2013 06 Engagement Zac & Peili 03

We’ve got one more post from the weekend!  on Saturday night, Zac and Peili had a great party to celebrate their engagement, and asked us to come out and document the evening.  Though an intimate gathering, the location was decked out with all sorts of decorations and treats to help the couple celebrate.  The evening also included a round of “The Almost Newlywed Game” which was good for more than a few laughs.

Congrats Peili & Zac!  As always, check out all our favorite photos below!

Amelia Island + Ritz-Carlton + BMWs = FUN!

2013 06 Automotive Ritz BMW Resort Tour 13

Just last night, we had the pleasure of spending our first non-work night at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, and boy was it awesome!  As always, the staff at the resort was so kind, generous and helpful.  For a car guy like myself, the added bonus of being able to briefly enjoy two great BMWs was icing on the cake!  After a lazy afternoon around the resort, we took the Z4 (above) out and about in Fernandina for a great dinner at Timoti’s (food pictured below).   I tried the blackened fish and shrimp and Bryn gave the fish tacos a go.  We highly recommend a visit!

After a wonderfully bacon-filled breakfast at the Ritz-Carlton’s Cafe 4750, we were energized for a quick drive in BMW’s new 650 Gran Coupe.  And so, we set off down A1A, headed toward Jacksonville, turned around, and enjoyed the panoramic views of Florida’s scenic marshland.  From there, we returned to the resort, just in time for a quick visit to the Salt store, where we picked up a few momento’s to remember the weekend!

While the visit was quick, and the cars even quicker, it was a really wonderful getaway.  Thanks again to all our Ritz friends who make the resort, and our stay, so wonderful!  As always, feel free to download any or all of the images for use as desktop wallpaper!  Enjoy!

Kelli & Geoff’s Royal Queen’s Harbor Wedding

2013 06 Wedding Kelli & Geoff 16

This past weekend, Bryn had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Kelli and Geoff.  Back in 2012, we had a great time with the couple’s engagement session at the Cummer Museum.  The fun continued with the wedding day, with great themes and elements that accentuated their special day.  As you can see from the photos, everyone had s great time!  One other little note – take a look at their awesome cake – it was made by one of Bryn’s friends from her childhood, who’s recently opened up a wonderful bakery and cafe.  If you’re ever in the Beach & San Pablo area of Jacksonville, be sure to check them out – Bitter Sweet Bakery & Eatery.

Congrats Kelli & Geoff!  As always, check out all our favorite photos below!

Dreambuilder’s Modern Take on the Classic Farmhouse

2013 04 Architecture Dreambuilder 5208 Commissioner 19

Next up on our Catch-up Cavalcade is this gorgeous home from Dreambuilder Custom Homes.  This modern take on the quintessentially American farmhouse takes elements of the traditional style and merges it with a modern flair.  This was also the second house where we used our new elevated photography capabilities to capture the house from a variety of angles (such as the one above).

The modern farmhouse theme was carried indoors, where details like the farmhouse apron sink (above) captured that classic look. As with all Dreambuilder homes, this house came with all sorts of extras – from elegant storage solutions to little details that make a world of difference.  As always, check out some of our favorite shots from this shoot below.

Celebrating the Heavy Haulers with Western Star

2013 04 Corporate Western Star 08

After a week of catching up on wedding photography, it’s now time to spend the same effort on our commercial, architectural and fine art photography.  And so… Once upon a time… the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island was the host to a great group from Western Star.  The company manufacturers and sells a variety of big rigs that are known for their toughness and durability.  While in Amelia, the group celebrated the accomplishments of their top dealers while enjoying the amenities and attractions of award-winning island.

Below are some of our favorite shots from the shoot – enjoy!

Fine Art Follies – Thanksgiving in Appalachia

2013 06 Fine Art Virginia Thanksgiving 01

If you were wondering just how behind we have become, this post, consisting of photos from a fine art shoot in November, should prove evidence enough!  It was the week after this shoot that we discovered Bryn had breast cancer – and it has been a solid 6 months of business since then.  Thankfully, Bryn’s prognosis is good and we were able to handle a couple large surges in business even with Bryn going through chemo.  The months have been hard but fruitful – a blessing of sorts that we would never have asked for, but are thankful to have experienced.

2013 06 Fine Art Virginia Thanksgiving 11

But I digress.  A bit about the photos: We went up to Abingdon, Virgina just before Thanksgiving to spend some time with family.  As always, I take the opportunity of a trip to explore and shoot some fine art photography.  This time, I focused on the old and dilapidated remains or homes and barns in hill country around Abingdon.  One house that especially struck me was this once grand home, with full porch and substantial size, yet abandoned and falling in.  It makes you wonder why a home is just left and abandoned.  And this was just one of many homes along a short stretch of hilly back road suffering the same fate.  Later on, we took a trip to Bristol Speedway to drive the track and enjoy their massive Christmas light display.  Check out all our favorites from the trip below!
