for laid back couples that live in the moment




Hi, I'm Bethany! Lover of adventures, good people, and a great story. I am a wife and mom of three living in Toledo, Ohio. I love talking to and connecting with people. I’d love to meet up for coffee and hear all about your story! My goal is to be more than your photographer, I’d love to be your friend. 


I started Breakthrough Images Photography 13 years ago with a passion for capturing authentic moments. As cliche as it sounds, I LOVE love. I love the true connection between humans. I live for full laughs and happy tears. 


My photography is timeless and genuine. I want your gallery to tell an authentic story that captures the emotions felt in those moments. In 30 years, when you sit down to look through your  images, I want you to be taken right back to that day and to those feelings. 


Stories are what drive me. Each couple or family has a story and it's this unique and beautiful thing just for them. For a brief period in their lives I get to use photography to give those important moments back to them.

"I highly recommend Bethany at Breakthrough Images. She did an amazing job with our wedding pictures. I am so obsessed with them! Bethany is truly a joy and delight to work with. She is very professional, efficient, and creative! They all turn out amazing. There is not a bad one in the group. We are so thankful for her getting shots of all those special moments we don't remember or even knew she saw. She was never in the way of our guests. Saying I'm pleased with her work is an understatement. Her pictures speak for themselves. So thank you Bethany & Breakthrough Images from the bottom of our hearts. (And our mothers too!)"

"Bethany has done all of my lifestyle photos of my kids because she always gets the shot! I have 2 children and she has photographed them since they were newborns and then we did a session every 3 months for their first year of life, no matter how stressful a session can be with unpredictable babies she always manages to capture the perfect poses. I recommend her to everyone!"
