I'm a follower of Christ, wife, wedding photographer, daughter, sister, aunt, cat mom and I have a slight obsession with Joanna Gaines. 

Together, my husband, business partner + favorite hand to hold, Trevor, and I make Kayce Stork Photography + Films.

I enjoy writing here on our online journal and sharing the knowledge that I've learned over the years in the wedding industry with not only my couples, but anyone who want an extra hand to hold during this amazing, yet busy season of life!

In my career, I've photographed everything from newborns to a past United States President, but my passion and focus has been for the wedding industry for over the past 5 years. I truly love this calling and feel blessed each day!

Grab a sweet tea, or your drink of choice, and take a look around!

Makeup Tips for your Professional Photos

I am SO thrilled to have my sweet friend Jackie Merlau as a guest blogger today! Read below for four amazing tips from this amazing artist!

www.JMerlauMakeup.com

Tip #1 – BRING IT UP A NOTCH:

Did you know that Professional Photography can remove up to 20% of color and intensity in your images? Even if you aren’t a makeup person and don’t wear it on a daily basis, be sure to add just a bit more than usual. Some key features to focus on would be lashes, blush, and lips.

Nude colors will work against you and make you look washed out, so be sure to choose natural flush tones that are soft and organic. Try applying soft false lashes or brush a black mascara onto your lashes. Focusing on your lashes will really make your eyes stand out and pop.

Tip #2 – LONGEVITY:

Depending on the climate, weather and your location you will want to ensure your makeup will wear throughout your photo shoot. It is best to apply a moisturizer and primer prior to your makeup application, to assist in longevity. Just be sure to stray away from anything with an SPF or it will cause flashback in your images.

Also, be sure to complete your look with a setting powder and a setting spray for even longer lasting wear!

Tip #3 – FEATURES:

Makeup is meant to enhance your natural features, so be sure to focus on what you love most about yourself. If you have blue eyes, consider using bronze and peachy tones to help them pop. If you have freckles, find a sheer foundation that lets them show through. Try not to work against your natural beauty! You want to be sure you look like yourself many years from now while reflecting on these moments and memories.

Also, steer clear of sparkles and shimmers. A soft glow and dewy look are fine, but too much shine can be distracting.

Tip #4 – HIRE A PROFESSIONAL:

If you are still unsure of how to do your makeup properly, consider hiring a Professional Makeup Artist. It is a service that allows you the luxury of relaxation while letting someone else handle the beauty details for you.

Rest assured, you will stay on schedule, look flawless and have a long-lasting look for well into the evening.

If you already have a Professional Makeup Artist hired for your Wedding Day, then Engagement and Bridal Portraits are an excellent time for a consultation. This is a great way to see how the Makeup wears and photographs and gives you time to talk with your Makeup Artist before the big day!
