    @carrieandsam glad you liked Vanessa's passports (I think it was me who mentioned them or crysta did too ;) either way I'm happy Vanessa's passports meet your needs ;)
    I loved working with them,my guests loved my blue leathered passports and the antique passports ( I selected 2 designs and champagne or Pearlized paper )
    Best luck to you

    I bought the wedding template from vanessa and Dave and edit it myself with azul sensatori info and pics. vanessa and Dave were great to work with, very helpful, very fast (got the invites within a week) and price for printing was very reasonable and as very good quality.


    Ohhhh I must go back and look! They must have done one recently for Sensatori!!! Love it!

    My photographer is from home, found her and loved her work. She's not charging me anything, I'm just covering 4 nights as well as her airfare. I plan to give her something extra though. Sometimes it worth doing some research locally to your home, I was not happy with the resort photographers but the others I saw in Mexico and liked were very expensive and then have the additional resort fee.


    Please note- that your from home photographer should look into getting a work visa to shoot your wedding. Most get away with working in Mexico shooting weddings like this without a problem- but others have has issues and the LAST place I would want to break the law would be Mexico and I wouldn't be able to forgive myself if anything happened! I had originally planned to have a from home photographer shoot our wedding but ended up going with a local- this was one of the reasons. Too risky. (Room and board is considered payment so just because cash isn't being exchanged they would still legally require a work visa)

    I'm here now!!!! Wedding is tomorrow!!!

    Ladies!!!! It is beautiful and the staff are MORE than accomadating!!!!

    After your event, they gather your decorations and you pick them all back up at the end of your trip. I brought a TRILLION items and so far every instruction has been followed!!!

    For the future brides, you won't be disappointed!!!

     

    Congratulations and best wishes on your wedding day!
     

    @Chrysta thank you for the info on Vanessa and Dave. I am already conversing with them and they have won me over with the good price and quality. Thank you everyone else for the info very helpful.

    Now I do see some of the past and future brides going with photographers other than karisma vendors. Those of you bringing in your own photographer, is the vendor from your hometown or someone in the area close to Azul sensatori?

    We are using PhotoStudioAB because friends of ours recommended them, and because they are less expensive than Matias Cano, even with the $800 outside vendor fee!
    There are so many terrible reviews for Caribe that we were sure we didn't want to use them. If Matias Cano had been a bit more reasonably priced we probably would have gone with him.

    just to clarify they didn't make a wedding passport invite for sensatori. I bought the cancun template then customized it myself with sensatori info and pics
    I thought if we bring the photographers from home and pay the guest rooms for 3 nights we waive the $800 vendor fee. we still need some type of work permit still?

    The work permit has nothing to do with your resort- it has to do with a person working illegally in a foreign country (your photographer) without proper approval from the government to gainfully earn an income (room and board) in that country. To be honest I don't even know is you can attain a permit for this type of work since it's hard to argue that a local could not provide the same services. (Normally this is the determining factor in granting a work permit) Sure- they could tell the Mexican government that they are simply coming to Mexico on vacation to watch their friends get married... But if they are stopped and professional equipment or disks containing wedding pictures that are more than typical "vacation photos" are discovered it could land them in big trouble. The laws exist to protect local workers from foreigners stealing their opportunity to earn a living... Just as they do in the US and Canada (and likely every country) for those visiting the country planning to work under the table. I'm not saying people don't do this all the time- but I also have heard of locals tipping off when this is happening- since there are definitely disgruntled local photographers who know this is happening and want to put a stop to it....and I just couldn't stomach taking the risk without proper paperwork to allow my friend to work without fear of getting caught. Mexico is not somewhere I would want to do anything illegal!

      @kmk2016 they have the standard template and the resort template, at the moment the Sensatori template was not available and I recently did mine , I customized it with my own photos and wording about the hotel. The good thing about that is that you can add any photos you want and modify anything you want. I customized my own and sent it to Vanessa for printing and I just assembled the passport myself to save $1.4 per passport
      I paid for two designs (blue leatherette and antique), also paid for English and Spanish versions.

      @carrieandsam my huge advice to you is that you should go to Vanessa for printing the passports, Luggage tags, boarding pass. Don't go to the local printer shop if you want to avoid stress. Vanessa and Dave know their own product and they finish it beautifully.

      I will post pictures of my passports soon :)
