B Creative Inspiration started after discovering my desire and call to bring “God moments” and biblical places to life in photographs that create emotional and spiritual connections to the viewers.
Photography began as a hobby. For 10 years I served the church with my talent, while I earned a living through my successful corporate career. During that time, I took my first trip to Israel, which was a pivotal moment in my life. From that trip, and through my faith, I discovered another passion: my love for the Holy Land.
After 15 years in the corporate world, it was time to part ways and take a leap of faith into this new venture of bringing both “God moments” to life through my photography and creating awareness and appreciation for Israel and its people.
Some of my greatest memories since the start of this journey in 2016 have come from the incredible privilege of photographing influential faith-based tours and cruises for ministries and worship leaders such as: Turning Point with Dr. David Jeremiah, In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley, Insight for Living with Chuck Swindoll, Urban Alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, Pathway to Victory with Dr. Robert Jeffress, Precept with Kay and David Arthur, AnGel Ministries with Anne Graham Lotz, Calvary Albuquerque with Skip Heitzig, internationally-acclaimed worship artist Paul Wilbur, Gaither Vocal Band and best-selling Christian author and preacher Max Lucado
Traveling alongside various ministries and hundreds of pilgrims on life changing journeys has been such a joy for me. The most important thing for me on these trips is to capture images that speak to the soul in a meaningful way and my hope is that you will not only see the image but feel the image and be inspired!
“My family and I had the joy and privilege of traveling with Beth this summer to Israel and Jordan. From the very first day, she made you feel welcomed and comfortable. Her desire is to use her giftedness for God’s Glory! This is very evident in her capturing the heart behind every moment. She makes the Holy Land come alive as she tells His Story through the lens of her camera. Beth is not only an extremely talented photographer, she is a dear friend and sister in Christ. I highly recommend her for any “creative inspirations” that you may have in the future! The Tomb is still empty!”

“JAW-DROPPING ARTWORK…..that is the only way I can describe the pristine photography Beth captures. Sometimes the emotional essence of a photo is lost when it is developed and the picture is not actually worth the thousand words people say it is. Beth’s photos leave you speechless with awe-inspiring artwork and your throat raw with emotion. So grateful for the wonderful memories Beth captured on our Israel trip. I made several of them into canvas prints for my Mother’s Christmas presents, for which she proudly has on display in our home. Beth is using her God given talents to share with others about Jesus’ travels and the rich history of this land. Regardless of the denomination, the basis is all the same and these photos fill you with such hope of peace and unity in a war torn world. ”

“Beth is so kind and did a great job taking pictures on our trip to Israel. She captured every significant moment of our trip, and my mom and I are so thankful for that!! We are blessed to have these memories forever. Thank you so much for capturing every moment from group photos to candid pictures. We love you Beth!”
– Caitlen: The Prayer and Prophecy Israel Tour (Anne Graham Lotz – July ’18)
“Today I received from Beth the full photo set from my Israel tour with Paul Wilbur. In fact, this is my second trip to Israel with Paul and second time purchasing all of the images from Beth. On both trips I saw her work so hard to capture moments to be cherished for years to come and I want to attest to the quality of the photos and her attention to detail. The images range from historic sites to people’s expressions where you can almost feel what the person is thinking; she has a real knack for that! The photos I took myself pale in comparison to the quality of her photos. Furthermore, she labels images, so you know what it is or where you were.
To anyone with an opportunity to purchase Israel tour photos from Beth, I highly recommend you do so. You will not be disappointed – they are top quality. The images she delivers will allow you to see and remember your Holy Land experience. Memories fade but her photos help keep them alive. In fact, looking at the photos today brought me back to each location and I see some things I missed or forgot about! A lot of money is spent to go on a life-changing tour of the Holy Land so, I encourage you to invest in having lasting memories through these photographs that you can also share with your friends and family back home.”
– John: Traveler on The Hope Israel Tour (Paul Wilbur – Sept ’18)
“My husband John and I had the great privilege of traveling to Israel as part of Anne Graham Lotz’s “Prayer and Prophecy Tour” in July of 2018. What a wonderful spirit filled trip. We knew this would likely be a “once in a lifetime” opportunity. Having photos to share with friends and family was a must! As someone who loves photography, I knew I would want to get some great shots, but I struggled with the fact that I also wanted to immerse myself in this pilgrimage without feeling the pressure to photograph every event. Hearing about Beth Rubin’s photography package was just the answer! With Beth photographing the entire trip, I could fully participate – praying in the garden of Gethsemane, walking the Via Dolorosa, receiving communion at the garden tomb – and never worry about capturing everything with my camera. I took photos only when I wanted and still knew that every event would be beautifully and professionally preserved through Beth’s amazing work! Now I have lovely photos of my husband and I visiting all of these miraculous locations. And as a Bible Study teacher, I’m constantly using Beth’s photos to show others these breathtaking Biblical sites. Beth is a beautiful person with a passion for the Holy Land that shows in all her work. We will treasure her photographs for a lifetime!”

My wife, daughter, granddaughter, and I had the privilege of participating in the Precept Ministry’s Israel tour with Kay Arthur in May 2018. This was a very special trip involving three generations of women in our family. Photos would be very important to us on this trip, but we all had cameras and experience in photographing previous trips. We debated whether we really needed the services of a professional photographer. In the end, we opted to go with Beth; in retrospect, this was absolutely the best decision we could have made. We took a lot of good photos, but without the augmentation of Beth’s photos, there would have been huge gaps in our overall photo story. She is truly a gifted photographer who understood and captured the nuances of, not only the region, but each of us as we interacted with and responded to what we were experiencing. There were times when our cameras were off, and we were focused on the worship, the teachings, in prayer, or in times of reflection. We would have totally missed these times, but Beth was able to discreetly capture images of these very special moments. In short, Beth delivers an excellent product that fully captures the whole trip on its own. We integrated her photos with our photos, and her work greatly enhanced our overall photo record of an amazing trip that we will cherish for a lifetime. Not only is Beth a great photographer, she is a wonderful person whom we got to know and have fun with throughout our travels. She will take good care of you!

“Going to Israel was for me the trip of a life-time. I wanted to be able to soak in every second of this amazing opportunity as well as to be able to share it with my loved ones when I returned home. Beth’s being on our tour enabled me to accomplish both of those goals. Instead of worrying about capturing on film the details of the trip, I could focus entirely on being fully present in the moment. My family can tell you that I was like a child on Christmas morning when Beth’s photographs arrived! They were so beautifully done and captured every site so wonderfully that my family felt like they were there with me. Beth is so sweet and wonderful to work with and I just know you will be blessed from your time with her on your tour as well as from the fruits of her talents for years to come as you relive your journey through her beautiful pictures.”
– Rochelle: Traveler on Precept Ministries Israel Pilgrimage (Kay Arthur – May ’18)
“Beth Rubin was the photographer on our trip to Israel with Kay Arthur and Precept Ministries in May 2018. Beth related to us and others on the tour in a warm and friendly way. She fit right in like one of the guests on the tour. She captured the many holy sites and other places we toured with her photographic expertise. As you view the final product of her photography, it makes you feel like you are back there on site again in Israel! She also captured many of us in her photographs during our moments of reflection at holy sites like the Garden of Gethsemane and moments of celebration as many danced on the boat on the Sea of Galilee. She brings the tour to life for anyone who views her photographs and seals the memories of Israel again in the hearts and minds of those of us who she touched with her wonderful photography.”
– Deborah: Traveler on Precept Ministries Israel Pilgrimage (Kay Arthur – May ’18)
“My sister and I had always wanted to go on the Insight For Living tour to Israel with Chuck Swindoll. We went in March 2018, and were fortunate to have Beth on our tour. She was amazing! We didn’t need to be preoccupied with taking pictures and could absorb the moment, and know that Beth was capturing all the sites we visited, which were many. When I received the photos it was like touring all over again. Each photo is labeled as to the site we visited. The quality was exceptional. Her love for the work that she does definitely is reflected in the photos. I am so glad she is using her God given talent. What memories she captured of our trip. Thank you Beth!”
– Colleen: Traveler on Insight For Living Israel Pilgrimage (Chuck Swindoll – Mar ’18)
“In February 2018, I traveled to Rome and Israel and Beth was the tour’s photographer. I instantly knew that we were in good hands and would have wonderful pictures because she was a part of a similar tour I took in 2016, during which she was both friendly and the consummate professional. In February, as during the 2016 tour, it was a delight to talk with Beth. But more importantly, she once again showed her ability to capture “that” photo, the one that provides a visual expression of a touching, exciting or funny moment in time that you were will always remember–now that you have her photographs! Her photos are also comprehensive, as she captures the full scope of the tour. I highly recommend her and hope that she is a part of any future tour that I take. She is a blessing!
– Susan: Traveler on Calvary Albuquerque Rome & Israel Pilgrimage (Skip Heitzig – Feb ’18)
“Our trip to Rome and Israel with Calvary Albuquerque was among the most wonderful and inspirational adventures of our lives! The experiences will forever be etched in our memories but thankfully we will not have to rely upon just our memories because Beth Rubin, our amazing tour photographer, was with us every step of the way. She had a special way of capturing every blessed experience and all of our new found friends in Christ through the lens of her camera. Beth was an absolute joy! Her ability to know just where, when and how to best capture each special place and moment was, and continues to be, among the greatest blessings. The photos we purchased are a treasure and make complete all those that we took. Her skill and professionalism were beyond compare, but her mere presence with us was pure joy. Her big smile, words of encouragement and genuine concern for all of us made her an indispensable part of our family. Beth was not just our photographer – she is now, and will forever be, our friend. As we look at the many wonderful photos she took and relive the joy and excitement of our trip, we cannot help but smile thinking of Beth there with us, catching us in funny poses when least expected, and capturing the grace, beauty and majesty of God’s Holy Land. Truly, we can not imagine that trip without Beth, our consummate professional photographer. We recommend her to any group considering a professional photographer. You cannot do better than Beth Rubin! She is the best! “
– Rick & Carla: Travelers on Calvary Albuquerque Rome & Holy Land Pilgrimage (Skip Heitzig – Feb ’18)
“I can use two words to describe Beth Rubin. Beyond Professional! She LOVES what she does and it shows. She goes above and beyond to capture that precise moment and perfect picture. Photographs that show the emotion, whether joy, sadness or solitude, of the moment, and she does it well! Her passion for her trade is only surpassed by her love for Jesus. To be around Beth is to know that she loves the Lord and I’m so grateful to God that He placed her in my path, for it is a friendship that will last a lifetime. You can’t go wrong by having Beth Rubin with you on your Israel trip, or any other way you can have her assist you. She’s such a blessing and one of a kind!”
– Tim: Bethel Baptist Pastor (Bastrop, LA) (Dr. Gil McKee/Pastor Tim Post Israel Pilgrimage – Nov ’17)
“We recently traveled to Israel where, as you can imagine, there were many photo opportunities. Our tour group arranged to have Beth travel with us. Alleviating the stress of having to choose between taking pictures or being fully engaged in the tour was a wonderful option. This allowed us to enjoy all the sights, sounds and experiences knowing the photographic piece was taken care of. Shortly after we arrived home we received an email containing all those beautiful and amazing memories that Beth had captured during our travels!! Her talented eyes allowed her to catch all the perfect shots. What a blessing it was to have her on our trip. Knowing that she was preserving those memories we will cherish for a lifetime was PRICELESS!!”
– Sherri & Darrell: Travelers on “I Stand With Israel” Pilgrimage (Paul Wilbur/Scott Volk – Jun ’17)
“God has given Beth the ability to snap up life stories through her camera shutter. She carefully observed the people and events around her and captured precious moments for all of us during our recent trip to Israel. Her sensitivity to the movement of God in our lives led her to take breath-taking photos of our worship, our smiles, tears and our life-changing appointed times in The Holy Land. Thank you Beth Rubin, for sharing your ‘God gift’ with us.”
– Dawn: Traveler on “I Stand With Israel” Pilgrimage (Paul Wilbur/Scott Volk – Jun ’17)
“Israel was AMAZING and Beth did a fantastic job capturing every place through insightful photography so we could simply take it all in! I was traveling with my Dad, cherishing memories of my godly Mom, his precious wife, who just passed a few months prior to our trip. Beth took time to get to know our story, and we enjoyed getting to know hers. Her love for the Lord is displayed in her work with attention to details. She labeled her photos and made sure Dad and I were in meaningful pictures even when we didn’t realize she was taking them. What a blessing! I’ll never forget walking where Jesus walked, feeling God’s unending love and seeing the place where Jesus ascended to Heaven and will return! Thank you Beth, for allowing us to relive each day in Israel thru the vivid pictures you were led to take by the Spirit of Jesus in you. Powerful!”
– Teri: Traveler on UpWords Israel Pilgrimage (Max Lucado & Matt Maher – Mar ’17)
“Yesterday I received an invitation from Beth, to view the photographs she took on our tour to Israel last month (April 2016). I dropped what I was doing, grabbed my iPad, and quickly clicked into the link. For the next two hours I sat spellbound by the mastery by which Beth captured the variety of emotions a journey of this nature evoked. I was laughing one moment, and with a swipe of the screen, the next image had me in tears. She photographed groups, individuals, couples, crowds, sacred Biblical historical sites, nature, and cultural diversity with precision and interest. She has a sensitivity and a keen awareness of where and when to be in just the right place at just the right time. Her attention to detail makes every photo memorable in its own right. The photos are also very well organized which makes viewing them so simple. It is with all sincerity that I recommend Beth for any upcoming event. She will capture the occasion with professionalism and discretion so that you too will be able to relive those precious moments over and over again.”
– Nancy: Traveler on Turning Point Israel Pilgrimage (Dr. David Jeremiah & Michael W. Smith – Apr ’16)
“When we signed up for the photography package in preparation for our Israel trip, we had no idea we were signing up to receive such a blessing! The pictures are amazing and capture the story of our Holy Land experience better than we could have ever imagined. As we viewed the seemingly unlimited number of photos, we were able to relive the trip that Beth captured so beautifully through her God given gift of photography. It was amazing to see our trip unfold so vividly through these photos. She has such a talent and captured even the fine details of our trip. As perfect as the photos are, the best part was getting to know Beth. She is a beautiful person, both inside and out, a wonderful disciple for Christ who radiates with kindness and a desire to serve Him. Beth was a wonderful bonus to our trip!”
– Billy & Denise: Travelers on Turning Point Israel Pilgrimage (Dr. David Jeremiah & Michael W. Smith – Apr ’16)
“Beth has such a presence about her and I so enjoyed getting to know her on the trip. She shared wonderful insight as we toured and her knowledge really impressed me. Then when I received the photos she took, I was really blown away! She captured our feelings; our emotions. When I looked at the pictures I took, I saw the places I had been but when I looked at Beth’s work, I saw what I experienced while in the Holy Land and felt the same feelings all over again. Very powerful!”
– Stephanie: Traveler on the Orchard Community Church Israel Pilgrimage (Jan ’16)
“Beth Rubin is a wonderful photographer. She is very professional, producing quality images and she is so pleasant. She took amazing photos of our trip to Israel, capturing the essence of the experience. She is familiar with the areas we visited so she was able to make stunning photos of the scenery and also our group. It is so great that we have these photos of us as a couple in these special places. We highly recommend her!”
– Joel & Sharon: Travelers on the Orchard Community Church Israel Pilgrimage (Jan ’16)
“Beth Rubin is a true professional. It’s not just her skill behind the lens but also her eye for capturing the right moments that we’ve come to appreciate most. Beth did more than take photos at our Freedom Fest music festival, she helped us tell a story that will continue to shape our event for years to come.”
– Daniel Decker: Communications Director – Christ’s Church (Jacksonville, FL)
“Beth Rubin is not only an amazing photographer but an amazing person. She is incredibly hard working and a joy to be around. She has a way of capturing a story with such detail and emotion that truly makes her work outstanding! Her natural and professional approach, makes her very easy and comfortable to work with. Her photos have always exceeded my expectations! I would highly recommend her to anyone.”
