  1. Hi Everyone, Yes, I am the photographer that shot Josie's wedding and was sad to read here that she's having a bad experience with me since I thought the pictures came out very nice. I have contacted her privately to find out what the issue(s) is/are and if there's anything I can do about since this was the first I heard anything and don't know if she's unhappy with the quality of the photographs, my response time before/after, attitude the day of... I want brides to have a good experience and be happy with me and their photographs (as any professional photographer would) and I wo
  2. I'm glad you wrote this review because I think that's the whole point of reviewing something, telling your experience so others can make a more informed decision. If people can't visit first then reviews are even more important! If everyone wrote glowing reviews about every resort/photographer/florist/etc. then the purpose of reviews would be eliminated. Thanks for your honest review of your experience

  4. It's really devious for someone to plot out his cheating over time, exchanging emails and planning meetings. Plenty of times he could have said to him "this is not right and I shouldn't be doing this to my family" but he didn't. They even went out in public together so it almost seems like he wanted to be caught!!! I think there are some things you just can't forgive. I don't believe in divorce but in a situation like this I would say fraud is involved since the person is not the person you thought you married. He doesn't deserve her or any woman (except for maybe the girl he cheated with) and
  5. The plus here is that you're date is a Friday and not a Saturday since I guarantee most great photogs are already booked for Saturday but may not be Friday and may be willing to work with you on price. I love Stephanie Williams Photography but I think she starts around $4K A photographer that I've personally shot with and recommend is Erika Earl. You can check her out at www.erikaearl.com
  6. How do things like this happen? People you think you know aren't who you thought they were. She waited until she was 40 to marry who she thought was "the one" and he cheated. Stay strong Sandra!! There are great guys out there!
  7. Congrats! I'll be shooting a wedding there at the end of June so be sure to check out the photos when they're posted!
  8. He was the officiant at Jennifer's wedding (Outdoor_Girl1010) yesterday and I thought he was great. Very nice when I met him before the ceremony. Said there are no photography restrictions which is typical for an outdoor wedding but just wanted to be sure. I didn't hear everything since I was busy moving around and shooting and the ceremony listed only about 20 minutes but he was smiling the whole time which is always good. I've run into a few grumpy and/or mean officiants and he was definitely not one of them. Don't think you'll need to invite him for dinner. You can if you want but he seemed
  9. Don't know how much you need to stick to a Saturday wedding date but most if not all vendors will offer discounts for off-season or weekday weddings (i.e. Friday ceremony?) Most of your guests are staying longer than just a couple days anyway so why not have your ceremony on Sunday or even better a Thursday when the resorts aren't as busy? You'll get better service (in my opinion) since they won't have multiple weddings happening at the same time and you'll get MUCH better prices. Vendors typically only do one wedding a day so time is valuable on Saturday but other days not so much
  10. I know how all you brides are interested in photos since reading reviews about a resort is one thing but, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words! I had the opportunity to photograph Jennifer (Outdoor_Girl1010) and Cory's wedding yesterday at the Paradisus Palma Real in Punta Cana and it was amazing. Here are some of the photos and I will add a slideshow soon...

I too require payment in full prior to the wedding especially for DW but in the US as well. If couples want to order additional products (i.e. albums, prints, canvas prints, etc), stuff that is not included in their package, they can definitely do so and pay at a later date. So I would
  12. Hi All, Sorry I haven't been on here all weekend!! I planned to post the winner on Friday before a wedding that I shot on Saturday but didn't get a chance Anyway, there were TONS of great entries and I enjoyed reading them all. I am going to contact everyone who didn't win individually. Many who had weddings on Fridays or Sundays didn't get chosen just based on dates available and my being booked on that Saturday and not wanting to cut it too close with travel. With all of that being said, it was too difficult to just choose one winner so there are two.... Marissa and Patrick who

On a side note i have also just posted a :feels too good to be true i just won a free vacation post". i'll copy and paste what i wrote there because i'm really confused and would love your insight.
  14. I have been to Moon Palace once to eat dinner and will be there again in April 2010 and it is a gorgeous resort! Close to the hotel zone of Cancun but also off by itself and very spread out.
