    Here's a shot of La Isla at lunch. This was our last day at EDR, and my friend Rachel had just gotten engaged the night before! She was a little excited about the ring. She's actually on the forum (rachel), she just hasn't had time do anything but the Newbie post. She's getting married in Hawaii. (Aren't you glad you know all that now!)

      Hi Shannon,
      I have a question about Cancun Studios. I have hired them for my wedding and I am trying to come up with a timeline, would you mind posting your timeline? Also, did you have 2 photographers or one? I am having trouble figuring out how to get getting ready shots of both the groom and the bride.

      Thank you,
      Jennifer

          Hey! Augustyn (I know I spelled that wrong) was our photographer and he was so great! He had a very good way of making everyone feel at ease and directing in the pictures, etc. I sent them a list of poses that I wanted to make sure was included in the shots- and he got every single one, plus added some extra touches to some of them-- I have nothing but praise for them! I forget the name of the package we had- but it was the 5 hour package (and then we ended up adding another thirty minutes that was an additional $75 I think).... The photographer was actually a little early, so it just made it a really easy transition. He checked in at the lobby and Vince's brother met him at the lobby and brought him to Vince's dad's room first.

          He took the shots really quickly, but I never felt rushed at all-- as you can see from our link, I think we def got a ton of pictures-- he was very "efficient" with the timeline.

          3:00 - shots of groom and family in dad's room -getting ready
          3:30 -shots of bride and family in our room- getting ready
          * we stayed in casita 2912 and it was literally about 100 yards to our ceremony site (which wasn't planned) -but it made it easier for the photographer and for us with the timeline
          4PM- ceremony
          4:30-5PM- shots of family and friends groupings on the beach, and shots of bride and groom "romantics"
          **our private cocktail party was at the sky palapa, which was maybe 30 yards from ceremony site- so our guests went to sky palapa and started on apps and drinks about 4:45 and could actually see us on the beach taking our romantics
          5-5:45PM- private cocktail party at Sky Palapa
          *the photographer rode the shuttle with us from the cocktail party to the dinner (which was on other side of resort), and we stopped several times to take pictures through the resort...
          6-7:45PM- dinner at Fuentes.
          *we met with the head waiter when we got to Fuentes and was really clear that we needed to be done with dinner by 7:45PM due to the photographer's timeline- and they got us out at 7:45 on the dot!
          8PM-8:30- reception at Tucanes
          *Tucanes was pretty close to Fuentes so we all walked and that was kinda nice--- the photographer, once again, was able to get shots of us through the resort, walking to Tucanes.
          **we did our cake cutting and toast right away-- then did the first dances and the garter so he could get all of those shots in..
          We had Tucanes reserved until 11PM- but he left at 8:30- which was fine..

          There are so many talented photographers in Mexico- but Cancun Studios fit our budget and I definitely felt as if we got above what we paid for! :)

            I struggled with this too because I only have one photographer. I decided my FI just has to get ready about 3 hours before I do and get his pictures taken with the GMs. I told him he can change out of his suit and back into it right before the wedding. He wasn't thrilled with the idea, but finally conceded. Good boy.

              Heck yes we are! And it was the only way my boss would let me off this soon after my wedding! Rachel and I work together, and her boss let her off, so he couldn't be left out as the bad guy!
