Where in Vancouver can we find your profession?
What is the best part about what you do? What is the worst part?
The best part of what I do is that I get to meet so many wonderful women who are starting a new chapter of their lives. Our brides book sometimes 2 years in advance so it is nice to see them flourish. I get to be a part of their big day and it is a happy event all around. We have great and intimate conversations.
The worst part is when your client doesn’t trust you and questions your artistry.
What is your favourite joke about your own profession?
