Keeping it fresh: Makeup by Daisy

At Ora Wedding, we know how important it is to look your best on your wedding day, and during your pre-wedding photos – after all, it is a once in a lifetime (at least we hope!) event. Daisy, who is not only our sales manager but Ora’s in-house makeup artist, is highly sought after for brides who want to look their best. If you have ever tried to book her, you will know from her schedule how in-demand she is. (Hint hint, Daisy is still accepting bookings for 2011. Please contact us for her availability and rates.)

One thing she frequently gets requests for by brides-to-be is a natural look. They don’t want anything too heavy, just natural and pretty for the wedding day. Something like these beautiful brides Daisy has worked on (which by the way, are not models, but actual clients!):

The look is clean, fresh, and natural, and really brings out each person’s individual beauty. Not the case of the cloned bride effect: We have heard horror stories of couples who have gone in to view their pictures, only to find that (gasp!) all brides look alike and they cannot even tell which is them – good thing they have the grooms to be able to tell everyone apart. Trust us, this is a common story we hear from our clients, who come to Ora wanting something different: “I want to look beautiful but still like me.”

At Ora, Daisy have perfected her makeup application technique over years of experience working on hundreds of faces, and she still manages to keep it fresh.

As for those brides who are looking for a natural look, I think they got what they were looking for. But here’s something that Daisy always tries to get her brides to understand: in order to achieve the natural look for photos, the work that goes into it is so much more detailed, but the results are so beautiful. So if you want the natural look yourself, don’t freak out when the application takes upwards of an hour and it feels like she is putting so much makeup on – when you see the photos, you will say “wow”, just like we do, every single time.

Pre-Wedding Season: Time to Gear Up

Filed under: Pre-Wedding — Tags: , , , — Administrator @ 11:47 pm

Someone told me it snowed today (???). Well move over weather, because we have some lovely couples to work with this coming season. Last year we proved we could do anything when we photographed Ivy and Jason in the snow for their pre-wedding session Рremember that? This year we are prepared and excited for all our 2011 and 2012 couples to experience their once in a lifetime pre-wedding session with us.

Here’s a recap of some of our favorites from 2010:


See, we have tons of fun on our shoots too, and as always, lots of love:



J and P had a fabulous pre-wedding session with us, and we can’t wait to shoot their wedding later this year:


The way he looks at her, that’s a sign of true love right there:
