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.

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!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
