      We are just sticking with the included pics that were in our wedding package, but for our AHR we are paying $1,200 for 6+ hours and full res copies. There is probably more, but I forget...

      I didn't want to commit to a photog at the resort that wouldn't be that great and I didn't have the budget to fly in a photog. I am giving out photoshare cards and just hoping that between all the guests and the ones the resort photog takes, there should be some good ones.

          Sorry about my ignorance, but what is a photoshare card?
          Thanks

            There are a few threads on here that discuss it and which websites are best. Basically though, it's an account that you open for people to upload their high-res pictures too and anyone with the account name and password can purchase or have access to view. I ordered 100 free postcards from Vistaprint, here are the pics...

                I think we are spending about $3500 but we are really picky about our pics and wanted a high res cd/dvd with all the pics on it as well. It also includes a photobook and 6 hours of time.. can't remember what else off the top of my head.

                    Hello

                    We are getting married at the El Dorado and ever since planning the wedding I have always thought I would spend a large part of my budget on photography as this is going to be the main aspect I will rely on in years to come to help remember the day, so very important to me. I chose Vannessa Vargas and went for her 3rd option of around $1500.

                    She is great and quick to respond if you get in touch.

                    Good luck x
