Help with photographers, please!

Recommended Posts

After reading several reviews/comments on the photographer at El Dorado Royale, we have decided to go with a local, outside photographer. Now, I have too many choices, and need some help choosing! Has anyone used any of these photographers?

Vanessa Vargas

Jorge Baltazar

Cancun Studios

Lidya Solemidt

 

These are the photographers who so far have said that they're available for my date. Unfortunately, Matt and Sol are out of my price range, and Elizabeth is not available.

 

Are there ones that I am missing that I just have to check out? I would appreciate any insight.

Have you tried searching the forum - there is so much information on photogs out there, both on the ones you're looking at, as well as others.

I have spent hours searching. This forum is so overwhelming, and some of the info is a little outdated. Rather than spend my entire week searching for each one, I thought I'd try a post to see if anyone else could help me out with info, or maybe point me to the threads I've missed.

 

I've read the review on Vanessa, and saw there was a post from Cancun studios. Most of what I've found is on Matt and Elizabeth. I haven't yet heard back from Claudia as to whether she is available.

If Claudia is not available, you can hire Erick or Citalli. Both do amazing work.

SusanK posted her pictures from Citalli. I'll see if I can find them.

yes it can be overwhelming at times, but I am not sure what you mean by outdated, since the majority of reviews are from just last year. I think you would be happy with any of your choices as I have heard good things about all of those people.
Also you could always PM the people who reviewed those particular photogs and get more specific info.

You know, when thinking about this, you have to pay a $500 fee for an outside photographer. Add that with the price of these photographers packages and you might be better off flying in your own photographer.

That's what I'm doing and it's costing me $2500 to fly him in, stay at the resort for four days, and shoot my wedding.

In addition, because he's a guest at the resort, he's also shooting my welcome dinner and my trash the dress session for no additional fee. It's a really great option that you might want to consider.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
