THANKS!

    The pictures that come with the package are taken by Juan Navarro. In order to hire Claudia Rodriguez, you would have to hire her directly. I agree that 45 minutes is not enough for pictures. I had assumed that it would be at least an hour. I am still very unhappy that I have only two choices of photographers and Claudia is booked for my date. I liked it much better when we were able to bring in our own photographers :) I think I have Claudia's rates. I will try to PM them to you.

      Its only Juan Navarro that takes then and no he is part of the package, if you want extra photographs I think you have to upgrade through the hotel, however I'm gonna work on that one - i've tried to email him but he ignores them! and its 40 mins not 45!! if you are looking for 6 hours its going to cost you mega bucks because Claudia is not cheap and neither is Juan Navaro if you get him on upgrade

      You and me both I made this point to the WC but as usual they've ignored me! The rates are actually on here somewhere I found them the other day - do a seach. If I had a choice I would be using a diff photographer, a one from this site but I couldn't afford to pay for him and a stay and to be truthful I wouldn't want to get him busted

        So this whole Dreams package thing is turning out to be a joke! I thought I was getting a good deal when I decided on paying for their ultimate package but they don't explain all these little loop holes like this one! My package includes pictures but that only includes 40 mins of a photographer, so if I bought the extra minimum package I would be paying $470 for an extra 20 min or would I get an extra hour? And would the 36 photos on the CD be the photos I should have already received from the package I bought or will they be extra?

        Has any one checked out the prices for the VIP flowers and cakes!? Again flowers and a cake are included in the package I purchased but the flowers I really want are in the VIP package and they range from $130-200 extra! Same things with the cake! You would think if you purchased a package they would give you a discounted rate if you wanted to upgrade. I don't see the benefit in buying a package now!

          About the pics - I really don't know the answer - I've tried asking and I don't get a proper response. If you upgrade surely they have to give you the lot but I really don't know that is something you will need to ask them direct.

          Again the same with the flowers, the cake I'm not upgrading everyone has said its pointless so i'm going with that. I've got to pay the deposit soon and I am seriously thinking of changing everything, but that is basically because when I first thought there would be 30 people now it looks like there will be 5 including me and FI lol

            OK, I am another confused bride here.

            I am going to use the ultimate package, and on the package, it lists 50 color photo and album. Base on what you girls said, is that means the photographer is only going to be at my wedding for 40 minutes, and then give me 50 pictures? that's like 2 pictures in 1 minute... XD

            Any explanation will help, thanks!!!

              Yep thats exactly it!! I've asked how and not got any explanation so if you get one let me know!

              I've asked if I can ditch the video for more time, they said yes but haven't clarified it!

                Here is what Daniella had told me about it:

                The 50 pictures you have included on your wedding package covers the
                ceremony and then a photo studio by the beach and different locations of the
                hotel.

                  But if the photographer is only going to be there for 40 minutes, can't really get to many places...umm...

                    I dont know where the 40 minutes came from, did one of the WCs say that specifically to someone? I know the Ultimate includes 50 pictures in an album so I would assume he would take more then that? All I know is that was Daniella's response to my question about the photography. I decided the pics were very important to me so I hired Citlalli from Claudia's group.

                      Yea, I wanted to know how did that number come out too.

                      Seriously, I was looking at Juan's pictures, I hate his negative effects! I would just ask for all color and tune it myself if I want effects... XP
