EXTRA, EXTRA, read all about it…

EXPOSED – The Biggest Mistakes, Loneliest Heartbreaks & the Small Victories Along the Way

Jasmine Star has just released her limited edition magazine entitled EXPOSED – a behind the scenes look at the personal triumphs and setbacks that have catapulted her to international fame as a top wedding photographer. This is an anthology of the experiences of Jasmine Star, the person, not the business. As a fan of her work and style, I can’t wait for my copy to arrive in the mail and I promise to share with you all the juicy details! Since she is a ‘friend in my head‘, I know she wrote this JUST for me!! Thanks, girl!

I’ve always admired her tenacity and positive attitude, come what may, and strive to adopt the same philosophy in my own life. In the face of outright criticism and betrayal from people close to her, she has gone on to become a successful photographer. Check out CreativeLive’s interview with her for a sneak peak of the new magazine.

For those interested in purchasing the magazine, click here.

Congratulations, Jasmine!

It’s a new day…

by z.lynn

That song that Jennifer Hudson has been singing in those Weight Watchers commercials is stuck in my head! Mostly because I’ve been away from my business for too long and it’s time to get to work! But also because I feel that I’ve finally gotten my father and personal life stabilized enough that I can return to some semblance of my business at least until I’m back 100%.

“It’s a new dawn, a new day
a new life for me
And I’m feeling good”

“It’s a new day!!”

So thanks, JHud!

#9 – All Things Bridal – Check ’em Out

by z.lynn

Planning a wedding is probably one of the few times where you will have to deal with various vendors to ensure that the event is a success. You may have to utilize a caterer, a venue, a seamstress, a wedding planner, a DJ, etc. Prevent potential frustrations by:

  • asking friends for referrals to reputable vendors
  • asking the vendor for referrals from previous clients
  • ask yourself – Are they late to your appointments? Do they return your calls when promised? Do they have a professional appearance? Could you see yourself befriending this person? (Yes OR No will be an appropriate response, depending on the nature of the relationship you foster with them)
  • check them out: BBB

If they are new in business, and you feel comfortable working with them, it is still be a good idea to:

  • ask if you can watch them work
  • observe how they treat other people
  • talk to their employees or other associates

A wedding can be a stressful time, help yourself eliminate some of that stress by carefully selecting your vendors.

Check them out, before you sign!

See ya next time!
