Real Wedding

With a background in dancing & pageantry, our gorgeous bride, Carin looked incredible wearing a sophisticated makeup look, emphasizing her natural beauty. I took extra care to keep her makeup very clean & precise, & our team was especially excited to show off her beautiful hair by giving her a sexy, loose curl (which paired perfectly with the elegant neckline of her dress). Carin is undeniably beautiful & her bridal party was one of the most fun groups we’ve had the pleasure of doing makeup for!

Leave it to wedding planner, Maria Socha from Sealed With A Kiss to coordinate a stunning wedding featuring bold red bridesmaids gowns & elegant white flowers amidst the gorgeous backdrop of Hotel Albuquerque. & thank goodness for the immeasurably talented Tony Gambino for capturing it all!

Ultra-Elegant Bridal Hair & Makeup

For this photo shoot I paired bold, elegant makeup with classic, romantic hair. I wanted to make sure that Emily’s makeup was noticeable enough to stand up to the beauty of the landscape & the bright, outdoor lighting. Then, I selected the hairstyle with her gorgeous hair in mind. I wanted to simultaneously emphasize the beauty of Emily’s hair while allowing it to flow softly in the gentle breezes of our lovely New Mexico landscape. I hope you all enjoy these photos as much as I do & maybe this hair & makeup will give you a little inspiration for your own wedding day or photo session. 🙂

Emily Joanne Photography provided these incredible images to capture how exquisite the bride looked in this gorgeous setting.

The September weather couldn’t have been more perfect – from prep to final touches on hair & makeup this was one of our most memorable weddings & we’re so excited to share these images.

Engagement Photo Session: Hair & Makeup.

We absolutely loved working with this naturally beautiful bride. In preparation for her wedding day, we provided her with a hair & makeup trial on the day of her engagement photo shoot. Any good photographer will tell you that a professional makeup application is critical for excellent photos, even if the desired look is very natural. A good photo-ready makeup application should obscure any dark shadows, highlight the cheekbones, and emphasize the eyes. We always lightly fill in the eyebrows & add some color to the cheeks because bright lighting & camera flash can cause the natural color in our faces to become washed out. We wanted this gorgeous girl’s natural beauty to shine through & we made sure to highlight all of her best features (Hello BOMBSHELL EYELASHES!).
