My Blog bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog!

    Check back often to see some of the hottest wedding photography in Arizona. Especially any weddings shot between May - September, well you know it's going to be hot! For those of you who don't know me, I am Jasmine...Jazzy to my friends. If you are a fan or a frequent blog stalker, welcome back! I studied photography during high school and college and interned with some of the best photographers in the Bay Area who are conveniently my family members. I take a fun, romantic and candid approach to photography.
    I love couples who let me photograph them in cotton fields, train tracks and orchards. Yeah...I'm not your parents photographer! Contact me to let me photograph your special day and we'll play, laugh and together we'll take some of the best photographs of your life!

    Now for cute anecdotal information about my personal life...I married my best friend who also happens to be my second shooter and we have two little ones Finley Rae & Caden Byrd. They are our whole world! Make sure to book mark the blog and don't be a stranger. :)

Carol & Brendt’s Desert Botanical Garden Wedding

No matter how many weddings I photograph…I take something differant away from each one. This gorgeous wedding was filled with Southwest beauty and charm. The love and friendship the Hamlet’s feel for each other is palpable and it infused the entire wedding party with love. The Desert Botanical Garden was the perfect setting for this sweet couple!

A very special and warm thank you to Amanda from Butterly Petals for always taking such good care of our brides and making their floral designs spectacular! Amanda…you rock!

Seriously, one of the things that really attracted me to your photography was the beautiful pictures of bouquets! Being just a state away, I have never seen succulents used, and I LOVE the difference they make.
P.S. that’s probably the best “you may now kiss the bride picture ever. My personal favorites though is the kissing one between the giant cactus. and the kissing one above it with everyone celebrating. Beautiful!! (I guess I like kissing pictures today!) :)

David & Kristen

Yes, I know I say it all the time…”this was my favorite wedding!”  And truly, I mean it each and every time because I fall in love with my bride & groom and am inspired by their love.  But this fall, I was honored to witness a very special wedding between two amazing people.  Luckily for me, it was lightly raining that day…so it was easy to blame the soft rain on the drops that were spotted rolling down my cheeks.
Kristen found me on The Knot and we instantly hit it off during our first conversation.  Even then…I knew I was going to witness something special.  Although she and her family live in California, her parents own a beautiful patch of land here in Arizona.  Drew and I drove four hours to get there and boy was it ever worth it!  Kristen had always dreamt of getting married on the rural and rustic family property and her groom David and her dad made that dream come true.  They brought in generators and dad even built the gorgeous Gazebo.  This was truly a labor of love.  The bridesmaids  lovingly picked out many of the vintage plates & decorative pieces by scouring antique stores in Southern California.  They say a beautiful event is in the details…and this wedding was living proof of that!
The bride looked exquisite in her retro inspired gown from Anthropologie.  Their darling daughter Hollyn was a big part of the festivity and practically stole the show…she is as beautiful and kind as her mother.  The guests who all drove up from Ontario, California didn’t seem to mind a little rain…there was merriment in the air.  And when the Mariachi’s started playing and the groom’s parents began to sing a beautiful Spanish ballad to honor the bride & groom all of us knew we were in the presence of great love.  Kristen, David and Hollyn thank you so much for allowing my husband and I to capture your love…it was an unforgettable time.
