    So as all of you probably know by now I have a very small photography budget, so I've been trying really hard to find someone I can afford that still takes some nice shots. So I contacted Claudia Rodriguez and she wasn't available for my date but her team members were, I looked through her team members work and liked Citlalli Rico. Here is a link to her gallery, please tell me what you think honestly. And remember I am on a budget, so these won't be the same as some of the pics we've grown accustomed to!

      I really like her photos. I think she has a great style. Fun, yet elegant

      Were her rates affordable? and what resort are you getting married at?

      well the groom with the tongue in the ear was icky, and the one with the mom's in the ocean was super cute-but I really like the varieties of the pics. The one from way above the wedding location is amazing. I say go for it!!

      I think those look wonderful. I love all the interesting angles.... I think that ultimately, the photos need to reflect your style and personalities.

      I'm like you Jilly.... I'm a bride on a budget. I want nice photos but I don't think I want to spend 50% of my budget on them. or maybe I should. i don't know.... I haven't even looked yet to be honest :P

      But I looked at the (Citelli) site and I liked what I saw. I couldn't find where all the pricing was though. have you contacted them yet to find out what the packages are like?

      Oh and by the way i liked that dude' galley more than the others including Claudia. It seems he really catches the "moment".

          Yes, I thought the rates were very reasonable and the deposit was reasonable.

          Oh, yes, I'm getting married at Dreams Cancun

          If you want I can pm you the pricing

          Thank you! I just really want to have some nice pics, and I liked how they had packages that were just for a few hours. We are only having about 25 ppl, so to have someone for 6 hours, I think we would have an obscene amount of pics of all the same people and it would just be a waste. I think there packages give the perfect amount of time and pictures for what we are looking for.

          Its so hard to pick a photographer, I see everyones phenomenal pictures and I am so scared that I'm not going to like mine, but we're going to have a hard enough time paying for the rest of our wedding, so I have to keep the cost of the photographer down.

          I can pm you their package info if you want, let me know

            Thanks Ann! I think I'm going to book her and the deposit is small so that helps too!
