I admit that I am one of the thousands of Jasmine Star’s stalkers. I go
to her blog every week excited to see the next amazing wedding she
shot, reading her advice to photographers, reading about her inner
turmoil, and victories throughout her life. I can not thank her enough
for constantly inspiring me to continue to pursue my passion for
wedding photography. Her images are breath-taking…each time I see her
work, I am in tears as she has a way of capturing a moment full of
emotions so much so that you feel like you are there yourself. The
impression of her vibrant personality and giving spirit is forever
seared in my soul and is an example of the kind of photographer I
continue to strive to become.
All this just to tell you that I met my inspiration yesterday in Chicago at the Free to Succeed Tour and was blown away by her presence and passion by which she delivered her message to photographers. Her joy for photography comes from deep within her soul and she reminds us all to always follow our hearts.
Jasmine, words cannot express how grateful I am for your inspiration when I first started shooting a year ago, and as I continue to grow. Maybe we’ll shoot an Indian wedding together some day!
