prestonwood country club weddings – yasmin & michael

Raleigh Wedding Photojournalism

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. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

Just a quick post before I head out to celebrate my birthday with the family - yay BEER & CAKE! Beth & Matt's downtown Raleigh wedding at Market Hall was my last of the 2016 season and it was a great way to close out the year. Such a lovely couple whose love for each other was evident throughout the day. Combine that with a loving group of family and friends, the fun of shooting in a busy downtown Raleigh while a demonstration was going on, a great venue and awesome vendors, and photo opportunities are bound to be there for taking. Here are just a few of my picks of the pics: &n ...

For this week's image, I wanted to go with something completely different to last time and I don't think you can get much different than this! I talk a lot about favouring a photojournalistic approach to what I do, but I really do enjoy the portraiture associated with shooting the bride and groom together on their special day too. Often, the biggest hurdle to getting this right is the sheer lack of time for the couple to relax and get away from everyone else, but if planned properly, the results can be really spectacular. On this occasion, the bride had planned a four-hour window between the end of the wedding ceremony and the start of the re ...

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 ...
