Mastin Studio

I have one of those out of sight, out of mind things happening. I completely failed to mention our photo session with Mastin Studio a few months back. We were met by Kirk Mastin and his wife Robin (who happens to have a great food blog, A Chow Life) to have pictures taken at Volunteer (oops) Discovery Park in Seattle. The day was was rainy and did bad things to my hair, Scott forgot to bring his suit jacket, I struggle to act natural in front of a camera, and despite all that it was a lot of fun. Kirk and Robin are charming and made us feel completely at ease. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer in the Pacific Northwest I can recommend them.

(The heat is hitting us here and we’re having one of those rare 90-degree days so looking at these photos is nearly giving me nostalgia for cooler temperatures. Nearly.)

    Lovely!! Tell us about those amazing boots!!!!

    You guys look adorable. I think the lack of a suitcoat makes Scott look more ‘English gentleman’-ly, and you are giving me boot envy.

    These are terrific photos! I feel like mine were a little too forced, but I’m notably stilted in front of the camera. My friends make it a game to take pictures of me when I’m not paying attention.

    Wow. I love the photos!! I love the effect of the first photo, and I love being able to see the details of your awesome outfits in the 2nd photo.

    Heather – I’m afraid the story about the boots is simply: they are from Old Navy.

    Thanks so much for mentioning me Megan!

    I had a wonderful time photographing you both and the day was so much fun.

    You were both so easy to work with and the creative ideas we came up with turned out great.

    I’m afraid robin won’t be joining me on many shoots this Summer as we are pregnant for the first time. Which is awesome for many reasons; one of which is that I’ll have another excellent photo assistant in about 16 years :) jk.

    Thanks again,

    These are awesome! Would love to see more!

    You both look so cute! – I love the way the umbrella is exposed in the first shot.

    Am thinking of getting some family portraits done, so will add the Mastins to the list.

    These are both great photos. The top one especially seems so happy and hopeful!

    Megan, you look so pretty in the photos! And you both look so happy. Cheers to you both.
