Looks like our FB and Twitter letter writing campaign had an impact.
In case you haven't seen it, the photography policy appears to have changed yet again. Please check out the post on the Facebook Discussion Page:

The thing is, my reason for going with HDC was not because I doubted the skills of their resort photographer, it was primarily due to the fact that I could get more photos, in both B&W and colour, for a longer period of time for considerably less money.
I understand that corporate policies can change, but at the very least they should give us all our deposits back and offer us all photography packages with the resort photographer, that are comparable to the ones we were expecting with the photographers that were our first choice!!!
I am thinking that our letter should be to the general Dreams Punta Cana address, rather than the Wedding Coordinators - whom I'd expect have no authority to do anything.
In addition to the letter, I'd also recommend that we start an all-out Social Media campaign on the Dreams Twitter and Facebook pages - these companies review these things regularly and the last thing they would want is for the bad press to go viral.
Here is the link to their website, which lists all of their Social Media properties.
If you would like to be part of a letter please PM me.
