Awe shucks! :) Thanks!

Really... I just loved reliving my wedding day through all of you guys! I loved every minute of it and would do it again in a heart beat, so I like helping others get to that point too! :)

Of course!

This is by memory only so please do not quote me. We did not receive a price list that we could take away. There were two main packages that he offered us. The first one had printed photos of various sizes (odd ones like 6x8 instead of 5x7 or some other size that was close to 8x10), album, CD and DVD set to music etc. And the second one had less #of printed photos and I think you had to choose between the CD and DVD and you didn't get an album. He based the price for each package on the number of photos he presented to you. He told us that each image was $15 each. We were not bound to the packages and could choose whatever we would like. Just ask.

We had not originally intended to have a professional photographer. We instead supplied each of our guests with SD cards and offered a "Paparazzi for a Day" Photo Contest. When they returned home they forwarded to us their wedding day photos on a disc we provided for judging. Prizes will be awarded to the winners at a party hosted in our honour at the end of this month. There was some very good photos taken by our non-pr guests!! We were very pleased!

However, our wedding package included 10 free photos and Jose was assigned to take pictures of our ceremony. We were very pleased with the shots he took and ended up purchasing them on a CD so that when we got home we could do whatever we want with them. The CD was packaged in a nice case with our photo on front with our names and wedding date. The CD itself had a photo of us on it as well. We have played the CD over and over, copied it to our hard drives and want to produce a movie with the music from our ceremony. It will be a fun project for us to work on together.

This was our experience with the "10 free photos" in your wedding package. Once seeing the photos he took, we wanted them all. We spent more than we had ever intended but we were more than pleased to have professional photos in the mix of the non-pro ones. How could we not? wink.gif

I cannot speak to how it all works when you hire Jose for the day to photograph every aspect of your wedding. I'm sure he would be pleased to explain how that all works if you email him directly.

Hope this helps!

Sunnyee

Hi ladies,

To those of you who have already had your wedding- If you did a symbolic was it ovious to the guests that it wasnt legal?? do you think the resort would make it seem legal for us- we are thinking about doing the paper work at home before we leave, but I really dont want to take away from the moment either.

Also was wondering if they still do the Mexican Fiesta on Thursday nights?

Thanks so much =)

We did a Symbolic Ceremony and made Karla (our WC) aware that we needed for everyone, including our witnesses, to think that this was the real deal. I can assure you that NO ONE questioned anything and it was done according to legal ceremony protocol...our witnesses signed the "certificate". To us our wedding day was the date of the ceremony in Mexico. We did the "paper work" back in Canada after the wedding. So much easier!

Yes, the Mexican Fiesta is still on Thursday nights. Since we were married on a Thursday, we opted to treat our guests to the Mexican Fiesta in lieu of a reception. Worked out well, except it was a bit cool that night. They even arranged to have reserved seating for our group in the first two rows!
