Destination wedding In Cabrera, Dominican Republic

Everything always happens for the first time. It was MY first time to shoot an amazing wedding in Cabrera, Dominican Republic. Wedding of Vera & Christian.When I received an email from wedding planner that I will have a wedding there, I couldn’t believe.Then I started to prepare my team and my staff to go where (by the way, it is an over 300 km a distance, because I live in Punta Cana). So, when I came there and saw this beautiful and huge villa, located directly on a cliff - I was excited about the upcoming big day and already imagined all this beauty. Villa Cabofino it is a wonderful place I have ever seen. The weather was terrible in the morning, and everyone was worried about this, but by the beginning of the ceremony everything was fine.We started from a first look of the bride and groom. He was standing with his back and waiting for her on the top of the cliff. She came and touched his shoulder and turned him around. He couldn’t believe his eyes (it was so to...

Dary & Jen's rousing wedding

Guess what? This was the most intense experience I have had working at weddings. This couple was so much fun and had so much positive energy.   As always, things started with the groom getting ready which took a while, but he was very open-minded and cooperative and we had a lot of fun.   Meanwhile, the bride was waiting for me. She was so sweet and humble, and wasn’t inclined to pose much. However, she was so beautiful that it was hard for me to stop. It does happen whenever I shoot someone truly gorgeous.   They organised the whole wedding by themselves, how exciting is that?!   When the ceremony finished and as they were being declared husband and wife, in a final moment of euphoria and happiness, they ran away screaming in joy. I was laughing so hard that I had trouble holding my camera properly.   The reception that followed was held in amazing taste as lights and flowers were selected by a talented profess...

Stunning engagement session - Marcelo & Priscila

Marcelo proposed to Priscila in front of their closest friends and family, only a month before their trip to Punta Cana! What a suprise!At first, his idea was to do it here in Dominican Republic during our photoshoot, on a beautiful cliff at sunset. But then Marcelo realized that in the circle of all the closest friends it would be more correct and more exciting.We had an appointment of shooting when they had already arrived here. They came accompanied by Priscila's Mom and Aunt . They also selected her outfits for the photo session, helped to change the images and simply supported this beautiful shy couple with warm words and a humor.This photo session was so easy and unnoticed that we were even lost in time. Sharing photos from this shoot, I would like to show you the moments of their happiness and blessing.Venue https://www.instagram.com/littlejohnbeach/MUA  https://www.instagram.com/kislitsinaolga/ Photographer  https://www.instagram.c...

Why is it so important to choose a Professional mаke-up аrtist?

The moment of your special day has come, it's important to capture every moment and emotion, so that later when you look through the photos you can feel their warmth and amazingness.   SO… you need your make-up to look perfect in the pictures. You should shine with beauty and personality. A makeup artist can create this original and unique character within you. Unfortunately, the hotel сan sometimes put up barriers and won’t allow you to bring in your own team. The vendors that the hotel recommends you to use are not fully capable of providing professional services. Not to mention, they cost a lot and their services do not match up with the price.   What should you do in this situation?   I have been living and working as a wedding photographer in Dominican Republic for a long time, and I can advise you the best way to solve this problem. If there are issues with the hotel administration (they oblige you to pay an unbearable vendor fee)...

Touching moments

 It was a wonderful day, the wedding day of Patricia and Joe at Royalton Punta Cana Resort. As always, everything began with uncertainty and a bit of chaos--the preparation of the bride, the bridesmaids, everyone was nervous, children were running around yelling joyfully in their holiday clothes, the music played loudly  and the smell of the upcoming holiday was felt in the air. Then came the moment when they brought a wedding gift from the groom. It was a beautiful necklace with the inscription ‘Mrs.’. And it was followed by warm words on the postcard: ‘Love you so much babe, so happy for this day to finally be here, can’t wait to spent the rest of our lives together’. Love, Joe It was very touching… I’m so grateful for this opportunity, to attend and be in a place where I can experience one of the most important moments in the life of a happy couple. ...

5 reasons why
having your wedding outside the hotel is better

·         Privacy. Depending on the layout of the restaurant and how much you want to spend, most likely on this day no one except you and your guests will be there. The restaurant will only be functioning for your wedding and your wedding alone. You will be able to enjoy your event without strangers. It is quite the opposite when you book a wedding at a hotel. There, you will be given a designated area for your wedding and constantly under the sights of curious eyes that are staying there also.·         Extra payments.  In the hotels you will be obliged to pay for all outside vendors: photographers, videographers, stylists, decorators, florists, organizers, etc. Recently, this trend has become frequent and prices are rising every year. Unlike weddings in restaurants outside the hotel, there you can easily bring your staff without paying extra.·       ...

Same Sex Wedding

  This was my second experience shooting a same sex wedding. And it was so emotional. Stemming from the touching feelings inside the couple and ending with all friends and families supporting and accepting their love.    When you spend the whole day with a couple you somehow experience these moments of absolute joy. Watching and understanding what kind of relationship they have with each other, their charm, their feelings and the significance of that day. Perhaps it was my first wedding in all my experiences that I shed tears more than once. So many sincere, touching and emotional moments. Oaths giving glimpses on the skin…   You can’t NOT live this moment with them, it affects the soul. You simultaneously understand how two people sincerely and deeply love each other regardless of age, sex, or other labels.How important it is that there are people supporting you on this journey-your friends, yourfamily…Be happy, dear Minerva and Cecilia.And tha...

Romantic proposal

First of all, they flew by helicopter to the beach (so impressive!!).She didn’t even know about this surprise…he told her it will be a simple photo session, love story on the beach…nothing else…and of course there will be a sunset dinner, too.When they came everything was ready: a beautiful, romantic dinner with wine and food.They sat down at the table and started chatting, looking to each other affectionately.  It is obvious that they are in love…Later on, he left and returned sitting on a horse, holding a small box in his hands. When she turned around and saw her beloved, she could not contain her emotions of delight, and she covered her face with her hands. It was a mixture of laughter with tears, of joy and surprise.Then he came down from the horse and went up to her. He got down on one knee, pulled out the ring and proposed. They joined hands and walked down the beach. As I watched them I thought “she’s his for kee...
