2013: The Year in Photos

2013 03 Concours - McLaren Amelia 22

What a year it has been!  As I look back on 2013, I am overcome with thankfulness to all the many clients, couples and individuals who chose Deremer Studios to provide for their photography needs.  We know there are many, many photographers out there, and we count it a privilege to have been able to serve each of you.

This year, we had the joy of photographing over 200 events, weddings and shoots – so there are just too many to list individually (though you may see a photo or two from many of our shoots in the gallery below).  However if you would like to see our highlights from any given section, feel free to click on the links below.

There are two particular shoots I would like to mention – for two very different reasons.  The first is our coverage of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance for McLaren (top).  When I was young, the McLaren F1 was by far the most amazing supercar ever made – and I loved it!  So, when I received a call from McLaren, I was a little surprised and more than a bit excited.  This was a dream come true – and ‘mI happy to note we’ve been asked to photograph their presence at the Concours again in 2014.

2013 02 26 with Donna Genentech 22

The second shoot was for our friends at Genentech (above).  In February, we had the opportunity to photograph the 26.2 with Donna marathon on behapf of Genentech – who invents creative treatments for breast cancer.  As you may know, Bryn was diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2012 – thankfully her prognosis is great and she is nearly done with treatments – but one of the treatments she is undergoing is Herceptin – developed by Genentech!  Talk about a small world!

Up North – Fine Art Shoots from North of Florida: Western Virginia

2013 12 Fine 04 Virginia Mountain Sunrise White Top

We recently had the pleasure of heading out on a few fine art excursions over the winter break.  Our trip began in western Virginia, near Bristol, TN – where I managed to get up in time for a gorgeous sunrise over the Blue Ridge Mountains.  I recently added a 1.4x teleconverter to our equipment, which allowed me to get up close and personal with both the moon and the blinding sun as it rose over the mountains.  By the time the sun crested the rise, it was far too bright to look at. My solution – I would aim slightly to the left, focus the camera, close my eyes, and then shift the camera right until I felt the sun on my eye.  It took a few tries, but I was able to get the shot I wanted without seeing spots for the next 6 hours…

These photos are all 1920 x 1080P HD wallpaper,designed to work perfectly with your widescreen display.  As always, please feel free to download – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends!

Kristen & Jason’s Perfect Pena-Peck Wedding

2013 12 Kristen & Jason 22 St Augustine Pena Peck

We recently had the pleasure of shooting another wonderful wedding at the Peña-Peck House.  Before and after the ceremony, we had a great time walking around historic St Augustine, stopping at a variety of great photo-op locations along the way.  With Christmas decorations all around, the couple chose a classy combination of red, black and white to complement their day – and you can’t forget the s’mores!  Check out this beautiful couple’s great ideas below!

Congrats Kristen & Jason!  As always, check out all our favorite photos below!

The Sun Also Rises – Sunrises over Amelia Island!

2013 10 Fine Amelia Sunrises 02 Big Talbot

So, there’s a chance that I may have fallen a bit behind in posting some of our recent fine art shoots.  Thankfully, your wait is over!  Today, I wanted to post from a series of images I captured over the course of several mornings in late October.   I had a week-long corporate event we were photographing for Eaton at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.  Each morning, I would leave early to spend some time with the amazing panoramic views of creation that unfolded before me.  It was a wonderful blessing to start each morning in such a way – well, except for the getting up early part…

Each of the images are 1920 x 1080P full HD images, perfect for desktop wallpaper.  Please feel free to download as many as you wish, and if you like our work, please share our page with your friends and family.  As always, feel free to share, download and enjoy!

Amelia Island Adventures: Timoti’s and the Holiday Cookie Tour

2013 11 Event B&B Holiday Cookie Tour 02 Timoti

They say it isn’t a good idea to mix work and pleasure, but, at least on this occasion, I would beg to differ!  The weekend before Thanksgiving we had the pleasure of shooting a few photos for our friends at AmeliaIsland.com while enjoying the day on the island with some old friends.  Bryn and I left the kids behind and took a leisurely drive up to Timoti’s Seafood Shack for an early lunch before the B&B Holiday Cookie Tour.   This great little restaurant in Downtown Fernandina always has great seafood (pictured above) and on a bright, sunny, cool autumn day, the outdoor picnic tables offered the perfect setting to enjoy our meal.

2013 11 Event B&B Holiday Cookie Tour 07

Shortly after our meal, we met up with Justin and Jill to spend the afternoon exploring several of the great Bed and Breakfasts Amelia Island has to offer.  The Amelia Island Holiday Cookie Tour, a much-anticipated annual event on the island, offers guests the opportunity to explore these great old Bed and Breakfasts decked out in all their Christmas splendor.  This is the second year we have covered the event (see last year’s highlights here).  While touring the B&B’s, we also snapped a few photos of Justin and Jill, who are expecting their first child early next year.

All in all, it was a wonderful day full of food, friends and great holiday spirit!  As always, feel free to download any or all of the images for use as desktop wallpaper!  Enjoy!
