A Nashville Makeup Shoot - The Before & After!

It has been a busy week! We had a beautiful wedding last weekend at Cheekwood (will give a sneak peek on Monday!) and have been working on our IN-CAMERA: Shooting & Post workshop for this weekend! It's going to be a full house and we're praying the rain stays away!

Have a great weekend, and enjoy the blog below!

Some brides choose to do their own makeup for their wedding day. Some brides hire a professional makeup artist.

What do we suggest?

Hire a pro!! A professional artist knows all the tricks of the trade and it's their art, talent, and ability that will bring out the areas that flatter you the most, and conceal the ones that maybe you want de-emphasizing. :) A great makeup artist also knows how to apply makeup that looks awesome for photography (but doesn't look like overkill in person), which is a bit different than the normal every day makeup.

The other week we worked with makeup artist
Sherita Leslie in Nashville. Models were brought in to help show the latest trends in makeup. To read her guest post on Ashley's Bride Guide follow this link to Ashley's Blog.

The shoot took place in our studio space downtown Nashville...

Me working on some marketing while we wait for the models to get ready.
