Bettendorf, IA Photographer

Hi! My name is Brennen Tope and I’m a photographer in Bettendorf, Iowa.

I specialize as a Bettendorf wedding photographer, portfolio headshot photographer, pet photographer, senior portraits photographer, event photographer, real estate photographer, and family photographer.

I’m most well known for my work around the Quad Cities area taking pictures such as the I-74 bridge and the beautiful Mississippi River. I’m always looking for that new angle whether it be a picture of an old cathedral or a remote location that is unique to my hometown, Davenport. I try and bring out everything unique and interesting in my native area. I like to show people that they don’t have to go too far to be able to experience something beautiful and stunning. It is my personal challenge to bring out every person’s personality in a project I am hired for. If you want to know more about me, check out -> my story.

Below we have more information on the services I provide. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you already know what you want though! I’m almost always available and will get back to your request in a timely manner.


Bettendorf Photographey Services

Quality Pictures for a Quality You! (I'm cheesy like that)


One of the most hectic and thrilling stories to tell is a wedding. As a Bettendorf wedding photographer, I would know! From start to finish the journey is amazing and everything should go as planned. You deserve to feel at ease at the wedding and enjoy yourself and still know you’ll be able to see the very best moments after the special night is over. With so much going on, it’s important to have a professional photographer scanning the area for the best shots and not being distracted. You aren’t able to say the same thing for your relative who has been dabbling with cameras. They could get caught up talking with a friend or family and completely miss a first dance, or a shared look between the newlyweds. Select me and I’ll tell your visual story through the ceremony, family portraits, and during the reception without distraction or bias; you deserve the peace of mind on your big day


Finding a headshot photographer that fits your project can be difficult, even around Bettendorf. The way I am unique and special from others is that I have knowledge of a lot of great areas that make for professional headshots for any purpose whether it be individual, family, business, or magazine. You will feel proud to show off your new portrait to your friends, clients, colleagues, and family. I’m here to make sure your photo is LinkedIn, work, Facebook, or even Tinder ready.


As a Bettendorf pet photographer, I have seen my share of amazing animals. They can be very adorable and finding that photo that captures their attitude and personality is a journey I would love to take with you. It takes a certain skill to be able to work with pets and keep them occupied while photographing them and I have had quite a lot of practice with my client’s pets. Let me know if you have a best friend that needs their beauty captured.


It doesn’t seem that long ago when I first became a Bettendorf senior portrait photographer. It started when my younger sister asked if I could take her’s and her friend’s senior pictures. I didn’t realize it then, but it’s not as easy as “point” and “click.” Even though it was a tough learning curve, I was still able to get quite the compliments from all my sister’s friends. My sister Mallory even admitted I did a good job!

They loved the locations I found for each picture, commenting that they wouldn’t have even thought of this location before I suggested it. That’s the beauty of being a Davenport, Iowa native I suppose! So feel free to trust me with making your senior pictures unique and picturesque as my sister’s friends did.


Being an event photographer around Bettendorf is by far my favorite photography to do as I enjoy the atmosphere of each event I go to. Most of the events I’ve taken pictures at have been music concerts with high energy, loud noises, and not always the best lighting, so I’m positive I can handle a family gathering or reception of any kind, no matter how many relatives you bring! Feel free to check out some of the photos I’ve been able to capture that musicians have even saved and commented positively on.


Learning to excel as a Bettendorf family portrait photographer did not take as long as one might think. Coming from a family of four siblings, I understand the great and sometimes not so great of a big family. It can be hectic at times especially whenever we all had to be at school on time! This experience has allowed me to be more in tune with families big and small.

After we make contact, I will find a spot in the Quad City to do the photo session. Come ready to be put in different positions that show the best quality of the family. From there I will edit the pictures and send them to you where you’re able to treasure them for life.

I would be honored to photograph your family whether it be a big family shot, or individual children or newborn shot.


Please feel free to contact me about pricing and rates if you’re interested. I have examples of prices I have used in the past but I like to see each new project as an opportunity to meet the needs of my client in an affordable way for them. Essentially, you get the top quality pictures without breaking the bank! Let’s talk about the memories you want to capture today.

Bettendorf, Iowa History

As a native of the Quad Cities, I enjoy researching the cities history that makes it up. Bettendorf wasn’t always known for its Ise of Capri Casinos but was originally in a territory and bought from the Sac and Fox Indians after they were defeated in the Black Hawk War. It got its name after two brothers who bought 70 acres of land around 1900. Their names were William and Joseph Bettendorf and they owned a large factory that played a major factor in the economic boom and early development. If you’re in the lovely neighborhood of Bettendorf and are in need of photography services, I’m your guy. I know the best places to go for the Quad Cities whether it be a headshot or a senior picture or an event.


If you can’t tell by now, I am very passionate about photography and I love to serve the Quad Cities area as a photographer or a creator of beauty. But of course, I also serve as a Quad City Photographer, Davenport photographer, East Moline photographer, Moline photographer, and Rock Island photographer. Whichever city you belong in, I’d be happy to serve you. If you want to hear more about me, check out my story, otherwise, I look forward to hearing from you soon!
