Kim & Matt’s Engagement Photo Shoot


I had began contact with Kim when she had emailed me with an enquiry regarding hair and makeup services for her wedding which was coming up in August 2010. I met with Kim and her fiancee, Matt, to become well acquainted and we hit it off right away. A calm, relaxed, young couple. I couldn’t ask for more easy going clients. Myself and Matt working in the TV & Film industry, gave us lots to talk about!

There was a long break between our coffee meet and getting Kim’s hair and makeup consultation organised. I had advised them to make the most out of the consultation by having it the same day as their engagement photo shoot, (if they had one), so they could see how the makeup photographs. This, I have discovered, is an important topic to go over with my brides.


The consultation ran smoothly and we had a lot of fun during our time together. Knowing Kim doesn’t usually do “the hair and makeup thing”, I gently advised her to have a little more than she had in mind, simply so the makeup would show up in photographs.

I kept the look natural with brown and gold tones for the eye shadow with a stronger black pencil liner concentrated close to the lash line to bolden and brighten the eye. I simply emphasised her best features. Her wedding being an evening wedding certainly means we can go a little heavier with the eye shadow on her special day. For this photo shoot however, the make works fantastically! I wouldn’t change a single thing and I feel our consultation has given Kim the confidence to boost the look up for the big day which always makes me happy!
