One of the best parts about being wedding photographers is that we get to meet so many other local artists and wedding professionals at events we photograph and networking meetings we attend. Over the last several years, we've made lots of new vendor friends in the Triangle area, and we want to start introducing some of them to you in hopes that you get to work with them too. So without further ado, we're THRILLED to introduce the first edition of our Vendor Spotlight series!
Meet Patricia Love, an incredibly talented Raleigh-Durham makeup artist, hair stylist, and the owner of Perfection by Patricia. If you've spent any time reading wedding blogposts from our area or perusing wedding-related posts on social media, chances are you've seen her amazing work. Get to know her by reading her interview below, and definitely reach out to her if you need a stylist for your event!
Tell us about your business.
We are an on-location one stop shop for our beauty needs providing professional makeup and hair design, spray tanning, and brow waxing. We cater to weddings, proms, special events, high school senior sessions, publications, media, and photo shoots.
How did you get started in this business?
I've been in the cosmetics industry for over 15 years. I created Perfection by Patricia in 2006 with the intentions of running a side business for fun. Since then it has grown beyond my wildest dreams! My company's work has been used in filming for TV productions and commercials, personal grooming for high-profile celebrity clients, and published many times in national magazines. I'm versatile in both makeup and hair styling.
What makes your business different from others?
We like to pride ourselves on reliability and quality. Prompt response, genuine love for what we do, and a high attention to detail.
How do you stay inspired?
I love to view the work of the many talents we have right here in the Triangle! It's amazing how much is here, and I feel so lucky to be surrounded by it all.
What do you love most about what you do?
My passion to help clients goes beyond making them look better; I want them to also FEEL better. I really just love helping people.
What is the biggest struggle you experience with your business?
I've sat here and thought about this question for a while... Honestly right now things are SO good! I can't think of a single struggle. I feel so blessed. I'm not saying I've never had a struggle or will not in the future, but for now it's fantastic!
If you could give couples one piece of advice for their wedding day, what would it be?
Enjoy every little piece! It goes by so quickly. And remember to eat!
What do you like to do when you're not working?
I decided to ask my daughter this question and I think she's spot on... She said: "Stay home and be with me and have fun!"
What would we be surprised to learn about you?
I'm a super busy woman and sometimes I, myself, do not know how I juggle it all, but I do! I'm a mommy and wife and also run a second side business! I'm a partner with the creators of ProActiv in their new company Rodan + Fields. I get to work with the one of the largest and fastest growing premium skin care companies in the U.S. This business is doing amazing as well, and I'm so fortunate. I'm changing skin and changing lives.
