Sara’s wedding May 2014//August 8, 2014

We had so many wonderful brides this May and Sara was one of these gorgeous brides! I loved getting to know this lovely lady leading up to her wedding and was honored to spend a couple of hours with her  doing makeup on her very special day. The very talented photographer for the day was Blue Bend Photography and Sara was so sweet to share these beautiful photos with me!

Lovely words from this bride: “I absolutely loved working with Joanna on my wedding day! She was very calm and soothing, despite the chaos of the day. She did an amazing job bringing out my natural beauty, with an extra flare that I could not recreate. My pictures are absolutely stunning, and I’m so thankful for her work! Asheville brides: this is the woman to book!”

Thank you for having me be a part of your wedding day, Sara!

Johanna’s wedding May 2014//August 1, 2014

I have some catching up to do on this blog! Starting with the May wedding of this very lovely bride, Johanna. After months of planning with trial run, phone calls, texts, then facial/waxing before the  big day, we became fast friends. I loved doing makeup for this gorgeous Asheville wedding! Her Derby inspired wedding at Grand Highlands at Bearwallow Mountain was so beautiful even with the nip of Spring in the air. Thank you to Muse 10 Photography for sharing these amazing photos!

Styled Shoot April 2014//July 24, 2014

Most of my time is spent with brides working on weddings, but every so often I have the opportunity to work with a group of talented people to put together styled photo shoots. This is something I absolutely love to do, not only because its fun changing it up with makeup a bit, but also because I’ve always LOVED fashion, set design, and photography. These are a few of my favorite things..

I had a blast working with all of these amazing ladies!
