Choosing a photographer - what am I looking for?

Recommended Posts

I agree with everone who said don't rule out flying someone in with you- it may not be much more than using someone who's already there. For me the personality of the photographer was really important, too- they'll be a big part of your day after all. Try to have a phone interview at least so you can see if you "click."

I agree with previous posts. I looked at SO many websites, some I liked, but just a couple, i LOVED. I fell in love with the style of our photographer, and it just 'felt right' - even more than when I tried on my wedding dress. I ended up working out a deal, and our photographer will also be flying to Mexico for our wedding, as he is from the city we are from.

A friend of mine chose her photographer because she was a family friend and cheap, and she ended up hating ALL of her photos. We agreed we could splurge a bit on this because the photos are super important to me. So you have to weigh all the pros and cons and look at TONS of sites. E-mail the ones you love and see what you can work out. Dont settle! Good luck!

(my photographers info is in my bio if you want to peek)

Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

Make sure you see an entire wedding, not just lots of pretty pictures form lots of different weddings :) Also, are they fun to work with, you will be with them on your most important day,all day. Lastly, ask for at least 3 referrals. Their clients will tell you honestly. Best wishes!

    • 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.
