Jeff Dickey, Photographer

As a professional photographer and creative director who has traveled throughout the world, I attended the Miss Bikini pageant for the first time in 2018 as an Official Photographer and Judge. I was astonished with how well the event was organized and produced. Dawn and Chris, along with many others did a spectacular job in producing as well as directing an outstanding event. The Miss Bikini at Miami Swim Week 2018 was a well organized event and I look forward to attending for years to come. I encourage pageant participants, models, and fitness models to get involved in this event which is part of the fast growing Miami Swim Week!

Miss Bikini 2017

Faren Aimee, Miss Bikini US 2017

The Miss Bikini US 2017 pageant is one I will never forget! From the moment everyone arrived everyone was warm and welcoming. Dawn, and her staff, made sure every girl was taken care of with their rooms and accommodations. Event if a contestant traveled alone everyone was paired in a room so you could get to know one another. This was beyond a pageant, it was a family. We really made a bond, and a new friends from across the United States. The photographers and videographer were the most professional. Being comfortable and cared for, we were able to maximize our time in front of the camera for the best shots! With guidance every shot was in the best taste and reflection of our character, and representation, of our state. The weekend honestly went by too fast! It was upbeat, light, and nothing but positive vibes! It was truly a weekend to take full advantage of to learn. I am excited for the next group of girls to come through. They are in for the experience of a lifetime!


Karli Rabb, Model

Miss Bikini US was one of the best experiences in my life, not only did I accomplish something new, gain more publicity in modeling, and work with some of the best photographers across the us, I made life long friendships with the girls in the contest and I will be sure to visit them when I travel in the future. It was an honor to be surrounded with so many beautiful and sweet girls that have the same goals and high expectations for themselves as I do. The staff was the most helpful, hardworking, and most friendly staff I've ever encountered in a pageant, everything ran smoothly and safe. As your Miss Bikini Beauty 2017, I would like to say that being different makes a difference, so embrace your uniqueness!
