    After emailing nearly every photographer in the Yucatan, I finally decided on who to use. We are going with Vanessa Vargas. She gave us a price quite for photos and video that was more than reasonable, and I absolutely love her work. Probably because her style is so similar to my own.

    Things that influenced our decision:::
    1. Style. I cant stand the stiff, traditional stlye. Hers is more of a photojournalism style and that she does not use flash very much. A lot of times a slightly blurry photo without flash adds a dimension to it that I love rather than a crisp photo with flash. Thats just personal preference though.

    2. Price. We have champagne tastes, with a budweiser budget. Vanessa put together a custom package to suit our needs and budget

    3. Equipment. I had one photographer reply to my questions about what equipment he uses with a photo and a lengthy proud description of his point and shoot camera. No thank you. I have a big expensive camera, and I expect the same from my photographer or better.

    4. It will be her taking the photos instead of an assistant. Some responses said they were booked for our date, but they could have one of their helpers do it. No thank you, and definitely not for the same price.

    Some of her recent weddings are here.......... Redirect Page

    I took Jill's advice to someone else to ask to see complete wedding galleries from recent shoots. That is what sealed the deal with me.

          Good find, Jason - I can't wait to see the pictures! You'll have to let Vanessa know she'll probably get more business from this site too!

                Has anyone already used Vanessa Vargas for their wedding? How was she?
