Custom Photo Images / Photo Lab Boca Raton
Our growth as a business is a result of an evolution beginning with world renowned, panoramic photographer, Peter Lorber printing his super sized fine art prints in a self-built warehouse darkroom.
Encouraged by fellow photographers disappointed with the printing quality of local labs and awed by the beauty of Peter’s prints, Peter along with his wife Addie, a teacher at the time, decided to open Custom Photo Images, a professional photo lab in Boca Raton in September 1991.
Soon after opening photographer, printer, and designer, Courtenay Gilbert joined the team. Becoming Peter’s creative partner.
And then there was more, custom framing! With Courtenay's keen eye for design and our expert framers, we provide our clients the perfect custom frame for their specific needs and budget. Ask about our special pricing for artists and designers.
Over the years Custom Photo Images has thrived by continuing to evolve. What started as a darkroom and film processing operation has become a full service digital lab, photography studio, boutique camera shop, and in-house custom framing.
Together, Peter, Addie, and Courtenay work as a tight-knit group seeking to provide customers with beautiful images, the highest quality products and professional service.

Master of Creativity
While Courtenay Gilbert has been at Custom Photo and Framing for thirty years, her career as a photographer began at the age of ten when she first stepped foot in a darkroom. Since then she graduated from the School of Visual Arts with a concentration in fashion and fine art photography. After honing her photography and makeup artist skills in New York City, she packed her camera and moved to South Florida in 1991.
Individually and in partnership with Peter Lorber, her fine art photography has been published, sold and exhibited across the world. Adapting from her youthful darkroom days, Courtenay has become a photoshop and printing expert. With her unparalleled creative vision and passion for innovation, Courtenay has established herself as an ambitious artist and will continue to inspire all for years to come.
