    I am doing a TTD session with my photographer, Elizabeth Medina, at my resort in Playa Del Carmen. Check out her website - she is really great: Mexico Wedding Photography, Yucatan, Mexico, Elizabeth Medina photographer

    Also, I bought a second dress for the shoot. I know I will probably never use my wedding dress again, but my Mom would faint if I told her I was going to take a chance at ruining it somehow:)

      I am not sure how far away you are (I think Tulum is about half hour away) but my WC is trying to get me permission to do my TTF pictures at Xcaret Park...

      OH, and my photographer is also Elizabeth Medina. I could go on about how great she is, but I think her pictures speak for themselves :)

        ^ I e-mailed Elizabeth Medina and got her price quotes... but it mentions nothing about a TTDS? are you just splitting up your time?

          I asked her to quote me a price for the TTD and just add it on to my package.

            Where did you decide to do the shoot at? locations
            Oh yeah...I emailed Sol for some pricing and they never wrote back..any other ideas on how to contact them?? I love their work that I have seen!
            Sol & I do our best to reply immediately. First thing to consider though, if you havent received a reply is to check your JUNK MAIL FOLDER. This is the biggest problem we have right now with our reply emails. IF YOU HAVE A YAHOO ACCOUNT, watch out. I'd say this happens to me at least 1 or 2 times per week. We can't do anything about it either... Yahoo is notorious about it. We are considering adding a disclaimer about checking your junk mail folders, some which, are set to auto delete! OUCH.

            One thing to consider, we absolutely love doing these sessions with our clients. We consider them adventures and bonding time with our clients. We live here, so we know many many places, some far and remote. We invest our whole afternoon and sometimes the entire day for these sessions, documenting the entire event. We know where to go to catch sunsets on beaches (mayan riviera faces east :) )and what cenotes to hit too. We have been to swim with whale sharks in the gulf with our clients, such an adventure! The rates aren't the most inexpensive, but one must consider the investment... We shoot weddings every day of the year. We have about 8 weddings in November, 4 or so TTD sessions...a TTD session is almost as important to us as a wedding day is...

            Check out our associate too, he does these sessions and is more affordable...del Sol Photography - Associate Photographer - Vincent Guihard. He did one yesterday and is on another one today!


            Hope this helps :)

            PS. I'm here working on my wedding planning..... we are sad, the beach where we planned our wedding is GONE, hurricane Dean moved it

              ICK! forget that! hahaha! Photography seems to be taking up a big chunk of our budget! adding tax and such.... I dont want to go thru the hassell Im not too worried... the beach should be fine :)

              Thanks for the info though :)

                I also aked for a separate quite for the TTD from Elizabeth Medina and decided to add it onto the package. However, I believe if you take time out of your wedding day package, you could include it for the same price. I didn't want to take any time away from my package, so I decided to do the TTD early the next morning.

                  Ah, man! A TTD shoot at the ruins would be incredible. Shoot.

                  Well, if anyone knows of someone who did it, albeit how no-no it was, I'd love to see the pics. I'm not condoning it, but I bet its gorgeous.

                  On another note, I'm wondering....."trash" is a relative term isn't it? I mean, its sand and water....I'm hoping that if we choose to do this, I can 'save' the dress at a professional cleaners I'm not planning to wear a very ornate dress....

                    I was wondering this too?? ? How many brides were able to salvage their dress enough to pack it up real nice? ??

                    My dress is a touch ornate and Im a lil worried now!

                      Exceptionally relative. Most of our clients actually wear their dress at home for a reception.

                      Like you said, sand and water.

                      Wine laden dance floors damage dresses worse...
