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.
