who I recommend- Face Body Beauty

For my third “Who I recommend” post for Brides and Grooms I am featuring the lovely and fantastic Jennifer Walker of Face Body Beauty! Jenn is a completely amazing person and friend and totally changed my Senior sessions this year by coming on board with me and doing the hair and makeup. As you will see below, my Senior girls were all beautiful and the talents of Face Body Beauty helped hit their images completely out of the park. I am so excited to work with her again this year for my Seniors, expecting Mothers and hopefully lots of Brides! 🙂 I have also had Jenn do MY  hair and makeup for our sessions this past year and will never ever go back to not  having her, it made me feel so great in front of the camera!

I cannot recommend HER  enough, nor can I recommend enough having your hair and makeup done for any session you do! It completely adds to the experience and the outcome 🙂

Here is what Jennifer had to say about her business and about YOU as a Bride! 🙂

1. What is your business/what services do you offer?
My business is Face Body Beauty. We are a team of professional makeup and hair artists specializing in Bridal, editorial/fashion & boudoir. We can do makeup and/or hair for any type of photo shoot or event!
We definitely do a lot of weddings but we also do makeup and hair for more simple photo shoots such as family pictures, senior pictures, business head shots, maternity and new born pictures.
We also do makeup and/or hair for events such as high school reunions, family reunions, proms, dances, interviews and even anniversaries.
In addition to makeup applications we offer private or small group makeup lessons. These are a great gift for a young woman who might be new to wearing makeup or for a woman that needs to do her makeup more professionally for her new career. A lesson is an excellent idea for women at any age/stage in life.

2. Why should a bride hire a professional makeup & hair artist?
It is so important to hire a professional artist who specializes in weddings. Bridal makeup and hair is unlike other events or photo shoots. It is crucial that the bride not only looks flawless up close but also on camera.
Many women do their makeup well on a daily basis but doing makeup that photographs well and looks beautiful up close is completely different. It requires a perfect balance of colors and textures of makeup to create the perfect look.

3. How long have you had your business?
Face Body Beauty has been in business for 8 years and we have loved every minute. We are in the business of helping women feel beautiful and that is so rewarding.

4. Do you primarily only do weddings?
We do a lot of weddings but we also do a lot of photo shoot makeup/hair & lessons.

5. What is your general wedding price range/or average?
For pricing information please go to the website at www.facebodybeauty.com

6. How far in advance should a bride book with you in order to get her ideal date?
I recommend booking as soon as you have your date & venue secured. Our artists get booked fast. Usually about 8 months in advance. Spring/Summer/Fall months book very quickly.

7. How many artists are on your team?
The Face Body Beauty team has 10 lovely & talented artists. All the artists are trained by me so that our styles and techniques are the same. They are also all just lovely women who are kind and fun to be around.

8. What is your favorite part of a wedding day?
I love getting to see the bride look at herself in the mirror for the first time after we have finished her makeup and hair. It is such a wonderful feeling knowing that I have helped someone feel their most beautiful.

9. What is one piece of advice you have for the wedding-planning bride?
Overall, I always recommend 2 things to brides:
1. Hire a great photographer. Your pictures are your memories from this special day.
2. Hire a wedding coordinator but do your research & meet with them first. It is important that they are experienced and that your personalities are a good fit.
Of course, I also think hiring a professional makeup/hair artist that specializes in weddings is super important! You will have a great photographer so make sure you are flawless and camera ready for those pictures!
