November has been a gloriously warm month and we started it off in style with Martie and John’s wedding at the Brier Creek Country Club. The day began with Martie and her entourage getting ready at the Marriott RTP and, from there, we headed over to the country club which provided a gorgeous venue for the rest of the day.

Despite a slight chill, we were treated to a lovely sunny day which really brought out the golden hues of the fall and provided some great directional light for the formals and photos of the couple.

With regard to the day itself, everything was put together fantastically and ran smoothly thanks to Sharon and the team from Orangerie Events. When it came to the reception, Randy Bennett of Joe Bunn DJ Company span some really great tunes that got the crowd on their feet till the very end.

All in all it was a great occasion for all involved. Here are just a few of my favourite images taken offer the course of the day.



Martie’s friends should also be sure to check out her bridal session photos here…

Congrats to them both! Here is the amazing team of people tha ...
prestonwood country club weddings – yasmin & michael
On this Thanksgiving Day, I want to say how thankful I am to be lucky enough to be able to do what I love for a living. It truly is a great privilege to be able to spend my time documenting people on the happiest days of their lives. To see two families, and often two or more cultures, coming together to form one new union and to be able to photograph that event, is something very special indeed. Case in point: Yasmin and Michael's wedding at Prestonwood Country Club. A wedding that brings together a bride with Pakistani and Philippine roots and a groom with Irish blood is always going to be a recipe for fun! Here are my picks of the pics. ...
