Bridal Hair and Makeup for NYC Weddings

Pre-Wedding

 

 

— Trial —

Take the stress out of your big day by prepping with a bridal hair and makeup trial. Our weddings are our most photographed days of our lives, and much like the wedding dress, it’s best to try on your bridal hair and makeup look for the first time before your big day. Through an in depth hair and makeup consultation, we’ll discover what your style is and what looks are most suitable for your unique features with consideration of your wedding day attire. We’ll test out several looks and determine together which look is the one!

— Engagement Session —

Engagement photo sessions are offered with almost every wedding photography package out there. It’s a wonderful opportunity to capture a more casual look in this special time in your life. Most of us have never been in front of a professional camera and it can feel awkward and uncomfortable. You may want to consider getting your hair and makeup professionally done to give you that boost of confidence you might need by looking your best. It’s also important to consider that on camera our faces benefit immensely from a bit of definition so as to not look “flat” (hello, my fellow Asian ladies! Thank you, extra 5 lbs on camera!) — think natural contour and a bit of definition around the eyes.

 
 

— Frequently Asked Questions —

 

WHERE AND WHEN CAN I HAVE MY TRIAL?

The hair and makeup trial, as well as the engagement shoot appointment, is held at our private studio office in Long Island City, NY. Currently, appointments are available Wednesday through Friday, select Sunday afternoons, and Saturdays during our off peak season December through February.

CAN I BOOK THE TRIAL ON THE DAY OF MY ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?

Absolutely! Feel free to coordinate your trial appointment on the same day as your engagement session. If you’d like to make any adjustments to your hair and makeup for a more casual and less formal look, we may need to schedule additional time on top of the trial appointment as an add on service.

HOW LONG DO THE APPOINTMENTS TAKE?

The trial appointment takes 3 hours for both hair and makeup. We will spend our time choosing the perfect look for you by testing out various styles and examining each one together. It’s a good idea to come prepared with one or two looks — if you need help narrowing down several ideas to one or two, we’re here to provide you with our expertise! The engagement session hair and makeup appointment takes 2 hours.

CAN I TRY DIFFERENT LOOKS?

Yes! We encourage you to try one updo and one type of down style at the trial. Keep in mind, each hair style requires different hair prep — choose one main style and an alternate style to test out. For make up, we will start out with a more natural look and work our way up to an amped up version taking photos all along the way for you to reference after the trial.

IS THE TRIAL FEE INCLUDED IN MY BRIDAL PACKAGE?

A portion of the trial fee will be credited to you after booking your group package! The credit will be reflected on the balance of your final invoice.
