I don't even know where to start on this!! It was such an amazing opportunity to shoot this wedding.
I have known Katie since we were both in preschool and I didn't want to share the plastic horses. After 15 years in school together, we both went off to college-land and didn't see each other for about 4 years. We bumped into each other at the grocery store and she said she was going to get married in the Dominican! One: I was so happy for her. We have been through great times together and ones that aren't so glamorous (Latin tests and late nights of studying). It was so great to see her so genuinely happy!! Two: she mentioned she still needed a photographer and this could be my first destination wedding. It was a 'yes'.
Logistics aside and fast forwarding: We showed up in beautiful Punta Cana at the Hard Rock on January 30, ready to shoot her intimate, perfect, beautiful wedding on the 31st!
Here are some images from getting ready, to the ceremony, to the reception and a few in between!
Such an amazing (and warm) trip!! Thank you to Katie and her family for having us there. Thank you to Jimmy for being my adventure partner and second shooter!
