We are the Popes!


Many of you may know that we have been contemplating a name change/re-brand since we started our business as Gerald Pope Photography over four years ago. We really felt that the name needed to be updated to reflect the fact that Airika and I are a team. We always work together, we play off of each others strengths, and we would have never gotten to where we are today without each other. Our relationship is an important part of who we are and how we run our business, and this is fully reflected in our new name–The Popes!

Our logo/identity/brand is all thanks to the guys at Reddoor Creative. It was such a pleasure working through the whole process with them–they are amazing, and we can’t imagine where we’d be right now without them! Another huge thanks goes out to our letterpress printer extraordinaire, Zida. The technology she used to create our new business cards is over 500 years old,  and each one is truly a piece of art!

If you’re looking for photos we posted on our old blog, you can still access it here: www.geraldpope.blogspot.com. Also, don’t forget to let us know what you think of our new look!

It looks really fabulous, you guys! It definitely reflects who you are, and it'll be nice not to have to explain to everyone that "Gerald Pope Photography" is really "Gerald AND Airika Pope Photography"! :)

I love letterpress...almost as much as I love the mad photo skills you BOTH bring to the table. I think the rebrand is awesome and can't wait till our whateverth anniversary (or first child or something else major) when we get to work with the two of you all over again. Ahhh...letterpress.

Love it! My wife is 2nd shooting with me next month for the first time. She's been my best friend for 15 years and I am excited to see where this might take us. She has a different eye, and I am looking forward to seeing what that brings for us! Congratulations on your re-branding. It's something I hope we have to tackle in the next year or so!
