Last weekend, we again spent some time with the wonderful folks of Amelia Island. Our first shoot of the day was for the Amelia Farmer’s Market. To be honest, the weather wasn’t very ideal – it was cold and drizzly much of the morning – but that didn’t stop many of the die-hard vendors or shoppers from coming buy to shop for fresh produce, local delicacies and great gifts. The market has recently moved to the Amelia Island Plantation, where the ancient live oaks shade guests as they stroll along the winding lanes. As is often the case with small town events, everyone was super nice and it was so wonderful to see so many people catching up while they walked along the market, sipping their coffee and listening to the great live music.
Below are some of our favorite shots from the day – enjoy!
November seems to be Amelia Island month for Deremer Studios. We recently spent the afternoon in Dwotown Amelia Island, photographing the annual Petanque American Open. The sport, similar to bocce ball, revolves around two teams throwing hollow metals balls (boules) toward a small wooden ball (the piglet). A point is given for each ball that is closer to the piglet than the competitor’s closest ball. The first team to 13 points wins.
The event attracted teams from all over the United States and throughout the world – with teams traveling from Europe and even Madagascar to compete in this event. Below are some of our favorite shots from the day – enjoy!
