Upstyle Hair + Makeup artists | 2017 Recap

It's officially the end of one of our best wedding seasons and we're ready to put the party pants on and ring in this beautiful new year! January is the start of our 'slow' time and for us this means reflecting, setting intentions for the year, and prepping for our 2018 brides (but also traveling, relaxing and netflix because WINTER, am I right?).

Some of our favorite things from this past season - non traditional touches, wild bouquets, undone hair, romantic makeup with copper tones, all the greenery, cool airbnb getting ready locations + amazing brides who become friends.

A big thank you to all of our clients, vendors + the lovely group of girls that stand behind Upstyle - you guys rock and we are so excited for next year + the new adventures that lie ahead.

Julie + Jake | South Farms Wedding | Upstyle Hair + Makeup

What do you get when you combine a dreamy cottage, the BEST coffee (seriously if you’re ever in the area you have to go to Arethusa), and the sweetest bride? The most perfect morning to kick off the most perfect wedding.  We knew from the moment we met Julie that our spirits were one in the same. Working with her and her lovely sisters was frankly, the best + thanks to Instagram we get our daily dose of her travels (and foster kittens!) 

Julie and Jake’s wedding was one for the books. The day began at a quaint little Airbnb cottage right in Julie’s hometown of Bantam, CT. They kept it clean and classic while incorporating fun pops of color in their beautiful floral arrangements. We loved the idea of the couple spending the morning at the same location, hidden away from one another until their first look. It heightened the fun and anticipation. Plus, we’re all about breaking tradition!

They tied knot at one of our favorite venues, South Farms in Morris CT. (Check out this shoot we collaborated on a couple years ago) If you’re looking for a classy rustic vibe, don’t overlook this beautiful barn!

Cozy + Intimate Winter Shoot - Emily Kirk Photography - Upstyle Hair and Makeup

Nothing screams “young love” louder than a cozy, intimate engagement shoot complete with couch-cuddling. Think about it. What better environment for a couple to be themselves than in their very own digs?  In-home engagement shoots make for some of the most authentic sentiments to be caught on film and the results are matchless. Nothing is sweeter or more personal than capturing who you are in the walls of your own home. We especially love the idea of having the flexibility to shoot in the dead of winter. Choosing a in-home photo shoot means the cold is no match for winter engagements! Hot chocolate anyone?

    For this shoot we got to collaborate with some of our now 'friendors' to create the images below. Our female model, Aoife of Jack & Grace Events is rocking soft, loose waves for a look that is both effortless and gorgeous. Her makeup reflects the same vibe, furthermore accentuating just how darling and cozy this shoot was.

 While for our purposes we rented a sleek and modern Airbnb in Upstate New York to achieve this project, it goes without saying that an in-home engagement shoot is always a good idea.
