REAL BETHANY MCNEILL COUPLES

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER, WIFE & MAMA

meet bethany

So, if you’re ready to invest in not just a beautiful wedding, but a beautiful, long marriage. Keep on reading!

I spend a good chunk of my time capturing the lives of others, but that’s not all! On a daily basis you’ll find me at home on our small Eastern Iowa acreage with my family. I’m a full-time mama (it’s pretty much another job!) to my kiddos, Evelyn and Rowan, and wife to my hunky husband and almost high school sweetheart, Joey. 

I’m a quiet introvert, but meeting new couples and capturing their story brings my heart so much joy. I believe in simplicity—minimal fuss with an emphasis on what truly matters. Wedding planning shouldn’t be a big stress ball. It’s a day you only get to celebrate once, so you should get to enjoy it! I photograph the real, timeless moments you never want to forget!

Hey there, Beautiful Bride! I’m Bethany and I’m so stinkin’ excited to get to know you! Here’s a little about me! 

quick facts

Get to know me

If it comes in purple,
you bet I’m getting it in purple.

Tornado watch or warning?
Remind me the difference AGAIN?

When I was little I wanted to be a horse.
Yep, a horse.

Banana taffy is the best taffy.

Ice cream’s my favorite. And so are Raisinettes and Milk Duds and…

DIY everything.

Jesus is my Savior.
I strive to love like he does.

Driving to weddings is my jam time.
Bring on Apple Music!

A MARRIAGE MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN YOUR WEDDING

So, you’ve planned the most gorgeous day. Am I right? You guys are madly in love. But, what happens after the excitement? Let’s be honest, you’re probably going leave those dirty clothes on the floor. It’s only a matter of time. I capture the way you feel on your wedding day. That way, when you’re feeling less than perfect, you can look. See the smiles and the joy you felt at the beginning. Rekindle the flame. You’re building a legacy with your marriage. One day your grandkid is going to see your wedding photos and not be surprised, because grandma and grandpa still love each other like they did back then.
