    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if anyone has recently used the Photographer offered at the Gran Bahia in Punta cana? Bringing in outside photographers seems so expenisive but I still want to have great pics.

    Any ideas
    Thanks!!!! :)

      Have you tried out of province wedding photographers? Surprising how different the markets are out east.
      just a thought. if photos are important you may want to look into this.
      Also remember to have fun at your wedding :)

      Seems expensive, but it might not be TOO terrible. I just did a quick quote on Expedia (I'd highly recommend going through a TA for actual booking, however), and to fly in TWO photographers from Montreal would only be $1800. And that's for three nights. So you could potentially fly in a photographer and get up to three days worth of GREAT photos for $1800. Now, most photographers will also charge a fee on top of that, but talk to them. Some might be willing to do it for right around there, maybe $500-1000 more. Is it worth it?? That is for you to decide and for you to decide how much you love photos.
      When I got married at my resort it was 70 pictures for $1080. And that is 70 5x7 PRINTED photos. No photos on a disc or anything. There are over 200 pictures in my photo album, so $1080 wouldn't have even filled that!!! Thank goodness I flew in my own photographer!!
