Joe and Madison Greer are a photographer and fashion blogger couple living in New York City. Joe specializes in lifestyle and commercial photography, while Madison has a passion for all things fashion, lifestyle and travel.

Earlier this year, we sent Joe and Maddie on a trip to the United Kingdom, where they had the unique opportunity to explore the cities and seaport towns of London, Liverpool, and Newcastle in new shoes from our fall collection.

Scroll below to learn more about their travels, and about the many wondrous sights of the UK.

Photographer Joe Greer and his wife, fashion blogger Maddie Greer, make a perfect team as they travel around the globe for shoots. Here, Joe and Maddie capture photos beneath the Westminster Bridge with Big Ben standing tall behind them.

Traveling is such a huge part of our lives, so when we learned that we were going to be in the UK for three weeks we knew we had to make it count. Which was when we partnered with Sperry to show case their fall collection as we explored three cities across the UK: London, Liverpool, and Newcastle.

All three cities packed with their own bit of charm and uniqueness. London, obviously serving as an epicenter of European culture, business, and architectural beauty; Liverpool,  a quiet, yet wonderful port city and hub of music and art culture; and Newcastle, an enchanting little town with great food and beautiful bridges.

As a photographer and fashion blogger couple we love telling stories with our photos. There are so many stories to tell in the UK. So many things to see and do and experience.

From the beautiful scenery in the seaports and on every train ride, to the unique restaurants, and quaint local stores. Although we explored some areas like tourists, we often found ourselves putting away our maps and just exploring on our own, not afraid of getting lost – because getting lost meant we might stumble upon something extraordinary.

There was no one better to bring along with us on this trip than Sperry. With the new collection of wet-weather boots and suede sneakers and boat shoes, we had the perfect shoes for the weather we encountered, and the collection offered a clean mix of urban and nautical style. We took our Sperry gear everywhere with us and splashed through puddles, strolled down cobblestone walkways, and set out along seaside docks and ports. Having the right products with us certainly helped, considering we came during a particularly rainy week in Newcastle!

While exploring the seaports of the UK, Joe and Maddie traveled by ferry and train, which gave them an opportunity to see the cities and towns surrounding them from a new perspective.

This trip was one of the most memorable trips we have ever taken. We were able to truly experience the culture, adventure, and lifestyle of three completely different cities through the lens of a camera and through our own eyes. To be able to partner with Sperry and travel to a country that was so new to the both of us was a dream come true, and we hope that our story inspires others to set out on their own adventures in the future.

Prepared with puddle stomping shoes, Joe and Maddie took on rainy days on the cobblestone paths of Newcastle.
