There is a little bit of prep that can easily be overlooked with the busyness of the day! Grab the checklist to make sure you don’t forget to capture a single detail on your wedding day!!

Although, it would be nice… the thought of adding one more BIG to-do to the list seems overwhelming. Photos take time and money, andddd there’s always the chance you’ll book on a bad hair day, right? :) 

But, I get it, sometimes those photos can feel a little out of reach. 

You want to have your wedding album sitting on your coffee table that looks like it was styled by Joanna Gaines, for your friends and family to flip through, but you want it to be nice… not just thrown together in your off time.

to have your own perfectly styled wedding album

You want to decorate your new home with photos of you and your loved ones, so that every time you look at them your heart flutters with joy.

to have your walls filled with photos that bring you joy

You have a Pinterest board of photos you wish were of you, but you have NO idea how to make that a reality.

to turn your dreamy Pinterest boards into your reality

You want the picture of how he gently smiles toward you and you want the one of you throwing your head back laughing. You want photos that *actually* look and feel like you (maybe even a little better)!

where your genuine love is captured ever so sweetly

You have been dreaming of these photos since you were a little girl

If you're anything like me...

I help brides, moms and seniors (just like you) have a high-end photography experience in Gilbert, Arizona and surrounding areas that is enjoyable and stress-free, so that they can have beautiful photos that they love and that leave a lasting legacy without ever feeling overwhelmed.

I believe that photos of you and your loved ones in this treasured season are too important to have to just give them up because of an overwhelming process or having another to-do on the list.

That's where I step in.

The Wedding Experience

choose your path

Crystal Kasperson

“The last time we had professional photos taken was at our wedding, I was a little worried that my husband wouldn’t be into it, but Bethie was so fun and easy to work with we both had such a great time, that the whole evening felt like a playful date night! And the photos turned out better than I could have imagined and my husband loved them!!”

Emma Preston

“Before booking with Bethie, I was worried about what we were going to wear to our session and if we would feel awkward in the photos. But Bethie made the whole experience amazing! She helped with posing & positive feedback throughout the shoot. It made us feel comfortable and able to enjoy being together, taking photos, and not being stressed. And I LOVE THE PHOTOS! They perfectly capture our love!”

Abby Carter

“Bethie did a phenomenal job of making a frazzled mom, a dad who doesn’t love getting his pictures taken, and two little kiddos look put together and relaxed!!!! She’s amazing! We love our photos and will cherish them for years to come!!”

Emma Bronson

“I had a Pinterest board of exactly how I wanted my senior photos to be (surrounded by desert wildflowers), I showed it to Bethie and she helped me plan my whole session and she even found the wildflowers! I couldn’t be happier with how the photos turned out… they were everything I was dreaming of! And Bethie was so fun to work with!! 10/10 would recommend!”

Alyssa Golden

“I had concerns about my kids not looking at the camera or being too wild to capture anything and she walked me through the whole process and calmed all of my fears! She offered outfit advice and incentive ideas to keep the kids happy. She was so patient and thoughtful and I felt so good going into the shoot. And the pictures were just the icing on the whole experience! We LOVED how they turned out and she captured each one of our kid’s personalities so well!!” 

Kristin Thiel

“As a mom of two little ones, planning a session can feel a bit overwhelming, but you made it such a happy, stress-free experience. The kids cooperated so well because of your joy and relationship with them which made me relax during the session. You made it feel effortless and I appreciate it so very much! I absolutely adore the photos!! They are such treasures for our family that we will cherish for many years to come. We cannot wait until our next session with you!”

Cami Facer

“Bethie was so amazing to work with!! Planning a session for a busy family with two littles can be a lot and the sessions can easily feel hectic, but Bethie was so helpful! I followed her style guide, had my hair and makeup done, and she was always just a quick text away for any help planning and choosing outfits and the location! And the session was such a breeze!! I’m IN LOVE with the photos!!”

Love Notes

My heart is in a puddle on the floor...

So now, I offer a wedding and portrait experience that is completely stress-free and allows my clients to enjoy their session and photos and feel like they are working with a trusted friend.

I saw brides, seniors, and moms wanting to have those timeless, high-end, elegant photos, but felt overwhelmed at the process from booking all the way to printing and *actually* enjoying their photos.

So, I learned how to simplify everything in my life, including my sessions. 

Over the years, I have dealt with anxiety and feeling easily overwhelmed. 

Enjoy your photos!!

You’ll receive your gallery online and be able to print your favorite photos right from there! And you’ll have all your photos hanging around your home in no time!

STEP four

The day of your session!! 

You just get to be you and enjoy your night together… I’ll take over from here!

STEP three

Choose your outfits & Location… One of my favorite parts of the process! 

As soon as you book your session, I’ll send you a style guide to walk you through it all!

STEP TWO

Put a date on the calendar…

STEP ONE

It is.

Is it really that simple?
