HI, I'M DOMINIQUE MARIE.

IF YOU LIKE RAW, INTIMATE & SOULFUL PHOTOS, I'M YOUR WING-WOMAN.

THERE IS JUST SOMETHING ABOUT CAPTURING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN TWO SOULS, AND BEING ABLE TO TELL THEIR STORY BECOMING ONE IN A PHOTO JOURNALISTIC WAY THAT FUELS MY SOUL IN A WAY NO WORDS COULD DESCRIBE. WHETHER YOU ARE ELOPING IN THE MOUNTAINS, HAVING AN INTIMATE OR YOUR DREAM DESTINATION WEDDING, I AM HERE FOR ALL OF IT. SEEING PEOPLE CELEBRATE LOVE IS VERY SACRED TO ME.

I AM HERE TO CAPTURE MORE THAN WHAT YOUR LOVE LOOKS LIKE BUT CAPTURING WHAT IT FEELS LIKE.

LIFE IS A JOURNEY,
AND IF YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH THE JOURNEY,
YOU WILL BE IN LOVE FOREVER.

IT IS ALL IN THE DETAILS










YOUR DETAILS ARE THE BEGINNING OF YOUR SPECIAL DAY. AFTER ALL THE PLANNING AND FINALIZING EVERY LITTLE DETAIL OF YOUR WEDDING DAY IT IS JUST AS IMPORTANT TO CAPTURE THE LITTLE DETAILS AS IT IS TO CAPTURE THOSE EMOTIVE IMAGES BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR SOULMATE. WHETHER IT IS YOUR DRESS, SHOES, PERFUME, JEWELRY, RINGS, BOUQUET, SUIT, TIE, VOW BOOKS, STATIONARY, WAX SEALS, AND SUCH MUCH MORE.

WHY VIVA RECOMMENDS GETTING READY SHOTS...








YOUR GETTING READY SHOTS TELLS THE STORY OF HOW YOUR DAY BEGAN. THIS IS WHEN ALL THE DETAIL SHOTS TRULY BEGIN TO BE DOCUMENTED IN A JOURNALISTIC WAY. FROM THE SMALL DETAILS DISCUSSED ABOVE TO YOUR DRESS/SUIT BEING PUT ON OR BUTTONED UP BY SPECIAL PERSON IN YOUR LIFE TO YOUR SHOES BEING PUT ON. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE KIND OF IMAGES + I AM A SUCKER FOR ALL THE DETAILS WHICH DURING YOUR CONSULTATION WE WILL CHAT ABOUT WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU. SOME COUPLES EVEN USE THIS TIME TO DO A FIRST LOOK OR A FIRST TOUCH.

FIRST LOOK + FIRST TOUCH VS DOWN THE AISLE



















THERE IS NO DENYING HOW MUCH PHOTOGRAPHERS LOVE THE FIRST LOOKS + FIRST TOUCHES. ITS NOT JUST FOR THE EMOTIVE PHOTOS WE GET TO CAPTURE BUT ALSO BECAUSE OF THE RELAXED TIMELINE FIRST LOOKS ALLOW US TO CREATE. THIS ALSO GIVES US A CHANCE TO KNOCK OUT COUPLE PHOTOS AND EVEN SOME FAMILY PHOTOS IF YOU WANT!

MAYBE YOUR NOT DOWN FOR THE FIRST LOOK, BUT OPTING FOR THE FIRST TOUCH IS SUCH A GREAT WAY TO CALM YOUR NERVES AND ALLOW YOU TO HAVE A SPECIAL MOMENT BETWEEN JUST THE TWO OF YOU. WHETHER YOU SHARE A GIFT EXCLUSIVE TO YOUR PARTNER'S EYES OR A GLASS OF CHAMPAGNE. I'LL BUILD THE ANTICIPATION OF FINDING YOUR HANDS AND ALSO GIVING YOU GUYS A FEW MINUTES ALONE WITHOUT BEING CAPTURED OR ANYONE AROUND.

IT IS ALSO PERFECTLY OKAY IF THE FIRST LOOK OR TOUCH IS FOR YOU. THE BEST PART OF PLANNING YOUR SPECIAL DAY, IT IS ALL ABOUT WHAT YOU AND YOUR PARTNER WANT.

DANCE, DANCE, AND DANCE!!!!







THERE IS NO DENYING THAT YOU ARE GOING TO WANT TO DOCUMENT ALL YOUR LOVED ONES HAVING A GREAT TIME. THESE ARE THE MOMENTS THAT MAY MAKE YOU LAUGH UNTIL YOUR BELLY HURTS AND YOU'LL BE SMILING SO MUCH YOUR CHEEKS WILL HURT. SEEING YOUR LOVED ONES THAT CAME TO CELEBRATE YOUR LOVE WITH THEIR OH-SO-GOOD DANCE MOVES OR EVEN THE OH-SO-NOT-GOOD DANCE MOVES IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING YOU DO NOT WANT TO SKIP OUT ON. PLUS, IF I AM BEING HONEST I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE ALL THE DANCING. YOU'LL MOST LIKELY CATCH ME SINGING AND DANCING BEHIND MY CAMERA WHILE I CAPTURE ALL THE BEST MOMENTS. YOU CAN ALSO OPT FOR A PRIVATE DANCE WITH NO GUESTS-JUST YOU TWO AND ME.

SET YOUR LIFE ON FIRE. SEEK THOSE WHO FAN YOUR FLAMES.

She is a Queen in front and behind the camera. Inner beauty screams from within that warm heart of hers. Be confident that, Dominique, will do everything in her power to catch every single angle you desire on your special day whether that’s on a ladder, the bare floor, or on a stair railing, that girl is going to capture it all.
