      Monica,

      Your pics were absolutely gorgeous. You made a beautiful beach bride.

        Thank you :) She really was so great to work with. I'm pretty simple so I didn't need much but she was great at telling us poses and stuff which is good because we hate pics and needed that guidance. She was also willing to let us do things we wanted as well. She was very calm, sweet and fun.

        Her email is: cecidumas@hotmail.com
        Her website is: Wedding photography | Cecilia Dumas, Cancun y Riviera Maya | Imagenes de Bodas

        Also, try a search on thsi forum. I know of atleast one other person who has used her for his wedding. His username is Infinity22 I believe.
        HIGH FIVE, WE'RE MARRIED!!!

            Yeah, this happened last night.

            There are a few other resorts that have big threads too: Dreams Cancun has a few (although people are still always starting new threads about the resorts for specific questions), the Bahia has a thread almost as long as our old one (but it's in the "Riviera Mayan Accomodations sub-forum), Moon Palace, Paradisus, etc. I think it would be great if they were all put in the same place (I actually suggested this in the feedback forum), like either all stickies in this forum, or a sub-forum just for these resort threads (I guess the Riviera Maya Accomodations sub-forum) rather than having some at different spots and having them mixed in with other threads that aren't resort specific. It seems like these long resort threads are a fairly new phenomenon (like from the last 6 months or so) so maybe they will find some way to reorganize them all better.

            But for now, no more searching for our thread (although it was pretty much always on the front page anyways!)

              YAY - so cool that its a sticky!!! I can image it would get out of control if a lot of threads got to be stickies...how'd we get so lucky

              I just heard back from Landy on a couple of outstanding questions I had from my site visit. I'll post all that Q&A info this evening.

                Yeah, can't wait to get the details!!! I'd like to sit down and get a budget spreadsheet going. My FH keeps asking..."so how much is all this gunna cost, 10 k, 20 k"? I just don't know!!!

                  Can'twait, I agree it is so hard to figure out pricing and a budget when you really can't book anything until you're there.

                  Not sure if this has been covered but I have not been able to find it so far...if you use the resort photographer are they booked for a number of hours? I definitely want shots of the girls/guy/family getting ready but I'm not sure that the resort photog. does this?? Trying to decide if I need to book someone else or use the resort. If anyone has any input please let me know. Thanks girls!

                    Hopefully somebody who used the resort photog can provide a better answer, but based on looking at the photo albums of everyone who got the resort photographer, it appears he only starts shooting a little bit before the ceremony (a few photos in the rooms and outside) then the ceremony, and after the ceremony, but not the reception. In terms of getting ready pics, it probably depends a lot on who early you want him to arrive, if you only want him to come like half an hour before the ceremony, there likely isn't an extra charge (as it appears he normally does that anyways) but if you want him to come like 2 hours before, then I imagine you would have to pay extra.

                    Nobody has ever posted info on how much he charges for extra hours, so if anyone has this info it would be very helpful!

                    Why don't you try emailing him? The email address is on Page 1. When I emailed for samples they were really good at emailing me back, I'm sure they'll answer all your questions.

                      The resort photographers will basically do whatever you would like. When I met them during my site visit he says they are very flexible. What I forgot to ask was how much more. dumb, me !
                      But, he said there are 3 assigned photographers and one is always on the resort (sometimes 2 or all 3 are there). So for example, they will be taking my TTD pics a couple of days after our wedding. He told me I can set the time and day once I get there it wouldn't be a problem.
