Just wanted to share my excitement about finally getting a contract and bank transfer forms from Paulina!! I'm taking a quick look at the contract details to make sure everything is accurate and will send her the deposit this week, which officially books her for my date!! Yay!!!

 

For those who have been having difficulty getting a hold of her, she generally takes an average of 4 or 5 days to get back to you, especially if you are sending an email in English, as she only speaks Spanish and has an interpreter to translate everything, including email. If you can write in Spanish or know someone who can, you'll probably get a faster response time. My fiance has been communicating with her in Spanish and we've been having better luck getting responses from her in a more timely manner. Even then, she may take a couple of days because of how busy she is but it'll better your chances. Don't be afraid to send her a friendly follow up email for questions that you haven't received responses for but I would give her a week before each follow-up.

 

I was feeling really anxious about getting her to respond to my email messages before but with some of the input that I've been receiving about what to expect with communication (thanks, Jill!), my worries have been put to rest.

 

....ahhh...photographer checked off the list! Feels great!

Yeah! Yeah! bunny_4.gif
I was thinking of contacting her again, but I don't necessarily have a reason to. I have the contract, but does it feel weird to anyone else to pay someone that lives so far away and have your wedding so far off?....
I keep going on her website and looking at her portfolio. I love it!
Congrats again!

Haha...I know what you mean. I feel like whenever I book a vendor, I have to be in contact with them at least once a month to make sure they haven't forgotten me...haha...probably would be overkill if I did. I look at her website OFTEN too (practically everyday) so I can imagine how great our pics will turn out! Every once in a while, I'll find a couple of new pics intertwined in the existing gallery and also in the intro slide show...gets me even more excited about my choice!

It doesn't feel too weird that I'm paying for things early but sometimes it makes me nervous to pay people that I've never met in person. I'm just glad this forum is here to make me feel secure about the vendors that I hire.

Aww...I'm sorry. I thought i saw some other photographers listed in this forum that are pretty good, although they have a different style. Let me see if I can find a few of them for you. Do you have any others in mind?

Yeah, I did think her prices were reasonable- especially for the quality of her work! she just emailed me a week or two ago just to check in with me. She told me to email her if there were any specific types of photos I like, it was good to hear from her.

Her prices are definitely reasonable considering how beautiful her work is. I've seen some that were less expensive but in those cases, you get what you pay for.

 

I hope she doesn't already have your date booked! I've been excited about having her photograph my wedding from the moment I received the signed contract!

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
