First foremost, I have to acknowledge how extremely stunning Sandy is as a person, inside and out. Not only is she an amazing makeup artist, she is an absolute pleasure to be around and work with.
Sandy did my makeup for my engagement photos and also on my wedding day. I cannot sing her praises enough. Her and her team made me and all 6 of my bridesmaids, including 2 jr. bridesmaids, look absolutely breathtaking.
I’m not one to wear a lot of makeup, so I wanted to look natural but with a little edge. She magically and beautifully pulled this off and I couldn’t have been happier.
Not only was Sandy the consummate professional, going above and beyond during the trial AND on my big day, but she sincerely made me feel like I had a partner that I could rely on. This is HUGE when there are so many moving parts on a day that can turn out to be very stressful.
Sandy and her team exceed expectations in every way and were really there for us as a wedding party. I feel confident she will be one of the best decisions you make if you decide to use her as your makeup artist for your wedding - or any other photo event for that matter. So much love and gratitude for this amazingly talented and beautiful soul!

Finding a reliable and talented makeup artist for my wedding was incredibly nerve-wrecking and I had no idea where to start. I was referred to Sandy from a friend, and I was so happy to find her! From out first phone call, she immediately put me at ease with clear pricing, and said that she would have no problem coordinating the schedule for the day of my relatively large wedding party. During my trial, she had suggestions for how to enhance my makeup for the big day, but still look like me. I loved my look, and it held up ALL day. I could not recommend her more.
