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 Rowan. 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!
I have no doubt your wedding day will be gorgeous, but what happens after?
Marriage is a series of seasons, some more enjoyable than others. I create memories of one of the happiest days in your marriage. So, when things get rough, you'll always have a reminder of why you got married in the first place. Your marriage is an investment that leaves a legacy. One day your grandkids will look at the photos from your wedding day and say “wow, grandma and grandpa still love each other just like they did back then.”
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.
complete wedding experience begins at $2,700
Before we get into all the details, I want you to know that I know how stressful wedding planning can be and I've made it my mission to make this one part of the planning simple. I want you completely comfortable in front of my lens and I believe that only comes by getting to know each other! I don't just want to share a business transaction, I want to become a friend you can text about anything and everything wedding related or not! So let's meet somewhere cozy with your hubby-to-be to get to know each other and see if we'd be a good fit!
Alright friend, let's get the conversation started! I can't wait to hear more about you and all the lovely plans you have in place! Once I receive your message, I'll send all kinds of pretty details your way and we can get to know each other!
