Meet Bailey

Bailey Aro Hutchence | Boudoir & Wedding Photographer | Duluth, MN

Hello! I’m so grateful our paths have crossed. My name is Bailey & I tell love stories. As a full-time girl boss & big dreamer, I’m most content with a pint of craft beer in hand & a giant pup at my feet. Together with my bearded British husband, we’re pursuing a life of balance, adventure, and puppy snuggles with our Bernese Mountain Dog, Summit. Although I call Duluth, Minnesota “home,” exploring new places fuels my soul. Over the past six years, I’ve spent time in 18 countries and lived in both Ireland & Wales. I’m always dreaming up the next adventure!

Fueled by fresh air & a sense of adventure, I capture the small yet meaningful moments of my couples’ love stories. By building trust & getting to know you, I create authentic, joyful images that embody the true spirit of my clients. As a boutique wedding photographer, I take on a limited number of weddings each year, so that I can deliver a luxury experience to every couple. You’ll have my whole heart & dedicated energy, from our first conversation, to the day you unwrap your gorgeous images (and even beyond!). Apart from weddings, I capture couples throughout their marriage journeys in Beloved Sessions, and run a full-service Boudoir Studio in historic Downtown Duluth.

In 2012, I married my best friend & forever adventure buddy, Joe (but most folks call him “Hutch”). We met while working at summer camp: A British boy & Minnesota girl whose whirlwind summer romance turned into forever. We currently live in Duluth, overlooking the big lake & savoring as much fresh air as we can get with our giant lap dog. Along with photography, I adore camping, hiking, craft beer, and exploring new places. My happy place includes a canoe, good friends, and witty banter. And although I much prefer hiking boots to high heels, you’ll often find me sporting sequins & lipstick on weekdays. It’s a fine balance. At my core, I believe in creating a meaningful life full of passion, creativity, and adventure. Now, it’s your turn: Let’s chat! I would love to treat you to my favorite local coffee house & get to know you better.
