Need some help picking a photographer!

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I have narrowed down our choices to Sascha Gluck, Claudia Rodriguez or  Citlalli Rico. It was difficult narrowing down the list from 7 to now 3, but its becoming even more difficult choosing 1!!

 

Any input would be really helpful!!

 

Thanks!

Yeas, Ive combed through all the reviews and im still having a tough time deciding on just one, since they both have gotten such great reviews. i was just hoping to get some input from brides who have used them.

I don't think you could go wrong with any of them! I've spent quite a bit of time looking at all of their portfolios. I have a slight preference for Sascha Gluck, but I'd be hard pressed to put into words the reason why.

Choosing a photographer IS tricky, but I suggest you to keep looking at their portfolio until you get the vibe from photos. For me, I asked the photographers to come with us because I loved all of their work, literally.

I took a short look at some wedding photos of each photographers you listed, and their photos feel differently.

It may be just me, but Citlalli Rico feels more reflective than Sasha (for some of them).

Based on my quick observations, I will go with Rico if I look for quieter wedding photos, and I will go with Sasha if I want loudness and noisiness in my photos. Claudia uses more stable angles (vs. Rico's are more for arrange objects in unusual positions in one angle). 

Once you choose a photographer, it's also important talk about the mood and feeling that you are looking for in your wedding photos. I think that's more important than choosing one when you know you can't really go wrong with any from your list. :)

Good luck!

I'm sure you've already made your decision but for anyone else reading this I recommend that you narrow it down to the ones your like and then get them on the phone and have a conversation with them.  I've found that we get the best photos with the couples that we "click" with.  Just make sure that you like them, feel like yourself with them, can laugh with them and can forget them - in the sense that they will blend into your wedding party and you will forget they are even there.  That allows us as photographers to get the important moments as they happen....

 

Best of luck to you all in your planning!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
