Erika & Marcel: Engagement Shoot in Punta Cana

When Erika told me a long time ago that her and Marcel were going south for their wedding, I was really hoping that Erika would give me a shot at doing their wedding. At this point, I had yet to even photograph a wedding before, but she put her trust in me and wanted me to do it. For the past year I have been so stoked to be a part of their special day and so excited to go south with them. I have to admit, I was super nervous. Luckily, J stepped up and endured countless lessons on photography and lighting so she could help me out. Our first evening there, we headed to the beach for an engagement shoot. What a beach! Hard to take a bad picture in that place. And Erika and Marcel were game for whatever I suggested, so it was a photographer’s heaven. Plus, I had an awesome personal lighting assistant!No one holds a light like you J!  Here are a few shots from their engagement shoot at the beach and in the gorgeous lobby at the Majestic Elegance in Punta Cana.
