jaime + adam.

Jaime has known my wife since their church camp days in elementary school. We are all often reminded by the random outbursts of church songs. 

I met Jaime my first holiday season with Bianca. From all the stories, I was very excited to meet this gal and she certainly lived up to the hype. 

No joke, my face hurts from laughing so much with every visit. 

Maybe a year later, we heard about this Adam guy. They appeared to really enjoy one another, and what more could you want for your friend? We were excited to meet this guy.

Halloween 2015, Las Vegas. We met Adam. 

Remember my face hurting from Jaime? Yea, now add my abs to the list too! They are cut from the same cloth.

Jaime and Adam truly make a dynamic pair! They are tailor made for one another. Which was confirmed by Adam's friends upon meeting them at their joint bachelor/bachelorette weekend. Again, hurting cheeks and abs before the weekend was over. 

When the two got in engaged during a vacation in Italy, we were overjoyed. And I even more so when she asked me to do her bridal makeup! 

It was such a special day and I really pampered her. From a cleansing facial massage to hydrating sheet mask, I gave Jaime the full luxury experience. She was a glowing bride and I felt honored to be with her on her special day. 

The day was beautiful, but what's even more so is their growing love for one another and now with their dog, Gordo. I feel honored to call this couple my dear friends.

clients + friends.

Friends who become clients. Clients who become friends. Both are so special to me. 

Regardless of the length of our relationship, the happiness of the person in my chair is my biggest goal. I achieve this by treating each bride like a dear friend. We will laugh, potentially cry, and I am going to be 100% real with you. 

This means that if you are requesting a look that I feel is unfitting of the wedding style, face shape or skin type, I will tell you. 

In the nicest way possible of course!

But this is why we do trials. To try! Maybe you have requested cool tones for your entire face while your wedding colors are all bright and cheerful. I would suggest that we try to warm up the face while still meeting your request with some cool tones on the eyes. 

A past bride really appreciated when I suggested to change the hair. While her gown was extremely chic and elegant, she had requested beachy waves due to a good ol' case of Pinterest over dose! She was elated with the finished look because it felt cohesive and truly her.

I am also so overly aware of how important my interactions with you are. This is YOUR big day! As soon as I walk in the room, I am gathering information on how your interactions are, what kind of music you are listening to, and your body language. 

What do I do with this information?

I understand how to make small changes to help you relax and enjoy yourself. If your girls are rowdy, I'll pump up the energy and jump in on the fun. But, maybe you are feeling a bit anxious but the music is fast and loud. I may as the person with the music to slow it down and lower the volume. Sometimes, a simple hand on the knee or hug is what's needed in the moment. 

My kit includes more than just makeup!

Originally my wife's friend, now mine too!

I am also going to make as many accommodations for you as possible. I don't want to cause you any stress.

Do you want to be outside? Let's do it!

Do you need to stop and eat something? Go for it! Take care of yourself. 

Did mom change her mind and want makeup? I will stay as long as I can to complete any additional applications. 

Want to change your entire look? OK! 

I am here for YOU!

What I am trying to get at is that you are important to me. All of you! The girl I have known for ten years to the girl who found me on WeddingWire!

You do not only hire me for my skills, but my heart too.
