Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does anyone have any photos by the onsite photographer at ROR? I think his name is Michael? Any advice? Do alot of people bring there own photographer with them? Or hire outside the resort? How much do peopel generally pay to bring a photographer along?

Thanks for all your help!

I used Michael and I had some good and bad about him. He is great to work with and takes wonderful pictures. I believe he is overworked and doesn`t have enough help as we had a hard time getting our photo`s before we left and we were there for two weeks (photo`s were not ready at 5pm the night before we left and we were leaving at 7am the next day). We did end up getting them but at 9pm and without much editing.

There will be some in my review over the next couple days.

For Brian, we have to purchase a day pass for him, which apparently is $50US. But I figure it is worth it to get someone that comes recommended. I also heard that Michael's prices went up considerably in January, so I would double check the price lists which were posted on here earlier.

Our wedding is really small (7 guests) and not really a reception, just dinner in the evening. We purchased the 3 hour package from Brian and since he lives so close to the resort, he said that we could split the package where he is there for 1 1/2 hours for the ceremony and family pics, and then would come back just before sunset to take pics of my FH and I on the beach at sunset. I thought that was great of him!

I'll certainly let you know how it goes.

Hey Krista!

 

Generally to bring an outside vendor, if they are not local, the photographer asks for travel and accommodations to be paid for, in addition to the cost of photos. Most likely though they have special destination rates to keep your costs down, but still allow you to use the photographer of your dreams!

 

Hope this helps :)

    • 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.
