I really want one cause they look super fun but i want to have time to do all the dances and stuff. Also, last question, what time does jaguars open?

 

Hey Ashley :)

 

Mariachi usually come during cocktail/dinner which is really cool! I am almost positive Jaguars opens at 11:00pm. It could be 10:00 but not earlier than that. Sunset is at 7:05 that day so the reception at 7:00 would be great as we will have the beautiful light in the hour before to get great stuff of you guys on the beach. SO excited. :)

is it just me or does the new photo places packages kinda suck?  I was not planning on getting prints done in mexico i just wanted a cd and do them back home professionally, but it does not seem like you have alot of options!

Hey im just wondering if you girls got a deal on your wedding package through the hotel at all? Or if the travel agent gave you any kind of a break on booking a larger party through them??

 

thanks!

Hey Ladies! I'm also getting married at Barcelo (but at the Tropical) Feb 25th, 2011. I was nervous about booking an outside photographer because of their ever changing policies they seem to have but went for it anyway! Booked Ivan Luckie and have had great communication with his thus far.

Photocaribe was amateur at best. I've been following the unnofficialbarcelomaya website on this very topic and was curious about the new photog's portfolio as well...seems like "more of the same", all be it a bit better, but for their prices you could hire an outsider and do a TTD or engagement session for just a bit more! What does everyone else think of their portfolio thus far??

I agree they dont seem to much different to the old ones. I think i would have to see a few more before i'd make a decision. We like the fact you will have photos to take home with you not just the CD. Do all the outside photographers do a DVD for the same price range?

For us, we will just receive the DVD with all photos he took, which will be edited/enhanced etc..These will be full resolution jpeg images and we will need to print the ones we like on our own. He will also host our on his online web gallery with the top 80 pics. For 8 hrs it's $2000US, and we added an engagement session in Playa del Carmen for $550! I can't open you attachment for the pricing info for the new Barcelo photographers, but i remember reading that they were close to $1800 depending on the package etc you chose. Something to think about...hope this helps :)
