I am on the hunt for a photographer and need your opinions...My FI and I are getting married at the Azul Fives resort in Playa Del Carmen in Oct. 09,and are looking for a photographer located around that area. After looking at the photography from our resort I am just going to say screw it and pay the $500 outside vendor fee, because I want some kick ass photography!!
So far I have looked into Claudia Rodrigez,Elizabeth Medina, and Cecilia Dumas. Do any of you know of any other photographers in that area
We just want to make sure that we check everyone out before making a decision.
We are looking at spending no more than $3,000.
Thanks ladies!

Is Azul part of the Karishma chain (like along with EDR etc)?
If so, Claudia is one of their preferred staff photographers now and as such, there will not be a $500 fee for her. Look into that if it is a Karishma resort.
If not - sorry I cant help!
I'm using Claudia and I cant wait! She has been great thus far. Sometimes slow with emails but always so kind and answers all my questions.

If I were you (and this is what I'm doing myself) is I would fly in a photographer you like from the US.

This is what I was thinking of doing, but now there are all of those rules with our photographers having to get a working visa..just sounds messy to me!! I'm still waiting to hear from someone here in the US to see what her opinion is on all of that

Yes The Azul Fives is a Karisma resort. So if you hire someone from Claudia Rodrigez they wave the $500 fee?? I will have to contact her again!
Thanks so much!!
