Affordable ~ Beautiful ~  Personalized 

Thank you for visiting our portfolio website!  A New Horizon Photography is a wedding, portrait & event photography company located in St. Petersburg, Florida. We service all of Florida and will travel to most every location in the US.   

A New Horizon Photography began in 2007 as Ava Schaffner Photography, then grew into A New Horizon Photography.  In the beginning, our primary focus was photographing sunset weddings and portraits On-The-Beach (hence the Horizon in our name).  We still LOVE to photograph beach portraits and weddings but we do so much more.

In May 2017, we joyfully celebrated our 10-year business milestone!  We can honestly say, from the very beginning, our goal has been to put a smile on your face by giving you lovable photographs AND we've been doing that for 10 years. Thanks to our clients for their trust and choosing us.

Our portfolio site is merely a sampling of past photography works to give you a sense of our quality AND ability to capture one's personality and tell One's Story.

Every client and every event is personal to us.   Points we highlight:

  • You are never a number or $ figure.
  • We aim to make you feel at home, at ease, and comfortable in front of our cameras.
  • We work to learn so much about you or your event that you might be surprised and delighted.
  • In fact, we often take an active roll in helping you with your wedding or event planning (where and if needed) to ensure it is enjoyable for you. 
  • AND you'll see the results in your photographs! Reflections of your happiness and lasting memories of the event you've always wanted and planned for.

We also know and believe that YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS are what will remain of your precious moments that you've worked so hard to create (when this is a wedding).  Meaning it's on our shoulders.  But don't worry we are seasoned veterans, we know the ropes, we've navigated thru calm and rough waters and always pull off a beautiful success. And if you ever have any questions we'll happily give you names and numbers from current and past clients to confer with.
