Hi Brides!

I am looking for any help you may have for a great photographer in Punta Cana .. that is reasonably priced .. and when i say that .. i mean. . no more than $2000 for a decent package (7+ hours of coverage) .. i feel like when looking at the prices of photographers my budget is low .. but considering my wedding is costing $3000 alone .. i don't have much room left for the photographers!

 

I am from Canada, and I hate that all these prices are in USD!! It kills me .. are there any photographers, other than Photo Phil, that charge in CAD??

I love Karina Jensen's style .. her prices aren't too bad .. but i just wanted to check and see if any brides found someone with the same style, but less $$

I'm also looking but finding it hard to stay within budget.. especially with an outside vendor fee of $300!

 

Katya Nova is amazing! ..but very high and WAY over what I can afford.

I recommend Sasha Chou Photoraphy. A very talented and friendly photographer. She loves to tavel. I am sure you can discuss good rate with her. Check out her photo. http://sashachouphotography.tumblr.com/

 

A more affordable way to spend destination wedding is hiring a local vacation photographer instead. You save a lot on travel expenses, hotel expenses and have a LOCAL photogapher to show you around. Check out PicVoyage. A new vacation photography service company. http://www.picvoyage.com which offers family photos, honeymoon, engagement, elopement and intimate destination photo service. The package is really affordable comapring to a destination wedding photographer. They can also offer local vaaction photo tours experience. I think it is pretty cool idea to save money and also get to tour the city.

This was a bride that got married in April in Punta Cana. I have no idea what her cost was but her photos are stunning and she used HDC Photography. Plus her vendor fee was even higher than what you've been quoted so her thread is probably worth a look.

Oh yes, decisions can be difficult. I got married last february at Dreams and did tons of research before finding my photographers. As a professional photo editor, I really wanted the wedding photos to be special and one thing I know is that you usually get what you pay for. One advice is do not scrimp on your photography budget. The photos are the lasting memories of the day and most of cheap photographers will just shoot and burn, giving you flat, dull, unedited photographs .Of course it all depends what you are looking for and how much photography is important to you.

 

I found Photo Souvenir ( you can find them in the vendor reviews) at the last minute and begged Renaud and Severine to commit to shooting our wedding.  They were clearly the best wedding photographers in Punta Cana, by a long shot. I also liked Katya Nova's work and Karina Jensen but  Severine and Renaud's work had it all for me with a perfect combination of lightning/composition/storytelling/creativity/pricing. Photographers like them in New York would cost at least 5000 US so their rates are very good for what they do and  you might consider the option if it is in your budget range. I personally had the best experience and my photos are outstanding ( and I am very hard to please!). I will place a full review soon and I hope it helps.

Maybe it will help one of you!

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
