    HELP!! Any tips from people who've worked with these guys?
    I like to save money as much as the next girl... especially when the whole thing is coming out of my pocketbook, but the photogs have a point! Other than your memories this is what you will take away from your wedding!!! Nobody will notice if you chose a small rose bouqet over orchids, or chicken over the filet- the pictures are your present to yourself!
    I spent ALOT (IMO) on photography, and it is the thing that I am looking forward to most other than marrying my best friend. I know that she will capture all of the little details that I dreamed up but probably won't have time to appriciate:-)
    That said, if you are stressed about money overall, and saving money here would lower your stress level... well, that is a valid point too! I didn't help much, did I?!. Sorry!

        I was just going to say that the style you were talking about it called "photojournalism." Make sure you say this so you don't end up with something else.

        Good luck!

          I signed a contract with Dino Gomez.....A piece of advice girls, I was about to sign a contract with another guy, when I sent him an email asking to be sure to include certain details in the contract...one of those being that he personally was going to potograph my wedding as we had discussed...Thank goodness I did that because he then called me and said he didn't realize it before but he actually had another wedding that day but that he would send me his assistant!! Well she may have been good but i did my research on her as I did with every other vendor and could not find ONE THING to her credit. When I asked him why he said it was because all her work was under his name....sounded fishy so I went with Dino Gomez who's pics are really nice as well....

            Way to go! Aren't you glad you did your homework?!.
            I am very excited for you! I know how I felt when I booked my photographer- very excited and relieved too.
            Congrats!!!!

                All of this info helps so much.  So far in my planning picking a photographer has become the hardest task.  I don't know what I would do without the help from you guys on this site!!

                  I think I am going to go with the resort photographer as our resort charges $300 vendors fee for outside vendors .. boooo, !!! But  I have already convinced my fiance that I want Cinematic Touch ( Angel Zapien) to do our videography  , so we have to pay the fee for him to come to the resort. I may be pushing my luck to get a photographer too.   I am happy with the pics of the resort photographer though. Good luck to you all, post pics if anyone has any of the CAbo photographers!!
