as for the creative ones - i just let leigh and matt do their thing. i was looking for my shoes at some point and they were hanging from the shutters - i know leigh was up to something! i just can't wait to see all of the shots i DIDN'T know she took!
actually ann i was prancing around in your shoes acting like i was the bride!

heres my take on the whole picture list thing. i DO need a list of family/group shots you want if you want to make sure we dont miss any. that being said on DWs i find that list rarely makes it to me and thats ok because #1 its a much more laid back event (usually) and #2 there are usually fewer guests/family members to shoot so we just shout out - hey you come over here and be in the photo or you wont have a ride back to the resort. everyone pays attention to that wink.gif

what i dont need is a list of photos that say things like - bride and groom kissing, bride and groom leaving ceremony together, back of brides wedding gown, brides shoes, etc.... what i tell people is - if its happening, if it was there - i shoot it!!! now that doesnt mean im opposed to hearing id really like a pic of this or that. there have been a few times that brides wanted something very specific and told me and i made sure i got it. both times they were in fact shots i would have taken anyway - one was the bride getting dressed and one was the couple driving away at the end of the ceremony in a sassy sportscar. so im open but i agree with matt kim, if you start bogging me down with lists its going to be hard for me to do my thing and produce what you gals are used to seeing.

so from now on just call me photoDIVA wink.gif

im sure that happens sometimes. at my wedding i forgot to get a more formal pic of me and my boys. i have a few that we are all three in just goofing around. i was a bad bride though and never got a list to matt of the formals i wanted. we just told everyone to scram that we didnt want the formals with and hollered - ok your turn - to those we did. im sure it drove matt crazy!

    • 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.
