      That sucks about your photographer... BUT I might be able to help. I don't know if you like either of these two photographers, Vanessa Vargas customized a great package for me for 2000.00 her website is Vanessa Vargas Photography Also Leticia on here had a photographer named Misti. I emailed her and she has an AMAZING destination wedding deal. She will give you eight hours of coverage and a fifty page photo book and something else I can't remember. All you have to do is pay 250 dollars to reserve her then pay for her airfare and three nights at a hotel. Which is a lot cheaper than even Vanessa's offer. Unfortunately she is unavailable for my wedding but she is trying to find someone else that she thinks is just as good.. her website is Expressions By Misti - Professional Photography - Nashville, TN and Leticias post with her photos are here http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t23021 hope this helps!

          Hi!

          When are you getting married exactly? Our photographer is from Ontario, Canada and she is wonderful. Her fees are $1500 and then travel expenses to get her there. If you like her and are interested in this then perhaps we can split her travel fees and that way ALL be happy! I felt the same way about a photographer as the pictures are sooo important to me and I too felt a bit hopeless about finding someone 'good enough' but not super expensive!

          We're going to be in the Mayan the week of March 28-April 4th 2009. Let me know if this works for you! If you're interested in maybe using her and want to split the fees with another bride if our week/location don't happen to be the same as ours! And she does destination weddings ALL THE TIME so is experienced and knows all the 'hot spots' for pictures too.... and she does 'trash the dress' photo sessions as well.

          Let me know!

            Definitely don't give in. This is far too important and you don't want to regret 'giving in' to the resort photographer if you don't love them. You will find someone!! If this ends up being your one splurge for your wedding then so be it! Plus, i always like to rationalize hehe... think of the money you're saving by not having a typical wedding 'back home' ...you're saving so much by having a destination wedding to begin with!!!!

              Thanks for that but we don't get there until 11th May so we are going to miss you - arggg lol Thanks for the offer tho that would have been great if we could have worked it out. Yeah I know what you mean about the photographer - I don't think he's just a resort photographer I think he's the real deal but has a deal going with them lol

              Been going through so many people's work i'm starting to get photos on the brain lol trouble is this is busting our budget as it is so something is gonna have to give lol FI has decided he really wants Juan Navarro which is fine I'm not a pic girl anyway so think i've just got to suck it up lol FI already said he is gonna say to him NO PHOTOSHOP lol

              He is a member on here and I PMd him ages ago but he's not replied yet!!
