Brandi and Andre said yes recently. They arrived to Punta Cana and they booked a Saona photoshooting experience with us, to bring home nice honeymoon memories from the beautiful island. We were sure it would be a success to shoot there, as the place captures wonderfully colors in the Dominican Republic.
We picked the couple at the Reserve in Paradissus Punta Cana, and we drove to Bayahibe. They were amazed to see the country as it really looks like. We arrived to Bayahibe where our friends Hector and Michael were waiting for us after setting up the speedboat, we bought the Park bracelets and there we go, half speed to Saona in our own private boat.
The ride is of about one hour, along a shining blue turquoise sea on sunny days. At the arrival it is very easy to hop off the boat and wet your clothes a bit, so it is better not to sail with the photo session costumes on. We started the session with our couple around 15 minutes after the arrival warming up a little bit with the easiest shots. Then we started trying different things to get different a mix of results that would work for the idea we had in mind. We shot for almost 90 minutes and rested a bit to recover our strengths.
We shot the other part of the session for two more hours, trying different places and different role plays with those great guys in our wonderful natural scenario. Brandi was so excited about the photo shoot during the whole day and made great friends with Maria, that helped on this session. Andre was always helpful, setting the pace and not loosing it, and he was fantastic at following any ideas we wanted to develop.
I think it was a great day for all of us. It ended around 7 00PM at the Mirador de Bayahibe with the last sunset photos. If you want to know more of the story, you need to know how it feels and see for yourself, Saona is a great travel and photography experience.
