My name is Jasmine and I am a natural light photographer located in the beautiful state of Montana! Shortly after I had graduated from high school, I took my first professional photography class. I caught on quickly and knew without a doubt that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Soon after my first class, I began my career photographing newborns in local hospitals, and at the age of 18 branched out with my own photography business.
I am very passionate about weddings. The photos I would like to share with you are from my first wedding shoot. While I have only had my business for just over a year now, I do almost everything! Although, in the future I plan to focus mainly on weddings as my primary business.
This lovely couple (Brittney & Jerod) asked me to do their engagement photos as I was just starting my business. They were the first couple I had ever charged for a session. I was nervous, but I loved the outcome of the images. Shortly after delivering their gallery to them, they asked me to do their wedding.
I absolutely adore weddings and was flattered that a couple I barely knew would trust me enough to photograph their wedding with my limited experience at the time. I am so thankful that they had enough faith in me to do their wedding because without them, I would not be where I am today. Once I had photographed their wedding, I felt pretty invincible. If I could handle a 12-hour wedding day, I could handle anything! It was definitely the confidence boost I needed to take on new challenges.
The reason why I am so passionate about wedding photography is because I love to capture people who are in love. It fills my heart with so much joy to be able to give them back the most important day of their life. Not to mention, weddings are so incredibly beautiful! How could you not want to capture every single aspect?!
This wedding changed my life and gave me hope for the future. I am growing and learning every second of every day. I am very thankful for all of the support from my friends and family for helping make this dream of mine happen and I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to hear about my story. I may be young, but I am making my dreams come true and can’t wait to see where this journey will take me.
