I set up our time frame the exact same way. We took pictures during the cocktail hour. Funever took pictures of our cocktail/rehearsal dinner and they were nice. Some recent brides have used them for all of their photos as well. I think Lisa and Di had a few pics included with their package and they came out nice. They also have a website you can google to see what their work is like. Lastly, you can do a search of this thread for Funever to pull up what people have said. The white linens they used for our wedding had little swirl designs built in. They were beautiful. We put an aqua colored overlay on top and it was perfect.

Also, has anyone used or heard anything about Funever photos? The photo vendor that is included (for the ceremony) at least? My family takes an insane amount of photos and although I don't want to assign anyone to "take pictures" that day, my FI and I are having trouble rationalizing the cost of having a photographer to document the whole day. The only thing I do want is some group pictures (we have about 35 guests) and then some of just us, our wedding party, and with our families. My guess is it would take about an hour to get these photos, but I can't figure out when to do that. I don't want to really ruin the "flow" of anything. Right now, we are scheduled for:
- Ceremony at the Gazebo: 4-4:30pm
- Cocktail Hour at Gazebo: 4:30-5:30pm
- Reception on beach: 5:30 - 9:30pm
Has anyone included a "break" in the schedule for pictures? I would like them taken on the beach.
I gave mine as soon as I got there and they returned it the next evening. You should do it as soon as you get there for peace of mind.

My phtg had in his contract that we had to include meals for 2. We sat him at a table with guests because we knew he would only been sitting there for about 15 min. anyway.
We loved our WC and tipped her $100. 48 days, HOW EXCITING!

Do people usually sit the photographer (and assistant) at a table with guests for dinner? Or just leave them to eat on their own at some point? Either way is fine by me, just not sure what the norm is (we're using Sascha from Cancun Photos)....
Also any suggestions on tipping vendors (photographer, DJ... and do most people tip the wedding coordinator too?)?
