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!

Urban Family Portraits

Urban backdrop for family photos, yes please! Let’s get out of the park and into the grit of the city. With textures and colors to work with, you never know what you’ll find around the corner that will be a great background for an image. I had a great time with the Clarkson family and the boys even enjoyed the photo shoot! Mission accomplished:)

Are you looking for some great family photos? Follow me on Facebook for updates, portrait specials and more! How do you do that? Simple, just click the facebook box on the right side of this blog. It’s almost fall so the fall portrait special is just around the corner.

Sally + Dallas = Married!

Sally and Dallas said “I Do” on January 29th, 2011. It didn’t rain out at the scenic Columbia Gorge Hotel and we were able to walk around the grounds to take some pics of the happy couple. Despite the crisp chill in the air Sally kept warm with a lovely vintage fur wrap. Grandma made all the flower arrangement and the bouquet for the bride. It was an emotional day for Sally. Having her dad there to walk her down the aisle meant a lot since he had been very ill. He gave a touching toast and everyone celebrated into the evening with the newlyweds. Enjoy the slideshow.

Jane + Nick’s Wedding

Jane and Nick held an intimate ceremony at the charming Oaks Pioneer Church on the popular 10.10.10 date. Family and close friends attended the ceremony then everyone headed back over to the Waverly Country Club where more guests arrived to help them celebrate. Guests mingled, drank and snacked on appetizers all evening. Then the party really got started when the band started playing! Live music is so different than having a DJ, it adds a more interactive element and pumps folks up to dance! Click below to watch the slideshow of highlights from their fall wedding. Enjoy!

Danielle + Dane’s Engagement. Part 2

The second half of Danielle and Dane’s engagement session was a retro picnic in the park. Just a reminder this couple brought all the props for this shoot. She bought vintage soda (it was warm when they were drinking it!), a plaid blanket, wicker picnic box, old books and vintage camera. I was very impressed with everything she brought and it made for a really fun shoot. When you have props or something to do it makes the shoot easier for you. Many couples are very nervous to have their photo taken and this takes a bit of the pressure off. Enjoy!

Danielle + Dane’s Engagement Session. Part 1

One of the things that draws me to photography is that when it really clicks (no pun intended) is when the people I’m working with are also creative and have a vision for their shoot. They don’t micro manage it. They show up ready with props, clothing options and we have talked about locations ahead of time. Then it all comes together the day of and they let me do my thing, composing and taking the images. I think when a couple see’s images online and likes them and then tells the photographer things like, “what if we pose like this or I do this and he does that?” it starts to take the creativity away from the photographer. At least that is what happens with me. My vision starts to fade and now I’m just shooting.

This was not the case with Danielle & Dane. I couldn’t have been more thrilled to see what they had brought with them when I arrived on site. Classic red chevy truck, yes please! This was their first idea; that they are going out on a date and the truck breaks down. Below some of my favorites from part one of their engagement session. Enjoy!
