My suggestion is once we book a day to book a hotel through hotwire we wont know the hotel name till we pay but it is cheaper and usually the hotels are nice. There is a nice hotel in Jersey across form the city(Jersey city) Hyatt I booked it before via hotwire the rate was good and hotel wa nice.

Hi Ladies,

 

I have heard back from Kamila and here are the answers to all of your questions...

 

Please let me know on this thread about date first.. I am open to taking off Friday, March 6th - but my work is flexible. I will go with the majority.

 

THE DATE- I am ok with either date honestly

Kamila wrote:

Would Friday March 6th work for you girls at all?

I could do March 7th but I spoke to Michelle LoConte today and she has a wedding that day so she wouldn't be able to start until the afternoon. I prefer to start at noon or earlier so that we have as much natural light as possible. By March the sun sets a little later than it does now, so we might be okay if we start around 2:00, especially if we have no more than 4 girls in the group, that should be enough time!

 

LOCATION: NYC

Kamila wrote:

And I cover the room cost up to $150, while most rooms in NYC are about $250, so anything over $150 would be split between the girls. If we have 5 girls, it would only be about $20 extra per person. Also, Michelle has a contact at one of the new super chic hotels in NYC so we are hoping to get a day-rate or some kind of deal which may be possible especialy if we are going to do the shoot during the week.

 

TIMING: Kristy.. I specifically asked about you since you are the soonest and she said it's definetely doable

Kamila wrote:

I actually do work on the sessions in order of who's getting married soonest or who needs the album finished soonest. Since the early spring is a far less busy time than the summer and fall, I would expect to be done with all the sessions in no more than a few weeks, so May is more than enough time.

 

DETAILS: It's the $400 package I listed on the first page of this thread to include:

Kamila wrote:

The $400 is correct, and it is about 6-8 outfit changes, about an hour or so photoshoot per girl.

 

DEPOSITS: i would prefer that everyone contact Kamila themselves to give her the deposits when we decide or I can set up a Paypal account

Kamila wrote:

I would need the deposits of $100 per person when we decide on a date, so that I can book the room and Michelle LoConte for makeup/hair.

 

So far, I have the following ladies interested (in order of when they posted)-

Myself

I would rather do the March 6th as well for your reasons and Kamila's reasoning with the natural light etc..
I think that we need 3 people to be eligible for the group rate; and I know Kristy said that she can take a day off of work as well.

For those that can't - I will talk to her about setting up a Sat session.

Fabulous! So we have 3 of us which is enough to qualify for the group rate. Im going to give it another day or so to see if anyone else is interested and then I will give you all my PayPal information.

Thanks so much for looking into the location Kristy! I will also check with Kamila on her location as well - then we can all decide from there.

I can't do the 6th unless it was after 4 because I am a teacher and I can't take off. If anyone wants to do the 7th or a diffrent date I still want to do it

I completely understand. I have already asked Kamila if there is a second date or if she can do both Friday and Saturday.

Either way, I will post it on here (keep looking at this thread) - and then one of you ladies can pick up the coordination from there.

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
