Trash The Dress
Best experience!Reviewed on 9/20/2012 Violet J
We had our wedding in July 2012. From the beginning of the planning process, to when we received our finished photos, it was an absolutely amazing experience working with Mindy Bean Photography. They were so accommodating to us and went above and beyond on all occasions. It was so easy to work with Mindy the day of the Wedding. She provided a lot of direction, which was a great asset, and made everyone feel so comfortable. All the finished photos we received were incredible! They are so creative and full of emotions. Everything is exceptional, the lighting, positioning, the way expressions were captured, and all the little details. They definitely did their research as to perfect spots for shots and even gave great recommendations. We are so happy with not only the photos but also the great experience that Mindy Bean Photography provided for our special day!

In LOVE with These guys!!!Reviewed on 1/23/2012 Jennie C
When my husband and I first met Mindy and her husband Doug, it was for us to take our engagement photos. When we pulled up to UNLV to start the shoot all we saw was an attractive young couple, and my (soon to be) husband turned to me and said, that can't be them, can it? Well, as it turned out, it sure was! (In the past, our experiences of photographers were of older men, who were no fun and told gross jokes and the photos were average at best. So, we were very happy to see that it was almost "us" who we were meeting.) We then proceeded to have the most amazing two hour shoot ever! It was like hanging out with old friends from the first 10 mins. Without even seeing the photos we booked our wedding with them because we just knew you could not fake or replace such a perfect relationship & because they said they would love to come to Napa, CA where were were getting married at a vineyard! You truly need to have that, dynamic, when it comes to your wedding photographers and your wedding day, especially if you want fantastic shots! We had that with Mindy and her husband Doug. It truly felt like we had ben friends for years, they just made us feel so comfortable, and when it comes to being to subject of all the attention it's very important to feel comfortable.... The day of our wedding was perfect! Not only was Mindy snapping away, but she was also like a second MOH! She is such a professional, and really knows what needs to be done and how it's supposed get there. She was truly a life savor, she even knew how to tie my brides maids sashes into a perfect bow! Nothing was left out, every detail was shot, and they even asked us what photos we wanted, such as, family shots, and detailed shots, which I really appreciated. She took shots of my hair and my bridesmaids and my mom's, my dogs, and my shoes....she really just thinks of it all! The parent books that she did for us, (we have three sets of parents so we added that in) were specific for each parent and they were just so great...Mindy and Doug really make you feel special and take the time to make you feel so important, not like you are just another couple. The photos turned out so perfectly and we still get compliments about how our photographers were "all over it" lol. We just can't say enough good things about them, truly we feel so blessed to have found such an amazing duo. We plan on keeping them around for any additions to our family in hopes that they will be able to capture those precious moments too. I would and will highly recommend them for as long as I can, because I LOVE them so much. They made our special day even more special because we have the most amazing photos to remember it by. Thank you again, Mindy and Doug, you guys ROCK!
We were married in September in Las Vegas - we are from Australia. Doug was our amazing photographer. Doug was absolutely fantastic. He knows how to tie tie's, button up wedding dresses, fix hair, honestly the list goes on. But most importantly he makes you feel so comfortable and takes fantastic photo's. Just take my word for it and hire these guys, they are fabulous.
We could not have asked for a better photographer! He took the time to get to know us as a couple to get a better understanding of our personalities and styles so he could capture that on our wedding day. The photos were absolutely gorgeous! He did a great job of capturing each moment and making every picture look completely natural. We're so in love with our wedding pictures!
Absolutely LOVED working with Doug for our engagement pictures and wedding! My fiancé and I were long distance during the engagement and he was on a trip to Las Vegas, so we decided to do our pictures there at Red Rocks... stunning pictures, and we loved Doug's work so much we decided to have him do our wedding as well! Great to work with, beautiful pictures, and he included traveling to our wedding in California with the pricing. Would highly suggest them to anyone, you won't be disappointed!!
Mindy AND Doug are the best that there are in Las Vegas, not just as photographers but as people as well. We had a less than thrilling experience with the photographer who did our engagements and Mindy and Doug stepped in and made sure our wedding photos were a beautiful work of art, not just photos. One of the things we love about them is how much they care about their couples and how comfortable they make the entire process. I have no idea what to do with myself in photos other than the standard hand on hip and smile. Mindy transformed me into the most stunningly posed bride and also made my groom, who is 6 foot 7 not look so towering and awkward above me. One of our favorite parts of shooting that day was watching the relationship that Mindy and Doug have, they have been together for 14 years and still act like newlyweds and that energy is so wonderful to be around on a day that is surrounded around so much love. One of the most important things that I love about Mindy is how she celebrates every type of couple or person. She is an outstanding mother of a child with Type One Diabetes, which I also have and can see that because of that she puts so much compassion into celebrating the individual uniqueness of whoever is in front of her lens. I am absolutely blow away by her talent and the art she showed me from our wedding. She is amazing and you would be missing out on the chance to meet a wonderful photographer and person if you didn't call her as soon as you say "YES". Mindy and Doug --- We love you guys and can't thank you enough for everything.
My fiancé and I are new to Las Vegas and after lots of research I came across mindy bean photography. I talked to Doug on the phone and he was so detailed I knew this would be a good fit for us. I am very picky and had this vision of what I wanted our engagement pictures to look like. Doug made my vision come to life. We took our engagement pictures on the strip and we felt like celebrities. I can't even begin to tell you the number of compliments we have gotten on them but not to mention Dougs ability to bring our vision to life. This is someone who truely cares and is not just doing it for the paycheck. Great job Doug!
You can seriously stop looking for your photographer now! Mindy & Doug Bean are THE best. We had the pleasure working with Doug Bean, who is seriously the man! My husband isn't as "into the perfect photos" as I am, and Doug made him feel super comfortable with the engagements and wedding day photos. We first met the Bean's at the wedding expo and had a great kick-off meeting as a friend of mine referred me to Doug. From the meeting at their office to the post-wedding communication with Doug, we cannot rave enough. Our friends and family love Doug and we get several compliments on their photos and editing work! This couple truly takes pride in their work and you will see that when you view their galleries!!! Doug was also helpful in earlier stages of planning as he referred me to other awesome vendors. I could rave on and on about Doug & Mindy, get a consultation with them today as we'd recommend them to everyone! Thank you Doug & Mindy for being such awesome people and really making our memories so special!! we love you!
Mindy Bean is so incredibly awesome!! I am able to remember my perfect day and actually be happy with the way my pictures turned out! It's actually pretty funny, I've never really liked the way I looked in pictures, I've always been my worst critic, but I could not believe the way she captured my husband and I! There are no other words for it besides perfect.... it brought tears to my eyes looking through the pictures! I never had a doubt about having her do our pictures, but I could not believe how amazing she made me look and feel! Mindy worked with our schedule, made sure we had fun at our photo shoots and jumped in and joined the party on our wedding day. She is without a doubt the best photographer I have worked with. She is amazing!! 💙
My husband and I made the best decision of our wedding by booking Mindy and Doug. They were both incredibly professional and amazing through the time that we booked them to choosing photos for our wedding album. My husband found them via a search for an engagement shoot photographer in Las Vegas, and we were immediately convinced we needed to hire them for the wedding as well. They flew out to New Jersey to shoot our wedding and we couldn't be happier with the results. Both of them went above and beyond on the actual day as well- Mindy touched up my makeup several times! I know we will treasure the engagement and wedding photos forever and we are so lucky to have them! I would highly recommend both Mindy and Doug to my family and friends, and I am attending another wedding for one of my best friends in three weeks, and she has also hired Mindy. Both Mindy and Doug are the best!
We couldn't be happier with our experience in having Doug as our photographer!! Throughout the wedding planning process, Doug was extremely responsive with any questions we had and was a pleasure to work with. He photographed our engagement session and our wedding and the results for each are amazingly beautiful. He knows what he is doing and like he promised, we didn't have to worry about getting a second photographer for the big day as he was able to capture every moment himself. I completely recommend Mindy Bean Photography!
Mindy and Doug are absolutely amazing to work with! We had engagement shoots with both Mindy and Doug and each time we were just so impressed with each of them! Mindy also shot our wedding and we are thrilled with our photos and will cherish them forever! They were also very helpful throughout the process if I had questions about vendors or my day of timeline. I can't wait until the next time we need Mindy and Doug for photos! Definitely recommend!
What a power couple these two are!!! From the start my husband and I loved everything about Mindy Bean Photography, we met them both at the Bridal Spectacular show and I knew they'd be the one to photograph our wedding. I just had a feeling... We met with Doug and we just fell in love with his work and his personality! He was warm and welcoming to his studio and he knew what he was talking about. He really takes the time to get to know his couples, professionally and personally so he can really capture your vision. The day of the wedding Doug showed up with the most warm heart and said "you've got this girl" he could tell i was a little nervous and needed a kind word. He knew just what to say to me! He was every where the day of the wedding and captured every moment imaginable. I am going to use Mindy Bean for everything in life when it comes to photography!!!! They we worth every penny we spent!!! I honestly could not come up with all the words and sayings that theses to deserve because they are no words for how AMAZING they are!!!!
Mindy Bean Photography is really awesome. Doug worked really well with really getting to know my husband and I and what we were looking for in our pictures. Doug took amazing pictures and made sure to get every shot, so that there wasn't anything from our wedding day that was not pictured. I highly recommend them to everyone.
Our wedding wouldn't have been complete without our amazing photographer! They were incredibly helpful in preparation and planning. When working with them it's like talking to an old friend. Easy to talk to and brings out the best in every picture. I've recommended them too all of my friends!
Mindy was beyond amazing! She did both our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn't of been happier with the outcome. Mindy was the perfect fit for our wedding we recommend her to everyone
Loved themReviewed on 7/17/2015 Sabrina F
During my process of looking for a photographer I must have looked at about 15. Some had great prices but terrible photos or amazing photos and extremely high prices. I first saw their photos online and when I met them at the bridal expo I loved Doug and Mindy. I loved that they had such a variety of packages to choose from. Doug was so amazing during our engagement session he had us laughing the whole time. Our photos came out more amazing than we imagined. WEll worth the money.
Fantastic Wedding Photos!!Reviewed on 4/28/2015 Lee B
Doug was our photographer and he is truly an artist. We were married at the Bellagio and had our reception at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant across the street. The Bellagio requires that you use their in house photographer in house for the wedding, so we booked Mindy Bean for the reception. I am so Happy we did!! It was the best money spent on the wedding. The Bellagio photography is a rip off. They take stale and dull shots, then meet with you the next day and try to sell you a package starting at $2800 for ridiculously large photos that you will never hang in your home. In addition, they print all your photos on 5x7 and only sell them in a package. If you opt out, they throw the photos away. Absurd! Enough of that, Doug took two very unphotogenic people and made us look like models. His ideas are creative and genius. We are so thrilled with the pictures! He captured cameos at the reception and got great shots of the moments. I would highly recommend this photographer for your wedding. You will not be disappointed.
Doug - best wedding photography bang for your buck!Reviewed on 3/03/2015 Laura F
We loved Doug and highly recommend using him and his associates for your wedding. We had a tight budget and found that the quality we wanted wasn't necessarily in our price range. However, after speaking with Mindy (whose photo style I adored), I found out that her husband, Doug, was trained by her and his photos are edited by her. So, they still have that magic Mindy touch as well as having Doug's truly amazing ability to take honest and beautiful portraits - all within our budget! I opted to also get a second shooter from them, Saundra, who was equally great. I ended up with all of the photos I wanted (and then some!). The pictures Doug took of my guests at the reception were so great that at least 5 of them changed their Facebook profile pictures to his picture of them. Definitely will use him in the future for pregnancy and family photos.
Great!!!!Reviewed on 12/17/2014 Jess A
We chose Doug to do our photos for our elopement. As an Australian couple eloping to Las Vegas, we were a little worried about who to trust. This company was excellent. Doug is a very friendly guy and we enjoyed taking photos with him. We received our photos electronically very quickly as well!!!!! We expected to wait longer. They came out really well. I would highly recommend this company - especially if you're international and eloping to Vegas!!!! Thanks Doug and Mindy! :)
Breathtaking!Reviewed on 11/07/2014 Kimberly H
We hired Doug for a 1 year Anniversary photo shoot while celebrating in Las Vegas and he was amazing! We had SO much fun and the photos are absolutely breathtaking! He listened to what we were wanting and made it happen plus so much more! It felt like we had our best friend taking the photos because he just knew what was us and what was not.
Could not have asked for a better wedding photography experience!!!!Reviewed on 10/21/2014
Seriously Doug and Mindy are two of the most incredible people my husband and I have ever met. Not only are they amazingly talented but they have hearts of gold and are in love with what they do; which shows thru in their photographs. Honestly, no one is more capable of capturing pure, raw emotion like these guys. Not only did we walk away with mind blowing photos to treasure our special memories forever, but we walked away with two awesome friends. Thanks Doug and Mindy for everything!!
Awesome!Reviewed on 10/16/2014
We are an Australian couple who got married in Las Vegas - we were so lucky to have Doug as our photographer! The Mindy Bean booking system, and communication from Doug before the big day, was fantastic, which put my mind at ease. Doug made some great suggestions for locations too. On the day he went above and beyond - taking great steps to ensure everything ran smoothly - from ensuring we were on schedule, liaising with our car driver and helping us out with local knowledge. But the best part was Doug's photography expertise - he gave fantastic direction in every photo to each person to make sure the photos were flattering, that we captured the best light, the best background, etc. And the photos are AMAZING - I've had so many comments from family and friends saying how great Doug was on the day and how the photos are the best wedding photos they've ever seen. The photos are all I could have hoped for and more and I can't thank Mindy Bean Photography enough!
