samantha & travis. now larimar engagement. {punta cana, dr}

“After a short time, she was all I could think about. I loved her. I knew it then, I know it now and it just keeps growing for me. She’s my everything.” Travis watches his beautiful fiancee with quiet pride and adoration, as she struggles to keep her brilliant sexy hair away from her face in the playful Caribbean breeze. All the way from Downsville, Louisiana, they’ve come to celebrate their love at the wonderful NOW Larimar Punta Cana resort. It’s right next to our Los Corales community, just a short walk away!

I love that the proposal was a surprise to both of them! How so? Travis & Samantha were visiting New Orleans for a wedding and stopped at a store to look at engagement rings. Samantha fell in love with a ring there, but didn’t think much of it… Little did she know, Travis sneakily bought the ring there & then! Later that day, he confessed that the ring of her dreams would be in his possession the very next day! On the drive back, the ring somehow ended up on Samantha’s finger (she only wanted to try it on for a second) – and they both knew it’s just not going back in the box. Travis stopped at a park with swing sets, where he first realized he was falling in love with Samantha … and got down to one knee.

Just a few days ago Samantha & Travis were telling us all about the amazing food in New Orleans … and we were telling them how much we would LOVE to visit one day… and what do you know?! We just made a spontaneous decision to travel there for the ImagingUSA photography conference in just a few short weeks (Jan 14-18), we are so excited!

This is a pathway towards our house, ‘off the beaten path’! 

NOW Larimar is a blast. I would LOVE for Rob to have the leopard ones! I bet they would look great with suspenders 🙂

Travis & Samantha, hugs & kisses from sunny Punta Cana!

    What a nice and wonderful photo there. Very soothing and relaxing and natural. I’m bet the pretty lady will look even greater if taking photo with wedding dresses with sleeves on.
