how does the legal paper work work? do we get all we need to make it valid in the states? do we get the marriage certificate?
how is the DJ? one sheets says you pay for 4 hours, but the dinner is only 2 hours?
anyone work with calyspo photography?? what package did you get? can you negotiate?--i don't need an album, but want them for 2 hours?! can you book them at your meeting or does it need to be down in advance?
jrb, we used calypso this month, we chose package 4 for 1200$US, for that we got 4 hours of their time, getting ready pictures, ceremony, reception, then she went away and came back for the dinner. With that you get a slideshow with 120pics on and an album of 50 pics.
I think package3 was for 2 or 3 hours, cost about 800$US, the cheaper options ie 1 and 2 don´t come with an album, just a cd, so i reckon you can mix and match. It´s true they will bend a bit on price....... we got all 350negatives for an extra 200$, they also did a film, even though we said we prob wouldn´t want it, he wanted 450 for it but we knocked him down to 300for cash.
When you have your meeting at the Palace Mexcio the WC will ask if you want the photography service, and after she's finished with you she calls over the photo lady to have a look at prices, confirm your room number and what time etc. If there are specific pics you want don't be afraid to ask, and make sure your room is tidy! in my photos you can see the debris of our holiday in some of the pictures! I'd emailed Calypso about a month before we left, but i hadn't needed to, the WCwill have it under control!
Should also say that i took 23 purple chair sashes and she put them on the chairs for free, no questions asked....... we also gave her the cake topper and that was sorted out great, and we had a cd with our music on which they used and returned the following day.
