Special, Personal Service

Our experience with Asia and Niko was absolutely amazing. They both take their work very seriously while still having fun - photography (and capturing of love) is something they are so passionate about. This comes through in their work and their demeanor and is a major reason we chose them for our wedding.

They took the time to get to know us as a couple and made our relationship with them more of a friendship than a working relationship. From the first day we chatted via video chat, we fell in love! Asia made every nuance possible - we wanted our engagement photos taken in our home city of NYC and to be able to use the same photographer for our destination wedding in Casa De Campo, and they made this work seamlessly on their end.

From the moment we got our engagement photos from NYC, we knew we had made the right decision. The trust I felt in Asia left me feeling stress-free on our wedding day - what more can you ask for as a bride? When, after the wedding day, Asia felt we didn't have enough couple portraits, she asked us to get back into our wedding gear for some follow up photos a week later... I mean.. who does that? She met us at another destination for a few hours to get some insanely amazing shots.

The fact is that Asia and her team will go above and beyond to make sure that their clients are satisfied and we felt that every step of the way. To say that these two exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. We feel so lucky to have had them as our wedding photo/videographers and now, as lifelong friends!

Best Decision Ever!

Choosing Asia, Niko, and their team was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. They also suggested our amazing wedding planner so we also have them to thank for that!

We absolutely love our wedding photos and video and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for photography. They knew the location and the light and were able to capture everything we wanted which was no easy feat with 5 different locations throughout the day to photograph.

We hired them from the USA and did not meet them in person (other than facetime) until the day of our wedding in the Dominican Republic. Some might have been nervous about this but I knew from seeing their work and speaking to them that we would not be disappointed and we weren't. If you are trying to decide, just go ahead and book them. You will not regret it!

Gorgeous photos & extraordinary staff

We were so lucky to find Asia and her team for our weddings. From the first video chat with Asia to our first in-person meeting in rainy NYC, we were always greeted with Asia’s warmth, excitement, and creativity.

Asia was one of the best decisions we made and one of the first vendors that we booked. We wanted to have the same photographer for our NYC wedding and our smaller destination wedding in DR and Asia made that dream a reality with a custom package for two locations.

We loved the bright, airy, and classic look of her work and fell in love with Niko’s video style. Spending time with her always felt like being with family and I can honestly say she and her team have definitely become a big part of ours.

Engagement in NYC
Niko & Asia came up to NYC for our engagement photos and they honestly exceeded our expectations because every photo in our gallery was stunning work of art, we could not believe it was even us in the photos!

Wedding Day in NYC
Leading up to the wedding day we worked closely with Asia to discuss some portraits with our families and the day-of plan. She and her team linked up seamlessly with our wedding planner and helped us to organize the day to maximize the light during the day and as many special shots as we could get.
We did a walk through the venue a few days before which was incredibly helpful. When we received our gallery, we could not believe how many special moments they captured. We were so lucky to relive all of the emotions of our big day because each photo told a story.

We cannot wait to see them again in a little over a month for photos in Altos De Chavon and our wedding in Dreams Dominicus. We highly recommend Asia and her team without any hesitation, the quality of work speaks for itself but more importantly, Asia and her folks are incredibly friendly and always a pleasure to work with. THANK YOU so much for capturing our big day(s)!

We are thankful to have met you both...

I can honestly say that I fell in love with your work the day I found your Instagram page and your website. It was at that moment that I decided that these people MUST photograph our wedding. Simply put, the images that you create are stunning and speak to people in the same way classic paintings can speak to people.

I am thankful that we found you both and that it was you guys who captured the memories of our wedding. After seeing your work, no one else could have done it. You capture the soul of the person you shoot with your camera. Thank you for being a part of our wedding experience!

As we all ring in the new year, I must tell you that the images and videos from our wedding have brought happiness not just to Cathy and me, but honestly to everyone we’ve shared our experiences with!!! From our family, friends, coworkers, and even the friends and coworkers of our parents - everyone and I do mean everyone, is in love with the pictures we’ve shared with them. So please keep doing what you do, your art makes people happy!!

Cathy and I are eternally grateful to have crossed paths with you both and we could not be any happier with the way everything turned out!!

Thank you again, for your obsessive attention to detail and perfectionism!!!! Wishing you continued success and happiness in 2018!!

Their work is just incredible, it is truly ART!

Where do I begin?! Asia & Niko were the first vendors I booked after the venue. I saw their work and stalked them all over the Internet and just knew I had to have them. Their work is just incredible, it is truly ART!
I felt that if there was one thing I was going to splurge on it was going to be the photos because you have them forever and I feel I got every penny’s worth out of my investment.

We love Asia and Niko so much, we felt like I had known them for years and they treated us like family. We will never forget their kindness and hospitality at both the wedding and Rock the Dress session at Altos de Chavon- they were more than just photographers for us- they calmed our nerves on the wedding day/night and took care of everything at our Rock the Dress session, it was a truly stress-free experience.

The photos were well worth the wait- I can’t stop looking at them… they seriously look like something out of a magazine. Asia & Niko made everything in our wedding and Rock the Dress session look so magical and dreamy. In fact, the photos Asia & Niko took were so beautiful that they were featured in a popular wedding blog and I have even come across some on Pinterest!

We can’t say thank you enough to them for the incredible photographs that we will cherish forever. I’m already thinking of excuses to come back to DR for another amazing photo session.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

My husband Zach and I decided to take our honeymoon in the Dominican Republic. Since we never got formal engagement photos, we thought it might be fun to do portraits on the honeymoon - especially because otherwise we'd only have those awkwardly posed photos taken by random strangers.

Anyway, Asia was highly recommended to us by our wedding coordinator (Claire Duran), and we immediately saw why. Asia was extremely prepared, professional, courteous, patient, creative and inventive, and she coached the session in such a way that we felt like we were just hanging out with a friend who happened to be taking photos of us. She made us feel so comfortable, and we had the time of our lives with her. Niko joined us for one of the three shoots (we did one in each location we visited while on the island), and he had his own distinct style, which totally added to the overall experience!

They both know the ins and outs of the DR, so they helped us choose the ideal locations for the shoots (which was great because we wouldn't have known to visit these cool sites otherwise!). We couldn't be more thrilled with the final product.

Our family and friends are in awe of how stunning, gorgeous, and perfect these photos are. We are SO happy we went with Asia Pimentel Photography for this shoot, and we want to HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone who plans on visiting the Dominican Republic for a proposal, wedding, honeymoon, or anything worthy of its own portrait session. Your money will be very well spent, and you'll forever be grateful you chose to work with Asia.

Photographer and videographer who push for perfection!

Planning a wedding 2000+ miles away in a country you’ve never been to, paired with the detailed nature of an interior designer certainly brought out my “Type A”. But Asia and Niko were up to the challenge, always with a relaxed helpful nature!

Their work stood out immediately when I came across a photo of their Pinterest and every step of our 18-month engagement they fulfilled our high hopes. Leading up to the wedding they were warm, engaging, and did everything they could to get to know us as a couple from a remote location in Minnesota.

They were resourceful with vendor recommendations, knowledge of the island we were traveling to, and even had tips to prepare us for wedding day perfection when it came to sun care hah! I think what I was most appreciative of was that they were assertive with capturing moments of our day.
That, in addition to the coaching they provided us taking photos in front of strangers on the beach, providing us icebreakers when we felt “stiff” or “awkward” allowed them to capture our TRUE feelings we felt that day instead of perhaps the nerves of standing before numerous friends and family on display.

Our photography and videography were THE single most important thing we spent money on for our wedding and Asia and Niko made sure that the money we spent on photography and videography left us with lasting images of the happiest memories on the best day of our lives. Their talent and professionalism truly made the photos and videos we got back simply amazing!

Best Family beach pictures!

My parent's 50th anniversary brought together my brother's family as well as mine and our parents to the Dominican Republic. As a gift for my parents, we decided to get them a really beautiful photography session to commemorate the occasion.

Being a graphic designer/creative director for a large Memphis advertising agency, I’ve worked with many photographers from around the world and was told to scout a photographer that I thought could best capture the spirit of our family. I am very critical of photographers I use, as to make sure they aren’t your everyday person that just picked up a camera nor would they do the cheesy beach photos.

That was when we found Asia, her photos capture the candidness and genuine emotion of every photo. She was a little pricey but as a firm believer in you get what you pay for, she gave us twice as long than other photographers (which helps when trying to photograph 4 young children), has a glowing personality, gave us all the photos she took (color corrected), not just the select 15 she liked and worked with us on the beach until we were completely happy with what she had gotten.

I can’t recommend Asia enough if you are in the market for a fantastic photographer for your special occasion.

"Very friendly and professional, great communication!"

We initially chose Asia and Niko as we really liked the softer, more natural look of their photos. We're so thankful we chose them to shoot our wedding in Punta Cana. Asia and Niko really took the time to get to know us and make us feel at ease with them. We had done a few video chats with Asia prior to going to Punta Cana and her warmth and huge smile really helped us to feel comfortable with her even before we met in person.

With regards to the actual day of the wedding, they made sure to get all the shots we had asked for earlier and more. During the ceremony and reception, we hardly noticed them, which made for great candid photos. They worked hard to get our photos delivered to us and kept us informed of everything that was going on when they were preparing the photos and videos. When we received our photos and video, we couldn’t have been happier. The photos looked amazing, and really captured so many moments that happened throughout the day. Looking at them really brings us right back into those moments.

Overall, we would highly recommend Asia and Niko to any couple that is considering them. They are amazing people, communication with them is great whether electronic or in person, and the quality of their work is top-notch.

Highly, highly recommended!!

Niko was our wedding photographer at Sanctuary Cap Cana in May and we couldn't have been happier!

We were a little apprehensive about finding a photographer from a distance (we live in Atlanta), but he and Asia immediately put us at ease by suggesting a Skype call for face-to-face introductions. There is just something so reassuring about connecting with them in this way!

They were very professional throughout the whole process and did a wonderful job of getting to know us as a couple through their thorough questionnaire. Since we hadn't been to the DR prior to our wedding, it was really helpful that they were familiar with the location.

They made a lot of recommendations on the timeline of the day and things to ask of the resort. On the day of the wedding, everything went smoothly and according to plan! We had initially reached out to Asia and Niko because we loved their photography style - and we were not disappointed. Our pictures turned out great and we're so happy we have such great images of our best day ever.

Niko was a hit with our guests, and even took my brother who has an interest in photography under his wing and taught him a few tricks. I just thought that was the best. Highly, highly recommended!!
