha and I got OUR photos taken today by some rad girls over at JEM. More updates on that later. Also I am starting a series tomorrow. Check back if you like!

Nazareth Hall Bridal Show {Toledo Wedding Photography}

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

 

So I actually made it to this bridal show….no giving birth this time πŸ™‚ It was great meeting so many awesome couples and hearing the amazing and creative ways those boys asked their girls to marry them! We really did meet a lot of nice people. Someone actually said to us "You must work so hard and pay attention to details, just look at your booth! It’s so creative and you can see the work you put into it" That made our day! Putting the booth together is a lot of work (as my hubby and dad can attest to) Tabitha and I have big ideas…that usually require men to haul things in for us. Take a look for yourself:

toledo wedding photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Yes..those are trees in the background…Tabitha’s big idea this year. I thought she was crazy..I thought how are we going to bring trees inside? Once I saw them I was sooo happy she thought of them!

It was great meeting new friends and seeing some existing friends as well as meeting all those starry eyed brides dreaming of the most romantic day of their lives! I seriously love my job! It’s so awesome! A big thank you to the Nazareth Hall staff! They did a great job setting the place up and helping vendors and brides alike!
