We travelled to the stunning Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, to spend a week celebrating Laura and Tanner as they tied the knot on the sunny beaches. I had the incredible opportunity to Lead the Shoot on this breathtaking day for BMann Studios.

The week began with pre-wedding events that set the tone for an unforgettable celebration. We put on a catamaran adventure, transforming the ocean into an epic dance floor. Snorkelling sessions and encounters with flamingos added a touch of magic to this already unique experience. We also got to take on a pirate-themed waterpark day filled with waterslides and a giant wave pool. I had a blast and was told I have terrible water slide techniques from Laura's dad! 

As the wedding day came, the tropical heat came in with intensity. The weather remained stunning despite the heat, fulfilling every wish for a sunlit ceremony. The day was filled with amazing moments, including an emotional first look between Laura and her father, tears flowing freely, and even a tear in my eye. Next, their breathtaking ceremony with all-white details and the ocean view. Witnessing Laura and Tanner exchanging their heartfelt vows was so special and beautiful. When the celebration reached the reception, that energy was something I had never seen before. Every guest was up and dancing the night away in a whirlwind of joy and laughter. It was a testament to the bonds of friendship and family. 

This experience was more than just capturing moments; it was a journey of personal growth and profound gratitude. It marked a significant milestone, not only in professional achievement but also in personal fulfillment. As the trip drew to a close, it left me with infinite memories and a renewed sense of wonder for what was to come in the future.

This trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, stands as one for the books. Its stunning beaches, incredible waters, and warm hospitality create the perfect place to celebrate Laura and Tanner's wedding. I cannot thank Laura, Tanner, their family, friends and BMann Studios for trusting me to capture this day. I felt like part of the family and with a heart beyond full.
