Kala is an incredibly talented artist. I wasn't completely sure of what I wanted, but she was flexible and able to work with me to make me look fabulous on my wedding day. My make-up and hair were above and beyond what I could have imagined! I've already been recommending her to all of my friends!Sent on 12/15/2016

When you think of your big day make-up and hair are so important to looking and feeling your best. Kala absolutely nailed by Bridal look, my hair and makeup were both stunning and exactly what I wanted. On the morning of my wedding I woke up with two huge blemishes on my face and Kala is such a pro that she covered them flawlessly and you couldn't see them at all or in any of my photos!Sent on 01/11/2017
Leading up to my wedding she answered all of my questions in a timely manner and was super helpful and easy to communicate with.
Not only is Kala talented she is such a pleasure to work with, her kind spirit and infectious energy was exactly what I needed on the morning of my wedding. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs their hair and makeup done for their wedding, engagement shoots, etc!

There is no doubt in my mind that Kala is the best in the biz. Not only was she so warm & fun to work with, she was professional and made sure I got exactly what I was envisioning. You want someone who will not only make you look beautiful but feel beautiful and comfortable, so personality is important, and I couldn't have been happier working with her.Sent on 12/08/2016
I knew what sort of look I wanted to go for and though I had a hard time articulating it exactly, she totally nailed it! She also did my mom, sister & MOH - and captured their personalities perfectly and made them look stunning.
My makeup was flawless - I looked and felt my best on the most important day thanks to Kala! HIGHLY recommend!!
As a photographer, I have worked with many, many makeup artists and I can tell you Kala is fantastic! It is so important for a brides makeup to be not only flattering, but reflect light correctly. Kala not only did a wonderful job initially, but even spent time with touch ups between photos to insure my bride was flawless! She made my job so easy since editing was completely unnecessary. I would be honored to work with this amazing artist again. You will love her!
