  1. UPDATED EMAIL: if you would like to see pictures, wedding video, or have any questions please email me at portzdawn@gmail.com
  2. I am soooo sorry but I'm just now seeing these comments/questions. I hope it's not too late. I had no idea anyone posted anything!! I only get notified if someone sends me a personal message which I've been answering. For those of you asking about the Styling Trio.... I paid $550 which included hair, airbrush makeup, & false lashes + a trial plus Adrian himself did my makeup. I believe it's $475 for another make up artist. It was a lot of money but I've never felt & looked that beautiful, ever! Plus it was HOT & my make up stayed on all night!! Ladies, you know how important that is My bridal party did not have their hair & make up done by the styling trio but if they did it would have been $160 per person for hair, make up, lashes OR $90 for hair. The resort charges more than that for a hair style. I think they wanted $120. A couple of my guests were hairstylists so they did my bridesmaids hair. Photographer-If you're photographer is staying on property then you do not have to pay the vendor fee of $500. If anyone would like to see my pictures, email me at simpliciousmugs@gmail.com & I'll send you the links.
  3. I'm looking into having PlayaWeddings for my photographer/videographer. Has anyone used them before? Need reviews please & if you're willing to share pics & videos! Thanks!
  4. @mention Can you send me some recommendations? I'd prefer to go with a company that specializes in both photography & cinematography. Thank you.
  5. I'm in the same situation as @NJBRIDE2014. I'm currently trying to figure out if I want Ocean Photo Studio to be my photographer or pay the fee to hire a professional one. I've seen some videos from Ocean Studios but I'm wanting more cinematography, which can be pricey. Can you please post or send a video? NJBRIDE2014-have you decided yet on your photographer? Thanks!
  6. What is the average cost of a wedding photographer + video in Mexico? I found one I love (Sarani Photography) but more than I budgeted for....$5700 for 6 hrs, high resolution digital pics on cd with rights, mini video, + long video. What should I do...got with the pricey photographer, who I absolutely love OR go with the resort photographer (Ocean Photo Studio) which is about 1/2 the cost?
  7. Average Cost of Photographer + Video in Mexico?

  8. I'm in the process of deciding whether or not to have Sarani do my wedding for photos/video verses the resort photographer-Ocean Photo Studio. It's not that I don't want Sarani; she's my top choice. Her work looks fabulous! My problem is the cost. I wasn't expecting to pay that much but I also don't want to regret not having a professional photographer. What I really like about Sarani is the videos they make. Would you be willing to share your video with me? Thank you!
  9. I'm getting married July 26, 2014 at Barcelo Maya Palace in Riviera Maya. I'm completely stressed and confused with what to do with the photographer. The Ocean Photo Studio is the onsite resort photographer and it looks like they take good pictures, however, they are very pricey. If I'm going to pay a lot for photos and a video, should I venture out and hire a different photographer? If so, can anyone recommend a great photographer who captures vibrant pictures of the natural, tropical beauty that Mexico has to offer?
  10. A perfect place for a perfect wedding...

    Pros: Scenery, beaches, pools, food, rooms, wedding coordinator, all amenities, service...everything!
    Cons: Spa
