As a first blog post of 2016, I would like to share a couple of images from Kayti and Chris's wedding shot by amazing Danielle Barnum.

Kayti described the theme of her wedding "Mad Men meets Seattle" and I could not agree more.

Kayti's playful wedding gown was absolutely adorable, and we carried out the retro theme throughout with her hair and makeup going for pin-up updo, soft eye and stunning red lip.

Loved, loved working with this amazing couple.





So thankful to  for these behind the scenes images where I actually do not look like I am about to murder someone with a brush. Thanks Danielle. ;)

I could not have asked for a more perfect bride as Carly. Absolutely stunning (obviously), she is also incredibly sweet, smart and easy going. 

Loved working with her! Since I had trouble choosing the images by amazing Kristi Lloyd Photpgraphy to feature, there are just so many to chose from, here are a few!


Moira and Jesse

Posted by Hanna on July 3, 2015 at 3:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Moira was one of those brides, that makes you think "please book me" the minute we spoke on the phone a year ago. Originally from Colorado, this beauty has made Seattle her home where she met a handsome baseball player Jesse.


What a gorgeous couple!


I had such an unbelievable pleasure getting to know them and absolutely fell in love with their family. Moira's mom is just incredible! So lucky to be meeting such lovely people and be sharing such intimate milestones with them. Stunning images by The Nerd Birds Photography completely blew me away. 



Noelle and Kyle

I adore Noelle. Even though every single client I meet takes a special place in my heart, Noelle is extra special. :)


Very witty and absolutely drop dead goegeous, she is one of those people, who make you instantly like them. As we chatted over a glass of wine in an Italian restaurant, I could hardly wait to doll her up for her April wedding in Kiana lodge.


Needless to say, It was absolutely perfect: the ferry ride, listening to the audio book on the beach (because of course I was too early) and then sharing incredible experience of getting Noelle ready...

Adore my job.


The minute I saw the sneak peak by Laughing Willow Photography, I was stunned by the true beauty of the images and exeptional connection this couple has.

True love...

Good luck on your new adventured in Florida guys and congratulations on the most adorable addtion to your young family: little Charles Barkley is scrumtuous.

Rebekah and Sam

As I start writing my hundreds blog post, I cannot but smile thinking about Rebekah and Sam's wedding. Such a special couple. 


How many brides you know are pursuing their degree in computational linguistics and how many grooms propose by actually writing and performing a song?

Melts my heart.


Plus hearing their story about the long-distance relationship (Sam is Canadian) makes their love so much more special. 


I absolutely loved working with this couple. Sweet, down to Earth and incredibly intelligent. Love. Huge thanks to Casey Broadwater Photography for these images.

Always a pleasure to be working with you.

Sweet Sloane by Nikki Closser Photography

Posted by Hanna on January 12, 2015 at 2:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Due to this job of mine I am lucky to work with the most beautiful, most creative and dedicated people in their field. 


It's even more exciting to see my amazing clients at the start of their creative journey.

It was a pure pleasure to pamper sweet Sloane and so inspiring to hear her  excitement about starting a  modeling career.


She could not have selected a more perfect photographer for her photo-session. Nikki Closser is aboslutely incredible at what she does, and her wit, her sweet personality and ease with which she instantly makes her clients fall in love with her, is undeniable. 


I have been raised in the most loving and supportive family and having a little girl myself, I know I would encourage and help her to reach her dreams and beyond. It was so emotional to watch Sloane's incredible mom Michelle support her little girl at her huge endeavor. Their love and bond is hard not to notice.


Good luck beautiful Sloane and thank you so much MIchelle and Nikki for letting me be a part of this wonderful shoot.

Annette and Dan's Alderbrook Wedding

Posted by Hanna on January 8, 2015 at 2:25 AM Comments comments (0)

As I welcome 2015 wedding Season Brides (belive me, they are so fun, and witty and so unbelievebly gorgeous and I cannot  wait to share their beautiful weddings with you soon), I keep on catching up on blogging about all my amazing lovely brides of 2014.


This one is truly special to me.


I was truly lucky to professionally  work with Dan (who was my former manager and was a true mentor to me)  and through him I got to meet his absolutely incredible -wife Annette, who is just the most incredible person, no questions asked period. 


Then I was able to get on board  my absolutely incredible most talented, dearest  friend  and amazing wedding photographer Cheryl Ford to photograph the wedding, and super skilled Chamonix Thuston-Rattue to second shooot (what a team, I die)...


Stars were aligned and Alderbrook Resort  was a killer location for Dan and Annette's absolutely perfect wedding day: gorgeous weather, stunning couple, sweet, supportive family and friends, B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L

One of the most emotional things to me, was that Annette and Dan have actually dedicated their first dance to their parents. That alone, together with other sweet toasts of thier family had me sobbing in the lounge (yes, I am sensitive like that)....

 You can see more images of theri breathtaking wedding on Cheryl's website.

Stephanie Duchaine by Studio James Thor

Posted by Hanna on November 30, 2014 at 7:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Had a great pleasure working with actress Stephanie Duchaine during her visit to Seattle last week. 


Stephanie is currently the host of People Magazine PEOPLE OF THE WEEK, and THE HOT SPOT on HSN and she is as lovely as lovely can be. 


It does not take much to get her camera ready, she is such a natural beauty (literally, the longest lashes, I've seen), so we played-up her eyes with  taupes and browns and went for soft curls for her hair-styling. 

Cannot wait to work with her again soon.


Amazing images are by Studio James Thor.





Miri Ben-Ari at Independence Sector Conference in Seattle

Posted by Hanna on November 21, 2014 at 12:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Last week I had an unbelievable pleasure to be working with a Grammy-winning violinist Miri Ben-Ari doing her hair and makeup for her performance at Independent Sector National Conference in Seattle, WA.


In addition to being ourely mesmorizing performer who has worked with other amazing artists  (Kanye West, Jay Z, Wyclef Jean, Alicia Keys, Wynton Marsalis, Britney Spears, Maroon 5, Akon, Patti Labelle, Brandy, Donna Summer, Janet Jackson, John Legend and Armin Van Buuren, etc.), is also producer, humanitarian, UN “Goodwill Ambassador of Music”, founder and CEO of "Gedenk", a a not-for-profit organization, dedicated to educate, raise awareness and encourage self-expression among youth about anti-Semitism, racism and their brutal consequences.

In spite all these honorable awards, Miri is unbelievably sweet and absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous.

As we chatted about her styling along with the political situation in Ukraine (talk about combining business and pleasure), I was truly inspired to be introduced to such a wonderful selfless person. 

Being invited to watch Miri perform make me cry. Her music is exceptional and her impeccable performance is emotionally pristine - just like true art should be. 

Although video footage from her is performanve is unavailable yet, I simply have to share a video from one of her past performances.

Tips for Long-Lasting Makeup, Kate+Quinn

Posted by Hanna on September 22, 2014 at 5:30 PM Comments comments (0)



One of the most wonderful thigns about my job is the versatility - I get to meet so many fascinating people from so many backgrounds.

So many life stories, so many jokes and giggles exchanged in my chair...


Kate's beauty is undeniable, but what is more stunning about her is her maturity and her calm, almost tranquill manner.

I was truly honored to do her makeup and hair for this intimate photo shoot. Kate designed this shoot as a final "story" of her love to  her husband Quinn before they continue their journey on becoming Buddhist monks and every single images captured by Amber French Photogrpahy beautifully tells their story.

The photo shoot involved two hour hike into the mountains and although Kate was a bit conserned if her look was going to last 4 hours later in the August heat, and withstand the hike,  we were all pleased to see how beautifully if lasted and photographed.

TIPS FOR LONG-LASTING MAKEUP

~Prepare the skin

Clean, moisturized face primed with the primer, which corresponds to your skin type.

~Choose your foundation wisely

Smart choice of color-matched foundation, used sparingly and blended meticulously.

~Be patient

Working in layers assures your makeup looks better and lasts longer, rather than applying a lot of makeup at once...

Long lasting lip color with some lip balm for later touch ups does the trick.

The color used for Kate is Jane Iredale Lip Fixation in Fascination (Perfect PInk)


Thank you guys for letting me share a couple of images...


Nicole and Micah

Posted by Hanna on August 23, 2014 at 1:10 AM Comments comments (0)



Nicole... I am so happy I got to work with this lovely person: sweet, funny, bubbly.


We instantly hit it off, and no wonder, we have so much in common.

Both Nicole and I went to Uof O (we do not talk about it much in the Husky territory), we both are into hiking and seem to share the same aethetics for soft, romantic looks. 


As we were playing around with some hair extensions, shadows and lashes, giggling to the sound of Micah brewing beer for their intimate reception in her dad's apartment building in Belltown, I knew  I am really lucky to have met such a beautiful person.


Nicole and MIcah's wedding had a backdrop of gorgeous blue sky and was filled with laughter.

Such a beautiful couple. Of course these breathtaking images by Bethany Small Photography totally blew me away.


Breathtaking!
