• Elle & Jay Events + The Doyle Styled Shoot

    July 25, 2016No comments yet

    In early May, we got an email from the J of Elle & Jay Events, also known properly as Jessica. There’re a couple new kids on the block and they were working over a building on the other side of the tracks, and would the ‘Co be down for a styled shoot? Does James Brown get down? Why yes, we would love to!  Dubbed The Doyle, Jessica and Lenzi (obviously the L in Elle & Jay) weren’t just ushering in their…

  • Shannon + Jesse – Nelson Ghost Town Wedding

    July 18, 2016No comments yet

    If you head south out of Vegas, and slightly to the east, you’ll likely run into the wildly under-recognized and totally rad spot that is Nelson Ghost Town. Couples who dig a little deeper into wedding venues like Shannon + Jesse did find this quite little spot, roughly 45-minutes away from the lights. The area has rustic roots with a whiz of 1950’s pop culture sprinkled in, which makes for a lovely backdrop for a variety of tastes. We’ve done…

  • Kelly + Brian – Las Vegas Wedding

    June 28, 2016No comments yet

    Kelly is this bubbly, sweet, doe-eyed bride that gave off the “I’m just happy to be here” kind of vibe. I met them early on a Thursday morning for her bridal preview, just two days before Kelly + Brian’s Las Vegas wedding. It was rather early in the morning for a bridal preview, but as luck would have it, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. See, I had just spent the past five days getting this smart and sassy…

  • Alyssa + Tyson – Las Vegas Wedding

    June 21, 2016No comments yet

    “She was a beauty, inside and out,” Daileny said when I called her to get the scoop on this beautiful bride who’s photos landed in my inbox. When I first saw Alyssa + Tysons Las Vegas wedding photos on Moxie Studio’s Facebook page, I had to pinch myself. Is this real life? Is this what we get to do for a living? Can a girl get a hallelujah? She looked perfect. Like the something on the cover of a bridal magazine. Daileny…

  • Jasmine + Micha – Paiute Resort Wedding

    June 14, 2016No comments yet

    Jasmine’s makeup trial took place in late winter, or early spring, depending on your viewpoint. But regardless if you see the last dregs of cold weather or the first peaks of warmer days, you’re likely to sniffle your way through it, as I was when I showed up on her mothers doorstep one afternoon with my makeup kit in one hand and Keelenx in the other. I can’t remember what she had going on that day, but I knew it…

  • Kristina + JJ – Las Vegas Wedding

    June 7, 2016No comments yet

    I can think of maybe three or four times in my entire career when a bride has made me cry. (The sappy, sweet kind of cry, not the reality TV kind of cry.) And I’ve done, say, ten thousand weddings. So, it’s not often that I’m sitting there crying at a wedding, I mean, for crying out loud, we are professional makeup artists. We have a grip on our emotions. Except, at Kristina + JJ’s wedding in Las Vegas. And…

    Ten Thousand Weddings. That was the number I came to recently when I realized I was on the cusp of twelves years as a wedding industry professional. We have done over ten…thousand…weddings. When your entire career is wrapped in white tulle, “I Do’s”, and covered in fondant, you learn a thing or two about weddings. Even though we generally only work in the pre-ceremony hours leading up to the big event, we still see everything that happens behind the scenes….

  • 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…

  • Kelli + Stephanie

    February 8, 20161 comment

    It was a total fluke that I got to meet Kelli and Stephanie. I can explain. Hayley was supposed to be the hairstylist for their wedding, and due to a family emergency she needed that day off. It was pretty easy to rework the schedule so she could be with her family, and I stepped in to take her place as Kelli & Stephanie’s hairstylist. It was the best possible fluke ever. When I walked into their suite at the…

    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…
