Hello! I am the owner and lead makeup artist of Denyelle D. Beauty! I have worked in bridal and special events makeup for eight years. I am a lover of LOVE, and I absolutely adore bridal makeup! To be a part of your special day means the world to me, and I'm always elated to hear the "where did you meet" stories! No two brides are the same, so I strive to personalize your makeup experience with me. I'm always looking for ways to add the latest trends without going overboard! You can rest assured I'll create a classic look just for you!

"I absolutely love what I do. Firstly, I'm a lover of love, and I enjoy being a part of my brides special day! Nothing makes me happier than to see that glow of love spread across my brides face! Most nights before a wedding, I can't sleep because I'm SO excited for what's to come for wedding day!" -Denyelle
Whether it's bridal beauty or natural light photography, you will find me in a "zone" when I'm creating. I'm originally an art, calligraphy, and music student, so once I'm creating, there's no stopping me!
