PV photographer/rehearsal dinner..

Recommended Posts

Goodness...i am Newbie and I am having a hard time figuring out how to post my message. I might have already posted this.

 

I am planning on getting married in PV on June 28, 2008 on the beach...I am thinking about Dreams but I want to visit it before I decide for sure. I am going down to PV in two weeks so I hope you all can help me with some stuff before I go.

 

Would anyone recommend a photographer? My budget is aroun $1000 but somewhat flexible.

 

Would anyone recommend a fun place for a rehearsal dinner for aroun $40 or $50 pp with drinks...is that a reasonable budgethuh.gif

 

I hope to hear from you soon.

Welcome Amy!

 

We're getting married at dreams on July 4, 2008! Hmmm, I'm not having a WD, but instead will try to plan a group activity (most likely a day cruise).

 

A new photog from PV just joined the forum. You may want to contact him for prices but to be quite honest, all the photogs I've contacted start at $3000.

ALoha Amy,

PV was wonderful. My wife and I just got back a week ago after shooting a wedding. The wedding was at the big church in town and the reception was at Dreams. The parents of the bride and groom put us up for two nights at Dreams and it was great. Make sure you ask for rooms in the newer section of the resort. Big difference, we saw both while photographing the bride and the groom.

Rehearsal dinner. There are so many fun resteraunts in town. We had ours at a place called Tequila right on the boardwalk. I imagine it was around 30-50 each person. When you visit there are tons of great places to eat.

In talking to a local wedding planner it seemed that photographers are much more than $1000.00 I think $3000 to $5000 is more reasonable.

 

ANy more questions about PV or Dreams let me know.

Bob,

Do you mind posting some pics of that wedding. We are planning on having our wedding in a Church and are leaning towards that same one. It would be nice to see some pics.

 

Thanks

It seems that DW photographers are a bit more expensive but they do an awesome job. I thought spending 1 grand on photography was expensive but since I've done my research, I think it is impossible.

Welcome amy,

Yes Destination Wedding photographers are expensive but in my opinion well worth it. However, I am not a PV expert but do know that in the Riviera Maya/Cancun area there are photogs out there that you could get for close to a 1000.00 . Granted I dont think their work is nearly as good as the more photojournalistic style DW photogs but if you are really set on sticking to your budget than it may be possible. I would even contact Dreams PV and ask who they usually use for photogs... Do a little digging and you may find one in your budget. :)
