MERCHANT MONDAY:  

DJ SCOTT FIJOLEK | WASHINGTON STATE

Welcome to the second edition of Laura Kesler Photography's "Monday Merchant" blog post series!  In this series, I highlight various wedding professionals and other businesses - ones I have personally gotten to know, and whose services and products I believe may be useful to the clients that I serve.

Now, with no further adieu - here is today's Merchant Monday featured wedding professional!

Today's featured business is DJ Scott Fijolek.  Scott and his wife Jina are a husband-and-wife DJ and entertainment team that provides fun, dynamic, professional, and high-quality wedding and event DJ services throughout the greater Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, and Kitsap County, Washington area.  As such, they provide music, entertainment, and TV-style trivia game shows at weddings, corporate and military events, school dances, holiday parties, and similar types of occasions.  

Scott has DJ'd over 1200 weddings, and is typically booked anywhere from six months to two-and-a-half years in advance.

I first met Scott and Jina at the 2018 South Sound Wedding Show in Lacey, Washington.  Their booth was next to mine, and over the course of many hours that day, I had a chance to see them interacting with couples and with other wedding professionals.  I was impressed by their professionalism and how thoughtful they were - not only with regard to the show attendees, but also with regard to their fellow vendors. 

In the weeks after the show, I got to know DJ Scott better, and I was recently given permission by Scott and Jina to watch and document how they go about doing a typical client consultation.  I am sharing images from that visit in today's blog post.  

Going back to the wedding show for a moment - I noticed DJ Scott's availability calendar posted at his booth.  If you are considering hiring Scott and Jina, consider moving quickly - they seem book up fast, and well into the year ahead.

I also noticed how much care they put into getting to know the couples who they may be working with.  Through initial conversations, in-person consultations, and questionnaires, Scott and Jina put a lot of effort into really understanding what their clients are looking for and in creating a customized bundle of services that will not only meet but that will exceed their expectations.

Scott and Jina also believe in supporting causes that help serve the local communities in which they work.  Last month, for example, they served as the DJ for Silverdale, Washington's Night to Shine.  This special evening was part of a larger, national prom event for those with special needs, and was sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.  Scott has also served as a DJ at a 24-hour American Cancer Society "Relay for Life" event as well.

Their consultation process seems professional and relaxed.  Scott and Jina keep it moving quickly and smoothly, and use a fun interactive couple's questionnaire activity (for wedding clients, anyway) which serves as an ice breaker and helps them get a good idea of their clients' personalities (an important thing for DJs to know, I would think!).  

DJ Scott has earned numerous awards and accolades, including having been named as one of the top DJs in the nation, out of a field of over 3000 competitors - and in the relatively short time I have known Scott and Jina, I can already see why.  They strike me as being very caring, professional, organized, and serious about creating a fun and fantastic DJ experience for the clients they serve. Scott has has over 25 years of experience in the DJ business, and it shows.  Scott and Jina also offer and manage several private, local Facebook communities that are very active, vibrant, and filled with constant shared ideas and tips for wedding and event clients as well.

I asked Scott to sum up his business in five words, which turned out to be: creative, entertaining, interactive, unique, and fun (he also gave me a sixth word - "more"!).

Despite their high level of success, Scott and Jina are not resting on their laurels, and continue to push, stretch, excel and grow in their journeys as DJ and entertainment professionals through things like added improv skills.  

If you are looking for a DJ, master of ceremony/emcee, and/or entertainer for your wedding, corporate or business event, family celebration or other special occasion, consider DJ Scott.  Scott and Jina serve Kitsnap, Olympia, Seattle, and Tacoma, and surrounding areas, and as noted above, seem to book quickly and well in advance.  They offer different package options for a variety of budgets, and pride themselves on providing transparent and fair prices.  Lighting is included in their packages, and they offer add-on photo booth services as well.  Initial consultations are provided at no charge.
