Emilie Inc.

Karina and Caleb trekked out to Cape Elizabeth, ME the morning after a blustery rainstorm for a cozy e-session with Emilie Inc. The light just after sunrise was perfect to capture stunning portraits as they explored the park’s beach, rocky outcroppings and surrounding woodlands. We love how the happy couple kept things casual in cozy sweaters, jackets and boots. Karina and Caleb’s love truly shines through these gorgeous images!

Hair That Moves
L&L: Tell us a little bit about you & your business.
Hair That Moves is New England’s premier bridal hair styling service that comes to you. No need to travel to the spa to receive professional hair care and styling services. Relax and enjoy in the convenience of your talented stylist coming to you. Perfect hair for your perfect wedding day.

 L&L: Describe the range of services you offer.
I offer everything from spa services, manicure and pedicures and blow outs for the bridal party before rehearsal, we sometimes even do a little grooming for men! The day of wedding I offer formal hair services and makeup services to meet your desired look.

Hair That Moves

L&L: What is one thing you would say makes your business unique in the industry?
I used to think that being an onsite wedding specialist was unique but it seems to be very popular now. I would say that my business is unique because I work very closely with planners, photographers and other vendors to make sure that the bride is done on time and that the schedule that I make to use as a time guideline for the day is reflective of that. Since I am the vendor that starts the day, if I run late, everyone runs late and I don’t want anyone to be put off by the bride being late because of me!

 L&L: What are some of your favorite venues and vendors you enjoy working with in the area?
Venues, that is hard! There are so many gorgeous ones. I would say my favorite would be Hidden Pond in Kennebunkport and The Barn at Flanagan Farm in Buxton, Maine. I love these locations because they are not hotels and they are very focused on the bride and she can be in her own space. I work with so many wonderful vendors. I am not sure I could pick my favorites, but I tend to see the same ones often!!!

 L&L: How far in advance do couples usually book you for their wedding day?
Ideally brides book me 16-12 months in advance. It never fails that there are popular dates and I get asked for the same dates and I hate not being able to help them all. After the early brides book, the trend is 6-8 months in advance. I would love it if brides booked me as soon as they booked their photographer or venue first thing!

 L&L: How do most clients find you?
Most clients find me from word of mouth from brides or vendors, photographers blogs that they have credited me in or features in magazines or blogs. I do try my hardest to keep an online presence! I love the vendors I work with and we tend to recommend each other!

Hair That Moves

 L&L: What is the most memorable wedding you’ve worked at and why?
I have very special details that stick out in my memory from most brides. The connection I make with brides that I see more than once, maybe from a referral to a friend or sister’s wedding is special. I do have to say that two of my favorites have been wedding where celebrities were involved. One Olivia Wilde was a bridesmaid and I did her hair, that was crazy. The wedding party was so sweet and fun! The other was a wedding that Justin Timberlake was there and it turned into quite a show!
