Candice N. Mack
Candice's career in the wedding industry started almost 15 years ago in the wedding industry as a wedding photographer. Her love and passion for captioning beautiful forever memories for brides and couples while keeping her prices affordable was the #1 goal. As the photographer, Candice realized that when couple didn’t have a day of coordinator or a wedding planner the job would be left to her to manage the guest and the wedding party to ensure she got the right shot because you only get one chance to get it! There are no do-overs in weddings.
Still working a corporate job, it became a bit much and she took a step back to avoid losing her passion for the camera. Fast forward to 2017 Candice opened a travel agency, QC Travel, where she specializes in Destination and Cruise weddings quickly realized how much of a passion she has for all things weddings.
