    Hi.
    Has anyone used Manuel Burgoin? Or have wedding pictures from him if you've already gotten married?
    When I go in Aug. to have FI visit site, I would like to meet with him....I checked out his website and he is a bit expensive but his pictures are beautiful.
    Thanks.
    Andrea

      My WC suggested using him as well. I'd love to hear any first hand experiences also!

        I just returned and swear am going to post my pics this evening or tomorrow. We hired Manuel but for some reason ended up getting the other photographer he works with...Daniel something. If you look on their site weddingsinloscabos.com there is a link to his work. It is pretty much the same style and we felt he did a great job. He also charges a bit less but still expensive. Look out for my review which will get you some of his pics

          Great--thanks Jen! Looking forward to seeing them! Also, how many hours did you use them? I know they have a 4 hour min., but didn't know if that was enough time or not. Andrea, how many hours are you thinking you'll book him for?

            Andrea and Melissa-
            We only used him for 2 hours and it was $700 plus a wire transfer fee of $60. However, we also had Aaron's cousin who is a professional wedding photographer take quite a few more pictures before and after, especially of Aaron's family and of the reception/dance. Truthfully if you don't have someone else really good with you, I think you will need the 4 hours. And the larger your wedding party, the more time you will need. The photographer will probably spend 2 hours on just you and your husband alone.

              Oops, and by the way I posted some pics in a gallery and am getting access to our album through his website tomorrow.

                Thanks Jen and Tammy
                I'm not sure how long i'll have him at my wedding...I know on his website he offers different packages with different hours... Also I want to use him with video since he also does that sort of thing.
                Jen going to search for your review and pics...
                Thanks for your help

                  He did some engagement shots for us while we were on our site visit in May. Nice guy, speaks great english - we book Juan for our wedding but would have choosen Manuel if Juan was already booked.

                    Thanks for all the great info! Jen, can't wait to see your pics! I looked at the ones in your gallery and it looks like you had a beautiful wedding! Sarah - did Manuel take the picture of you and your FI on the beach? Thanks again!
