HDC Photo

Recommended Posts

Hands down the best photography company in Punta Cana. We booked with this company online from Canada for our destination wedding at Dreams 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!

Our experience with HDC Photography was amazing!

 

We got married at the Dreams Palm Beach resort Nov17/2012

 

One of the most stressful things about planning my destination wedding was choosing a photographer. Not being able to meet in person with them made me a little anxious. But my dealings with Arnaud were wonderful. He was able to answer all my questions via e-mail and was quick to respond. 

 

On the day i had a little freakout as our schedule had to change. I called Arnaud and all was adjusted without any trouble. 

 

Our Photographer Milan and Vidoegrapher Marco were excellent! They were creative and easy to work with. They captured some of the most amazing moments and also were willing to take suggestions.

 

We left our resort only 2 days after the wedding so we were unable to get our photos before we left but as promised within 4 days our online website was up and running and the pictures were stunning!

 

Ordering the prints and the photobook were also super easy. 

Thank you so much to HDC for making it such a positive experience.

I will recommend HDC to any brides looking for a company to capture the essence of their special day!!

It's true that HDC photography is a wonderful service!   We used them for our wedding in Punta Cana on Jan 5, 2013.  They were extremely professional, courteous, and paid lots of attention to detail.  Importantly, they were extremely quick to respond to your emails / questions / and any concerns before the wedding day ( relieved lots of anxiety when you are planning a wedding long distance)!.   Their service was friendly and engaging - both my husband and I can get a little self conscious around the camera, but they made us feel very much at ease.   Knowing we are leaving soon after the weddeing day, they were also able to give us a disc of ALL the digital photos, as well as the video two days after the wedding (!).   Their price is very reasonable for the level of service you get, and  I cannot recommend them enough!

We just got back from our wedding and I have to thank everyone's previous comments that pushed me to book HDC. We are SOO happy with all of our pictures. Miljan was our photographer and he was awesome to work with. You can tell he just loves his job. His creativity and experience gave us some of the most beautiful shots we could ever ask for. He knew just how to get the perfect picture without including the gazers on the beach :)

Just back from our Daughters wedding This photographer is amazing. We were a little nervous going with a company off the resort but soso glad we did.The pricing we was great for what we received (so many pictures). They were on time as promised ,very professional, and even had a diso of pictuers and all enlargements picked out before they left on Thursday. Some of the shots they took made you think who would think of doing a shot like that, Again all I can say is amazing. HDC Photo ....so glad I found you....Thank you Thank you Thank for perft pictures...

We got married in June 2012 at Dreams Punta cana and was so scared about everything going wrong. The thing that most worried us was our wedding photographs as this was the main reason we travelled so far to capture every single moment of paradise. And this was the case exactly!!!! HTC ensured our pictures were perfect and the effects they used were AMAZING!!!! Have you ever seen a picture with the sun setting making a silhouette of each person???? WOW!!!!!! HTC exceeded my expectations and our photographer was right on time to capture every moment. Everybody who has seen our pictures are amazed at the quality. What made me most happy was that Arnaud was there the next day with all the prints and the pictures on computer already edited!!!!! I would recommend HTC any day and the price was reasonable too. Thank you HDC for making our day so special!!!!

You cannot go wrong with HDC. The reviews I read made me comfortable booking with them and the ease of working with them and their responsiveness via email before our wedding made me even more at ease. Once we got there everything was even better.

 

Our photographer, Milan, was great from the start and made us very relaxed and comfortable. Right from the start my wife said he was joking with them in the bridal suite and helping calm her down and her mother and sister loved him. He came out and spoke with me while I waited from my bride and told me about some of the shots he would be getting and giving me tips to help make the shots come out best. And he just chatted with my brother and I. He raved about Pastor Rick and Rick raved about HDC (separately away from each other) so that helped put me at ease that we made great choices. Once the ceremony started he was snapping away but not in the way at all and didn't impact our ceremony at all - yet he got so many great pictures. 

 

Once our cocktail reception started it was almost like he was a guest rather than a photographer. He was professional and working hard but he didn't get in the way or bother anyone but instead he was so friendly and easy to get along with that everyone at our wedding loved him. So he would flow through the crowd taking pictures without really standing out as "the photographer". When he wanted to get a posed or group shot people were happy to do so. And he would scan the crowd and find great moments to shoot. Some of my favorite pictures are from that cocktail hour because they really capture the fun, friendships, and real joy of the day. 

 

He was very flexible with when we wanted to do group shots on the beach - he did urge us to do so before a certain time because of lighting and did the same at the dinner but he explained it us and gave us the power to make decisions rather than boss us around (which I've seen from wedding photographers before). When we wanted to wait for the group shots so that everyone could enjoy the cocktail hour he said no problem. Whatever we wanted he would make it work and make it work amazingly. He was great with suggesting poses or particular shots.

 

We feel so blessed and lucky to have chosen HDC and gotten Milan as our photographer. His personality and style was perfect for us and for our crowd. Most importantly, the photographs were so amazing! And we met with Arnaud just a few days later to go through our photographs and he was great offering suggestions and explain options for sizes, package additions, etc, etc. We were so happy to not only see the photographs and pick them out but we had our copies before we left DR. Our book came as scheduled after we were home.

 

Go with HDC and you won't have to worry about your photographs!

    • 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!
