Courtney & Frank’s Classic Beach Club Wedding!

We had a great time shooting Courtney and Frank’s wedding this weekend – all the more so as our story with this family began many moons ago! Fresh out of college, I was hired by TNT Logistics (Now CEVA Logistics) to be their marketing and graphics guy for their North America operations.  That’s where I first met Courtney’s dad, Jeff.  Since leaving CEVA to run Deremer Studios full time back in 2007, we’ve stayed in touch and this summer, they asked us to photograph Courtney’s upcoming wedding.  The wedding itself was gorgeous – lots of wonderful details created by the wedding coordinator and the folks at Sawgrass Beach Club.  For me, the event was also a reunion of sorts – as I had the opportunity to connect with many folks from those old TNT days, including the event coordinator at the Sawgrass Beach Club – small world!   Congrats Courtney and Frank!  Check out all our favorite photos below!

Mr. Rogers Presents: How to Make a Tube – Featuring Hanson Pressure Pipe

When I was a kid, my very favorite part of Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood was the small segments that featured the making of anything from crayons to musical instruments.   To be completely honest, I still love those kind of shows.  There’s just something about seeing all the machines whirling and people working to create a final product that really appeals to me.

Well, this week I had the opportunity to experience this firsthand.  Hanson Pressure Pipe hired us to go out a capture the production of a new type of piping they have developed.  And let me tell you, pressure pipe is pretty cool stuff!  It all starts with a metal spiral core that is spun on this massive machine that takes up a whole building.  The photo above is of a pipe segment being cut on this machine.  These pipes can be made in all sizes (they’ve made pipes up to 194 inches in diameter at this facility), though the ones we worked with were a bit smaller.

Then, the pipe goes through a series of process by which the inside is coated with a layer of cement and spun (above) at an insane speed to ensure uniform coating.  From there it gets an exterior coat of wire and a second coating of cement – this time on the outside.  A few more steps, and walla, you have yourself a big ol’ pipe capable of handing hefty pressure loads.  From a roll of metal to a finished pipe takes about two days.  Of course, the whole process is much more complex than what I outlined, but it gives you the idea.  More detailed photos below!

Going for the Long Drive: 2012 Avis Invitational

This week, we had the unique honor of shooting the first annual Avis Invitational golf event, hosted at TPC Sawgrass.  This two day event designed to honor some of Avis’ top corporate clients provided a wonderful opportunity for the competitors to enjoy the beautiful Florida weather on one of the best golf courses in the world.

Golfing legends Steve Stricker and Mark Rolfing generously spent the day with the golfers; answering questions, giving pointers and participating in some friendly competition on the famous 17th hole.

The event was capped at the beautiful Ponte Vedra Inn and Club with a wonderful awards banquet.  Each guest was also given a framed print we had captured and printed onsite, using one of our awesome HiTi professional printing system.
