    Like most of you, I have been doing a ton of research on photographers in Punta Cana. I got prices from a few & narrowed it down to what fit my budget. (Jorge Alloco & Michael Weiler) Both of them do nice work from what I can see. My only concern is that they both require payments in CASH. I dont know how I feel about that but FI (the banker that he is) is not happy with that idea at all.
    Has anyone used these guys before? I would like to hear some reviews to help me make a decision.

    Thanks Girls!

      I spoke to Michael through email and told him also that I wasn't comfortable with carrying almost $2000 in cash. I've got an email from him that says he'd take a travelers check.
      My recommendation would be to send him an email and ask him if he'll take travelers check, money order, bank check, etc. so at least you'll have his response in writing. Take it with you (the email chain) along with the form of payment and you should be good to go.
      Good luck!

          I booked Jorge for this July. I'll let you know how it goes! I also didn't want to pay cash but I gave him a deposit via pay pal.

                Hey I noticed you got married at the PPR- I'm getting married there in July! Did you happen to write a review? I would love to read it, thanks!

                  does anyone have links to some of the BDW brides that used Jorge? I can't find any of his pics on this forum.

                    He usually has an ad up on the upper left hand corner of the forum that you can click on and get his info. Here is his wedding website:

                    Jorge Allocco - Photography

                    Also, if your on facebook there's a group called Paradisus Palma Real brides and I'm pretty sure he's posted some of his pics up there.
