Okay Dreams brides....if the packages are similar (I'm will be a cancun bride),

 

What package did you decide on? Did you use the photographer from the resort? Do you have to? What about the videographer?

 

I have received both the photo packages and video packages and well can't decide whats best and really what it all means. They list say 115 photos (different sizes) for a certain amount. Is this throughtout the night or in total? I've asked the WC but I don't think I understand her about this part.

 

And then how did you go about making your specific requests? DO you prepare a list of shots you want? Or leave it to the photographer?

Any tips about the photography?

 

Thanks in advance!

I'm getting married in Dreams Cabo so I don't know if the packages are the same or not. But I didn't even bother asking for a package b/c I am using Juan Carlos Tapia. And if I wasn't getting married in cabo I would probably hire Leigh or Jonathan (both photogs on this board). I love both their work and that's what I would go with. But maybe one of the cancun brides can give you better info on this.

Hi Brenda,

 

I don't really understand the dreams photo thing either. I was planning to hire an outside photographer, but its just not in our budget, so I'm planning to use the resort photographer, I did see some pictures and they were decent. Could claudia put you in touch with the photographer and maybe it would be easier to clarify things first hand with them.

Do you know if the resort requires you to hire their photographer? I can't see how they can do that though. I'm not sure about their photographer requirements but if you only get 115 photos, that sounds like e really bad deal.

 

I would look into hiring someone who's work you really like. With the resort photographers, you never know what you're going to get and since photos are the one thing you're going to have when it's all over, you want to make sure you're going to like them.

 

Keep us posted.

Oh, another thing Brenda, claudia did tell me that we could hire an outside photographer, I didn't clarify with her if they had to be a guest at the resort or not, you may want to check with her on this.

hi brenda,

 

have you thought of submitting for jonathan's contest. he is giving away a free wedding package and he will make a decision by jan. 31. all you need to do is pay for his airfare and lodging but it would be sooo worth it.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
