Punta Cana “vacation” shots!

Hello everyone! As some of you already know, I’ve just returned from spending an amazing time at this 4 and half beach resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic: Gran Bahia Principe.

Aside from all the great weather and the fun times spent with my wife and kids, I took advantage of being there to capture some destination style photography. I think I went totally nuts with my camera as you can see and I now need a little vacation from my vacation.

I did what I love doing the most which is photographing people in love, except this time it wasn’t at the streets of Montreal, it was at the beach, baby!

Every day I went out for a couple of hours at dawn and right before sunset walking back and forth on this most amazing white fine sandy beach, asking cute couples to pose for me. Mostly I got “no-thank-you” and some “are-you-crazy” responses, but a few couples and some singles who could tell how passionate I am about photography agreed to let me take their photos which I am glad to be able to share with you here.

Check out  these shots and take a few seconds to let me know what you think in the comments please:

This couple is from Argentine

From Germany

Mirna from Montreal, Canada

Chris and Eduardo from Italy. Scroll down to see this sexy couple's photo session which I shot at sunrise a few days later.

Vicky and Mark are From England. Something about them walking on the beach wearing those cool hats caught my attention.

He is from Liverpool and she is from Scottland

One of the people responsible for keeping the beach tiedy.

This here is Megan and, hmmm, what was her name... Katie. 🙂 From the US of A.

I saw Kris and Eduardo on the beach each morning at sunrise and I offered to do a romantic session with them before I left. I am very happy with how their photos turned out.

And finally, this beautiful couple from Montreal Canada, Jimmy and Slavia, who I bumped into on several occasions on the beach. Two words can best describe this couple; SEXY and FUN.
