The number one thing I want you to remember? This is your day. You can do whatever you want. Ditch the boutonnieres, wear a reception dress, get ready together in the morning. Whether you are keeping it traditional or taking it to a complete other world, I will be there to make each moment last forever.
I currently only take on 5 wedding couples per year to make sure my couples get a highly-individualized and special experience.

This is where you will undoubtedly have lots of fun. With tips in hand about what to wear, where to go and more, you'll be rocking this session out. You won't have to worry about posing or what to do with your hands; I've got you covered.
There will be a lot of eskimo kisses, intimate moments, but also lots of laughter and dad jokes! You'll receive your photos back quickly to get those announcements and save the dates out, as well as show off how good you look to all your friends and family.
You've got a whole support system built-in with the BMP wedding experience. Need help finding vendors? You are now hooked up! Not sure about the timeline? Tag me in. We will have open communication about all your important details , big and small, so that nothing is missed. You will have a complete timeline to base any other time decisions off of like hair and makeup, when family needs to arrive for photos, and when the party starts!
On your wedding day, you will be able to always look to me and know I will be there for you. You can relax knowing the timeline is there to fall back on. You have the ability to be present in your celebration. You will have the comfort of knowing I am there to capture everything in a way that is sure to stand the test of time and still make you smile 20 years later.
You will get to scroll through every moment of your wedding in your own private online gallery. Grab a glass of wine and make a date night out of it and reminiscing about your favorite parts of the day. Your photos will make you remember parts of the day you may have even forgotten about. It's such a fun experience! I can't wait to see which ones you pick out for your wedding album, so you can flip through it for years to come!
Bethany was super calm and flexible from start to finish, which was something we really appreciated during that time. On our wedding day she had a way of seeming as if she wasn’t there and blending into the group, but also captured every moment and was extremely helpful with little details that weren’t necessarily her job. From previous conversations she knew that my husband and I didn’t want to spend our day taking posed photos so she got right to the point and directed us well so we could really focus on enjoying our day. She got our photos back to us quickly and the way she organizes them for you is incredible! We are truly in love with every photo she took! We feel really lucky that we were able to work with Bethany and hope we can again in the future!
Bethany is incredible! Our engagement and wedding pictures are both more beautiful than we could have imagined. Bethany and her assistant were so patient and made us so comfortable throughout our wedding day and assured us we had plenty of time to get all of our pictures taken. They obviously know what they're doing and are very good at what they do. Matthew and I along with our parents could not be happier with how our pictures turned out as well as our experience. Would recommend Bethany in a heartbeat!!
When we decided to do a destination wedding, we weren’t sure what to do for a photographer. We originally signed to go with someone with all the glitz and the glam, and had an awful experience. We met with Bethany and instantly realized just how important personality and passion was in a photographer. We knew this was exactly who we wanted to travel with us and our family and capture our destination wedding. We couldn’t have been happier with her ideas, flexibility, optimism (even when it was raining), professionalism, and willingness to always get us the shots we wanted. I would recommend Bethany to anyone whether; you’re doing a local wedding with lots of friends, or traveling to an obscure island with your family members! We always felt comfortable and knew she’d capture our special moments for us to enjoy for a lifetime.
We absolutely LOVED having Bethany as our wedding photographer! Initially when deciding on a photographer we were back and forth between a few, but Bethany was so helpful and accommodating to our requests. We had a lot of little details we wanted photographed on our special day and Bethany captured these all perfectly! Not only did our photos turn out AMAZING, but Bethany was such an awesome presence on our big day! She is fun to have around, creative, kept everyone on schedule. Bethany is a wonderful photographer, with amazing talent, who pays attention to details (both with photos and accompanying to the couple). My husband and I are SO in love with our photos, and would highly recommend Bethany as your wedding photographer!

a few things you should know...
After shooting over 100 weddings that span from Minnesota and Wisconsin, over to Germany, and back down to Jamaica; I have been quite a few places and learned a lot about what makes the perfect wedding day for my brides for destination weddings!
Are you available for travel?
"I truly cannot say enough good things about Bethany. After I got engaged, I immediately contacted Bethany. Asking her to be our wedding photographer was the easiest (and best) decision I made during the entire wedding planning process."
