The Art of Second Shooting : Photography Course

© Jasmine Star. This post cannot be republished without permission. Stealing makes me sad.
TODAY is the day! We woke up at 4:30 this morning for last minute prep (okay, and from sheer nerves!), but we are excited to see JD host his first ever teaching experience. He's been a second shooter for seven years and today he'll be sharing more about what it's like from an insider's perspective. The Art of Second Shooting is a FREE two day course and together we'll be teaching the ins and outs of First and Second Shooting on a wedding day.

Kim Lyn Chauvin - Jasmine, I can't thank you and JD enough for all the support and information you have given me. I started out as a Stay at home mom looking for something to fill the emptiness I felt. I needed to be creative and have something of my own. I stumbled upon your blog one day and I've been stalking you ever since. I even went back and read every single blog post you have ever written. Creeper alert! Anyways I just wanted to say thank you for being such a inspiration. You've made me laugh, cry, strive, and just be a better person. God Bless! I wish you all the best. Keeping my fingers crossed for myself!   08.12.13 - 11:18am
