I met Rachel when I did makeup for her for a portrait session the summer before her June 2015 wedding. When it came time to look for someone for her wedding hair and makeup, she contacted me right away. Since she and I had worked together before, we did a retainer to hold the date and then a trial two months before the big day.
Rachel brought great reference images with her, and she was looking for a smooth sleeker styled updo that was low and centered in the back. For her makeup she wanted a clean look with soft elegant lashes that enhanced her eyes without looking fake and a soft rose colored lip. It was just enough to look elegant and beautiful without being over done. On the wedding day, Beauty By Sue provided hair for Rachel's bridal party and mothers along with makeup for herself and the mothers. Her bridesmaids did their own makeup.
The day of her wedding, my assistant Maria and I drove out to Walker's Overlook in Walkersville, MD for the big day. It was my first time at the venue, and it was absolutely beautiful! I didn't get to see much of the grounds, but the room where we got the bridal party ready was so open and beautiful and full of light. It was really a photographer's dream room for pictures.
