Punta Cana Photographers

Recommended Posts

You don't have a lot of options in PC besides the resort photographers. Some are good, some are not so good. I have hired a photographer stateside who we are paying to travel with us and shoot the wedding.

 

When in April is your wedding and where are you getting married? Maybe we will cross paths!!!

There are No photographers in Punta Cana (just resort ones) that I could find, and believe me I looked, and looked, and looked....

 

This is the heartbreak of my wedding!!!!LOL

There is www.hispaniolafoto.com, located in the Punta Cana area ... but they look pretty, well ... not so good. I have some receommendations on DR photogs who I spoke with and were not available formy date. prices are good depending on your budget. I would contact Jill Higgins Photographer Destination Wedding Photography Savannah Charleston Tallahassee Valdosta (she did my BD photos and was going to do the wedding but got booked before I got her my deposit). The one who is doing mine is Amy Martin Photography. They both have comparable rates for the DR, with two photogs and great package options.

Has the resort sent you any files so you can see the kind of work their photogs do? I would be leery of locking in a resort photographer without knowing what to expect. I know some of the DR resorts have phenomenal photogs ... but others -- not so much. Havn't heard any good things about the one offered ay my wedding resort ... so that's why we decided to invest in hiring our own.

I have seen a couple of weddings done by this resort outfit (actually 2 different photogs) on another message board (GASP!) so I know the work is decent. I'd be lying to say its the caliber of some of the fine photogs here, but budget is a huge consideration for us, and we want something more than snapshots from relatives. I think this will work nicely if our friend cannot make it.

That's good then, as long as you'll be pleased with the outcome. I'm glad you've had a chance to check out their work. Which resort?

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort? 
    • Hello Everyone, Share your favorite wedding venues. And also give me a Solution. I choose Wedding Venues in mobile al the Anne-marie cottage.
    • Hello Jania! are you bringing any external vendor for your wedding?
    • Looking forward to seeing your cruise wedding photos!!!
