Hey Precious! I hope your weekend was pretty awesome. I was helping a friend move house and in between moving goods we had interesting conversations. We talked about so many different topics and among our many topics were; our hopes, dreams and the blog of-course.
I told her how I’d like to see the blog bud and flourish, not just for me but for you too. To see more cultural weddings getting the press they so deserve. For Pure Wedding Blog to be the no 1 destination for couples planning two very different weddings (a white wedding and a cultural wedding) looking for inspiration, information, excellent photographers and brilliant wedding creatives.
I expressed the desire to feature styled shoots and engagement sessions from all over the world. The reason being that styled shoots are a great way to see what colour palette works well together and they are very much inspirational. I also thought that e sessions in different countries would be a great way to scout the perfect honeymoon spot’ from around the world.
Speaking of perfect honeymoon spot’ I’ve this gorgeous macao beach engagement session from the beautiful Dominican Republic. I first saw glimpses of it on instagram and to say that these two love birds left me speechless is an understatement. I’m literally blown away by the way they are with each other (so in love, like no one and nothing matters).
Behind The Lens
The insanely talented Denis Boyko from Boyko Photography. I’ve loved this man’s work for like ages and it’s with great pleasure that I get to share his incredible art. This is what he had to say about this particular engagement session.
“Alex and Danielle are getting married soon so they decided to go for their vacation to Punta Cana and to do the engagement shoot. As the location we chose the Macao beach – one of the wild beaches in Dominican Republic. Also we chose morning hours for shooting.
It is quite hard to wake up at this time, but the result worth it. Also at this time you can notice untouched beauty of this place. I love this place as it is not too crowded and so diverse in locations. And depending on time of the year you can see big waves, which will make your photos even more astonishing.
We had real fun during the shoot. Especially I remember that moment when I
suddenly stumbled across the palm and tumbled with the camera. This is all because of my desire to capture the real emotions that Alex and Danielle were showing at that moment. And thanks God that camera didn’t break down and we could continue our shooting.”
