We hired Claudia for our wedding at Barcelo Colonial Resort on Jan 21st, 2012. The reason we chose Claudia was that we were looking for something above what the resort offered, something really special, and a photographer that could provide us with a nice mixture of candid and standard wedding shots. We looked at Claudia's work and really liked what we saw. She was so friendly with her emails and super fast with the responses, which we really appreciate as this doesn't always happen when planning a destination wedding :)
On the day of the wedding, Claudia arrived on time and was very friendly to our wedding party. I was really worried as it seemed it was going to rain and was overcast, but thankfully the weather worked out to be ok, it wasnt too bright and there was a nice breeze, and Claudia mentioned it would be good for photography. I really enjoyed the direction she provided when we were taking "posing" shots as well. She was there for getting ready shots, and even offered to have her assistant for the day take getting ready shots of the guys, but the guys missed out on this as they we had some phone issues and were having trouble location which room they were in. During the wedding she was right there, and after the wedding we took some wonderful group shots as well as a photoshoot with the 2 of us at Playa Azul (our wedding location). The timing was absolutley perfect as we got some really good light.
Due to our humble budget, we only went for the basic package so I was really anxious to see the shots. When we got them in...wow! We were so stunned as they are soo beautiful. The quality, lighting, candids, etc, so beautiful..it brings us right back to that day. There are some priceless pictures that makes us tear us eveytime we see them, she was able to capture some really beautiful moments.
So to summarize, we are soo happy with the pictures and the service, the only regret we have was not going for a larger package but maybe next time we visit that area, we'll give Claudia a call and see if she's for an "anniversary" photo shoot :)
