      I photographed weddings at the Majestic Colonial, Paradisus Palma Real, Dreams and Riu Bachata.

      I find Majestic Colonial is the most popular resort. They do a great job organizing weddings. I can say a lot of nice things about this resort. I have spent 4 weeks there, photographing 8 weddings.

      Dreams Resort and Riu Bachata, where I also stayed, have a lot of great locations for photography.

      I also liked Paradisus Palma Real, it is a beautiful luxury resort.

      If anyone has any questions about there resorts, please do not hesitate to contact me.

          what do you think stand out the most about Paradisus Palma Real the resort? And what stands out in most of their wedding?

          I am going to be doing a TTD while i'm down there and wonder if you have done any down there that aren't the resort ie waterfalls or anything other than the beac?

            Paradisus Palma Real is an exuberant property. The grounds are gorgeous: beautiful architecture, tropical gardens, small lagoon with pink flamingos, and white sandy beach. The event was really exciting, and despite the large size of the group (95 guests), I was able to capture all the special moments.

            The wedding ceremony took place at the garden gazebo, which was surrounded by lush gardens and a small pond. I took some pictures of the bride and groom in the garden, by the lagoon, in the courtyard, in the pool gazebo and the beach and there were still plenty locations that were not used. Overall what stood out the most was a plethora of great spots for photography.

            In regards of the trash the dress session, I highly recommend The Altos de Chav³n. It was built about 30 years ago to replicate a Mediterranean village of 16th century. This village is located on the mountain with the beautiful view of Chav³n River.

            Here is my slideshow of the trash the dress session at The Altos de Chav³n:

            I also found a great location off resort and it is located between Grand Bahia Principe and Majestic Elegance Resort - wild palm tree jungle.

            Let me know if you have any other questions.
