Who We Heart

  • Dana + White Henna Maternity Shoot

    May 30, 20162 comments

    Chetna is a petite, adorable little woman from South Asia who does henna art. I like hanging out with Chetna- she’s so incredibly authentic, and when we chat, she drops these little gems of truth bombs that I don’t even think she realizes are profound, and just carries on. She’s a joy to work with, and we have together on several Indian weddings in Las Vegas. When she said she wanted to do a white henna maternity shoot, I was…


  • Spring Fling Makeup + Floral + Photography Styled Shoot

    April 27, 2016No comments yet

    When Jodi of J. Anne Photography shoots you a text asking about hair and makeup for an Easter-inspired styled shoot with Layers of Lovely and a bunny… you respond as fast as your fingers will text with a resounding YES, forcing as much enthusiasm as electronic conversations can be into those three simple letters. YES, Jodi, I would LOVE to work with you, followed by an over zealous amount of emojis. Mostly the ones with the hearts for eyes but…


  • Aliante Las Vegas Wedding

    February 22, 2016No comments yet

    When we heard that Aliante wanted to style a Las Vegas wedding shoot to showcase their beautiful property and High Class Studios was going to be behind the lens, we were all in. Most of the beautiful photos you see online of brides are actually styled shoots just like these. The great thing about styling and staging a not-real wedding is that you get to play with different ideas and concepts that you might not have an opportunity to, otherwise….


  • Erin + Zeke Las Vegas Wedding

    February 15, 2016No comments yet

    When I first met Erin, I thought “yes!”. She was absolutely beautiful with perfectly shaped features, clear blue eyes and a mane of brown hair to match. She could have pulled off any look in the world, but I was pretty happy when she opted for full-on bridal glam. Because, you know those country girls love their makeup! We got to do a bridal preview a few months before the big day, and when her wedding rolled around just as…


  • Hayley Get’s Hitched! Las Vegas Weddings

    February 9, 2016No comments yet

    A year and a half after she said yes, Hayley and George got hitched! Also known as the day I drunk cried for about 10 hours. Because, it was a BIG deal. Hayley was the first stylist in the ‘Co to get married after having already been a bridal hairstylist for a long time. We do hair and makeup for Las Vegas weddings all day, every day, but it’s a whole different ball game when it’s someone who is IN…


  • Hayley Get’s Hitched! Spa-Themed Bridal Shower

    February 3, 2016No comments yet

    Ok ok, so I may be over-killing a tad bit here, but when your entire career revolves around weddings and then someone you love a whole lot gets wifed up, it’s kinda a big deal. Besides, it was the PERFECT excuse to finally do all those incredible idea’s I’ve spent the past decade saving up in my head! A spa-themed bridal shower was the perfect fit for our beauty bride-to-be! In my previous post, I talked about the incredibly wonderful…


  • The ‘Co 2016

    January 19, 20161 comment

    Nineteen days in and this year is already amazing. The ‘Co has been around long enough now to start telling stories that start with “back in the day”. It’s bizarre to think of our little merry band of hair and makeup artists like that. I think the more sophisticated phrase is something along the lines of “The days are long but the years are short.” What a true story that is. If you’ve been following the ‘Co the past year…


  • 2014: What An Epic Year

    December 30, 2014No comments yet

    You know that scene from Finding Nemo where the turtle is all like “Whoaaaaa!” and then is all like “Whoooooooa”? That’s totally been our year here at Amelia C & Co. There were some totally righteous WHOA’s and a very tearful whoa… So here we go. (I’m not entirely sure, but I think I just made a haiku…) I get all kinds of worked up at the start of the year, there’s so many possibilities and so much to look forward…


  • Same Love Styled Shoot- Gay Weddings Las Vegas

    December 6, 2014No comments yet

    We love our hottie lezzies!! Ok, we love our fabulous gay boyfriends too, but trust me when I say that every gay man I’ve ever known who wanted to wear makeup is already doing it. So as wedding hair and makeup artists, I’m pretty certain that it’s all about the lesbians for us! And we couldn’t be more excited that same love is legal and here to stay in Las Vegas! Back in October when the race to marriage equality…


  • Patriotic Pinups 2014!

    September 29, 2014No comments yet

    It’s BACK!!! Patriotic Pinups 2014 is happening November 1&2nd, just in time to be a special gift for the holidays! If you’re new to this event, allow me to give you the sassy low down. PPLV is an annual fundraiser featuring Las Vegas pinup photography for two full days of kick-up-your-pumps lovely. The fundraiser is the brainchild of our ‘Co friend, Sue Altenburg of Altenburg Studio. Sue and I go waaaayyyy back. As in, she was the first photographer to give a…


  • Zombie Halloween Makeup Las Vegas

    September 6, 201422 comments

    In tandem with our Sugar Skull shoot, we wanted some Zombies. Call me crazy, but after a decade of doing beautiful brides I really haven’t had a ton of opportunities to work on my fake blood skills. Only in recent years has this proven to be a liability on my part- apparently, everyone from CEO’s to ravers wants to look as though they are ready for their cameo on The Walking Dead. Being this close to Halloween and having an…


  • Ms. Nevada United States 2014 Brittany Williams!

    July 21, 2014No comments yet

    Three cheers for Brittany! Our dazzling friend and model has won another title- Ms. Nevada United States 2014! Brittany has been a face for the ‘Co since before it was even an official, real-deal company. We met first at a clothing catalog shoot back in 2009, and have been buzzing and weaving and crossing paths ever since. She is one of my go-to, know it’s gonna look amazing models I call on when I’m working on a collaborative project. Even…
