Testimonial Time

I had the pleasure of travelling out to Wetaskiwin this past Saturday to make up this lovely bride, Melissa, for her big day! She has written an incredibly kind and sweet testimonial on my Facebook page and I wanted to toot my own horn and share it here! Thank you Melissa!

“A photographer can take beautiful pictures but a bride needs a entourage to get ready for those perfect moments. I had the great pleasure of having Gillian there for me on my big day. I have nothing but great things to say about her work! Not being the youngest bride around she took all my flaws (that I feel I have) into consideration while working on my makeup. Not one bag under my eyes all day haha!
While Being professional she also was very kind to all the ladies I had with me that day. She showed up in a timely manner ready to get started knowing how a timeline needs to be met.
Corresponding over email she was very prompt in answering any questions I had.
She went over and above any expectations I had for her service and I thank you so much for making me feel more beautiful than I ever have!”
