Of all my Majestic Colonial Punta Cana pictures this one still stands out as my favourite
A couple years back my wife in I were married in paradise at the Majestic Colonial in be-eautiful Punta Cana. We spent two amazing weeks soaking in the sun, well my wife did… my pasty skin was having none of that. Instead, I spent my spare time stretching the legs on my Nikon (aka Nik) and walking her around the resort.
About half way through, and nearly 1,000 pictures into the trip I was sipping my Banana-Mama (don’t judge, they be some pinky-goodness I tell ya) and this young couple below walked past me on their way to the waters edge. I scrambled to wake Nik up and snapped this shot. Forget the centre composition, or the beach chairs in the way… it’s the story. Photography is about story telling, I can only imagine all the stories that have led them to this point, on this beach.
I’d been married all of 5 days when this photo was taken. Watching him help her as they continued along the edge of the water had me speechless, and inspired as a new husband.
