Jen: Engagement Photo Styling

On Sunday I traveled to Penn Hills to meet 2013 Bride-to-be Jen as she and her future husband got ready to enjoy the sunshine while having their engagement photos taken.

When she contacted me over email a few weeks ago Jen told me that she wanted to have her hair and makeup styled for this photo shoot but she didn’t want it to look like she had put too much effort behind it. Almost like she had done it herself. She referenced Reese Witherspoon’s general style and carefree look. So I curled all of her chin length her and then pulled all of the curl out o give it a bit of a wind-blown/disheveled feel. We then pull some strands across the top and from the front and twisted it into a cute little knot.

For her makeup I applied brown shadows that highlighted her bright blue eyes. Since we wanted to keep it simple and natural we used only a little bit of black liner that made her eyes really stand out. I think the overall look was very natural and pretty.


It was awesome meeting and hanging out with Jen for the afternoon. I am really looking forward to seeing the photos from yesterday. Even more so I am looking forward to her June 2013 wedding when we get to hang out again! Thanks for letting me be your stylist for the day!
