Roughly once a month, I will introduce one of my favorite vendors in the industry– completely unpaid, just out of sheer love of working with them.

This month, I am proud to feature hair & makeup artist Lori Nansi of Le Mariee Makeup Artistry. Lori is incredibly talented at what she does. She is great at crafting a polished, beautiful, and timeless look. It is always an honor to work with her and the brides she transforms. Without further ado, meet Lori!

How did you get started?
I had a fascination with beauty at an early age (12). I remember taking Vogue magazine and trying to duplicate makeup styles onto myself. This passion grew into a career. I started out working for national cosmetic companies, which grew into TV/film/commercial work, and of course I have always done weddings!

What do you like to do in your free time?
Besides spending as much time as I can with my family, I love to shop. I am definitely a foodie :) I travel when I get the opportunity and my guilty pleasure is Bravo TV :) I also love a spa day! There’s nothing like a good pedi!


What’s a fun fact about you that your clients may not know? 
I save all of the wedding invites, save the dates, and thank you cards I get from my Brides. I have a Gigantic collection!

Do you have any insider tips on makeup or for brides on their wedding day?
Definitely wear faux eye lashes, strips or individuals! They really bring your bridal makeup to another level and you will appreciate what a gorgeous profile they give you in your photographs! And remember a little more makeup than usual is essential  when your wearing white/ivory. Don’t forget to carry your lip color for touch ups! It keeps your look fresh :) Also, highlight your hair, it gives dimension and texture in photographs and brightens your face :)

How much time should a bride plan for her makeup and hair? 
I typically suggest 45 min for bridal makeup and 1 hour for bridal hair (This can change depending on your desired makeup style and, as far as hair goes, the length, texture, and desired style.) Always do a Bridal trial for hair/makeup to get an exact idea prior to planning your wedding timeline.
 
What’s trending in the beauty industry for Weddings/Events now?
Low soft romantic updos, as well as incorporating braids into any style. Makeup wise seeing a lot of red/wine darker lips with nude eye shadows. I think once we hit spring/summer 2014 we will start to see these lip shades turn to red/bright pink/brighter berry shades with neutral eyes that are dressed up with shimmery shades of bronze/gold/taupe.

What trend are you tired of seeing? 
Strapless gowns!!!!!
 
What’s your favorite moment during the wedding day?
For me, it’s most definitely unveiling the final look to the Bride :) I am also a HUGE sucker for first looks. . . those always make me tear up! They also make for the most gorgeous wedding photos!!!

Timeless.Touching.True.

These three words are my approach to photography. I strive for my work to possess all three qualities.

Timeless – Your collection should stand the test of time. I want you to look back at your images five, ten, twenty years from now and still love them as much as you did the first time you saw them.

Touching – Your images should evoke emotion and take you back to the moment they were captured.

True – Your images should represent YOU! They should be true to who you were at the time they were taken.

I hold myself accountable to these three standards and always shoot with them in mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

 
Where do you typically shoot?
I like working with my clients to come up with the perfect location. The ultimate decision is made by the client – I merely serve as a reference!

When do you typically shoot?
As I prefer shooting outdoors in natural light, sessions are held either in the morning or evening. Typically 2 hours after sunrise or 2 hours before sunset.

What should I wear?
In my experience, there is not a particular color or pattern that photographs better/worse than another. So, I always tell clients to wear something that is true to who they are. If you wear sneakers more than heels, take that into consideration. You want your photos to be true to you – and outfit choice plays a critical role.

How long before I get to see my photos?
I will post a blog sneak peek within a few days of your shoot or event.

For Weddings, you can expect your gallery of images 4 weeks from your wedding date – the perfect one month anniversary present!
For Senior & Portrait sessions, you can expect your gallery of images within 2 weeks time.

What products do you offer?
I offer a variety of products for you to choose from including: Leather Flush-mount Albums, Guest Books, Canvas Wall Art, custom designed Thank You cards, Save-the-Dates, Graduation Announcements, and much more.

Where do I begin with Kara & Zac? These two are gorgeous inside and out! I loved them from the first time I met them at their engagement session earlier this year. Kara is such a sweetheart. We get along perfectly because we’re both Type-A, planners! When she told me she was doing everything herself for the wedding (including the flowers and decor), I knew it was going to be a beautiful event!

When I arrived in Sandy Spring, MD the day of, it was pouring down rain. Most brides would be bummed, especially when having a gorgeous outdoor venue like Woodlawn Manor, but not Kara! She took it in stride. Plus, rain on your wedding day is good luck, right?! I assured her we would get some wonderful photos no matter what!

The ceremony was moved inside of the tent, but no rain could dampen the celebration of such a strong love! Kara & Zac had been together for over seven years. Their love had lasted through years of long distance, and now they were finally together forever as husband and wife! I don’t think anyone had a dry eye as they read their vows. . . (myself included – and I never cry!)

The rain stopped immediately after the ceremony! We were all thrilled to be able to capture some great outdoor portraits. We used every last dry minute to our advantage! And then, it was time to party!! Kara & Zac chose to have live music at their reception and it was wonderful! There was such a great energy in the tent and everyone had a fabulous time!

Kara & Zac — Thank you so much for having me there to capture your day! It was absolutely beautiful and I hope you love the preview of your images below!

As always, it was a pleasure to work with Lori Nansi of Le Mariee Makeup Artistry. Every single one of her brides ends up looking like a work of art! It’s an honor to photograph them. See more of Lori’s work here.

Last Friday I had the pleasure of photographing Erin & Joe’s wedding! They were married at Linganore Winecellars in Mt. Airy, MD. It was a gorgeous venue and the weather was perfect! There were so many personal touches to this wedding. Erin and her family put a lot of time and effort in to making the day extra special. Wooden signs led guests to the ceremony site where they could grab a drink of water and a wedding program that doubled as a fan! At the reception, tables were decorated with glass jars and floating candles! There was also a wine list marked with the bride and groom’s favorites! All these mindful touches made for a fabulous experience for everyone who attended!

Erin & Joe – Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your wedding! I hope you love the preview of your photos!

** It was wonderful working the amazing Lori Nansi of Le Mariee’ Makeup Artistry!

I’m not sure words could describe Larissa & Taylor’s wedding. The personal sentiments, the wedding “logo”, the gorgeous couple (and wedding party), and the fun outdoor atmosphere all combined for a truly meaningful celebration! Larissa & Taylor opted to see each other prior to the ceremony, which gave us lots of time for portraits around the beautiful grounds of the Carroll County Farm Museum. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed an outdoor reception which included both Greek and Indian dancing! At the end of the night, the rain couldn’t hinder a sparkler send-off!

Larissa & Taylor – Thank you both so much for allowing me to capture your day! I am honored to have been a part of it. I hope you’re having fun in Punta Cana and that you LOVE this sneak peek of photos!
