Madison & Brandon

October 23, 2016

I’m so excited to be featuring this awesome couple on my blog today! I met Madison a few years ago at a shoot I was doing at American Eagle and got to know her pretty well over the course of the next couple years before she moved. I was so thrilled when she asked me to do her makeup in Philidelphia for her wedding day and of course, said yes! The happy couple was married on October 1st at the beautiful Union League and it couldn’t of been more perfect. It’s not often I get to do the bride’s makeup then go to the wedding =).  Madison looked absolutely stunning and SO so happy. I’m just honored that I got to be a small part in this very big day among her & Brandon’s family and friends. Here are a few of my favorite pictures and I truly enjoyed looking thru all {700} of them!

Valerie & Travis

October 7, 2016

I had the pleasure of working with this truly lovely bride on September 17th of this year. I was so excited when Val mentioned to me at her bridal trial that her wedding Photographer was Kristi Telnov — her work is just unreal, there is no other way to explain it! Val was such a beautiful bride and I couldn’t stop looking at the pictures of her wedding day, it looked so magical. I’ve never been to The Gathering Place before where I did her makeup that morning along with her bridesmaids and mom — wow, such a beautiful venue!  I also loved working with Christy from Simply Captivating Styling, she is an artist with hair and Val’s updo was a creation like nothing I’ve ever seen. I feel so blessed that I was able to be a part of this stellar group of vendors on Val & Travis’ big day!

Alexa & Brian {July 23rd, 2016}

August 26, 2016

I can’t get enough of my beautiful bride Alexa’s stunning wedding look! Not only is she drop dead gorgeous, she is such a sweetheart! I first met Alexa at my studio when she came for her bridal makeup preview in May. We discussed what she envisioned for her makeup and together came up with the perfect look for the big day.  I kept her skin soft, glowy and flawless using Temptu Pro airbrushing and added touches of liquid bronzer and highlighter for that dewy look. Her eye-shadows were a neutral palette of shimmer and matte tones with more emphasis on her dramatic lashes and eyeliner. Although she looked amazing on the preview day, I truly love how everything came together on the wedding day! It was such a fun morning getting all of her girls glammed up at the hotel and I’m genuinely thrilled I got to be a small part of her and Brian’s wedding day!

Ali & Nate

February 1, 2016

I’m really excited to be doing a blog post of this lovely couple, Ali & Nate! I first met Ali back in 2011, when I did makeup for her sister Samantha’s wedding. I was honored when she wanted me for her own wedding! It was a great morning at the Wyndham on October 31st where I did makeup for Ali and her beautiful bridesmaids.  Along with my assistant, Haley, I got to also work with some of my favorite wedding vendors.  Shari from Tease Salon did an amazing job with all of the hair and I can’t say enough about Michael Williams Photography…he is the absolute best!  I loved looking through all of the beautiful pictures from the day and thrilled that I was a small part of it!







Brandy + Brian

November 20, 2015

Happy Friday! I got a new computer and I’m officially back in business, thank goodness.  I couldn’t wait to blog this beautiful bride…I loved Brandy from the get-go and was excited to work with her for the big day!  As always, it’s nice going to one of my favorite venues — The Maple Heights Mansion in Shadyside.  You couldn’t ask for a better set-up with space and great lighting, which is a must in my book! I arrived early that morning {which was the perfect Fall day!} at the Mansion to do Brandy’s makeup, her mom and one of her beautiful bridesmaids. I hope you enjoy these awesome pictures by Sky’s The Limit Photography…they always do a wonderful job.  Thanks again to Brandy & Brian for having me be a part of their special day!

Lottie + Mark

October 24, 2015

I’m starting to feel right at home at Lingrow Farms — this venue is one of my favorite places to do makeup at. Beautiful scenery, perfect lighting/space for makeup and of course wonderful brides to work with!  This wedding was beautiful, Lottie has amazing taste and I loved looking through all of the wedding photos.  Meaghan Elliott Photography is so talented and I also had a chance to work with Studio E. Salon who did beautiful work on Lottie’s hair. I love seeing how everything came together for this fairy tale wedding and wish this beautiful couple the very best! ❤
