It’s Engagement Season! Elevate Your Look with Pro Hair & Makeup

Let the beautiful bridal moments begin!

The holiday season truly is the most wonderful time of the year! Beyond the joyous celebrations and time with those we love it’s the busiest time of year for wedding proposals. We’re reeling with excitement and anticipation to meet 2022 brides to be.

Should you get professional hair and makeup done for engagement photos?

It’s a question we hear often this time of year.  We always recommend that our brides get their hair and makeup professionally done for their engagement session.  If you are still debating whether or not to have your hair and makeup done for your engagement photo shoot here’s a few reasons to say YASSSS! Your engagement photo shoot is most likely the first time you’ll have pro photos done together, which frankly can be a little intimidating.  Having professional hair and makeup gives you that little confidence boost that we all need once in a while, which totally POPS in your photos!

Engagement photo shoots have evolved, you can design your dream shoot at virtually any location and truly make the experience a personalized expression of your love. The more casual setting of your engagement shoots calls for hair that is not over styled,  soft curls, beachy waves, boho chic and half up/half down styles are all great options and all offer that timeless and classic look.

Professional hair styling and makeup artistry makes all the difference, especially in outdoor or low-light scenarios. Outdoor lighting is brutally unforgiving!  The suns bright rays accentuate every little line and imperfection.

Long gone are the days of the department store “studio” backdrop photo shoots… Todays engagement shoots can include clothing changes, props, stunning venues and brilliant outdoor landscapes offering endless opportunities for flawless, wall worthy photos that will be admired for generations to come.

If you’re still on the fence regarding professional hair and makeup for an engagement shoot it may help if you think of them as more than engagement photos.  Your engagement photos can and probably will be used for so many things, including your announcements, invitations, a wedding website, social media and perhaps even part of your wedding décor or chachkies. 

Tip… Schedule your hair and makeup trial to coordinate with your photo session! And  Above all have fun with your engagement photos!
