We are Jessie & Jason Emeric. We’re wedding photographers for happy couples in love. We’ve been photographing weddings together for over 10 years and we absolutely love what we do. We believe in telling the complete story of your wedding day and capturing all the must-have shots, but also the fun moments in between.

We love working with Makeup in the 702 and sigh a breath of relief when our brides tell us they’ll be using Makeup in the 702 because we know they’ll be in good hands. They will feel amazing and look gorgeous, making our job super easy 🙂

Awwww Thank you! I can’t tell you how much that means to both me and my team. It means a lot to us to create a memorable experience for both the bride and our colleagues.

Let’s take a moment to talk about planning. What do you want a planning couple to know about your business?

We’d like couples to know that wedding photography isn’t just a business for us. We are truly passionate about weddings. We seriously get excited for each and every couple we meet and have the privilege of photographing.

What are some of the misconceptions about your service?

Some people may not realize all the work that goes into wedding photography. Wedding photography is a lot more than just having a fancy camera and showing up at the wedding. There’s also a lot more that happens after the photographs are taken on the wedding day. A lot of work goes into post-production, making sure our couples have the best wedding photographs.

canyon_gate_country_club_las_vegas_wedding-03Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the biggest decisions a planning couple will make after all, wedding pictures are a cherished keepsake, passed down through generations, and the only commemoration of the thousands of hours and dollars spent to plan one of the most important days of your life. What are the benefits of using your service?

A few benefits of having us photograph your wedding day is that we love being there for our couples and it shows. Every wedding and every couple is different and we treat all our couples as individuals, as friends. We know being photographed can be intimidating for some folks, but know that we will make you feel comfortable, relaxed, and beautiful on your wedding day.

Every bride wants their photos to be as unique as they are I’m certain that must be a challenging aspect of your work. Where do you find your inspiration?

We find inspiration everywhere and anywhere. We love spending time outdoors and being open to new opportunities and fun times. It’s often in these moments when inspiration is at it’s best! We love bright colors, happy images, and keeping things fresh.

Creating the perfect wedding look! Wedding makeup doesn’t come easy every bride is different every venue is different and every photographer is different. Your makeup artist and hair stylist are the very first vendor you interact with on your wedding day, and we take that responsibility very seriously. We understand how vital our role is, especially for weddings, and we set the tone for the entire wedding day. But we don’t feel like that’s pressure, just an awesome responsibility.

At the risk of sounding a bit crass I have to put this out there, this is a service that you do not want to cheap out on. Hair and makeup can make or break the history of your wedding day photos. At the end of the day when the dancing is done and you’ve dashed off to begin your life anew the only thing that will be left to help you re-live the happiest day of your life are the magical moments captured in the photography.

With Las Vegas being the wedding capital of the World we meet brides from everywhere and this unpredictable desert weather can be a challenge in any season that is why highly recommend taking your makeup for a test drive so to speak and schedule a demo day.

We mentioned budget a moment ago, here’s a bonus tip for you where you can score a two-for-one. Schedule your demo the same day as your engagement shoot!

Photographers breathe a sigh of relief when they find out Makeup in the 702 is working with their Brides. Why? Because they know they’ll spend less time editing the photos which in turn means you’ll get your photos back quickly so you can share them with everyone that shared in your special day and more importantly those that were not able to attend.

To wrap our 50 shades of bridal makeup we thought we would leave you with some “Pinteresting” inspiration! P.S. Don’t forget to follow us on Pinterest and remember our guarantee! 15-hour water and transfer resistant!

Taking Care Of The Skin You’re In…

February 20, 2015

Comments Closed

meganAs a veteran makeup artist, I’ll make one statement loud and clear- GOOD SKIN AND GOOD COLOR GO HAND IN HAND. Again, good skin and good color go hand in hand. When a client has her best skin forward the end result of makeup can be so much more. Let me explain.

Take a look at the wall next to you. See its texture? I can paint the wall aka your face, any color. Blue, purple, yellow- it doesn’t matter- the texture of the wall aka your face will still come through the makeup. In order for the “paint” to be smooth, we must change the texture of that wall. Huh???

Okay so now, you are probably asking yourself how do I do that, Why can’t the makeup do that?

Well for starters makeup is not a miracle.  No kidding you say.  But skincare and good practices can make the difference immediately and over time truly change your programmed cells to become stronger, less hyper pigmented and of course get those smooth, if you will “sanded” surface.  It’s never too late or too early to start and continue a consistent skin care routine.  No matter the age, you can always improve your skin through the use of products.  Now remember to keep in mind there is not an instant miracle in a jar. Results are cumulative.  Your results will depend on the time you invest in taking care of the skin you’re in.  To get you started on the path to good skin care I thought I would share a few of my favorite things with you today.  These are 3 luxurious useful items that I personally use daily.

Shiseido UlitmuneThe autoimmune protects and prevents!

Like your body, your skin has an immune system that functions less efficiently with time, environmental exposure and stress. Ultimune helps boost skin’s multi-defensive powers while helping to strengthen its resistance to day-to-day damage and signs of aging. Over time, skin looks smoother and more resilient, making wrinkles less noticeable as your complexion begins to glow.

• Shiseido’s exclusive Ultimune Complex* is formulated with a unique blend of Bulgarian Rose Water, Aqua In Pool and Yeast to protect, strengthen, and maintain healthy looking skin.
• Formulated with a unique botanical power blend with Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract, Shiso and Thyme.
• For women of all skin types and all ages.
• In 4 weeks: firmness and resilience are improved, making wrinkles less visible.
• To use: Apply two pumps morning and evening after cleansing and balancing skin. Apply Ultimune before using targeted serums.

Shiseido White LucentNext, I use Shiseido’s  “White Lucent All Day Brightener”, The ultimate brightening solution for even-toned skin with perfect radiance,  Shiseido’s  “White Lucent All Day Brightener” diminishes the appearance of dark spots and hyper pigmentation.   The brightener helps repair the damage that I’ve already done and helps keep my skin stay youthful.
This brightening serum combines Shiseido’s advanced brightening technologies to achieve ultimately bright skin. Shiseido’s exclusive new complex, ProBright 4MRtm, has been developed based on the latest research for a superior combined effect* of overall brightening, and flawless, perfectly radiant skin.
The light, dewy texture absorbs quickly from the skin surface to deep within**.

Shiseido Ulitmate Sun Protection Cream SPF 50+Lastly sunscreen, I know, I know you know this already….Sun protection is essential!  We tend to forget that we need this year round in this brutal desert climate we live in.  Sunscreen doesn’t just protect from the harmful rays- it’s protecting your skin from the environment and all the yucky things floating around in the air.   I’m an active Mom just like many of you and “Shiseido’s Ultimate Sun Protection Cream” keeps up with me all day!   Swim, play, and enjoy the outdoors, knowing your sunscreen loves water as much as you do. Providing powerful protection for your skin, this innovative protective veil actually becomes even more effective when it comes into contact* with water. Discover powerful sun protection for the face in a nourishing, water-resistant cream that is comfortable and gentle on the skin without any sticky texture or white residue.

• Broad spectrum UV protection helps reduce the appearance of photo-aging with exclusive SuperVeil-UV 360™ technology.
• Formulated with WetForce technology, which reacts positively to water on contact*, activating additional strength within the protective veil.*
*Compared before and after soaking in water for 30 minutes. Be sure to reapply product immediately after water activity such as swimming or after toweling drying skin.

So there you go!  A few of my favorite things now what?  The reality, sure you go out you buy these products but how will you know if they work?  The answer simply is just use them!
