Questions & Answers

How do I reserve my wedding date?

A signed contract and a non-refundable, non-transferable retainer of 25% of the beauty total from the total amount due on your wedding day are required in order to reserve your date. Be please advised without these I can not reserve your date. The retainer will be put towards your final balance.

How far in advance should I book?

I start booking up for the wedding season up to 18 months in advance, unless otherwise specified. In the event I am personally booked, I can offer to hire my associate team - The Bridal Artist Agency - for your wedding day.

Do you have a minimum?

There is a $650 monetary minimum for all Friday - Sunday wedding bookings for services only. If your wedding day services do not add up to $650, but you would still like to book, you can at the base rate.

Do you do destination weddings?

Yes! A destination wedding is anywhere outside of my Southern California base and beyond. Additional fees relating to flights, transportation, lodging, and per diems will apply for any and all destination weddings.

Do you provide on-site services?

Yes I absolutely do! All wedding day services are done on-site at your getting ready venue. Travel fees apply 15 miles outside of zip code 92101.

Do you provide services for larger bridal parties?

Yes, I am so fortunate to work alongside very talented artists I get to call my team to accommodate any sized request. My team is curated by me based on their professionalism, artistry and (most importantly) genuine nature.

Do you airbrush? And what is the difference between airbrush and traditional application?

Yes, and I really do love it. Essentially airbrush and traditional makeup is a way of application. Airbrush makeup typically using an air compressor to push foundation through the airbrush gun. Traditional makeup uses a variety of formulas from cream, to liquid to gel. In both cases, the application can be very sheer or build up to fuller coverage.

What brands of makeup and hair products do you use?

All of the makeup and hair products that I use are professional brands that were designed to give long-lasting results and photograph beautifully. I carry a range of products from different brands including Tom Ford, La Mer, Temptu Airbrush system, Charlotte Tilbury, Make Up For Ever, NARS, Laura Mercier and more.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept credit cards (4% fee), cash and/or cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash and/or Litecoin).

When is my final payment due?

The remainder of your payment is due 2 weeks prior to your event date (unless otherwise agreed upon).

Amendments to the initial contract and/or quote are available until 30 days prior to your wedding date. After that everything is locked in and you are liable for the total amount as per contract.

When should I book my bridal trial?

I personally like to book trials 3-4 months prior to the big day. So that it's not too close the wedding date, that it could feel last minute, and not too far before the wedding as hair of skin conditions could change during that time.

Because life/work balance is so important, bridal trials are only booked Mondays - Thursdays from 9:00am - 4:00pm. Fridays - Sundays are reserved for weddings (and family time).

Do I need a bridal trial? And how should I best prepare for it?

I would always recommend a bridal trial. It not only allows you to trial what you are envisioning for your bridal look, but also allows you to meet and connect with your artist.
