Katie Cotton of Cotton Rouge & Company


Katie Cotton of Cotton Rouge & Company is a local make up artist and photographer. She does fantastic work, and I couldn’t help but share. She recently did my makeup and took photos of me (see bottom left photo) to use as new head shots for my business, Sofia Invitations and Prints. If you are looking for a makeup artist for your wedding, event, or business….don’t hesitate to hire Katie.  I was so impressed with her professionalism, and I think the photos speak for themselves, she did an amazing job. Thank you Katie!

P.S. The “celebrate” sign was laser cut by our company, The Gilded Line. The calligraphy was by Linda Sung of 37th and Lettery, and photo by Lauren Curry of LC Photography.

We will talk about more local Upstate, SC vendors we love later!
