    My wedding is coming up next Saturday (11/30) and we booked with HDC Photo. Arnaud mentioned that we would be having Miljan and Charly and we will be meeting with them prior to the event.  We have heard great things so we're interested in meeting them to get their perspective for the phtotoshoots.  I will say I've heard Arnaud and Milan/Miljan's name float around a bit but haven't heard of Charly.  Anyone had any experiences with Charly?  Thanks in advance.

    I can't speak for Charly but we loved Miljan so I wouldn't worry one bit. Enjoy your wedding!!

    Milan photographed our wedding and Charlie did our TTD. Both of them were amazing to work with!! Me, my husband, and all our guests in stunned by how beautiful our pictures turned out. We met Arnaud two days later in the lobby of our resort and we chose the pictures we wanted printed, they delivered the prints, DVD with all the edited pics, and video that evening! They are bloody efficient. My only regret is that I didn't hire Milan to stay longer for our wedding!

    We were so happy with HDC. Arnaud responds to emails promptly which is so helpful when planning a wedding at a distance. We met with Arnaud prior to the wedding. He totally put our minds at ease and answered all our questions. George was our photographer the day of the wedding. For starters, he arrived 10 minutes early. He’s a very calm person so that was nice energy to have around while I was getting ready. He spoke to both me and my husband before the ceremony and gave us some great tips for things to keep in mind in order to allow him to get the best shots. (Simple things that are easy to do in the moment- go slowly, look at each other, etc). I never once noticed George during the ceremony- he was like a photo taking ninja. For the group pictures he was super patient and took every combination of pictures I asked for without making me feel like a bother. He did a really great job of directing people in both Spanish and English (we had guests from the US, Canada, Argentina and Chile). For our couples photos we were able to relax around him and have fun which made the pictures look natural and not forced. Arnaud came to our resort to give us the CD of photos 2 days after our wedding- how’s that for speed? The pictures were fantastic! They were the same quality of photo as are shown on their website and blog. Everyone who sees the pictures says the same things- “Your pictures look like they’re from a magazine”. What bride doesn’t want to hear that?! In addition to the photos themselves being high quality, the shots were excellent. My family has a tendency to close their eyes (myself included), there was one shot in more than 300 photos in which someone has their eyes closed. I seriously don’t know how he did it! I would hands down, 100% recommend HDC to anyone looking for a great photographer for any event. We could not be happier with the service they provided and the pictures they took.

      Hi Girls,

       

      My husband and I recently got married at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe on March 8, 2014 (we did have to pay the vendor fee). My wedding started at 5pm on the pier and Merlyn and the videographer (i unfortunately didn't catch his name) arrived at the spa where I was getting ready at 4pm. I was still getting my hair done and they simply asked my bridesmaid to direct them to where the bridal suite was so that they could start taking photos of my dress, shoes, bouquet etc. It was nice to leave all of this in the hands of HDC who just exuded professionalism and experience in what they do. Merlyn made me feel so comfortable in taking my getting ready photos and then went to meet my husband at the pier for some shots of him. The day went by smoothly. Merlyn was very patient with my group who insisted on their individual group photos with me and my husband and kept us on track the whole time. We also did our TTD session with HDC and were happy to see Merlyn in the lobby ready to shoot. He took some amazing photos of us and was very warm and welcoming. If you are on the fence about getting the video....DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are so in love with our video, they really did a great job and we couldn't be happier with the photos and the video.

        We used HDC on March 15, 2014 for a family photo session. We have taken annual session since my daughters now 7 and 8 have been born. All the previous photo sessions have been in the US with professional photographers so we were a little hesitant with booking one abroad.
        HDC were the most professional, arriving exactly on-time, even though we were a little late to the lobby to the hotel. Milan was so much fun to work with and had an endless flow of ideas to come up with shots for the four of us or just the girls. He took extra time with us and you could sense that he really tried to get the best shot but was not making us feel stressed or worried about it. We were relaxed and just having fun! Best of all he took so many great shots of us - we have never had a better photo session. I posted a few on facebook and received so many warm reviews by family and friends saying they had never seen such beautiful photos!
        Our proofs were ready the next day and we purchased all because it was simply impossible to choose from the 100 photos.

          Hello all,

           

          We used HDC for our wedding on March 10, 2014 at the Jellyfish in Punta Cana.

           

          Without a doubt, we highly recommend them. They are professional, arrived on time and went right to work.

           

          HDC was able to stage some beautiful photographs as they are very familiar with many of the locations and resorts in Punta Cana.

           

          Hope this helps!

           

          Irene + Murray - Toronto

          We have decided to go with HDC photo as well for our photography and video! Reading this just made me extra sure that we made the right decision! Their prices were pretty fair to me!

          I have booked HDC for my wedding in August. With all the great reviews I am certain I made the best choice and I have complete faith in them.
