When Alex & Zach decided to take their honeymoon trip to the Dominican Republic, they thought that since they never got formal engagement photos, it might be fun to do a sort of honeymoon photo session, mainly because otherwise they’d only have those awkwardly posed photos taken by random strangers.
And so a common friend recommended them to get in contact with me, and from the first email, we all knew we were in for a good ride. I mean they were supposed to be visiting all the right places around our country, and I was not going to choose, I mean come on?
Their route included a few days at the Santo Domingo Colonial Zone, Oldest European settlement in the New World & UNESCO World Heritage Site. A few other days are doing some eco-tourism in our beautiful mountains, in my favorite province Jarabacoa, to end with a long weekend of lazy resting in the very well known of Punta Cana. So, of course, I tricked them into a photo adventure all around, and when they answered back all excited about it, I flipped out!
And off we go on an adventure
The images resulting from these photoshoots are some of my favorites ever. Not just because of the photos, but the overall experience. The island adventure, the conversations, the surprises, the laughing, the traffic jam that almost ruined our first day photoshoot at the magical Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo and made us improvise and ending having a night shooting instead of a sunset one.
The awe of discovering together the Baiguate Waterfalls such a beautiful treasure hidden in my own country that I have never met before. The grapes tossing contests, the double rainbows, the unexpected rain, the beautiful and wild Macao Beach.
But mainly these photo shoots were all about documenting real life, fun, and the love between two people that consider each other home and the genuine experiences that connect us and convert strangers into friends who resonate and can totally understand each other’s feelings and stories just for having the intention to.
Overall I think the images posted here summarize our adventure pretty well.
