Awesome! I've seen a lot of stuff on other forums about that resort, so you are lucky to be able to find photog pics, etc.

My resort has very few brides who post info ... so that kinda sucks, but it makes me think that hopefully there aren't a ton of weddings there ... so hopefully I'll be the only one on my big day! :-)

really your best bet is to find one from the states. you will atleast know that you two can communicate. and you will have the photographer for more then 3 hours. it will usually cost more but when you break down what you are getting its so worth it. have them come out a couple days and you can get several days worth of photography and remember all the other times. my advise is to also talk to them on the phone if they arent someone you can meet in person. make sure you click with them personality wise and that they arent boring. the photographer is going to be with you for quite a while. last thing you want is someone who annoys you wink.gif

 

PS. i made a new signature image. can everyone see that okay or are the images too small?

I think this will work nicely if our friend cannot make it.

oh so true. the budget is always the final straw. and you really can find good photographers at the resorts. i just wish that they would be there for longer then the packages allow. personally i think the best photos of the entire wedding are always the ones of the bride and groom getting ready with their wedding party. but i guess the resort photographers have to shoot two maybe three weddings a day so they dont really have the option of staying longer.

and thank you leXiee. im glad that im offering helpful advice :)

hi,

 

I am kate and I am planning my wedding in Punta Cana for june. I can see that we all have the same problem about photography. Just to let you know, I have found a great company ( probably the best one) in Punta Cana. Photosouvenir Punta Cana, Wedding Photographer Dominican Republic .One of my best friend got married last year in the Excellence Punta Cana and used them for her wedding and her pictures are stunning. This is a team of professional photographers from Europe and their work looks really good. Plus,they are cheaper than the photographers here and offer the same quality. I am booking with them and they said that they can go anywhere in Punta Cana so you should ckeck it out. Hope it helps.

 

Kate

Hi

 

I've had a couple of quotes from photographers in Punta Cana and both the cheapest quotes are comparable with the gold price quote for Ocean Blue.

 

I'm still not sure who i'm going to go with (I too am getting married at Ocean Blue) but its worth having the info to make a decision. Here is the website for one of them:

 

Juan Guzman-Wedding Photographer in Dominican Republic

 

I'm trying to find the other, so as soon as I do I will post it for you.

 

I have just been to the link above (Photosouvenir Punta Cana, Wedding Photographer Dominican Republic) and this was the other quote I had.

 

Hope this helps

Regards

Valerie

Not bad! I tend to not want a lot of posed pictures, but they do have lots that aren't so posed. The quality is great and it's nice to see so many different Punta Cana area wedding pics!

 

So what do their package prices look like?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
