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.

Jocelyn & Lance “Once Love, Love forever”

Jocelyn and LanceIn today’s busy world sometimes brides and grooms have to get a little creative with their plans to accommodate the hectic schedules of their loved ones.  Today we’re happy to share with you the story of Jocelyn & Lance a mid December dream come true.

Having had the joy of meeting Jocelyn in September for their engagement shoot and makeup trial Makeup In The 702 was excited to be on location with the beautiful bride Jocelyn at the Elara on the day of their ceremony.  We enjoyed double the blessings with this happy couple since they had to double up on the days to include all of their loved ones.  We were blessed with being able to work with Jocelyn the next day at the beautiful Red Rock Resort.
Without further adieu we are happy to share with you the love story of Jocelyn & Lance

Jocelyn and Lance met at the Greater Philadelphia Sushi and Sake Meetup Group. Both were recent transplants to the Philly area. Both happened to see an email saying that this highly popular meetup had available seats for dinner at a local sushi place. Both went to the sushi dinner mostly looking to make new friends and didn’t necessarily expect to find love. In fact, Jocelyn wasn’t looking at all! After meeting a few times, Jocelyn and Lance realized they had a lot in common, enthusiasts of digital photography (though Nikon and Canon rivals), foodies, but also both lovers of being active outdoors with hiking, cycling, jogging, and rollerblading. Realizing that “when you know, you know” like Lance’s aunt liked to say, life quickly fell comfortably into place for the two of them and talk of a future life together began.

The wedding was planned for December, considering 12/13/14 or 12/14/14. Jocelyn’s father said that 12/13/14 would be the most auspicious date since in Chinese, certain numbers are lucky numbers because of what the number sounds like. So when the numbers 121314 are read individually, the numbers take on the meaning of “once love, love forever”, a very popular date for those of Chinese heritage. The only problem was that this date was extremely popular, particularly in a city like Vegas. So the perfect alternative was to have a small official casual wedding with family on 12/13/14 and a more formal ceremony and reception the next day. Double the celebration and double the happiness.

 

Congratulations and best wishes for a lifetime of happiness from all of us at Makeup In The 702

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!

Airbrushing-Dispelling the Myths

February 13, 2015

What is airbrushing?

Airbrushing is a very generic term used these days, similar to the word term “All Natural” in food. You must dig a little deeper to have a clear understanding of what it is and what the benefits are. I’m extremely passionate about airbrushing and want to help exploit some of the myths and of course raise the bar of standards in the industry to my fellow artists.

First, please know that I can only speak to the tools, training and products we use. Know there are imitations out there, and I’ll explain more in detail.

maxresdefaultWe’ve been utilizing airbrush for over a decade and in this period of time I’ve seen cosmetic companies claim to have airbrush foundation in an aerosol can. I’ve seen personal at home “compressors” sold on home shopping channel and everything in between. Please, allow me to explain in great detail what airbrushing is, it’s benefits and of course why we continue to be the leader in the industry.

First, airbrushing refers not just to the “end result” but the actual tool. A true airbrush compressor is about 25 pounds in weight and is used for many artist uses. The user can control the amount of air (PSI) that comes through and will do so based upon what they need the end result to be. Please do not be fooled by Home Shopping Network or At Home Use Products. That is not a true, professional compressor. I can blow foundation on you better than those contraptions.

hqdefaultSecond, airbrushing refers to actual foundation used. One cannot use a “traditional”  over the counter foundation in an airbrush compressor. The product will not pump through the compressor! Professional foundations used for airbrushing are a liquid almost water consistency.   They are costly for any artist to use, but the end result is hands down the only way to go for a client. Don’t be fooled by inexperienced artist that “base” down traditional foundation or “water” it down so that it will pump through a compressor. By doing that, one changes the inherit chemistry of the product itself, leaving the client with a less than finished end result and a foundation that will not last but a few hours.

Third, and this is one of the most frequently asked questions by our clients. Will I look cakey or feel like I have makeup on? Simply stated, no… How can something that is water based and applied with air feel heavy or look heavy. It can’t. Again based upon the principles from above.

So why all the hype??? Because it’s awesome!  Nothing like it!! We love that we are able to custom blend a clients foundation on the spot. Analyzing the true undertones of the skin as well as the type and condition. That mean’s a PERFECT match- EVERY TIME!!!! Not an almost match color swatch. We are able to take airbrush foundation past the face and down the neck, chest, decollate, arms and back- basically any piece of skin showing beyond the dress. Covering, tan lines, freckles and red splotchy sun damage- imparting a “photoshopped” appearance both in person as well as on camera.

Speaking of camera- HD friendly. High Definition cameras and film point out every flaw under even the best of lighting, almost like human eyes. They are unforgiving, but with HD foundation and airbrushing, you can look like the cover of Vogue in person and in photos.

product-guarantee-icon1Lastly, and this is super important for events in Las Vegas. We stand behind our work so strongly, that we will Guarantee 15 hour water and transfer resistant makeup. It’s 115 degrees out- no problem. Tears of joy- no problem.  Cutting up a rug on the dance floor- no problem- GUARANTEED.
