Every couple we work with has a story. Each couple is unique, and as cinematographers we love to capture the individuality and create a piece that feels genuine.
Yury and Tom were absolutely amazing. We were lucky enough to travel to the Dominican Republic to celebrate their incredible wedding day with them both. We were immediately immersed into the festivities which began with boat party cruising through the Dominican waters in search of the perfect snorkel and swimming spots. At one point everyone cooled off in a short rain shower as the boat crew served guests traditional drinks from a floating bar. Blayre surprised everyone as the drone lifted off the boat and captured breath taking aerial views of the awesome party below, it was a fantastic day!
Next up, a wedding day to go down in the books. Fire dancing, pirate ships, lobster, to name a few highlights! The ceremony was held at Huracan Cafe just a short trip from the preps location at Now Larimar Resort. It was the ideal beach setting with little to no intrusion from unwanted tourists, beautiful soft golden sand and an incredible decor flourishing the interiors of the cafe. It was an emotional experience for everyone which soon led us through some touching speeches and eventually to an eventually to what the locals call "Crazy Hour", which is an impressive display of fire dancing and New Orleans-esque costume dance party.
We had one more thing to do before we left…. Trash the dress!!! This was particularly special as we had an opportunity to visit Hoya Azul, a hidden cenote located at the foot of a 75 foot high cliff with the most incredible turquoise waters we had ever seen in nature. Yury and Tom were such troopers as we headed off into the jungle. Yury looking gorgeous in her wedding gown from the day before, Tom, handsome and dapper. Along with the brilliant photography team, Joee Wong and James Correia, they posed on the elegant cliff and slowly worked up to a breathtaking plunge into the awesome turquoise water- it was truly magical!
We are so proud to share with you their highlights film:
