Snapshot Love: Abey & Matt

Our jaws dropped when we saw these gorgeous photos in our inbox last week. We immediately asked our sweet bride Abey if we could share these stunners on our lil ol’ blog. So glad she was more than happy to have us post her & Matt’s dreamy engagements shot by her best friend, the fabulous Tara McMullen. We’re so excited to have Tara also capturing Abey & Matt’s big day! Now check out all of the romantic goodness below….

Pretty much exactly what you hope & dream your engagements will turn out looking like, right!? Doesn’t hurt if you’re also gorgeous like these two! Abey always looks flawless, but there’s a great story behind why she looks extra radiant. She didn’t think Tara was going to make it to her bridal shower last week being that Abey lives in LA and Tara in Canada. Tara being the awesome pal she is surprised her at the shower and then hired the glam pro- Amy Clarke to doll her up for this impromptu session. Matt was in on it of course! Just amazing. Head over to Tara’s blog to see more pics & to hear the story told much better!

Is your curiosity piqued and you’re just dying to know what’s in store for their Ace Palm Springs nuptials? Well, head on over to check out what we’ve been pinning down for them!

Friday Feature: Amy Clarke Makeup

Bursting at the seams about today’s Friday Feature!! We’re your typical girls who love make up, so it’s no wonder that we have an obsession with make up artist Amy Clarke! Amy’s been working her magic on faces for 12 years and she sure knows how to make you look your best for the big day! The proof is in the pudding (or should we say powder!?)- take a look for yourself at the wonderful work she does!

Simply gorgeous and flawless! Photos above by Hugh Forte.

Do the two above look familiar to you!? Perhaps it’s because it’s amazing husband & wife duo Candice & Geoff of Lunch Pail Pictures!

Amy also does amazing make up for engagements! Check out how stunning she made the bride above look! Photos by Logan Cole.

Yup, we stalk her Facebook & instagram for awesome before & afters like these! Kind of addicting to see the beautiful transformations. You might see some familiar faces popping up on there soon!

So glad that we got the chance to work with Amy in Palm Springs last week and can’t wait for our real bride blogger, Jessica to also get dolled up by the one & only Amy Clarke next weekend!! Do your face a favor and book Amy as your make up artist too!
