Welcome to our Blog!

Let me tell you a little more about us. Alex and I are happily married and we work together at every wedding and photo session. We have three awesome children. Joey Victoria who is 2 years old and our twins Bianca & Alex, who were born in June 3rd 2015!
I love listening to music. I'm a huge Bon Jovi fan and when Alex isn't around, I'm usually singing out loud while working on the computer. I enjoy watching martial arts & figure skating; both of which I competed in when I was younger. I was pretty good in Tae Kwon Do, so you better don't mess with me... just kidding.
I love eating cereal, salads & sushi! My world wouldn't be complete without them! Sure, I'm a little crazy. And Alex is the official dishwasher at home and he loves cars and could talk about them all day. Our TV adiction is Shark Tank. We both are fluent in Spanish as it is our first language. We have a dog named Troy who always makes funny noises when sleeping. We love our life and each other and the freedom of creating images that reflect this crazy thing we are living called love.

Weekly Tip # 9, Professional Makeup, yes or not?

Hi Dear Friends,

I hope you had a great weekend!  This week I want to talk about the importance of having a professional makeup artist for your wedding day. I know, I know, you are probably thinking: Why would I need a professional makeup artist when I love the way I do my own make up? Or why should I spend money on a professional when my best friend took a makeup class. She can do it and that will help me to save money!

Well, unless your friend has been doing makeup artistry for quite a while and has experience working with brides to enhance their beauty for their big day, I will have to disagree with you. As a professional photographer, one of my major concerns when we photograph a woman is to make sure that they have a professional apply their makeup. This is because when we take photos, the brightness of the flash can make her looked washed out and pale. A professional makeup artist has special types of makeup to apply for a photo session to avoid this. They know what products to use that will last and hold up to all the hugs and kisses on your wedding day. Having a professional makeup artist will not only help to enhance your beauty, but can aid in accentuating or down-playing parts of the face.

So, a professional makeup artist for your wedding day should not be an option, but a necessity that every bride should add to their wedding vendor list. Many makeup artists offer a trial. This is something that you can, perhaps, use for a photo session in order to see if you like their work before your wedding day.

Here is the link of a professional makeup artist, Thalio Beckham, who I highly recommend.

Thank you and have a nice week! By the way, if you like my tip, please click “like”!
