Jasmine Star Workshop in Orange County | Vancouver Wedding Photographer

I have been reading Jasmine Star’s blog for the past year and have always been a huge fan.  When I heard she was going to be doing a Workshop, I couldn’t wait to sign up!  Unfortunately, I was too slow and it was sold out in 20 minutes!   When the notice for her 3rd Workshop was released, I immediately signed up…lucky for me, I got a spot!  I made some new friendships with some pretty rock star photographers!  We had a ton of fun and look forward to keeping in touch with all of them.

I think it is so important to take workshops and I try to take at least one a year.  They help you push yourself and keep your business fresh. 

It was a jam packed day full of branding information and a live shoot with one of Jasmine’s previous clients.  Vern & Melinda knocked it out of the park!  They looked fantastic and were absolutely at ease in front of the camera.

  • Jasmine* said:

    Fran, it was so nice meeting you and I'm thrilled you walked away with such great imagery. Watch out Canada...Fran is back with an extra ounce of fabulousness! :)

  • how'd you sneak in there and get all the straight on single portraits. you are STEALTH. It looks like you have a special soft box following you around. you are full of tricks. i think one of the best things about the workshop was hanging out with cool people... i think you're on that list... for sure you're on that list. i hope you are feeling well!!!

    I Third Meegan! Love your skies! Mine are always blown out =(.
    Love the dancing ones. I don't remember that?

    It was nice to meet you chica!

  • Those are so stunning. I love that B&W of the two of them (about in the middle) - but they all are wonderful shots. They must be very pleased.
