31Bits : Wedding Jewelry


A few weeks ago, I had the absolute pleasure of collaborating with 31 Bits for a shoot to debut their new line of wedding jewelry. Now, not only am I a fan of its accessories, I’m an even bigger fan of who it represents. 31Bits is run by amazing people…the type of people who want to leave the world a better place than they found it. The girls at 31Bits are doing just that. They travel to Uganda to buy handmade jewelry from a small group of women, providing them with the freedom to overcome their financial suffering. Since then, this amazing organization has used profits to fund AIDS education, English lessons, vocational training and so much more in Uganda.

When they asked me to shoot a few wedding photos for their new line, I was honored. The ever fab Jen at Green Wedding Shoes is featuring the shoot today, but here are a few of my personal favs…

Many thanks to those who made the shoot possible…
Producer: Jessie Simonson, Allie Swanson, and Kallie Dovel of 31Bits
Styling: Summer Watkins
Makeup: Amy Clarke
Hair: Dianna Lopez of Lady Dianna
Location: Community Church, Newport Beach, California
Photography: Jasmine Star

    I went on a mission trip to Uganda last summer and write about the connections I made there on my blog! I am so grateful for your partnership with this company! They do amazing things for my home away from home Uganda!I am also a photographer just starting out in my own business and love reading your stories!

    Gorgeously rich photos! And of course now I’ve pinned their product smack dab on a Pinterest board – Jasmine, you aren’t helping my wallet much!! πŸ™‚ But it’s happy to help an amazing cause πŸ™‚

    Another GORGEOUS shoot Jasmine, absolutely love the styling and hair and make up here too!

    I checked out 31Bits and I just adore what the ladies are doing and the community they’re supporting. It’s not too dissimilar to an charity organisation of the company I work for who support woman in Kenya, there’s a lot of hard work that goes in to running something like this, I have a lot of admiration and respect for what 31Bits are trying to do.

    A great job all round!

    I was so excited when I heard you were photographing their new wedding line! 31 Bits is an amazing company! One of the founders grew up in my area, and I was able to host a party in my home last year to share it with all my friends! I’ve been recommending them to my friends for shoots, and they now have the perfect accessories for my brides who want a twist on classic!
