Valerie Knopik "So, a month ago on a very cold but very beautiful morning, I had the great fortune of working with Bethany O Photography. I was terrified. Seriously terrified. I had no idea what to expect and no real plan. And my bare feet on that 32 degree day almost froze off....but that's another story.   Bethany assured me that many felt terrified before having photos taken and that she would make me feel comfortable. She did. She was awesome. Did I say awesome? She was amazing, brilliant, lovely and a TOTAL ROCK STAR BEHIND HER CAMERA! We had a blast and she had me laughing throughout the entire shoot.  I am honored to have walked away from this experience not only with some brilliant and magical photos but also with a brilliant and fantastic friend.  Thank you Bethany! xoxo”

Angela Ciresi-Caliri "Over this past summer, we had family portraits done.  It was important to me to choose the right photographer.  One that would capture the personalities and beauty of my family.  We chose the wonderful Bethany O'Connor.   Bethany did an amazing job "capturing our inner light."  She has a great, easy-going personality and loved working with our girls.  The way her pictures turned out made them a joy to purchase.  She was extremely accommodating and chose the perfect location to take the pictures emphasizing that the location was merely just a backdrop to capture "us."  The whole session took only about an hour.   When I met with Bethany the following week I was bursting at the seams!  Each picture was better than the next.  Her price range was fair and she worked with us emphasizing the discounts available with ordering in bulk.  Out of that one sitting I was able to use her prints on a wall in my family room, both my office and my husband's, a professional headshot for my business, a holiday card and presents for both sets of grandparents!  We loved working with Bethany and we will definitely choose this wonderful woman to take our pictures in the years to come, as should you!"

Dave Ursillo "My go-to photographer captures not only the photos I'm hoping for, but the energy, personality and professionalism that is truly challenging to capture in photographic form. I trust Bethany to get this job done every time--this, not to mention how much fun it is to work with her. Easy, relaxed, professional and proficient!"

Alexandra Jaye Johnson "I *love* Bethany and I had such a blast shooting with her. She makes it super easy, fun and natural. It was the best photo shoot I've ever done! She did a brilliant job at capturing my essence and bringing it to life. And, the moments she capture with my family are priceless. I smile with gratitude every time I look at them. She's not only extraordinary at what she does she is an amazing human being with a huge heart. She's the type of person you just feel good being around. :) I highly recommend her and I look forward to shooting with her again!"

Rebecca Dickson "This chick takes the pain out of photography. I despise having my photo taken, but it's a professional necessity. Bethany made it FUN and comfortable. I *almost* forgot the camera was even there. Thank you so much, Bethany!" xo

Bridget Greene "I've worked with a handful of professional photographers over the years and my experiences were good, but always impersonal; show up on a certain date, at a certain time, follow a bit of direction and smile for the camera. So when I booked one of Bethany's "Mommy and Me" photo shoots with my daughter, I expected the same experience. What I got was far superior in many ways, beginning with the first phone call. (…) Upon arriving on the day of the shoot, she was enthusiastic and so easy to work with. She made my daughter – who at nine months old was at her peak of stranger anxiety– smile and laugh. (I did a lot of that, too). (…) The end result exceeded my expectations. She delivered truly stunning photographs that left me with the difficult task of narrowing down my choices. Bethany is an artist whose photographs capture beautiful moments. I'd recommend her work to anyone. You can expect professionalism, effective communication and, most importantly, gorgeous photographs."

Kathleen DiChiara "Bethany took such extra attention and care to understand who I am and what the world should know about me - what matters to me; what makes my soul shine.  The day of my photo-shoot followed a busy week and hectic time and I was not feeling my best, certainly not my most glamorous.  I soon learned that didn't matter.  She seeks to photograph beyond the surface.  In fact, working with Bethany reminds me of a quote by author Pablo Neruda - 'As if you were on fire from within.  The moon lives in the lining of your skin.'  Bethany is looking for your light and she'll find it.  We all have it, even when we dim it down."

Jesse Dwiggins  "I've had the pleasure of working with Bethany three times and counting.  Her photos are magic; she has a unique ability to capture memories, inner light, and intimate moments that you would never otherwise see.  It is thrilling to be surrounded by her own light and energy as she works.  She is professional, organized, and skilled.  She herself is captivating!"
