Wedding Tips and Hints: face to facewedding planning advice

When it comes to your wedding day, you want to look your best. Besides having the perfect groom/husband-to-be (swoon!), you have the perfect dress, the perfect shoes, the perfect accessories, the perfect everything….right? You are going to look AH-MAY-ZING! Dare I use the term picture perfect? Ok, where am I going with this? Do not, I repeat, do not leave your face, your makeup, your best representation of yourself to anyone but a professional. Investing in a makeup artist is a choice every bride should make….second only to hiring a super fun, ultra cool photographer. (wink. wink.)

Now, I’m no expert on makeup, skin care, or anything remotely relating to the subject, but what I do know is that I will be photographing you all day, from start to finish. Hiring a makeup artist will ensure that you will be looking fresh and fabulous all day and, let’s face it ladies, we want to look that way every day….am I right? You wouldn’t want to risk looking anything less than GOR-GE-OUS on your the day of your WEDDING!  Not only that, but most makeup artists have a background or certification in skin care, so it’s their job to know what colors work best on your face based on your skin tone, eye color, hair color…you name it. And let’s be honest….how many of us have successfully created a “smokey look” on our own eyes? Admit it, it was a error in judgment to even try! 

When I got married, I wanted to look fairly natural, with a touch of drama. And my girl, my makeup artist (also my sister) — well, she done me right. But maybe your theme is retro chic a la Mad Men; you’ll definitely need a professional to achieve that period inspired look. Or maybe you want glitz and glamour. Or modern style with a vintage twist. These are all themes that you’ve worked hard to create for your wedding day, and your makeup artist will help you achieve that same look on you.

A makeup artist will help you feel confident and beautiful on your wedding day, and you’ll look slammin’ in your photos to boot! Win, win ladies!!
