    Thanks for the pics (i decided not to post them since everyone seemed to email, and I don't want to overload the forum) The views aren't horrible, and I will definetely not be shooting from the angle that this photographer kept shooting at. Is anyone else going to have the ceremony off center now, and are you worried it won't look right not being aligned with the isle? I keep seeing a lot of Dreams Cancun girls with the fish-eye pics.... is this the resort photog's thing or is this a new trend? I guess I'm really not digging it. I think one fish eye panoramic might be cool, but not all my pics. Other than that, the weddings were very beautiful... I hope some of those brides are on this forum and post a review soon!!

          I've emailed 13 brides so no need to post the pics now. It is definitely not the same view as before but the pics made me feel much better. The facebook pics are terrible and the rocks look like an eye sore but it's not as bad once you see everything set up. I'm sure the photographers will have lots of ways of getting around having the rocks and the beach in much of the picture. I have 6 bridesmaids and groomsmen so I'm hoping they will hide the rocks a bit. haha

          So glad I could help and send the pics ladies! If Claudia decides to send me more pics to further ease my mind I will share them as well. The resort photographer took all the pics.

          Does anyone have some leads on good photographers? I like Moments that Matter but Claudia Rodriquez does pics and video and I really want a video. I see them and they make me cry. I want one! haha

            I am bringing my own photographer from the states. I found various photographers who I loved, all who regularly charged from $3000-5000 to shoot a wedding locally. I emailed them all an offer that I surprisingly found a lot of them would take! I said, how about a free 3 day all expense paid vacation to Dreams Cancun in turn for shooting my wedding.

            My photographer and her assistant will shoot 8hrs of my wedding day and a TTD the next day, and what I spent on their trip was less than Juan Navarro charges for 4hrs of shooting. And they are giving me the CD with all pics. They're happy, I'm happy. I highly recommend! And no "vendor displacement" fee by the resort because they are staying at Dreams as a guest.

              The video that comes with the Wedding package is really good. I LOVE mine. It was perfect. He shot the whole Ceremony and he was shooting the whole time we were taking pictures and then he set it all to music. The only thing I wish i would have done is asked him to include our First Dance song (Then-Brad Paisley)..Other than that, it was so great!

              I used the Resort photog that came with my package and I really liked my pics. I used to have the link but once they all got wiped out I never put it back up. If I can find them I will post the link :)

                OK..Found it....Just note that since these are small versions of the pictures...the ones that have alot of people in there seem blurry or far away...they aren't. The real versions look 100 X better :)
                I thought these were great considering he was the resort Photographer :)

                  i always loved your pics! and it's so nice to see great pics and a great experience with the resort photog! did you say anything to him about the fish eye lense (one way or the other)? your fish eye pics look awesome, i just don't want too many..

                    Aww thanks! I didn't say anything to him, he kind of just took over, which was fine with me. I didn't think he would be so into it...since I am sure he wasn't being paid much from the resot, but he really was.
                    I didn't have a preference but if u did, I'm sure all u would have to do is tell him :)

                      Hi everyone,

                      Im sort of freaking out and wondering if you guys can help me. We have had our wedding date December 29, 2010 booked now for a year and we are realizing that prices to go during that time from Canada are almost $4000 per person so we have to change our wedding date up a week or two and it will only cost half the price or less because its not the week of Christmas. I emailed Claudia but what I'm wondering is what is the easiest way to get a hold of her? I know some people on here have said that they have tried calling, did this work? I need to know if I can change the date fast because the travel agent is holding some flights for me but I'm afraid that it will take forever for Claudia to email me back because the last time I sent her an email was in September and she still hasn't gotten back to me!
