Bethany Bloem Photography

 Wedding Photographer
Portland Oregon

hey, hello!

I'm Bethany

I'm a traveling Wedding Photographer in Portland Oregon. I also offer adventurous elopements and videography. I travel often and also love shooting engagements and portrait photography.

As a portland wedding photographer I'm here to capture your adventures, your special day, your love story, your happy tears and your most intimate moments of your wedding day. 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.

As a professional photographer, I strive to bring out those authentic, stress free, quiet, normally unseen moments of intimacy of your wedding day with my wedding photography. I use soft guidance and cringe worthy dad jokes to bring the vision to life and (hopefully) bring on the laughs.


Your wedding day is about you.

I shoot wedding photography and capture magical moments 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 your wedding photos and candid moments at your most flattering angles on your wedding day. 

I believe in loving with your whole heart, living simply and that dogs are truly a persons best friend. I believe that capturing pretty moment and 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 ceremony boasts a color palette that jives with your individual style. For me, wedding photography is the same. I have refined my color palette to compliment both of you and the nature that surrounds us to capture and create authentic moments on your special day. Using warmth and earth inspired tones to bring out the best details means capturing more little moments and more of the story being told. If you're looking to hire one of the best Portland Wedding Photographers, look no further than Bethany Bloem Photography.

Working with Bethany was truly such a amazing and unique experience! It was clear from the start that she truly was the best photographer who cared about her clients and making sure they received what they wanted. She is one of the best wedding photographers. Not only did I get what I expected, but even beyond that

Oregon Wedding Photographer

Olivia M.

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 to capture amazing images. It was 28 degrees and she was gloveless and working with some difficult lighting but did a splendid job! We love our photos. We hired the right wedding photographer. Thank you Bethany!
