Photographing a destination at the Dominican Republic has been a dream of mine ever since I became a wedding photographer. So when May and Wai approached me a few months ago and asked me to photograph their wedding in Punta Cana, it was truly a great blessing. How I met these two in the first place was through a destination wedding in Hawaii our company photographed at the beginning of this year, and the rest as they say is history. May and Wai’s wedding ceremony was held at Dreams Palm Beach resort on a beautiful sandy white beach, which presented us with a breathtaking view of the calm blue ocean. Despite it being almost unbearable hot, that in no way stopped everyone from smiling, laughing and shedding tears of joy. An outdoor reception followed in the evening where the food and decor was second to none, and from there everybody danced the night away.
One thing I love about destination weddings is the opportunity to build a better relationship with the couple you travel along with their circle of family and friends. As the wedding day progressed, I found just as much joy in being there as anybody else; not only because I love documenting weddings, but because at that point I considered everyone a friend. After the wedding day, a number of us went on an excursion through Mike’s Dominican Adventure, who by the way is an amazing individual whose tours I highly recommend to anyone who plans on visiting Punta Cana in the future. Naturally, I used this opportunity to take more photos of May and Wai, and captured some stunning images we did! Now hurry and scroll down!
