Beauty in the Making

Being "snowed in" gave me some free time to organize my photos and my portfolio....way overdue!! 

I came across some of my favorite Bridal Prep shots captured by the fantastic photographers I have worked with through the years.  It's funny how I've been told I make their job easier and yet they too make my job easier by providing the perfect shots of my work. I love seeing the final proofs and when possible always order a headshot or 2 of my brides.  Every so often there is a "Beauty in the Making" shot that just captures the moment... I can't resist and well, order a few of those too. 

And of course a big "thank you" to the photographers that send me courtesy photos. 

These are a few of my favorites:

One Of The Reasons I LOVE What I Do

My job is so rewarding and I am so thankful to be able to do what I absolutely love doing...MAKEUP!!
Over the years, I've received so many thank you cards and e-mails and there is nothing more rewarding than knowing you made someone so happy on one of the biggest days of their lives. And to actually be a part of their Special Day is truly an honor. Below is an e-mail I received a few weeks ago from one of my wonderful brides that I would love to share. Nicole writes:
Hi Denise,
Just wanted to send you a quick email cause I know things got a little crazy once the photographer showed up. Sorry this thank you is finding you so late. I can not thank you enough for the beautiful job you did on my make-up as well as with my mom, aunt and bridesmaids. Everyone looked absolutely stunning. I felt like I never looked more beautiful and i know my new husband thought the same. I felt amazing all night long and I have you to thank for making my day so special. You knew exactly how I wanted my make-up done and it went great with my hair and dress. I will not hesitate to recommend you to my other friends who are soon to be brides!
My pictures came absolutely beautiful because of you. Here is the link if you wanted to check out some of the ones with my makeup getting done.
Thank you again
