She’s real. ¬†She’s beautiful. ¬†She understands her makeup.

Meet Alexis. ¬†She’s one of those decisive women who knows just how she likes things. ¬†She’s a makeup maven who knows her product and how she prefers to use it. ¬†(Concealer and eyeliner are her faves:)
Now, go check out her photographer, Andrew Stephen Cebulka. ¬†This was my first time working with Andrew, and I was super-impressed. ¬†Not only with his amazing shutterbug skills, but with how he works a room full of women in the throes of pre-wedding flutter. ¬†He’s calming, assuring, and in control. ¬†I’d be willing to bet he’s one of those people his friends call “a great guy.”
Thanks to you both for making this such a fun experience. . .with phenomenal results!
