In love wedding photographers with our suitcases packed for adventures. We specialize in personality driven portraiture and emotional storytelling.

We became wedding photographers because we loved each other. Truly. We went on an adventure when we were first married, kayaking from Lubec, Maine to Key West, Florida. On that trip, we realized that we wanted to be together all the time, not trading our numbered days for a number on a paycheck. As photographers and business owners, we get to spend our time together, make a difference in people’s lives, create art, and be in charge of our time…so that’s what we do! We figured out we needed to be our own bosses and then just pursued photography as an avenue for that. I had always loved taking photographs and we pounced on the idea. Crazy, right? Read less

Best photographers HANDS DOWN. Bethany and Dan are professional, personable, and talented artists. Working with them is a pleasure from start to finish. They care about the process and getting to know you before the event.

While shooting, B+D make you feel comfortable behind the camera. If you tend to feel a little on the awkward side, they make it way easy. You may surprise yourself!

They are masters at capturing “the moments” in a creative, unique way leaving you with original photographs that feel organic yet beautiful.

So thrilled to have a collection of wedding photos we can look back on, be proud of, and remember exactly what the best day of our lives felt like.

Thank you Bethany and Dan!

Bethany and Dan were both so wonderful to work with. Their photos are beautiful and so special. They did an amazing job of not only capturing all of the colors of the day, but all of the emotions as well. They also took the time to help my husband and I feel comfortable and relaxed as we navigated our way through several surprisingly stressful moments on our wedding day. They were a very calming presence that I really appreciated. It was so great to work with them!!

After seeing Bethany & Dan in action at not one, but two friends’ weddings, my husband, Mike, and I knew we had to have them as our wedding photographers.

In addition to being impressed by their beautiful photographs, we were really attracted to them as people. We felt comfortable being ourselves—something we feared would be impossible while standing in front of a camera. During our engagement session, there were times we forgot we were being photographed. Bethany & Dan helped us truly relax and have fun with it, which resulted in the most incredible photos.

A lot of our wedding guests commented that “it felt like there were 5 Bethany & Dans at the wedding.” Everywhere we turned, they were there capturing the moment. But they were never in the way; they were just in the right place at the right time.

The morning of the wedding, Bethany asked if she could ride with my dad and me to the church. I was hesitant at first, but agreed to let her join us. In hindsight, having Bethany with us was one of the best decisions I made all day. She helped me remain calm, talking to us as if she had known us for a lifetime, all the while snapping awesome candids of my dad and me in the backseat. She was a part of such a special moment without being intrusive—a difficult balance to strike. But she nailed it!

It’s safe to say what we enjoyed most about working with Bethany & Dan, aside from the incredible and unique photos that we now have forever, is that their love for each other is contagious. It’s so hard to feel awkward or rigid or unnatural when you’re with them.

Their work speaks for itself, but the experience you take away from working alongside them is priceless.

We cannot recommend Bethany & Dan enough! We look forward to any opportunity to work with them again in the future.

Stop reading this and go book them. Now.

Bethany and Dan were phenomenal to work with from our initial contact. They are easy to contact, have great ideas, and even served as a resource for us on things like the timing of events throughout our wedding day, colors, and other things that they had seen work well.

When our schedules made finding time for an engagement shoot difficult, Bethany and Dan were incredibly patient, and ultimately ended up traveling to do the shoot on the one weekend that worked for us. We had a blast working with them, and the pictures were absolutely stunning.

At our wedding, we received many comments from guests that Bethany and Dan were everywhere, but also nearly invisible. They have a calming effect on the day, and are incredibly skilled at instructing people in order to get natural looking shots.

Bethany & Dan are incredible, and were an integral part of our wedding. They brought great vibes, were super professional and the photos are outstanding. We've been looking at them at night and just dying over how beautiful they are. I want to print them all. Literally not one bad pictures. I wish these guys were able to photograph my entire life. HIRE THEM!!

Pictures are incredibly important to me, so when it came time to choose our wedding photographers, my fiancé (now husband!) and I started looking right away. We booked Bethany and Dan without having met them, before our venue and other huge details were even 100% solidified! We just had a good feeling about them, and man, were we right! During planning phone calls and emails they helped us nail down a timeline, arranged for quite a few big family shots, and helped figure out a backup plan in case of inclement weather. They took lots off our shoulders and made sure everything ran smoothly. Knowing how badly I wanted our portraits outside, they took a huge risk in the rain and decided to go for it. It looked iffy for a while, but the rain stopped for the hour that we needed it to, and our photos are incredible. We are so lucky to have had photographers who understood our vision and took a chance to help see it through. Working with people who LOVE their job and get positively giddy during shoots made it such an enjoyable experience for us. They entertained one-year-olds to get their best smiles, found amazingly green spots on the Appalachian Trail, laid down on a wet dock to get our reflections in the lake, and did some super creative work with umbrellas, just to name a few highlights. We are lucky to count Bethany and Dan as new friends, and we will forever be grateful for the stunning work they did to caption our special day. Now the only problem is deciding which pictures to print, since they are ALL amazing. Thank you, Bethany and Dan!!!

Hands down best wedding photographers out there and we feel so lucky to have had them photograph our special day. Bethany and Dan are simply AMAZING!!! They captured our special day so beautifully. We truly enjoyed working with them and they are just two people you love to be around. We used them for both engagement photos and on the wedding day and they made us feel so comfortable and at east. We so enjoyed having them there on the day of the wedding - they blended in so nicely and had such a calming presence. They made the whole process so enjoyable and seamless as they are easy to work with, organized and professional. We could not have asked for better photographers!! We love Bethany and Dan!!

My fiance and I booked Bethany and Dan for our engagement session. They were amazing photographers and the end result was absolutely stunning. They both have great but different eyes for photos, so we got a variety of shots (After trekking all over beautiful Acadia National Park, you wouldn't believe that our favorite photo was in a parking lot fern - per Bethany's crazy suggestion!). Their personalities are fun and easygoing, which made working with them comfortable. We were only temporarily living in Maine, but I now wish we had booked them for our Wisconsin wedding! I would recommend Bethany and Dan to anyone looking for an engagement photographer.

Bethany and Dan are the best. But I knew that before hiring them and they totally lived up to the hype that I had set in my head.
I have now worked with Bethany and Dan for both professional (work) shoots and now personal (Wedding) shoots and they do not ever disappoint.

They ask all the right questions beforehand and are extremely professional on site during events. For our wedding, we did a shoot beforehand and only had to leave the reception or 5 minutes to take some couple shots, the rest of the time it felt like Bethany and Dan weren't there because they seamlessly blended into the crowd to get the best candid shots.

I can not recommend them enough.

Bethany and Dan Photography was far and wide the best decision we made when planning our special day. They work perfectly together as a team. Their mix of creativity and professionalism is spot on. They both make you feel so comfortable and really know how show you how to be the best you, you can be in a photo. The images they captured and created were very polished and finished and they obviously have an incredible eye for the perfect photographic moment. They captured romantic, intimate moments as well as fun, whimsical, silly photos. We felt complete trust in the direction they were going and the final product was beyond our expectations. The photos they gave us will forever remind us of how special and beyond our expectations our elopement was, and for that I am eternally grateful.
