*welcome to the we are the mastersons blog*

hi! welcome to the WE ARE THE MASTERSONS photography blog. we are trish and brian... a husband and wife photography team living in dublin, ireland. what you have here is a never-ending mixtape of our life through photos: both professional work as well as more personal shots, mixed in with some rants, raves and various other randomness. hopefully this site will give you an idea of what we are about: so feel free to throw on the kettle, kick off your shoes and have a look around. if you happen to get lost, there's always the handy navigation bar at the top.

If you're looking for our online portfolios, you can find our wedding site here and our portrait site here.

what do you do when you plan an outdoor summer wedding and it does nothing but rain and rain and rain? the only thing you can - ignore it. jen and nick earned our lifelong respect for totally changing their ceremony as the rain started to fall. and how jen later abandoned using umbrellas altogether so that she could get close to some friendly horses. unfortunately, buster the wonderdog wasn't able to make it to the wedding, but he did text through a photograph of himself, fully decked out in tux and tails for the occasion. classy!

as part of our zen-like photographic mental stretching and search for great locations - as well as an excuse to get out+about in the summer air - this week we combine a visit to the Tom de Paor pumphouse in Clontarf and some pizza with a trip slightly down the road to older, less celebrated architecture...

a couple of weeks ago we got to hang out with liam whelan on the day that he made his confirmation. aspiring filmmaker, meticulous dresser and committed nephew. and yes, you do gotta love that tie.

yes! unique selling point, my friends - it looks like we're cornering the market in after-the-fact wedding shots! last time out was the kennedy 40th anniversary party. this time those crazy guys pauline and andy asked us to take some shots to mark their first anniversary. so in went the flask of tea, the picnic sandwiches and a couple of bags of taytos - and out came the sun and a pair or two of wellies. thank you, gods of photography+sunshine
