Project Everlasting | the bachelors

You may have heard me rave about this project several times before (here & here), but here we go again....




Project Everlasting is the collaborative efforts of two bachelors on a quest find out what makes a successful marriage. Armed with an RV, video crew, and a list of questions, they ventured across America interviewing couples married 40 years or longer. I cannot express how passionate about this project and their efforts I am. After reading their book and watching their video(s), I feel like I have learned so much from their journeys and interviews that would not only be beneficial in a marriage relationship (If I ever decide to embark on that adventure), but also in EVERY relationship I will have in life. The principals gleaned apply to each and every relational encounter you or I may have.
I encourage everyone to pick up a copy and get lost in the stories of marriage masters who have defied odds and become what is considered an anomaly in today's culture... Perhaps you will find yourself in these accounts of humanity and love.


So, today I have the pleasure of shooting Mat Boggs and Jason Miller. The Bachelors of Project Everlasting. They needed a few new promo shots and concepts images for some new projects they are working on.
We goofed off for three hours or so and their hilarious antics had me in stitches!! I thoroughly enjoyed myself. :)
Afterwards, Jason and I headed to this amazing restaurant in downtown Portland and topped the evening off with good conversation while exchanging dreams and passions. These gentlemen have people at the core of their hearts and want nothing more than to make an impact on the world. I am honored to have spent time with them

Without further adieu, here is some proof of the fun....


I call this the 'men in black' shot






Jason Miller




Mat Boggs




Check out Mat's beads... they were given to him by the Dalai Lama!




Mat and Jason will begin a new radio series called 'The Bachelor Pad: Secrets from the Man Cave.' It will be a call in radio show where men discuss all the things the 'know' or wish to understand about women. [That will definitely be entertaining!]
I pulled this from their blog...
I will TOTALLY be eavesdropping on this one! ;)

Here are a few shots with 'The Bachelor Pad' concept.
Haha, yes, those are my boots.







I think this was my favorite from the day...





But these next 2 are a close tie for second.






I love this image...





Thank you Gentlemen for touching lives and being difference makers! :)
