Looking for a photographer is basically like swiping left or right on tinder until you find the perfect match... HA... lame joke I know. So let me tell you a bit more about myself to see if we are the perfect match.
I have been doing this thing called photography for about 8 years. the most asked question is "hey jasmine how did you get into photography?" well, let me tell you i was the girl in high school who carried a camera all the time documenting my senior year, that was almost 8 years ago and i love looking back on those memories. I recently just went full time and it was one of the scariest thing's i've done but I am so happy I did it. I truly believe you should spend life doing things you love so I am living by that motto.
I live in Long Beach, CA with my dog Rocket + Coco, my parents and two younger sisters. I love to spend most of my days hanging out with my family listening to 80's music and cooking. If I am not at home or at Disneyland, I am either on a plane or in a car traveling to a new place to explore! I remember one time I randomly wanted to go to San Francisco, so we headed out at 11pm to watch the sun rise over the Golden Gate Bridge and came back home a couple hours later. I am always down to create new memories and document them. I am honestly the reason why my family has photos and videos to look back on! If you wanna know more about me and what I am up to check out my blog!
My role as your photographers is not to capture posed, picture perfect, unrealistic moments for instagram. I am here to document memories to last a lifetime. Have you ever looked back on photos from your childhood or even from a year ago? That nostalgic feeling overcomes you and you get to relive that moment almost instantly. That is honestly why I love what I do and why I treat each session and wedding like it were my own.
I take the time to get to know you, your significant other and your love story. I don't want to be some stranger that shows up to your session or wedding and shove my camera in your face. I want to know about the highs, the lows, what makes you two the people you are, how he/she makes you feel, etc. Getting to know my couples over time seriously helps the experience you will have with me. This helps calm the nerves you might have when it comes time to have your photos taken. It will make your time with me much more intimate and unique to you two.
I've invested the past 8 years into my photography and over time I've learned that I am not the photographer for everyone and that is okay. I am the photographer for the couples who love hard, who want to document their memories and not picture-perfect photos. I vow to laugh, ugly cry and give you my all. So if you think we will be a great fit send me a message and let's create new memories!
Wow, where do I start with how our session went with Jasmine. We had a couples photo shoot at the crack of dawn and somehow she made us feel like we had 4 cups of coffee! Haha this girl brought the energy and we fed off of it! She is one of the sweetest photographers we’ve worked with and made us feel so comfortable. We can’t wait to work with her again in the future and admire her love for photography. She really does put so much effort into her work. I mean how did she make us look so good after waking up at 4 in the morning for our photo shoot? This girl is AMAAAZING.
I’ve never done any kind of photo shoot. I was kind of expecting for Jasmine to just be like “ok guys just be yourself,” and then my fiancé and I would just look at each other awkwardly not really knowing what to do. It was so great and such a relief having Jasmine guide us through the whole experience. It was a lot of fun and she made it so easy. I’m so excited I have these pictures for the rest of my life.
I, like many others, found out about Jasmine on instagram. After stalking various profiles for the perfect wedding photographer, I became obsessed with Jasmine’s page, her style, and the warm tones she captures so effortlessly. Jasmine is the perfect photographer if you’re looking for fun, natural, and romantic photos. My fiancé and I are so happy with our engagement photos and Jasmine has an incredible talent to capture personalities that came through so clearly in our gallery. Not only was she so sweet and so fun but she was able to transform the top of a parking garage into the most romantic photo shoot set. We are so happy to have chosen Jasmine as our photographer and cannot wait for her to capture our wedding day next month in her own unique style!
