Octavio Montes photography?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the feedback!  I actually went to see your pics and it says I am not on the "member list" to view it...would you mind if I took a look at them??  I actually clicked on the "ask to be added" link, so maybe you just have to OK me looking!?

Hired Octavio to photograph my wedding on April 21 and he was great! Mainly I wanted someone who was a) affordable and B) could get me a disc of all the pictures before we returned home.

 

He was great! Booked him from 3:30 until 6. My ceremony was at 5.

 

Octavio arrived at 3. He took pictures of me and the girls getting ready, the guys getting ready if that's what you would call it haha, more of us finishing up and walking through the resort to the wedding area, the ceremony, group shots, couple shots, and even some unscheduled ttd. He stayed until 7:30 at no extra charge! He was EXTREMELY nice and was running around everywhere to get shots from every angle. On the ground, on a ladder, in the water, you name it and he did it.

 

My discs of pictures were delivered by him to my hotel 4 days later because he had another wedding out our way. He made a personalized DVD case with both CDs in it and they had labels with our pictures on the cds. Very sweet and professional. The file sizes are HUGE, I could print posters if I wanted. I couldn't be happier with him!  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want to see some of my favorite shots for examples.

Hello!

We had our wedding last May 5th on Catalonia Royal Tulum…I can't say well enough about Octavio Montes! Our photos look amazing! I sent him my ideas about what kind of photos I wanted and he did it exactly like I imagined! No, he did it better! He captured all the “big†moments and details and the couple photos were just like we wanted...besides, he is really funny, gentle…we were so happy during the photo session! And when we saw the photos…my husband was always saying “Wowww I look good in all the photos!†Very professional!!!

Very happy with him :-)

Thanks SO much for your review!!  So he didn't mind you sending him "inspiration" pics?  Did you  just email him a bunch of pictures that you liked??  I have been saving a lot of pictures that I love and would love to recreate, but didn't know if it would be insulting to send them to him?

 

Also...do you have pictures to share!?!?!  I'd love to see more of his work!!

He loves inspiration pics, because in this way he can see better what are our kind of pictures; I sent him some pictures that I saw in his website, and....he printed it and he came to the couples sessions after the wedding with the pictures printed so we coud have all the things we wished! I sent him one ceremony guide too, so he could see what to expect and what were the most important moments for us during the ceremony. And told him exactly what to expect: in our case: romantic photos, happy moments photos (like running on the beach) and some funny photos (like jumping near the water). He is really nice :) And have nice ideas too...we took a picture with mexican hats that is really funny! Send me one p.m. with your e-mail and I'll send you some photos ;) (tomorrow, because i don't have it here with me)

I just booked Octavio for our wedding Feb 18, 2012 and for a trash the dress.  Soo pumped!  I'd love to see anyone's pictures they'd be willing to share that he took.  I'm starting to collect inspirational pics that I want to share with him, like you ladies suggest above!

Ooooooh!  5% off would help!  Thanks for that.  I just emailed him to see if he would honor that, even though we already signed the contract with the prices, etc.  He seems nice enough to do so.  Crossing my fingers!

    • 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.
