HDC Photo

Recommended Posts

We booked HDC Photography for our November wedding in Punta Cana. Arnaud was always very responsive via email.  Milan was our photographer for the wedding and Carlos was the videographer.  They both did such a great job and were so great to work with the whole day.  We got our pictures and video back within 5 days and they all turned out better than we could have imagined! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer and videographer!!

So glad to hear that you all were so happy!

 

Any of the brides willing to share some of their pictures? We have them booked currently for our April wedding and would love to see some more of their work!

Great decision we made to reserve HDC for our wedding this month at the Hard Rock.  Well worth the outside vendor fee!  All the great reviews we read confirmed and went beyond our expectations.  Arnaud was very professional, reliable, and organized, and Milan was great to work with.  He was very creative and did such a beautiful job!  We have so many amazing photos that it was difficult to choose prints.  We also received our prints and video within a few days after the wedding.  We highly recommend HDC!

@ jwaller - Congrats on the wedding and thanks for the review!  How long did you have HDC there for?  I'm still not sure if I should get the 5 or 6 hour packages and whether or not to get the videography package.  How long did you book video for?  Would you do anything differently regarding timing (ie: start earlier, spend less time for bride/groom prep, have them stay longer or shorter)?

Thank you :)

I only did the 3 hr photo and videography package, just for the ceremony, beach photo session, and part of the reception.  I still got several nice pics and a nice video, but I wish I got an extra hour for both.

I recently had my wedding in D.R and joined this forum so that I can post my review about HDC. Milan shot my wedding and did an excellent job. I gave him very little direction (which is unusual of me) and he just knew what to capture. He also knew how to direct each shot and was super mindful of composition and backgrounds. The prints and shots were ready within a few days. I received many compliments on my photos. The quality and color of the prints were also excellent. I'd highly recommend their services.

We used HDC for our wedding at Now Larimar Punta Cana on November 26th. 

 

We could not be happier! The pictures are amazing, the experience was wonderful! We get so many compliments for the pictures. I feel we got so many pictures in such little time, all because of HDC! 

 

Our photographer was Nick (gosh, if I got his name right, he is Serbian). He is AMAZING! Made everything easy, seamless, professional and fun. We all had a blast and he captured our wedding to match our style. It was so much fun and the pictures were great! He coached us quickly, friendly and efficiently. And, very importantly, he got the important people in the party and understood "who is who". Amazing considering I only had him for 4 hours. 

 

Suggestion- Maximize your time, leave enough between wedding and dinner. Guests will be fine and wait. I would have loved to do at least 6 hours- 2 hours before and 4 after. If you can, book whole day! 

 

My greatest thank you to HDC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

 

PS. we got WBA pictures, photographer at the Now Larimar, and we were so happy we did not upgrade with them. I only got to chose 24 pictures and could hardly do so out of a 100! Most of the pictures came out weird. There were a few nice ones, so if you take the package, use them as well just to double up. Dont expect more than 3 good pictures out of WBA though. The video was nice.

We used HDC for our wedding last week in Punta Cana. The photographer did a such a wonderful job with the shoot and was very professional, even though I was late to my own wedding :-(

 

We chose the 3 hour package so we got photos of the wedding, the beach and part of the reception. I would gladly recommend them again!

Choosing HDC photograpy was the best decision we made for our destination wedding! They did an amazing job and were very pleasant to work with. Our photos are amazing! The quality of their work is exceptional and we have received nothing but positives comments from our friends and family. They are very professional and they make sure they get every shot they can. Not only did they do a great job on the photos, the video came out awesome! They provided us with a highlights video and watching it felt like we could relive the moment. It was beautifully done and I highly recommend getting the photo and video package. There prices are very good!

Hands down the best photography company in the Dominican Republic. We booked with this company online from Canada for our destination wedding in Punta Cana. Their work was absolutely amazing! Stunning photography with a professionalism that made the experience worth every dollar. We booked a wedding session and a trash the dress session and every photo came out perfect! We could not thank the guys at HDC enough for making the most amazing day of our lives perfectly captured in film forever!

    • 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!
