    I am really struggling on deciding on a photographer. A distant relative of mine just did a destination wedding for a friend of mine, and he said he would do 3 days worth of photography for $1500 and the cost of the trip. He said he would come along on cool runnings tour the day before the wedding and shoot, the day of the wedding all day, and the day after in the morning for a TTD shoot. I don't know if this is a good deal or not. It seems he lacks the creativity and I certainly lack creativity. I am a little concerned about his experience. I would really like to stay under $2000 for photography. Is this an unrealistic budget for photography. I would really like to hear what other people have paid in the past or if you all believe this is a good deal.

    Here is the website so everyone can see some of the pictures. BTW this wedding is Barcelo Maya Palace in Mexico.

      is a copy right free cd with all of the pictures included in that price?

      You can hire a local photographer, then you don't have to pay the travel fees.

      I have booked SunGold Photography. However their packages can get quite expensive.

      I am getting the intimate pkg. it is only for 2 hrs and it will cost me around $1800 usd. But I get a copy right free cd of all the pictures.

      I fell in love with them after viewing their website.

        He looks like a decent photographer and that is not an outrageous price depending on what products you will receive at the end. However, there are always photographers that are willing to cut deals to be able to do a destination wedding. Best of luck to you!

          1500 for three days worth is an incredible deal. But, only if you like what you would be getting. You could probably find a photographer for under two thousand that would do the wedding day and reception. But, probably not as much as this relative would be doing.

          Maybe ask him to see more photos? Even if they are not destination wedding photos, you still get an idea of his work.

            The quality of the pictures is very good and you can't beat the price for 3 days of photography. It just depends on what you are looking for. I am also going with Sungold, but one of their associates since Paula and Damian are already booked for my date (too bad). Their pics are great and the price is a little lower. You can have 10hrs split between 2 days for $2200 and you have all rights to the pics. They have packages that cost less money as well, but if you want multiple days that is the price you are looking at.

                Hello to everyone, 

                First of all I hope everyone is having a great day and is in good health. A lot of people take small things for granted especially with the stress of setting up for your big day.

                      I just got married at Riu Palace Tropical Bay. I contacted Richard Brown. It was so professional. Pics are amazing and price is really convenient. I highly recommend him.


                      For info go on his website or contact me....http://www.dreamwedd...hotography.com/ http://www.dreamwedd...photography.me/ http://www.dreamwedd...hotography.net/


                      I paid 1300 unlimited photo and he stayed for more than 5hours (he is flexible and decided to stay till the cake cut!)
