I’m very excited to share these photos from Sue+Jeff’s engagement session shot by Meg Perotti!  They are getting married tomorrow!! ;) I met Meg at her wedding day last fall, by assisting my esteemed colleague & mentor, Lisa Strutz.  Sue had called me telling me she was deciding her hair and makeup vendor, when Meg kindly mentioned my name and helped Sue make her decision!  We did a trial in the spring time, and I did her makeup & hair during the summer time for their engagement session!  During our trial session, Sue brought me…Chocolates!  And got me hooked onto more chocolates when I did her makeup & hair for the e-session! It was the first time my client brought me sweets (How did she know I had a sweet tooth?!) It was incredibly sweet (pun intended!); I was really touched and I loved it all!!! 

I loved how the photos captured their personality! I’m very excited for tomorrow~ ;) And I look forward hanging out with Sue after her big day is over! ;)

so…when I saw these on Meg’s blog, she was saying how she fell behind on blogging…I can totally relate…I am so behind on my blogging, too! ;( I need to buckle down and blog come Nov/December time and catch up??!  Ahh!  For now, enjoy these photos! ;)

Makeup Artist: Liz

Congratulations to Vivian & Richard, who tied the knot June 18th, 2011! These are from their engagement photo shoot, which happened in May – rescheduled due to the rain!  Thanks again to Junshien for the referral!

I also wanted to thank Vivian, for putting up with my runny nose on the engagement shoot makeup day! :( I had caught a cold from the traveling I did, and definitely wasn’t at 100% that day…! And…I felt super embarrassed when I was doing her makeup and my nose would be running, and I had to RUN to the bathroom, wash my hands, and then continue! :( I felt really bad…but I was relieved that everything turned out OK in the end!!!

On their day-of, I arrived in SF, at the Glam-Up salon to get Vivian ready, and usually I ask where they are getting ready instead of where they are getting married/having reception…and it turned out…Vivian knew my cousin’s bride, Jen, who happened to have their reception on the same day at the same venue, AND they knew each other because they went to the same graduate school!! What a small world!!!!!!  Vivian told me they were going to take a photo together – I can’t wait to see it – as well as the beautiful photos of Vivian & Richard’s big day in Sharon Heights!!! ^o^ For now, please enjoy the beautiful photos of their engagement session, taken by Junshien International Photographers!  I loved both of their outfits! These are some of my favs, but Junshien also made a slideshow of their photos from e-session in HD on their blog! Check it out!!!


This is my busiest summer yet…! I am not complaining and grateful to be blessed with wonderful bridal/commercial clients! The sun has been waking me up EARLY and then work work work, collapse=sleep deprivation!  Finally a day off this Sunday, I collapsed at 9:00pm last night and slept till 8:33am!  Intense deep sleep and I think I am caught up because I feel great!! :) :) :) I really need to update my portfolios/blogs/facebook, etc…!  <3  I need to charge up for my busy week ahead and 'destination wedding' in Monterey, CA! woohoo~  I am excited.  Have a great 4th everyone...! 

You might remember Jeah from here and here. She is the bride whom I was working on for her engagement photo shoot during the fire! But as the photographers from dK Weddings mentioned during the wedding, you couldn’t tell that Jeah and I were running for our lives just an hour before the shoot took place! The images posted here are a courtesy from dK Weddings! I know this wasn’t their intention, but they showcased my work on pretty Jeah very well! :) Jay and Jeah also do a lot of photography, so I bet they were very selective of their photographer – and the results came out great! Enjoy the images, and you can see a few more at theMakeup for Photoshoots gallery! :) Enjoy!
