Jodie Horton-Stanley (right):, Photographer, MUA & creative director
I was lucky enough to grow up in the exciting performing arts industry and spent many years travelling the world. I enjoyed many roles; working as a professional dancer, choreographer, entertainer and Theatre school owner. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing my passion of make-up and photography. I absolutely love photographing weddings, everyone is so different and I get to meet some wonderful people. I particularly enjoy capturing candid, natural shots and helping people to feel at ease in front of the camera. I relish the challenge of creating artistic images and helping you to remember your special day with photographs you will treasure.
If you are having a make over/boudoir photoshoot in our studio, I will ensure you are feeling fabulous and confident in your look ready for your shoot. Our photographic make up packages also include strip lashes. If you are booking a wedding photography package I will bring my make up touch up kit (for any tear stains and lipstick smudges). I really enjoy being able to pamper the bride on her big day with this special addition that we believe is unique to Powder and Pearls Photography. I can also adapt your day make up to a more dramatic evening look if you require so you can welcome your evening guests in style. My extensive make-up range features premium make up brands such as Mac, Dior, Estee Lauder and Urban decay to name a few. I have also achieved my “Associated Beauty Therapists accredited course in Bridal and Fashion Make-up” certification and worked for many years in Theatre.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you look and feel a million dollars! Jodie x
