About to book Bradley Fraser for TTD photos

Recommended Posts

I am about to book Bradley Fraser for trash the dress photos, which we are going to have taken 2 days after the wedding. I am a little nervous because this is the first thing I am booking on my own (I have been using the wedding planner at Dreams for everything else). He quoted me $450 for 1.5 hours and said he will pick us up at Dreams and take us to a beach that is about 20 minutes away to take the photos. Then he said he will send us the photos DHL for $60.00 Is this a good deal? Has anyone worked with him before that would recommend him?

 

THANK YOU!

thats a great price for bradley --- he charges $350/hour, so you arent even paying full price for your partial hour. $60 for the DHL seems sort of high though... i think there is a cheaper DHL option than that. also, make sure you are 100% clear on whether or not he is charging you for the travel time to the beach. when i originally was getting married at the church in san jose del cabo, part of my quoted price was including being charged for the 20 mins to and from the resort and hotel.

i have him booked for 5 hours on my wedding day and am very happy with my choice. he's been wonderful to deal with thus far!

Hi Kristen! My name is Jessica. Bradley is a great guy! I can personally vouch for him. He photographed our TTD--we were his first TTD session. You can see our photos if you do a search under the title Jtds2713 TTD with Bradley Fraser. The thread is on the Post Your Engagement/Wedding Photos. We were very happy with the pictures and even better, we had a lot of fun with Bradley. He was so professional and very hardworking. He spent two hours photographing us and not a minute went by that he was not taking pictures. We had more than 200 pictures! Even as we conversed he was taking shots! Also, a lot of WCs in CAbo love Bradley. He is just this cool person--no airs, no attitude and so pleasant to deal with. Please let him know that I said hi ok?

Thanks ladies! I contacted him again and he said that he will pick us up at the hotel and when we get to the beach thats when the 1.5 hours he takes photos starts. We were going to do Lover's beach but he said that would be an extra $120 and if we go to his favorite beach it would be no extra charge.

I don't know lover's beach and I don't know Bradley but as a photographer I have my favorite beaches that work for me. My guess for the reason he is offering you a discount is that he knows his beach, he knows what works and what photographs well on his beach. I would trust him at his beach since you have Jessica's voucher for him.

he is really easy to work with! so hard working and professional. are you getting all the photos (and the rights to them) on DVD? Maybe he could deliver in person...

i think thats a very fair price as well. id just ask what exactly you are going to get delivered for 60 bucks? is it just the disk of photos (would they be edited and what resolution) and or would there be prints. im guessing for 60 bucks it would be an enlargment or something because 60 bucks to send a disk is pretty steep hahah wink.gif

Hi I booked Bradley Fraser for my wedding as well. Ditto Maura's comments! He is very responsive to emails and will answer any question you have. He seems to take his job very seriously, has great ideas, knows the area, and enjoys what he does! That was what I was looking for, plus it doesn't hurt that he is reasonable in his pricing compared to some ie Juan Carlos, and he does great work! Ashlea

Hey girls (and Jean Marcus)... a comment in regards to the shipping cost. Courier services such as DHL are expensive in Cabo. Sending a couple of CD's or DVD's to the US will cost about $40.00 - $50.00. Sending a larger package such as photo albums or a coffee table book with the CD's/DVD's will set you back anywhere from $60.00 - $85.00...

 

In addition to the above, there's the cost of packaging and the 'free' but annoying trip to Customs office to get the shipment approved... ugh!

I booked Cradley Fraser for our TTD and wedding pictures. He has been great so far and I think the price is extremely resonable.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
