The best part of working in the bridal industry is being a part of someone’s special day. A day that marks a milestone in each persons’ life as they join in union under the name of love. As a die-hard romantic, I believe that love transcends through time and space.
Beyond the transcendental nature of love, working with brides has exposed me to a world of culture, vibrant colors and traditions. It is a huge blessing to be a part of such a special time in someone’s life and I am grateful for brides sharing their family values and cultures with me as well.
As a result, Indian weddings are some of my favorite celebrations to be a part of. Below are some snapshots of an amazing, vibrant wedding that filled my heart with joy.
Romance is in the air around this time of year as Valentine’s Day sets the mood and exudes energy full of love and passion. I love the thoughtfulness that goes behind the verbal affirmations and gift exchanges to simply remind your lover that they still capture your heart. The roses, the chocolates, the serenades, basically, I’m here for it all.
Some of my favorite styled shoots are in boudoir, where elegance meets sexy in the bedroom. The shoots can be simply for yourself or for your lover. I love seeing the transformations where clients are empowered, feel beautiful and look amazing. Victoria’s Secret’ models, watch out!
This shoot features Florence in the boudoir and the photography by the fantastic Brittany McLaren of Sunshine+Rosé. The vision was a modern take on the 60’s in the boudoir.
Au revoir chéri.
In the sunny month of June, we were honored to do the makeup and hair for our beautiful bride Gigi. The bride Gigi and her bridal party were one of the sweetest we have gotten the chance to work with. We received photos from her wedding and can't wait to show them off!
Take a look below:
Thank You notes are our favorites!!
We feel honored to be a part of such a special day in someone's life. These are the reminders to appreciate the little things in life and truly love what you do.
Thank you Gigi!❤

Here's a snapshot of the recent shoot we had with BayFashion Magazine...The Fairmont has such a gorgeous view of San Francisco! Stay tuned for the official shots that are to be published in BayFashion's Wedding Edition Magazine coming out soon!
Over time, we have come to meet tons of people who have been in all types of situations with the artists that they hire for hair and makeup services... We have heard amazing stories and some... ehhh not so nice.
Its important to choose an artist that can fit your dreams! One that can fulfill your vision and desired look because feeling gorgeous and glamourous is priceless. Be sure to have open and fluid communication with your artist, so that they can accomodate to YOU.. not the other way around!
Here's a list of some things to expect from your artist!
- A "look" you love
- Beautiful, timeless makeup
- Long-lasting, impeccable hair
- On-time for services
- Work in a timely fashion
- Open to communication and feedback
- Great customer service
- Clean, CLEAN brushes and tools
- Quality products
- Prepared with necessary tools
- Professional but fun attitudes
Getting dolled up should be fun experience... sometimes unevitable things come up during the day but your artist should help the day run smoother all together! Not be the cause for more stress. Be stress-free!
We pride ourselves in being able to provide services in an industry we love and we hard work daily to meet your wants and needs. We always try to show as much love, patience and professionalism as possible!
