New pics from Brandy's wedding

Brandy and her party were really easy to work with. I did cover up 2 tattoos on her and that was some trial and error. They ended up looking really good in the end. She looks classic and timeless.

Betsy's wedding- one of my fav's of the season :)

Betsy's wedding party were all incredibly nice and I had a really great day with them yesterday! We were crunched for time and still managed to get everyone we'd planned on plus her Mom and the one bridesmaid who had originally opted out. Total of 8 girls in about 3.5 hours. Pretty fast and it was the hottest day of the year to boot! I gave them a bunch of blotting papers and hope to hear that their airbrushing held up in the swelter of July's heat index. I did run into the church when they were getting some photos taken and give them all a dusting of my favorite new product "High Def powder" from ELF!! It's an almost exact duplicate of the Make Up For Ever one that costs $25, for only $3. You can probably only get it on their website since I didn't see it the other day at Target, where they carry part of the line. Also recommend their eyebrow pencil (the fat one), eyeshadow base, blush/bronze duo that is a NARS ripoff, and neutral lip liner pencil with brush. These are all in the "studio" line with black packaging that rivals MUFE and NARS and perhaps Smashbox. For girls on a budget, a real steal! And for the record: 90% of my kit is high end makeup. I don't, in general, like drugstore brands- though I find certain items that are exceptions and will give them a shout-out and room in my traveling kit. Enjoy the shots I took of these weddings!
