Carlie and Gabriel : Day After


I have very few words that can adequately describe how much I love Carlie and Gabriel. We clicked from the beginning and have formed an amazing friendship since their wedding…so one can just imagine how excited I was to photograph their Day After session! Being ever so creative, they decided to have a theme for the photo shoot: Things You Do After You’re Married. I couldn’t have been happier with their inspiration and I’m honored to be their photographer, but—more importantly—their friend.

Carlie and Gabriel, when I’ve run out of words to say, I hope a simple Thank YOU is enough.

    These are my favorites!! I don’t think I have ever seen anyone as strikingly beautiful as Carlie – and it seems you captured the beauty of them together perfectly. Can’t say enough good things on these!!

    Jasmine again your work is beautiful but I thought that word is WAY over used on your blog so I decided to define it, which also defines your work: very pleasing and impressive to listen to, touch or especially to look at. Their idea was creative and makes me want to do a day after:)!

    Hi Jasmine!

    Do you have any tips for creating the flare in your last image. Are there certain settings you use? One more, when you shoot inside like the first images, do you use natural light? You seem to never have the harsh shadows on the faces & it is so clear, how do you do it?! Hope you are having fun in San Francisco!

    Such a great retro feel to these images – nice job.

    a simple "thank you" is more than enough. and really, it is carlie and i that owe you the "thank you’s"… you and jd have captured so many moments, that we now have forever. we have an INCREDIBLE engagement book filled with great photos and words from our friends and family. we have tons of images to choose from to develop what will become our wedding album. and you have inspired me as a photographer and a business person. so, though i feel it is not enough for the value that you have added to our life… thank you.

  13. Jasmine*

    November 19th, 2007 at 5:22 pm

    Hi Morgan! No, I don’t have a specific setting to capture flare…hmmm, now that I think of it, maybe I should! 😉 Lastly, yes, I use only available light when shooting indoors. If the light is bad, I won’t shoot inside, but this home had a window to the left of the picture and a window behind where I was shooting…and then the overhead tungsten lighting was just the thing to make the picture warm. I hope this helps! BTW, I’m back from San Fran and editing away at my engagement sessions! 🙂

    These are amazing. I especially love the one of her mixing something in a bowl, the one of her painting her nails, the first one of her on the car, and that last one.

    G&C’s "Day After" is just as beautiful as the engagement and big day photos. I love all the pictures–especially the vintage magazine and then the one where carlie is painting her toenails with Gabriel in the background.

    Fantabulous, so fun and fresh! Just was curious if you actually shot these the day after ? i’m assuming no, but I would love to know! Thanks! Do these images go into their final album?

  50. Jaime

    November 20th, 2007 at 2:25 pm

    I LOVE, LOVE, that last picture! Your use of sunflare there is a-m-a-z-i-n-g! You wouldn’t mind giving us a little tutorial on that would you???? : ) Just a thought.
    Also, I remember from your old blog you used to recommend books that you were reading. Do you have anything that you have read lately that you would like to recommend? I am going to my mother in laws for Thanskgiving, and I wanted to take a little something to read for before we eat, because heaven knows after we eat I will be sleep!! Take care….and have a blessed thanksgiving!

  56. Jasmine*

    November 20th, 2007 at 5:23 pm

    Hi Lindsey! No, these pictures weren’t taken the day after…I just like calling the shoot this as opposed to Trashing the Dress 🙂 Hi Jaime! I’d totally recommend reading History of Love by Nicole Krauss. I LOVED it! I’ll probably do another book review soon since there are so many I’ve gone trhough lately. Thanks for the kind words, y’all! 🙂
