    I used Martha Roque Photographer Martha Roque Cancun M©xico. Her prices are very reasonable. I definitely say do a TTD. You will be glad you did. It was so much fun!!!!! Those are some of our best pictures and the water in Cancun is gorgeous.

      Harty...I contacted several photogs in Cancun for a TTD and two that I can think of were super affordiable.

      We are going with Martha Roque...her sunrise TTD photos are amazing (so are her mid-day ones)...if you want the names of the companies and the prices I was quoted, PM me your email address.

      We're also using the resort photog, so the prices I got were JUST for a TTD

        The TTD rates will probably vary considerably depending on the photographer. Make sure to find someone who you like and really love their work, but also a photog who is into TTD sessions.

        I would definitely do it if you can. Especially if you don't really like getting your photos taken normally. There's something about getting a newly married couple in a beautiful location that really brings out the best in the couple (I'm a pro photog). The love is just flowing :)

        You'll have a blast and they will probably be some of your favorite photos! It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

            Some resort photographers can be pretty good for that type of thing - we got some beach shots of us at a resort the day we got engaged (before I'd ever heard of TTD or anything) and I love them and they are pretty steamy, totally could have been TTD if we had been wearing our wedding clothes and not our bathing suits. Anyways, I thought that resort photographer was really good (I was at the Punta Cana Princess in case anyone is wondering). I paid 10$ per print that I bought (I only bought 5). The CD was more expensive. They changed like 200$ for an actual longer photo session (this was only like a 10 minute session because I told him I only planned on buying like 2-3 pics)

            I think you should plan on the resort photographer charging like 200-400$, hopefully at the lower end of the scale (many of them only charge like 500$ for wedding pictures and TTD takes less long).

            Of course if you don't want to take a risk with quality and price it would be better to get in touch with somebody externally who actually answers your emails! But if all their prices are too high (I expect that most would be higher than the resort photogrpaher) than you can just take a chance and wait and see for the resort photographer and as a back-up, get a friend to do it. Just show that friend lots of great ideas from pictures on here. I think with TTD it's slightly less important to have an awesome photographer and amazing quality prints since you are less likely to blow up the photo and hang it in your living room and all the other stuff that you do with wedding photos. (Don't get me wrong, I think it's worth splurging on TTD photos, but I'm just saying if I had to cut back on either the wedding photos or the TTD photos I would cut back my budget for TTD because you'll get lots more use out of your wedding photos).

              it's a great way to make memories and get a chance to play in your dress! I'm sure you can find a reasonable rate as TTD sessions are still fairly new and a ot of photographers are wanting to do them for portfolio reasons. I would look up photographers in the area and get a bunch of quotes I bet theres a pretty big difference in price depending on who you ask!
