Zimmerman, MN Photographer | Senior Session | Taylor


My family and my business moved to Zimmerman, MN last spring, however I am still serving all of central Minnesota and beyond as a portrait photographer.

Don’t miss out on my spring special, its the only one I run on senior portraits for the year.

Spring Special | Senior Photography Minnesota

I loved this session with Taylor, she was super photogenic and made my job so easy. I love incorporating all of Minnesota’s beautiful scenery into my  senior photography sessions. We started her session at one of my favorite river spots near Sartell, Minnesota. I love when my seniors wear dresses and aren’t afraid to get a little wet at their session. We had the most magical light at both of Taylors locations. I love how the light hits her hair and the water reflections are to die for!

We did the second half of her session at the old farmstead at Bend in the River near Rice. I love all the old structures and textures there. The open fields are my favorite though as they can get the most magical evening light, and I love the symmetry of the trees.

If you are looking for someone to photograph your senior, I would love to chat with you and your senior. I do offer a free phone or email consult prior to booking to make sure that we are a good fir for each other.

Blackberry Ridge Sartell Minnesota Wedding Photography

Did you know that I shoot Minnesota weddings too? While I only take on a limited amount each year, I do offer wedding photography as one of my services. You can find more about my wedding services here https://bethjphotography.com/wedding-photography/

This was a beautiful wedding in the fall that was held at Blackberry Ridge Golf Course and Country Club in Sartell, Minnesota. Kelsey and Jeff make such a beautiful couple! Kelsey and Jeff got ready at a nearby hotel and took a shuttle bus to the country club. The couple was hoping to have the wedding outside but it was one of those bitterly cold and windy fall days so they moved the reception inside. While I know it wasn’t what they planned it still turned out beautifully. The couple and their wedding party and family even braved the cold for some outdoor photos.

The couple had a lot of neat little touches, like individual bottles of syrup made from a family member with their names and wedding date on it. The flowers, and the LOVE lit up were also a lovely touch. I also loved the colors she had picked out the gray and purple were perfect fall colors.

Kelsey made the most beautiful bride, she had a gorgeous dress, and on the bottom of her shoes she had “I do” written in blue letters for her something blue. She has a timeless beauty to her and was a dream to photograph.

Blackberry Ridge is a beautiful venue and the grounds are quite lovely, I wish we could have utilized them a little more, but I was still happy with the outdoor shots we got.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer for 2018 yet, I still have quite a few dates open, and I would love to talk to you about your big wedding day!

Senior Photographer Elk River Minnesota | Amy | country session

Did you know my business relocated last year? I moved to Zimmerman, MN which is closer to Elk River, Becker, Monticello, Otsego, Maple Grove, etc. I am still serving the St. Cloud area as that is only an hour away from me, and I still visit there.

What can I say about Amy? Other than I don’t think I have ever met a young lady with a more sparkling personality. She was so adult like and just hilarious, she made her session so fun. Did I mention she is stunning? That hair, those freckles, gah! She had the best “serious” face I have seen in awhile. Amy did one of my shorter sessions but we still packed a ton into that session. We did her session at Bend in the River park, near Rice which has a ton of variety. I loved that she brought her electric guitar and wanted to get a few pictures with that.

Isn’t that field amazing?! Its one of my favorite spots I have ever shot at, and I try to use it every time I am at that place. Depending on the time of year there are various wildflowers that bloom there too. Although we had to withstand tons of bugs and bees!

I am now booking for this summer and fall in Elk River and all the surrounding areas. I travel statewide. email me at – bethjphotography@gmail.com to book your session now.
