I'm Bethany - a big cheeked mountain lover and light chaser, based in Boone, North Carolina. When I'm not editing or emailing, you can find me jogging through Moses Cone, binging on true crime, and snuggling my husband Scott. We have two black and white pups, Achilles and Jax, and together, we live and play in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Throughout our engagement and wedding we have been continuously blown away by Bethany's talent! She not only captures amazing moments and quality photos, but she makes it a very comfortable process. As someone who is a bit self-conscious, she made every moment enjoyable and put us at ease in front of the camera. I loved seeing her photos that capture the connection between two people, instead of forced poses. I am so grateful I decided to book Bethany to capture this huge milestone in our lives, because her photos are what I have to remember those moments and I couldn't be happier with them!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about all of our photos, the compliments I receive, and the ease of working with Bethany!"
"Bethany is an absolute treasure! I was definitely nervous going into our engagement session, as we had never had professional pictures taken before, but she made us feel so at ease. She didn’t even bat an eye when we showed up unexpectedly with our dog! She was a joy from the minute we met. Her kind heart shines through our photos and I will truly cherish them forever. Our photos feel and look so genuine. I love them! She is everything you want and need in a photographer, and I am so glad we found her."
"Bethany Barton was the perfect photographer to capture our vow renewals. Everything about our experience was incredible. She knows how to capture the moment and make people glow in her images, with a stunning view. She was born for this!"
"Bethany truly was the BEST wedding photographer we could have ever hoped for and then some. Seriously- the absolute best. From the very start, she was approachable, honest, and excited to be a part of this big day. You could tell that every bit of advice that she gave or question she asked was born out of experience and really wanting what was best for you and your significant other. I'm not going to lie, both my husband and I are HORRIBLY awkward in front of a camera lens but looking at our wedding photographs you can't even tell. Within the first ten minutes of having a conversation with her, I was completely and totally comfortable. It was cold and wet from the fog that filled the sky, but we didn't even notice because she had us laughing and having fun the whole time. If you're looking for a calm, caring, and creative presence that is bound to capture all of the joy that you're feeling on your big day, booking Bethany is a must. I am so happy that we made the decision to book her because the memories she captured for us are those that we will cherish forever. Thank you for everything you did!"
"Hands down, Bethany is worth every penny (and more)! She photographed our longggg overdue engagement session. We’ve never had professional pictures taken but, she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She is very easy to work with and attentive to all your needs and questions. The quality of her work is 10/10! I highly recommend Bethany!"
