Jenny & Travis’ Classy & Creative Destin Wedding!

This past weekend was another one of those “away” weddings out in Destin, FL – our fourth this year!  Must be a popular place to get married.  Jenny and Travis had lots of really wonderful and creative ideas that really made the wedding their own.  From renting a home that housed 33 people (that’s about 2/3rds of the guests) so they could have everyone close, to all these great framed chalk boards that they had around the oceanfront wedding site and back at the house – where they also held the reception. Future brides – there are a lot of great ideas you may want to put your own personal touch on for your wedding day.

Congrats Jenny and Travis!  Check out all our favorite photos below!

Courtney & Frank’s Classic Beach Club Wedding!

We had a great time shooting Courtney and Frank’s wedding this weekend – all the more so as our story with this family began many moons ago! Fresh out of college, I was hired by TNT Logistics (Now CEVA Logistics) to be their marketing and graphics guy for their North America operations.  That’s where I first met Courtney’s dad, Jeff.  Since leaving CEVA to run Deremer Studios full time back in 2007, we’ve stayed in touch and this summer, they asked us to photograph Courtney’s upcoming wedding.  The wedding itself was gorgeous – lots of wonderful details created by the wedding coordinator and the folks at Sawgrass Beach Club.  For me, the event was also a reunion of sorts – as I had the opportunity to connect with many folks from those old TNT days, including the event coordinator at the Sawgrass Beach Club – small world!   Congrats Courtney and Frank!  Check out all our favorite photos below!

Emily & Will’s Intimate Omni Wedding!

We recently had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Emily, Will, and their close friends and family at the Omni Hotel in Jacksonville, FL.  As you can see from the photos, the wedding was small, but that didn’t stop the bride and groom from having a great time!  What a fun couple to work with!   Check out all our favorite photos below!

Panoramic Views & Gorgeous Details with Dreambuilder Custom Homes

Dreambuilder Custom Homes recently completed construction of their latest project – a beautiful two story home in Jacksonville Beach, FL. They had us out last week to photograph this great project.  The weather on the evening of the shoot was really quite splendid and allowed for great lighting both indoor and out.  Sean Starr (Dreambuilder’s President) designed this home from scratch with a really impressive attention to detail and some impressive creativity that really makes this home shine.

One of my favorite spaces in this house was the kitchen/living room area (above).  The space was full of windows that light up the room beautifully during the late afternoon.  Another unique feature was the round tower with wrap around windows that give you a 270 degree view of the quiet little neighborhood on both the first a second floors.  Check out all our favorite shots from the shoot below:

Shenelle & Josh’s Wonderful & Whimsical Jacksonville Wedding!

Bryn and I had the pleasure of both shooting the wonderful wedding of Shenelle and Josh a few weeks ago.  Not only did they have some great ideas (see above as evidence), but they also chose some great venues for their special day.  The couple was married at Riverside Park Methodist Church – a really beautiful classic revival church with gorgeous exposed rafters – and then had their reception at the Haskel Building (Riverfront Cafe & Catering), overlooking the waters of the St Johns River.  Check out all our favorite photos below!

Kristen & Mike’s Beautiful Surf and Turf Wedding!

We love autumn weddings!  We especially love them when they include Amelia Island, classic churches, boats, and a fun couple – as was the case with Kristen and Mike’s wedding.  The ceremony was held at the historic St Peter’s Episcopal Church in downtown Fernandina, followed by a scenic boat ride to the reception site, Oyster Bay Yacht Club.   Congrats Kristen and Mike – here’s to many, many years of joy!

Trent & Jenny’s Awesome Amelia Island Wedding!

We recently had the pleasure of capturing Trent & Jenny’s great Amelia Island wedding.  This intimate gathering, capped by some truly gorgeous weather and wispy cirrus clouds, made for a wonderful and meaningful wedding day!  Be sure to take a look at their bride and groom t-shirts as well – pretty hilarious!  Check out all our favorite photos from the wedding below!

Tuscan Inspiration with Dostie Homes

If you live in Northeast Florida, you know Friday was one of those all-day dreary sort of rainy days.  Thursday also happened to be the day we had scheduled to shoot Dostie Home’s latest project in Palencia, just outside of St Augustine proper.  We usually like to schedule backup days for just such weather situations, but due to the fact that the homeowners were moving in that night, we weren’t able to.  So, we made the call to give it a try – a decision I was seriously questioning as I sat for 45 minutes in rain-slowed traffic on a 4 mile stretch of 9A.

But as you can see from the photos, the weather actually worked out quite well.  The nice thing about overcast skies is that they act like a 10,000 foot diffuser, which helps to balance both interior and exterior lighting.  Of course, getting the pretty sky photos may be out of the question, but you can still get some really unique shots.  And this home certainly made my job easy!  It was filled with great design elements, as well as classy upgrades and a gorgeous square-accented bathroom.  Plus, the manufactured stone on the fireplace (which I love) is the same as you’ll find if dining at Seasons 52.  Check out all our favorite shots from the shoot below:

Amelia Island’s Hearty Dose of Blues

This past weekend, i hopped in the TR, drove up to Amelia, and had the pleasure of shooting their annual blues festival for AmeliaIsland.com. The weather was perfect, the rain held off, and the artists were wonderful!  Not a bad night on the job…  Here are several of our favorite photos from the day – as always, downloadable as HD desktop wallpaper.  Enjoy!

Lee & Heather’s Quaint & Cozy St Augustine Wedding!

Over the weekend, along with having our commercial shoot at the Ritz-Carlton, we also had the pleasure of shooting the beautiful wedding of Heather and Lee, down at the Bayfront Marin House B&B in St Augustine, FL.  Though the weather has been a bit dodgy the past week or so, this warm evening was perfect for an intimate outdoor wedding overlooking the waters of St Augustine.  Congrats Lee & Heather!  Check out all our favorite photos from the wedding below!

Gator Bowl or Bust!

This past week, thanks to our friends at Dorsey Media Group, we had the pleasure of shooting an event at Everbank Field for the Gator Bowl Association.  But this wasn’t the first times our paths had crossed – just a few weeks ago, we photographed the mouth-watering Great Southern Tailgate Cookoff  (See our blog post Here – but be warned, you may have a sudden urge for BBQ) – and guess who was there with their gorgeous touring bus?  You guessed it – the Gator Bowl Association.  Photos from both events are below.  Enjoy the photos!

Shicela & Robert’s Awesome OP Wedding!

This past weekend, we had the pleasure of shooting Shicela and Robert’s fun and energetic wedding celebration at the Club Continental.  From prep time to the end of the night, this fun-filled couple made the hours fly by.  I had the pleasure of getting to know the couple during their engagement shoot earlier this year (remember our American Gothic-esque Rustic Engagement Shoot?) and that was a ball too.  Lots of energy and creativity always make for a great wedding!  Check out all our favorite photos from the wedding below!

P.S. – Notice anything new about our images?  If you guessed “new logo”, you’re spot-on.  But why, you ask?  Well you’ll have to stay tuned for our next blog post to get all the details!

Say Cheese! Ritz-Carlton Group Photo Shoot

Okay, well the above photo doesn’t look too much like smiling people standing in a group, but I promise, we did do a group photo shoot (as evidenced by the photo below).   As usual, our friends at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island created some absolutely stunning culinary treats for the folks at the Health Information Associates.

The weather had been a bit spotty last week, but thankfully the clouds parted for some great outdoor photography opportunities.  So, I climbed a ladder, took aim, and stumbled upon these photos.  What a fun group!  Enjoy the photos!

Candace & Jamie’s Intimate Gulf Wedding!

We really have been blessed to have so many wonderful, kind and fun couples over the years.  Jamie and Candace were another one of these great couples to spend a day with.

Last week we had the opportunity to drive out to the Destin area for a second time this month.  We had a great time spending the day with Candace, Jamie, and all their guests along the white sands and indigo waters of the Gulf of Mexico.  Did you know that the sands in this area squeak when you walk on them – it’s the weirdest thing…  Though the weather was a bit overcast, the conditions were really wonderful for an August afternoon.  While this was a smaller destination wedding, the couple welcomed me as though I was family and we had a great time playing with the camera while enjoying the wonderful view (and the occasional low-level flyby).   Check out all our favorite photos from the wedding below!

Gettin’ Our Pig On – Great Southern Tailgate Cookoff: Day 2

Saturday, we began to feel some effects of Isaac – but not the rain you would expect – rather it was a wonderful breeze off the ocean that made what would have been a pretty hot day downright comfortable.  And that’s pretty rare for an August afternoon!  Saturday was when most of the judging took place, as well as the awards and some great concerts including the world-famous Little River Band. Here are several of our favorite photos from the day – as always, downloadable as HD desktop wallpaper.  Enjoy!
