Where do I even start? This may be the longest blog post I’ve ever compiled. I was blessed to be chosen as the photographer for a destination wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic at the Jellyfish Restaurant back in November. To say that I was ecstatic would be an understatement. From the first time Kim and I met, I knew that we would work awesome together; she is the most laid back, beautiful person. The first time I met Dylan was the night before the wedding. We met up with him and Kim, and they invited us to hang out with their family and friends that were in for the wedding. Now, if you don’t know Kim and Dylan then you are unaware of their AMAZING dance abilities. I sat in awe at how in sync these two are when they are on the dance floor. Dylan pulled my husband and I on the dance floor and tried teaching us a thing or two, I’m still waiting on that double date dance lesson night. I know Heath, my husband, will be thrilled when we finally plan that. Seriously though, teach us folks how to do all of that! Anyway, back to the wedding. After a night of so much fun and laughter, we returned to our rooms to prepare for the following day. Waking up in the Dominican is something I could most definitely get used to. I kept telling Heath that we should move there and he could be a bellboy and I could work for the photographer of the resort as long as someone could ship my dog to me and her make it there safely. This place is gorgeous, I can’t wait to go back.
If you know of someone having a destination wedding and they need a photographer, I’m their girl.
Kimberly was so calm on the morning of the wedding, despite the van being a bit late to pick us up. The venue was the Jellyfish Restaurant and was absolutely perfect. Kim had been in contact with the wedding coordinator for months and she perfectly put together a wedding and reception that Kim had envisioned and executed it effortlessly. From the small details, to the food, to the service, to the fire dancers and the crazy dancers, to the people treating you like one of their own, to the sand beneath my toes as I worked, to Kim handing me a drink and telling me to put down my camera and dance; this was without a doubt the most amazing wedding that I’ve ever attended. Kim and Dylan were so welcoming and truly wanted us to not only work, but to have a blast at their celebration. I cannot thank you guys enough for trusting me to capture your wedding day; it’s an event that I will not forget for the rest of my life.
I’ll quit my rambling, the former English teacher in me is wanting to tell you guys all about it, but honestly, the images will speak for themselves. I give you Kimberly and Dylan’s Dominican Wedding. Enjoy!
Christine and Alex are so perfect for each other. They were married in October at the beautiful Broussard Farm in Beaumont, Texas. If you are looking for an awesome venue that offers a spectacular outdoor area for your wedding, this is the place to go. I loved shooting here so very much. Thank y’all so much for choosing me to capture your special day; I had an absolute blast!
Here are some highlights from their bigday!
Marissa has to be one of my favorite seniors to ever photograph. I have watched her grow up from the little blonde haired girl with thick glasses to this gorgeous young woman that lights up a room with her smile. I can’t wait to see where this girl goes in her future; she has a great life ahead of her. Here are just a few of my favorites from her session. I honestly had to play eenie meenie minee mo to decide which ones to share with you guys. Too much beauty right here!
