Claudia Rodriquez vs. Vanessa Vargas
Posted 20 August 2008 - 11:37 AM
I was wondering if anyone has any pics of their wedding from either of these photographers. I like both, however, I'm leaning more towards Claudia as her work is just beautiful. The only thing is that she is a lot more expensive than Vanessa. I don't know if I should save money and go w/ Vanessa or just bite the bullet and pay extra for Claudia (who's work I do like more).
Any help or recommendations would really help me out. I did not think that picking a photographer would be this stressful! It's all I could think about!! grrr!
So any pics advice would really help me out. Thanks!

Also, how long did you guys have Claudia for? Do you think 3 hours is enough for ceremony/cocktail hour/and dinner? We are having our reception at Playasia restaurant so not the basic reception. More of a sit down dinner. let me know your thoughts!

I hear you on the having these pics for the rest of your life. Have you looked at Vanessa Vargas at all? Her pics aren't bad at all..actually pretty cool..just don't think they edit as well as Claudia does as far as shiny foreheads/lighting and that sort of stuff.
I really think I want to use either Citalli or Erik. Did you already book w/ them? if so who did you get to chose?
Also..saw that you are from Chicago. Did you know that Southwest will be taking over ATA's flights at the end of next year which includes Cancun? We are bummed about that as our wedding will be in May. I see yours will be in November so maybe you'll get lucky w/ that!

My sister is a professional photographer yet she has NO pictures of her wedding up in her house because she hates all of them. I thought that any picture could look great with editing - that it's the photoshopping that makes a picture amazing. But apparently that's not the case. My sis has amazing photoshopping skills but there's nothing she can do to make her pictures better.
I went back and forth on photography a couple times. The reason I thought I would go for a less expensive photographer is that if you think about it, 15 years from now, your pictures will look bad. We were going through my cousins pictures the other night and we were killing ourselves laughing. It was cutting edge photography at the time but now it's horrible! The Laura Ashley BM dresses and feathered hair didn't help either...lol.
In the end, we went with the photographer I love, Del Sol. Right now I'm wishing we hired no photographer - but that's only because we're reno'ing our TINY closet into a walk-in one and had to use the closet reno budget to pay for photography...lol. I'm sure once I see our beautiful pictures, I'll have NO regrets though!!!
