      To those of you who brought in an offsite photographer/videographer, etc... did you have to pay for a day pass? I have been hearing conflicting things. Thanks!

        No because because we are bringing 2 photographers but they are staying in the resort and we chose one of the videographers that were recommended from the WC so there is no charge for them either.

          We paid for our photographer to stay at the resort, so we did not pay a fee.

            What videographer did the WC recommend? Was it Conrado? I have emailed him a couple of times and he hasn't replied and his website never seems to be working.

              Here are the websites of who can do video without a day pass charge:
              CONRADO PHOTOGRAPHER
              Claudia Rodriguez, Photographer, Cancun & Riviera Maya
              www.mexicanweddingphotos.com

              I could not get in touch with Conrado either. We hired Cancun Wedding Video which is the link from claudiaphoto.com.

                congrats! happy to hear it went well and the backup plan worked when the weather didn't. can't wait for a full review and see your pics.

                for those who have been there before, did you guys book excursions online or did you book it when you got there at the resort? is it cheaper to book online? we just want to do xcaret and golf.

                  For a photographer, we had Citlalli of Claudia Rodriguez. We loved our pictures and it was very very reasonably priced - we went with Wedding Photo Package II (and keep in mind that these are their prices for Jan 2008 so they have probably gone up):

                  Quote:

                  6 enlargements 5x7
                  1 enlargements 8x10"
                  Ceremony, toast and cutting of the cake (right after the ceremony)
                  group picture and Bride and Groom portrait by the ocean. time aprox 2 hours.
                  cost 800.00 us


                  Wedding Photo Package II

                  party and family. Time aprox 3hours
                  cost 1,000.00 us


                  Special package III
                  180 pics 4x6 (including 60 b&w)
                  15 pics 5x7
                  6 pics 8&10 (3 color and 3 b&w)
                  this is the most complete Photo Package because you will get a
                  lot of candid shoots photojournalism kind besides the Pictures of Bride and
                  groom, Wedding Party, Ceremony , family and reception. time aprox 4to 5 hours
                  cost 1,650.00 us

                  All photo packages include album and Cd's with the photos taken, and as you
                  can see some pictures in black and white as well.
                  What I really liked was that we got two CD's with all of our pictures on it (so whenever we want to print more, we can)!
