            YES! I am getting married at the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo in November. We are having the ceremony in the gazebo at the Lindo so if you can get any pics of that, I would appreciate it. Also, if there are any cool locations to take pics with the bridal party, or for TTD other than on the beach that would be great as well. I asked for menus for the restaurants so we could pick our meal(s) so any feedback on the food and/or restaurants (how private is the semi-private set up, specifically the Italian restaurant) would also be good to know. At this point I'll take any info you care to share as it is probably more than I know now. Your pics are beautiful btw, so I can't wait to see what you come back with.

                Joy, from what I understand the resort charges money (200 or 300?) for an outside photographer. Apparently, because I am staying at the resort, that fee is waived. I've had brides in the past who wanted to get around this fee by telling the resort that I'm a relative. I do not condone lying but at the same time that is something that I don't even know how to get involved in without causing bad karma.

                Each photographer does travel differently. I personally roll the costs into the package, which allows me to make my own reservations and flight arrangements. So travel for me includes: airfare, food, flight and other transportation costs and then the cost of photography. Some photographers will charge a daily rate for travel as well.

                Please let me know if you have any other questions that I can help with :)

                  Sure beachbride, I will be on the lookout! I bought myself the waterproof Olympus point & shoot so I will try to nab some pictures in between with it!

                  I'm a complete foodie and I loved the El Dorado Royale (which I stayed at last year for vacation) so I might be really picky:)

                      Hi Lynn! I'm curious about the Galaxy disco. Trying to figure out if we want our reception there or the Aqua Bar or if we should rent out the Tropical Restaurant. I heard the Galaxy disco is a bit cheesy. I'd love to get your thoughts on it when you get back! Thank you!
