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.
Wedding Vow Renewal
All setup and ready to go, the crew from Paradise Beach Weddings (http://www.paradisebeachweddings.net) did a great job getting everything set, they even raked out the sand. This was from a wedding a couple summers ago, but I like it how is shows you can have a great setup for a beach wedding and it makes a difference, rather than just having all your guests stand around.

Last weekend I had the opportunity to capture the memories of a very important day for Brittany and CJ. Brittany and CJ were celebrating their 5th year wedding anniversary with a full wedding vow renewal ceremony. They pulled out all the stops and went all out, and planned a great beach ceremony and a reception for their closest friends and family. I first met them a few months back when I photographed them for a Couples/Engagement photo session. I was really excited they loved my work so much that they immediately booked me to photograph their special day. Here are a few of my favorite images. ENJOY! -Pete

On Saturday I had the opportunity to photograph Brittany and CJ. They have been married for a few year and are planning a wedding vow renewal ceremony this summer for their 5th anniversary. For their photo session I planed to photograph in two locations. The first part of our session was along Flagler Ave. in the heart of New Smyrna Beach. As we walked down the street I looked for locations with nice light and I gad a change to talk to Brittany and CJ and get to know them a little bit. For the second part of the photo shoot we traveled up to Smyrna Dunes Park. Located at the Northern most part of the New Smyrna Beach peninsula on the South side of The Ponce DeLeon Inlet. This park has a long boardwalk walkway which leads to a section of traffic free beach. We got there just before sunset and I made the light really work for me. Here are a few of the shots from Saturday.
