Professional Makeup Artistry is often hailed as one of the premier Hair & Makeup Agencies in Northern California. A commitment to excellence has earned us a reputation of exceptional customer service. PMA is the recipient of many accolades including the coveted Grace Ormonde Platinum Vendor List, Project Wedding Bride's Choice Awards, and stellar reviews in Wedding Wire, giving us a five star vendor ranking.

Beyond excellence in Hair & Makeup design, the PMA experience is about tending to the pampered bride. Years of experience working closely with brides, their mothers, and their bridal parties has prepared us to work with you. We know how to anticipate and tackle every imaginable beauty "crisis": from developing a meticulous hair and makeup schedule, to helping you get out the door on time, to dealing with emergency dress repairs, to making sure your photo sessions look good and go off smoothly.

These are just a few of the "little things" past brides have said really made a big difference. Even the most dedicated bridal party members often do not have the time or the expertise to assist or tend to the bride. It is our pleasure to help you in any way on the most important day of your life.

Maria is exceptional! She made my day better than I could have imagined! She's worth every penny and more!

I booked with Maria and she was catering to me from the beginning. It was first hard to schedule a time with her to do a trial because I'm from out of town but she definitely worked with my schedule and met up with me during her off hours.

On the day of the wedding, she was very prompt and of course, finished me right on time! She was such a sweetheart that for my other girls, she fixed the disaster that happened with the other MUA that wasn't with her. I should have just booked with Maria's team for the BMS. That was definitely my mistake.

She definitely goes above and beyond your expectations for her. She stayed with me throughout the ceremony and helped me with not just looking good but also helping me on how to pose for my photos! I don't know what else to say except she's completely awesome, wonderful and a must have for your wedding!!!

Words can not express how grateful we are to Maria Chang for EVERYTHING!!! I just heard the reviews of how amazing she was but she completely delivered beyond on all my expectations. She made every effort to make my husband and I look beautiful in our pictures but she was also an amazing calming presence on our wedding day which is a joyous time but can also be a bit nerve racking. The best part of her services is she stays with you all day! Our wedding day was jam packed with two ceremonies (Catholic mass and Chinese tea ceremony), venue changes, several dress changes, and hair and makeup changes. Maria was with us every step of the way - from helping hang Chinese signs of good luck on our hotel door in the morning to scouting out locales for photo shoots at all our venues. She was by far our most favorite vendor to work with!

To be honest, when I told my husband how much the makeup artist I wanted was he thought it was way too expensive BUT on our wedding night we walked into our suite and all he could do was praise her work. He kept saying how helpful she was and how our wedding day wouldn't be the same without her. Though grooms don't often praise the work of make up artists he is Maria's number one fan!

We just received our professional photos from our photographer a few weeks ago and I almost cried to see how stunning we both looked. Maria helps enhance your looks without you looking too made up where you don't even recognize your own face. Maria is the BEST at what she does! She is worth every single penny! Even after the wedding, my friends and family kept asking me who our make up artist was because she was so involved in making each detail of our day amazing!

Maria and her team were absolutely amazing. They worked efficiently and were very patient and understanding with all of my bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law. Maria went above and beyond just hair/make-up - she stayed with me throughout the day - including the photo sessions, helped me with my dress, and made sure I looked my best at all times. She even did some touch ups on my husband as the day went on. All the ladies loved her and her team. They were so professional, but still fun and kept the day light and enjoyable. I would recommend Maria to anyone!

I couldn’t have been happier with PMA on my wedding day and leading up to it. Maria and the other stylist were absolutely amazing and everyone was truly in awe of their setup, their energy and of course their work. They worked extremely well with everyone and did whatever was necessary to make each person happy. They were also such an added joy to have there the day of. We all spent the afternoon talking and laughing! Maria then stayed with me throughout the photos and the ceremony doing touch ups and whatever else was necessary to make the day go by smoothly. She even helped bustle my dress! My only regret is that I didn’t have her stay with me the entire night. Working with Maria and PMA was one of the best decisions that I made for my wedding and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Maria, thank you so much for creating the wedding look that I always dreamed of for all of your extra help that day.

Amazing! Awesome! Fabulous! These are just a few of the descriptive words that come to mind when thinking about and talking about Maria Chang and the team at Professional Makeup Artistry. My daughter was married in the most magical and glorious setting in gorgeous Napa Valley last month. As an east coast family having a destination wedding across the country is so very exciting and stressful. Maria and the women of PMA took away any stress right from the start. Not only are they true professional artists in their field they were so very warm and friendly and all the while transforming all of the bridesmaids and me into picture ready perfection. But of course the real test came when my daughter the bride sat down for her session and the results were A++++++. She looked beyond magnificent and was so very happy. PMA get 5 stars plus and I would highly recommend this team for any of your makeup needs. Thank you so much PMA for everything!
