Does PPC require and/or have a resort photographer?  If so do they charge a fee to bring in another?

Yes, they use Tropic One Studio (a.k.a. Arrecife) as their preferred vendor. I used them for my wedding and although they are pricey, the photos were stunning and well worth it! Unfortunately, PPC will charge $1000 to use an outside vendor.

If you don't mind how much did Tropic One Studio cost for your wedding pics can't find the prices online? Thanks trying to create my budget.

Hello!

 

My wedding was this past Saturday and I cant even express how beautiful my pictures came out. I didn't use the photographer at the resort as they were to expense. I used Ambrogetti Ameztoy Photo. Sebastian and Martin were by my side from beginning to the end. If you would like their info and to see my wedding pics email me at yalitza0408@@gmail.com

 

Happy Planning!!

I would budget at least $1000-2000 for your photos

Hello Ladies!

My wedding was July 26 2014 and I must say everything came out BEAUTIFUL!!! You will not regret having your wedding at PPC. I had 60guest and I went with the tailor made package, so I had a weekend full of fun. I had my wedding ceremony on the beach at 5pm, cocktail hour on the beach and the reception in the ballroom. I must say what made my wedding extra special was having my wedding planner Theresa by my side the whole time.  I went with an outside photographer and videographer who were awesome!!!   If you have any questions or concerns please ask as this forum helped me a lot when I was in the planning stages.

 

Happy Planning and Best of Luck!

The photographer/videographer pricing for all the vendors I looked into around punta cana is far exceeding my budgeted amount. I had originally booked HDC for my photographer and was going to use the in house Tropic One for videographer. The rates are really high and considering I have to pay $1k for using HDC, I think I may cancel with them and just use Tropic One. Because I am expecting 125 people, I am probably going to choose the biggest photo/video package and it will cost me around $4000. This is almost double what I budgeted but its also the most important thing to me so I'm just going to suck it up. I know I will be grateful every year I look back at pictures and videos :)

Thanks for sharing your album!! I love the pictures, they came out beautiful!  I am getting married a PPC next summer, August 15th, 2015.  I am planning on having about 75-100 people.  I was wondering what you thought about the Caney Ballroom.  I am having trouble picking a place to have the reception that will comfortably allow for that many people.  I am also unsure of what package to go with!  Which package did you choose?? Any information or advice you have about such a large group for the wedding would be great!  Thank you!!  Christina :)

I also am having a large group for my wedding and was wondering what package you went with?  I still haven't decided!  What is your date?  I am doing next summer (8/15/15)  Thanks!

It's been almost 10 months since we were married at PPC and I decided to hop on here to see how the weddings went for the "pending" brides from around that time.

 

From what I gather, changes in policy at the resort is upping the cost of current weddings. Even at a higher cost, I'd still do it again in a heartbeat!

 

If there's any advice I can offer to those trying to keep costs down, it would be to keep your decor simple & don't overthink it. The resort itself provides a great backdrop. You don't need much to give your location(s) a wedding inspired feel. Focus on yourself and things that will impact the experience of your guests (setting, food & music).

 

Best of wishes and congratulations to you all!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
