Swept Away – Trina and Jason

It’s been a very busy week, and through all of that I lost my inspiration. It’s really easy to lose ourselves sometimes when we are knee deep in paperwork, stuck in traffic on the 401, or fighting with our cell phones and computers. Our busy lives often consume us and we end up giving in to the day-to-day work flow.

That was until I started working on this blog post. All of my passion came flooding back. Not just because it was a wedding in the Dominican, but because of the raw emotion that we captured on this wedding holiday with amazing people. I put this all together and realized that its not what we have that makes us… its what’s inside that truly connects all the dots.

Alright, enough of the cry-fest !

This wedding was stunning!!! So simple, classy and elegant I’m not sure where to begin. We arrived in Punta Cana and stayed at the Melia Caribe Tropical resort. Quite possibly the biggest resort in the world however perfect for weddings and so much to do while you are there. Lets just say that this Newfie-Portuguese wedding definitely made their mark in the sand while they were there… I was afraid that the island would run out of alcohol at one point.

A tropical island, great friends, a wonderful family… so much to be thankful for… thats where inspiration comes from.

Enjoy – Thank you Trina and Jason for everything what an honor to spend that time with you. We look forward to the first year anniversary same time, same place. Vamanos Vamanos!

    I’ve seen your work from other pictures but you guys have definitly outdone yourselves.
    I’m totally @ loss for words and can’t explain how beautiful this is.
    It’s amazing how you captured the emotion and memories in every picture and your opening description is nothing but the truth.

    I agree with Kassandra and wish we were back in the DR with everyone and having nothing but fun in the sun with unlimited Mamajuana !!!!!!

    I love every picture…… AMAZING work Clint & Shawn !!!!!!!

    • Thanks Crystal! This whole wedding meant so much to both of us; and it was made even better by meeting such awesome people on the way :) It’s definitely one for our record books…it tears my heart open every time I look at these, but then heals it back up a few photos later :)

    They say good things come to those who wait, and By’ God, I hit the jackpot!!!!

    It’s easy to come back from a beautiful vacation and lose yourself in the city life. Since the wedding, I have barely had time to sit down and think about the whole experience. These pictures just brought me to another time, another place…I can’t quite put into words what I am feeling right now. Clint, Shawn….you have captured the raw emotion of that day. You have brought to life the whole experience for us and we will have these memories FOREVER. This means so much to Jason and I. We will have these pics to show our children one day and that is something special.

    I think I speak for everyone when I say we appreciate all of the hard work you two have put into these photos. I know it wasn’t easy having to shoot a wedding in 34 degree weather with the sun shining at your face all day, but you came through for us 110% You make an outstanding team that can’t be reckoned with. I am so proud to know you and have you as my friends. From the bottom of my heart, I LOVE U! XoX
    Thank you for making the best day of my life even better for being there.
