Brimming with nostalgia

Goorin Bros. Summer 2020 Campaign.

Shot just before we all knew we were going into the COVID SIP. Already now almost three months later, I can honestly say how much I miss creating content without necessary limitations and restrictions of COVID. I truly miss the creative team (shoutouts to Glenn, Keith, John Ross, and Nicole) at Goorin Bros. and the amazing times inside and outside of the Goorin photo studio. Shooting and creating content for all the Goorin Bros. marketing campaigns for the past two years has been such a memorable experience.

We had a wonderful time shooting with Idlewild Winery and owner, Sam Bilbro, recently. Bilbro was named Top 40 Under 40 Tastemakers of 2017 and specializes in making hard-to-find, Piedmontese-style wines like Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Cortese, Arneis and Barbera.

The bottles are so beautifully designed and taste even more amazing.

“Idlewild has a relatively concise aim within a broad context: to produce wines of exceptional balance and beauty. It is a journey to pursue Italy’s Piedmont in the elevated hills of Mendocino County, and to find the sides of these varieties that are intriguing, delicious, and haunting.

Each wine is unique and treated as such, though the common thread is balancing depth and seriousness with vibrancy and joy. Emphasis is on the vineyard followed by minimalist winemaking techniques. While not dogmatic in practice, an honest and sustainable approach is fundamental in making wines of purity.”

the art of tea

Most people have their cup or four of coffee a day, and we have our tea to give us our sweet smiles 🙂

We had the wonderful opportunity to work with Thao Tea Company on their brand launch by doing some lifestyle and product photos. The branding, packaging and identity was designed by one of our talented wedding clients, Thuy, who was so sweet to refer us. Much love out to her, the lovely ladies at Thao Tea and to tea.

holiday goodies

With the holidays fast approaching, we were a little inspired for our holiday goodie list when we stopped by Curator on Church Street in San Francisco for some photos for  Nudgit.

Pictured above is some of Dram‘s artisan bitters. Their “Hair of the Dog” caught our eye because if you don’t know already, it’s a colloquial expression referred to alcohol that is consumed with the aim of lessening the effects of a hangover. Clever right?

d2Saipua is based out of Brooklyn, NYC. Not only do they make wonderful aromatic soaps, but they’ve also got a talented flower team to style flowers for all occasions.
