Behind The Scenes | Punta Cana Trash the Dress Shoot Bloopers

I decided to share a few behind the scenes images from my trash the dress photo shoot from Punta Cana.  Often times us photographers make things looks so easy, but it’s so so so far from the truth! This shoot was actually quite challenging because:

  1. we need to dodge all the people that were also on the beach
  2. not getting my equipment wet <– this was probably the hardest one haha
  3. not being swept away by the waves
  4. timing the waves

There were a gajillion people on the beach at that time and we’ve already picked out a location that had ‘fewer’ people.  I really had to angle myself properly to make it look like they are on an island all to them selves!  It was actually quite a wavy day, so as I stepped out into the ocean, the waves would inch higher and higher and eventually it would touch the bottom of my camera backpack.  I stored all my lens at the top compartment to keep it try, and switching lens was a tough one!

 

The photo below shows an example of timing the waves haha.  I told them that I wanted a photo of the water just coming around them, but little did we know that the waves would actually just cover them completely!

The photo below took a while to achieve as well haha, because the waves kept coming in and out!  Pretty darn hilarious haha!

The sunset glow was unreal!!!  The pinking purple tint was all due to the sunset glow!  I really wanted this romantic shot below with a bit of water around…and mother nature decided to hit us with a massive wave!!
