Hello! I am a Los Angeles based wedding and lifestyle photographer! I received by BFA in theater at the University of Southern California, and am continuously inspired by people and telling their stories.
My career began as the official tour photographer for Maroon 5. I lived on a tour bus and documented 34 shows around the US! I went on to tour with One Direction, Charlie Puth, and most recently Trevor Noah.
With over a decade over experience, what drives me today is preserving real moments of joy and love. It is my true passion to make others feel seen and celebrated! My style can be described as colorful, joyful, and full of life! My goal is for my couples and clients to relive the day through their images. I am obsessed with beautiful light, especially during golden hour. I am known for not only capturing the key portraiture, but the in-between candid moments. I have been lucky enough to photograph couples around the world, and have been featured in Brides, Style Me Pretty, and the Knot.
When I am not taking pictures, you can find me walking around West Hollywood with my golden retriever Poppy by my side. I cannot wait to hear from you and bring your story to life!
Betsy is an absolute dream to work with. Not only is she incredibly talented and professional, she also has the ability to make anyone comfortable in front of the camera, which is a skill all on its own. As a social media agency, our clientele has a range of varying aesthetics, creative styles and personality types, and Betsy is always willing and able to adjust to meet the needs of the client. I often have brands, business owners and celebrities reach out to me after we bring Betsy to a shoot to thank us and request her for all future shoots. Betsy is the type of person you just want to be around and brings positivity, joy and creativity to every shoot.

Betsy listens closely to my client's needs and goals while contributing her own creative perspective, which simply creates magic. She is so flexible and easy to collaborate with, and she has been an integral part of expanding my client's social media presence.

Betsy is one of the most talented photographers I’ve ever worked with - I can’t recommend her enough. She’s traveled around the world to shoot events for my brand, Jouer Cosmetics, in Capri, Cabo San Lucas and Ojai. Not only is she an absolute pleasure to spend time with, she makes everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, even the most timid. Her photos always deliver - whether capturing a special place setting, a product of flat lay or most importantly people looking their best. She will always be my first choice and first recommendation.
-Christina Zilber, Jouer Cosmetics
SUCH a joy working with Betsy for my wedding weekend. My family and friends absolutely adored her. She made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Our wedding photos are beautiful. Betsy did a phenomenal job capturing the overall energy and love we felt all weekend. It also doesn't hurt that she's fun, vibrant, personable and genuinely kind.

I cannot speak highly enough about how incredibly detailed, confident, and professional Betsy is as a photographer. When it came time for our wedding, it only made sense to fly Betsy to Greece to shoot us on our big day. From the moment our guests arrived in Europe, she remained a constant fly on the wall, capturing candid REAL MOMENTS of joy and excitement between our friends and family. When I saw the images I was at a loss for words. Those pictures were also picked up by BRIDES MAGAZINE. In the end, any bride should consider herself lucky to have Betsy behind the lens on her wedding day.
Betsy is a ray of sunshine! She is one of the most positive and wonderful people I have ever met, and she brings endless joy to your big day. Her talent is the stuff of legends. She has an unbelievable eye and a knack for capturing the most incredible moments. Hiring Betsy was the easiest and BEST decision I made while planning my wedding.

As a model, and my husband a photographer, we had high expectations for our wedding photographer! We wanted someone professional and friendly who just GOT IT. Betsy went above and beyond our expectations. She was so extremely friendly and warm and made us feel comfortable right away. She dealt with family members with the utmost respect. She was everywhere we wanted her to be without us even noticing. I felt the most beautiful that day and I’m so happy Betsy captured not only the physical but the emotion of the day with her work. Exquisite photos that we will cherish FOREVER. BOOK BETSY NOW!!

Betsy was absolutely incredible! She was such a welcome addition to our wedding. She made the entire photo-taking experience extremely calm, easy and fun. She never got flustered even though we had a huge wedding party and about a million family members. She was a delight and a ton of other people made note to me about how lovely she was. The photos turned out amazing. She took SO many, so we had a ton to choose from. She caught every perfect moment :) We were so lucky to have her there to capture the best day of our lives.
I am so beyond happy that we chose Betsy to shoot our wedding and I am recommending her to everyone. Even one of my bridesmaids said she's 100% hiring Betsy when she gets married because of how amazing she was and the beautiful work she did with our photos. Really don't look any further, you will be so happy if you hire Betsy!!

Betsy is such an incredible person and artist, and we were so lucky to have her there on our wedding day in New Mexico! She is a consummate professional who cares deeply about her work, and about bringing your vision as a couple to life. Her easy to fill out questionnaire made sure we were all on the same page. Coordinating with her for our destination wedding was seamless, and she was just a warm and calming presence throughout the entire event. Not to mention, the photos are absolutely stunning!! Hire her, because she WILL book up!

We LOVE Betsy! She is professional, and incredibly passionate about her work. She made us feel confident and comfortable by directing and encouraging us along the way. We couldn't be happier with the pictures! My bridesmaids called her our "hype woman" because of the amount of energy and passion that she brought on the day of. She is a joy to work with, and I hope to work with her again in the future!
