When I first heard about Jasmine Star coming to London to teach a workshop I simply screamed of joy! I couldn’t believe I would have finally have the opportunity to meet her and learn from her directly, the master and I surely wasn’t going to miss it!

I discovered Jasmine Star on my birthday last year when she took part of her first Creative Live event and that day my life changed, literally.

On meeting her I was delighted to see that she was exactly the same person I thought she would be, so sincere and true to herself and a really clever and astute business woman.

I would highly recommend Jasmine’s workshop to any photographer seriously wanting to take their business to the next level, it surely was worth every penny. Jasmine talked openly about every aspect of her business and answered every single question that was asked of her honestly and concisely.

I have learned so much and I now know what steps I need to make to shape up my business and make it happen. It is not going to be easy but I surely will enjoy see my business grow how I have always dreamed.

The workshop was held at the fabulous venue One Marylebone and I have to say, it was just perfect in true Jasmine Star style. I so would love to shoot a wedding there, it’s so classy, elegant and the light is simply divine.

We did a shoot with Jasmine Star! How amazing to see her work, she is fast and the way she interact with her client is what gives her photos the natural and timeless appeal. Rachel and Dan were our lovely newly wed couple and a joy to photograph.Rachel was glowing, her hair was styled by Severin from The Hepburn Collection and her make up done by the gorgeous Make Up Artist Elbie Van Eeden. Rachel you looked so beautiful!

I am crazy about cup cakes, who knows me well know that, but the mini cakes that Charlotte from The Restoration Cake made were just the cutest ever!

I was privileged to be part of this amazing workshop and I am extremely grateful to the awesome Kat Williams of Rock’n’Roll Bride for make it possible, organising it all in true style. Meeting all the other super talented participants which I know I will keep in touch with and enjoy celebrating everyone’s progress.

And here are the stars, thank you Kat for making this possible and thank you Jasmine and JD for being who you are.
