Hey there,

 

I'm a little unsure on how to proceed.  I was hoping to book the resort photog when I got there......do they need more advanced notice than that.  We arrive two days before the wedding.  We only want a handfull of pics and maybe a disc, not a big 2-3K package like most of the ppl here seem to want.  We're getting married at the Grand Palladium Bavaro if that makes a difference.  Really don't wanna have to deal with calling a bunch of places and haggling over prices and packages.  Just want an hour or two's worth of pics. 

 

Any suggestions you can offer would be great.

I would ask your wedding planner at the resort. I'm getting married at the Grand Palladium palace and the wedding coordinator sent me a bunch of links for photographers. Not bad prices and a few different packages.

Thank Melli, are you booking one of them in advance or are you just going there and dealing with it then ?  I was looking at Jalu.us and it sounds like their prices are negotiable from the email he sent me.

I emailed the photographer to ask how far in advance to book, he had trouble with english but basically said book anytime. I would organize it before you go down so your not to busy when you get there. You want to be able to relax a bit.

Sarah: I do have someone interested in coming with us to take the pictures but that will cost me about $1500.  Was looking for a more economical solution.

 

Melli:  I think I'll put that in the Sept-Oct file once I get all the legalization paper work done.

 

Thank you both for your input.  I'd really be happy with 20-30 pictures and a disc to make my own prints and book once we get back.  Neither one of us enjoys getting our pictures done and enough of our guests will have their own pics to share also.  I know everyone keeps saying that the pictures will last a lifetime.......well I'm sorta hoping my marriage does that too :)

Nov 20th.  Now that I've done a little more research I've found a few packages that are much more reasonable.  HDC and Jorge Allecco are the two I'm deciding between.

Do you know if they do video too? Our wedding is April 2011 so far all I've done is get my dress. Thanks for those two names I will look into that. I didn't realize there was a few companies who do the photography at the resorts.

    • 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.
