Media make-up prepares you to look your best in photography for weddings, engagement photos, Bat Mitzvahs, family portraits, publicity photos and headshots for actors, musicians, and other performers, modeling sessions, and more!

Erin's art school training in film, video, and still photography (School of Visual Arts, New York, NY), graduate studies in electronic media (Drake University School of Journalism and Mass Communication), work in live television, theatre, publishing and other media uniquely inform her understanding of how techniques of traditional and digital image capture, lighting, and make-up can artfully combine to present personality in photos that last a lifetime.

If you have a special occasion coming up, from a photo session to a big night out to the biggest day of your life, call or e-mail Erin to discuss your needs.

Natural make-up for a radiant mature bride on her wedding day.   Flattering and soft bridal party make-up for a maid or matron of honor.
What could be more romantic than a Valentine's Day wedding?  Elaine (left) walked down the aisle on this unusually warm February day in 2012, and she asked Erin to create a soft and flattering make-up for herself as well as her daughter-in-law and Matron of Honor, Kim (right).

"My mother-in-law and I got compliments all day about beautiful we looked!!  The day was perfect and thank you again for your part in making it great!!"

wedding couple in hamilton square nj -- wedding make-up by erin penney of hamilton square nj
When New York-based couple Niki and Steven got married, they chose to do it in Woody's New Jersey hometown of Hamilton. Above, Erin sneaked in behind the professional photographer to get this shot of the couple in Sayen Gardens. Erin made sure Niki's very fair skin looked natural without washing out in photos, and that the look lasted all day and into the night.
