They are actually from Punta Cana, and very reasonable we think (though we do not have our pics back, so I guess we will see then!)

      We hired HDC for the wedding, but I'm still on the fence about a TTD session. I would love to see your pictures whenever you get them!

          My Fiance and I are also doing a TTD session! I had to convince him to do it because he thought we would drown (especially after hearing all the stories of brides being swept away and drowing). I assured him it would be fine! I just realised that maybe I should think about what kind of material is best for TTD.  My dress is organza and I'm not so worried about it being 'trashed' as I would get it cleaned when we get home anyways.  What's everyone else's experience with their dresses materials in the water and sand?

          Need to convince my fiance that we should do a TTD shoot.  I have a year to convince him, wish me luck.

            Hi! My dress had a chiffon overlay on top of satin (and a bit of crinoline). It was TOTALLY fine. We did ours on the beach, then rinsed off really well in one of the beach showers, wearing the dress, then went in the pool for underwater shots. After, we filled our hotel jacuzzi tub, put the dress in, and kind of swished it back and forth, just to rinse off the chlorine mostly. Then we hung it in the shower to dry. Like everyone says, it looks cleaner than it did after the wedding.

            I am wearing it for our AHR this Saturday, and then I will have it cleaned and put away.

            So I do not know about organza, but my materials were absolutely fine.

              I love the idea buut don't think we will be doing it, as it will add a big extra cost to the wedding. I'm still recuperating from the shock of how expensive photographers are!!

                  I hired HDC and did the TTD session, and I actually love those pics more than the other pics! My dress was fine after just rinsing it out in the shower and laying it outside in the sun, then I just shook the excess sand out! It was as good as new! If anyone would like to see my pics you can find me on Facebook under Heidy Martinez :) I have all the pics there under Ceremony, Reception and then TTD. You can see how HDC works!

                    Looks like a nice idea to be tried upon for the wedding day. :)
