    We have booked Katya for our Dominican wedding in April at Dreams Punta Cana. She has captured a few of my friends weddings and my girl friends and I had boudoir photos taken for my friends stagette. She is amazing and I highly recommend contacting her if you are getting married in the Dominican!!

      THANKS! 
      I am currently frickin out about STDs (typing this makes me think of sexually transmitted diseases instead of save the dates hahahaha)- we don't have a theme or colors so I think I'm going with something simple from Vistaprint the FI wants them out ASAP to give people plenty of notice and we can reserve a block of rooms at the resort.

        The only advice I can give is this...

         

        Once you decide on your venue, call the hotel and ask if a) you are allowed an outside photographer (I have heard of some places not allowing it) and B) how much it costs.

        Some of your wedding packages will include a few pictures depending on what you pick and depending on where you go.

         

        Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana includes some pictures in their wedding packages.

        Their onsite photography is Arrecife - they have a few locations at a few hotels and I love their work :)  They also do TTD sessions.

        This particular hotel charges $500 I believe for an outside photographer.  I think the package I chose was 30-something pictures for about $300ish dollars.

         

        I had no issues with their work - they are pros at wedding photos, so they tell you exactly what to do and they are so familiar with the location that they know all the great spots to take you!

          Oh and I also did STDs (not the sexual kind LOL)...

           

          I went and got sheets of magnets that you run through your printer at home (they are label size) and trusty old Microsoft Word had a template for the magnets and I used that...

              Don't mind the horrible cut on the top of this magnet lol.

              This was one of the rejects!

              I cut them all with one of those slicing blades you use to cut stacks of paper...

                And the best part of this template is that they have the matching template for envelope labels :)

                      I found save the date magnets at vistaprint - they were 80% off, so 100 of them including shipping only came to arond $25.00. I find vistaprint sends out promo emails all the time with great pricing :)
