– Hello! –

My name is Betty Elaine Simpson

I’m Betty, a wedding and anniversary photographer for adventurous devoted couples. I’m a wife, mama, boss, visual storyteller, mixology hobbyist, adventure seeker, and travel addict. I spend my days doing life with my best friend and husband Matt, laughing loudly while dancing with my baby boy Wilder, and our corgi Indie. I’m always planning our next hike, or trip. And I’m always ready for an excuse to go back to Europe!

My Philosophy

I am a curator of stories, and I tell those stories in photos.

Your love story is important to me, and I want to tell that story with your wedding photography. I believe in marriage. It is a bond that is sacred, romantic, and real. The couples I work with place value on their wedding day photography, and are passionate, fun, unique people. As a wedding and anniversary photographer, I am honored in documenting my clients love stories, and their devotion together in all steps of their journey in marriage.

My photography style is intimate, romantic, and editorial. Behind my camera I feel a sense of freedom to explore, create scenes, capture details, and really see the couple’s vision for their wedding. I aim to encapsulate beauty and joy in each photograph. My clients are adventurous. They are the type of people who see the fun in getting their wedding dress and shoes a little dirty, will climb trees and hike with me, they value capturing moments epically more than staying picture perfect.

On your wedding day I won’t just photograph you, but I’ll be there to document your friends, family, and all the details of your day. I might cry during your vows, I might whisk you two away so you can have a few minutes alone, I want your wedding day photography to be a tangible representation of your legacy together so you can remember and continue to share your wedding day over the years, and as your family grows.
