your photographer and creative partner-in-crime

Hi, I'm Bethany!

I'm into afternoon naps, cozy rainy days, big bowls of Thai curry and ice cream always! I've been into stories and documenting them as long as I can remember. I was that kid making the home videos, writing in my journal every day for years, and playing with the old family camera. It's in my DNA, and I am so honored each and every time someone books me to 

You can call me B!

I get asked if my name is Chara quite a bit. To clear things up nope. Chara is the greek word for "Joy."
When I thought about what I wanted my photography to emulate and how I want to approach couples weddings days; Joy kept coming up. It is my desire to create photos that capture those sweet moments of  emotions that last a lifetime. Not just a pretty picture, but a piece of art that documents LIFE.
(And Joy i's actually my middle name!)

 So what does "Chara" mean?

“Bethany made us feel SO comfortable on our wedding day. Like it was obvious that she would get the job done, (being professional, great quality shots and edits, duh look at her work!!) But greater than her professional abilities, was her ability to bring such PEACE to my day. Bethany brings with her a grounded presence that is contagious to the people around her. With ease, I watched her graciously communicate with everyone from the videographer, to the caterer, to my guests. It is rare today to find an artist that is not only excellent with their craft, but is excellent with people. Due to the hustle of the day, it is impossible to remember each moment in its entirety, but Bethany did more than just capture the most intimate and emotional photos of our day: she created an experience that makes us look back at our wedding and feel all the feels over and over again. I cannot recommend Bethany/Chara Photography any more, just hire her!!”
