Gina & Sam’s Wedding – The Day after /// Trash the Dress

Oh man… looking back at these pics 2 weeks later they still put a smile on my face.  Gi and I had a blast with Gina and Sam as we captured so many different parts of their wedding week.  By the end of the trash the dress shoot, we were all wet and covered in sand but the fun factor was so worth it.   Funny enough, I finally got a chance today to fully unpack our equipment bag and probably cleaned out enough sand to make a mini sand castle...hehe

Gina and Sam… you guys rock for willing to do anything we asked!  Here are just a handful of our favorites to tell the story of the day after shoot =)

Enjoy!

Your Friend, Leon



Here are some behind the scenes shots of my hawt wife in action... she's going kill me for posting pics up of her... hehe

Gina and Sam’s Wedding in Punta Cana!! Day 6 & 7

I’m lost for words on how exciting and fun it has been for us this week, especially last night with the wedding and today’s “trash the dress” session…(I’m going to do a proper post when we get back).  Gi and I are currently exhausted, sand filled and salt water soaked from their after shoot …. but we freaking had a blast!!!  For me… bucket list check… as I ALWAYS wanted to kill it on the beach with a couple and today was that day for me.   I truly love these guys… and what’s even more awesome was having their family and friends watch and cheer us on today for this aftershoot… Ok.. I’m jumping the gun on this entry as I just want to show one pic.. Ok.. 2…. OK fine….3

Awesome, awesome day.  Stay tuned when we get back for a full post of their wedding…

Gina & Sam’s Wedding in Punta Cana!! Day 3 – Lifestyle Session

Ok.. today’s heat is what I remembered Punta Cana to be the last time I came here… it’s hawt here… that dry sweating all day long heat… (Gi refusing to come near my stickiness….)  For the most part today, I was working on my Mac processing / editing pics…(I’m probably the only dude on this resort that’s working on a laptop outside….) While Gi was with Gina and Sam in the morning going over all the details of the wedding for Thursday.    When the evening hit…our first shoot in Punta Cana  began… Gina and Sam's lifestyle shoot.   We didn’t do one in Toronto and saved it for here.  As I’m itching to process all the pics, I think I’ll wait till we get back to Toronto to process and post the rest.   Here are 2 pics from our lifestyle session with Gina and Sam today.   Stay tuned for their upcoming wedding and trash the dress sessions … we’re totally stoked.

Gina + Sam’s Wedding in Punta Cana!!! Day 1 & 2

I am writing this blog from the sunny place of the Dominican Republic.  It is the first time I have been here so I was hit by the warmth and grandness of the all-inclusive resort of Dreams Punta Cana.   Now, you make ask why am I here?   Simple, last wedding of the season with Leon.   A great way to end off a fantastic wedding year and with a couple that Leon have known for a while, Gina and Sam.   When I first met Gina, I knew this was going to be a crazy wedding.   Since she has had a vast amount of experience as a wedding planner herself, she has organized everything to the tee.  From the favours, to the transportation, even to the juice boxes she gave to all the kids.   I mean who gets prep bags for every couple attending the wedding.   This woman is Amazing! Soooo…..Day 1 was traveling – bus to plane to bus and arriving to a beautiful resort.  Day 2 was scouting the area – finding fantastic beach scapes, enjoying the sun, and watching the family have fun beachside.  I can’t wait to see what Day 3 has to bring.

Thanks, Gi

Ola!  So we’re going to try visually story tell each days event here in Punta Cana that’s leading up to Gina’s and Sam wedding.  I’m going to get more into Gina and Sam on their wedding day when they get married but so far the past few 2 days have been awesome.   Getting to know both family’s, relaxing with Gi, and nothing beats processing pics by the pool side =)  So what have we been up to these past 2 day… I’ll let the pics do the talking.

Your Friend, Leon
