Excellent experience with Emily

After trying multiple makeup artists, I was so glad to have found Emily. I felt that she heard my preferences, questions and concerns. I was extremely happy with the results, and felt that she delivered the subtle, natural glamor that I was looking for. Her communication was great as well, and we stayed in touch throughout the whole process. Highly recommend Emily for bridal hair and makeup!

Amazing amazing experience!

I hired Emily for my wedding day and I am so happy I did! she was so great! from the moment we started communicating via messaging by getting back to me quickly, to the trial run, and especially on my wedding day! Emily went above and beyond! she knew I was very nervous on the day of my wedding with the stress of everything and she showed up early to set up everything and she even brought me a bottle of champagne! Emily is so friendly, super professional and so speedy! I kept throwing in new people that we didn't discuss due to some of my bridesmaids being stuck traveling and she was so flexible and made it all come together and on time! we looked and felt so glamorous like on the cover of a magazine! She even helped us with flowers for the centerpieces because the florist made a mistake. I can't say enough amazing things about my experience with Emily! I am so glad I found this gem and decided to book with her! It was the best decision! Book with Emily and have her make you look and feel like a movie star, I know I did!
