DO NOT USE THIS PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOUR WEDDING...they lost my family photos as well as the intimate family photos between my husband and I. They did not even take the time to call us to explain what happen, instead, they emailed us to tell us that the 90 minutes between the church and the reception, which is when nothing but magic is in the air were gone. The photographer was also an hour late and unprepared with the list of family photos that were to be taken...they requested the list prior to the day and did not have it the day of, it was very frustrating!

I paid a large amount of money to have my WHOLE wedding day captured and they missed the most important moments! I have NO picture of my parents and I on my wedding...what bride would be ok with that! They did not refund any of the money...I was ripped off...they kept ALL my money and did not deliver ALL of my pictures from my wedding!!! That's not what I signed up for!!!

Absolutely unprofessional and would NOT recommend them to ANYBODY!!!

Studio 1147 responded with the following comments:

It upsets me to see a couple so unhappy. I would like to start with the facts that are omitted during the numerous reviews that this one couple has had. I have been working for more than five years as a wedding photographer and this is my first experience with two people who are so incredibly unhappy. This couple came into to meet with Amaris and were on a limited budget so decided to go with two associate photographers for their wedding day. The day was covered along with some over time given at no additional fee to the bride and groom. After the wedding the cards were brought to the studio for editing a few days later and we found a card to be corrupted. We did in fact send an email explaining the situation and told the bride that I would need two weeks to complete the edit from the wedding day and I would get the images up asap to that they could see what was missing and we could assess the loss. This was completed on the schedule promised. In addition to a two week turn around the couple received their images on a disc with a full release as soon as the edit was complete. *as a side note the two shooters at the wedding did a wonderful job and the couple looks gorgeous and happy and the day is just beautiful. After the images were released I received a call again from the groom who wanted half of his money returned or they would not be "recommending" the studio to anyone as they come into contact with a lot of people. The couple was given a two week rush turn around, full access and release of their images immediately following the edit (rather than 6 months after the wedding) and though the contract includes 500 they were sent close to 900 finished print ready images. When I brought this to their attention I received a call from the bride telling me that she would like to hand pick the 500 images so that she could still have half their fee returned to them. She had already received the disc with all of the images several weeks prior. The best that I could assess from the situation is that the couple had potentially over spent on their wedding as saw this as an opportunity to reclaim some of what they had spent in any way possible. Each time we spoke the situation was handled professionally and with kindness and I am sorry that this couple could not be made happy however they do have gorgeous images from their wedding day and I wish them the best of luck in the future.

We used Amaris and Studio1147 for our wedding and could not have been happier! Amaris did our engagement shoot and our wedding day shoot. Amaris is so experienced with picking the perfect locations to really capture the emotion I wanted portrayed between my husband and I and our family and friends. Working with Amaris is so easy and laid back. She is fun to be around and is supper creative. It was so refreshing having someone around me all day that was as calm as Amaris was. I was literally begging her to stay and party when she went to leave the reception. Other than Amaris' skills of photography and editing, she is stellar at giving direction in a quick and clear manner to a group of people. Trust me when I see you desperately need this on your wedding day! Lastly, Amaris worked closely with the other vendors which was really helpful and made the day that much more fun! We will definitely use Amaris in the future and I recommend her to all of my friends.

We loved working with Amaris from atStudio. Being a trained photographer myself, I was definitely picky when it came to choosing a photographer for our wedding. I wanted to find someone with a commanding but understanding and creative personality who would share ideas, not just tell us what to do. Amaris really listened to what we wanted and had great ideas of her own. She was super flexible and wasn't scared off when I told her we wanted to visit three different locations in between wedding and reception. :) She was also willing to make some special camera/film arrangements that I personally requested (I'm a picky photographer!). We really appreciated her fresh and photojournalistic approach to shooting our wedding. For our families, she did a great job on the more "staged" images, too. Her packages were customizable based on preference and we got exactly what we wanted. In addition, the images were hosted online which worked well and made it easy for our guests/wedding party to order prints.

We continue to receive compliments on the photos - thanks for making me look so pretty Amaris! ;) It was the best day and we have the best photos to remember it. I have already recommended Amaris (atStudio) to many of my engaged friends, including my brother! Working with her was so easy and the results were stellar, I would recommend her to anyone.
