North Island Credit Union: Capturing the San Diego lifestyle

4 days. 12 locations. As we reminisce on the fun we had in 2014, there's no forgetting the shoot that had us running all over sunny San Diego, showing off the greatness that is our beautiful city. We happily jumped into this collaboration with Fresh Form Interactive (the brilliant minds of Ali Palmer & Seth Gravette) and reunited with an old friend & Creative Director, Tracy Meiners.


Our goal: to create a beautiful photo library for use by North Island Credit Union (NICU).  With stops at places like Hodad's, OB Dog Beach, Mission Trails - each day brought it's own adventure....

Day 1: Undoubtedly, one of the greatest things about San Diego are our micro-breweries and killer food. Our gracious and wonderful hosts  Societe Brewing Co. & Hodad's in OB made our first day a real treat -

Day 2: Carlton Oaks Golf Course showed us some real VIP treatment, as we zipped around in their golf carts from hole to hole. We also ventured to Mission Trails and Morley Park - with a few stops in between.

Day 3: Shop til’ you drop!  A cute couple contemplated their first home and Tallgrass was there to capture that significant moment. The rest of the day was spent at the lovely boutiques in La Jolla and the North Park Farmer's Market.

Day 4: When one of our locations fell through, we were saved and treated by our friends from Pappalecco, in Little Italy.  Pappalecco not only welcomed us with open arms but fed us like family. The rest of the day was filled with what San Diego is known for best - sunny, sandy, San Diego beaches.

And of course, we stopped by North Island Credit Union to grab the brand shots.

This was a blast of a shoot - we hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them!
