Carol & Brendt 

Punta Cana | Dominican Republic

October 2016



It’s amazing & crazy how things in life can work out…

I met Carol & Brendt five years ago when we all worked at The Cheesecake Factory. That was before they were together…when Carol would tell me how much she liked Brendt…how sweet & cute he is. When I was going to school for Photography, Carol modeled for me & all I had to do was say his name & that smile would not go away! You could instantly tell that they had chemistry…it was the cutest thing in the world!

Now five years later, those smiles & eyes towards one another have not changed a bit!

They chose an AH-mazing resort & I mean crazy beautiful. Dreams Palm Beach in Punta Cana which had beautiful beaches & pools surrounded by palm trees as well as a staff that were all so insanely friendly. Along with the music & all the spanish being all made you feel the beauty of being in a Latin country! 

Their friends & family came from all over the world to see them become Mr. & Mrs. Harris. Seriously, all over the world…from Bolivia to the U.S. to Japan! It was such a fun filled wedding with so much energy! And so much crazy awesome dancing with so many great guests that all seemed to really enjoy themselves & were so happy for these two. One of my favorite things about documenting weddings is getting to spend time with friends as well as meeting so many great people who make me feel like I’m a guest, not just a photographer.

It is a lot harder to select images to share for a blog than you would imagine! With so much love, fun guests & amazing fun it was so hard to only pick a couple handfuls….I might have to do a blog just on receptions since they are so much fun 🙂

I can’t say enough how much of an honor it was to document their magical wedding. It’s been so sweet & endearing to see their love blossom & grow. I am so thankful for these two for allowing me the opportunity to travel to a beautiful paradise with their friends & family to document their union <3

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Harris!
