Jasmine Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to Jasmine Photography!

    Photography will always be a part of my life. A big thank you goes out to my grandfather and my parents for loving the art and exposing me to it at an early age. With over eleven years of professional shooting I enjoy seeing the happiness between two couples in love, the laughter of family and seeing a genuine smile emerge. It's also my job to make my subject look their best in camera. I will direct you for the best pose, put you in the best light, and we'll have fun the whole time!

    Every click of my shutter creates a lasting memory for you and your family. The images featured here are how I see people, objects and places through a lens. Thanks for stopping by, contact me with any questions you may have. Enjoy!

We’re married!

Life has been busy over the past few months with planning a small, intimate wedding. My awesome husband and I had an amazing day that went by way to quickly. If only you could add more hours to the day! We lucked out with 80 degree weather on May 12th and had a lovely outdoor ceremony. I picked some of my favorite local vendors to help create our day and couldn’t have been happier with each of them.  Here are a few images from our day, I hope you are getting excited for yours. I have a couple more dates available for the 2012 year, contact me at lxs@jasminephotography.com for more info!

Our day wouldn’t have come together without the talented Portland vendors listed below. Thank you all for making our wedding day so special and memorable!

I’m still here!

Wow, I can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted on my blog. I feel like such a slacker! What have I been doing you ask? Well, The Art of Weddings 2012 event kept me super busy. In addition to the event I updated the website myself. I’m super excited to announce that it combines everything into one site. You can find info from the annual bridal show, a blog with wedding style boards, real weddings and advice along with a dedicate vendor search for Portland wedding vendors. Head over and check it out and then follow me on the Art of Wedding facebook page as well and you can find me on Pinterest pinning away! Whew, we have been busy online.

I’m still shooting but only a limited amount of weddings for 2012 as well as portraits. It’s a first come basis so if you are interested in my work shoot me an email and we can talk about your upcoming wedding or portrait idea.

You can find me over on facebook where I’m a little better at updating and adding images under the Jasmine Photography fan page.

In the meantime here are a few images I have shot in the past few months. Enjoy and have a great day.

A sweet tea house wedding I photographed down in Tualatin, Oregon. It was a lovely event with family and close friends. After the ceremony everyone gathered for an afternoon of tea and finger foods.

There was a woodland feel to this small wedding at a church in Southwest Portland. With emerald green’s for the accent color and the couple getting their wedding date tattooed on their ring finger, it was a unique and touching event.

Happy New Year!!!

Wow, can you believe 2012 is here?! It came fast and so many people I know were very ready for it. A new year means a fresh start, new goals and the opportunity to better your life. I wish all you the best in the upcoming new year. So once again I have neglected my funky little blog.

I have been knee deep in building a new website and planning the 2012 Art of Weddings event. I’m very excited to announce and show you the newly updated Art of Wedding website! It’s clean, modern look combines the blog, annual event and vendor search into one site. Visit the new site at www.artofweddingspdx.com.

Of course, the annual Art of Weddings bridal show is right around the corner. Taking place on January 19th, 2012 from 6-9:30pm it is going to be the best one yet. The vendor line up is amazing! There will be a dedicated area for the man in your life, brought to you by the Groom’s List so feel free to bring him along…he won’t get bored! A fabulous fashion show with local designers, culinary delights, sweet treats from cakes to ice cream, and so much more!

Buy your tickets online to save $5 on standard tickets and if you want to treat yourself to a VIP evening, enter the discount code: congrats to receive $10 off those tickets. (online only) VIP’s will receive an amazing gift bag, pre-entry to the event at 5pm, a seat for the fashion show and a complimentary signature cocktail.

The Art of Weddings 2012

So yes, my posting has been lacking. I have good reason though. I’ve been busy organizing my annual event, The Art of Weddings. Each year the event changes which keeps it fresh and exciting. I started it over seven years ago and believe it or not but it was the first boutique bridal show in Portland. It has been paving the way ever since as a model for other shows but none can compare to it. The vendors displays are top notch, the fashion show is inspiring and everyone has a great time! So I have been working on getting fabulous vendors for you engaged couples and the 2012 event is shaping up to be the best yet, taking place at the modern Pure Space. We are excited!

I’m also busy working on something related to the event, which is taking me away from Jasmine Photography. I am still shooting but a very limited number of weddings for 2012. It is gonna be good folks, so stay tuned. Follow the event on facebook to be the first to know what is happening!

The website is being updated daily with logos, so check it out. Also you can watch the wonderful video from the last show to get a feel of what it is all about! Just click on the image below to watch it. Thanks to Ambient Sky for putting it together. Enjoy!

Danielle + Dane’s Wedding

You may remember this stylish couple from their fun engagement session. They had the photos by the red pick up truck and dressed all vintage cute. Well, their big day arrived on September 10th and it was really a wonderful one. The event took place in Gearhart, Oregon at McMenamin’s Sandtrap. They rented homes for the girls and guys to get ready in and we all met up at the guys house for family photos. They worried about the fog a few days before but when the wedding day came, the clouds broke and the sun shined. They partied late into the evening and of course, it was really hard to narrow down what to show you here. Enjoy!
