    Hi Ladies,

    Just wondered if you could offer any advice or had any experience with upgrading your photography package with the photographer that Dreams provides ? I have opted for the Ultimate package and have decided to go with the photographer that Dreams provides and take the 50 photos that are included with the package although I have been thinking about upgrading this to get more photos and possibley have him stay longer, did anyone else do this and did you think it was worth the extra money ? I've finally been able to get onto his website but still not see the gallery, what I have seen I thought was impressive....

      i'd be interested in the answer to this also. not only for extra time/photos, but i'm interested in getting all the high-res images on cd if possible (willing to pay). hope someone has some info to share!

          Ok this is what I know so far (I've been trying to get the info out of the photographer for months to no avail)

          You only get the 50 in the package but he is there for 90 mins and takes between 300 and 400 photographs.

          If you want to upgrade to the 100 pic package you can't just pay the diff! you have to pay the full whack for the 100 pic package. Now to me that is a lot of cash (about $1000) for an extra 50 pics and it may be worth spending that cash getting extra prints from what he has already taken.

          I'm trying to find out if he does TTD and if so how much? and if we can add extra hours on and pics with him direct for how much?

          When I find out I'll let you know but so far he isn't answering lol

            wow, you'd think he's be interested in making some more money and willing to give you the info! This type of sh*t is so frustrating!

                    Wonder if you can make an arrangement on the day of the wedding with him? Paying him a little extra cash directly may get you addl time / pics. I agree that $1000 for an extra 50 pics is ridiculous.

                    In addition, I wonder if the CD you get has any type of watermark over the pictures so you can't get them printed yourself. Are there any brides that used the resort photographer and could answer these questions?

                      I'm sick of emailing him and even sent a PM from here no response!! So much so i'm trying to arrange a TTD with someone else now - he better get his finger out when it comes to the actual photos
