    Ok so... Ive done alot of searches and cant come up with much... hahaha!

    My FH and I have decided photography is a huge part of this day for us! Pictures are going to last us a lifetime and so Im a little sketchy about using the Dreams Tulum photographer... but... then again... I havent even seen any of their work....

    so Im wondering... does anyone out here have any pics by the photographer at Dreams Tulum?

    seeing as the package we've booked includes the photographer I'll still probably use him/her regardless... but I am looking at affordable alternatives.... and not having much luck.... I LOVE del sol photography... but alas its way out of my price range...

    any suggestions would be great :)

    Thank you

    Joann

      Karen and I used Vanessa Vargas when we got married at Dreams Tulum and were more than happy with her. What we did was to email just about every photographer in the area down there asking for prices on custom packages to fit what we wanted and what we could afford. Just about everyone responded with a price quote that was not part of their standard package prices. We chose Vanessa, because we loved her work so much, and she was also in the price range of what we could afford.

        we're getting married in cancun and using claudia rodriguez photography, I don't know for sure if she goes to Tulum, I would think so, I think Jason may have contacted her when he was getting quotes.

          Jason- Are those your photographers pics? in your signature

          did you just do a random search? and then look at their work and then ask for quotes

            Lisa used the Dreams Tulum photographer for her wedding. Here's one of the threads: http://bestdestinati....a dreams tulum

            Photography is also very important to me so I decided to not chance it and lucked out by getting a great price with Robin De Paula.

              Wedding Directory - Find A Photographer - StrayWeddings.com - Destination Weddings in Mexico

              I found this website to be useful. It has a "packages starting at" section.

              We were just discussing using the hotel photographer just because it's part of the package in a different thread. The advice was not to hire someone & use the hotel photographer at the same time. Maybe see if they can shoot a different day for another event. Otherwise, just lose that part of your package.

              I was going to use the hotel photographer because they were within my budget of $600-$1000. Not that I don't value photography, but I'm working with a very small budget. I emailed my hotel WC & asked for info about who they use. She sent me the website & I was very unimpressed. The pictures are cheesy & very staged.

              After doing a little more research I've found there are plenty of good photographers who are within my budget in the area. I am waiting to hear back from Vanessa Vargas who Jason & Karen hired. I've also been in contact with Eduardo Machuca. I've talked to couple who were very happy with him. He's not as experienced, but I do like his photography style. His prices are also great.

              I'm very happy to see there are options as affordable as the hotel photographer that are much better.

                Lisa's pictures are really nice. Much better than the photographer my hotel uses.

                  The signature photo is by Vanessa and the photos in the 'wedding photos' link are hers. The honeymoon photos are from our own photos we took on the trip.

                  I spent quite an amount of time researching photographers down there and once I had some contenders in mind I just started emailing them all. I outlined what we wanted and did not want and asked them what they could do for us.
