Bethany Bloem Photography

hey, hello!

I'm Bethany

I'm a traveling wedding and elopement photographer in Portland, Oregon. I travel often and also love shooting engagements and portraits!

I'm here to capture your adventures, your love story, and your most intimate moments. I believe in the power of love and that every couple deserves to have their love artfully documented with photos that celebrate it flawlessly. The laid back and modern adventurers are my cup of tea.

I strive to bring out those authentic, quiet, normally unseen moments of intimacy. I use soft guidance and cringe worthy dad jokes to bring the vision to life and (hopefully) bring on the laughs.

Portland Elopement Photographer


Your wedding day is about you.

I shoot in a way that is non intrusive and allows your story to unfold in an authentic, organic way. But I will also tell you where the best background is, where the best light is coming from and how to position yourself so I can capture you at your most flattering angles. 

I believe in loving with your whole heart, living simply and that dogs are truly a persons best friend. I believe that pretty photos of you and your bridesmaids are awesome,  but so is your grandmother drinking wine from the bottle with your best friend. I'm here to capture this and everything in between. 

Every wedding boasts a color palette that jives with your individual style. For me, photography is the same. I have refined my color palette to compliment both of you and the nature that surrounds us. Using warmth and earth inspired tones to bring out the best details means more little moments captured and more of the story being told.

Working with Bethany was truly such a unique experience! It was clear from the start that she truly cared about her clients and making sure they received what they wanted. Not only did I get what I expected, but even beyond that

Bethany did such a fantastic job at making us feel more natural and comfortable in front of the camera. She helped us get into sweet positions that photographed really well and took us to numerous locations she had already scouted. It was 28 degrees and she was gloveless and working with some difficult lighting but did a splendid job! We love our photos. Thank you Bethany!

She showed up with a great attitude and terrific smile! Easy to work with and got the job done even with limited time. Our photos were exactly what I was imagining and that’s why I chose her.
