Okay ladies, this one is for you. Today’s guest photographer is Jasmine Star and if you are married, then chances are you have seen her work. She is the queen of bridal photography and is regularly featured in all of those magazines you subscribe to once you get engaged. I have to admit that we were pretty stoked when we received this image from Jasmine. You see this is not only an image of a beautiful bride outshining her “John Doe” husband, but a huge product endorsement for a great cause. Please read below for the scoop and then check out her high tech website at http://jasmine-star.com. For the men out there about to get married please remember one thing. Your wife, most likely, has been dreaming of this day since she was 9 years old, let her have her have whatever she wants to make it special.
Enter Jasmine Star:
The world is incredibly vast and though one might feel the overwhelming sense of limitless human connections, I’ve been blessed to cross paths with amazing people. The type of people who want to leave the world a better place than they found it. The girls at http://31bits.com are doing just that. They travel to Uganda to buy handmade jewelry from a small group of women, providing them with the freedom to overcome their financial suffering. Since then, this amazing organization has used profits to fund AIDS education, English lessons, vocational training and so much more in Uganda.
As a wedding photographer, I was asked to shoot a few photos from their newly launched bridal jewelry, and I was more than happy to oblige. I was honored to join this team to spread the world in order to help women in Africa find their artistic voices.
