The bride and I had met at a wedding a few months earlier. The comfort and trust were already there but she was still nervous! That's when I like to take a more hands on approach with my makeup. Using your hands can be such a comfort for a bride and can really make them feel pampered.  

The bride and her maid of honor both requested smoky eyes, but variations of. The bride has a beautiful soft smokiness happening, while the maid of honor went for a more dramatic navy blue smoky look with winged liner to work with her dress.

The brides mum wasn't afraid of makeup either! She just said "keep putting it on" and so we did. Most mothers of brides or grooms shy away from too much makeup; they aren't used to it so why bother? But this is a perfect example of having a great look to enhance your photos.

Addition of false lashes is such an amazing way to make your eyes pop. You get this beautiful richness to the eyes without a lot of heaviness. There are so many natural looking lashes on the market nowadays. I just fell in love with kiss lashes. They have a great variety of styles and they all flex to match the curvature of the eye.
