Bethany has the brilliant ability to capture the heart and soul of those she photographs. Her charisma and down to earth nature allow her to be at ease behind the camera, and as a result, her photos are vibrant and natural; she seems to effortlessly capture candid interactions and fleeting moments of silliness and fun. Bethany is a true talent – my family swears by Bethany Kruska Photography!

My Boyfriend and I worked with Beth on our Engagement Photos. We are both pretty camera shy and Beth was amazing at working with us to feel comfortable, laugh and have fun! She made us feel really comfortable and was amazing at capturing really natural moments. She could see amazing pictures just by walking around Brooklyn using the brick walls, architecture and natural lighting. We love how the photos really feel like us -Thanks Beth!

After an extensive search, my husband and I selected Bethany to photograph our six week old twin sons. Capturing the personality of one baby can be a challenge, but two is a true test of a photographer’s ability, and Bethany was amazing. Not only did the pictures turn out beautifully, but we had a blast in the process!
Bethany is incredibly talented – she has a very strong artistic and creative vision but was also responsive to our requests as well. She was patient, flexible and professional, and her sense of humor immediately put us at ease. She made the whole process fun.
We are using her photographs for our birth announcements, to decorate our home, and to send to family and friends. There were so many great photos that we honestly have had a really hard time picking which pictures to use. We could not be happier and enthusiastically recommend her services!

Bethany’s fun-loving and easy-going personality makes everyone around her comfortable and at ease which leads to great pictures. Although she doesn’t take herself too seriously, she has serious talent and great vision as a photographer. Her photographs are some of the best pictures of my family that I have.

I found Beth through a friend-of-a-friend reference, and hired her to take some pictures of my daughter with my parents while they were visiting. She was great about working with our schedule, providing suggestions on what to wear, and ideas for what to shoot. When we were foiled by an uninterested baby and rain, she very graciously offered to reschedule. I thought we got a few really nice photos out of the session, but that wasn’t enough for Beth! When I finally got around to rescheduling, we did a longer session with just the baby. It was an adventure in the park with a grabby baby… I was quite worried that we’d be in another “no good photos” situation. On the contrary, Beth delivered 20+ pictures (with baby food spills edited out) that I just can’t get enough of! She was a miracle worker!
I will absolutely hire Beth for photo sessions again in the future. She was easy to work with, very relaxed, and great at really capturing “us” in the photos. She was also fantastic about working with kids/babies – literally not afraid to get down in the mud to get a perfect shot.

Beth is amazing to work with – she not only captures beautiful moments but also makes you feel so comfortable in front of a camera. She is hands-down the most patient and caring photographer I’ve ever worked with making a potentially stressful situation really enjoyable. The photos and the experience was absolutely perfect in every way. I’d recommend Beth to anyone.

A friend recommended Beth to us and we were so happy to have her take our family photos. She captured some beautiful shots of our three children and she did so in a place that captured the outdoors and the city in the background. I am excited to use some of her photos for some photo projects and family Christmas gifts!
