HDC Photo

Recommended Posts

I have heard good comments about this company for a destination wedding photographer.  Has anybody had any experience using them?

My husband and I worked with this company during our summer wedding (in June).  They are AMAZING!  As we were planning from afar, we spent a lot of time researching various companies and read nothing but wonderful reviews about HDC, so we just went for it.  Arnaud was very prompt, professional and TRUSTWORTHY (this was a huge deal as we were dealing with expenses with a company from another country!) .  We met with him a few days before the wedding and had the pleasure to work with him during our ceremony.  Our other photographer was Charlie and he was just as fantastic.  They were both very easy going, flexible kept me calm before the ceremony, captured all of the moments we wanted to remember forever, were flexible, maintained professionalism throughout our wedding and engaged with our guests.  

 

We could not believe how quickly the images were available for us to view and they were printed for us the day before we left to go home!  Our photo book came exactly when Arnaud stated, and it is beautiful!   We chose the diamond package and were astounded by all of the services and pictures were received for the price and the prompt timing!   If you want memorable, gorgeous photos for your wedding and not stress about it from afar, I would HIGHLY recommend HDC Photography.

I just had my wedding on August 11th and using HDC was the best decision I made.  They are absolutely hands down, the BEST in Punta Cana!!!!!

We just booked them for our 11-12-13 wedding next year. I would love to hear other people's thoughts on them.

We had HDC film only the video for our wedding. A video is not something that I originally wanted, but my now-husband convinced me that we would regret not having that memory caught on film...and he was SO right. I am so happy that we decided to get the video, that we can share it with the people who couldn't be there with us, and even more happy that we decided to go with HDC.

 

The communication is outstanding. Although Arnaud did not personally film our wedding, he was super fast with responses (always in the same day, and usually within the hour!) to any e-mail that I sent him. I'm sure everyone understands how important this can be leading up to the wedding day.

 

Carlos arrived to my room on the on the wedding day a quickly got to work, not wasting any time. He was quiet, and I barely noticed him, but somehow he managed to capture so many beautiful shots of at the little "details" that you would want to remember on your wedding day. A handful of times throughout the day he asked me a few questions or to do a few things for the camera, but he was not overbearing in any way and we were more than happy to work with him. He also told me that he was going to stay a a few mintues extra to capture the cake cutting, dress change, and dancing. It meant a lot to me that he didnt even ask, he just did it and now we will have that footage forever. Thank you so much Carlos for your professionalism and your beautiful work!

 

The turn around time is remarkable, especially for the quality of work. Our wedding was friday night and the video was delivered at 9am on Sunday morning. Again, the great communication by this company was KEY, because we had originally planned to meet in the hotel lobby at 9:30, but the next day I realized that our bus would be comming at 9:25 to take us to the airport. Arnaud arranged for Carlos to come at 9am. It was so nice to watch the video on the place ride home.

 

The value for money was incredible. Very comparable prices and worth every penny. We also just decided to spend the extra $250 for the highlight video. I think it will be worth it so that you can share the wedding with loved ones without making them sit through 1.5 hours of footage ;) I can't wait to see it!

We had Milan as our photographer and Carlos as the videographer for our wedding in Punta Cana on the 14th of  Nov 2012. Their work was phenomenal. From the fun,artistic and unconventional photography by Milan and the super cool videography by Carlos and the phenomenal editing and super fast delivery by Arnaud...we couldn't have asked for more from anyone. Everyone loved the team ..they made us feel at ease and the pictures captured all our memories so beautifully. Arnaud was very communicative and fast all through the process leading up to the big day and everything was completely painless.We got our photos and video back the day after the wedding in less than 24 hours. I did a lot of research before going with HDC and I am sooooo glad that I did! Worth every single penny!

We just used them for our wedding on November 10th at Paradisus Palma Real.  I really can't say enough wonderful things about the whole team.  Arnaud very communicative and responsive to all of my emails.   He met with us a few days after the wedding so we could choose our pics that would be printed out and we had the video and all the pics before we left!  Milan's photography style is amazing.  You can tell he absolutely loves what he does.  Our pics are so beautiful!!!  All of the guests couldn't stop raving about how great Milan was.  Carlos did an amazing job as well.  He quietly stood in the background capturing all of the amazing moments on video and video is incredible!!!  We've watched it a bunch of times already!  

 

I just wrote a review about the day so definitely check it out.  Let me know if you have any questions.  I highly recommend going with HDC.  The pics are too beautiful for words!  Their work is impeccable!  They love what they do and it shows!

    • Hi! Thanks for sharing this story. Happy married life! If you once will need a website, here are the tips to choose a proper style and purpose. What is the purpose of a website?  Everyone finds a good reason to create a website! But in general, we can say that the websites are being created to offer a useful service that others will use. It can even be free, although if this is something really cool, you can always make money on it!
    • Hello All.. I am new to this forum and I am here to learn and share wedding clothing, jewellery tips. Hope my journey will be great here!!
    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
