Do I need a hair and makeup artist?

When I was planning my wedding, I thought, “I want to look like myself on my wedding day, so shouldn’t I just do my own makeup? 

I ended up doing my own makeup and it was fine! But looking back now, after some time in the wedding industry, I realize that having someone else do you hair and makeup are beneficial in a few ways. You’ll have decreased stress the morning of your wedding. Someone else is responsible for how you look. Who doesn’t want that stress taken away?! How about every day of your life! That person is a pro and does this for a living. The list of vendors we give you below will be artfully skilled at providing the perfect look you’re wanting to achieve. And don’t worry, if you’re wanting to look closer to what you normally do, they can help you with that too.

Also, one thing I learned from a personal photo session years ago, was that having your makeup a bit more dramatic than you think you need, will look more photogenic in photos. This is especially true the way I photograph brides, which is a lighter, more airy look.

We love this look that Bangs ‘n Blush created for Susan’s maternity session at Bleak House. Very simple and light, yet bold enough to highlight her beautiful features.
