We purchased the wedding package that included a make-up lesson, trial run, the bridal portrait and wedding day hair/makeup for bride and 2 attendants. It was a very expensive package, but one we were willing to pay to get peace of mind for my daughter on the biggest day of her life. I wanted that day to be a beautiful experience for her, I wanted her to be ""queen for a day"". Anita said she would personally be her ""artist."" My daughter gave Anita pictures of the hair she wanted. Anita did the hair/makeup for the trial run and bridal portrait, it was great. On the day before the wedding, we called Anita to make sure everything was still on track, Anita assured us everything was great, she would see us the next day. On the wedding day, a ""Rachel"" appears carrying a black satchel. We had hired a videographer who we did not know whose name was Rachel, so we assumed she was the videographer. ""Oh, no, she says, ""I am here for Anita. She has another wedding that she is doing today."" The next words out of her mouth were, ""Now, do you have any pictures you can show me of hairstyles?"" We were soooo upset. My daughter had given the pictures of the hairstyles she liked to Anita to be put in her ""file."" So we had nothing! Anita didn't even make any notes of the colors of the makeup she had used on my daughter, so it was all just a big guess. Rachel ended up doing fine on the hair, but the makeup was way too light, which we didn't notice at the time, so my daughter had ""white-face"" pictures. We had paid $3500 for a photographer, and had white-face b/c of the makeup artist. When I called Anita, she told me that she was sick that day. Rachel had specifically said Anita was doing another wedding on that day. Please, if you want peace of mind on your wedding day, DO NOT USE ELAN STUDIO. It wasn't Rachel's fault, she had never seen my daughter before, so it was like a trial run for her. Anita Haar took this beautiful day and turned it into a nightmare.
Cons: VERY UNRELIABLE. DIDN'T SHOW UP ON WEDDING DAY.
