Lauren and Jonathon are just the most adorable couple. When I met Lauren for the first time, she literally leaped into my arms and gave me the biggest hug filled with excitement. She is such a joy! I also met Jonathon on the same day. They drove down from Sacramento to get a “few things” done before their big day.
Lauren and Jonathon started their unique friendship 9 years ago in college. Then one star lite evening at her house in South Carolina with tears in his eyes, Jonathon led her down a rose petaled path with tiki torches aflame on either side to an arch he had built that overlooked the water, he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife. The head-over heels in love couple had their engagement shoot at Quail Hill in Irvine on a gorgeous sunny day in April 2012.
For Lauren’s makeup, I created a soft smokey eye and concentrated on giving her dark eyelashes. I buffed in Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation into her skin and use soft peaches and pink tones for her lips and cheeks. For her hair, I created soft loose waves.
Lauren wrote me the most awesome review, what a gem she is! Thank you sweetheart for your kind words and for being such a pleasure to work with!
With tons of love and blessings,
