    I love reading your blog daily, it’s true what one of your other readers said, I read this blog more than I read the newspaper. Keep up the fantastic work and I look forward to the new year and your new inspiration… let me know when you come to Cape Town, I’d love to have a portfolio done.

    Jas*-Hey any chance a girl can get a playlist of the songs from your website?

  39. Elena

    February 6th, 2008 at 7:33 am

    Hi, Jasmine, your work is outstanding! I have one question about the stories behind the photos. When do you ask couple how did they meet? I think it is a great way to melt the ice, but when is the best way to do it? Maybe you have other methods that help melt those ices, and could share it with us?
    Thank you for being who you are – you are a true inspiration!

    We’ve emailed before…but I just had to tell you that I love your blog. You inspired me to start one of my own though it is not as eloquent as yours! Keep on writing. I enjoy hearing about what is going on in your life and heart.

    hey j*!!! i just saw your interview on the [b] school blog. carlie and i loved it… although you did look a little nervous ;). anyways, what you talked about is so true… i know you made carlie and i feel like super-models with every shoot we had. you rock!

    Hey there! Marc Whipple directed me to your blog, which I’ve been reading the past few days (instead of working, oops!). While my photographic interests tend more towards musicians than marriage, your enthusiasm and success and images are an inspiration! Thank you for sharing so much of yourself!

    February 16th, 2008 at 5:22 am

    Hey J*! Is it too late to comment on your V-day post? No engagement or wedding date here… but it does mark 9 years of ‘dating’ *wink,wink* with 6.5 years of marriage one two-year-old and a womb with a view 😉
    TFS your work and your life!

    Hi J*! Can I just say that I absolutely LOVE your photographs and your blog. I literally spent a few hours going thru most of your OLD BLOG, can you believe it? I feel like I already know you, it’s wierd, but I love the stories you tell about you and JD. I can only hope to someday find someone as sweet as he seems. You should do a blog on when/how you met.. how he proposed, etc! I appreciate that you add details of who did the floral arrangements, cake, etc when you blog the weddings. I must take note to someday use in my wedding! Thanks a lot1

    Hi J*, I know you have a lot to do, but as your fan, I want to know all your secrets so I’ve tagged you to play this joke and to tell 7 awesome things about you that nobody (unless JD) knows …. I hope you can play and tag another 7 people … the rules were in my blog … Thanks and have a good week!!!!

    I’ve been a longtime fan + lurker of yours. I just love your work. I guess the song on your latest engagement session really got me. Could you tell me who it is?

  56. Gena McMillan

    March 6th, 2008 at 12:45 am

    J*, as I’m sure you already know, you are about your 6,000 comments, and unless I missed it you didn’t post a picture for your 6,000! It’s a tradition!!!

  57. Gena McMillan

    March 6th, 2008 at 12:46 am

    opps I suck a typing I meant you are over your 6,000 comments

    Hi Jasmine!

    I’m about to enter college soon and for a while I was stumped about what course to take. I used to want to be a nurse, but then I realized I wanted to pursue photography more. I was torn between going for passion or security..

    I’ve been following your blog for about a month now, I even read some of your first posts in your old blog (No, I’m not a stalker.. I’m not! I’m not!;P) and I just want to say how truly an amazing person you are, your being down-to-earth despite possessing the most extraordinary qualities. =] Your story encourages me to go for what I want, with fears of course but with much needed inspiration.=)

    Hi J*, can I ask you a relationed question??? I know you use Mac computer for editing your pictures, ok, so you can tell me wich is the best LCD monitor (costXbenefits) yhat you recommend for professional use and accurate print results?? Maybe you can do a FAQ about this quaestion someday … Thanks

  62. Lindsay Kipp Photography

    March 11th, 2008 at 4:51 pm

    I like Erika Lais’ question about the Mac. I am in search for the perfect computer as well and would love to know what you suggest. Thanx so much!

  63. Jasmine*

    March 11th, 2008 at 6:26 pm

    @Erika&Lindsay: I have the 34-inch MAC monitor. When it comes to making such a big financial decision, I think it’s best not to cut corners. Over the long-run, it’s totally worth the investment! And I LOVE the huge monitor as I edit…it’s a dream! 🙂

  64. Erika Lais

    March 12th, 2008 at 1:57 pm

    Thanks J*, Iwas wondering about a MAC monitor, but not so big!!!!!! kkkkk …. Maybe a 23” …

  65. Gena McMillan

    March 17th, 2008 at 4:15 am

    Hey J*, hope you are having a blast in Vegas. I just had a quick question. Can you show us a picture of your histogram and the bell curve you were menaing when you talked about metering for Skin tones?

    Hey Jasmine,
    i can’t believe i completely missed you at wppi! it was my first time and what a rookie i was, i missed a few things here and there.. 😉 i am not sure if that was you at Paris in the lobby, wearing cowgirl boots and a lovely florally print dress with an LV bag? I was so captivated by your outfit and you and another girl was looking down that i didn’t think it was you until i got on the plane heading home.. was that jasmine??

    March 24th, 2008 at 10:57 pm

    I love your blog! I have one quick question. How do you shoot your pictures? Manual? I just love the colors in your photo. Do you put it through Lightroom or Photoshop? Keep doing what you’re doing your great…

  71. Jasmine*

    March 26th, 2008 at 9:04 pm

    @Shelly: I’m a total blogger, so I read WAY too many blogs to list!! I probably shouldn’t admit that! 😉 @Mikal: Thanks for stopping by! If you click on the SEARCH icon in the upper right of this blog and type in FAQ, it’ll take you to all my recent posts regarding your questions…hope this helps! 🙂

    Have you looked at your last two posts? The first one is about sweets and the next one is about getting a root canal. I think that’s funny (not that you having to have a root canal is funny)! Good luck with it all and have a great birthday!
