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.

This week's image is an example of what can be done in 5 minutes when you've taken the time to scout out the location in advance.

We would have been quite limited in terms of our options for wedding photography had we stayed in the immediat ...

This week's photograph is taken from a wedding I did last year at the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club in Durham, NC. It was taken in the bride's hotel room while she was having the final touches of her make-up applied. As I have mentioned in earlier posts, I very much enjoy this part of the day as it is invariably a moment of great anticipation for the bride and her cortège. There's normally pretty heady mixture of happiness and laughter in the air, but there are a lot of other feelings running their course too: expectation, trepidation and, often, a few butterflies. With such a wealth of emotions on show, it's a great time to take some pre ...
