Palm trees and the smell of the ocean–even if faint–were the sights and scents of their hometown in Hawaii.  They met their sophomore year of high school in math class when they were paired together for group work.  Holly thanked her lucky stars she was matched with Blaine, the smartest (and kindest) guy in class.

When Kim and I first met, it was by way of Skype.  We chatted about her wedding day, her love for Cris, and the amazing details they had planned for their wedding at Pelican Hill Resort.  I was immediately struck with her care an concern for others, and the fondness she had toward her father. […]

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.

So often I desire to be a part of something great, something bigger than myself.  Then I’m struck with the sobering realization that I don’t know where to begin.  When Natalie Franke of the Rising Tide Society asked me to opening keynote speaker for its online summit (three days, nine speakers, streamed directly to your […]

Dear Jasmine, I have a question about ‘unplugged weddings’.  Personally, I’m all for it–nothing makes me happier than the thought of brides putting the kibosh on Uncle Bob’s DSLRs, or every single person on their phone in the background of a first dance, or someone stepping into the aisle with a tablet… Have you ever […]
