Bridal Skin Care

First, I'd like to welcome our new Team member, Angelica: The Visual Artist Studios Make Up Artist and Stylist.  In this installment Angelica (who is a Licensed Nurse, Interior Designer, Entrepreneur, Make Up Artist [MUA] and Stylist) put together some key points for our wonderful Brides pre-wedding skin care (that's also useful as a daily habit as well).

To our Brides, not only will you receive the Best in Fine Art Wedding Portraiture, but you'll benefit from having a MUA/Stylist available on your day to ensure you look radiant and fabulous!

Below are a few daily skin care tips for our Beautiful Brides. We want our Brides to glow from the inside out.

Drink a glass of warm water with lemon upon waking each morning. Try to stay away from coffee and sugar. Hot or iced green tea sweetened with stevia throughout the day is a great alternative to coffee or sugary drinks. Incorporate as many raw or steamed vegetables as possible to each meal. Add veggies to everything! (veggie omelets, chopped salads, or you can just juice them).

Here is a list of skincare products that I use and recommend. Some are a little pricey but worth it: 

  • Cetaphil cleanser (Target) AM/PM

The following can be found at

  • Elta MD physical sunscreen
  • Skin Ceuticals C E Feruic Acid - AM before sunscreen
  • Neocutis Bio Serum Intensive - PM after cleansing
  • Nia 24 Intensive Recovery Complex - PM after serum

Avoid any harsh scrubs or chemicals in the days leading to wedding. Retin- A is amazing but I wouldn't recommend it until after the wedding because it will cause some peeling and redness. Get as much sleep as you can and be good to yourself. Delegate as much as you can and enjoy the beautiful moments leading up to your special day.

Unforgettable Memories

The Visual Artist Studios specializes in "Timeless Images; Unforgettable Memories". In the months and sometimes years that go into planning a wedding, I want my couples to have Art that reflects the Vision they had of their Spectacular day! 


When family has returned home, the music has stopped and the one year (two or ten year) anniversary is at the doorstep of your lives; these images will be a firm reminder of that Great Day. Contact The Visual Artist Studios and schedule your Engagement and Wedding Sessions today (select CONTACT to the left and let's schedule your appointment).


There is no day [Photographically] like a Wedding! After all of the planning has been implemented, vendors have come and gone, the bills are paid... the one thing that is remaining are your Photographs


I don't want to take pictures for my clients. I want to produce hangable Art that will last generations. It is crucial to be able to invoke the feeling of a "GOOD DAY" when you see your Wedding Art. 

On wedding day (and before), I work tirelessly to capture the moments that matter and that reflect your Vision of your Wedding.

Select CONTACT and get your Wedding on the The Visual Artist Studios calendar. I can't wait to me you!

There are many [many] elements that make an excellent portrait and a great photograph. When it comes to [shooting] people an essential element for a "good" portrait is: CONNECTION.

One of the primary components of connection comes through the eyes. The eyes draw and makes the portrait engaging!  

I strive to work closely with my clients in order to maintain the Highest Level of Professionalism as well as to partner with my clients in order to produce captivating images. 

In a wedding, particularly in the Brides Chamber, you don't get the luxury of "Studio Time"; you have mere moments! In addition, you have interruptions and changing emotions. The order of the day for the Visual Artist is to stay focused,  be prepared and Connect.
