      If you have decided to go with the resort photographer, have you decided on a package yet? I am still really debating the resort photographer. I'm hoping it's good because I really don't want to spend $4000 extra, but at the same time, the pictures are SO important.

        It doesn't have to cost you 4000$ extra, I flew a photographer with me from Ottawa and it cost me 2350$. Travel costs were 1550$ and her photography fee was 800$. I've also seen a few GREAT photographers who will do destination weddings for free because tehy haven't done any before and they know they have to build up a portofolio of DW before they can start charging a lot. So just look around a lot. Keep in my the photographer doesn't have to come from Calgary with you, you could get somebody from anywhere in Canada (or even in the US)

        If you are only looking at the most popular DW photographers frequently talked about on these boards, yes, it might cost 4000$, but it doesn't have to, there are many other great photogrpahers out there.

            You can't use a photographer from Mexico at the Moon Palace, if you aren't using their photog, then you have to use someone from outside of the country.

            It was becoming too stressful, so we decided to just go with the resorts photog. The wedding package we're getting comes with Photography Package A, we'll probably just add the upgrade to the highest one (they cover the ceremony and reception, 150 prints, cd proofs).

              HI! Just got back from MP and the photographer we had (Alberto) did a fantastic job! He was awesome and new exactly what he was doing. They only cover the ceremony though so you might want to make sure they will cover your reception as well. We got tons of pics and an album and a cd w/ negatives on them that I haven't even looked at yet! The pictures turned out beautiful though and we paid $480 for 62 pics plus the cd w/ negatives supposedly about 100 pics on the cd but like I said I haven't checked for sure, and a nice photo album that they supplied us with. I would definitly recommend their photog.

                Yeah, I saw some pictures from the resort photographer and they looked really nice. I'm still going to look into bringing my own photographer, but if it's too much it's alright. The resort pics put my mind at ease.

                      And by the way there were 234 pictures on my CD!! I downloaded them all and sent them to target to pick up so I can have all of them! There are no infringement rights or anything on them so it was super easy!
