Hi Ottawa Bride! Congrats on your wedding and I'm so glad everything went extremely well! I'm that much more excited now after seeing how smoothly everything went for you and how much you enjoyed yourself. I'm even thinking now that we should think about booking the sunset cruise for our guests. I was wondering if you have any photos of the night portion of your wedding from the restaurant and beach party? My FI and I can't decide if we want to rent out a seperate venue for the party or do the beach party thing. How was the band? What type of music did they play? Had it not been for the band do you think it still would have been fun to have an ipod stereo playing the music? Thanks so much!

Hi Seaprincess!

Not sure if you're still checking the site or not, but was hoping you could help put me in touch with PhotoSouvenir!? I saw your review of them and checked out their website. I've emailed 3 times using their 'contact us' section and have tried calling a number of times. I haven't heard anything back. I would love to use them, but I'm worried that they're booked up now. My wedding is January 16, 2010 at the Grand Palladium Bavaro.

 

Thanks!

Amanda

Hi Amanda,
I had the same problem with them, haha I still haven't heard from them!
I contacted HCD, I got a reply in minutes. I've seen his work and it looks amazing. Might want to contact Arnaud. His amazing and his price are reasonable (actually they are amazing)

Courtney, Which photographer did you book with?!

Hi Amanda, I also booked with HCD. They're pics and video are spectacular. I received a quote from them within a few hours. (If you get pics, video and Trash the Dress session Arnaud gives you a discount as well). His packages offer sooo many pictures and even a photo book is mailed to you afterwards.

Hi Amanda,
I'm still on here occasionally, but I'm sorry I don't have any advice for getting in touch with PhotoSouveir. I booked them in Sept 2008 (for my Jan 2009 wedding) by email. I never had trouble getting a reply from them, but apparently they are SUPER busy now. I highly doubt they will have your date available less than 2 months out from your wedding...sorry. You can always try emailing them again (with your date in the subject line) or maybe follow Carribean's advice and see if HDC is available?

cherrybomb, what kind of deal did you get? I got pics, video, and ttd, but i'm not sure we are getting a discount, so far i've only paid the deposit, which for me was $400 USD.

Sooo I have a dilemma... I picked a photographer here in MTL back when we were planning our wedding here (before we changed our minds to a DW) we had left a deposit. She was nice enough to give our deposit as engagement photos. The end of Oct we finally went and took the pics. I've heard from her once since saying I'd recieve them in a few weeks. Ok, fine... I recently e-mailed her asking her roughly when does she think she would be sending them (by mail) and to inform me more in detail about the boudoir photo session. Well I still haven't heard back from her, and still have no idea when she'd be free to do the session. So I'm freaking out!!! Do I find another photographer?!? I've looked around sent a few e-mails few weeks ago and no reply's.

Anyone know of a photographer that works in this area?!

Hi Beachbum

 

We are paying $1926 USD for Gold Photo package (5 hours) + Platinum Video Package + Trash the Dress Session. I think we got a 10% discount on that. Our deposit was $385 USD. Sounds like you're paying around the same?

CarribeanLover that totally sucks! Does your photographer have an office that you can just show up at? There's no excuse for her to not return your calls, especially since she's already taken the time to take your photos! If it were me I'd just go to her office in person or call her every day until she calls you back!

    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
