Sweet and the Not-So-Sweet


There are two versions of Paul, ShowIt’s amazing videographer.

The Sweet and the Not-So-Sweet.


Take a look at this innocent face…doesn’t he look like the good boy next door?

I captured this photo of Paul while he shot along side me during the engagement shoot in Las Vegas. There were a few emails asking if photographers could tag along and while I initially loved the idea, I want to make sure that I use these sessions as a way for me to click with my clients and get to know them on a personal basis. If there were fifteen other photographers, I think it would have been difficult. In lieu of this, Paul offered to come along and film me…with hopes of posting snippets of my clients in action from a real shoot.

Here are a few still frames from video of what’s to come…

I Am So Cool It Hurts.


Here’s a blooper from Shelley&Brett’s Wedding we shot together last month. This is precisely why I worry bringing along a videographer…he has all my dorkiness ON FILM.

    My first wedding (last month), I accidentally knocked over an actual vintage framed photograph of the bride’s grandparents. It was on a table strewn with those small tealight candles, and it landed right onto on of them. I didn’t know I knocked the frame over until the aunt of the groom rescued the photograph from being completely on fire. Phew! That woman saved my career. Good times.

    I found your site off of your dad’s blog…we love when he visits our church here in Albuquerque. I met Bianca when I worked as an admin asst to one of our Pastors. Your family is so beautiful! And your work is AMAZING! Wish I lived in CA so I could have you photograph my baby boy! Thanks for sharing your photos online!!!

    Your comment to Paul made it hilarious! I’ve almost lost my balance a few times standing on chairs while shooting and can just see this happening to myself in the future. I can’t wait to see the video from the engagement shoot!!

    I am really looking forward to seeing your clips of the session. Ow! on the whacking into the wall. Hope it didn’t leave a bruise…did the couple notice?

    Don’t worry Jasmine, I have some videos up of me in Vegas on my blog too (click my link) and they pretty much prove I am the supreme master of dorkiness.

    You are so awesome! I love how vulnerable you are with your fans! Don’t worry, you’re still stylin’, girl! P.S. My 3 y/o thought he was watching bloopers on YouTube and got excited and wanted to watch again and again. See, he loves you too! *smooches*

    Great video Jasmine. On another note, how stylish do you look with your boots and jacket in the engagement shoot! I’d be so uncomfortable in those shoes on a shoot – don’t you worry about wrecking them? Goes to show that you are a fashionista Miss Star!

    Haha! That is hysterical – I love it!! Also, great idea to post a video(s) of you shooting…. I can’t wait to see it (or them!) I have often thought it would be cool really "see" you in action and this may be as close as many of us get!! Thanks Jasmine! Your the best!

    March 24th, 2008 at 3:16 pm

    I loved the clip! so cute! I also love the behind the scenes shots because it makes me feel like less of a dork when I lay on the floor (which I find myself doing quite often) You look great by the way!

    love the energy during the shoot.

  66. Steve Sandala

    March 25th, 2008 at 1:15 am

    Isn’t it funny how when that happens you hardly notice it because you are SO focused on getting the shot.

    I thought you were going to bump into the videographer.

  67. Elaine

    March 25th, 2008 at 2:10 am

    Heehee…You’re such a good sport!

  71. Melanie Watson

    March 25th, 2008 at 8:56 pm

    Yeah I have a tendency to fall into things when I shoot… random holes in the ground, vicious beach dunes that pop out of nowhere… its pretty bad but thankfully I have no videographer following me. My theory… our clumsiness makes us fantastic photographers! Yeah I’m sticking to it! At least you look hot bumping into things… and that is what really matters! 😉

  72. Nataly

    March 25th, 2008 at 9:23 pm

    I love this blog entry 😛 I thought it was so funny when you were asking if he was going to cut that part out and then I see his quote! Too funny! I think we’ve all had our share of ouchie’s! lol

    Hi Jasmine,
    This is the first time i have commented but i remember i did a beach wedding once many years ago and they stood on a dance floor like area so when it was time for me to photograph the signing i nealy landed on my butt. Sand and dance floors = slippery surface. Guests saw me but hopefully none remember. Ohh well, can’t help but be myself.

    March 31st, 2008 at 4:43 am

    That is too funny! Glad to know I am not the only person who runs into things. This weekend I almost took down a keyboard and bumped into some lady spilling water down her blouse…. oops!
