Bringing photographers to Dreams Palm Beach

Recommended Posts

I am getting married December 2, 2011 at Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana. Has anyone who has gotten married there recently brought their own photographer from where they live? If so, did you have any problems with them getting to the resort and getting to take the photos? They are staying at the resort with us over the entire weekend, so I figure it would be fine for us just to say they are family friends and they aren't getting paid for their work. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I'm bringing in my own photographers as well.  They are also "family friends" staying for a few nights, so we are able to avoid an outside vendor fee. 

 

I need to find out if there is a work visa requirement for them entering the country with their equipment?  We don't want to have any problems in customs. Getting in contact with the US Embassy is becoming a royal pain.

 

Anyone fly down there own photographers?  Are there any specific requirements? Please help!

 

Thanks,

Shannon

I emailed Melani about it a while back and she said that it was fine that we were bringing our own photographer. She didn't say anything about requirements. I'd say as long as they don't advertise that they are paid photographers, there shouldn't be a problem.

Hi Shannon & brides bringing your own photograhers - don't worry about getting any visas for them. Do let them know that they are allowed 2 camera bodies per person, but I doubt anyone will be bringing more that that. Also, give them an invitation to carry with them just in case. As long as they write on the customs card that they are traveling for 'pleasure' - they won't even be asked. Hope that helps! 

 

Oh I can't wait for Dreams!! My fiancee and I will be living in Punta Cana as of this fall (2011) & shooting weddings, it's so exciting to be on the other side of things. Let me know if there is anything I can help with!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
