Vendor Feature - Genica Lee Hair and MUA

It’s about dang time we feature one of the baddest in the game: the one and only Genica Lee! There is just so much to say about this precious little love and not enough time or space on our little corner of the internet. Beyond Genica’s IMMENSE talent for hair AND makeup, and her timeliness, and professionalism she brings on a bride’s wedding day, there lies one of the kindest, most radiant, supportive, and simply wonderful humans we’ve ever met.

Alicia and Genica go way back when to the very first time Alicia first dipped her toes into the editorial side of the wedding world. She was one of the few wedding vendors who actually gave us a shot and not only shared her talents, but poured her heart out by styling hair for our first ever editorial wedding shoot.

Genica not only provides our brides with a 5 star service serving the most gorgeous, glam wedding looks we’ve ever seen but she also does it with the sweetest, brightest, and most joyful disposition. She is a light that shines oh so bright and here at Alicia Lucia Photography we are so grateful to work alongside someone like G who gives her all to our brides and does it always with the biggest, sweetest smile! Who wouldn’t want someone like that on their wedding day? Check out more of her gorgeous work below and be sure to give her a follow: @genicalee_hmua on Instagram

Vendor Feature - Hair + Makeup Artists

Wedding days are filled with millions of pretty details, but we personally think our brides always steal the spotlight and it’s thanks to a little help from the incredible, local hair stylists and makeup artists that make these beauties absolutely glow! From full service to single service, these incredible boss babes (and guys too) work extremely hard to make sure brides look like nothing short of goddess from the second they walk down the aisle to the final dance. We adore these vendors and are soooo grateful to have pros that make our jobs on wedding days that much more fun, glamorous, and downright incredible! We love y’all so much!!

Wedding Inspo: Bridesmaid Gifts

Summer may be winding down, but wedding season is really starting to heat up for the girl squad at Alicia Lucia Photography. We wanted to give future brides a little inspiration in gifting for their bride tribes. Inspired by Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique's amazing monogrammed bags, we rounded up a few of our all time favorite gifts to thank your gals with for standing by your side on the biggest day of your life. Classic matching robes and jewelry are near and dear to our hearts, but some of our brides have gotten creative with floral rompers, unique t-shirts, and personalized drink glasses! Some brides will even pay for hair and makeup for their girls, a gesture that bridesmaids love! If you're ballin' on a budget, you can always opt for extra bubbly and sweet thank you card, no gift is too small! For even more inspiration, check out bridesmaidgiftboutique.com
