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!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
    • Wow.... it looks like I need to add some things to my bags ..#goals Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
