indexCongratulations on your engagement!  Now what! It’s time to build a team!!  Today we have some AMAZING photos for you from Alt F. Photography of the team Rebecca & Ross put together for their dream day!

Staring with the dress! Absolute layers of lovely from Vera Wang.  Who says you have to go with traditional white shoes these days?  Rebecca chose these stunning royal blue beauties from Manolo Blahnik a perfect choice! I do just love the simplicity of Rebecca’s bouquet of white roses from Naakiti floral.

Rebecca and Ross chose the Bellagio Hotel and Casino for their venue.  Perhaps one of our personal favorites!  Using wedding services provided for by the hotel streamlined many options for the planning couple such as arranging for the cake and linen coordination.

Last, but certainly not least on the list of incredible vendors coordinated for this wedding is yours truly Makeup In The 702.  As your makeup artist and your hair stylist are generally the first vendor the bride works with on her day we take that responsibility very seriously as we often set the tone for the others for the day.  Rebecca was just an absolute joy to work with.

Using a wedding coordinator, especially if you are a destination bride can really help relieve the stress of it all.  Rebecca and Ross chose Andrea Eppolito Events. As you can see there day turned out picture perfect!

Destination Happily Ever After

Planning a wedding is an emotional and stressful life event.  We want so many people to share our joy and happiness with us.  Like many planning couples the story of Kelly & Angela is the same.  Today we bring you the story of Kelly & Angela a destination wedding couple from Vancouver,BC.

Quote from their wedding blog
Feb 2013 to Oct 2014-Planning commences for the event of the YEAR! The wedding! The wedding that everyone wanted to come to and see “two chicks” get hitched. What started as a 150 person local wedding on Granville Island to a rustic 80 person event at the family cabin to a quick getaway to the Vancouver Island….the final decision was made when Nevada legalized same sex unions. They jumped at the opportunity and decided to elope with just close friends and family by their side in Las Vegas.

It all began with friendship and workplace camaraderie in the Surrey Emergency Dept 6 1/2 years ago.  Their friendship developed over attending numerous after hour events, a mini vacation to Penticton and working long night shifts together.  Over the years they traveled to many cities together; Las Vegas, New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville and Los Angeles to name a few.  They renovated a house to build a place to call home together, experienced joy and hardships together and discovered how easy it was to love and be loved.

Which brings us to today! Makeup in the 702 had the pleasure of being a small part of this love story and we are so grateful to have met this wonderful couple. No one can express their experience with us better than those we have had the pleasure of working with. Here’s an excerpt from a review submitted by Angela & Kelly regarding their experience with the Makeup in the 702 team.

WOW!!! I don’t know where to begin. I choose Makeup in the 702 for my wedding day as I loved their portfolio as well as their amazing competitive rates. Megan was very professional from the start to end. The communication was amazing. As a destination bride from Vancouver BC, I was unable to do a trial run for hair and makeup…So I had a lot riding on them! They were my first vendors of the day and not going to lie, my heart was racing. I opened the door to my hotel room and to my surprise I was greeted by Megan, Crystal and Kiera (I was only expecting Crystal and Kiera). Megan immediately calmed my nerves but telling me she “couldn’t miss being a part of my special day”…From that point on I felt like a princess. Having an extra stylist was great as my sister decided last minute to get her hair done….She was ecstatic and loved the final product. I can’t stress enough how amazing these women were, they never made me feel rushed, they were so pleasant and engaging to be around.

These ladies are the real deal!!!! They know their stuff and work with your chosen look for the day. I’ve had my hair and makeup done before and never have I looked so good. Rates are amazing!!!! Pricing was all inclusive and it  included full makeup application, false lashes, hair styling, extensions and my own take away lipstick….not to forget my partner had her makeup done too all for that price.

I could go on and on and on! Thank you ladies for making us look amazing on my special day…….

Thank you Kelly & Angela for choosing us to be a part of your day!  We wish you a lifetime of happiness and joy!  Cheers and congratulations!

Senior Street Team Red Carpet Fabulous

May 22, 2015

Comments Closed

Few moments in our life compare to our Senior year of high school.  It’s a time of our life where it’s both the end and the beginning.  Friendships are formed that will last us a lifetime and cherished memories are made.  A few weeks ago we shared some fantastic wedding photography with you from Myrna Loy Photography, today we are back with Myrna to talk about her Senior Street Team program.

Myrna, how did the Senior Street Team get started?

After taking a workshop geared toward Senior Portraits early this year, I fell absolutely in love with every part of it! So much so, that I decided to create one heck of a program for my Senior Street Team.

What does the Senior Street Team get for participating?

My seniors are investing in an awesome experience that they will remember forever. They will feel like a celebrity with all the outfits, locations, pro hair and makeup. The  Senior Street Team is essentially my models for the duration of their senior year. I designed this program to allow these girls to be able to have extra fun and get some pretty awesome photos during their senior year. You only go through this time once in your life, so I wanted to make this crazy awesome. To make sure that we kicked it off in style and set the standard, I called upon the beautiful and talented Megan to help out with my Street Team’s first shoot of the year.   My girls LOVED the look you created for them and they all looked so red carpet fabulous!

All my senior clients, not just my street team, get some pretty awesome gifts and all sessions include professional makeup. It is so stinkin’ awesome and I can’t wait to design the perfect senior session for other amazing gals and hand them their swag bag.

With the graduation season now upon us will you be putting together your team for 2016 soon?

I have NINE summer senior sessions that are ready to fill and those that fill those dates up before the end of May will get a $50 credit toward their senior portrait order.

Orange Soda Photography The “Pop n Fizz” in Photography

May 15, 2015

Comments Closed

Can I just start by saying how much fun it is to work with Orange Soda Photography!  Chris and Alicia are as cool as an ice cold orange soda on a hot summer day.  They make you forget you are even at work.  During a photoshoot there is little time to really get to know the backstory of all of the incredible people we get to work with in Las Vegas so we are truly grateful today to be able to share a little bit with you about Chris and Alicia from Orange Soda Photography.

I asked Chris and Alicia to share a little bit about their business and a memorable experience they have had with Makeup in the 702 and this is what they had to say.

We are a husband and wife team here at Orange Soda Photo. We both owned our own photography business before we met. We met at a wedding show in 2008 and it was true love at first sight. We knew we belonged together so we immediately combined our businesses and Orange Soda Photography was born. Photography is all we do, and we have a great passion for the field of photography, continually trying to improve our knowledge and skill.

We have had the privilege of working often with Make Up in the 702, however, one of our most memorable experiences together was when we used Make Up in the 702 for our own maternity session. We are so accustomed to working together on events, that it was an awesome experience to be the one being pampered. They did an incredible job on Alicia’s hair and make up, and only solidified even more why we love them so much.”

 

What would you like a planning couple to know about Orange Soda Photography?

We love everything we do. For us, every aspect of this is positive. We get to meet cool and fun people who are excited about their wedding, or their creative portrait or family session. We get to photograph and experience people coming together to celebrate and share with each other and then we get to edit those images and deliver them to excited people who always love their images. How can you not love doing something like that?”

Do you think people have misconceptions about professional photography?

The most common misconception is that people think they’re not photogenic, when in reality is has more to do with the photographer, lighting and posing than the subject.

One of the statements we often hear is usually a variation of “I really don’t like my photo being taken” or I don’t look good in photographs”. We overcome that by engaging ourselves into the situation, we never see people as a job. We see the actual people with their own stories and backgrounds and bring that personality out. It’s one of the things we love, being part of the human experience on some of the happiest days of people’s lives.”

 

What are some of the benefits of choosing Orange Soda Photography?

A truly positive experience and photographs that aren’t like the norm, but still tell the story without being dated. We both started in film photography in the 80s and carry much of that over today. We’ve been photographing people since 1986 in one form or another and you don’t keep doing that unless you absolutely love what you’re doing. Chris started with his camera in the Army in Central America and Alicia traveled Europe and the US with her SLR and 3D cameras and combined we bring a set of experiences like few have.”

You’ve been doing this a long time, where do you two find your inspiration?

We find inspiration everywhere, but two favorites are high fashion and film noir. Chris’s grandfather worked in the movie industry during the depression as a cameraman, and that’s definitely carried over. Alicia often finds inspiration in the joy of family life and the strong bonds it brings.”

Any final thoughts for our readers?

Every time we see that Makeup in the 702 is the MUAH for a wedding or shoot, we’re so happy because we know that our brides will be well taken care of, and will look truly amazing.”

Awwww now you have me blushing like a bride…. thank you so much for sharing with us today.

Once in awhile, Right in the middle of an ordinary life, Love gives us a fairy tale.

This weeks blog post is pretty near and dear to my heart. My step son Jace has asked my very dear friend Kylie to marry her. The wedding is set for September 19th In Pensacola Florida where they both grew up. I’ve know both these amazing hipsters since before I married my own husband TJ, Jace’s dad.

Picture6

Let’s rewind 10 years before Kylie was 21 and as Jace was just moving to Las Vegas. Even back then I knew these 2 had an electric relationship with honor, trust and complete and utter love for each other.  These two have been together longer as boyfriend and girlfriend than many marriages last- now that says something right there. They’ve withstood 3000 miles distance, job changes, moves and of course the everyday things that happen in life. All the while staying very committed to each other with a love that is so recognizable that anyone could see.

For years my husband and I wondered if they would “ever get married”.  Even when asked Jace and Kylie would say- were great just the way we are and it’s true they were perfect just as they were. Throughout the years together they’ve built a home, raised 3 of the cutest pitbulls you’ll ever meet and supported each other careers and nurtured each other to the fine young adults they are today. Jace describes themselves as “modern hippies”.

Picture2

Jace own’s more VW’s than I can count and recently Kylie is on the VW kick with the purchase of her new car.  On any given day you’ll find these 2 soaking up everything las Vegas has to offer on the music and art scene with a craft beer of choice or an Old Style in their hand. They love to be down town and never miss a First Friday.  I can honestly say I’ve never met anyone, much less 2 people that soak up so much of life and live it to the fullest each and every day.

Picture5

Well now the day has finally come this very commitment couple decided to take it to the next step. Marriage… I’m delighted to share with you the images from their engagement session with Taylored Memories Photo taken right here in Downtown Las Vegas in the Arts District and the Arts Factory. The love and joy they share jumps out in these photos.

Congratulations to my son Jace and so excited to call my dear friend Kylie daughter. You both have made a great choice and we are all looking forward to witnessing the I do’s… yes I’m crying even writing this.

It’s always fun to start the year and the wedding season in Las Vegas by participating in the Las Vegas Bridal Spectacular.  Not only do we get to meet and chat with hundreds of newly engaged brides and their loved ones we also get to kick of the year with our friends in the Las Vegas Wedding Network.

We had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with more than 250 Brides with our “What do your lips say about you” event. We read each clients personality by evaluating the lip color they chose as well as the lip shape.

Lip products we sponsored by Fashion Show Macy’s Shiseido

Picture2 Picture1
This years event was made even more extraordinary by our peers in the Las Vegas wedding industry with the winning of a Dazzle Award.   The Bridal Spectacular Dazzle Award is a peer to peer award and is given based on the votes cast by the exhibitors in the show.   It was an honor to be recognized by our peers in the wedding industry. This vote meant that not only was our event extraordinary but that our presence was felt by the wedding community and that the design of our booth was sought after.

Each season we are selected by Bridal Spectacular to sponsor their fashion shows. Our attention to details as well as being the beauty trendsetters in Las Vegas land us this honor every season. quite honestly we would not have it any other way. It’s more than enough to host an event at the booth, but then add 9 hair and makeup in a 2 hour time frame to the mix and what do you get- PURE BLISS!
