A Comcast Soiree and Scooby Too!

2014 09 Corporate - Comcast Spotlight Soiree 12 - Scooby

You know how people talk about coming full circle?  Well this shoot was that sort of experience for me.  As I was looking up the address for our shoot with Comcast Spotlight, it seemed awfully familiar.   And it was.  You see, I am no stranger to 10751 Deerwood Park Blvd.  For seven years, I spent my weekdays fooling around (and occasionally working) as the marketing guy for CEVA Logistics – my cubicle on the third floor.  I made many good friends and even more fond memories there, and when I departed to run Deremer Studios, the parting was bittersweet.  Today, half of the third floor, where CEVA’s executive offices and board room once were, now belongs to Comcast, and  walking into this eerily familiar yet strikingly different space was  a real throwback.

The event itself was great fun.  From a cupcake workshop hosted by Sweet! By Holly, a photo op with the one and only Scooby Do, some crazy indoor drone flying, and a photo session with the guys from Duck Dynasty (in cardboard form) – all came together for a memorable party.  Catering was provided by our friends at Up Catering – and I can personally vouch for the tastiness of their stuffed mushrooms!

More Than Just a Red Carpet – Top Performers Honored at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island

2014 09 Corporate - Conference FAM 15 - Ritz-Carlton Amelia Isla

We recently had the pleasure of working with another great group visiting the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island on a fanciful and noteworthy familiarization trip.   You’ve heard the phrase, “rolling out the red carpet” – well, as illustrated above, the folks at the Ritz-Carlton didn’t settle for just a red carpet – emblazoning this entire ballroom with scarlet tones to honor this intimate gathering of top performers.  As always, we captured our fair share of food pics along the way, and with this group, we offered a special service – quick-turn-around editing, design and printing of a special custom thank you print for the guests.  And on top of that, thanks to some creative Photoshoppery (that’s a word, right?), we even created a special happy birthday print by adding a banner and text to a group photo (their reaction below).   Thanks as always to the resort, and a special thanks to Dan Leslie from Appleseed Photography for partnering with us to provide top-level service at the event!

For a guy that loves food (too much), August has been pretty spectacular.  We had the pleasure of photographing the Salt Cooking School, The Great Southern Tailgate Cookoff, and this fun little shoot with the Omni Amelia Island Plantation.  Executive Chef Daven Wardynski prepared a stunning rendition of the classic southern staple, shrimp and grits.  Be sure to take a look at our slideshow to see this great dish come together!

Bees, Braising and Boats – Memorable Moments visits the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island

2014 08 Corporate - Ritz-Carlton FAM Trip 16 - Salt Cooking Scho

Last week we had the pleasure of working with our friends from the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island on a wonderful familiarization trip with Memorable Meetings for some of the country’s top corporate event planners.  We had great fun spending time with this group of folks – from their ocean-side honey-inspired breakfast featuring the resort’s own honey bees, to an energetic and informative cooking school hosted by Chef Rick (above) in the AAA Five Diamond  restaurant, Salt.  The day was capped with dinner on the yacht Amazing Grace at Safe Harbor Boys Home – complete with a stunning sunset and entertainment by the very talented Paul Gertner.

Automotive Lifestyle Shoot with the BMW Resort Driving Tour

2014 05 Automotive - BMW Resort Driving Tour 08 Ritz Amelia Isla

Again this year we had the pleasure of photographing an automotive lifestyle shoot for the BMW Resort Driving Tour.  This year we took out a 2014 BMW 550i and 640i Convertible.  On our photographic adventure, we stopped at some of our favorite spots for photos, went exploring, found a peacock, went into downtown Fernandina, and spilled ice cream on ourselves… okay, so technically, I spilled the ice cream.  Then there was that whole bit about accidentally taking the keys home with me – but we won’t talk about that.  Want your own chance behind the wheel?  The BMW Resort Driving Tour travels to a variety of luxury resorts each year – offering registered guests the chance to take out a new BMW for several hours of fun on the roads.

A Wild Trip to White Oak with Big Break Florida

2013 10 Event - Big Break Florida 12 White Oak Tour - Cheetah

Several months ago, we had the special pleasure of spending some time with a few of the talented golfers from the Golf Channel’s hit TV show, Big Break.  Of course, this was during filming of the latest series, Big Break Florida, so we were asked to delay posting photos until the show was well under way – and so it is!  White Oak is always such a treat to visit, and this trip was no exception – giving the contestants a sampling of nearly all White Oak has to offer – from the private golf course and bowling alley, to the shotgun course and eclectic art collections.  As is often the case with a White Oak tour, the stops included opportunities to view a wide variety of protected and endangered species and a few hands-on interactions with cheetah, giraffe and several species of rhino.  Over the past several years, we’ve shot at White Oak the better part of a dozen times, yet the experience is one I always look forward to and cherish.  Best of all, the Conservation Center now does regular events open to the public – be sure to check out their Facebook page to stay informed!
