    I, Anne Gattilia, am the owner and lead photographer of Elegant Edge Photography.  When I was asked to select only one wedding to feature in this post, I really had to stop and think what makes each of the weddings that I shoot special to me.  The experience is what I always think back on, and Jacqueline and Stephen’s wedding was a particularly special one. We kept an eye on the weather all week leading up to the wedding, and the forecast was just rain, and lots of it.  I was sure to prepare my couple with the possibility that it would not be the beautiful day that every couple hopes they will have.


    The morning of the wedding, that possibility became a reality; it was pouring and the radar showed no hope of a break.  My couple (as well as the bridal party and all of the guests) took it all in stride.  Dresses were hiked up when necessary, and all the splashing through puddles was done while smiling and celebrating.


    The church was beautiful and so perfectly lit that it was simple to shoot the ceremony.  Because we knew that the venue had very limited indoor or outdoor locations to shoot formals, we decided to see how creative we could get with the formals in the church.  We used the lighting and the lines of the church to create many types of dynamic images, all while it poured outside.

    Minutes before arriving at the venue, the sky cleared into a beautiful blue sky.  Since there were few options of locations to shoot there, we headed to the parking lot on the water to see what we could get, and I could not have been happier with how the photos turned out.


    The bridal party took it all in stride, and was willing to take some time before the reception to get the images done.  My favorite shot from the entire day was of Jacqueline and Stephen being silhouetted in front of the perfect sky.


    So yes, I loved the photos from this wedding but just as importantly I loved the experience.  My couple took the whole day as it was, and made it a great experience for their friends and family, and also for my assistant and me.

    Hi! I'm Bethany Miller!

    I thrive to not only capture special memories in someone's life but to truly create a story that unfolds their most cherished days. Our work is a photojournalistic approach to the moments that make up our life. The last two years on my photography journey have been a whirlwind! This is so much more then just a business, it's truly a movement in celebrating life!

    Often, clients describe Bethany Miller Photography to be an "experience". We feel so blessed to have clients that cherish our work, as much as we cherish them. So, our approach to business is simple, "Let Us Tell Your Story"

    We want to catch the hidden glances between the bride and groom on a wedding day, watch our Teen and Senior High School Model Crew feel a bit more beautiful as they get professional hair and make-up done for their portrait session, capture the simple smiles of a newborn and laugh alongside growing families who love to laugh together. Ultimately, we want to create memories, in a way that is authentic to our clients.

    Over the past few years, I have found an incredible balance between shooting my own sessions and creating friendships within the photography community. I have learned more by teaching others and leaving my ears open to incredible business owners, then I ever could have even imagined. COMMUNITY IS EVERYTHING and I have met some of the most incredible photographers and business mentors through embracing it. Through these sessions, I was encouraged to follow my heart with shooting Seniors. This year has been INCREDIBLE as we launched our fabulous Teen and Senior Model Crew filled with incredible High School students who love laughing, having fun and creating memories!

    Earlier this week, we had the privilege of shooting a BEAUTIFUL High School Senior who is part of our Senior Model Crew and this was quickly one of my favorite sessions to date. She is already incredibly gorgeous on her own, but reading all of the positive comments she received from friends and family after she posted her sneak peeks is something I will never forget. It was assurance, that creating those ever-lasting moments are worth so much more then just photos. It's self-worth, beauty and heightened confidence!
