Part 2 in our blog series honoring the unique, inspiring and often incredible work of our clients.
Today, we wanted to take a few moments to brag on the goods folks of the Amelia Island CVB. As you can imagine, there have been few industries hit harder than the men and women supporting tourism and conventions – and these are two of the biggest economic drivers on Amelia Island. Yet despite the hardships, and against the odds, our friends at the CVB have always gone above and beyond to support the businesses and events that make Amelia Island so very special. Though their staff is small, the group has pulled off some amazing things over the years, and its been our great pleasure to be small part of the fun! The island regularly appears on the top of desirable travel destinations, both nationally and internationally, a true testament to the hard work of the CVB.

What’s a photographer to do when shoots are few and far between, with the whole world pushing one of the biggest pause buttons in history? In an effort to come alongside our wonderful clients, many of whom are in the same boat as we are, we’re kicking off this series to share some of our favorite memories and the often extraordinary work of our clients. So, who should we spotlight first? We’ve worked with so many great companies, but Southeastern Grocers (SEG) seems the perfect pick, given their work on the front lines of this pandemic – normal men and women elevated by this crisis to the rightful place of brave heroes.
A Firsthand Account of Amelia Island’s Historic Shrimping Industry
Over the past decade, we’ve had the great pleasure of capturing the beautiful and diverse stories of Amelia Island, FL for their Visitor’s Bureau. Many of those stories I’ll never forget, and this month’s adventure is definitely one of those memories that will linger for years to come.
As it is with any fishing story, the adventure began at daybreak as we gathered on the northern tip of Amelia Island to meet up with Captain Wilson and his historic wooden shrimp boat, Three Cees’s. Though the coast to both our north and south was largely clouded over, we were treated to a stunning sunrise over the marshy interior of the island.
