{ Jaclyn & Mark in Vegas :: with Jasmine Star & JD! }

While in Vegas for WPPI, I got an extraordinary opportunity to shoot with Jasmine Star, her husband JD, and 19 other photographers.  Jasmine is a huge inspiration to me and many young photographers – we’ve all watched her skyrocket to success in just two short years.  She has a fabulous blog, where she highlights her shoots, weddings, and personal stories.  She has a huge heart, huge smile, she truly cares about her clients and her work, and she’s incredibly humble considering the amazing images she produces!  I felt so blessed to be able to shoot with her, and I learned so much about her process and the way she sees a scene.

Okay, so it’s Tuesday morning, 6:45 am, we’re all exhausted from a full WPPI day the day before, but we’re excited, charged, and ready… and bundled up in coats for the chilly morning air.  Our lovely models, Jaclyn & Mark, are looking absolutely fabulous and ready to bring it!  They flew in from Kansas just for this!


Jasmine & JD workin’ it ~
I looooove this shot!
Jaclyn’s superfabulous shoes!
This is so sweet – I don’t know what he’s saying to her, but she’s melting!
To the alley for some crazy-fab shots – so fierce!
Giggling at each other between fabulousness ;)
Mark looking all GQ
Loving the light here… so beautiful ~
Workin’ it for Jasmine ~
After the shoot, we had an awesome Q/A session, and then Jasmine gave me a big hug before I left.  JD took a picture of Jasmine and me with my camera, but I’m looking a little f-to-the-ug, so I’ll spare you that one. Hey, it was 6:45 am. My face looks all squishy that early and don’t even ask what was up with my hair… Ick. I don’t know how Jaclyn and Mark managed to look so fierce that early, but they totally rocked it! Thanks again for being the best models evah!! And of course, huge thank you to Jasmine and JD for having all of us, we all had SUCH a great time!
PS – if you scroll way down on Jasmine’s blog to the preview post, there are a couple shots of all of us – you can see me – I’m the tall one in back, shooting with a long lens :)
