Close Encounters of The Blue Kind

Close Encounters of The Blue Kind I was hired yet again by Quinn Group Advertising and Marketing and the people at Talk Trash Spokane to star in two more local commercials!! I’ll post the second one later, but it won’t go live for another couple of weeks so I’ll wait on it for now. I know some people have been asking to see this one in particular, so here it is! Bonnie Quinn-Clausen (owner of Quinn Group) is a big fan of the Steven Spielberg film, Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Unfortunately, this reference only makes sense to a small percentage of the people who actually see the commercial (as it came...

Kyle & Danielle’s Engagement Session – July 13, 2012

Kyle & Danielle’s Engagement Session – July 13, 2012 I had such a blast shooting this engagement session, and Kyle and Danielle are SUCH naturals in front of the camera! Being a huge Volkswagen fan, I was in love with this 1970 Karmann Ghia, and riding shotgun was a blast (Thanks, Dan!!). The wedding is going to be spectacular, and I can’t wait to show photos! So the following story comes directly from Danielle. She worded it so fantastically that I didn’t want to change a word. From Danielle (with a little help from Kyle): “Kyle and I first met in September of 2006 on Whidbey Island, where the Western Washington University...

Chris & Andrea’s Engagement Session – April 20, 2012

Chris & Andrea’s Engagement Session – April 20, 2012 “Here is a little bit about Chris and I… It’s simple and cliché’ but here goes. I was bartending at Applebee’s. Chris’ best friend would come into my store every single Sunday and sit at my bar. He became one of my regulars. We would chat and eventually started hanging out. On St. Patricks’ Day in 2008, he and some friends came in with Chris. I wasn’t really interested because he was with another girl at the time, and although he seemed nice, he didn’t spark my interest much. One night in July I went over to a friend’s house and Chris happened to be there....

Tony & Jessica – Engagement & Wedding – February 25, 2012

Tony & Jessica – Engagement & Wedding – February 25, 2012 Tony & Jess both grew up in Germany, but it wasn’t until they’d moved to Cheney, WA that they met for the first time. On May 24th, 1998, while decorating the music room for their band director’s birthday at Cheney Middle School, their eyes first met. From then on, they were the best of friends, and even had quite a few classes together. For Mol Day in their high school chemistry class, they both dressed up as moles. In band, they sat next to each other; Tony playing the tenor saxophone and Jessica- the bassoon.  They even went to school dances together.  The two...

Jake & Sundi’s ‘At Home’ Family Session – March 24, 2012

Jake & Sundi’s ‘At Home’ Family Session – March 24, 2012 A couple weeks ago, my wife and I had the awesome opportunity to spend the better part of a week in the Phoenix, AZ area. While there, we decided to take a trip up to Payson (about an hour north) to visit our good friends Jake & Sundi, and their daughters, Ava & Vera. Jake is one of the coolest and funniest guys I know. Fortunately, their entire family is pretty dang photogenic. Their two girls, Ava (3) and Vera (1) were some of the most precious little girls ever. We spent an hour doing family photos around their house, starting with a tea party. Taking advantage of the...
