Liz and Paul - Engagement

We had the pleasure of photographing my brother Paul and soon to be sister-in-law, Liz in Florida. We flew to Marco Island, where my parents stay during the wintertime and met up with Paul, Liz and her parents. We began the shoot by taking them to a small fishing community called Goodland. We photographed them at a local outdoor bar with a lot of 'charm', called Stan's. To give you a little understanding of the character of this location, here is a link to their yearly Goodland Mullet Festival... check it out! The next day, we rented a boat and cruised around the islands, stopping along the way and taking portraits. What a blast! This is one of my favorite things to do in Florida... Being on the water is so relaxing. We ended the day on the beach at sunset, something that Liz really wanted for their engagement session. It couldn't have been a more georgous sunset. It was a calm and beautiful setting. This was also a great opportunity for Laura and I to photograph together. We worked really well together, as expected, but we had way more fun than we anticipated. Special thanks to my parents for putting us up and putting up with us, Liz's parents for driving all the way down from Pensacola, and to Liz and Paul for the opportunity to photograph their engagement. We can't wait for the wedding!

Here are a few more images from a previous post.

Florida Vacation

I am very thankful that photographing Liz and Paul's engagement allowed Laura and I to take the kids and have an extended stay in Florida. We stayed with my mom and dad in Marco Island where they have a condo right on the ocean... We took walks on the beach, collected shells and sea creatures, swam in the ocean and pool with 'nana and papa' and even rented a boat for a day of adventure. We love visiting Florida, especially when my parents are there. Thank you to my mom and dad for taking us in and showing us such a great time! We love you!

Here are a few images from our trip:

Ireland Album Has Arrived!

We were greeted this morning by our smiling UPS driver delivering Catriona and Iain's wedding album. We were more than thrilled opening the package and seeing the results of our many hours of production. Leather Craftsmen, once again, did not let us down. Special thanks to Laura at Forget Me Not Design for all of her hard work!

Another Side of GB Photographers

As many of you know, we have a few different branches of GB Photographers. One of the many responsibilities that we do on an almost daily basis is location scouting. We find beautiful and unique locations for the commercial, editorial and advertising still photography markets. Whether it is a coastal curvy road for BMW, or a bright spacious home for Pottery Barn or an upscale law office for HP, we will find whatever our clients need. We have been scouting locations for about 12 years and we continually use these skills whenever we are on a scouting, wedding or advertising project.

If you have the time, take a look at our Birdman Inc, location scouting website to get a better understanding of what scouting is all about! Also if you have a location that you think would make a great backdrop for a photo shoot, let us know!

Last week, we were hired by Levi's to find ranches with beautiful vistas, great textures and interiors with character. That same week we were called by the Almond Board of California to scout beautiful, flowering almond orchards...

Matt headed to the ranches, while Garrett captured the almond orchards. We had dramatic skies and perfect weather for our scouting days... Here are some of the results:
