Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Wedding in Dominican Republic

The day before departing for the Dominican Republic I went to B&H for small, compact camera. I wanted something light, but I didn't need 4K video, but I did want superior looking still photographs, full manual capabilities, a fast, fixed, wide aperture lens and the freedom to do whatever I wanted. I looked at several different brands, including Nikon, Olympus Pen and Fugi - finally deciding that Fugi was perfect for what I wanted to do.

Landing miles away from home at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in the Dominican Republic with no gear, nothing except my new Fugifilm X70 - was amazing. I didn't have any extra camera equipment, no speed lights, no camera bags, no contracts, no schedules and no worries.

I was there for my best friend Nicole's wedding, as a bridesmaid.  We stayed at the Hard Rock Casio for a week. The whole bridal party and I hung out by the pool sipping pina`coladas, enjoyed white sandy beaches, beautiful weather and each others company. What I would give to back there right now! Here's a few shots from the week.
