Dreambuilder’s Modern Take on the Classic Beach House

2014 05 Architecture - Dreambuilder 2701 Ocean 01 - Modern Beach

Late last week we had the pleasure of photographing another great residence from Dreambuilder Custom Homes.  This gorgeous ocean-front home located in Jacksonville Beach combines many of the classic elements found on traditional coastal cottages with a modern floor plan and color pallet – resulting in a striking modern facade that has hints of both coastal and industrial influences.  Not to be outdone by the exterior, when you step into the house you are eyes are carried upward into the three-story-tall foyer (below).  As we photographed the home, we discovered all sorts of wonderful details and creative applications that help this interior to shine.  Dreambuilder has really outdone itself this time!

Bright and Bountiful – Sandifer’s Ponte Vedra Kitchen Remodel

2014 04 Architecture - Sandifer Ponte Vedra 01 Kitchen Remodel

One last architectural shoot for the week – this time we’re featuring another shoot with our friends from Sandifer Custom Homes.  This kitchen remodel took an older, dated, closed-in kitchen and opened it up, brightening the space and providing ample seating options for the family.  While the space itself isn’t gigantic, the area was utilized well to maximize the usable area in an intuitive and logical way.  Perhaps my favorite part of this kitchen is the use of a beautiful slab of Alaskan white granite.

Heartwarming & Historic – Williams House Guestroom Shoot

2014 04 Architecture - Williams House 11 Amelia Island Bed and Breakfast

This week has been all about architectural shoots.  just last night we had the pleasure of spending the evening with our friends at Amelia Island Williams House – an historic 1856 Antebellum home that’s now a wonderful bed and breakfast owned and skillfully operated by Deborah & Byron McCutchen.  We first met the couple when photographing the Amelia Island Cookie Tour – their house was one of the stops.  So, when they recently spent some time renovating a few of the rooms, they gave us a call to capture the new look for these gorgeous historic guestrooms.   As with most old homes, space is a premium, so I was really glad we had our new architectural wide angle lens while up there – it really helped out!

Dostie’s Creative and Classic Palencia Model Home

2014 03 Architecture - Dostie Homes 114 Senora 02 Model Home Ext

Last Friday I had the chance to work with our friends from Dostie Homes on another one of their absolutely stunning model homes – this time in the Palencia neighborhood.   Dostie Homes again teamed up with the very talented Josie Myers, owner of Ms. J Design, and the combination of this great floor plan and Josie’s artist’s eye for interior design makes for one great model!  Be sure to check out all the unique details – from the use of some great accent colors, to the gigantic two story foyer – and don’t overlook the really neat super-sized landing / sitting area and adjacent office.

A House to a Home – A Second Visit to One of Dreambuilder’s Jacksonville Beach Homes

2014 01 Architecture - Dreambuilder 03 Avalon 2 Interior

This week we had the pleasure of spending an afternoon back at Dreambuilder Custom Homes‘ Avalon Two project.  The last time we visited, back in August, the house had just been completed and the owners had yet to move in.  So, as with many of our shoots, the photography was of an empty all-be-it beautifully designed house (view our favorite photos from that shoot here).   But even with a stunning house like this, there in nothing quite like walking into a beautifully appointed home.   That was certainly the case here – from the furniture and accessories to the artwork on the wall – everything really complimented the space.

As always, check out all our favorite photos below, as well as a few photos from the original shoot – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends and help us get the word out!

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!

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make 2013 such a wonderful year!  As always, please feel free to download – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends and help us get the word out!
