Lauren & Andy were set up on a blind date by their married friends. Well done! Lauren is a photographer herself – and wanted something special and unique for their nuptials. Before the engagement ring ever graced her finger, she knew she wanted to take advantage of leap year. Andy agreed – having an anniversary every 4 years and traveling somewhere new & exotic sounded perfect! After a small ceremony back home in Texas, they splurged on the perfect honeymoon at Excellence Punta Cana. Rob & I joined them for an afternoon ‘elopement’ session all around the resort. Once you see the photos, you might call it a steamy Couples Boudoir or Intimate Portraits session! Lauren confessed that Andy just wanted to get this photo session ‘over with’ so that they could enjoy the rest of their paradise in peace – but I was really happy to learn that he ended up having a lot of fun! I mean, they did get to sip on cocktails, make out and laugh the whole time 🙂 Sweetest congrats, you two!
This was the first time we visited Excellence Punta Cana and stayed overnight. It’s an amazing resort, now among our favourites!!
Lauren – biggest congratulations on kicking your day job and following your heart into the world of photography! I’t quite a leap of faith… Day 4 and counting!
Excellence Punta Cana is the only resort here where delicious real coconut cocktails are free & readily available. Really nice touch.
There’s Rob, shielding me & the camera from the waterfall.

Poor Lauren, are you still getting the sand out of your dress? 🙂
Love this shot. A second later, the seemingly innocent wave covered them completely!!
