We love a good sunset wedding on the beach, but this one stands out to me. I don’t think I have ever seen the ocean look so blue! At the Secrets Cap Cana resort, you have the option to say your “I do’s” in the garden gazebo or on a private beach. Both locations are beautiful but the private beach takes the cake for me. It is just so elegant and romantic! Let me show you more from a recent wedding we captured there!

Introducing the Happy Couple, Danielle & Erich

Danielle and Erich had their wedding at Secrets Cap Cana and it was truly out of a dream! It is a luxurious, adults-only resort located in the gated community of Cap Cana, about 15 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport. Danielle & Erich said their personalized vows on the private beach overlooking the turquoise ocean. It was a beautiful and romantic ceremony with a gorgeous sunset to capture their newlywed couple photos!  

This happy couple began their ceremony at 4 pm. It was early December, so this timing worked out wonderfully to capture their post-ceremony photos as the sun was setting. 

Pro Tip: To ensure you get that soft romantic lighting for your photos also known as “golden hour”, time your ceremony 2 hours before sunset!

Danielle and Erich had a hard time deciding at first if they should do a first look before their ceremony or save this special moment for when Danielle walked down the aisle. While they always envisioned things the more traditional way they also wanted to enjoy their cocktail hour with their guests without rushing their photos!

In the end, they saved this emotional moment when they met at the end of the aisle. Just wait until you see the joy in both of their faces. It was a tear-jerker for sure! Instead, Danielle opted to have a first look with her father before the ceremony, which was so special and a moment I know they will cherish forever.

Trash the Dress

Danielle and Erich decided to have a Trash the Dress photoshoot with us just 3 days after their wedding! Doing a second-day photoshoot like this is a fun way to commemorate your wedding memories and your time in Punta Cana. After all, the stress of the big day has passed and the party is over, why not take advantage of capturing more photos in your beautiful wedding attire, especially in a tropical beach paradise where you may not get the chance to wear it again?

We recommend scheduling your Trash the Dress session at least 2 days after the wedding. This break lets you unwind and recover from the big day. We’ll pick you up from your resort and take you to a stunning nearby beach where we’ll capture your photos – just the two of you this time, enjoying yourselves in a more laid-back setting.
