Bethany Woelk

"I am a Cinematographer, Photographer, Editor, and Director whose passion lies in showing the beauty that God has created in the world. I desire to encourage people to notice the beauty in everyday things, to see the detail and intricacy of something that they walk past on a daily basis, with new eyes. I want to capture the elegance in the simple and the forgotten, connecting the world around us with artistry that can be discovered. Mostly, I want to tell the stories of people in the world … real, living, breathing, working, struggling, honest people. I aim to slow down and take the time to hear people, to feel their emotion, and to bring their stories to the world."

 

Bethany received her B.A. in Media Production from Calvin College in 2010. She also worked for Apple, Inc for almost 5 years, where she became certified in Final Cut Pro, Aperture, and Motion graphics programs.

Client Reviews

Bethany is a professional, enthusiastic, skilled and creative mastermind! Her infectious personality makes for a thoroughly enjoyable experience, whether on a photoshoot, video shoot or other event. Bethany has been my go-to photographer and cinematographer for my acting and modeling portfolio and has given me some of my favorite images and reels.
It is a pure delight to work with Bethany. Not only does she get to know the “you” in front of and behind the camera, she knows just how to capture your essence and individuality in a striking, unique way. Her expertise in natural lighting environments especially highlight her talent as a photographer and cinematographer.
Work with Bethany any chance you get. You’ll come away with stunning work and quite possibly, a wonderful new friend.

Bethany’s energy and passion make her an easy choice for selecting and because she is an amazingly talented photographer and incredible person I was SOOO Blessed to be able to work with her. She graciously did photos of my husband and our new puppy this week and made time in her busy schedule for us. She came with a great attitude and gave us direction but most of all made it fun.I just KNEW that the pictures would come out beautiful and capture the true love and energy she brought. Thank you SOO much for everything. We will be lifelong customers and friends

I hired Bethany to be my videographer for my wedding this Spring. When I watched the final product, I was in tears! It was beyond anything I could have hoped for. I am a very picky individual as I am in the design world myself, but I would not have changed a thing. She picked music that matched my style and captured details moments that completely captured the essence of the day. She even added hilarious credits/bloopers at the end with funny moments from every member of the bridal party! I will cherish it for the rest of my life.
I would highly recommend her to any bride looking for someone to capture their day!

Bethany was an absolute JOY to work with!!! I was nervous when we first started shooting but she instantly calmed my nerves. Before long, I was laughing and having a great time. (You can definitely tell by my photos! )
She is exceptionally talented, has a wonderful eye, and a hilarious personality. I STRONGLY recommend working with Bethany! I’ll definitely be coming back to her again and again.
