The Wedding Industry
My journey started in the wedding industry my senior year of high school I had my first wedding in 2015 at the plaza hotel with a beautiful bridal party of 24 ladies I remember how amazing the atmosphere was I’ll never forget how Beautiful I made those ladies feel and from that moment forward I knew that this is what I wanted to do with the rest of my life five years later I’m so thankful to say that I am in the same place weekend after weekend doing weddings!
The Wedding Memories
As a young make up artist in this industry, one of my favorite wedding memories has to be from this past summer of 2019. I had the pleasure of going upstate, to Poughkeepsie, to do one of my clients who has been following me since I worked at Mac in 2015. I remember how nervous she was for her big day! I’ll never forget the look on her face after I had finished her make up and how relaxed she was after leaving my chair. Not soon after, her brother reached out to me to thank me on how amazing I made her feel, as well as her mother and grandmother. From that moment forward I knew I was doing the right thing in my line of work, not only am I a make up artist, but I am so passionate about making women feel comfortable and taking their stress away on one of the most important days of their life!
I truly believe my specialty is executing well rounded make up, working for an industry for 5+ years I’ve learned to accommodate everyone’s desires. Looks ranging from full glam brides, who wants to wear mink lashes, or the minimalistic bride who wants her freckles to show, my purpose is to cater to your desired look for your big day!
