I saw other posts about the pictures being "ceremony only". On the pricing sheet she gave me I don't see anything about ceremony only, but it does say 1 hr or more depending on the package, so I should get more than the ceremony right?
    I've emailed the photographer and got no response as yet, I sent it Sunday!

    It didn't say ceremony only on the sheet I got until I got the contract! I'm still waiting to see if I get the photographer for the 1 - 2 hours it says on the sheet or they try and say its just for the 20 mins! it better not be lol because if it is i'm dropping the whole package

      It looks like his website is currently down. That is the correct website.

        Ok so this is the response i've just got :

        "The photos for the wedding package is a special package that covers only ceremony and a few shots after ceremony with family and friends, if you want the photographer stays for the reception, then you need an upgraded package."

        Now I mean am I being thick or is that 50 shots of all the same stuff!! I'm furious again (I'm starting to have proper anger management problems lol) I don't want them there for the whole reception just for the 2 hours i'm paying for arrgggg - think dreams might have had it for me!

            I just sent Daniella another email about this with a copy of my contract that does not say anything about ceremony only. We will see what comes of that.

                  Hi All, I have just been reading the last page of postings regarding the 50 photos. I do not know how they can justify taking 50 photos of just the ceremony. I am glad I am just in the planning stages and haven't actually booked anything for definate. I am now thinking it is not such a good idea paying for the Ultimate Package.

                  What is everyone else thinking?

                  Thanks
                  Tracy

                    OK, I think this is how it works. You get the photographer for an hour? Is that right? He takes pictures of the wedding and of family friends and the two of you after the wedding. He takes more than 50. THEN you pick the 50 pictures you want for the package. If you want more of the pictures I am sure you can buy them. If you go and look at the photographer prices in Cancun you will see that it is SUPER expensive to get a package. For example I am paying 2000 dollars for mine.

                      I think you are right. That's the way I understand it. They take more pictures than that and then I'm not sure if they pick or if you pick the final pictures. I'm paying for my photo package seperately, but I just got an email from Claudia confirming you get more than just the ceremony. Here was my email to her:

                      Hi Claudia,

                      I have one additional question. This package is not for the "ceremony only" right? He can take photographs of my family and of Mitch and I near the beach and the lighthouse after the ceremony and it will be included in the package right? As long as it's within the time limit? I just wanted to clarify.

                      She emailed back "Yes correct". So is the "ceremony only" only if you have it included in your wedding package? I'm not sure.
