You guys know how much I love “celebrity girlfriends”! By celebrity girlfriends, I mean women who are dating/married to celebrities but are awesomely talented on their own accord. In the past, I’ve told you guys about PA native and blogger Nomi Leasure and today… it’s Jasmin Marsters! Prepare yourself, the fan girl is coming!
This is the time I wish I could give interviews because I’d have so many questions to ask Mrs. Marsters and there’d probably only be two regarding her marriage to Buffy The Vampire Slayer actor James Marsters. The first would be: How many times of day do you swoon over the new “Rest In Peace” cover, and the second: What was it like being in a relationship in two different countries? I mean, obviously it worked out! Not only are they married, but James has a song about her on his solo albums! Talk about swoon!
Awesome fact about this blog post: Most photos in it were taken by this awesome LA photographer Courtney McCullough (My love of fellow photographers wouldn’t let me go without stating that.) Check out her Instagram and website!
How I Found Out About her.
Well, obviously after binge watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer on Netflix, I thought to myself “I wonder if this guy is married!” referring to Spike (Or James Marsters, rather.). Who would’ve expected that eight forms of social media later, I’d be on the Instagram page of this gorgeous woman with talent out of this world. I was almost embarrassed by how impressed I was. She beat out all random Youtube singing videos with just six seconds of sound.
One thing led to another and I was liking her Facebook page vigorously wanting more of her impressive voice and her motivating posts. I mean, it literally happened that fast!
I Like.. No, Love About Jasmin Marsters.
Besides her voice and her modeling talent? She is ridiculously humble! She’s always talking about “practicing” and she wrote a whole “novel” about how she never thought she could get into modeling but she simply just has the look! I also can’t resist pointing out that like myself, she has a uniquely spelled version of the same name as me. (Another one of those interview questions: How many times a day do you get “Jasmine”.) What I also love about her… You think you swoon over James Marsters… she is one proud wife. She speaks so highly of him and tweets messages from him. It’s adorable! Literally, earth-shatteringly perfect.
What I Don’t Like About Jasmin.
There are two things.. Prepare yourselves because I’m about to get angry. (Not even serious about my anger in the slightest.)
One: Why the heck is there not an album out showcasing the beauty of this girl’s voice?! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve shown people like — “This is a unique voice!” I want an album, on my Iphone, from Itunes that I can buy three times. It doesn’t even have to feature anyone else. Just, accoustic, acapella goodness of her awesome.
Two:… Wait, there was a two? Sorry I was ridiculously caught up on one. OH YEAH. TWO! Why don’t I live in LA? I mean.. *ahem* Why doesn’t she live in Chicago?! I would love to photograph her! She’s fantastic and Courtney does an amazing job and I would love to help. She’s got this gorgeous face that you can just work into so many concepts (Listen to me. haha.), her look to me would go so well with the downtown scene and I just.. I can’t believe I can’t photograph her. It physically hurts!
As you can see, my list of dislikes pretty much are selfish and inexistent due to her immense amount of amazing!
Wait, Don’t Touch That Dial. One more thing… about Courtney.
It’s important! Just as amazing as Jasmin is… Courtney is not just a photographer but a model as well! They’re both actresses too! You know how I’m always telling you to build friendships with your fellow photographers and models? Do that! Be impressed! I certainly was. I found Courtney’s portfolio through Jasmin’s and I was like, “Again, why am I not in LA right now?” I have such a love for people who can be both in front and behind the camera and do very well at both! As you can see, Courtney has that completely under control! So now, thanks to Jasmin, I’ve become a fan of not one, but two models!
Alright, I’m out of here before I really start “fan girling” but!
Jasmin Marsters has so many avenues of social awesome for you to check out. There’s Facebook, there’s Instagram, Twitter and there’s YouTube! Don’t forget to acknowledge the lovely photography Courtney on Instagram and Facebook.
You can also subscribe to my website to see what I’m fan girling next! In the meantime, enjoy this Rest In Peace video that Jasmin posted of James. (If you’re a Buffy fan, expect to fall in love all over again.)
