I get a ton of questions about how I manage to meet and snap photos with a ton celebrities and social media influencers. So, today’s post is going to be all about how to meet celebrities and tips on how interact with them in a non-crazy fangirl way. So here’s how I meet celebrities…
- I work in digital media, on the editorial side of things. So while at my day job, I have the pleasure of meeting celebrities and assisting on all kinds of shoot with them. My favorite meet and greet experience from this was when I was able to meet Patrick Starr while I was interning for Seventeen.com.
Guys I basically died today. I had the pleasure of meeting the fabulous @patrickstarrr. As I'm looking at this photo and it still feels surreal. Patrick was so down to earth and it was so much fun chatting away. We talked about so many things and he gave me so much advice. It was everything 🙌 #fangirling
2. I go to a lot of Comic Cons. If you’re a nerd and don’t go to cons, you need to start. They may be a bit pricey but honestly, the experience is so worth it. They’re cons for everything and everyone. I tend to go to comic one and beauty ones! I recently met Wonder Woman herself and meeting her was everything to me. I loved meeting Mia and Alisha Marie at Beauty Con this year!
3. I pay really close attention to celebrities social media feeds. Influencers post a lot of exclusive content on their Instagram stories or snapchat stories and if they are planning on doing meet-ups or extra meet-ups. I am very lucky with the fact that I’ve legit walked into people on the street before like LaurDIY. When Laura and Manny announced they were doing a meet-up in NYC on their social media feeds, I was on it.
Tonight I finally met some of my favorite people @larlarlee and @mannymua733. I put together a slide show because I couldn’t choose one photo, so here are some of my favorites (there are plenty more). I was telling both of them about how I was wearing #catspajamas and they loved it. The second picture is my freaking favorite ( for the record Laura was pointing to my eye not picking my nose). Chatting with them honestly felt like I was chatting with two of my best friends ❤️ feeling extra #blessed tonight😘
4. Go to events, you never know who you could meet or be introduced too, if you see a facebook event that looks super cool, Go! If you get invited to something go.
When it comes to actually meeting them, make sure you have something in your head you want to say to them, so you remember. People often blackout when they meet celebs and just tell the person they love them but celebs/influencers are living, breathing humans. Ask them that question you always wanted to know as long as it’s not creepy, they are usually happy to answer.When I met Taylor, I didn’t have anything planned because it was a huge AF surprise but I asked her about baking and she was beyond excited. Make your speech short and sweet. You have maybe a minute to actually chat with them, tell them what they mean to you. Make eye contact as well!
