About LIGHT UP - Wedding Photography

Andy Maldonado


My mission is to create wedding photos that tell the story of how the day unfolded. Portraits that capture the feelings and emotions of the day with lots of natural light, lots of natural smiles, and lots of natural moments. I offer direction when needed, but otherwise, I help things flow so I can photograph the day as it unfolds in front of my camera. My editing style is considered "light and airy" with a photojournalistic approach and a touch of fine-arts portraits for a healthy balance of art and craft. The colors are inspired by film tones with an emphasis on beautiful skin tones and lush minty greens. The highest level of service.

I am unusually gifted at this. Sometimes I surprise myself when I look back at weddings that I photographed when I first started and I'm really proud of them. In 2017, I was rear-ended. I was out of a car for 2 months so I was home on the computer when I came across a job post looking for remote photo editors. It turned out to be a serendipitous situation because I got the job. During that year I edited over 1,000 weddings for some of the most talented wedding photographers in the US. My skills went to a whole new level after having the opportunity to examine closely so many luxury weddings and apply those concepts in my work.

    Hiring Light Up Photography was one of the best decisions we could have made for our wedding celebration! Andy was so easy to work with, he communicated very well and followed up (which I appreciate because planning an event, things get lost!), and provided us with an amazing experience overall! He captured our vision perfectly and took photos of things I didn't even think about but I am so happy to have them now to look back on. His editing style is also my absolute favorite, every image we got back was consistent and perfect. I appreciate Light Up Photography capturing our special day. We will cherish these photos forever! I would definitely hire Light Up again!

    Andy was so great to work with! My husband and I were very comfortable talking with him and having our pictures taken by him. Both the candid-type photos and the posed photos turned out incredible. He made all the photos look so colorful and beautiful, which is exactly what we wanted. We would absolutely recommend light up photography to any couple looking for a photographer.
