Bridal Trials

Want a 'preview' of your wedding day look?  We invite you to our Studio for your Bridal Hair and Makeup Trials.  We suggest booking your trial several months in advance of your wedding.

WHAT TO EXPECT

During your consultation, we'll discuss your photo ideas and overall wedding theme (dress, colors, accessories, etc.), and use them as a guide to create your wedding day look. We encourage you to browse our social media pages or the Internet for ideas (Pinterest & Instagram are great resources).

HAIR TRIAL

Come with clean, dry hair (free of any products).  Bring any hair accessories you plan to wear on the day of the wedding (veil, combs, jeweled pins, etc.).  Don't have any yet? No problem! We have sample veils you can try out and jeweled pins/combs to try out and even buy if you like them!

MAKEUP TRIAL

Come with a clean face - free of any makeup, especially around the eyes.  To get a truer sense of your wedding day look, we suggest wearing a shirt/blouse close to your dress color (usually white or ivory).  We encourage you to share a few pictures of looks that you like, to give the Artist a good place to start.


BRIDAL TRIAL POLICY

Each trial is $85.  We invite you to our Studio for a trial - by appointment only. There is plenty of free parking in the lot. Each trial may take less than, or last longer than the 1 hour time slot, but is not to exceed 90 minutes.  If we are unable to achieve the look you desire after 90 minutes, we can either schedule another trial with you, or you may opt for another Artist, if available, (re-booking fees apply for either option). 

Bridal Trials are an optional service and must be paid in advance by cash, check or credit card. The payment must be received and clear prior to the trial date.  If you cancel/re-schedule, miss your appointment, or arrive more than 15 minutes late (without 24 hours minimum notice from the start of your scheduled time), you will forfeit your trial payment/ and appointment.  If you choose to book another trial, you will be charged another trial fee - same policies apply to all re-bookings.  

We strongly encourage using your Bridal Trial ONLY for its intended use - as a preview of your wedding day look.  Should you choose to use your Bridal Trial for any other purpose (including engagement pictures), you will still be responsible for payment regardless of weather conditions, etc., should you need to cancel/reschedule without 24 hours minimum notice from your appointment time.
