    Just wanted to make a recommendation to all Mexico Brides... I have just returned from our wedding at the Moon Palace. Although we had not budgeted for it after reading up on the internet we hired an external photographer to do our photos. I admit we were a little sceptical but I have just seen the photos and I love them so much. It was important to us to get good pics as many friends and family were not able to join us on our wedding day. We hired Vincent Guihard from Del Sol Photography. He was amazing. I usually hate having my photo taken but he made me feel so relaxed. The photos are like nothing I have ever seen before ....No one back here can believe they are sooo amazing. It was an amazing experience and we had such a lot of fun. It seems several of the hotels have a no external vendors policy including The Moon Palace as they want to monopolise everything, and I would have hated to have had the bog standard, one pose fits all photos taken by them, especially now we know what we would have missed. I can not recommend Del Sol Photography enough. If you want any details let me know. Vincent is the associate, and Matt and Sol are the main photographers. They edit everything. Their communication was fantastic. All I can say is hire them, you will not regret it....Their website is del Sol Photography
    Any questions or if you would like to see some photos let me know

      How did you get away with using them as they have a no outside vendor policy?

        What were the rates like? Did you just have them come for the ceremony or reception too? I am so glad everything turned out so well for you! Makes it all seem worth it, huh? Congrats!

            Your pictures are beautiful! We have seen Vincent's and of course Del Sol's Photography's work here a couple of times and I agree that they are THE BEST photographers in this part of the world! I wished we had booked Vincent for our wedding. Congratulations!

            And I have to add that you looked very beautiful on your wedding day. I love your hair!

            Best to you!

                  Emily, I spent several days working on your photos... You have a beautiful family and your daughter is absolutely beautiful. She is a blessing!

                  We thank you for the referral and kind words here.

                  As you know and for others to know, del Sol is no longer taking reservations in any hotel that does not allow outside photographers. This is only our 2nd wedding at moon palace in 5 years and it will be our last unless they change their photography / outside vendor policy.

                  We work in the world of wedding planning 2.0 (a play on words of web 2.0) where brides actually do all their planning and research online, as Emily did. She hired us from thousands and thousands of miles away and from the UK I might add, and trusted our vision.

                  We want these hotels to trust our vision that we can get their word out to brides thousands and thousands of miles away by showcasing their venue in slideshows and in other outlets where these brides will recommend their services. They do this by showcasing their photography and then their thoughts on their experience.

                  Resorts need to see how they can grow from a mutually beneficial relationship that we are trying to establish with our marketing practices. Allowing us on their property will not only provide free marketing their weddings through brides who post on forums like this one, bur also potentially direct 1,000,000 + page views per month to them from sites like BDWF. Lets face it, Bridal planning for destination weddings is an online business.

                  This is not rocket science here... There are only a small handful of other resorts that have the same policys... or...resorts that charge a fee plus 3 nights to stay at their hotel.

                  Regrettably, Emily will be the last bride that del Sol will photograph in Moon Palace resorts unless they change their policy. We are sad by this but it is a decision that we made on the behalf of our clients. If anybody from moon palace is reading this, please contact us and lets negotiate on how we can make the world a better place for everybody. We are happy to provide your hotels with tip top notch professional marketing by slideshows displayed from weddings occurring at your resort.

                  How did we shoot on their property... sneaking in. We don't want to play like that anymore though... we hope all brides can understand.


                  Emily, thanks again for trusting our vision. We absolutely love your photographs and thank you again!

                  Cheers,
                  Mateo
