(Rated 5 stars with 46 reviews)
Rated #9 of 110 Photographer Reviews on BDW

We are Renaud and Severine, two young Europeans who started working in the Dominican Republic as photographers in 2000 and who created their own company four years ago.

Led by our passion for photography, we quickly realized that we wanted to offer a more personalized and professional service than the traditional "resort" picture that can be found in most of the places here and are now offering the same quality that you would find in your own country. The only difference is that we are onsite and have a lot of experience in beach weddings.

You can contact us for more information about pricing and we hope to meet you soon here in paradise!

Pros: On time, lots of pictures, team of 2, patient, willing to meet before event, high quality pictures
Severine and Renaud are the absolute best! They made sure to capture every moment of our special day. I traveled to Punta Cana a few months prior to the wedding and I contacted them while I was there and they had no problems meeting with me and showing me some of their work. I appreciated this so much because I contacted them so last minute!  During the wedding you could barely feel them but they definitely made sure to capture he entire thing. They are amazing!  They are both so sweet and you c

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
I wish I could give more than five stars to these amazing photographers! Theres a lot of stress on your wedding day about looking your best, and with my confidence I was not looking forward to being photographed: but Severine and Renaud showed up and were the most professional caring photographers ever, even showing me a quick photo to reassure me I looked good on camera! Renaud captures memories and moments so perfectly you barely notice he's taking a photo, you just see these amazing moments l

Pros: easy going, accommodating, reliable, good pricing, lively, colourful yet classy pics, truly professional
Cons: none
Choosing the right wedding photographer for your special day is a big deal and I definitely invested tons of tons into finding mine. After countless hours of searching the web, reading reviews, comparing prices, etc I decided that Photosouvenir are the photographers to be! And OMG I'm so grateful now that I made such decision. They responded to all of my emails right away (and believe me I bugged them a lot before we went to PC!), provided all the answers I was looking for and really made me com

Cons: none
If you are having a wedding in Punta Cana and you are stressing out about a photographer, then put your worries to rest and hire Severine and Renaud!  They are an absolutely lovely pair who compliment each other. Their work speaks for itself and we are very pleased with the outcome.    We hired Severine for our wedding which took place on June 2, 2015 at the JellyFish restaurant in Punta Cana.  Prior to the wedding, Severine was very responsive to our emails and addressed all of our concerns.

We are so happy we chose Photo Souviner, Seerine & Rodrigo did such an amazing job. Communication with Seerine before was great, she replied promptly and we sent ALOT of emails. She was always more than helpful during the whole planning process. She made everything so easy. When we first met them, they were so kind and out going. Seerine stayed with the girls as we got ready, and Rodrigo took pictures of the guys. They made us all feel so comfortable, and at ease. All the pictures felt natur

Cons: NONE!!
If you're looking for a wedding or engagement photographer in Punta Cana, look no further.  Renaud of Photo Souvenir is your man!  This review is to describe the great lengths he went to, to make my secret marriage proposal a success.   I came across Renaud's profile while I was looking for a photographer to secretly photograph my marriage proposal.  I liked his portfolio, and reviews, and reached out to him.  He responded immediately, which was a good sign.    Since this was my first trip t

I am very picky about my photography! Choosing Photo Souvenir as our photographers is probably the best decision I made during the wedding planning process. They are amazing!!

Pros: Professional, Creative, Experienced
Cons: None
My husband and I got married in Punta Cana in Dominican Republic in December 2014. We are so happy to have hired the Photo Souvenir Photographer Severine and Renaud and not only for our wedding day but  also for the underwater trash the dress photo session in a beautiful crystal clear lagoon couple of days after. They made us feel like a star and so comfortable. We didn't meet them before the wedding day but they have such warm and friendly personalities that we felt comfortable right away. They

Pros: Professional, Experienced, Easy to work with, Fun to be around
Cons: Cant think of a single one!
We asked Renaud and Severine to photograph our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made for our special day. From the outset, they were easy to communicate with, honest and straightforward. We had concerns about getting a local photographer without having met them or any known anyone who has dealt with them. After researching online and checking out their work, we were optimistic. They exceeded all our expectations!   They were very specific about what to expect, which was a relief

Pros: photograpers with heart, professional and pay attention to detail, loved the quick responses every time I emailed them.
Cons: NONE!!!
Amazing!!!!!! If you are looking for exceptional wedding pictures, look no further! Photosouvenir is simply amazing. Owner’s Renaud and Severine are awesome to work with, and pour their hearts into their work/craft. From the moment we decided to call photosouvenir, the customer service and attention to details from the two partners was spot on. Severine helped us reserve everything, and answered all the questions we had prior to using their company for our wedding. She was very polite, and respo

Pros: Photosouvenirs are passionate artists that deliver unique + quality work down 2 every last detail!
Cons: None!!
My Husband and I got married in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic on July 19 the Majestic Colonial Resort and when looking for a Punta Cana based photographer, we came across Photosouvenirs. We were looking for something authentic and unique, as my husband is Dominican and we travel frequently to DR, and Photosouvenirs had the quality work we had long envisioned! We opted with the 12 hour package that included coverage from 2 hours before the big day until the end of the reception + TTD Session. TT
Pros: CREATIVE, professional, personable,
Cons: NONE! They are seriously amazing!!
I had the pleasure of having Photo Souvenir (Severine & Renaud) photograph my wedding on June 9, 2014. A year and a half prior, I scoured the internet looking for a photographer to shoot my wedding at the Majestic Colonial Resort & Spa. Once I discovered Photo Souvenir, I knew I had to have them and booked them right away! Severine and Renaud photographed my wedding day and Severine photographed my Trash the dress session the day after the wedding on June 10, 2014. In addition to being t

Pros: Talented, creative, high quality pictures, amazing value for money, excellent communication
Cons: That they dont live in North America to get photos by them every year
I got married on March 25 in Punta Cana, D.R. and was lucky enough to have Severine and Renaud booked! After searching through many of the photographers in the Dominican for our wedding we got quotes from several and talked to MANY, however we chose Severine and Renaud for our special day and HANDS down the BEST choice ever! From the moment we first talked to them, we felt at ease and knew we were dealing with talented professionals. Other photographers were strongly pushing us to do things in

Pros: Professional, creative, adaptable, kind
Severine was our photographer and she did such an amazing job! She showed up early to scout out the venue and to make sure that we got photos in the best possible places. Alex and I both felt very comfortable with Severine taking photos and she captured the important moments. She even stayed on past the time that she was supposed to leave so that she could get some photos of our first dance which we had not gotten around to yet! Severing did a great job editing our photos and sent them to us o

Pros: Professional, Friendly, Organized, Timely....all around FABULOUS!!!
Cons: Not a single thing!!
If you are looking for a wedding photographer in Punta Cana, look no further! My husband & I were married at the Excellence Punta Cana resort on June 6, 2014 & we are absolutely in LOVE with our pictures...as well as with Reno and Severine!!!   Planning a wedding is very stressful (as I am sure you know)...and even more so when it comes to a destination wedding! Between the long distance coordinating and wondering how things will turn out, it can be a headache. Let me assure you, you w

Pros: everything! Amazing photographer, beautiful, perfect pictures
Cons: absolutely none
My husband and I went to Punta Cana for our honeymoon and had a photo shoot with Severine while we were there.  It was AMAZING...she was so much fun, so relaxed and easy to work with.  Severine was great about communicating with us before our trip to make sure all the details were set before we even left New York, and was very flexible about changing times the day of the shoot to accommodate the changing weather, making sure we got the best pictures possible.    Our pictures are absolutely stu

Pros: Professional, Experienced, Accommodating, Creative, Enjoyable to work with!
**Booking PhotoSouviner for your photography will be one of the best decisions you make, you will be more than satisfied with what you get in return**       I cannot express how happy my husband and I are with our experience with PhotoSouvenir!  We got married at the Majestic Elegance on February 28, 2013 with 80 of our family and friends!   Destination weddings can always be a bit scary and pictures mean more than anything- as those are what keep the memories alive.  Once I took a look o

Pros: Easy to work with, Amenable, Talented
Cons: None!
Renand and Severine were an absolute joy to work with.   First, they were very accommodating to a change in our wedding plans. When our flight to the DR was delayed because due to a snow storm, Renand and Severine were happy to adapt to the change in our wedding date.    Second, during the wedding ceremony and photo session after, Renand kept my husband and I relaxed, laughing, and comfortable as we walked down the beach and explored different areas of Excellence at Punta Cana. The results w

Pros: Professional, Knowledge of local area, Creative, Genuine, Personable
Cons: none for us
Hi Everyone, We used Photo Souvenir for our December 3rd, 2013 wedding at the Majestic Elegance. We decided mainly to go with this photographer because of the style that he used and the fact that he was local for the trash the dress session. We booked a number of months out and arranged to meet a couple days prior to the wedding upon arrival. The meeting itself went incredibly smoothly and I had a good feeling right off the bat. On wedding day (wedding was at the Majestic Elegance and the rece

Pros: Professional, easy to work with, english speaking
Cons: Unoriginal photos, not creative, videography is sub par at best
Hi ladies! We used Photo Souvenir for our wedding in April 2013. I have to say, they were professional (for the most part) and easy to work with, English speaking - all good qualities when dealing with a destination wedding. The best photos we received from the wedding are from the 1 hour session we had with Renaud after the ceremony while everyone was at Cocktail hour. So, in 30 yrs, we'll have nice framed shots of us, our wedding party, family, etc. I will say that during that hour Renaud di

Pros: Professional, Accommodating, Great Pictures Ideas
Cons: N/A
We got married October 4,2013 at The Excellence Resort in Punta Cana. We had a beach wedding and hired Reno's company to capture the wedding ceremony. We heard of this company thru our hotel, we checked out the website and saw how beautiful his work has been and thought it would be great. He has a booth set up with lots of examples and friendly employee's always willing to help right at the hotel. We were nervous about hiring a photographer from the Dominican, but Reno and his company made this
Pros: Our Photographer Reno Cassius was creative, with high energy, and an outstanding ability to capture the moment!! Very fun to work with.
Cons: Absolutely no cons
My husband and I were vacationing at Excellence Punta Cana. While we've already been married for 13 years, we wanted to use some of the time in Punta Cana for a destination photo shoot. Through the hotel and some of the websites, we found excellent reviews for Reno Cassius at Photo Souvenir.  He has an office located in the lobby of Excellence Punta Cana. We contacted him a month in advance, and from the first email contact, he was very responsive, answered all of our questions thoroughly and wo

Let me start by saying I am beyond grateful for every moment that was shared with Renaud, as it is because of him that I will forever be able to look back at our wedding and re-live each moment time and time again!   My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Renaud for our July 15th, 2013 wedding at The Jellyfish. He is not only humbling to work with but managed to seamlessly catch every significant moment, and then some. After speaking with him, when we arrived in Punta Cana, I kn

Pros: Creative, Professional, Easy to Work with
My husband and I got married at the Majestic Elegance in Punta Cana on Oct.22, 2012.  I was so frightened of the thought of hiring a photographer that I had never met before, but I was amazed by their work that I had found online.  From the moment they entered my room on my wedding day my fears had vanished.  They went right to work with setting up the dress photos and all the candid shots of me and my girls getting ready.  They were very nice and professional and I felt so comfortable with them

Pros: Quality, creativity, selection, professional, good price
Cons: NIL
I booked Photo Souvenir for my July 4, 2013 wedding at Dreams Punta Cana Resort. I had contemplated bringing my own photographer as I am very picky with pictures. I'm so glad I went with this company. We had hundreds and hundreds of amazing photos and for an awesome price! They had lots of creative ideas and were so nice and professional. They are really good at what they do and it shows in their work. I hardly noticed them during the reception as they are so discreet and there were so many cand
