A Beverly Hills Affair

One of my all time favorite clients! This gorgeous girl is a bundle of sweet energy and her and her now husband are incredible people! Team Mags Cathey had the pleasure of doing hair and makeup for her, her bridesmaids and all the moms and grandmas! It was quite a...

Very Early Mornings

Here's to early morning weddings that start at 6 am. For me, those mean lots of coffee, not doing my hair, and very minimal makeup on my part. But not on their part! I got started with the bridesmaids and moms then did the bride last. This couple was beyond gorgeous...

Makeup Artist & Maid of Honor

This wedding was special. It was different than any other previous job or client. The bride was one of my best friends and I was the Maid of Honor (technically Matron, but lets face it, who wants to be called that). I met Brenna our sophomore year at Azusa Pacific...

Hashtag Cake Wedding

Is that not the greatest last name ever! #WeddingCake! This was an amazing wedding for me because the bride happened to be one of my very good friends! I could not have been more honored to be apart of the big day and be there for my dear friend. These two crazy kids...

Another lovely wedding at the 1909

I love doing weddings where I am friends with the bride! Kristen has actually done a few weddings with me as my hairstylist! She is wonderful and I have known her for a long time so it was a super pleasure to be apart of her big day! We did most of the bridesmaids and...

Back at the 1909

This beautiful bride's sister was one of my previous photography client and she called me immediately when her poor sister had a disaster of a bridal trial. Rey contacted me right away after Serena had her trial with her first artists she was booking with. After 5...

A Green Wedding

This has got to be one of my all time favorite brides. Mainly because she was the sweetest most caring person ever. From the first time she called me, she was so adorable and happy and wanted to know everything about me. I love love love when my brides and I become...

My Step Brother’s Wedding

This was a super special wedding for me because the groom just happens to be my brother! These 2 crazy kids have been dating a loooooong time and have been engaged for years. In fact, when Troy became my step brother in 2010 and for the 2 years that our parents were...

Boone Wedding

My first conversations with Lara were quite interesting and to be honest, they worried me a bit about the type of bride she was going to be. She was initially concerned with the price for makeup artists and had been quoted by several other artists. She shared with me...

Riddell Wedding

My all time favorite person to do weddings with, brought me along with her to do the makeup for this lovely wedding! Julie did all the hair for the bridesmaids and bride as well as the makeup for the bride and I did the makeup for 4 bridesmaids. The wedding was in...

60’s Style

Austin and I got together and did an awesome shoot together, that he thought up. 60's/70's themed. Think Mad Men and American Hustle. We had two incredible models for the day, Lauren and Aaron. (I also did a couple shots, but they are a little controversial since I...

Gutierrez Wedding

In March, while I was 7 months pregnant, I might add, I traveled down to Temecula for this lovely wedding. Jessica was such an incredible client and so fun to work with. It was such a privilege to be apart of her special day and to be the one beautifying her. We got a...

Key Wedding

I always love to do weddings where the bride thinks she's going to be a stress case and then she does way better than she thought. Meet Kara. She was such a beautiful and fun spirited client and from the moment I met her, I knew we would get along great! This was the...

Cram Wedding

This beautiful wedding was my second of the day on November 24th. It was such a crazy day. After doing my cousin's wedding early in the morning, I traveled to Topanga Canyon for Ashley and Derek's big day. I started on Ashley's makeup at 9 am.   Keep in mind that I...

High School Senior Portraits Done Differently

This was a super fun opportunity to do a great senior portrait shoot with an amazingly fun gal. I was of course working with the fabulous Stephanie Simpson of Simpson Portraits. When Steph originally told me about this shoot, I was really excited because it sounded...

Vintage Bridal

So Austin and I have too much fun together and we like to do fun shoots whenever possible. This was a great one with a beautiful couple (you may recognize her from many of my other posts, what can I say! She's my best friend) Austin scouted a great location in...

the Many faces of Mary

When I do glamour portrait photography with Stephanie Simpson, we have a blast in the studio. Pretty much we play around for 3 hours with an awesome lady. For this particular shoot, her name was Mary, and she was a high school junior. We had a lot of fun ideas to play...
