Silverado Engagement : Bianca + Matt


She sat on our couch in a funk. My sister didn’t have to explain what was wrong, as the conversation from dinner lingered in the air. Over dinner I explained my past clients worked for eHarmony, and it sounded like something she should try…because, really, she wasn’t going to meet a guy doing what she was doing. Bianca was the type of person who’s constantly on a mission to save the world. Literally. She volunteered with youth at church, planned trips to Mexico to distribute toys at orphanages, and organized food drives. All in her spare time. And let’s be real, Bianca wasn’t going to meet a guy at the local canned food drive.

I gave her my credit card and she–reluctantly–created a profile. Over the next few weeks her calls were filled with, THIS IS SO RIDICULOUS…WHY DO YOU HATE ME…DON’T MAKE ME DO THIS! And with an attitude like that, she didn’t go on a single date. That is, however, until she was matched with Matt. Now, here’s a crazy thing: Matt was busy trying to save the world, too! He was doing all the same things Bianca was doing at his church.

So. Matt invites Bianca to coffee. She accepts. Then Bianca cancels last minute (she cites he might be a crazed murderer posing as a cute church boy). Matt is dumfounded. Then he sends her an email along the lines of: Listen, I don’t want to marry you…it’s just coffee. Bianca feels foolish. They plan to meet–again–for coffee.

Their coffee date was five hours long. And upon first meeting, they both realized they met the perfect person to help save the world. Together.

I couldn’t believe I was lucky enough to find a random boat in someone’s front yard! I was too nervous to ask if we could shoot in front of it…so I made Matt go and do it! 😉

Bianca, if you weren’t my twin sister, I’d say you looked beautiful. But since we look alike, that would be totally weird. So, instead, I’ll say you have GREAT HAIR!

Since we were kids, I could always make my sister laugh. My parents don’t get it. They don’t think I’m funny, but Bianca thinks I’m kinda hilarious.

The picture on the left is a true, true picture of how Matt treats Bianca…he’s always holding her up, so she can be the best version of herself…

Again…I’m funny.


Hey, Matt, I vote this be your new Facebook picture! 😉

Look at the textured walls…be still my heart….

Okay, and I’ll end with a rawr shot…

    Awe, I teared up looking at these, but then again I tear up looking at most of your work,lol. I feel like I know you both and I’m so happy for Bianca, and Matt does look like he holds her up and it looks like Bianca captivates Matt. I wish them all the best and God bless them both as they begin their new lives together. Jasmine, you rocked this session, and I know your sister thinks the same thing too.

    June 24th, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    Miss. Jasmine,

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and this is my first time commenting. I’m not sure what took so long but I supposed a part is due to my admiring of your work.

    I’m very glad you did this for your other you 😉

    These are amazing and your work is inspiring me.

    Props on coming across a large boat. I too, loved the textured walls.

    Lots of a love,

    for being nervous you still knocked it out of the park! And just because you two look alike doesn’t mean you can’t say she’s beautiful! 🙂 It’s true- you both are!

  40. Lori Calhoun

    June 24th, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Jaz, (I can still call you that, right?) Your such a rock star. seriously!

  41. Cat Watson

    June 24th, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    It is INSANE how much you two look alike. I was looking at these first on Facebook and was wondering why you were posing with this guy that wasn’t JD and who was taking these pictures? Then I remembered you are a twin:)

  42. Diane -

    June 24th, 2010 at 6:53 pm

    What a beautiful job you did for them! You can see how comfortable they were with you! Love them….nice work!

  43. Amanda Key

    June 24th, 2010 at 6:54 pm

    The pictures are perfect! You (as always) did an amazing job! Kinda weird seeing someone that looks like you–with a different guy and not JD 🙂

  44. Rachel Edge

    June 24th, 2010 at 6:55 pm

  46. Gris

    June 24th, 2010 at 6:58 pm

    Jasmine: Amazing, awesome, so lucky that you were able to do this for your sister. Bianca: Beautiful, so happy to see you so in love!

    June 24th, 2010 at 6:58 pm

  59. Katie

    June 24th, 2010 at 7:09 pm

    These are incredible! I must say, it’s kind of strange to see pictures that look like you… but aren’t you. Both women are stunning!

  71. Jason

    June 24th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    Great pictures!!! Love the textured walls shot toward the end. If that didn’t capture B’s sassy attitude (at least, the one those of us on her blog read) then I don’t know what would!

  72. Laurie Bracewell

    June 24th, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    Saving my life. Beating me up. Having my back. Forcing me to do things I don’t want to do. Sometimes the words I LOVE YOU just aren’t enough. But they are the only words I have to tell you how much you mean to me. I LOVE YOU.

  77. Kayla Cook

    June 24th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Congrats to your sister. You know it’s funny the first time I saw her I couldn’t tell you apart. But how scary is this… I actually see a very small difference to tell you apart. How cool is that?

    You both are still very beautiful! Good job with the pictures.

  84. Romonia

    June 24th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    I knew you would have me in awe!! These are gorgeous and great captures. I love how you can make her laugh because you two have the same infectious smile! 🙂 That is a good thing too! Bianca and Matt are a beautiful couple and it shows. You captured them, their love and their fierceness! Love those yellow heels! Best wishes to Bianca & Matt. I wish you guys a wonderful future filled with love, prosperity, good health and so much more!

    there are about a billion things I love about this post. Aside from your always stellar photos of course –
    1) Eharmony! I love it!
    2) That you admitted you were nervous to ask permission to shoot. I’m quite sure you’re a fearless super woman so it was refreshing to know you’re thrown off sometimes too!
    Thank you for sharing!!

  99. Cindy A.

  106. LEOLAK

    June 24th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    Ok…I clicked on the link to Heather and Gian’s wedding post…and how ironic is it that you posted that 2 years ago – TODAY!!! And the eHarmony connection coming full circle for all…that’s pretty cool – interesting on the timing of posts too!

  107. Brent Deitrich

    June 24th, 2010 at 8:45 pm

I am so happy for them and can’t wait to see their wedding pictures. Jasmine, did you use the 50 1.2 for this entire session?

    congrats to them! and beautiful pics, too- love the boat!!! I’ve actually done that before, too- some one had the perfect tree in their yard for pictures, so we asked if we could use their yard for a bit- they were thrilled to let us use it!!

    June 24th, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    Of course I had to look at the photos before reading the text and was shocked to see "you" with another man! As always, the beauty and the awesome energy that you’ve captured in these images are inspirational. Bianca must be so happy with them! Thank you so much for sharing.

    June 24th, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    Absolutely Gorgeous!!!! What a beautiful couple. You must be so happy!!!! I can’t wait to see the wedding shots. And it’s nice to know that you get nervous over the little stuff :). I totally would have never asked and sent someone else to ask if I could shoot in their front yard LOL!!! This is the second time today that I am saying this, I too met my husband thru internet dating only we met on I didn’t want to do it either and he was the only guy I went on a date with and it lasted 11 hours!!! We got married this past October.

    June 25th, 2010 at 12:05 am

    "Bianca, if you weren’t my twin sister, I’d say you looked beautiful. But since we look alike, that would be totally weird. So, instead, I’ll say you have GREAT HAIR!"

    This made me laugh out loud – seriously, it was so funny. I am a twin too and totally get that!
    good work jas. xo

    Amazing! I’ve been waiting for these ever since you said she was engaged. These are beautiful and you are two beautiful girls! Matt isn’t so bad, either! 🙂

    Absolutely wonderful.. Funny because yesterday I was at my hairdresser who is also a long time friend… She just met "the man of her dreams" on eHarmony. maybe i should give it a shot? LOL..
    I don’t know why you were hesitant to post these.. they are wonderful! and I am sure she loves them as much as she loves you!!!

  141. Velia

    June 25th, 2010 at 3:49 am

    I can’t believe you would even hesitate to post these. They are beautiful and I don’t think is weird to say your sister is beautiful. You may be a twin but you know you are GORGEOUS!!

  142. Papi

    June 25th, 2010 at 4:24 am

    LOL, I didn’t know you had a twin sister.. so as I was scrolling down to look at the pictures (and no, I didn’t read the post nor captions like I should first)..and immediately, I thought, "oh no, this guy doesn’t look like JD..what’s going on here?!" 😉 Congrats to your sister 🙂 Beautiful pix!

    Jasmine, these pictures are beautiful!! The slideshow, I’m speechless. I felt butterflies in my stomach as I was watching it. I know, I feel like a dork. Loved it 🙂

  149. frankglodek

    June 25th, 2010 at 6:09 am

    I loved the shots. What fun you guys must have! I think my favorites were the one of Bianca and Matt sitting on the log in the yard (the setup seemed random, but is so visually interesting) and of course the last "rawr" shot. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  150. Holli True

    June 25th, 2010 at 6:12 am

    GORGEOUS! 🙂 Honestly, you are both total knockouts. Own it! How amazing for both of you to be able to share in this special time together. You did her proud, Jasmine. 🙂 Congrats, Bianca & Matt!

    They are so cute together, gorgeous photos. The "I can make her laugh and my parents don’t get it" thing reminds me of my mom and her twin sister. They think they are hilarious, and none of us get it either. 🙂

    Jasmine- In reading all your posts ans such, I don’t think I’ve ever commented, but when I saw Bianca’s gorgeous photos that you took, I decided I had to say something. Your family is so much like mine. Seriously! I have a special bond with my sisters, parents, and brother. They are always saying how we need our own reality show! Hehehehe. I appreciate your love of life and of your family. We are so lucky to have been blessed. May God continue to bless you and JD, and your Juarez familia! I look forward to more of your stories and amazing pictures! Take care, Dina

    July 2nd, 2010 at 8:05 am

    i literally felt like crying out of pure happiness when i perused through this blog of your sister(whom I now follow on twitter thanks to u!)and her fiance that you did. 1st)if they were not manifested straight out of Heaven then I don’t know Heaven….i know Heaven and this couple is straight up JESUS in the FLESH but TWO people meant to be together since the beginning of time!!!!! 2nd)i feel the same way about eharmony as your sister so maybe i should try it ha!!! 3rd)the way your sister thinks you are hilarious just made me so happy. I love your love for eachother!!!!!! 4th)pictures worth a trillion words…..great job sis dare i say older sis by a minute? you captured her and her man well!!!

  192. Truc

    July 9th, 2010 at 6:58 pm

    I recently joined eHarmony because I feel like I am in the same situation that Bianca was in. Granted I only joined a few weeks ago, but this girl here has 1 Full Time job, 1 Part Time job and a photography business on the side – so I am always so busy that I never have the time to go out and meet people but it’s refreshing to know that somewhere out there is someone for me, even if we have to meet online first before in person. Congratulations Bianca and Matt!

  195. Ana

    July 14th, 2010 at 8:46 am

    Gosh reading about Bianca’s happy ending really gives me hope as someone who reacted the same way whenever someone suggested going through an internet service because I just don’t have the time to meet anyone just right and seeing these fantastic photos of a happy pretty lady cements it! 😀 LOL I love the "great hair!" comment too! Fabulous photos as always and thanks so much for sharing this story for someone who still fears signing up and actually going through those services.

  196. Heather Walker

    July 19th, 2010 at 3:25 am

    So are all the shots on your site, your self portraits..or photos of your sister!?? That is funny… I bet that is a really strange but neat thing to have someone that looks just like you in the world…

    Do you two have photos together?

    Beautiful couple! Before I read the story, I looked at the images. I’m thinking, "Who is this guy Jasmine is taking pictures with? Is this a test shoot?" :-}

  201. Chris Johnston

    November 4th, 2010 at 5:14 pm

    "I was too nervous to ask if we could shoot in front of it…so I made Matt go and do it! ;)"
    I can’t believe the world-famous Jasmine Star is afraid to ask someone for permission to take a picture. In all seriousness this actually makes me feel better. I’m so afraid to approach total strangers to ask to take their pics and its why I’ve focused on wildlife, landscapes, and my own kids. It makes me realize that it is OK and even people are successful still have those fears. Difference is, they find a way to work around them or through them and don’t quit.

  202. Diana Elizabeth

    December 22nd, 2010 at 2:15 am

    Jasmine, you are TOO funny, "
    Bianca, if you weren’t my twin sister, I’d say you looked beautiful. But since we look alike, that would be totally weird. So, instead, I’ll say you have GREAT HAIR!" You are precious. B, of course you look gorgeous! Inside and out!

  203. Tris

    August 9th, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    OMG! That is SOOOOOO CUTE! She looks JUST LIKE YOU! I guess that’s the whole twin thing, right? HAHA!

    Their story is super-dooper cute!

    Tris – 🙂
