She can't do it at our resort either but we're doing our photos with her at Puerto Aventuras instead - we're going to have the resort photographer do our ceremony and family pics and then FI and I are going to do our own photos with someone from Claudia's team.

We're getting married at the Barcelo Maya...

It's really good too because we were going to go with the largest package the resort offers - and now we can go with the smallest plus Claudia's package and we end up saving ourselves something like $700 USD by going with Claudia instead of the resort for everything!

I am also using Claudia Rodriguez. She has great portfolios, very reasonable pricing, and is extremely flexible. I actually got a chance to meet with her on our scouting trip and she is an absolute sweetheart!! I loved her!!! She also only requires a very small deposit up front...which was huge for my fi and I because we are still in the process of saving up for the wedding. I would highly reccomend her.

Well my TA, Hayley from BeachBums, is going to talk to the EDR WC when she goes down for her trip in April and will see if they will allow outside photographers. If so, I will definitely try to schedule Claudia. I also sent an e-mail to Faith (the EDR WC) to tell her how many brides are not happy about EDR's new photographer policy and that it wouldn't be so bad if their photographer did a better job....hopefully a little squeaking will get them to look into their policy....

I'm thinking about using Claudia as well. My fiance and I are planning on getting married at the Grand Palladium in December. Does anyone know how booked up she is and if she reply's quickly?

What about pictures of getting ready/the reception? If you go with the resort's smallest package, are those included? I now at our resort, the smallest package includes ceremony and right after only.

I love Claudia's style, but I'm not sure our resort will allow her (I have to do some checking.) They will allow us to bring in an outside videographer though, so maybe...

I had emailed nearly every wedding photographer in the Cancun/RM area with requests for custom package prices because it is just going to be Karen and I.

 

The most reasonable offers for what I thought were quality photographers were....

 

Michael Maurus

Cancun Studios

Anthony Caronia

Claudia Rodriguez

 

We ended up going with Vanessa Vargas for a number of reasons including price, style, availability and communication. We ended up getting a package with Vanessa that is cheaper than using the resort photographer and videographer also. Thats the great thing about a photographer that will customize a package to get you exactly what you want and need. Never hesitate to ask if they are willing to modify their standard packages.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
