Hey! I'm Mycah &
I am SO dang excited you're here! 

Hey, we are Mycah Bain Photography and TEAM!

let's make some magic

Meet the TEAM!

We are here to make your wedding dreams come true!

I (Mycah) will do all of the planning with you and provide you lots of helpful info :) You’ll have a chance to meet up with your wedding photographer on our team, at your engagement session OR via phone/video chat :) If you have any questions along the way, I will be here for you and make sure your photographer has ALL of the info needed to best capture your day! After your wedding, I’ll edit your photos so the editing style and vibe will continue to be in line with everything you’ve seen on the website :) And then 4-6 weeks after your wedding, you’ll receive a custom online gallery with all of your photos to enjoy and get your Fine Art Album ordered!  

Weddings and elopements are our absolute favorite and we can't wait to tell your story!

Meet Anna!


From Anna: "I am part of the LGBTQ+ community and specialize in that! Connecting with humans is my all time favorite thing. I love traveling and hope to move out West some day!"

Loves: Hiking and nature, dogs, Ireland, cozy nights and ginger (the spice, candied, pickled, all of it!)

Rave from a client:
"Anna is THE most personable and thoughtful photographer. She truly wants to understand you, your partner, your story, and your vision for the day. From there she dives right in and adjusts her style to yours and over delivers. She made us feel so comfortable throughout the process and helped us feel natural in front of the camera which made our photos turn out even better - we totally felt like we could be ourselves. She is passionate and emotionally whole and puts her heart into your day. At one point during our ceremony my sister said she looked over and saw Anna crying, that alone tells me we had the right person for our special day who was invested in us as a couple and her business/work.

Meet Juma!


From Juma: "Born and raised in Minnesota! I am an absolute lover of the outdoors but wont turned down an opportunity to stay inside drink a cup of my favorite tea (good earth sweet and spicy). I am currently studying chemical engineering at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities with a minor in Chemistry. Not only do I have a love for photography and capturing people beauty but I also have a huge passion for STEM. I love the possibility of solving an issue from a scientific stand point and helping our earth. Defiantly two MAJORLY different parts of my brain. A fun fact is my absolute favorite color is lavender/lilac! At this point is it a personality trait. I really enjoy immersing myself and learning about cultures different from my own! Through music, food, language, and connecting with people to learn more about different cultures and life styles. On my bucket list ride in a hot air balloon :)

Loves: boba, warm weather, deep talks, nature walks, disney movies with a good sounds track so I can sing along :))

From a client:
"JUMA!!! I CANT EVEN!!! I just looked through my gallery and I have tears in my eyes!! I am in LOVE with the way they turned out!!  I will treasure these photos forever (cuz I look freaking amazing thanks to you)"

From Keighla: "First of all I'm Keighla, it sounds like "Kayla" but spelled in a super fun way - thanks Mom and Dad!  My first real camera was a purple Kodak 110 camera. If you want to see some rocking shots of summer camp in 1993 let me know. I was a whiz.  I have a Bachelor's degree in print journalism, and I worked as a newspaper reporter for a few years where I fell in love with photojournalism Also, I. love. coffee. Iced white mocha with sweet cream foam and caramel drizzle or something I whip up at home. 

After my winter wedding in 2013, I totally and absolutely fell in love with weddings. I spent a few years shadowing and learning the ropes and then spread my wings and took off. Now weddings are bread and butter and I love it!  I met and married the most amazing husband who is supportive, funny, handsome and I just love him. He lets me be a vehicular rockstar when my jam comes on and is the cook in our house. My little girl, Maisy, is the highlight of my day. I will without a doubt tell you about her when we hang out. She’s so fun to parent."

Loves: My family, naps in the sunshine, traveling, being creative, connecting.

From a bride:"Keighla is such an incredible photographer. Not just in her amazing eye for poses, backgrounds, angles, etc, but in the way she makes you feel as she’s leading you through the process. I feel as if she’s a friend I’ve known forever with how comfortable & fun she makes the photo sessions!!"
