Love

 Love is beautiful, and timeless. We do love, love. Let us capture yours with our couple sessions and wedding photography.

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. 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. In the end, the looks we achieve are not only gorgeous, but customized- AND, I get to spend more time with each client. Who doesn't love that?

Posing vs Emotion

 

Emotive imagery is something not every photographer possesses the skill or interest to achieve. While my images are "posed", I'm more likely to guide you through a scenario and directorial demonstration of an action I want you to do- much like acting. Don't worry, I'll be there doing it with you the entire time. The experience is like no other, and the images speak for themselves.

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. Any photographer should believe this, and fall in love a bit watching you be in love. Your images should speak to that. With Beautifully Lit, they simply will.

While I have over 10 years experience photographing weddings, I find that doing them in bulk doesn't allow me the closeness I'd like to provide with each couple and family. That being said, I only accept 10 full weddings a year. We are now booking 2019. I'd love to speak with you about a beautiful couples Love session, Newlywed session, or even Intimatography session. Yes, of course we love Bridal sessions, and will photograph them all day every day.

Beautifully lit weddings

Welcome to Beautifully Lit Weddings! Please stop and stay for a minute. Beautifully Lit weddings are a tad different. I’m Amanda Roberts, Beautifully Lit Owner and Photographer. I have been a wedding photographer for 12 years. Over the last 12 years I have learned a thing or two about how to do weddings the right- and the wrong way. So now I have come up with a recipe for successful, beautiful and stress free weddings. First of all, you’ll never ever wonder if you’ll have a second photographer with Beautifully Lit. The answer is YES! ALWAYS!! Also, every single wedding we do comes with a complimentary engagement and bridal session. Why would I do that? The answer is that I’m a selfish girl, and I want to spend as much time together as possible before your wedding. I want to get to know you and your style, and vice versa. Being your photographer means that I will become part of your big day in a significant way. Adding these gems into your package means that we simply get more time together, and you get a continuous look in all your images across the board- which is something vital when it comes to building your album. No, you won’t pay extra for those digital files either. They are included.

How is it that I can do this and make a profit? That answer is the great mystery I’ve unlocked over the last 12 years. The solution is- I take on fewer weddings. In most people’s minds that doesn’t make sense! But here it is. I do 15 weddings a year- period. That number allows me to make you a priority and give you and your wedding the special attention it deserves. It also allows me extra time to do individual sessions and run my boudoir brand. That recipe makes for a happy photographer and ecstatic client friends, all around.

Destination

I kinda love to travel, and so does my team. Whenever the opportunity arises, we go! So yes, take us with you! In fact, when you do your session in a destination location, your hair and make up is complementary. YOU’RE WELCOME.

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 and meals. I’ve found this is a fair number, and one that not be paid until the week before the trip.

Albums, Payments and Deadlines

While we don’t require our couples to purchase their albums through us, we sure like it. It’s always fun to help you pick out the photos you love most and get those pages designed into a custom layout. Our albums are purchased by us from the top United States lab and of the highest quality. Expect to spend roughly $1500 on a complete 40 page coffee table quality album filled with your gorgeous images.

All albums must be ordered within 3 months of the wedding. That’s not to say that you cannot order later. However, design fees and shipping fees will apply if you wait. In other words- we want you to hurry and get your albums to show off! When an album is ordered, half is due before design begins and the other half is due when you are ready to order.

For all packages Beautifully Lit requires a non-refundable deposit of half the amount of your package upon booking. The remaining balance is due 60 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 us, a fee of $550 per session will be charged toward engagement and bridal sessions, if they have been completed and delivered.
