    Ladies....We are getting married in May 2013 and as most of you know we are too far in advance to put a deposit down for a venue. In any event I am working on things such as budget now. In respects to photographers what is a realistic budget? For those of you who have done your photgraphy research and homework. What are the packages starting at? We also want to do the TTD shoot so if you can ad some insight on those prices. I know each photographer varies but my goodnees there are soo many...photo souvenir, photo phil, Arrecife, HDC, etc.

     

    My goodness as if there isnt enough for us to worry about LOL.

     

    Insight please guys??!!

      congrats on picking the dominican republic as your destination wedding locations! i am getting married there this april 2012 at the gran bahia principe punta cana. i looked into a LARGE number of photographers in the punta cana area before deciding on bringing my own photographer down with us. 

       

      i looked into HDC Photo, Carribean Emotions, Photo Souvenier, Julie Eskin, Jorge Allocco and Phil Steingard. the packages range from $650 up to $2690, all depending on what your looking for! they all also offer TTD sessions for extra cost, ranging from $200-$450 depending on the amount of time and photographer.

       

      i made a spreadsheet (i know im neurotic) with all the photographers, the packages, what they include and the prices. let me know if you would like to see it and i can attach it on here or send it to you!

        Hi I would love to see that spread sheet...could you please e-mail it to me my e-mail is lonajonesphotography@gmail.com. By any chance have you received pricing from Katya Nova? I love her work and I've contacted her twice and still haven't heard anything from her :(

          I am also getting married in May 2013 and am looking at photography. I would love to have Del Sol but we aren't sure it will be in our budget. If not we are looking at Juan Navarro or Ivan Luckie and then do our TTD with Del Sol.

                    dont worry DominicanLeila, the beginning stage is the hardest. it becomes a little scary, overwhelming and nerve racking lol but it all gets easier and A LOT more fun :) any questions please feel free to ask!

                      I barely know how to post on these forums LOLZ I just noticed your venue is Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana I just emailed them today for pricing although I am pretty much sure about Majestic colonial I would like to see what other places offer. How come you chose them over the others and how big is your guest list?
