    I really like this idea! I have been stressing about weight and transporting everything to Mexico, so for our guest book, we decided to purchased a colored photo coffee table book of Riviera Maya. We'll have each guest sign their favorite picture, and we'll be able to have the book out all of the time-- so it's not a "traditional" guest book.

    gom4good, I am bringing in my photographer from the states. The reviews are great. I would definitely take a look at his website and the reviews on here: Chris Schmitt

    HELP! Im getting married in June and have just decided that I do want a photographer!! I was going to get one of our guests to do it, he is really  fab with a camera............but not professional so i have thought it through and i defo want one!! I know i have left it really late so if anyone has any recommendations/prices etc i would be sooo greatful if you could share them with me!

     




    I'm getting married at 4:30pm on October 22nd. 

    Our timeline is ...

    3:30pm "First Look" - pre ceremony pictures

    4:30pm Ceremony

    5:00pm Cocktail toast on the sky deck, maybe some group pictures up there

    5:30pm - 6:30pm Cocktail hour (food and drinks) at Plaza Zavas (we'll still be taking some pictures)

    6:30pm - 10:30pm Reception at Plaza Zavas

     

    We have our photographer scheduled for 7 hours, 3pm - 10pm

     

    Hope that helps!

          Oh...and about the first look...I don't think my fiance is crazy about the idea either .. but it's either that, or stay away from our guests for longer and I don't want to do that. I played up that fact that we'll have a "special moment" before all the craziness for just us. I wish I had more advice!!

            Has anyone used the resort-approved photographers?  We're just interested in some basic, professional photos-  nothing too extensive or artsy, just enough to document the event.  I don't want to go to the trouble or expense of bringing our own and paying the outside vendor fees.  I'm thinking of getting one of the resort-approved photographers, but only have the packages/pricing to go on.  Has anyone had a good or bad experience with them?  Anyone heard anything one way or the other?

             

            Based on the Lomas website, because we're at Azul Beach, I think the approved photographers are: Caribe, Royale, Photo Booth, Magic Vision.

             

            Thanks!

              I see, I see!  We are going to have the ceremony on the beach, so I am concerned with them tearing down the ceremony site and having the cocktail reception overlooking (they suggested I have the cocktails on the beach)......so I am thinking maybe having it elsewhere...not sure where though.

              Because we are going in October....are you concerned with the temperature at night?  I am nervous that our guests are going to be cold.



              Happy to help!

              We're doing cocktails at Zavas b/c we can't stay up on the sky deck for too long. It was our only option really :/ and I want to stretch the day out as long as possible....it's going to be over so fast! We'll need to get a drink or something when we're both there!

              And totally feel free to check ours out on the 22nd!

              We did the ceremony on the beach and cocktails directly after. They did not tear down the site at all while we were there....with the exception of taking the flowers (as per my direction) to be used at the reception site. The white shears and all the chairs were left there until well after we all left. So don't be worried about that. They set up some cocktail tables (tall round ones) just to the right of the ceremony site (about 15 meters down the beach) right in front of the beach bar! Our guests loved this, since we did some photos along the beach, and they got to relax with drinks and watch a little.

               

              As for temperature, even in October it should still be high teens-low 20C in the evening. Guys will be fine with a shirt, and the ladies will be fine with a light cardigan or shawl. But once you start dancing you'll all be sweating anyway! LOL

               

              There is a picture of the set up in my review under the Azul Sensatori, if you want to see.

                  I don't think I will ever get out of Lurker status! I am still on page 1018 for reading and I seem to get all my questions answered and great ideas from reading so I don't need to post!

                  Just wanted to thank all of you for all of the great information and ideas you have. This forum has been a life saver for a detail - planner like me :)
