Bridal Boudoir Hair & Makeup

Some time ago, I received an inquiry from a lovely bride-to-be by the name of Brooke. After months of correspondence, we finally met for the first time at her bridal trial and let me tell you, it was a match made in heaven! Brooke and I corresponded for months, leading up to her wedding events, during which she shared what was important to her in terms of her hair and makeup; she gave me the basic guidelines for her bridal look and then granted me the creative freedom to run with it.

As cliché or cheesy as this may sound, the most important thing for me when working with a bridal client is to truly understand what the bride envisions and to really bring that look to life. I definitely put the pressure on myself with this because a wedding is one of those ‘once in a lifetime moments’ that you hope to cherish and remember fondly for the rest of your life.

 

One of the stunning images from Brooke’s boudoir shoot, shot by Warren McCormack Photography, was featured in Shutter Magazine, one of the photography industry’s leading publications, sold at Barnes & Noble.

Here are my own snaps of Brooke’s boudoir and bridal portrait look, starting with her Before & After. For her makeup, we went with a very soft and romantic look, enhancing her natural beauty. I did custom lashes for her.
