Preserving your favorite memories.
That’s what I’m all about.
I wanted the logo of Bethany Opp Photography to convey the warmth, fun, and memories shared within my sessions. And thanks to my friend Corey Muilenberg – I have a new logo that completely encompasses it! So here’s the big reveal that you’ll see me start flashing all over the place! 🙂
Thank you, Corey! I LOVE it!
I’ve had the privilege of knowing Kate and Wes through my church where they both actively serve our congregation. I was SO excited when Kate contacted me for their photo session because I know that between that and raising three kids, it can be so hard to find time to do something like this. I am so honored to be the one to preserve the memory of their family during this season of their life! Kate and Wes are two of the sweetest and down-to-earth people you will ever meet. Kate was one of the first people I really got to know after moving to Arkansas and joining our church and I have been so encouraged by her honesty, selflessness, and joy for serving people. Thank you both for your service to all those around you and for choosing me.
Planning a wedding is a huge event. If you’re like me, you were dreaming about it your whole life (and it’s really just the beginning!). And as we all know, there are usually enough details to keep the planning going for a few months. But, as a photographer, I wanted to take a moment to help you get the best out of your wedding photography experience by giving some insight into some important concerns for your photographer. Part of an online forum of over 29k members, I surveyed these fellow photographers in asking them…
What is something you wish your brides would tell you before the wedding day that you might not explicitly ask them about in a consultation… r random things you now ask that maybe aren’t as traditionally questioned but just as necessary?
So, I give you their (and my) answers.

Over the last couple of years, I have had the pleasure of getting to know Danae through college which she attended with my husband, Mark. Danae is one of those people that seems to just get it. She’s down to earth, determined, and always brings your focus back to what’s really important – the Lord. Within our group of Dordt College alumni, I’ve been able to travel with her to Omaha, South Dakota, Colorado and a ton of other fun spots where our group of forever young college graduates spent our time laughing and blessing one another. I’ve also had the joy of getting to know her now-husband, Alonzo, who I’d also met through some of the same mutual friends. He’s a fun guy with a great heart and is incredibly easy to talk to. The two of these wonderful people have so much promising future service for God – I am so excited to see where he takes them and what future travels we all get to share again!
I had the pleasure of meeting this family while they were visiting from out of state. They were referred to me by one of my client’s and I couldn’t be more grateful! The shoot was great, the lighting turned out better than I imagined, and the images tell it all. This family is so sweet and I’m so glad they took time out of their vacation to meet with me! Safe travels, guys!
Sarah and I have been best friends since the time I was seven and we’ve been in each other’s weddings. It only seems natural that I would be able to take photos in this new chapter in her life – of her sweet little darling, doesn’t it? So happy to have been able to spend time with this cutie and look forward to watching her grow through the years. Such a sweet and happy little girl! ♥ (more…)
My sister-in-law is graduating from college in the spring! So hard to believe that she is a senior already. Beautiful inside and out, she is one of the sweetest people I have EVER met in my life and I am so, so, so proud to call her my sister. Here’s some beautiful senior photography with this lovely lady, Lauren! Love you, girl. ♥ (more…)
I’ve known Julia for a couple years now and was so excited I got do her engagement photography with her fiance`, Oliver. Even though it was only 18 degrees outside…these two are one of those happy-go-lucky, bubbly and fun couples that makes everything fun and this shoot was definitely full of laughs. I’m so happy for you two and may the Lord bless you with many wonderful years of marriage! (more…)
My brother used to play lacrosse for the city of Redding and I loved going to his games for some great sports photography. Even better – I got to take away some incredible photos from some of them. I will be adding more photos over time, but here is a sample of my brother, Marcus, in action! (more…)
