    Hello ladies, I am currently on the hunt for a photographer. So far cecila dumas and vannessa vargas are in the running as far as my budget is concerned. If anyone has any advice or comments on these photographers, I would greatly appreciate it.
    thanks, selina

      Try doing a search. There are a lot of people that used Vanessa and Cecilia. I used Martha Roque Photographer Martha Roque Cancun M©xico and she was fabulous. I loved all of my pictures and she was super sweet. Check out her website.

        I emailed both of them. Cecilia took weeks to get back to me, then wasn't available anyway, and I wasn't completely taken by Vanessa's work. We just booked with cancun studios (CANCUN STUDIOS) They will do custom packages for you and they are right in the same price range as Cecilia and Vanessa. I LOVE their work and they were very quick at returning my email! Also with Vanessa you have to put 1/2 the package down for a deposit which can be pricy. With Cancun studios the deposit is $250.00 :) Hope this helps

          Welcome Selina!

          I hired Cecilia Dumas for my wedding 4 years ago. She was a nice person but certantly not a good photographer. I do not like to critizes people and specially photographers, but at that time I was not the photographer, I was the client. To give you two specific examples, she promessed more than what she actually did and delivered to us, and second, in many color pictures the colors were completely different, my suit was beige and in the pictures that she gave us, was blue.

          This was my personal experience with her.

                I don't know what all the hoopla with Cecilia Dumas is all about, I used her in May and she was fantastic!

                  I looked at Vanessa Vargas website and her work is good, but something about the sharpness of the photos. I feel like a lot of them look on the verge of blurry. Maybe this is just her style..
