I was so glad that I booked Essie for my wedding make-up. She was a pleasure to work with -- really easy going, experienced/knowledgable, and reassuring -- and all of the girls loved the way that they looked, even those of us who were really nervous about wearing what we considered to be a lot of makeup. She made everyone look natural and gorgeous! She even squeezed in two people on the day of the wedding, who decided after seeing how beautiful a job she did on the other girls, that they wanted their makeup done too. And she kept people out of my face, literally, when I was in the chair for those last few quiet moments before pictures began! Flawless execution and stunning work.Sent on 10/20/2018

I had such a great experience with Essie. She is super friendly, listens to what you want, and is very organized. We had 7 of us getting our makeup done on the morning of the wedding, and it was super low stress, exactly how I wanted it. We all loved our makeup and had a great time in the process!Sent on 01/08/2019

Being a professional photographer that works with both brides and models, I know the importance of having an exceptional makeup artist - it can make or break your day. Rest assured if you have Essie, you will look beautiful; She's amazing at what she does and I would recommend her to anyone.
Essie has a beautiful makeup style with great attention to detail!
Essie is my first referral when I am asked to do an event on a day that I'm already booked. Her product knowledge and experience is what I admire most about her. She makes each face she touches something to remember and is professional, personable, and a great person to have around on your special day!
