Hiring Pamela Butler and her assistant Louisa to do make-up for my wedding was the best decision l could have ever made. Having worked in the PR industry in Nashville for several years, I had the privilege of being around many top celebrity make-up artists in the biz, yet few... Read More compare to Pamela. Her professionalism, ability to match a photo of a make-up look you like precisely, and knowledge of what techniques complement a person's individual features the most make her stand out from other make-up artists in the Louisville area with whom I did trial runs previously. By the time we were ready for the wedding, my girls and I felt like A-list celebrities (and looked like them, too!) :) I would highly recommend Pamela to anyone looking to have a stunning, red carpet look on their wedding day.

What a wonderful start to my wedding.

I don't even know where to start with this review! I was planning my Louisville wedding from afar, and planning every detail myself (no wedding planner!). Pam came recommended to me by my photographer, who had worked with her previously. Pam was always quick to respond to my... Read More phone calls and emails and was extremely laid back and easy to work with. Pam allowed me to have my trial the day of my engagement pictures, which was perfect because I got a feel for how her style matched with what I envisioned - plus I looked flawless for my pictures! I know some other artists in the area won't allow you to have your trial for engagement pictures and make you pay extra - so this was just another reason why Pam was so great! On the big day - Pam brought another member from The Beauty Patrol with her, since there were 10 of us total that needed our makeup done. Pam and Michaela made us all feel so beautiful! Plus, they were so FUN to work with! I wish I lived in Louisville, so I could hang out with them! haha ... We were all laughing while we got ready. Every single one of my bridesmaids felt so gorgeous and couldn't have been happier with their makeup. The ages of the girls ranged from my 15 year old sister, to my friends in their 20's, to my mom and MIL, in their 50's. Each of them looked so beautiful and the style matched each of their age/personality so well! I could go on and on! Hire Pam and The Beauty Patrol Team! You will be so happy and feel relaxed and beautiful on your big day!
