Engagement Sessions and Facebook Fabulous

Well guys, ya just had to know it was gonna happen.  We have been seeing a trend towards having future brides hire MMF artists to also be a part of making them fabulous for their engagement photos.  It can be a great way to preview your wedding day hair and makeup as well.  So you get to use your preview session for fabulous photos too!  After your hair and makeup preview session we usually take down your hair anyway so the groom doesn’t see the final look.  Well, what you get is amazing  mounds of soft loose , sexy curls…perfect for an engagement session or evening out!!  Heck, why not both.  So here is a sampling of some super engagement sessions where MMF artists styled the soon to be brides.

And one of the most beautiful weddings this season.  Danielle’s family rented a  gorgeous home in Lake George for her Traver’s Day wedding.  It was just perfect for her wedding day preparation and photos. Danielle is the last of 4 daughters to get married, so her dad greeted us at the door saying ” The wedding’s canceled.”  Actually it was all in good fun, but that was what he said when he greeted everyone for his baby’s big day.  Danielle’s family is from Puerto Rico and Matt’s nationalities are Jewish and Italian.  So apparently they call Matt’s mix on Long Island, no not “Jersey Shore, ”  but… a “pizza bagel,” so cute!  Either way Danielle kept saying how handsome he was all day.  I couldn’t wait to see the pictures myself!  They are a stunning couple!!!
