Welcome to this great forum, I´ve been in Dominican Republic several times and of course is not dangerous, there are places where you should not go, but like everywhere. Congratulations on your wedding!!

First of all be smart no woman should be by herself in a place she does not know.
Second yes I've also heard about people getting mugged in the DR but I hear it happen here in NYC ALL the time and it's never happened to me.
If you go out with Photo Souveniers you will be fine. I have heard great things about them and they know there way around Punta Cana and will not take you to a place that isnt safe.
Just have an open mind and be smart.

I say do it! You won't be carrying any valuables on you anyway if you're doing a photoshoot. When you're with a local who speaks the language and has many friends in the area, you can rest assured that you'll be fine. They'll probably bring you to some AMAZING locations and I think it'll look great with you and your husband all dressed up with the true Dominican in the background.
Go for it, and be sure to post lots of pics!

Dominicans are poor but they are not out to hurt you. You won't be taking a large wad of cash with you on your TTD shoot, so they wouldn't be out to rob you. And the guards with the shot guns at the resort, they are really just for show to be honest! The guard where I lived had a gun and never even had any bullets in it!
