Featured Artist & Stylist: KELLY

We can’t say enough amazing things about this beautiful lady. She is so full of love, positivity, drive and incredible talent. Kelly has been apart of the Avenue Beauty team for well over 6 years and we have loved every moment it. Her training started back in her native Chicago where she worked with Stewart Talent Modelling Agency in the commercial print department. From there, her talents took her doing photoshoots, weddings and reality tv. As a cast member of the Bachelor in 2003, she was able to continue her practice on her cast mates as well as for her post appearances including The View, Oprah and Ellen.

Once meeting her amazing husband (not from the bachelor), life took them over to Europe for a bit of time and she was able to continue her artistry on fashion shoots, public relation tours, red carpet events and personal styling. Her excitement for doing makeup, hair & fashion stems from using her beauty skills on a client’s outer beauty, which in turn makes that individuals inner beauty soar from within.

Kelly loves working in the Calgary market around her family and skincare business. As a mother of 2 gorgeous girls, she is an incredible example to not only them but so many others. We are continually inspired by her balance of her personal life & work life, seeing her continually grow in so many ways and seeing her create so many beautiful looks!

If you have had the delight in working with Kelly, you can certainly agree that her love of the craft, infectious smile & laugh, and amazing talent shines through at every booking. We are beyond lucky to have Kelly on our team and can’t wait for you to experience her incredible talent.

Love Story: Kassandra + Justin

We were so honored to be apart of this beautiful, unique & intimate elopement that was featured recently on Confetti Wedding Magazine Blog. The couple’s ceremony was a beautiful escape back to where they first met, surrounded by the stunning Rocky Mountains. Kassandra’s style was very soft & romantic, so we tucked her hair into a textured, low bun & adorned it with a gorgeous gold hair piece from Joanna Bisley Designs, To compliment her soft, feminine dress, we kept her makeup light & polished with shades of pink & champagne.

Once the couple said “I DO’, they headed back into the city to celebrate with their friends & family at a quaint reception in their downtown home. We dialed up the glam factor for Kassandra’s look by taking her hair down for some vintage inspired waves and by popping on a bold lip & adding in some depth to create a soft smokey eye.

The team that made this day come together was absolutely incredible and they truly continue to inspire us. Huge thank you to each and everyone of them, and also to the beautiful couple who allowed us to be a part of their special day. We hope you enjoy a peek at the wonderful moments captured!
