MEET THE TEAM
I’ve been a part of the beauty industry for 14 years, and an independent artist for 8 years. In that time I’ve serviced hundreds of brides and several celebrity clients, including Eva Longoria and Jamie Lynn Sigler, and my work has been featured in publications such as Style Me Pretty, Magnolia Rouge, and Martha Stewart Weddings.
I’m a wanderer at heart: I grew up in the Idaho outdoors, and after leaving my small town I felt the urge to travel as much as I possibly could. When I travel I love to stroll the streets of new places, taking photos of unique facades, roaming the aisles of antique stores, and sampling all of the local vegan cuisine I can find. That drive to seek out new places and cultures is present in my love of learning new beauty techniques and traditions, too; I don’t like to rest on my laurels. I find inspiration in everything from literature to interior design and, especially, old Hollywood glamour.
When I’m not traveling I do slow down (a little bit): you’ll usually find me curled up at home with my partner Alex, binge watching our latest obsession with a bottle of red wine and our rescue cats.
"Caitlyn knows how to exactly highlight your features and make you feel beautiful, while still feeling like yourself."
Caitlyn was absolutely amazing for my wedding day hair and make up! She masterfully curled my hair with the ability to put it up later in the day, despite the heat and humidity of late June. She also has the most beautiful vision for make up. She knows how to exactly highlight your features and make you feel beautiful, while still feeling like yourself. Caitlyn created a neutral, glowy palette for my day and I could not be more grateful. She is so sweet, professional, and made me feel so comfortable and confident in my skin. Caitlyn also did my mom and younger sister's make up (who both were very skeptical to get their make up professionally done considering they wear very minimal to no make up everyday) but Caitlyn did an amazing job making them feel minimal, yet enhanced. Caitlyn brought a team of other artists for my wedding day, for 12 of us to have hair and make up done, and they were all so talented, fun, and professional. All my bridesmaids had a great time getting ready together with the help of her amazing team. They both absolutely loved the outcome. Caitlyn also did my hair and make up for my boudoir shoot, which made me feel like an absolute bombshell for my photos! She is able to see the vision exactly as I describe it and create the perfect look to enhance all of your beauty. For any bride on her wedding day, I would recommend Caitlyn every time to look and feel your absolute best!!
"Every bride needs Caitlyn for their big day because you will not only be taken care of professionally, but you'll feel a comfort with her that every bride needs on their wedding day."
Like most women, this part of my wedding was extremely important to me. I had a strong beauty vision that I was going for, and when I was looking around for an artist in the beginning of my wedding planning, I was getting a little worried that I would not find an artist that could execute my certain style.....until I found Caitlyn. I had an out of state wedding so my trust level was increased due to not knowing anyone in the industry already, but the moment I saw Caitlyn's work, I knew she was it. Caitlyn's talent is so incredible and diverse. She doesn't just do the basic steps for each client, she truly customizes a look for your features and your personal vision. One of many things that makes Caitlyn stand out above the rest is that she does both hair and makeup, and she does them exceptionally well. Every bride needs Caitlyn for their big day because you will not only be taken care of professionally, but you'll feel a comfort with her that every bride needs on their wedding day. She has the most precious and warm heart. When I think back on my wedding day, she is someone that I miss working with so much. She not only made me feel like a priority, but also like a friend. She is the best in the business, hands down. I will forever be grateful to her and how she made me feel, not only by her extreme talent, but also by her presence on the biggest day of my life so far. My wedding would not have been the same without her - I truly mean that.
"In the end I felt like an enhanced version of myself - which is exactly what I was looking for on my wedding day."
My experience working with Caitlyn was flawless. She was easy to communicate with, flexible, reliable, friendly, hilarious, cool, fun, and, most importantly, ridiculously talented. We decided not to do a trial for my wedding hair and makeup for a few reasons and she was totally calm and confident about giving me exactly what I wanted the day of. She helped me voice what it was I liked about the inspiration photos I showed her to create a look that worked for me. I didn't have my heart set on a particular look so it was fun to give her my ideas and let her work her magic. In the end I felt like an enhanced version of myself - which is exactly what I was looking for on my wedding day. Caitlyn also did my sister's make up and a friend's hair and makeup and they looked absolutely gorgeous. She accommodated our schedule and put together an organized timeline to make sure we were ready to go on time. She dealt with a constant stream of visitors and worked well with our photographer. I should also mention that, especially during a potentially overwhelming/stressful time, she is a lovely person to be around. I will be looking for any excuse to hire Caitlyn again in the future!
"I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day- and I owe that all to Caitlyn."
Caitlyn without a doubt was one of the best parts of my wedding day. Hair and makeup vendors are working individually with the bride and bridal party, and you want to be surrounded by great people. That is exactly Caitlyn. She is not only excellent at her craft, but she is a joy to be around. She was calming, friendly, funny, and more than accommodating to anybody's needs on how they wanted to look that day. I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day- and I owe that all to Caitlyn. I have recommended her to all of my engaged family and friends- she truly is the best! Thank you for everything, Caitlyn!
"You leave her chair feeling like a straight up celeb which is everything on your wedding day."
Caitlyn is hands down the best makeup artist I've ever worked with. I first got the chance to have my makeup done by her at my best friend's wedding over a year ago. Each and every bridesmaid left that wedding in awe of how amazing of a job she did, so she was literally the first vendor I reached out too once I got engaged 9 months ago! Her skill and ability to make each girl look stunning while still looking like 'themselves' is such a gift. You leave her chair feeling like a straight up celeb which is everything on your wedding day. As if her talent and skill wasn't enough, she's so sweet and fun to hang out with! She fit right in with my bridal party so well I was honestly sad when she had to leave. The bright side moving forward is that she's doing the makeup for another friend's wedding in a few months so I get to see her and have her do my makeup again - all this to say, she's phenomenal. You will NOT regret hiring her!
