For the past decade, I’ve been blessed to work with amazing creative teams to create and document unforgettable weddings.  Over the years I’ve been published in national magazines (The Knot, Town&Country, Inside Weddings, Destination I Do, Ceremony, Brides, to name a few) and the most recognized wedding blogs in the world (the likes of Martha […]

Today I’ll be sharing what lenses I use during distinct portions of a wedding day (preparation, reception, ceremony, etc). I’ll be walking through the process in which my mind works (minus the thoughts of glitter, temptations to dance, and the constant desire for dessert) in relation to what I’m carrying with me. As I’ve mentioned […]

Last night I spoke as part of an online workshop and a photographer asked me if I show every photo shoot.  She also asked how to move away from shooting things she doesn’t find inspiring.  I briefly answered the question on the webinar, but I wanted to follow up and share, exactly, how I feel.

A few days ago, I chatted with one of my dearest photographer friends. In the midst of talking about basketball, books, and writing, we started talking about gear. And if someone heard our conversation, it’d probably sound like two guys wearing oily t-shirts, with a pack of cigarettes tucked in a rolled up sleeve, talking […]

Dear Jasmine I would like to know your thought process of shooting with only one camera on you and also why you choose not to use a strap. I would also love to know how you go about focusing your camera i.e back button, one shot, ai servo etc and your reasoning behind this. Your […]

I’m currently out of the country until Thursday for a conference, but I’m sitting in a hotel room early in the morning, so it still feels a little like home. Except I miss Polo. He’s usually up with me in the morning, curled in between my legs as I sit in bed. I don’t think […]

I’m often asked for marketing tips or how-to. When trying to build a business, entrepreneurs search for ways to maximize exposure in the shortest amount of time. I get it. I, however, think traditional forms of advertising are fading and new opportunities are sprouting for people to develop a voice. When I first started my […]
