Hey girls~


I am getting ready to do my BD shoot! A little scared but excited too :) I know we had mentioned sharing the costs of a hotel room, so I am starting this thread so we can discuss.


I want to do my shoot in February - either Saturday Feb 7th, Feb 21st or Feb 28th. My wedding is in March so I can't do it any later than February (gotta have time to get the book!). Oh - I'm also open to doing it during the week if that works better for anyone.


If anyone is interested in sharing the cost of a room, let me know. I would love to use Hotel ZaZa ($170 a night), but am open to suggestions!


I am using Jeremy Gilliam (dallasboudoir.com). He's fantastic! Even if you have a different photographer, we can still share the room - we can just have "time-slots" :)


Let me know if you're interested!!

Hi Ashli! I'm still working on losing some weight before our wedding in July but I'm hoping to have a BD shoot in June. I'm glad you let us know the website b/c I've been trying to find a reasonably priced photographer for such a thing. Please let us know how your session goes. The shots on his website are really great so I'm sure your pics will turn out beautiful as well. And ZaZa sounds like a perfect location!! Good luck!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
