A Glowy Summer Wedding Look

This past weekend, I played makeup artist and photographer at my girl Jennelle’s wedding. I’m still sifting through all the photos, but I wanted to share a few of the gorgeous Jennelle herself. She is a true natural beauty (my mom always says she looks like a modern day Venus) so my job as “makeup artist” was easy. I mean, come on, look at that face:


For those who are curious, we used her tinted moisturizer and a pressed powder along her T-zone to set everything, and then I applied a thick coat of black mascara, a raspberry lip stain to her lips and cheeks, and my favorite luminizer on her cheekbones, eyelids, and a tiny bit down the center of her nose. That’s it!


Then it was party time. I ate all of those oysters. Just kidding. But really, I had more than is socially acceptable. I had to be sneaky about it.


Meanwhile, Jennelle looked radiant chatting to her guests. I followed her around and sneakily took lots of photos. That’s when I realized…



Wedding photographers must feel like creepers the majority of the time.


Or you just get used to it? Either way, I took a break and and snapped some flower pics for awhile. : )

Congratulations, Jennelle and Ruben! Xo

  1. Ahhh I’m always too intimidated to use luminizer – I’m afraid I’ll end up too sparkly. Jennelle looks great, though! I’ll have to give it another shot.

  2. Thank you so much for these beautiful photos and what you wrote Joy! And mostly for your presence. No one noticed you creeping by the way ;-). I can’t wait to see the rest of your photos!! Such wonderful memories.
