On Display: Appalachian Alumni Art Exhibition

Originally uploaded by Turchin Center for the Visual Arts

I currently have two photographs on display as part of a gallery exhibition. The gallery just sent out some photos of the entire exhibit and I found a couple which show off my photos. Here you can see my photograph 'Vintage photography.'

The exhibition it the Appalachian Alumni in the Arts Exhibition at the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts in Boone, NC.

My other photograph 'Lighting Sound' is hanging right above this photograph you can just see the bottom edge of that photograph in the upper right corner of this picture.

I think it is pretty cool that I have my photos on display. Also, if anyone is interested in purchasing these prints, they are both for sale for $112 each. 40% of the purchase price goes to support the Turchin Center.

Cheers, Pete

New Smyrna Beach, FL Wedding Photographer: Ashlynd and Morgan's Beach wedding


A few weeks ago I first met Ashlynd and Morgan when I photographed them for an engagement photography session.  After seeing how the images turned out from that session they booked me to capture the memories of their wedding day.  On Saturday, they were wed in a ceremony on the beach at Smyrna Dunes Park in New Smyrna Beach, FL on the South side of the Ponce Inlet.  They are a real fun couple and their love for each other can brighten any room they walk into.  It was a real pleasure to be able to capture these images.

One of the coolest things for this wedding ceremony was the planned formation fly-over by these planes.  If anyone in New Smyrna Beach saw the fly-over it was for this wedding.  The Groom is a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and arranged the fly-over.

The reception following the ceremony was held at the Nuns & Roses Bed and Breakfast in New Smyrna Beach, FL.  It is a quaint little B&B with a great area the call the 'wedding gardens' which is perfect for intimate outdoor receptions.  I had a chance to create some fun images of the reception and use some off camera flash to make the images below.

This image below is the Man of Honor (The Bride's Brother).  He was making a toast which was as serious as it was funny.  This shot came together with some luck and a lot of exposures to get a few shots that worked.  It was a little bit of a challenge to shoot the reception outside at night, but I made it work and I like the results.

The catering and wedding coordinators were from

Encore Catering of Central Florida

in DeLand, FL.  Including the custom made cupcake tree below.

Congratulations Ashlynd and Morgan!

Thank-you for letting me capture your wedding and your love for each other.
