Meet Doug

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. I'm Doug Bean the luckiest man in the world because I'm married to Mindy Bean. We have been married over 13 years now and are more in love now than ever.

At first with Mindy Bean Photography I was just the man behind the curtain. Running the business. After getting out of the Marine Corps I finished my BA in Accounting and was working on my MBA in Finance, working a full time job, plus running all the backend for Mindy's Business. One day she handed me a camera and said let's go you are coming to second shoot with me for a wedding. I wasn't really that excited but went. As soon as I picked up the camera and caught that first beautiful moment at a wedding I was hooked. I loved figuring out the camera because there is so much math to getting the settings just right for the best possible photograph. Since I understood that I was able to teach Mindy how to use her settings better.

While working very hard at being the best photographer I can be I have had the pleasure of having the most demanding teacher possible. Mindy has always made me a better man but she even made me a better photographer. It took some time but in Early 2010 I was able to stop working my other job and go full time as a photographer. The best part of it is I have never looked back and loved every minute of it!

Mindy and I still work together and travel all over the world for weddings but I actually photograph more weddings now that she does. I love photographing weddings from the small two hour elopements on the Strip to the big all day affairs. We want to meet most couples budgets so we keep my weddings at a discount compared to Mindy. Please contact us with details about your big day and we would love to help!

I am so very happy with my decision to use them for my wedding photos! My fiance, now husband, and I decided to elope in Vegas. Our budget was tight, but, we still wanted to get dressed up after our ceremony and take professional pictures. After seeing cheesy "Vegas" photography, we came across the Mindy Bean Photography page. We were instantly amazed and in love with their capabilities and only wanted them to do our photos. It was last minute, and they still agreed to do our photos even though they had an engagement that kept them out late the following night. We were on a tight schedule and they were willing to accommodate. Doug was SO very professional. He was full of ideas and even able to work by taking photos of our rings, shoes, etc. while we finished getting ready. By the way, it was 5 o'clock in the morning! He made taking pictures fun! My fiance, now husband typically takes a moment to loosen up, but Doug had him genuinely laughing and having fun. It was just the best experience ever and it was really what we needed and everything that we wanted for our special day. We are so very blessed and fortunate to have found them and we will hire Doug again for our anniversary. You will not be disappointed with choosing them. Also, ordering their prints is an easy task and they are beyond reasonable with pricing for them. They are kind, considerate, professional, and caring. They are simply the absolute best!

We were married in Vegas with another couple, a double wedding. From the time I called and spoke with Doug on the phone, I had a really good feeling about him. We were married on a weekday and Mindy Bean Photography fit into our budget. Doug greeted us in the bridal room and assured us that everything was going to be fantastic and it was. He was a fun photographer and gave us the photos that we asked for. Our photos turned out beautiful. I would highly recommend Doug for your Las Vegas wedding!

Doug Bean of Mindy Bean Photography was our wedding photographer and he was FANTASTIC! Leading up to the day he was always available by text or email, and as he had never been to our unique venue before, he met us there a few weeks before the wedding for us to scope out shooting locations. On the big day, he helped my inexperienced groom tie his tie and arrange his tie clip and cuff links. After that Doug set up our First Look and it's a moment we will never forget. Throughout our entire day he was kind, courteous, patient, and made sure we only focused on each other and our love. He took shots we never would have thought of and for the specific shots we did ask for he made them even better than what we had in our heads. He was very careful about taking wonderful detail shots of my bouquet, our shoes, my groom's Green Lantern tie clip and cuff links, etc. He was creative and resourceful and together we took advantage of every nook and cranny of our beautiful 1930s Mission style Historic Fifth Street School venue. My husband and I really felt like Doug was part of our team! During the ceremony and reception he was both unobtrusive and everywhere at once! I know he got all the classic shots but I was never aware of him. All my guests and our family couldn't stop gushing about him. He was so fun during the reception too! There were a few times when he took our wedding rings away from us and I can't wait to see the photos to find out what creative things he did with them. I also saw him with our custom cake topper that was painted to look like us! He's a sneaky one! We haven't seen the photos yet but I have absolutely no doubt they will be gorgeous. We would hire Doug again in a second for any special occasion. He was the one vendor for our wedding that we appreciated the most and can't stop talking about.

We absolutely cannot believe to this day that we were fortunate enough to have our most incredible life moments captured by Mindy Bean Photography. Our friends and family still stare at all of the photos we have up on our walls and cannot get over how incredible each one looks. I knew 3 things were going to be an absolute fact when I proposed to my wife. They were 1. Our wedding was going to be the best day of our lives. 2. My bride was going to look absolutely stunning on that day. 3. I had better do my due diligence and find the best photographer I could to capture numbers 1&2. The absolute best decision we've made, we couldn't be more thrilled. I promise you will be in the greatest hands with Mindy and her husband Doug. They are extremely professional and know EXACTLY what it takes to ensure you enjoy a lifetime of life's perfect moments. THE BEST. Doug photographed our engagements and our wedding. They have both been there for family sessions, maternity and newborns

We used Doug for our engagement pictures and wedding day. He was amazing for both!!! He really brought out both of our personalities and captured moments we didn't even realize happened! He was fun but very professional. We are still ordering pictures from both sessions and have already planned our next session with him. He gave us a sense of comfort as if we knew him forever. We love Doug and Mindy and would highly recommend using them!!
