Most couples use these photos on their save the dates. Ultimately to be on display in the homes of their closest friends and family. So why wouldn’t you want to look and feel your best? These photos are the beginning of a joyous new journey, your appearance should reflect that.

Hiring a professional hair and makeup artist has so many benefits! You get to know & trust someone prior to hiring them for your wedding day. It’s a great way to figure out if you vibe with a vendor without the added stress of hoping everything turns out before you say I DO. Not to mention, it helps open the communication barrier, leaving you feeling more comfortable to voice your opinion to your artist.

What If You’re Having a Casual Session?

Even if you are having a laid back, casual engagement photo session in Downtown Des Moines, most brides are surprised to find how natural makeup can look in photos. This is ultimately a personal choice, but just doing that little extra bit can really elevate your photos!
