Excellent photos and remarkable customer service

Bailey was fantastic throughout the entire wedding process! She extremely professional, helpful, and pleasant planning our wedding, on the actual wedding day, and coordinating our album and photo purchases afterwards. Her photos are absolutely beautiful, and have allowed us to re-live our special day months after it occurred.

Exquisite Photos and a Friendly Photographer

Bailey was just the best wedding photographer we could imagine. She spent AGES with us, she was extremely upbeat and friendly, she helped with all sorts of things during the wedding she didn't need to help with, and she captured gorgeous photos which perfectly bottled the spirit and feelings of the day. We're both very happy with the results and would recommend Beautiful Mess Photography to anyone.

We love Bailey!! So far, we have had our engagement shoot and it was great. We are not great at taking pictures and knowing what poses look good, but Bailey captured great shots. She is really great at getting candid photos and capturing moments rather than just posing. We don't want to spend our entire wedding day posing for pictures which is why we chose Beautiful Mess. Her philosophy of storytelling through photography fits perfectly with my fiance and I and we are excited for her to capture moments of our wedding day, not just pictures of it.
