Welcome to Katie Gurley Artistry where we specialize in fine art beauty. Your wedding day is about so much more than how you look. My aim is for you to feel relaxed and radiant.
As a bridal hair & makeup stylist I am an advocate for beauty, and what is most rewarding for me is to see the transformation of a bride. My approach to makeup and hair styling is soft, radiant, and timeless - I don’t seek to change your natural beauty, I only want to accent it. I want to transform you into the timelessly beautiful bride you always dreamed of being, without sacrificing your authenticity.
Katie is a true artist with an eye for beauty. She enhances natural beauty with a light hand and skilled techniques. I have had the opportunity to work with her many times, and would choose her over and over again. Not only is her work impeccable, but she radiates kindness, professionalism and warmth. She goes above and beyond, always seeking the greatest result. In working with Katie, you not only have lovely hair and makeup, but a friend as well. - Janna Brown
I cannot speak highly enough about Katie not only as a fine art hair and makeup artist, but also as a person. It was so important for me to be surrounded by people who felt more like friends than vendors on our wedding day, and Katie was just that. She went over and above, asking about every detail and going the extra mile to make sure that I felt like my most beautiful self. She was kind, affirming and professional and I am so grateful that she got to be such an important part of our day! - Madeline
Katie was wonderful to work with! I found Katie Gurley Artistry via Instagram and fell in love with her talent and eye. She styled my hair for my wedding as well as 10 bridesmaids and two mothers. After our trial run I felt completely at ease, trusting Katie could bring my vision to life on my wedding day. She went above and beyond! I was so thankful for her advice for each girl and patience throughout the long day. Katie was kind, professional, helpful, and simply a joy to be around. I would highly recommend Katie Gurley Artistry and would absolutely work with Katie again. - Katherine H.
Katie's work and professionalism was beyond my expectations and a complete game changer for my workshop. I hired Katie for my Swan House Workshop in Atlanta and she blew us all away. She was punctual, professional and super helpful with the entire event. I cannot wait to work with Katie again. - Brandy
Katie Gurley Artistry is who you need for your wedding day. Katie really learns your vision for your wedding, all the way down to the tiny details. For example, she matched my lip color to my flowers, and she helped alter a hair piece for my hair. Katie is flexible and understanding: a few weeks before the wedding I changed my mind on hairstyle, she accepted the change with grace. She genuinely wants you to feel beautiful on your wedding day. Due to the timeline of my wedding, Katie even offered to bring in another artist that she trusted, That way I could enjoy the morning/time up to my ceremony. On top of all that, she was the one to put my veil in and secure it right before I walked down the aisle. Her attention to detail and patience makes her THE artist you need for your wedding day. - Laura
After seeing Katie Gurley’s talent for both hair and makeup on several family members and friends, I decided to hire her for the bridesmaids at my wedding. She was an excellent choice as each bridesmaid enjoyed her experience with Katie and the fabulous results. Their hair and makeup was stunning both in person and in the photographs! I was very pleased with her work for my wedding, and have since used Katie Gurley Artistry for multiple special events for both hair and makeup, and have been beyond pleased. She continues to be my “go to” when I want to look my very best.

Katie and her team did a splendid job on me and my girls! I would recommend Katie to any bride out there that wants a comprehensive and professional wedding hair and makeup experience. - Breanna H.
First and foremost, Katie's skill is unmatched! I had the wonderful opportunity to have my makeup done by her for my wedding and my hair and makeup for a styled shoot. To say it was perfect is an understatement; she listened to what I wanted and helped me feel amazing on such an important day! Skills aside, Katie is one of the sweetest and warmest people I have ever met. When the day was done it truly felt like saying goodbye to a friend. I can’t recommend her enough! - Tailyr H.
Katie has done my hair and makeup for engagement pictures, a boudoir shoot, and my wedding. Each time she handled our interactions with the upmost professionalism and made me feel so comfortable. Before starting, she consulted with me to see what visions I had in mind and was very informative on which makeup colors and hair styles would look best on me. Not only did she make the process seamless, she made me feel and look absolutely beautiful. How she finds simplicity in beauty is primo. She always went out of her way to exceed my expectations and made sure I was confident with the finished look. I will use her time and time again and would definitely recommend her services. - Ivey S.
Katie Gurley. I need to write a book. When it comes to her hair and makeup artistry, she is my new go to gal. She makes looks that are so diverse and look so effortlessly luxurious. She can see a face and a dress and know exactly what look is going to be 100% perfection. She is a true artist and the definition of hair and makeup ARTIST! - Amy Mulder Photography
