What steps are required to book your services?
After responding to an initial inquiry via e-mail, a final count of services is requested and a contract is sent out along with a retainer invoice. As a general guideline, your booking is not secure and your date is not reserved until your signed contract and the requested retainer is recieved.
What products do you use for weddings?
While there is a broad range of consumer driven products available, the items utilized in my kit are of professional quality and have been carefully selected for their ability to photograph beautifully while still maintaining a natural, fresh finish. To ensure durability throughout the day, all of the products that I use are professional grade, long-wearing,and waterproof. Selected brands include Temptu Airbrush Foundation, NARS, Charlotte Tilbury, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, RCMA Makeup, Tom Ford Beauty, MAC Cosmetics, Glossier, Elizabeth Arden, Make Up Forever, Bobbi Brown, Dior, and Chanel
What If I don't usually wear a lot of makeup? Will I still look like myself?
The answer to this is always "Yes!" Makeup is made to enhance and define a person's natural features, not to cover or change someone's personal identity. My goal is always to preserve the integrity of your individual beauty by enhancing your features in a natural yet sophisticated way, while still giving you a glamorous bridal look.
Do you offer any discounts?
In order to maintain the highest level of service, my prices are firm and non negotiable.
