Photographing your moments in San Francisco, California






I was in your EXACT same position only a few short years ago...

I'M cassidy, A beauty entrepreneur & your new biz mentor

and i want to teach you everything i've learned

Eight years ago I dove head first into a career as a Bridal Hair & Makeup Artist and Entrepreneur and never looked back. I have had the opportunity to travel the world working destination weddings, to grow a team of over 20 artists, to open my own storefront studio and have found myself on "30 Under 30" lists and the recipient of several prestigious business awards.

I learned everything about business the hard way and now my mission is to bring what I've learned on my own to fellow beauty entrepreneurs looking to up level their lives and take their careers to new heights.

"Cassidy, Breanne + Mia are amazing teachers and supporters. I am very excited for my career in Bridal Hairstyling, and I know that I’ll succeed with the lessons and information they have given to me!"
