Angelica + John Wedding @ Huracan Cafe in Punta Cana

Oh boy! this is a pretty long one so prepare yourselves!

I met Angie about a year ago when she hired me to shoot their engagement party, instantly i was sold on this pair! usually with 5 minutes for portraits is kind of hard to end up with much of a lot, just the basic important poses, however on the day of their engagement party with less than 5 minutes these pros dove in and gave me some of my best work! I couldn’t be more excited when i found out they wanted me on board for their destination wedding at the beautiful Huracan Cafe! a place that has become like a home away from home for me! i just knew it it would be awesome!

Fast forward to a year later here i was in the scorching heat of Punta Cana, battling a cold but excited as hell to link up with Angie and John to make some magic! Natalia killed it as usual bringing to life Angie’s vision with soft neutral tones, linked up with Anna and Kristy who handled the girls hair and make up and Manuel of Diego Cores Films, so on this day it literally felt like a big old reunion with old friends and everyone stepped up to the plate and worked perfectly together.

Thank you Angelica for trusting me with such a special day, me and Angie (my wife, they share names…lol) had an absolute blast! hope you enjoy these pics of your day!

Kateryna + Chris Wedding @ Huracan Cafe

Prepare yourselves as this is one of those lonnnngg blog posts from me!

This was my second wedding on my first trip to Punta Cana this year and as always it was a blast, i seriously need to figure out a way to shoot there at least for 2 months out of the year, it really is effortless for me to work under the environment provided there or maybe I’m used to the NYC struggle and challenges when it comes to exploiting my creativity as a shooter, that when I shoot in PC everything almost becomes second nature.

Anyhow meet Kateryna + Chris who tied the knot at the beautiful Huracan Cafe in Punta Cana, while their guest count was very small and intimate, they packed a hell of a party and a very sweet crowd that treated me as though they knew me long before the wedding, the day started at the resort Now Larimar, just a couple of steps from the Huracan, there i met Chris and his boys at the beach, instead of going the traditional route of getting ready pics all grooms do, Chris wanted no parts of that and instead we decided on doing an improv shoot! some drinks, some football and even a champagne shower were part of his getting ready pics, just a bunch of guys having a fun time. After i was done with Chris i walked over to Huracan right on the beach (one of the joys of working on the island….lol) and I met up with my amazing bride Kat and began my usual routine of detail shots to showcase the beauty of Natis work and Kats vision and most important Kat and her bridesmaids in their candid element, I’m not sure which group i had more fun with, the guys or the girls, I think ill give the edge to the guys ONLY because they played a game of football…lol…no seriously i had a blast working with all of these guys.

Anyhow, Ill cut this wall of text short and let you guys enjoy the pics of this fantastic wedding.

Jessica + Eric @ Perona Farms NJ

Hey Guys! first wedding of the year in the books, thanks some new editing tools and the initial boost of the start of a new season i was able to finish off this wedding in a week! super happy! It didn’t hurt that it was a very fun one to edit with lots of cool shots of a very fun and beautiful group! Jess + Eric chose to tie the knot @ Perona Farms in New Jersey, had a very rustic vibe to it which i loved! and guess what! they had a naked wedding cake which I’m a sucker for! a week before the wedding we got hit pretty hard with almost 2 feet of snow, but then had some warm weather and we were left with just enough snow to paint a pretty backdrop for our portraits! any who, Ill write up some more details later, at this point I’m just eager to show these off, so hope you guys enjoy!
