    Secrets Maroma Beach Bride to be

    We did not use any outside vendors other than our photographers over at Del Sol. The house DJ was just fine though, as we provided our own playlist of favorite tunes, and just told him to use discretion and keep the crowd going. He did just fine. Save on a DJ and splurge on your photog! You can check out our Del Sol slideshow here. -Kari

  3. Sol! These pictures are BEAUTIFUL. I can't imagine our photos turning out any different than they did, but the thought of you and Matt tag-teaming our wedding only makes us wonder! (and this is in no way a slight to Juan & Matt, you guys ROCKED it!!) -Evan & Kari

    Secrets Maroma Beach Bride to be

    Hi!! I too an getting married at Secrets Maroma Beach on June 17th, and I'm so lost on the wedding planner stuff and everything I need to get prepared for. So glad to have found this forum!
  5. This is a review of:

    Del Sol Photography

    Hands Down, the Best Decision...

    Pros: Matt, Juan, Matt, Juan, Juan, Matt, funny, professional, calm under pressure, and did we mention Matt? (and we hear wonderful things about Sol too :)
    Cons: That we couldn't afford more time with them
    "Whoa..."   That would be my Neo-esque reaction after seeing a preview of one of Matt's shots shortly after the ceremony.   "SERIOUSLY?! Are you freaking kidding me?!"   That would be my wife's reaction to the same shot. It also happens to be the same reaction she gave when I proposed to her nearly 2 years ago. She uses it sparingly, but Del Sol Photography elicited the same response from my wife that I got during my proposal.   That, my skeptical internet audience, is why you are reading this and why Del Sol was hands down, THE BEST DECISION we made regarding our destination wedding.     Value:   I'm not going to tell you that Del Sol is worth every penny. I'm not going to sell you on the fact that these guys are light years ahead of the game with their creativity, situational acumen, and charm. I won't tell you that Del Sol is by and large the best value in wedding photography. Period.    But, I guess I just did.   Communication:   Matt personally called to thank me for the booking within days of scheduling an online request. We talked for just a few minutes as he was en route to another wedding, but I knew he placed a premium on the relationships he built with his clients. The better he knew us leading up to our wedding, the more he understood us, and that shows in his art.
      Melissa was our constant contact, and acted as our eyes and ears in the studio. In fact, I think she was the first to reach out and tell us how much she loved our photos, teasing us with little details of the story Del Sol was preparing to tell (rather, SHOW) the world about our wedding day. She was also instrumental in getting our slideshow to us in time for a Texas reception less than 2 months following the Mexico wedding, which was huge for us.   Performance:   What can I possibly say that our slideshow doesn't? You can view it here: Kari + Evan   Overall:   If you've made it through this entire review, bravo! We read countless reviews and visited tons of websites in search of the perfect wedding photographer. Our trip to their website was the last one we needed. Make it your last one, too.   You won't regret it.   Forever and eternally grateful,   Evan & Kari - Our Slideshow - Our Resort     For those curious about which picture warranted such a response, here you go:     Please, leave your reactions in the comments :)
