Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… enjoying time with my husband and our two children, Paisley and James. We love exploring new places in southern California, or spending warm sunny days at one of our favourite beaches. 

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… getting to travel to New Orleans, Louisiana for a Photography Retreat hosted by Marissa Morrison with Mon Soleil Weddings. My husband was able to take time off and join me on my trip, which was actually our first trip together with just the two of us. We were able to explore New Orleans, expand our pallets with a lot of new foods, and experience life in New Orleans. It was such an incredible experience! 

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… Greece, France, and Italy.

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… getting to meet and connect with so many incredible people, getting to travel and experience new places and cultures, getting to do what sets my soul on fire! 

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE… I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. 

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE… If you have a specific vision for your wedding day and are unsure on how to bring that vision to life, hire the planner! You will be so glad you did. 

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… It is full of beautiful cultures, serene landscapes, and endless opportunities.

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE…  either somewhere in the mountains or Greece. 

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? I actually don’t have a favourite! I love them all. But my favourite TV shows are Outlander and Bridgeton! 

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… Turtle Soup in New Orleans, it was scrumptious! 

THE PETS I OWN ARE… our 6 year old German Shepherd/Rottweiler Mix named Abram. We often refer to him as our “grandpa” dog because he was born an old soul and has such a big heart. Of course, our spunky rescue cat, Izzy! She is very sassy and has extra toes on each paw!
