Sophia did my makeup for a photo shoot for pictures for my groom before my wedding. She listened to exactly what I wanted and did a amazing job on my makeup!!! The photographer commented on my makeup the minute I walked through the door.I also booked her for my wedding, she did my makeup and three of my girls. Sophia is amazingly talented, very professional, and I would reccomend her to anyone. I was very impressed with the celebrities she has worked with, and even more impressed with the work she did. I will continue to use her in the future and wouldn't look any further. You have the found THE BEST HERE! Book her, you will be soo glad you did. Thank you so much Sophia :)

  She's Amazing!!!   

I was connected with Sophia by my MOH who has done photo shoots with her in the past. She did such an amazing job! We met first to talk about what look I wanted for my wedding, she listened and asked great clarifying questions! She came to my house for "run-through" and really took her time doing my make-up and making sure that along the way I was comfortable with what she was doing. She even answered my hundreds of questions! She was 30 minutes EARLY on my wedding day! She did my makeup as well as my bridal party. She was organized and professional, and really made sure that we all looked perfect. Do not look any further, you have found THE BEST make up artist!

  Amazing Artist   

I highly recommend Sophia for her skill, but also for her professionalism and her ability to work under pressured circumstances. It was so important to me to look great for my wedding and Sophia did a great job!

Sophia did my makeup for my engagement photos and for my wedding day. I loved the way she listened to what I wanted for both occasions and both times everything came out perfect.

For the engagement photos I had never really seen that much makeup on myself and at first I was a little worried that it didn't look like me, but once I got the photos back, I could tell that she really knew what she was doing because she made me look like I had no flaws!! 

For my wedding, she used her airbrush and when she was finished and I looked in the mirror, I was amazed at how beautiful she made me look. I asked for a very natural, light look and she totally achieved that!! And she did it in record time since I was running really late.

Sophia was amazing and I would hire her again in a heartbeat!!

I used Sophia for both my engagement pictures and my wedding day. Her work was amazing! I highly highly recommend Sophia for your wedding day your engagement pictures. ANYTHING and EVERYTHING make-up!
She was on time, professional, friendly, super helpful (for all those times we as brides, can't make a final decision), relaxed and just worked great with my whole wedding party and family. I got so many compliments on all my pictures. She also did my Grandma's, Mom's and wedding party's make-up. Everyone looked so natural and their personal beauty was really just enhanced. Her prices were also so reasonable. I loved working with Sophia.

  A Make-up Artist for Every Age

While Sophia makes her brides look gorgeous on their wedding day, she also makes the mother-of-the bride look amazing too! Once I saw her work at another wedding, I knew that she would be the perfect make-up artist for me. She made me look and feel my best for my daughter’s wedding day and the photographs prove it. I was very conscious about my aging skin but Sophia took years off my skin and eyes. She completely understood what I wanted and made sure I was completely happy before she left the hotel. She is prompt and keeps on schedule and takes her work seriously. I completely trust Sophia for her knowledge, techniques and use of very good products. She is professional, energetic, friendly and a pleasure to work with. I have much admiration for her talents.

I knew as soon as I got engaged that I would need someone to work some magic on my hair and make up for my big day. Sophia came recommended to me from friends and she was unbelievable. I left my hair and make up trial feeling like a million bucks and on my wedding day, I felt even better. Sophia not only make me look and feel beautiful, she was such a calming influence during those moments when I was starting to freak out a little! As a bride and a wedding coordinator, I have seen a lot of wedding make up, but Sophia's is the best! I would highly recommend her to any bride!

  She's an angel

she's an angel who happens to be a makeup artist. I've known Sophia since grade school but lost touch with her after we graduated from high school. I am so blessed to have reconnected with her 10 years later!! Yes, she does great makeup and hair...all the other reviews about her say how great she is at it. She actually flew up to Seattle for my wedding and did everyone's makeup, from my 13 yr old niece to my 75 yr old grandma. She also does phenomenal bouquets if you happen to be up late the night before your big day and need her help :) and she can pin a veil in your hair so that even though it's really windy it won't move an inch. But all that is NOTHING compared to how she makes you feel...and on my wedding day she knew exactly how to keep me calm and happy and excited and focused on myself. Sophia is a wonderful friend, a talented makeup artist and a truly beautiful soul!!

  AMAZING make-up artist

Sophia was WONDERFUL. I can not tell you enough good things. She came to my house to do my trial, had tons of options and ideas. On my wedding day, she was able to do me and my entire bridal party. She was fun and stuck to the time schedule we discussed beforehand. She is an AMAZING artist. You will love your make up!!

  Most talented makeup artist!!!

What can I say about Sophia! She is incredible! She made me the most beautiful bride! I had never had airbrush make up before and I was sooooo in love with it after our trial. She is amazing! She did an amazing job with my hair as well. She is such a kind woman who is so fun to work with as well and makes your special day extra fun with her great personality! I HIGHLY recommend Sophia Pickle for all your makeup and hair needs!!!!

I loved working with Sophia! She was very professional, funny, and truly loves what she does. My bridesmaids and I LOVED how our make up turned out for the wedding, and the photographs are amazing! Sophia took the time to find out what each of us like and really listened to what we said. We all have different skin types, tones and styles and she managed to bring us all together. I’ve never looked and felt so glamorous! All of our dresses were strapless and one of my bridesmaids had tan lines from a really bad sunburn. Sophia to the rescue! She used her airbrush gun and the tan lines went away. During my trial run she explained and offered different application techniques. I would highly suggest the airbrush technique. It felt really light on my skin. My ceremony & reception lasted 7 hours and so did my make up. I would highly recommend Sophia for your make up needs, she made the day fun and memorable!

AMAZING MUA!I scheduled a few trials with a few different MUAs, and Sophia was my first one. After our trial, I cancelled all the other ones and booked her, she was AMAZING! She really asked a lot of questions to see what my style was and what I was looking for. She even did half of my face one way and half more dramatic so I can see the difference. The day of the wedding went great, she even showed up early! Sophia just did a wonderful job, and everyone was very impressed with not only myself, but with my Mom, Grandmother and the bridal party. I just wish I could use her everyday, so I can always look that good :)

  Beauty Boost   

As a bride you want to look and feel your best on one of the most important days of your life and Sophia absolutely was the key to me achieving my Beauty Boost! I showed her a couple of pictures for the look that I was going for, she offered some suggestions and after the trial run I knew she was THE Make Up Artist for me! On my wedding day she travelled quite a distance to do mine and my maid of honors make up. She did a fabulous job on making me feel beautiful without making me feel like I was wearing a ton of make up, kept it very natural, fresh and vibrant. I didn't even know I could look that good ;) I am notorious for hiding from the camera and I still look at those pictures and think WOW...I look awesome ;) 
I recently received a promotion at work where I had to have an 8 x10 picture of myself posted throughout my place of business and decided I definitely needed Sophia again. She was quick to oblige and was able to fit me in so I could get my Make Up done and picture ready within a week. That picture is seen by thousands of people a month and I always get compliments on great I look ;)
Thanks Sophia for being so Awesome and making me feel Beautiful :)
Anyone who needs a true Make Up Artist with a great personality needs to book Sophia Pickle!

I've known Sophia for a long time and she was first choice to do my make-up when I got engaged. She did both my bridals and my wedding day and I loved what she did! We went for a vintage 50's look with red lips to go with my blonde hair and she rocked it. She even let me borrow her red lipstick on the wedding day so I could do touch-ups throughout the day. She was so nice to get up extra early on the morning of the wedding because we had to travel to get to our destination. I love looking back on my bridals and wedding pics and remembering how I loved my look! I highly recommend this classy lady. :)

  Picture Perfect  

The wedding process can be exhausting, selecting venue, choosing a dress, picking vendors, etc and when the BIG day is finally here, the one vendor you should have really looked for is your Make-Up Artist. Sophia Pickle made me feel absolutely beautiful on my BIG day. She was a joy to work with, not to mention she really catered to everyone in the wedding party. I researched Make-Up Artists and had trial run after trial run, and it wasn't until I found Sophia that I was whole heartedly impressed and satisfied. She is an artist true and true, and doesn't make you look fake... she brings out your true beauty. The best way to describe Sophia's skill is this: Imagine your best you, and that is what you get. Some Make-Up Artists cake on the makeup and make you look like a different version of yourself; after Sophia does your makeup, you look in the mirror and think "WOW! If only I could look like this everyday". 
Do not underestimate the value of a true Make-Up Artist, they can truly elevate the entire experience . 
5 stars for Sophia Pickle! I recommend her to everyone I know that needs to be camera ready.
