Aimee Makeup Artistry - Bay Area, CA
Aimee is amazing!!! She is talented, professional and is the nicest person. I had the pleasure of having my makeup and hair done for my wedding - along with my mother and my matron of honor. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day - and I received so many compliments! My makeup looked natural, and showed up great on the pictures. My hair looked great too - and it stayed perfect all day! I didn't even have to adjust 1 bobby pin... and I have a lot of hair. During the trial, she took her time to figure out what would work best for me. I typically do not wear much make up and I was worried that it would feel heavy, so she suggested air brushing and it was great - didn't even feel like i had any makeup on!!! She took some pictures of me after the makeover and she sent them to me the next day. Aimee always responds to emails promptly and she follows up on everything. For someone who is a borderline type A personality like myself, it was just a relief to find someone who is so reliable. I also had a lot of unexpected last minute changes (adding people, requesting earlier times, etc...) which added a lot more pressure on her - but she just told me not to worry and figured everything out for me. She arrived early on the actual wedding day and she came very prepared - she took a lot of notes during my trial and brought the notes and the picture from the trial with her. On top of all this, she is an awesome person - as soon as I met her, I felt really comfortable with her. I wasn't nervous at all on the wedding day because she was so calm. Thank you so much Aimee!!!

Charles is an exceptional photographer!!! He was the photographer for our wedding - and he really did a fantastic job of capturing candid moments!!! I met him at my friend's wedding, where he was also the photographer. After I saw her pictures, I had to ask him to be our wedding photographer. I am so happy with the pictures he took - they still bring tears to my eyes and we have received many compliments on our wedding photos. He is very professional and helps you throughout the day. He is really responsive with emails, arrived early on the wedding day and was very prompt in uploading our "teaser" photos! By the time we had gotten back from our honeymoon, we had some pictures to share with our families that couldn't make it to the wedding. This meant a lot to me because both of my grandmothers, who live in Japan, could not make it to the wedding and I wanted to share our wedding day with them right away. With his experience from doing other weddings, he was really able to guide me through the day and relieved some of the stress - without being overbearing. He really took care of everything - down to the blush that fell off during the ceremony. I really didn't know what to do with it - but Charles to the rescue! He discreetly picked it up for me! Also, I don't know how he remembered, but at the end of the night, he was reminding us that there were a few pictures with our family members that we still needed to take. He kept us laughing and relaxed - some of our best pictured turned out to be the ones where we are laughing from what he said. Overall, I definitely recommend Charles as a photographer.
