Should I ask my BM's husband to shoot our wedding?

Recommended Posts

I need some opinions ladies.....


I have asked one of my long time friends to be one of my bridesmaids eventhough we have grown apart over the past couple years. She hasn't yet given me an answer as to whether or not they can go on our wedding cruise to Jamaica, but will by August 15th.


Here is the dilemma...

Her husband is a professional wedding photographer, but only for the DC/VA/MD area (no DWs). We have a small budget for our wedding, but photography is important to me. Our budget will not allow for us to fly in a photographer. Also, I have not come across any great photographers located in Jamaica, and the one that I may end up using is mediocre and costs $900 for 3 hours and a cd. I was thinking of asking my BM's husband if he would shoot our wedding and we would pay whatever he would normally charge or even for his cruise depending on how he wants to work it out. Do you think it is okay to ask him? If so, should I wait until they tell me if they are going to ask or do I ask now so they can figure that into their decision? I guess I just don't really know how to ask without making him feel obligated or like this is the only reason I want them to go. What would you do? Thanks!

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
