The Art of Second Shooting : Photography Course


TODAY is the day! We woke up at 4:30 this morning for last minute prep (okay, and from sheer nerves!), but we are excited to see JD host his first ever teaching experience. He’s been a second shooter for seven years and today he’ll be sharing more about what it’s like from an insider’s perspective. The Art of Second Shooting is a FREE two day course and together we’ll be teaching the ins and outs of First and Second Shooting on a wedding day.

    Hi Jasmine,

    I just wanted to let you know I received the fabulous ‘EXPOSED’ yesterday. I was delighted to get it so soon. After reading it on one sitting, I like you more than before 😀 You are real and you gave me lots of insights for my growth. Thank you. Greetings from Austria.

    Jasmine & JD, your courses have helped more people than you will ever know. You do not make clones of yourselves but push us on as our own selves, giving us so many shortcuts. Thank you!

    Jasmine, I can’t thank you and JD enough for all the support and information you have given me. I started out as a Stay at home mom looking for something to fill the emptiness I felt. I needed to be creative and have something of my own. I stumbled upon your blog one day and I’ve been stalking you ever since. I even went back and read every single blog post you have ever written. Creeper alert! Anyways I just wanted to say thank you for being such a inspiration. You’ve made me laugh, cry, strive, and just be a better person. God Bless! I wish you all the best. Keeping my fingers crossed for myself!
