Who was your photographer? Why did you love them?

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies,

I am desperately trying to lock down a photographer but the $5500 plus bill that comes with them, is giving me anxiety. Please help.

If you had a photographer you loved in PV that was $5500 or under, please help. I would love your input before I spend the money without any feedback from you, the ones I trust the most to be honest.


Here is what I am looking for:

All day coverage day of

Night before coverage

trashing of the dress

High resolution CD of all photos

Photo enhancing


(am I asking for too much for that price?)


Any advise..... Cheers

I used Elizabeth Lloyd. I think you could all that from her in under $5500. I can't say if the pictures were great though. I have yet to see one since the wedding happened last week. She has a beautiful portfolio though.

For that price, I think you could definitely find someone great. I think it is reasonable to ask for complete day of coverage, and trash the dress session, and a disk of images. Coverage the day before might be asking for a little bit too much. Could you use photos from friends for the day before?

IMO spending money on your photographer is one of the most important budget decisions you have to make. I have seen weddings that were beautifully set up, but they didn't hire a good photographer and IMO their pictures didn't capture how great the wedding was.


I know prices for photography goes up all the time, but remember it's the memorys that last a life time, and it's worth it in the end to spend a little more money then you planned.

Try Jay Reilly, I am flying him into PV and he was willing to work with us on price. Plus, his work is stunning :)

Please let him know I sent you his way.


good luck!

So sorry for the delayed response. I went with J. Cogliandro "Joe". He is out of Houston and does amazing work. He also does 4 full days of coverage.


We are so excited to have him.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
