Most of my brides hire me to come to their location to create a look for just themselves, then remain by their side for touch ups and assistance during their photography, which fulfills my minimum day rate of $875.
My minimum can also be met with any combination of the following services:
Bridal Makeup & Hair Design
Bridal Makeup Only
Additional Ladies Makeup
Additional Ladies Hair Design
I'm an independent freelance artist and only require my minimum, however I can build a team from my exclusive network of preferred beauty professionals to accommodate any size party. My fee to vet, secure, arrange and schedule my team is $250 per artist required to accommodate your contracted services. Additional travel and transfer fees may apply.
Most of my services require 45 minutes each, and I'll need 15 minutes to set up, and 15 minutes for finishing touches.
For an average party of 6 total services (3 women for hair and makeup) I personally need 5 hours from set up to finishing touches.
Should your venue not be available at the time we'll need to begin your contracted services, you'll need to secure an alternate location, or we can work in my studio, located in midtown, Sacramento.
Should you decide to transfer your services from point A to point B to accommodate your photography schedule, there is a $125 time, travel, and transfer fee per artist scheduled to come to your second location.
For brides that book my "Photo Shoot Experience", my fee to transfer to your second location is included.
Absolutely! I field at least one call a week from panicked brides and wedding planners that have "a friend that does makeup" that cancelled last minute (AKA: there was no contract).
My service is not secured and your date will not be held or reserved without a signed contract and date retainer of 50% of your contracted/scheduled hair and makeup services.
This ensures that you are my only commitment on your wedding day, and that I am absolutely going to be there.
My service includes up to an an hour of local roundtrip travel within Sacramento county.
My travel fee beyond my included round trip is $125 an hour.
Hotel reservations are required for all bookings requiring more than 3 total hours of travel time.
I can personally accommodate up to 6 total hair or makeup services on my own. For example- you plus two for both hair and makeup.
If you'd like me to build a team for you, I require a $250 fee to vet and secure each additional artist required to accomplish your contracted services.
My makeup service is unique to each individual in my chair. My pro kit is carefully curated and stocked to accommodate any age, tone, type, and need. I start every makeup session with a thorough skin prep designed for your needs, and I create custom blended complexions for global tones. My goal is to create looks that are as flawless in person as they are in photos-with minimal products, that deliver maximum results.
If faux lashes or my airbrush are used to achieve your look, they are always included in my service at no additional cost to you.
If you follow me on social media, you'll know how obsessed I am with the cleanliness, organization, and beauty of my beloved pro kit. Only the best prestige and professional brands make the cut, and I definitely have my tried and true favorites that I've used for years to create the natural, long lasting beauty work you'll see in my portfolios.
Some brand names you may recognize in my makeup and hair kit- Charlotte Tilbury, Tom Ford, MAC, NARS, Stila, Becca, Hourglass, Face Atelier, Laura Mercier, Christian Dior, Davines, Oribe, R & Co, Bumble and Bumble, to name a few. I also use pro-preferred, performance driven professional brands and products like TEMPTU Pro Airbrush makeup, Kryolan, Viseart Paris, Alcone New York, and Ben Nye.
Vegan and cruelty free options are always available, by request.
I love a way a lash can enhance even the most natural makeup. I create custom temporary lash looks that are comfortable and natural looking, and they photograph beautifully. My lashes and design service are included with every makeup application.
I use both traditional and airbrush techniques in my work, and I often combine them to create my looks. An airbrush is a tool, not a product, so its superiority to traditional foundation is relative to the artist behind it! I personally think of my airbrush as any other important brush or tool in my kit, much like the way a photographer might use different lenses and tools to create and refine an image to achieve the desired result. My airbrush allows me to build coverage where needed with fine layers of product, so I usually reach for it for more hard-to-cover situations. I use a pro formula in mine that is long wearing, comfortable, and like every foundation I work with, it looks like skin, only better.
I specialize in creating beautiful up and down styles, with a focus on long wear, comfort (and of course, timeless beauty) for photography. Braids, twists, and romantic up-styles are my specialty, and each of my hairstyles are expertly prepped and coiffed using only the best prestige and professional tools and products required to maximize your hair's styling potential.
Many of the styles you see in my portfolios are created with clip in hair extensions, and faux hair pieces. I'm happy to consult with you to help you determine what will be needed to achieve your desired look, and direct you to the right resources for purchasing any faux pieces that will be required to achieve your desired style.
I'm an independent artist-not a cosmetologist-and I do not provide cuts, color, or any other barbering or salon services.
I do! I love using faux hair, and in fact, many of the hair designs you'll see in my portfolio and social media platforms are created using hair extensions and pieces. I'm here to help you decide what will be best for your desired look.
Not at all! I understand that many of my brides have a strong relationship with their salon stylist like I do.
If your hairstylist is experienced with weddings and the needs of bridal styling, you're more than welcome to meet my booking minimum with makeup services only.
I'd love to discuss your bridal beauty vision, and the unique needs of your wedding day. If my service is a fit, and my esthetic is in line with yours, I'll send you my contract to save your date, and together we'll start your beauty planning process!
I’m available in my Midtown Sacramento studio for trial session services by appointment Tuesday-Thursday only.
This optional service is the perfect opportunity for us to connect one on one and meet face to face to discuss your needs and create your ideal look.
