Mike & Marta’s Stunning TPC Sawgrass Wedding

2014 03 Wedding - Marta & Mike 11 TPC Sawgrass

After a week of cars, I thought we would switch it up a bit!  Bryn and had the wonderful pleasure of spending two days with Mike and Marta as they celebrated their wedding weekend in Ponte Vedra.  We covered the couple’s rehearsal celebration on the Friday before the wedding and then spent Saturday with the happy couple as they became husband and wife.  What made the event all the merrier is that we had the pleasure of meeting many of the folks a few years ago when we photographed the wedding of Marta’s sister, Kathy.  What a great day!

Congrats Mike and Marta!  As always, check out all our favorite photos below – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends and help us get the word out!

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.
