I really dragged my feet when it came to scheduling my wedding makeup. I was so petrified that I would end up looking like a clown on my wedding day that one of my girlfriends just booked me with Flawless Faces. It was truly of the best decisions of the entire wedding planning! Carina scheduled me with Cara, who came out to the DoubleTree Hotel in Orange where my wedding was held. She was simply amazing with applying my makeup and I can't express how pleased I was when she was done. I really didn't know what kind of look I was looking for since I hardly ever wear makeup, but she asked me some key questions and came up with a look that was just fabulous yet very comfortable. She was also very fun to work with and added to the many pleasures of my wedding day. She gave me tips on how to keep up the look through the evening and was so patient with the million phone calls I had to field while she was trying to work. I cannot recommend Flawless Faces enough!

Austin is one amazing wedding photographer! Planning a wedding while being in grad school was so fun but at times extremely stress-provoking - working with Austin was definitely part of the fun! I was really, really nitpicky when it came down to finding someone to take my wedding photos. I searched for a long time and interviewed multiple photographers before finding and choosing Austin. He was an absolute pleasure to work with from the start and I am definitely looking forward to using his services again for other photo projects. He is really great in making me feel like my wedding was just as important to him as it was to me and always goes the extra mile to provide that personal attention. For example, he not only helped me to research locations for my preceremony photos, but also took the time to travel and check out some spots with me. He even made the necessary phone calls to arrange for permits and such. Austin was always really patient with any questions and concerns I had. The day of the wedding, he was so great with me, my husband, and our wedding party. We had a complete blast doing our own photo shoot before the ceremony. He also worked really well with my videographer. After the wedding, Austin kept constant contact with me to keep me posted on the progress of the photos in terms of the editing, online proofs, and delivery of my negatives. He gave us a "teaser" view of our photos on his blog as he was working on them and I was in literal tears when I finally saw how wonderful they were. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my photos!! I wanted a candid, photojournalistic feel to my pictures but also needed some more traditional shots with family and such. Austin was very cool with understanding and being accommodating to those needs. He has a super fun, engaging yet professional personality that makes you so excited about the whole process. It was so nice to get off the phone with him and always have a smile on my face knowing that I could trust such an important part of the biggest day of our lives in his capable hands. Thanks so much, Austin!
