YOU WILL LOVE MIKE! You know you have the right vendor when you give them a huge and not a hand shake! My husband said Mike was the best person we worked with in Mexico.
I was so confused on how to choose a photographer. It is a huge decision and I was scared of making the wrong choice. Once I looked at the reviews online I liked Mexican Wedding Photo. After waiting 14 days for Lomas to respond, I contacted Mexican Wedding Photo myself. A long response time isn’t very comforting for brides-to-be. And Mike at Mexican Wedding Photo understands that. He responded normally within minutes or within the day of. Which was great. He helped me choose a package that would work for me. I loved that while he was with my fiancé and me for getting ready photos his assistant was at the ceremony site getting photos. I loved how they captured all the special moments. There are so many things you can spend money on for the ceremony that you cannot take home with you. Photography is something you will have forever. My only regret is we didn’t have the photographers for longer. We had 3 hours and thought that would be enough. Had we had longer I would have had photos taken around the resort. Don’t get me wrong we got tons of great photos!!
I love our photos! They are great! Our ceremony was Saturday and we met Mike Wednesday and he had put together a photo album and given CDs of all of our photos and also prints. It was great to have a photo album to show people when we got home. It would have taken me forever to decide on photos and to have them printed and put together an album. Everyone loves the photos.
A trend for 2014 is an unplugged wedding. It is controversial. After looking at tons of photos where guests were out stretching in the isle and blocking the photographers or when photos of audience were taken and all you saw was screens and lenses and not their faces I knew I wanted something different. Destination weddings are very intimate. You have closer shots of your guests. The ceremony space is beautiful and magical. And cell phones and outstretched arms can ruin a little bit of the magic. One of the best parts was seeing our guests’ faces and having moments with them during the ceremony. Moments of them being in the moment. In a pre departure email with wedding weekend details I asked:
“Since the ceremony is very intimate and you will be part of the photos and memories, we ask that you be fully present by turning off your cell phone and leaving your camera in the bag. (If Jessica can do it, you can too J.) We have the photography covered, so be sure to give them your best smile, not a picture of your camera or cell. J We want you to enjoy the beauty of Mexico and share in this special moment with us. You are all important to us, and because of this, after the ceremony we will have a group photo, and once home we will share all the professional photos with you. The greatest gift you can give us today is just being fully here with us, enjoying every minute.”
The photos turned out great! And I shared them with all the guests through shutterfly. And emailed each person all the photos they were in.
Choose Mexican Wedding Photo you won’t regret it.
