    I am getting married on July 13, 2012 at the Paradisus Palma Real and I have booked a photographer through Arrecife Paradisus Punta Cana.  My concern is they don't ask for a deposit?  They ask that you pay in cash after you review the photos and gave me the prices which seem reasonable with copyrights! I feel a little weird about no deposit and also paying cash but want to see if this is how they typically do things in the DR?


    Thank you!

    each company is going to do things a little differently but most usually take a deposit.  the plus side is that arrecife is a reputable company.

      Hi Jennifer!


      I got married at Melia (as you might now they share a common area with Paradisus) and Arrecife is their official photography provider too.


      They do not ask for a deposit, they take your word as a confirmation. The are gentle, ant they really care about what you want: your tastes, desires and expectations about your wedding pictures.


      Then at the moment of buying, they show you several options and packages, so will find -for sure- one which fits your needs. Anyway they are always open to modify their packages if you need to add or change anything.


      About paying in cash, I found it very common at the Dominican republic -no matter the kind of service you are paying for- they always give you a better discount if you pay in cash, I guess that is why they suggest you to do so..


      You will really love your wedding pictures! we have received a lot of clompiments..


      Share some of them with us! and happy planning!
