Calendar Time – November HD Desktop Wallpaper!

2013 11 November - Peggys Cove Sunrise Lighthouse Nova Scotia

Can you believe November is just around the corner?  I just did!  So, I’ve put together a few fine art shots – from our back yard to the Great North!  Above is from a rather chilly autumn sunrise shoot at Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse, in Nova Scotia, Canada.  We’ve also got another autumn shot from Nova Scotia, as well as a stunning Jacksonville Sunset and a fun close-up of a gingerbread house to give you just a taste of the holidays!  Lastly, I’ve given you one of my favorite shots from the early morning of the 2013 Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance. It’s a great example of the race-dominating Ford GT40 Mark II.  If you want more automotive-themed desktop wallpaper, be sure to check out our Automotive section!

Beach-side Olympians at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island

2013 10 Event SuperDimension 04 Amelia Island

I’ve got one more post for you today – this time a fun (and competitive) corporate event hosted at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.  This energetic group, SuperDimension, spent much of last week enjoying the cool fall weather along the Atlantic coast – including an awesome afternoon of fun-filled challenges on the beach.  From an obstacle course and relay race, to memory games and a water balloon contest (above), this was a full-body experience.  The afternoon was capped with a team tug of war which the group absolutely loved!

2013 10 Event SuperDimension 14 Amelia Island

A few nights later, the group had their awards dinner – and to be honest, parts of it were absolutely hilarious (intentionally) – with awards for such things as best celebrity lookalike and “you should have known better”.  Of course, there were the serious awards too – but the group really did know how to have a good time.  As always, feel free to download any or all of the images for use as desktop wallpaper!  Enjoy!

Justin & Celena’s Romantic Riverfront Wedding

2013 09 Wedding Justin & Celena 14 Aetna Building

We’ve got another great wedding to post today!  Justin and Celena had a wonderful outdoor wedding and grand reception at the Aetna Riverfront building.  This was our first shoot at this great location, with beautiful old live oaks, sweeping views of the river and a spectacular, roomy lobby perfect for a reception.  But my favorite part, you ask?  They have a gigantic chunk from the Rock of Gibraltar overlooking the water – perfect for Napoleonic-styled photos (below – left)!  What a fun wedding!

Amelia Concours 2013: Special Edition – The 1923 Locomobile

2013 10 Automotive 1923 Locomobile 03 Original

Ever since this year’s Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance, I’ve been wanting to feature this great old car – and well, I’ve finally found the time.  The car in question is an all-original 1923 Locomobile Model 48 Series VIII Sportif.  As you browse through the photos, you may wonder what stood out to me about this fading, weathered and rather bleak looking car.  The paint is faded, the seats are worn and ripped in places, and yet this 90 year old car is a survivor.  You see, the vast majority of the cars at the Concours are pristine – they have either been flawlessly restored or vacuum-sealed from the moment they left the production line or coach maker.  But this Locomobile is different.  Just one look, and you can see this car has a history – a story that encourages investigation.

And history it has.  Though over 90 years old, it has less that 25,000 original miles and on the RM auction block this spring, sold for $176,000.  To see more details about the vehicle’s history and some great staged photos of the car, feel free to visit the RM website. Want to see more coverage from the 2013 Concours?  Then visit the Concours section of our blog for a large collection of images from the weekend.

2013 10 Event Amelia Island Wine Festival 01

This month, we had the pleasure of shooting two events for Amelia Island.  The first, as hinted at above, was of the annual Amelia Island Wine Festival.  The event boasts a great combination of top-shelf local wineries, as well as other award-winning regional and national vintners.  The festival also featured fine cuisine from a variety of local restaurants, including a tasty and creative take on paella from the good folks at Espana.

Shoreline Dinners and Conference Dreams with Inovalon

2013 09 Inovalon Amelia 08 Ritz-Carlton

One more post for today – this was a really fun and unique event we had the privilege of covering at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.  The group, Inovalon, hosted a truly wonderful event at the resort – with lots of innovative ideas that really made the conference a memorable occasion.  Take, for example, the beachfront dinner – not only did the group have a beautiful location and stunning decor (above), but check out the gallery below to see their custom flip-flops and the guests encounter with the resort’s parrot, Amelia.

The Civil War at Night – Fort Clinch Under the Stars in HD

2013 09 Fine Fort Clinch 05 Civil War at Night

If you’ve followed us for any time, you probably know I am fascinated and moved by the heroes and horrors of the American Civil War.  Last week, we had the pleasure of shooting an event for Inovalon, which included a beautiful evening at Fort Clinch, a Civil War-era fort on the the northern tip of Amelia Island.  The fort itself has a relatively bloodless, but none the less fascinating history that I always enjoy.  To learn (and see) more about the fort, please feel free to visit our post on the 150th Anniversary of Union capture of the Fort.

But back to this shoot – while there I had the opportunity to capture some fine art images for our client as well as the typical event photos we provide.  The evening looked like rain, but by dusk a sliver of sky was lit ablaze by the setting sun, making for some amazing conditions for that Ken Burns style of sunset photography you may have seen during his documentary, The Civil War. The group was also treated to a pair of twilight field artillery firings courtesy of the a great group of civil war reenactors attached to the fort (below).

Josh & Rebecca’s Stunning Jekyll Island Wedding

2013 09 Wedding Rebecca & Josh 15 Jekyll Island

We’re hoping to catch up with some of our blog posts this weekend – starting with a post for this great couple, Rebecca and Josh.  The couple chose Jekyll Island for their destination wedding – marrying on the island’s beautiful driftwood-covered north beach.  The couple was great fun to work with and had some really creative ideas, including the photo below (think superhero/Thor’s hammer).   The reception was also held on the beach, at the Villas by the Sea Resort.  Be sure to check out all the great details from their softly-lit twilight event.

Dostie’s Warm and Welcoming Las Calinas Model

2013 09 Architecture Dostie 10 Appaloosa Model

We once again had the pleasure of shooting a beautiful Dostie Homes project – this time a wonderfully designed and decorated model home in the new St Augustine neighborhood of Las Calinas.   While I enjoy all our architectural projects, there is nothing quite like shooting a well designed and staged home – as was certainly the case with this great property.  Dostie Homes teamed up with talented interior designer Josie Myers, owner of Ms. J Design, to highlight the great potential this open floor plan home has to offer.

2013 09 Architecture Dostie 23 Appaloosa Model

Be sure to check out all the great details in the gallery below – there is a lot to take in!  From design elements like the coffered ceilings, intricate moldings and innovative use of nooks and spaces, to the perfectly paired furniture, fixtures and accessories that give each room their own distinct personality – this home is really worth not only a visit here on the blog, but an actual tour should you find yourself in the St Augustine area.   And, as always, check out some of our favorite shots from this shoot below.
