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!

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 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. In this case, we had just a few minutes after the November ceremony at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Raleigh to take some quick pictures of the bride and groom. I'd taken the time to head out the day before to check out the lighting at that time and had noticed that there was an area across the road from the church that would provide a nice backdrop of autumn colours and light at that time of day. We would have been quite limited in terms of our options for wedding photography had we stayed in the immediat ...
