About

I built my business on 2 principles: grace and a kind heart.
Those are the two most important things my grandfather taught me about life.
That's where the Melvin comes in; my love for my grandfather and all he taught me.
I am who I am today thanks in a large part to him.

I love photography, things that are gold and teal,
searching antique shops for knick-knacks,
bowls of ice cream that never end, and giraffes.
I was born and raised in Marshall, MN and currently reside in Sioux Falls, South Dakota
with my husband Christopher and our furry sidekicks Riley & Murphy.
You'll see them make special guest appearances occasionally on my Instagram feed!

I have always been a lover of all things creative,
and have degrees in graphic design and English
from a small midwestern college, where my love of photography was born and flourished.

My clients become my friends, and I can't wait to get to know you!
Let me hear all about your love story.

Thanks, Bethany!

If you are looking to book the very best, Bethany is your girl. She is INCREDIBLE. Especially with all the chaos of having a June 2020 wedding and not knowing exactly how it would look, we were so thankful to have someone like Bethany. She was patient, understanding, and accommodating of the MANY plans we ran by her. With all the uncertainty in the world during this time, never once did we feel uncertain she wouldn't come, follow through, or do an amazing job. We can't tell you how much of a relief that was.

In addition to being a calming presence, she is just GOOD. Her photos are absolutely stunning and she really knows her stuff. She had super fun ideas for pictures and was really personable - our whole wedding party loved her!

Finally, as if she didn't do enough leading up to the day to help us feel prepared, we got ALL of our wedding pictures back on THURSDAY. Yes - FIVE days after our wedding! Amazing.

Hiring Bethany was hands-down the best investment we made during our wedding planning process; her skills and company are worth every cent. We are so grateful to have beautiful pictures we can enjoy forever.

Bethany was extremely easy to work with and made the whole process seem smooth. She made what was a chaotic day very fun and enjoyable.

5 Stars!!!

Bethany is amazing!!! I honestly could not imagine working with any other photographer. She went out of her way numerous times to make us feel incredibly special. After we made the difficult decision to postpone our wedding due to the pandemic, Bethany messaged me immediately to assure me that everything would be okay. She even organized a surprise styled shoot for us at the spot we got engaged! Her appreciation for even the smallest of details is evident in the quality of her work and in the way she interacts with her clients. Our photos were available almost immediately! I could not believe how quickly she was able to edit everything. HIGHLY recommend Bethany!!
