Destination Trash the Dress Photography: Higuey, Dominican Republic

Dana and Matt chose the Dominican Republic to have their wedding as it would bring together all their friends and family. Being that I had my own wedding in Antigua, Guatemala the closeness and quality time you get to spend with loved ones is priceless.

The day before the wedding, we went to Higuey in the Dominican Republic  to capture the local color and city life along with the cute couple in their wedding attire. We started at the famous basilica in Higüey which is a massive structure of steel and stained glass. It began to rain but that didn’t deter us! The shoot must go on!

While I was photographing Dana and Matt, a small crowd of school girls gathered to watch. I felt they were so cute so I asked them (in spanish que bueno saber español!) to pose with the bride and groom. They happily obliged and busted out a pose or two.

After the church our taxi driver took us to a private residence perched high above the city where there was soft moss, trees, and a beautiful back drop for some romantic photos. The veil is from my wedding which I love to reuse! It began to rain again so we stopped at a tourist shop where Dana and Matt bought a photo album for their post card guest album (they had guests sign post cards at the wedding which will be sent to the couple). Along with taking a shot of mysterious purple liquid.

Enough of my chatter— I am so excited to share these I had to explain a bit of the back story but onto the photos!!!

Love love this red wall outside the church.. the color and dana and matt just pop!!

Here are the girls I talked about above.. look at them strike a pose

I heart wedding veils… they really add a dynamic to a wedding photo with the way they diffuse light

Part II of the Higuey Trash the Dress session coming soon. To give you a hint, it consists of the bride and groom in a tourist market…
