Pros: Responsiveness, Creativity, Honesty, Accountability, Enthusiasm
Cons: None
We had the most incredible experience working with HDC Photo at the Hard Rock Hotel in Cancun - Maureen de Vries, Abraham Montoya, and Frank Zamudio were complete rockstars. They were patient, kind, and brilliantly talented. They made us feel like we were the most special couple in the world and really captured every moment with poignant style. They exceeded our wildest imagination and went the extra mile at every turn, exceeding what was honestly expected of them. I can't more heartedly recommend this fine and delightful group! Thank you for making our wedding dreams come true!

Pros: Quality of photos/videos and the customer service
Cons: NONE
Our experience from beginning to end working with HCD Photo was fantastic.  We ordered the 5-hour photo package, the 5-hour video package and the highlight video.  The quality of the photos taken and especially the edited final videos, both the full length and 3-minute highlight reel, exceeded our expectations.  In fact, everyone who has viewed our videos are blown away by the professional quality of the editing and final production.   The customer service we received was outstanding as well.  Every email was promptly returned from prior to arriving at the resort, while at the resort, and even after we left the resort.  And in person, every photographer and videographer assigned to our wedding was kind and extremely professional.  Their team made us feel that it was more than just a job but they were each personally invested in the success of our wedding and what they captured.   We give our highest recommendation and praise to HDC Photo.  They truly provided a stress free experience and beautiful photographs and videos that will stand the test of time.  We are forever grateful.

Arnaud and his team are amazing! We were on a cruise ship for our honeymoon but wanted some professional pictures done in Jamaica. When we got to Jamaica we were met by Phillip who did our pictures. He listened to what we wanted and made us feel comfortable. In addition, he went above and beyond by showing us parts of Jamaica! About 10 days later we received over pictures and they are stunning!
Pros: All pros!
Cons: No cons!
My husband and I got married at Hard Rock Riviera Maya in September 2016 and I truly can’t say enough good things about our experience with HDC.  Maria was my initial contact and she was a dream to work with – she truly made the whole process a breeze!  She helped coordinator all the various timing needs for our big day (first look, bridal party session, bride and groom, etc) and it all worked out perfectly.  I was very impressed by her professionalism and attention to detail.  Our photographer, Antonio, did an outstanding job with our wedding photography and we are both still in “awe” of just how great all our photos turned out.  He was personable, fun, and very professional to work with.   We also were very pleased with the photography package we purchased and loved receiving all our photos on a CD before we left as well as later receiving our photobook in the mail which turned out great.  I would highly recommend HDC for any couples or families out there looking for a photographer – great people, great services, and outstanding photography!

Pros: Everything!
Honestly, I don't have enough space to write how much my wife and I really enjoyed working with HDC Photo for our Punta Cana destination wedding in October 2014. Our photographer, Miljan and video guy, Elvis were really nice and fun fellas who knew exactly what they were doing. We always felt taken care of and the way they dealt with our friends and families was first class. Plus, the pictures turned out AMAZINGLY well! I mean UNBELIEVABLY well considering they turned around both the pictures and our video in 2 days before our flight back home. We couldn't be any happier. Our friends and families also adored the pictures. As well, for the amount of photos and video you get, cost-wise it's a great amount of value. If we were to get the same packages back home easily we'd be paying close to $4000-5000 and still waiting for our pictures for a year. But you know what? I'm a firm believer a business is good or bad because of the people at top of it. The owner, Arnaud is a fantastic man who truly values customer service. During our researching stage, every time we e-mailed him a question, he was always quick to respond. Even after we signed on, he was always willing to help. When we finally met Arnaud in person to select what photos we wanted printed, he was very patient as it took us quite some time to make our decisions. Overall, we highly recommend HDC Photo. They deliver a great product on time and at reasonable prices and they actually take care of you!   Arnaud, Miljan and Elvis, take a bow gentleman, you all did an exceptional job! Bravo!

Pros: Everything you are looking for
Cons: None
This company offers great professionalism, great service and amazing pictures. We booked both video and photos from Arnaud and every single picture is breathtaking. We did our wedding at Dreams La Romana and the photographer was very familiar with the place and shot great pictures from angles we did not even think about. They delivered the pictures and the video in 3 days as promised. If you are looking for reliable service, amazing pictures and on budget this is the one :)

Pros: Price, quality, staff was amazing
Cons: None
We got married at Kukua Restaurant in Punta Cana on November 25, 2015. We were originally supposed to get married on November 24 but due to the majority of our group catching gastro, we had to postpone the wedding and HDC accommodated this last minute change with no questions!

From the beginning, all communication with Arnaud is FAST. By this I mean I usually had a response within minutes. If longer than minutes, it was just a few hours and I sent A LOT of messages.

We purchased a photo and video package and I cannot express just how happy we are. Our pictures are beautiful, our photographer was a dream to work with. He interacted amazingly with our guests and everyone enjoyed him. We also did a TTD shoot with him a few days later and these pictures were also amazing. I cannot say enough good things about HDC. We met with a representative a few days later right at our resort where we went through and picked our photos. They were all hand delivered to us along with our DVD at the resort before we returned home.

Pros: Professional, affordable and great to work with
Cons: Nothing!!
We cannot highly recommend HDC enough!! We used them for our wedding photography and video at Moon Palace in Cancun on the 31st March 16.

We had read many excellent reviews for HDC but they were mostly for Punta Cana not Cancun so I wasn’t sure whether it was better to go with a more local photographer….but I loved the work that I had seen HDC do for other weddings and after researching 3 photographers we chose HDC (they advertise on their website that they do weddings in Cancun and many other places)

Arnaud was great from the very first contact we had, always replying quickly and explaining everything. He also kept in touch with me after the wedding day and gave us access to our online pictures and also ensured we received our printed pictures before we left Cancun.

On the day of our wedding Carmelo, Santiago (and one other person whose name I have forgotten… Sorry!) were just amazing, they were so fun to work with and we felt like they were friends by the time they left! They had some great ideas of what photos to take and we had some family traditional pictures, some great fun ones and some very artistic shots too! They captured our special day perfectly for us.

We were so glad we chose HDC and our pictures and video are just amazing and have given us a lifetime of memories. Not everyone was able to travel with us to Mexico from England so it was great that they could see the pictures and everyone was so impressed and commented on how gorgeous they were.
Pros: Everything!!! Amazing photographs and professionalism!
Cons: None - everything was exceptional!
I read many photography reviews prior to booking HDC for our wedding at Hard Rock in Punta Cana on April 14, 2016.  We ultimately decided to book HDC because they had many great reviews and the price was very reasonable and a lot less than many other photographers in the area.     In December, we received an email from Arnaud, informing us HDC had become the preferred vendor for Hard Rock, but since we had already signed a contract they would honor what we had or we could change our package to one the resort was offering.  We decided to keep our current package, but I must admit I got a little worried.  I was afraid the quality of HDC's work would go down.  The prior photography company for Hard Rock had horrible reviews and I was fearful this would happen to HDC, but thankfully, I worried for no reason at all!!  HDC was absolutely amazing!!   A few days before our wedding we met with a woman who works for HDC and Arnaud.  We reviewed the wedding timeline and made a few changes.  I also mentioned a few specific shots I wanted and showed them the examples.   On our wedding day, Milan showed up a few minutes early and got to work.  He was very pleasant to work with and he worked incredibly hard!  I wanted many photos around the resort property and Milan did what he could to accommodate every request I made.  He is a true professional and great at what he does!!  Many of our guests were blown away with his work and even commented that they have never seen a photographer work so hard!!   Two days after our wedding we went to the HDC office at Hard Rock and received a CD with our photographs.  They turned out fantastic!!  There are so many wonderful shots, it is difficult to chose which ones are my favorite!!  I can't believe I even spent a minute worrying about the quality of their work, because HDC and Milan were amazing!  I would recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer in Punta Cana!!

Pros: professional, fun, affordable, friendly and very accommodating!
Cons: nothing!
We are extremely happy with the pictures that we got back from HDC photography from our wedding. When you hire a photographer you are always a little unsure of how the pictures are going to turn out especially when you are not on familiar grounds but Arnaud really put me at ease. He answered all of my questions and went over and above to make sure that I wasn't stressing about the photos. On the day of the wedding he was really fun and professional, guiding us through to make sure we got the prefect shots. When we got back from our honeymoon he had already had our pictures ready for us to have. On the day of the wedding you aren't really thinking about how to pose or what pictures you want but he made sure that we got all the pictures we had wanted all while looking good and staying on schedule. Not only was HDC so amazing but was also very affordable and I would recommend him to everyone of my friends who is looking to have a destination wedding!!! We are so pleasured with everything and beyond impressed with the talent of HDC photography.

Pros: affordable, experienced, talented, great quality, customizable packages, quick delivery.
Cons: none
I hired HDC be the photographer and videographer for our wedding on 01/30/16.  I choose this company based on previous reviews and I couldn't be more pleased with the HDC staff and their talent! Arnaud was our main contact leading up to our wedding and he was absolutely wonderful. He was quick to communicate and just a real pleasure to work with. We were very pleased with how he worked with us and our budget to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. Arnaud answered all of our questions and made sure we were comfortable with our decision.    Gaston & Elvis is who we worked with on the day of the wedding. They were both phenomenal. Our pictures look like they belong in a bridal magazine thanks to these guys. We had so much fun watching the wedding video and couldn't believe how great the quality was. They are extremely talented and I would highly recommend any future brides to use them. They captured every shot we asked for and more while sticking to our schedule to make sure the day ran smoothly. Our photos were edited and delivered to us within days. This company is experienced, professional, and unbelievably talented!  We are so thankful we chose them!!

We really couldn't be happier with service and quality of photos we received from HDC.  Everything was amazing! Do yourself a favor and don't go through your resort when scheduling a photographer.  HDC made the process of using a third party extremely simple and we obviously saved the upcharges the resort charges by booking direct!   Stef and Dave

Pros: Awesome quality. Good pricing.
Cons: None
I LOVED HDC we had Milan as a photographer and a really great videographer also that i cant remember his name.. oops. We LOVED our photos and video. The pricing is reasonable and you get so much for your money. Also very nice people to work with. The communication is very quick also! Which is so nice when planning a destination wedding. You want people that will respond to your emails in a timely manner. I highly recommend. BEST part we got our photos and video before we left the country.

Pros: Professional, friendly
Cons: None
Milan was our photographer for our beach wedding and he did an amazing job!  We absolutely love these photos and had a hard time picking our favorites. He was excellent at posing us and using the backgrounds to create breathtaking photos. Everyone that has seen our pictures has commented on how extraordinary they are. We met with Arnaud to look through our pictures and he was very patient while we took our time looking through them. I would highly recommend HDC for you photo shoot, they truly exceeded our expectations!

Pros: Fabulous Wedding photographs! Excellent Quality and Professional service
Cons: None
Thank you so much HDC! This company is fantastic! We have so many incredible photographs of our special day and couldn't be happier with both the service and product we received. Arnaud and Milan were amazing and the pictures are FABULOUS! We have nothing but positive things to say about HDC Photography! Our photographs were ready for us to view before we left the resort which was a huge plus!  We decided to hire an external photographer for our wedding as the prices for the packages through the resort were very expensive. For a photographer of this quality in Canada you would pay 3x-4x the price. The value of the packages provided are outstanding and the quality is exceptional. Thanks so much!

Pros: Personable, knowledgeable, and thorough
Cons: There are none
Words cannot describe how amazing this company is. We had the pleasure of working with Milan as our photographer and Elvis as our videographer. They are both so great to work with and very pleasant. Milan knew exactly what poses to do and he didn't even hesitate to even think about what to do next. He is a natural and a brilliant photographer. We are beyond happy with our pictures. Elvis was also very great as well. We don't have our video back yet as the wedding was only last week but I can imagine that they video will also be amazing. I will happily recommend HDC for any brides looking for a photographer in Punta Cana for their wedding. Keep up the great work guys.

Pros: Breathtaking pictures
Cons: Not being able to have them in the US for other events
I had the pleasure to work with this vendor for a photo session in our wedding attire. I had the pleasure to work with Miljan as our photographer and he was absolutely amazing. All our pictures came out beautiful. There hasn't been one person who has seen the pictures and did not like. He is very dedicated and has a passion for what he does. He would do all the work for us and had the best poses. He was also very friendly and made the whole experience a breeze for 2 people like us that are very shy. They have very good prices and the quality of work is SUPERB! We got our pictures 3 days after the shoot and had the pleasure to meet with Arnaud to pick our final shots. At the end, I ended up picking almost all of the pictures since it was so hard to pick and choose. Arnaud is very friendly as well and treated us very well. Thank you so much for our wonderful pictures and memories that we will have for a lifetime!

Pros: Your photo's will be amazing!
Cons: You will regret it if you don't use HDC
I have nothing but positive things to say about HDC Photography!  Arnaud and Charlie were amazing, and made our day so much better!  The pictures are FABULOUS!  I decided to go with a photographer outside of our resort, and couldn't be happier with the result!  Arnaud was very quick in communicating with me the entire time, which is a big plus in the DR.  We decided to go with the videography service at the last minute, and you should do it too.  Our video is so sweet and special.  Our wedding photos were ready to be viewed before we left the resort which was so awesome!  We are so grateful for Arnaud and Charlie.  Thank you both for your hard work and professionalism, we are so happy with our photo's! One last thing....  A photographer this great would charge you 5K plus in the US.  The value of the photo and video packages is outstanding!

Pros: Fast Response Time, Reasonable Prices, Flexible
I have nothing but good things to say about HDC Photography! We decided at the last minute to hire an outside vendor for our renewal of vows ceremony that took place at Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana. After looking online for a few minutes I kept seeing the name and how great they were. I took a chance and emailed them 2 weeks before the ceremony and got a response back in a matter of minutes stating they were available on the date we chose. Arnaud was very easy to communicate with and he tailored our package for exactly what we wanted in the package without having to spend a ridiculous amount of money. On the day of the ceremony we met with Charly the photographer. Charly was great! He knew what we wanted and made sure to capture it all and even gave us additional ideas for photos and they turned out great. Overall, we are very happy with the experience and the photos. I can't thank them enough for capturing our special day. If you are on the fence, do it! You will not regret it.

My fiance and I chose HDC based on the stellar reviews we read online. I initially wondered if they could really live up to the incredible reviews and hype. We scheduled an engagement photo session with them as we'd be in the DR ironing out wedding details. I went in with high expectations and I can honestly say that HDC far exceed both of our expectations. Milan is an amazing photographer with a great eye. He is also extremely friendly and easy to work with. He immediately put us at ease and we both ended up really enjoying the experience. The photographs were so perfect and we couldn't be happier with the result. Arnaud could not be more pleasant to work with. He is always extremely prompt with his responses and makes the process so smooth. On top of all of this the price is extremely reasonable. For the product they are offering I would have expected the price to be much higher. Our wedding is coming in two months and although we have mounting stress on a number of issues I'm very happy to say the photography is not something we need to think twice about. If you're looking for wedding photography I can't imagine finding a better company to work with. Thank you, HDC:)

Pros: Budget friendly, exquisite photos
My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with the work HDC produces. We saw previous work Milan did and I knew he was exactly the kind of photographer we needed. Arnaud from HDC was such a pleasure to work with, he always got back to us immediately. The photos and video came out better than we imagined. They are very good at what they do, and i couldn't recommend anyone better then HDC. They provide great service and the prices I believed were extremely descent. I feel i got my moneys worth and more. It was so hard to choose 200 photos from 638 amazing photos. The video was edited very well, it flowed perfectly. The video captured all the important parts of our wedding day. Every time i watch it, it brings happy tears to my eyes. I highly recommend HDC to any and everyone. Thank You HDC for everything, it was truly a pleasure working with you all.    The Slaughters

Pros: Professionalism, friendly, talented, attentive
Cons: None
Working with HDC photo was one of the best experiences my husband and I have ever had ,from the first moment that we emailed them to the time we picked up the pictures it was a true pleaser working with them. on the day of our wedding Charlie the photographer showed up on the beach and captured every moment we could think of, I had given a list of all the specific shots we wanted ahead of time, he got them all and many more. You can tell Charlie really enjoyed his job, he was so accommodating to our wants and excited about taking pictures. Our wedding was on a Thursday, on Saturday am we met with arnuaud (who was also extremely nice and professional) we looked through about 500 pictures and picked out our 200 or so prints , it was so hard to choose because they were all great!! we had them by Saturday night, along with our wedding video a ,disc with all of our pictures and our online gallery is already up and running. All of our friends and family are raving about the pictures and say they are some of the best photos they hVe ever seen. They were even able to capture great shots of our 3 year old son, and anybody who has little children' knows how difficult this can be! Do yourselves a favor, look no further and use hdc photo for your wedding or special event. Again, I cannot say enough good things about them.

We used HDC for our wedding in La Romana Dominican Republic. I was very impressed by their process. They responded to all my emails promptly which you usually do not get in the DR. They were on time the day of our wedding and took amazing unique pictures. Our photographer was so nice and made us feel so comfortable. I would definately recommend them to anyone. Great pricing too!
