Destination Weddings

It's been a long, long time since I've updated ye ol' blog, so here are some photos for your viewing pleasure.  Recently, I've had the pleasure to shoot a couple very nice destination weddings.  The first was in Jasper Alberta, which is one of my favorite spots in the world.  I then shot a wedding in The Dominican Republic.

This first one was taken at Patrica Lake, with Pyramid Mountain in the background. 


You have got to love a little bit of Star Wars in your wedding accoutrement.  Like practically everything else do to with this wedding, it was hand made by the bride.


 



 This was actually their first kiss as a married couple, no posing required. 



This next photo was was taken up near Maligne Canyon, overlooking the town of Jasper.


This is right up inside Maligne Canyon.  At the time, I remember being so excited that I actually had a bride and groom willing to hike into the canyon.  They were very cool and up for anything to get great photos.  


 Another one in Maligne Canyon. Beautiful Location, beautiful couple, what's not to love?


There is just something about a wedding dress.  They are such an integral part of the wedding preparation and the wedding day, yet once their job is done, that's it.  I love shooting the dress before it's put on, it just conveys a sense of anticipation. 


A lot of friends and family made the trip.  It was a blast.


Another awesome couple.


The beach, the ocean, the palm trees...it was magical.


I could really get used to shooting weddings in the Caribbean.   

We were at a resort, Catalonia Bavaro, in the Punta Cana area.  Absolutely Beautiful.


 Punta Cana is on the East side of the Island, so there wasn't really a good spot for sunset photos, but I managed to get them in front of the lobby for this one.
