Location: Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Ashly reached out to me for engagement photos after Clinton proposed, and we had so much fun touring around our hometown of Blenheim for the session. After getting those close-to-home images, they decided to take off and get married in the Dominican! The best part? They asked me to come along to be their photographer! I was thrilled. I laugh when I think about it, and how thankful I was Ashly asked me over email. I don’t think I would have been able to keep my cool in person! While I have flown across Canada to assist photographing weddings, this was my first Caribbean destination wedding. I learned so much about travelling with my equipment it was truly invaluable. So off I went to capture their love story under the Punta Cana sunshine. The skies were so blue and clear the day of their wedding and I remember feeling the sand in between my toes while photographing the details of their very breezy, open-concept venue. They said their ‘I-do’s’ amongst swaying palm trees, and the celebrations lasted long after nightfall.
