Wedding makeup is an important aspect of the planning for every bride’s special day. Whether you decide to do it yourself, using guides like this one from Marie Claire – Wedding Make up tips, or select a professional make up artist, you want it to look perfect in your wedding photography too.
Professional make up artists like my friend Kylie Jonkman know how to work with you to both meet your requirements, complement your dress and also make sure that everything works well in front of the camera too. Make up artists know certain products work better than others and it’s this sort of knowledge that makes using a professional so worthwhile.
I recently took up Kylie’s offer of putting together a bridal make-up shoot, with two models I’ve not had the opportunity of working with previously – Esther and Francesca.
Although I had hoped for the weather being on our side and have a location based shoot, that wasn’t to be the case, so we opted for a natural light shoot in the studio instead. This helps to replicate just the sort of conditions you often have to work with when shooting bridal preparation and also shows how lovely natural looking make-up can be in such light. Imagine how you will look wrapped in the glowing light coming in through your hotel suite window preparing to head off to your wedding ceremony.
It was a great session and it’s always good working with Kylie and I’m sure I will have an opportunity to do some more fashion portfolio or even wedding shoots with Francesca and Esther in the future.
If you want Kylie to provide your wedding hair and make-up, then you can get in touch with her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course if you’d like me to photograph your wedding in Cheshire or Flintshire, please get in touch through the contact form above.
