Trash The Wedding Dress – Punta Cana – Bavaro Beach No. 2

It’s finally here..  The second round of photos from of our trash the dress session in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

It’s 7:30am and our bride was set to having some fun on the sand and in water. Yes, she said WET to the wedding dress!! We began near hotel Barcelo Dominican beach and Playa Turquesa resort where we found a white wall covered in pretty Bugambilia flowers. A perfect compliment to our lovely lady. We then continued on a stone path with large walls that led us to the beach. We started with some dry creative shots on the sand. Some crafty angling helped keep the speedo trotting tourist out of frame.

We then moved on to an area I scoped the evening before south of Los Corales Bavaro Beach where there was a large dock with enough room to go under. This was a great spot with even lighting and calmer waves. Well there were some random large waves that not only splash over the bride but also got me wet waist high. :) Destination wedding photography is not always a dry job.




I after a morning morning of fun, I continued on past Secrets Royal Beach resort and Paradisus Palma Real Resort to scope out new spots for future destination wedding couples.

Rock The Dress – Destination Photograhy – Bavaro Punta Cana

For those who haven’t had the pleasure to visit Punta Cana, you really are missing out on something amazing! It was pure BLISS to be in Dominican Republic where SUMMER shone and tropical flowers blossomed; paradise for a destination photographer. Punta Cana has its admirable lush ideal for our vivid destination Rock The Dress photography.

We did a few days of shooting to try to get a verity of shots in different locations for our lovely bride.

Session one of the Rock the Dress photos below was kept conservative to capture the beauty of the bride. It took place on the beautiful white sands of Bavaro beach beside Jellyfish restaurant Punta Cana. Jellyfish is a popular venue for destination wedding ceremonies and reception. The surrounding beach is lovely with palm tress lining the white sand shore.

I took great pleasure doing the session with freedom of spontaneity.

The gorgeous red destination bouquet was done by Pacific Florists in Toronto.
