My job description
Let's face it, what I do isn't easy to understand. I spend a lot of time explaining to people what services I offer because it's not a traditional job. I am ok with that. I hope to give you a better idea.
Let me start by saying I am an artist. I always have been. According to my good friend Google, art is:
"The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
Art isn't just paint on a canvas. I love creating events. I love taking a special moment in time and celebrating it by making it beautiful. For weddings, I love really listening to my couple's love story and creating details that represent them at their wedding. I love making the events that I work fun and inviting by creating beautiful interactive vignettes like a hot chocolate station or a unique photobackdrop. I will write another blog post about my process but this is a big picture idea of what I do.
I handle the aesthetics of an event. If it has something to do with the way the event looks then I decide what to include. This would include creating an overall concept for the event and how to execute it. It also entails helping you decide what vendors to hire, what elements to incorporate, what color palette to create, what paper goods to choose and the perfect venue to have the event. I work with vendors to create the perfect details or in most cases I create those details myself or with my team just for you. This helps to create an event that is stylish, cohesive and represents the guest of honor. Of course each event is different and may need all of my help or just a little.
In addition to designing events I absolutely love to style photo shoots too. This could be to help promote your business or a product, to have special, out of the ordinary engagement photos, or provide inspiration for event design. I like to style these because I can really get creative, most of the time the shoots I style don't have as many specifications as an event might have.
If you have thought about hiring me to design or style please contact me, I would love to help create an event that best represents you.
