How did you book your photographer/videographer?
Posted 01 July 2008 - 07:50 PM
We considered bringing someone from our home state (TX), and although he was much less expensive he is also a lot less experienced with destination weddings.
I would like to add that it is possible to make a connection with your photographer via the internet! Heck, just look around this forum. Several of us have formed very close friendships with others on the boards and if we're lucky we get to meet some of them! I "speak" with my photographer at least once a week (probably bug her a lot - sorry Elizabeth! ). I have complete confidence in her ability to shoot well in a location that she's never been to before. Again, we researched our choices a lot before making this decision because meeting up at the ceremony site was just not an option for us. That said, I'm sure we will share many conversations between now and our wedding regarding photo ideas, etc.
I think the best piece of advice I can give you is to go with someone who is experienced with DWs or weddings in general, and stalk their blogs/websites for awhile (hahaha!) to see if they are consistently producing good results.
Hope that helps! Good luck!!!

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

I am probably going to just use the resorts videographer. I haven't really looked into that.

Hee hee... I was going to use her up here (in Seattle pre-DW days) and she was so quick to respond to me and so willing to chat about doing a DW... so far, I have nothing but good things to say about her.
Now...just need to get the date actually booked at the resort... then officially book Kaylee and we are good to go!
