WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER, WIFE & MOMMA

meet bethany

My photography reflects the way I live—minimal fuss with an emphasis on what truly matters. I want to create something you will not only cherish, but that will be treasured by generations to come. Real, timeless moments that only happen once! I work with couples who want to invest in not just a beautiful wedding, but a beautiful, long marriage.

I’m an Iowa wedding photographer, wife and momma, saved by grace, with a love for simplicity. Most days you can find me in my favorite place— at home on our small Eastern Iowa acreage with my husband, Joey, and my kiddos, Evelyn and soon-arriving baby boy. I have a passion for all things creative and beautiful. Ask me to do something crafty or offer me a chance to get some good ‘ol fresh air and I'm in!

QUICK FACTS

I married Joey, my [almost] high school sweetheart after our sophomore year in college.

If it comes in purple,
I'll buy it in purple.

Banana Laffy Taffy are the best. Usually no one else likes those, so I'm easy to share with.

OXFORD ENGAGEMENT

GENUINE, REAL COUPLES

We had so many favorite parts...The photos were gorgeous and given to us quickly. The whole process was just so smooth. We cannot say enough how appreciative we are that Bethany took time to get to know us, our wedding plans, and the details of everything.

I looked longer than I should probably admit for a wedding photographer and I could not be more pleased with our decision. Bethany's style is so her own and oh so beautiful. She knows what she's doing and makes it enjoyable and comfortable. She gives great direction and you never feel out of place or unsure of what to do. If you're looking for a phenomenal, kindhearted wedding photographer,
Bethany is your gal. :)

She is without a doubt the best photographer I could have found,
we've even become and remained friends afterwards!

 Bethany's super easy to work with, she listens to YOUR wants , her pricing was reasonable for the industry and for the high quality of photos we received. She's up-to-date, friendly and heart warming. She traveled to us for the engagement session and the wedding, and is speedy in getting your pictures back to you. Honestly, I don't have anything bad to say! I will use her again and again!

Bethany has a way of making people feel comfortable in front of a camera

A couple things really stood out to us during our experience with Bethany. Bethany has a way of making people feel comfortable in front of a camera, which is evident looking at her photographs. She was also accommodating. We were running behind schedule the day of our wedding and she helped rearrange our timeline and transition smoothly so that we were able to get all the pictures we wanted.
