        When my FI and I were in Cuba for our "research" trip (February 200 we were at the wine cave in Parc Josone, along with a table full of Canadian's (about 12). Chad struck up a conversation with them and learned that they weren't all canadian, 3 of them were Cuban. The Canadians had been life long friends with the Cubans.

        Chad iterated to them that we were interested in seeing Havana. At this point one of the Canadians (Rob) piped up and said that we should rent a car and have his Cuban friend Roly (a Cuban professional photographer and videographer) take us. We chatted and drank with this crowd for the balance of the evening.

        On Sunday of our vacay, we went to Havana with met with Roly and he offered us an "early wedding present", pictures of the two of us all over Havana! (I also think he was trying to sell his services for our wedding).

        Later the same day he shared with us a CD of photos and videos from weddings he had previously shot. They were really quite good.

        If you wanna see examples of Roly's work, check out our wed-site Chad & Amy - wedding website by mywedding.com - in the photo gallery of our travels - photos #8 and #9 were taken by Roly.

        I recently looked into Roly's prices for another girl on another board and below is the response I received from Roly's daughter Maureen.


        ...This is a message from my father:
        --------Hi my friend!!!
        I´m sorry I have not be able to check my email. Did you print the pictures of Havana tour?

        The price of the video is 200 CUC and it includes 2 DVD in the color system that you prefer.

        The photo 5 X 7 inches are 3 CUC each plus a free copy in CD if they buy 60 or more.

        I need to know the hotel because some of them have contract with diferent companies and use their own personal.

        All the best,
        Roly.
        -------------
        cell phone of my father is 52950757, if they want to call him from Varadero.



        So essentially the price for a CD of your wedding photos - with 60 print outs is $180 and the video is $200 - by format he means he'll format it for the country you are from - where some countries use a different DVD format.

        I would strongly suggest calling him, he really does do nice work - and for a very good price, you'll be hard pressed to get that offer at the hotel. Plus I know that the quality is good.

        We are taking our own photographer for our wedding and Roly, his daughter Maureen, her husband Yasser and their new baby (due Sept.) will be joining us our wedding as our guests.

        If anyone requires further info or is interested in seeing MORE pictures from our day in Havana with Roly, PM me.

        I would love to see him receive more business from Canadians! He is a great guy and a wonderful friend.

          Hi ladies, just a quick note to mention if anyone is getting married in Varadero the week of December 6th '08, I have a photographer that would like to do more than 1 wedding while she is there. We haven't booked with her because I would need to split travel costs with a fellow bride(s). She will do more than 2 so email me at cadm18@gmail.com if you are interested in sharing.

          Thanks! :)

                Hi, you are looking on last year posts:) You can try to post on facebook group as well, in your resort. I'm sure few photographers will be there in April. We are already booked but I wish you luck with finding the perfect match:)

                  Did you find that the price for your photographer was reasonable??

                      I thought she was a great price, BUT i am friends with her husband so she gave me a deal. It was totally worth every penny!!!
