April Foster Hair and Makeup Hair and Makeup
April and I had the privilege of working together on a styled shoot a year and a half ago. I was so impressed with her professionalism and passion that flowed through her hands. Styled shoots (just like weddings!) begin early, and I was wowed when I learned she had been up since 4:30 am to make sure she arrived in time for the dark o’clock start time. This chick’s got talent, friends.
So without further ado, it is my pleasure to introduce you to my first Vendor Highlight: April Foster of April Foster Bridal.

About Your Business
How did you get started in your business?
A lot of sweat, tears and lipsticks. Lots of lipsticks.
How long has your business been established for?
I’ve been in business for 3 years
What’s the process like when someone books with you?
After a Bride reserves her date with 50% date retainer and signed contract, we get down with the fun! Gathering inspiration photos, from everything to hair and makeup to their florals, to their gowns! I want to see it all! We review it during our preview consultation and then co create a look that’s perfect for my Bride’s personality, face shape and hair texture.
Why Should I Pick You?
What makes you different from the rest?
My Brides are my top priority! My crafted hair and makeup packages provides brides and bridal parties a celebrity like experience. With our ‘Classic Day Experience’ which enables me to be behind the scenes of your bridal portraits ensuring every photo that your photographer clicks is absolutely picture perfect.
What are some popular trends you’ve seen this year that you think will be big next year?
Things are moving away from super organic borderline messy into more sleek and polished looks. I’m seeing a lot more simple and understated looks.
If you could give three pieces of advice for couples who are looking to hire a vendor like you, what would those be?
Best advice is once you find someone that you love their portfolio, BOOK them! We often book up to a year in advance. To avoid disappointment, lock your favorite artist in.
