a few words from

I absolutely LOVE this wedding and Alyssa’s Old Hollywood look. I feel like I am looking at photos from a moviestar’s wedding in the 50’s!hair, Jen Nallyimages, Michael Bambino

A few weeks ago, my good friends (and, incidentally, both amazing photographers) Sherri and April stopped by the shop before heading to a Krewe party. they had amaaaazing hair by Philip Nathaniel Saunders. I was immediately inspired. April was scared initially of the violet lip, but she came around in the end. I strove for […]

These were worth the wait. Tine sent me a teaser mere hours after the wedding and I have been tapping my foot ever since. Lindsey has to be one of my funniest, raunchiest brides ever, and I mean that as a compliment. And at the same time, one of the most thoughtful. she remembered my […]

Kelly has to be one of my most stylin’ brides ever. I told her I am dying to get a pinup style boudour shoot together with her; her figure and face just cry out for that whole vibe. She adores makeup and is totally fearless when it comes to trying new looks. Her hairpiece and […]

(veil, that is.) Thank you Mike Bresnen for sending over these brilliant images. Steve Zugelter was on hand with his videography skillz, as was Courtenay Lambert on florals. Isn’t Julie just stunning? I wish more brides would let me do this bold an eye; she wears it sooo well. I was very touched by her […]

Drew’s makeup has just been rocking my world since she has been out promoting Grey Gardens. the retro clothes, the pincurls. Methinks I have a girlcrush-as long I don’t have to listen to her… If one of my brides went with this look to the left here i would be doing a happy dance.

Heather has a fabulous sense of style and I have had the chance to paint her face several times; at her trial run, at Steph Carson’s open house, and […]

I had some of you beg for some closeups of the lovely Tess, and Tine was kind enough to oblige! Given my obsession with Mad Men, I was thrilled to be able to give her this retro look.

Okay is she a bombshell or what? Even without makeup, Tess looked to me like a movie star out of the forties-and when she told me her vision for the wedding look, I was so excited! – images from Tine Hofmann, artist extraordinaire. Tess is not only beautiful to look at but is just Good […]
