Pros: Professionnal, creative, fun and friendly!
Cons: None
My husband and I, just like our family and friends, had an AMAZING experience with Caribbean Emotions. The photographer was really nice and really professionnal. It didn't feel like we just met him and we loved every second of the experience we had. Our wedding was at Majestic Elegance and he knew all the hot spots to take some awesome pictures!!! If we do another event in the caribbeans, be sure that we'll contact them!!!
Pros: dedicated, fast worker, hard worker, captures all the important memories
Cons: none!
Video was important to my husband and he was the one who wanted to pick the videographer. He poured over YouTube videos of all the videographers in the Punta Cana area and picked Pascal’s videos (by Caribbean Emotions).   Pascal is amazing. I asked him to come just before 6am to capture the sunrise ceremony and then around 4pm to capture some getting ready before the reception and to stay until 10pm. He showed up super early for the sunrise ceremony and captured some getting ready of me in the
Pros: easy going, professional, customer-oriented
Cons: None!
I can't say enough good things about Michael and Caribbean Emotions. From day one he was very quick to respond to communication on the internet and made sure everything was sorted out well in advance. During the wedding Michael was so well prepared and professional. My family members all commented afterwards how much they loved him and how easygoing he was with instructing us with poses. Michael definitely works well with people. It is clear he takes pride in his work and knows how to capture wh

Pros: Professionalism, Great Price, Prompt Delivery of Photos, Great Style and Unique Photos
Cons: NONE
Working with Caribbean Emotions was much easier than I thought. Making sure you choose the right photographer can be a very difficult part of planning a wedding, especially when that photographer is in another country. All throughout the process, the communication with Caribbean Emotions was professional and prompt. Never once did I have a question left unanswered. When we arrived to our hotel in Punta Cana they reached out to me to make sure we made it safe and to set a time of arrival for our

Pros: friendly, punctual, professional, reasonably priced, AMAZING photo's
Cons: None
We used Caribbean emotions for our wedding day at the ocean blue and sand resort in Punta Cana in September. I booked via email and paid a deposit via paypal, all very straight forward. The day of the wedding Michael rang my room and said he would meet me in the spa, he arrived and was so friendly i immediately felt at ease, he then took pictures of me getting ready alone and with my bridesmaids, he made some fantastic shots from my flowers and jewellery and got an amazing shot of our 2 year old

Pros: punctual, easy to work with, fun, creative, quick
Cons: none
My husband and I got married on August 24, 2013 in Punta Cana on the beach at the Majestic Colonial Resort. Michael Weiler did an amazing job! He was easy to get a hold of from day one, and even called my hotel room the day before the wedding just to confirm where he was to meet us the next day. He was with us two hours prior to the wedding, during the ceremony, and took amazing photos of all of us after the ceremony. He seemed to get every angle and took pictures of every detail of our wedding

Pros: Dependability, Great Pictures, Full Copyright Privileges, Beautiful Private Beach, No Awkward Poses
Cons: They don't live in Atlanta for the wedding!
A week ago I hired Michael and Pascal to take pictures of my proposal to my girlfriend (now fiance) in Punta Cana (Dominican Republic). I talked to Michael several times on Skype prior to the date (in addition to many e-mails), and he told me several times to trust him...he was right! He was able to work with me to come up with a great plan so it was a complete surprise for her. Michael and his brother covered all of the details, showed up on time, and were great guys to talk to on the way to th
Pros: Professional and passionate, great attention to detail that will make your wedding day so special, awesome poses and shots
Cons: None! Everything Michael did for our wedding was amazing and we cannot thank him and Caribbean Emotions enough
AI cannot recommend this company enough! Great packages and prices and Micheal is on top of everything! You do not need to worry when working with this company they make sure to take shots you would never even think of and they look so beautiful! The photo session includes getting ready, groom getting ready, ceremony and pictures afterward! Then you meet with Michael the day after and he has a lovely DVD ready with copies of all your digital pictures (or actual prints depending on the package y

Pros: Fun, realiable, on time, amazing photos
Cons: That Pascal lives in Punta Cana. I wish you lived in NY!!! I would hire you for everything!
My wedding photos are AMAZING! Every one that I show my wedding photos to say that they look like postcard picture lol the colors are beautiful and bold the pictures look so good that they looked fake lol. Pascal was on time and so much fun to work with. We had such a good time during our trash the dress session. I"m so happy i got him to do my photos cause they are so perfect! I really have nothing bad to say. I wish Pascal lived in NY because i would hire him to do birthdays, baby showers, eve

Pros: He took excellent pictures
Cons: Didn't get all of the promised pictures-- still haven't- they are lost
Michael came to the resort and was very professional. He took great pictures of us getting ready and of the wedding. He stayed until 10PM as promised. He contacted me the following day with picture suggestions to put in the wedding book. I approved and he came the day after to deliver. He showed us the book and the wedding video. After I got home, I realized that none of the "getting ready" pictures were included in the CD at all. The pictures were no where to be found. To make matters worse, th
Pros: Friendly, Trustworthy, Professional, Fun, Amazing Pictures
We got married down in Punta Cana and were shopping around for photographers. Caribbean Emotions seemed to have the best wedding packages and we saw some of their pictures. They had great reviews so we decided to go with them. We are so extremely happy that we did because their pictures and experience is just amazing. Michael always responded to emails right away and was always very informative. Michael called us the day we arrived, gave us details on where to meet, and was very friendly. He spo
Pros: Quick, Pleasant, Funny, Affordable,
I just want to say I loved Pascal and a older guy on June15, 2013. They def. made our day wonderful. They were very pleasant and easy to work with. When I first spoke with Pascal, I told him what I wanted and he was able to deliver all of my wants he removed a bad tattoo I have on my arm on just about every picture. I have so many pictures that I adore and a wonderful video that I can't stop looking at. The videographer was awesome, we didn't even know that he was recording the entire time that
Pros: Funny, punctual, great artistic eye, exceptional and wide variety of photos
Cons: Absolutely nothing
I knew that the photos were the most important keepsake from the wedding.  We looked through several websites and found most of the pictures to be very plain and basic. However, both my husband and I loved the photos on Caribbean Emotions' website.  They came highly recommend throughout the blogs which was not surprising. All the wedding photos looked unique for each couple - not like the cookie cutter resort photos.  They were flattering, simple, and not overly stylized.      Michael was

Pros: Quality, professional
My husband and I got married on May 15th and my parents hired Michael as our Wedding Photographer. He was absolutely fantastic! He was on time, professional and made the whole day really easy. I wanted my photos to be more natural than posed, and I couldn't be happier with them. We received our prints, disc and photobook before we left the resort and they are amazing quality. I cannot recommend Caribbean Emotions highly enough - you will not be disappointed! Thank you so much, Mic

Pros: Punctual, friendly, trustworthy
Cons: I wish Michael lived closer to Colorado!
First off, I feel so blessed to have had Michael Weiler from Caribbean Emotions photograph our wedding. There are many photographers to choose from in the Dominican Republic and I emailed quite a few for samples of their work, price lists, etc. Michael went out of his way to demonstrate his talents through various galleries and the prices at Caribbean Emotions were VERY reasonable. For the amount of material we ended up with, I cannot believe it did not cost more! My wedding was at 3pm and Micha

Pros: great communication, friendliness, flexibility, value, paying deposit thru PayPal, quality of work, rights to your pictures
Cons: none
Working with MIchael & Pascal for our wedding ceremony & trash the dress experience was amazing! Both of these guys are so friendly and down-to-Earth, an absolute pleasure to work with. We were married at Dreams Punta Cana on June 21st, 2013. Everything on that day goes by so fast, I cannot tell you what a blessing it is to have all of these gorgeous pictures to relive all of the moments over and over again.  One of my favorite pictures ever, is a picture Michael captured of my groom in

Pros: On time, amazing pictures, amazing video, friendly, professional
Cons: Really can't think of any!!
AWe used Caribbean Emotions for our wedding at the Hard Rock in Punta Cana. They were AMAZING!!! We booked them to come at 12 and they were with us all day. They were on time and started to take pictures and video right away! Our wedding was on a Friday and we received our pictures And video by Monday!! Being from out of the Country I was a bit worried about who I had hired. But right when I met them I knew they were going to do great. They were so friendly and put my mind at ease. They capture

Pros: Great communication, on time, Amazing photographs
Cons: nothing
We have Michael photograph our wedding on May 10, 2013.   All of my emails & questions before our wedding we answered in a very timely manner.   The packages were very well priced and a great value.   On the day of the wedding Michael met my wedding party & I at the spa at 8:30am. He took pictures of us at the salon & then getting ready in the room. His ability to speak spanish also came in very handy as he was able to translate some things to the hairdressers for u

Pros: On time. professional beachy attire.
Cons: Money before professionalism. rush rush rush. Didn't capture all of the important part of a wedding.
When selecting Caribbean emotions I chose them more or less because they were the cheapest of all the photographers I found in Punta Cana (not a smart idea). Their videos on youtube and some of the pictures I was able to see from other brides were good enough and captured good moments, so we decided to book. The day of our wedding they captured only 2 pictures of our guests coming off the bus and the rest were of the reception and ceremony decor; I was very specific via email before the wedding
Pros: Very friendly, flexible, on time, professional, easy to work with
Cons: none.
My wife and I got married on June 7th, 2013 at Majestic Elegance.  The hotel first recommended us a photographer and videographer that they worked with.  We came to bestdesitnationwedding.com and found Caribbean Emotions just to shop around and compare packages and prices.  We made the right choice.  Michael and Pascal are very professional and work very efficiently.   These guys KNOW what they're doing.  They know the deal and work hard to make sure that everyone stays relaxed and worry free. 
Pros: Punctual, professional, easy to work with
My husband and I were married last week, July 2nd at the Majestic Elegance in Punta Cana. Michael shot our photos as well as our reception and TTD. Let me start off by saying that my mother and two of my bridesmaids were sick the day of our wedding so I was more of a basket case than usual. Michael was so professional and kept me calm. He took photos of everything I wanted while getting ready as during the ceremony. He worked his butt of during the ceremony and reception capturing pictures of
Pros: Amazing photos! So easy and fun to work! Very quick turnaround! Very quick with communication! Very reasonable prices!
Cons: Nothing!
I decided to book Caribbean Emotions for my wedding at Now Larimar in Punta Cana because I read so many great reviews on them and I could not have made a better decision!!!   From the start, they were so nice and friendly and were very prompt with e-mails, which was very important to me as I was planning my wedding all the way from Texas. I loved that if I just had a quick question, I could easily go to their website and do an instant chat with them. I always received e-mail replies prompt

I cannot rave enough about Caribbean Emotions. I was married at Now Larimar on June 8th. I reached out to Michael originally only 3 months prior to the wedding and they were still able to accommodate our schedule.  The day of the wedding Pascal arrived. He was such a joy to work with. I knew he was amazing when all of my guest kept coming up to me saying so. They all wanted to know how I found him. We also did a TTD shoot a couple days after the wedding. For anyone on the fence about doing it, I

Pros: reliable, affordable, professional, creative
Cons: none...
I hired Caribbean Emotions for videography services for my wedding at Dreams Punta Cana in May, 2013. Little did I know that Pascal would soon become not only the creator of my wedding video but also my friend! He was always in constant contact with me before, during, and after the wedding to ensure that all of my needs were taken care of. I was a bit nervous getting my hair done at the resort, and Pascal said to me "Kristin, you know this is your wedding day, you can smile..." (of course with a
