      I am in the same situation as you...we booked foto caribbean for our wedding and they said they would honor our reservation and we would not be charged extra for having them as an outside photographer.  I am not totally impresseed with the pictures on their website, so I am starting to lean towards booking the new people.  I haven't found out much information on the new photographers yet....just a generic website from other destinations they have done weddings at. It's a tough decision, it's so hard to know if the new company will be any better. Let me know any info you find out about the new photographers please!  And I will also share any info I find out as well :)

       

      Thanks,

      Melanie

          Hi Melaine i will defo let you know if i find out anymore. I have asked on the facebook page too. It would be nice to see a review and a sample of pic's taken at resort so we can make a decison. It says they are part of the Kodak group and i think they are a bit dearer than FC. Will be interesting to see what they are like.
           

          I dont know their name?

            I havnt even begun to think about photography yet :/  Although I didnt get a name of the photographer that took pictures for my friends wedding at Barcelo in May. They did a beautiful job.

                    Wow! Wonder if they would have ever said anything if you hadn't asked. Thank god for these forums, eh??

                     

                    I checked out the new photogs' site. Definitely better than the old resort photogs, but not super impressive for what they're asking package-wise. I'd definitely recommend Ivan Luckie..he is an amazing photographer and his prices are actually really good for a whole day of shooting. I wanted to go with him, but I originally was going to get married at Azul Beach and they didn't allow photographers other than their "approved" list. So I went with Claudia Rodriguez, who is AMAZING, but her prices are a bit higher than I originally wanted to spend.

                      the good news is, is that now people can atleast get pretty good quality over meh quality and not have to fight over the external/daypass/2room night etc.! because i think the quality of the new peoples photos is really good. yes it is a lil expensive but the prices are worth the pics compared to foto caribe
