Engagement

Shannon & Bryan (preview)

Every once in a while, you can get a little glimpse of what can be come of good friendships.  A friend of Shannon who I work with wanted to give a special gift to Shannon and Bryan, a secret photo shoot on the day of their wedding.  While the overall wedding plans were being kept low key, Shannon's friend knew Shannon had always dreamed of getting married on a beach.  In the initial planning of the secret shoot, we did not know how it would all play out... its not usually a good idea to suprise a bride on her wedding, with unplanned events and as it worked out the secret had to be shared just before the wedding day.  With a now planned short excursion to the beach Just before the wedding, I was able to capture some magic.  

2013 Year in Photos: Florida Photographer Peter Arnold's best shots

From President Bill Clinton to each Bride and Family photographed this year.  I was busy, all added up there were tens of thousands of photographs that I shot this year.  Not only of my brides and grooms, families and children, seniors and a friends.  I shot close to 50 graduations, about a dozen Marathons and Half-Marathons.  Traveled to NC twice for shooting assignments which included Graduations, a Wedding, and a headshot photo shoot for an actress that has co-starred with Sandra Bullock, and Tim McGraw in the feature film The Blindside.    As I'm sitting here finishing out 2013, waiting for the last wedding album to be delivered, and pulling all my business information together to file Sales Tax and income Tax paperwork, and as plans for 2014 are starting to come together (ahem... Video..., well we'll see what happens)  I wanted to share some of my personal favorite images all shot by me this year.  Please leave a comment, and let me know what you are grateful for in 2013, and a resolution for 2014, and I might pick you for a complementary portrait session.  

Cheers,

Chelsea & Jamie- St. Augustine Engagement Photographer

I had the chance to meet up with Chelsea and Jamie in St. Augustine, FL to photograph their Engagement Photo session.  It was a lot of fun for all three of us.  We started with some photos in the Fort Castillo de San Marcos and had a chance to see the canons fired out over the river.  We then headed down along the river and captured the Bridge of Lions in the background.  Next we looked for some cool spots on some of the  hidden cobblestone streets of downtown St. Augustine.  After a break for dinner and a wardrobe change, we set out to capture some night photos with the millions of white Christmas lights that are a tradition in St. Augustine called the Nights of Lights.
