Like another reviewer, I also planned to do my own makeup for my wedding day. As someone who wears very little makeup on a daily basis, I realized late in the game that I was not up to the task. I contacted Josephine on a whim and we set up an appointment for the morning of my wedding, which was ONE WEEK away! She was extremely flexible and helpful. I showed her some pictures from Pinterest, and she completely nailed the soft look I wanted. I went with airbrush, and it didn't feel like I was wearing much at all, which is great for someone who wears very little normally. Highly recommend her!

Josephine was so great to work with! She is very flexible, sweet, listens to your style and gives input only where needed. She made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day, even styling my daughter's hair at the last minute because this bride didn't plan ahead like she should have! I had the airbrushed makeup and the false eyelashes done. Loved the makeup, the light feel of it, how it didn't transfer onto my clothes or guests' clothes who I hugged at my wedding. The eyelashes looked real and gave an extra "Oomf!" to my dark eyes; I just loved them. I would use Josephine's services again and again!

Josephine was amazing! Originally i picked her out of a crowd because I found her style to be way more exciting than the cookie cutter pictures I have seen EVERYWHERE for wedding hair and make up.
Upon "shopping around" turns out her pricing was the most reasonable, a win win! I'm really happy i picked Josephine Love for my wedding day. I know all the ladies in my wedding party enjoyed her company in addition to loving their hair and make up. She was super professional, obviously talented, punctual and most importantly, really a pleasure to work with. she even trimmed my little sisters bangs last minute and helped my maids get me into my dress!

I found Josephine Love through a Google search. The moment I viewed her portfolio online I knew I had to have her for my wedding, her style was perfect for my vision. Not only is her work amazing, but she was the most affordable hair and makeup artist I found for the area I live in. Josephine responded to my email immediately and we arranged a trial well in advance to my BIG DAY. The location of the trial was conveniently located, there was no time limit and we didn't stop until I felt like we had the right look for my big day. We remained in contact through email until MY DAY. Josephine arrived EARLY and brought along a trusted co worker to assist. They both were WONDERFUL. We finished early which allowed me to squeeze in an unexpected first look with my hubby. We all looked BEAUTIFUL! Josephine is such a kind person, I loved having her apart of my wedding team.

Josephine was great- came to my hotel to do hair and makeup for me and my bridal party. We all loved our hair and the makeup looked great. I kind of figured none of it would last all day (we started getting ready at 8am and the reception ended at 11pm) but everyone's hair stayed curled and the makeup lasted all day too. Josephine was easy to work with and contact. My mom and I did a trial but she was great with working with the other girls w/o seeing them before the wedding day.

After looking at many MUAs online, when I saw Josephine's website... I knew that she was the one! Her work made models look naturally beautiful and not too overdone. And I was overjoyed when I found out that she would be available for my wedding date! I hired her immediately without actually meeting her because I didn't want to risk losing her. I was nervous before meeting her before my engagement shoot, but she made me feel relaxed instantly. Josephine listened to every question and concerned, explaining each step and offered alternatives to meet my needs. After working with her on my engagement photo shoot, I was sooooo excited to have her make me and my bridesmaids beautiful on my wedding day. Not only is Josephine a talented artist, she was a Saint on my wedding day... patiently taking her time with my hair and makeup (in between calming me down from my anxiety attacks). She showed up early, finished on time and even extended her day (working from 9am until 6pm without a break) to do impromptu hair and makeup for two of my aunts who were so impressed they hired her on the spot! I took a chance hiring an amazing artist online and I could not have asked for a more patient, flexible and completely awesome artist for my wedding. Josephine is beyond amazing... she played such a vital role in my wedding (hair stylist, makeup artist, and therapist!) that I truly consider her a friend.

I am so happy that I found Josephine for my wedding! The hair and makeup services she provided for my bridesmaids and I were excellent. She came to the inn where we were holding the wedding on the morning of, which was really convenient and made for a relaxed environment for all of us. I know I was nervous and I'm sure my bridesmaids were, too, but she put us at ease during the whole process and was so much fun to talk to. She was so professional and creative, and her skill and the quality of her products was excellent. Each of my bridesmaids ended up with a look that was flattering and reflected their personal style. I was thrilled with the result, and I would absolutely recommend her to a friend!

Josephine was recommended to me by my wedding photographer. I am so thankful for this recommendation! My first encounter with Josephine was for my engagement photo shoot. She came to my home to style my hair and do my makeup. Immediately I felt comfortable with her. She is very easy to talk to, a great listener and a master of her craft. After that photo session I knew I needed her for my wedding day. She kept a great line of communication through the entire process. She would check in with emails every so often to be sure things were still on track. We scheduled a wedding trial several weeks prior to the big day. This time I came to her home, she made me feel comfortable. After we looked at photos of my ideas together, we talked out the options and she did a fabulous job! I only booked Josephine for makeup on my wedding day. This is simply because I have a hair stylist who I have been very loyal to for several years. On the wedding day, Josephine arrived early to set up and even provided music to set the mood. She is the kind of person that when you are around her, you feel like you've known her forever. She did a beautiful job on several of my bridesmaids and I could not have been happier with my final look. What I liked a lot about this experience is that at any point I felt completely comfortable saying if I did or did not like a certain thing or if I wanted a little more or less of any particular product. Joesphine was even a lifesaver when it came to putting on my veil. I wore a birdcage veil that wound up being a little too big. Joesphine came to the rescue and proceeded to cut and sew my veil until it was perfect. She really is a jack of all trades and I wouldn't recommend anyone but her! Every woman dreams of looking a certain way on the day she should feel her most beautiful. Josephine provided me with my dream wedding look!

There was no specific reason why I chose Josephine but I am glad I did so. I am new to the area and randomly bumped into Josephone's website and found it interseting and so I just gave her a call to discuss my expectations and fears. She is an amazingly sweet person to talk to. I knew my search was over as soon as I spoke to her. We discussed for about 2 hours about the look that I was looking for and she understood it right away!

She was at the venue right on time..even before me..lol!
She was as sweet at as she sounded over the phone. She could manage so easily under pressure and kept my expectations in mind. She kept showing me and asking me if I was comfortable with what she was doing. She kept adding more or stopped right there according to my feedback. My hairdo was perfect, which was my biggest fear. The makeup was just what I wanted. She purchased a couple of things to help me out, which I am reallly grateful to Josephine for! But the bottom line is..my makeup was loved by everyone in the party as much as I loved it. everyone praised the look and I proudly gave Josephine's name to everyone. Thank you Josephine for being such a great part of my special event. I so look forward to get my makeup done by you all over again..I hope that happens real soon!!
I recommemd Josephine to everyone who reads this review. Go ahead girls..Josephine won't let you down :)

I am so, so, so happy I chose Josephine to do hair and makeup for me, my bridesmaids, and my mom. Everything turned out PERFECT, no exaggeration.

It was extremely important to me to choose a makeup artist that had a personal aesthetic that meshed well with my own but who also had a broad range of talent and product knowledge. When I found Josephine's portfolio I knew she was exactly who I was looking for.

She was personable, professional, and catered to each individual style graciously. Even under pressure when I had given her the wrong end time (cutting things an hour short!) she worked quickly but left no tress uncurled or eyelash unglued!

I have a very...intense family and she worked diligently through every interruption, laughing and talking with us the whole time. We were all extremely comfortable with her and it was just overall a very fun experience. I was so pleased with how my hair and makeup turned out and I know my mom and bridesmaids were happy as well. Of course my skin (and one of my bridesmaids, too) broke out right before the wedding but no one would ever know, it looked perfect on the day of. She even covered the keritosis polaris on my arm that I'm extremely self conscious about - I didn't worry about it all night! The airbrush makeup is definitely worth the extra money and Josephine uses great, quality products that I loved, and a lot of them if I wasn't using already, I am now!

Honestly, I think using a freelance professional makeup artist is a much more personal and valuable experience than going somewhere that turns out the same ~bridal look over an over. With Josephine you can really achieve a look that is exactly what YOU want, which is the most important part of all. Additionally, her prices are very reasonable, she comes to your location, and she is incredibly skilled; I cannot recommend her enough and look forward to working with her again!!

Of course my skin (and one of my bridesmaids, too) broke out right before the wedding but no one would ever know, it looked perfect on the day of. She even covered the keritosis polaris on my arm that I'm extremely self conscious about - I didn't worry about it all night! The airbrush makeup is definitely worth the extra money and Josephine uses great, quality products that I loved, and a lot of them if I wasn't using already, I am now!

Honestly, I think using a freelance professional makeup artist is a much more personal and valuable experience than going somewhere that turns out the same ~bridal look over an over. With Josephine you can really achieve a look that is exactly what YOU want, which is the most important part of all. Additionally, her prices are very reasonable, she comes to your location, and she is incredibly skilled; I cannot recommend her enough and look forward to working with her again!! Read less

Josephine was fantastic! I could not say enough good things about her work and how lovely and easy to work with she was. She came to the house where bridesmaids were getting ready the morning of the wedding, which was super easy. Our updos were really great - each of the three bridesmaids got a different style, which Josephine came up with based on a few ideas we each had about how we'd like to look and details about the dresses and venues. We really looked unique and great and got lots of compliments through the night. The bride got her hair done at a salon, but seemed like she wished she'd had Josephine do it. As an additional note, my updo was so secure (but not shellacked with hairspray) that I went to sleep with it up and it STILL looked great for the brunch the next morning.

Josphine was a wonderful hair and makeup artist for my wedding. She arrived at my house on time and finished with everyone's hair and make-up early. After receiving little or no guidance from me, she was able to make everyone in the wedding look absolutely beautiful. I don't typically get all dressed up or fancified, and Josephine was able to give me a natural, yet still stunning look that completely fit my personality. She made me look better than I would have imagined on my own. I was grateful. She was very laid back, easy to talk to while she was working on me, and came prepared with bonus items for me to use throughout the day. Josephine was also took the time to go over all of the "touch-up" items since I have little experience with make-up. I highly recommend her for any hair and make-up needs.

Josephine was absolutely a pleasure to work with. I knew that I wanted to do airbrush makeup since I was getting married outside in the middle of the summer, but it was very difficult to find someone in York who did it. I am so happy that I found Josephine. She did an amazing job and I could not have been happier with the final result. I was worried about whether one person would be able to do hair and makeup for 6 people, but Josephine was a total professional and we actually finished ahead of schedule.

Josephine is amazing at what she does! I received so many compliments on my hair and makeup on the day of my wedding, and it is all thanks to Josephine's talents. I would hands down hire her again for another event. Thank you for everything!

I am so pleased I found Josephine when I was looking for someone who was able to do hair and make-up for my wedding. I knew I wanted airbrush makeup, so I was trying to find someone who was equally proficient doing that, traditional make-up, and hair. On my wedding day, Josephine did make-up for me, my mother, my aunt, and my maid-of-honor, and also did hair for the maid-of-honor and flower girl. Every one of us felt amazingly beautiful, and both the traditional and airbrush makeup lasted all night - and the 2-year-old flower girl's hair lasted nearly as long! Josephine was so great to work with, and I was thrilled with the quality of her work and her ideas for hair and make-up. I would absolutely recommend Josephine Love to other brides looking for an amazing (and fun!) make-up and hair artist.

I planned to do my own hair and makeup for my wedding, but a month before the big day, I realized this was way out of my skill set. I was looking for something different, young, editorial, and Josephine's website instantly drew me in. This review may seem overly positive, but I'm a real bride.

When we spoke on the phone she told me that she had moved to Pennsylvania and rarely did DC weddings, and that her Mom would be visiting the week of my wedding. I was pretty upset because she was the only person I had found who did both makeup and hair and had the style I was looking for. She was so excited about the look I was going for, she went out of her way to adjust her schedule, and after a few weeks of trading photos and ideas, she made the 4 hour drive to do hair and makeup for me and my bridal party.

Josephine used the highest quality makeup and hair equipment. She was fun to work with and extremely patient with everyone, making sure they were happy with their looks before moving on to someone else.

I wanted high drama, and she was totally willing to go there with me. She used airbrush makeup, which also looked perfect. Everyone was blown away by the look. The hair—my sky high beehive—was a huge hit. I need to emphasize that it was 100 degrees on July 6, and my wedding was outdoors. We were patting sweat off of each other during the ceremony! But the makeup help up through sweat and tears. And the hair…well, let's just say I was too lazy to take it out so I slept in it and it STILL looked good the next morning! It was unbelievable how well the style held.

Josephine's pricing is higher than some others I looked at, and I did pay a reasonable travel fee, but Josephine was worth every penny! You can spend all your money on the beautiful venue, dress, flowers, food, but everyone will be looking at you because you are the bride and that's what people do at weddings. So do yourself a favor—book Josephine and wow them (and yourself!).

Josephine provided the perfect hair and makeup advice and service for my big day. Being one of those women who NEVER wear makeup, it was really important to me to have someone who actually knew what she was doing! Josephine was definately that person. She had great advice to fit the look of my dress and made me feel at ease with the whole process. I felt beautiful and like myself! What a great makeup artist!
