WED :: Mila’s wedding day beauty with Feather & Twine Photography at Piazza in the Village

17 Jan

Sweet Mila came to me wanting understated glamour and an elegant bridal look but most importantly, she wanted to look like herself. We kept her makeup really clean and fresh, adding a pop of color (purple!) on her eyes. We swept her dark silky hair up into a sleek chignon and sent her down the aisle to marry her prince charming. She treated her maid-of-honor to a day of beauty too! Enjoy!

My favorite thing about this image? Mila came to me for an appointment around 8:30AM on her wedding day … and here she is, cake cutting, late night and all, still looking just as flawless as when she left my chair early that morning!

Wed :: Claire’s vintage-chic Big Day with Loft Photographie in Kaufman, TX

11 Nov

Claire’s wedding details were so perfectly enchanted and charming, it is one of my favorite weddings to date.

Little white church with a steeple on the corner of Mulberry Street (in Kaufman, TX) for the ceremony, old town square bank building converted into a venue space for the reception, an antique french crown on her head, and a party that ended with dancing in the streets – clearly you can see why I love this vintage-chic wedding so much! Enjoy this adorable wedding and all the bridal beauty below!

And enjoy this special feature on the hair and makeup from the shoot. I incorporated the pink/gold theme into a shimmery, fully lined eye in deep burgundy, lighter pink and gold with glowing skin and bronze cheeks. Her hair is a little haphazard, a little messy, but big, full and loaded with volume.

I LOVE a bride who’s not afraid to go full on drama … and Amy totally rocks this smokey, sultry, smoldering look in a major way! With her porcelain skin, fierce freckles and sparkling green eyes … she totally nailed this fashionable shoot taken at one of my favorite spots – 3825 South Bowen in Arlington. Now pretty please, feast your eyes on all this goodness!

Glamorous Bridal Hair & Makeup :: Courtney’s Wedding at Event 1013

7 Jun

Someone! Cue the confetti, because this lovely girl just sparkles! Courtney’s gorgeous forest-fairy bridals at Grapevine Springs Park and her adorable (totally custom-EVERything) wedding at Event 1013 will make you swoon. Seriously, Courtney & Quinn …. cutest couple award, right here!

I typically am a little skeptical of styling bride’s hair totally down for their wedding day … so many factors are in play to ensure it holds the style. But Courtney’s sleek, romantic, Hollywood-inspired curls are just to die for… and they we just as beautiful at 10am as they were for her exit at midnight! Along with her curls, a soft smokey eye and pretty lashes were on Courtney’s must-have list.

Outdoor Photoshoot with Ben Q. Photography

5 Jun

Know what I love? Spur of the moment-ness … pretty models … outdoor photoshoots … White Rock Lake …. BEN Q. PHOTOGRAPHY. Which is why I am so in love with this shoot! We didn’t plan it, it just came together organically, and it is so beautiful and effortless! Ben was on a quest to start working with photo film (rather than digital), so we set out to White Rock Lake with our model (the gorgeous Caressa Carter) to start shooting! Her hair and makeup was so soft, summery and subtle. The no-makeup makeup look, with an emphasis on a punchy, sweet, coral-watermelon colored lip! Enjoy!
