You know how meeting someone you’ve admired for a long time can be a huge, massive, all- encompassing let down? Well, this wasn’t one of those times. I can honestly say that Jasmine Star and her fab hubby JD are two of the most genuine, friendly and helpful people I have ever met!
When Kat Williams of Rock n’ Roll Bride fame persuaded Jasmine to come to London to host a workshop, I jumped at the opportunity to attend. After all, this was the person who has taken the wedding photography world by storm in only a few short years in business. And I love her blog! She didn’t disappoint!
Our venue was the stunning One Marylebone, and what a gorgeous spot it was! After a morning discussing branding (with plenty of tea breaks and tasty treats), our afternoon was spent shooting real life couple Rachel and Dan. It was great seeing Jasmine in action, putting them at ease even though they had 20 cameras pointing at them!
We had to come up with three words which best describe our photography. After a moment of mind freeze, I came up with fun, relaxed and quirky. I hope the next couple of shots sum these words up.
The main thing that has stood out from the day was to be yourself. Sounds obvious, but championing your own individuality will lead to the greatest success.
I want to thank Jasmine and JD for making the trip across the pond and braving the weather to inspire us. And thanks to Kat for making it all happen. The suppliers were wonderful and I have linked to them below:
