Hi, I'm Bethany!

and This is my Why...


Two years ago I married my best friend and husband Nathan.


So I was right there where you are Now!


Trying to plan the Perfect day and wanting a vendor team that would be there for us to make it happen!


Being a photographer/videographer myself, our photos and video meant Everything to me and I spent Hours searching for the Perfect team that had my desired Look, captured my ideal Style and most importantly... would fit Comfortably and Seamlessly into my Dream Day!


I didn't think this would be too big of a hurdle to tackle, how hard could it be to find wedding vendors right? But as the days grew on I became increasingly worried that I would have to compromise on what I wanted and settle.


And then I found them...


Of course not everything about my day went perfectly! There were decorations that got mixed around, and it rained during our cocktail hour.


But looking back at my Photos and Video takes me right back to September 5, 2020, and reminds me again of all of the feelings of why it was one of the Best days of my Life!


What Split Rail Photography is today, was born from my own experience as a bride.


Which is why I consider your entire experience!


From "We're Engaged!" to "Happy Anniversary!"


And everything in between.

Do you want a photographer who understands you? Start the Conversation!

Want more details? Heres what the Experience looks like:


If I haven't said it enough times already, my biggest priority is your experience and comfort! Many of the people that I work with stress that they aren't used to getting their photo taken, and I get it, that's why I tend to find myself on this side of the camera! But those same clients walk away from their sessions saying 'that was way more relaxing and comfortable than they were expecting', or 'that it was even fun!' Hearing these things are what lights my heart up as a photographer and the exact reason why I do this! 

On a Wedding day:


I love love love love love weddings! (did I mention that I'm a fan of weddings?) Especially backyard, backwoods and farm weddings! My own wedding took place on my sisters farm, somewhere that was so special to my husband and I.

 

To me your wedding day shouldn't be about creating a perfect photo shoot, it should be about capturing the experience of the day and all of the parts that make it special to you. I'm the photographer that blends into the background when the imortant moments are happening, and then steals you away for a few short moments when you want or need to be alone and appreciate that, 'heck you just married your perfect person!' Most importantly I'm flexible!

 

Leading up to the wedding day and afterwards I'm here for you! I like to be as helpful and involved in the pre and post planning process as you would like. Everything about why I created Split Rail Photography was wanting my clients to have a different type of photography experience! To feel taken care of, heard and understood. To relax and enjoy themselves on the wedding day and have access to the highest quality print products and albums to enjoy forever, many of the collections include your album and design.


If this sounds good to you, then lets get started and create your perfect and magical dream wedding! 

At a Session:


To me photography is very personal, as it should be! Your photographs should be an expression of who are you as a person, a couple, a family or a business. My job is to capture your individuality, creativity, chemistry and most importantly your story!


Location: Whether it is a place that is special to you, or simply a beautiful setting that allows you to relax. Maybe it's the place where all of your passion and creativity lives. The location should draw the map of the beginning of your story.


Props are also an amazing way to add detail to a session. This can be something that is special or just something fun to add adventure and movement to your photographs. Or maybe it's an item that helps to elevate your story.


Lastly but most importantly; your session should be comfortable. If you aren't relaxed during your session, that will show in your photos. I want you to enjoy your session and have fun with it. For a couple it should be a romantic and adventurous date, and for an individual it should be a fun day out wit a friend (me)! Those perfect 'posed' images are not really my thing. Don't worry, I won't ever leave you high and dry! I guide, instruct, suggest and encourage, but the real gold are the photographs that I can capture between the poses so trust me, I know what I'm doing.


Your life is a story, your session should help to write the pages. If this sounds good to you, then let's get started and get writing!
