Amy is absolutely amazing. She has so much compassion for makeup and is awesome at what she does. Her kindness and humbleness kept me calm on my wedding day and I trusted her 110% to make everyone beautiful and she exceeded my expectations of makeup beyond what I ever could have imagined. She was so easy to work with and was the least stressful part of planning my big day. Everyone was beautiful and my girls still talk about how amazing Amy was. She made such an impression, two of my bridesmaids contacted her about doing their wedding. Thank you Amy for being so kind, humbled, beautiful, and easy to work with. You made my day a lot less stressful. You are amazing.

Amy did an awesome job on my wedding makeup! She can make you look amazing!!! I loved how she used colors that complimented me. She used just the right amount of makeup, too. I got so many compliments at the wedding on how beautiful I looked. Amy was also very flexible with my wedding party and even added someone to the list at the last minute. My wedding party looked amazing! Although my wedding day makeup was a little expensive, I believe it was worth it. Thank you so much Amy! You are great!!

Amy is, without a doubt, the best makeup artist I've ever worked with. She was able to do my makeup, my entire bridal party of 8, and the 3 mothers. All of us looked simply stunning when she was done with us. Everyone commented how much they loved their makeup, and how sweet Amy was. A few members of the group who do not usually wear makeup were concerned that it might feel heavy or caked on. However, everyone was pleasantly surprised that the makeup Amy used was light and comfortable. Amy was super easy to work with and was a calming presence on the day of the wedding. There is a reason she is booked so far in advance: she is the best in town! I would definitely recommend Amy to everyone!

Amy is a true professional. I've never looked so gorgeous in all my life. She is very knowledgeable about all the products she is using. She's a doll and so easy to talk to, she definitely kept me calm on my wedding day. I loved her, she's a wonderful artist!

From my initial emails with Amy to the make-up trial and finally the wedding day make-up for myself and my mother and bridesmaids, Amy was excellent! She is very professional, so kind, and above all else - really good at what she does! I had Amy do my make-up for the rehearsal dinner and wedding and got so many compliments both nights on how great my make-up looked. My bridesmaids and mom also felt very included by Amy and loved their look. I can't wait to find an excuse to get my make-up done again!

Amy is the sweetest and most pleasant professional to be around. Through the chaos of my wedding day and having 12 bridesmaids, Amy did an amazing job of making everyone look beautiful. I am make-up artist myself and through much research, Amy was the one I chose because her talent was apparent and her flawless work speaks for itself. There was an array of age and skin tone in my bridal party. Amy knocked it out of the park with each and every girl. I would highly recommend Amy Kennison for bridal make-up.

Amy is extremely talented at what she does. She is also efficient and professional. I was so happy with my makeup and truly felt beautiful on the day of my wedding. Amy was awesome and also did the makeup for 6 bridesmaids, 3 mothers, and grandmother (and we didn't have to start getting ready at the crack of dawn!). The photos turned out beautifully and no one had to worry about their makeup despite the September heat. I would HIGHLY recommend Amy to any bride or anyone who wants to look their best for any event- she is the best!

There are no words to describe how much I adore Amy. I have only met her a few times but she is such a kind, caring, and talented person. I have recommended her over and over again to everyone I know! She went way out of her way to make me, all my bridesmaids, both mothers, and my grandmother feel beautiful. She even traveled TO my grandmother who is in a wheel chair after working tirelessly to make all the rest of us look amazing.
Now, every time I do my own makeup for work in the mornings or a date night with the hubby I think, "What would Amy do" and the best part is that she is just a phone call or email away for quick tips on beauty products or processes. She is just simply a great makeup artist and an even better person. I guarantee that you will not be dissatisfied with your "Amy transformation"! You cannot go wrong with Amy! Also- listen to her recommendations for Hair and others- This gal knows it all!!!!
