About the Photographer
I take photographs that capture life, emotion, love, and passion of people. I have worked hard to develop my skills and technical expertise and the ability to capture the true emotion of my clients. I love when I am able to capture real emotions in a split second with the click of my shutter. With every photo session I will try to capture the true essence of my subjects whether I am shooting a portrait or preserving the memories of the most important days in the lives of my clients.
I have always felt that photographing people is not only the most challenging, but the most exciting and most rewarding thing about photography. From the very first portrait session I photographed to the most recent wedding, I have always worked to provide a higher quality products and a level of service to my clients.
I love photographing people, I love the challenge of photographing weddings, I love the reactions on my clients faces when I present their photographs to them.
Pete is also a Member of The Professional Photographers of America, and Florida Professional Photographers
Want to know more?
I was born and raised on Long Island, in the shadow of NYC. My family moved to FL, where I attended high school in a small little beach town known as 'The Shark Bite Capital Of The World'. After high school, I wanted to get out of FL and go somewhere where there was a chance for some snow in the winter, and I went to college in North Carolina.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with a concentration in International Relations from Catawba College.
I stayed in NC for a few more years and went to grad school and earned a Masters degree in Higher Education Administration from Appalachian State University.
I worked my way back to FL and began working as a photographer after grad school. In addition to all the great portrait and wedding photography that I do for my own company (Peter Arnold Photography), I work as a photographer for GradImages© where I photograph several thousand college and high school graduates each year. I also work as part of the team of photographers from MarathonFoto© where I photograph thousands of marathon runners and athletes across central Florida.
I love photography and am drawn to the challenge of getting the shots that others cannot. I pride myself in understanding the technical aspects of light, and location as well as composure, and creativity. If you choose me as your photographer, whether to capture your wedding day, your family portrait on the beach, or some other special even in your life, I will do my best, and bring all my knowledge and experience to make sure I capture your favorite images.
