Love

 Love is beautiful, and timeless. We do love, love. Our team is amazing at weddings. From the bride all the way to the flowergirl, mothers and all the pretty maids in a row, we have you covered.

The Devil in the Details

 

I learned years ago that I am, in fact, a perfectionist. More importantly I learned what I like and don't like as far as make up artistry in my portrait images. For 15 years I owned a photography studio in the heart of Fort Worth’s art district. After years of hiring freelance artists for shoots I learned what goes into making a woman look fabulous in front of the camera and the according light. With that bit of information, I taught myself and employ other artists who work the way I do. Of course, I never do anything halfway. I sent myself to school to get the knowledge and certification needed to be a trusted professional in the event and styling community. In the end, the looks we achieve are gorgeous, customized- AND, I get to work with my industry peers. Who doesn’t love that?

Glamourous

 

Natural beauty is definitely something every woman possesses. With my years of expertise through the lens I’ve learned how make up photographs in different lighting. Boudoir and glamour photography requires a special touch, and it’s helpful to have an artist with this tried and true know-how. Trust us to bring out the best version of you possible.

Falling in Love

 

Love is my absolute favorite thing. Falling in it. Old, new- absolute and unchanging. Love is difficult, complicated, hard and so wonderful. The wonderment of love stands strong and beats to the drum of something so endearing that the world in its' entirety strives to just touch upon it. Love. To capture love is nothing less than an honor. It's not a job, or a hobby. It's a privilege. With a naturally glamourous look we can give you the elegance that will make you shine on camera but still make you look like, well…. you!

While I have over 15 years experience photographing weddings, I have now been making brides beautiful with hair and make up styling for three. Having worked with crews from Chanel, Estee’ Lauder, Aveda and Clinique, I’ve learned tips, techniques and tricks that I both love and don’t. We know how to stick to a timeline, how to be prepared, and how to make you completely perfect in plenty of time for photos.

Having been in the industry for over a decade, it’s easy for us to work a seamless timeline and help make your day as easy as possible. No one wants to be that hair and make up artist that holds up the wedding party from getting photos done, right?

We conduct trials for every single wedding we do. We want you to be completely happy with your look. The trial also gives us a feel for each other. My studio is located in Fort Worth. However, I can come to you for a trail if you can’t come to me (there is a fee associated with that, though).

Destination

I kinda love to travel, and so does my team. Whenever the opportunity arises, we go! So yes, take us with you! We absolutely can cover you at your destination wedding. In fact, when you book us for destination coverage you’ll receive hair and make up for your rehearsal dinner on us!

We simply ask that you cover expenses as follows:

  • 2 nights stay at a hotel within 5 miles of the ceremony location/ or with other guests. This means we arrive the day before the ceremony and leave the day after.

  • 2 round trip airline tickets

  • $500 per diem. Being gone is expensive, and so is Uber, airline fees and meals. I’ve found this is a fair number, and one that not be paid until the week before the trip.

For all services Beautifully Lit requires a non-refundable retainer of half the amount of your package upon booking. The remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding date. We accept payments by cash, check and credit cards. We do not accept PayPal.

*the non refundable deposit may be transferred to other sessions or moved to another date, if available by Beautifully Lit. Should you cancel your wedding with Beautifully Lit, your retainer fee is non-refundable.

*Beautifully Lit will require a credit card be kept on hand for after-event processing of any leftover incidental charges such as parking or day-of-event add-ons. You will never be charged without notification.
