Halloween Zumba YMCA Minneapolis ShotOniPhoneGood day from EPHQ and have I got a totally fun project to share with you!

As you’ve been sharing with me, Esquire Photography has been doing some amazing projects and photo shoots over the past year.  From taking EPHQ on the road so much more to doing a LOT more filmmaking and commercial work that’s entirely “#ShotOniPhone”.

There’s the commercial I created, directed, edited, filmed & photographed for TEK Products ENTIRELY on my iPhone 6 Plus (aka: #shotoniphone) and my Beastgrip Pro (LOOK).

Then there’s the movie; “The Perfect Life” filmed entirely on my iPhone 6 Plus in Minneapolis AND with my Nokia 808 Pureview in Trier, Germany featuring the song: “The Perfect Life” by one of my all-time favourite artists: Moby (LOOK).

AND!  The promo video I did for my brother: Tony for him racing in The Polar Run helping raise more than $20,000 for the Ronald McDonald House (LOOK).

Well… now I have something really fun to share with you!

Not too long ago, I donated my time for a Zumba fundraiser at Substance Church in Minneapolis to help raise money for a family in need.  One of the donations I gave to the church was a portrait photo shoot which was scooped up by a totally enthusiastic Zumba athlete: Elaine Francis.

Shortly after the event Elaine reached out to me and asked if she could share the gift with her Zumba class for a Halloween event she was hosting at the Emma B. Howe YMCA in Minneapolis.  That was totally cool with me and with a little planning – we knew this would be a blast.  Especially since it was ALSO a costume Zumba class too!  WHEW HEW!

From ghosts, to goblins, vampires, skeletons, and insomnia – Elaine’s Zumba event at the YMCA was a blast.  They had a Halloween-inspired class, but it was when they decided to have a flash mob downstairs getting the YMCA staff and other guests involved in the fun!

Elaine also had a fun grab-bag for everyone with various costumes and we did a crazy group photo shoot in the fitness room.  Which did get a little interesting because I was standing in front of someone on a machine – in my kilt! LOL!

Los Angeles Wedding Photographer ShotOniPhone PhotographyHello from Esquire Photography HQ and have I got a totally fun and romantic wedding to share with you.

But first, I’ve got to say: has the journey we’re sharing in 2016 amazing or what!?!  We have taken Esquire Photography practically everywhere teaching, photographing & filming weddings, commercials and a ton more.

From the incredible destination wedding ENTIRELY filmed AND “#shotoniphone” simultaneously for Vickie and Travis, to the first of three commercials “#shotoniphone” for TEK Products in Minneapolis (LINK) and the recent video with Motorwerks MINI Cooper (LINK) – it’s been a wild ride AND the year is not over yet (hint-hint – more awesomeness coming soon!)

Now I have something VERY special to share with you.

You may remember the beautiful celebrity wedding I had the honour of photographing for Shelby & Matt at Rancho Las Lomas which was featured on WeTV‘s “My Fair Wedding” with David Tutera.

Well… as fate would have it, Brittney & David are friends with Shelby & Matt and when they got engaged, yours truly received a phone call!  Can I say WHEW HEW!

ALSO!  What’s really great is Brittney’s Grandparents served in the Navy.  Her Grandfather is a retired WWII Marine and her Grandmother was a Navy Wave.  So their wedding day had basically an infinite amount of inspiration and specialness to me.  To be able to work with Brittney & David, who are friends with Shelby & Matt was like a reunion for me, and to be able to give back to a family who served & sacrificed for me with my Military Discount Program.

Plus!  Duran Rex and I were able to help Brittney & David plan their wedding with some tips & tricks I share on the program: “How To Make The Most Out Of Your Wedding Day.”

I could go on & on, gushing over their wedding day, but the age-old saying of “a picture is worth a thousand words” is true for what could be a universe of words in not one, not two, but THREE films from Brittney & David’s hillside Los Angeles wedding.

The films are:

  1. Wedding day round up with a special message from Brittney & David
  2. Some behind the scenes fun I #shotoniphone
  3. Their ENTIRE wedding ceremony #shotoniphone

Before you scroll down to enjoy their gorgeous wedding day and would like to chat with me about your upcoming wedding or event, feel free to contact me anytime day or night.  I’m available practically 24/7 via TwitterFacebookGoogle+, the form on my contact page, or the old fashioned phone as well at 888.ESQ.PHTO (888.377.7486) or 562.225.5915.

The last time a wedding was put together of this magnitude was Shelby & Matt’s celebrity wedding at Rancho Las Lomas which was featured on WeTV‘s “My Fair Wedding” with David Tutera.

I could continue to write about the fun we had and the romantic signature portraits we did with their horses, but the video I’ve put together shows so much more than a few words I could jot down.

Motorwerks MINI Cooper ShotOniPhone Minneapolis Minnesota PhotographerHelloooooooooo from EPHQ and have I got something totally MEGA to share with you filmed in Minneapolis.

As you know – I’m a HUGE fan of MINI Coopers and the lifestyle brand image they represent.  Us “MINIacs” know there’s nothing quite like a MINI.  They’re fun, fuel-efficient and backed by one of the industry’s best maintenance and warranty program (I know!).

Anyone that owns a MINI knows what makes those automobiles awesome are the engineers and design teams who create them.  BUT!  What makes MINI Coopers awesome to own over the years are the teams who keep them running perfectly and safe on the road.

Which brings me to what I’m excited to share with you!  Located west of Minneapolis off the highway on Lousiana is the brand new Motorwerks MINI.  Motorwerks MINI has a totally MEGA selection of new and used MINIs available now at their Twin Cities MINI dealership.  AND freakin awesome customer service!

From the parts department to the uber-awesome Michelle Schall and her team in the service department, my experience has been top shelf all the way.  In fact, it has been so awesome, I recently recorded a video testimonial with Michelle.

But…  what happened that day at Motorwerks MINI was very unexpected.  I filmed and photographed wayyyyyyyyyyy more footage than I thought.  There was so much #ShotOniPhone that I created a promo video for Motowerks MINI.

Before you scroll down to check out the totally MEGA video ENTIRELY #ShotOniPhone and you want to chat about how you would like to create a great video – contact me anytime on TwitterFacebookGoogle+, the form on my contact page, the old fashioned phone at: 888.ESQ.PHTO (888.377.7486) or direct at: 562.225.5915.

Make sure to choose 1080 HD for the video so you can “Motor On!” properly!

And remember…

Sharing is Sexy like a John Cooper Works MINI Cooper!

to show others around the world how much fun they can have owning a MINI!

PadAndQuill iMore FacebookLive Facebook Livestream Minneapolis Minnesota Photographer

Hello from EPHQ and have I got a totally MEGA experience to share with you!

Recently at 1:30 a.m. – after a 15 hour editing day, I saw a story in the iMore app about a drawing for the “Ultimate Road Trip Giveaway” with iMore and Pad & Quill.

So on a whim, I thought how awesome it would be to win so many awesome luxury items from one of the best, most reputable leather craftsmen in the world. But after the next day, it hadn’t crossed my mind until…

An email popped into my inbox from Dawn at Pad & Quill telling me I won “A Major Award!” (As in the incredible movie: “A Christmas Story”).

I read the email and thought: “No WAY!” and then the critical mind kicked in and I went to Pad & Quill’s website to confirm this wasn’t a scam.  The next email I received confirmed it was legit and after I gave it some thought, I wanted to give back to Pad & Quill and proposed recording the experience with them.  Dawn said she would check with Brian (aka: “Mr. PQ”) to see if he’d be cool with it and when we could coordinate it.

Fast forward to the morning of our meeting, and I had a little something extra up my sleeve and wanted to use my new Mevo by Livestream camera to Livestream the experience LIVE on Facebook.

Unfortunately, we ran into some tech hiccups connecting the device to the net.  Which was odd as I had used it earlier that morning – but that didn’t stop us.  We still used the Mevo to record our experience and now I’m honoured to share it with you!

Before you scroll down to check out the totally MEGA video we filmed on Mevo By Livestream, be sure to download the iMore app to keep up on the latest & greatest advancements in the iDevice world.

ALSO!  Check out Pad & Quill‘s totally incredible products they have, you will love their commitment to quality, craftsmanship and of course – their products.

PS, Be sure to select 1080 HD for the video so you can enjoy all the awesomeness!
