Colorful wedding in Los Angeles with Zoom Theory Photography

We are blessed to be a part of so many weddings each year! There are many beautiful brides and wonderful photographers although when these images crossed my desk I was so excited to share them with you. 

Ususally we talk about the details from the coordinator to the venue, in this case we have a lovely sample of images that reflect the personality and love of our couple. Simple and vibrant!

Meredith of Zoom Theory has such a unique eye, she creates beautiful images with sets and props then edits them perfectly. There is so much creativity in her work and that was captured for our bride in these photos.

Another week of  fun weddings and previews. As I have mentioned in past posts regarding previews, I believe it is the most difficult part of the bridal beauty. Choosing how you want your bridal hairstyle, wedding make-up….natural, smoky…..Most of us have the ability to carry off many different styles and looks, although this is your day and you must decide….but we can sure help.

Our motto is “if you just half way “love it” on the preview, you will love it love it on the wedding day”. Why is this? The preview you typically are wearing casual clothes. On the wedding, when you put the dress, hair jewelry, and jewelry on…..it all pulls together and is just perfect.

Design Visage is proud to help all these brides look beautiful on their weddings…..of course wedding photos to come!

If you read our blog you know how much I love it when Design Visage brides are featured in magazines or on other blogs and websites…….. 

So last week when we received the information that our bride was featured on the wedding chicks we were thrilled….let’s take a look and I will make sure we get more photos of the wedding to show you all…..

Another day of previews. So many people tell us we have the best job in the world. And in many ways I do agree. We get to help a girl/woman choose how she will wear her hair, what color best accents her lips, and what shadows will bring out the best feature we have, our eyes. How can we accent our features without looking over done, how to look classic and natural and glamorous all at the same time. Previews are the most challenging of our job, but what a privilege to be chosen for such an important occasion.

Let’s look at some of Design Visage’s fantastic brides 09. The first photo here is make-up only.

So many different bridal make-up and hair choices. We thank all our brides for choosing Design Visage and Bridalmode accessories for their bridal beauty.

One thing all these brides have in common….they all look very natural, and when they have the wedding dress on….the look will be even more subtle. That’s the plan…you but better!!!

What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.
