    Hi Dreams brides!  I have a question about photography.  We have the Dreams Ultimate package and it comes with the photographer from Vallarta Adventures and a 50 print book.  We think we would like to purchase the rights to all of the pictures after the wedding...like on a cd or something.  Has anyone done this?  How much did it cost?  Also, how long do you have the photographer for?  Are they  there the whole day getting ready through the reception?  Or do they come late/leave early?  Any info would be great!!

     

    Thanks!

      Hi Danasb788,

      We are also having the ultimate package and purchasing the remainder of the photos. I paid for mine in full a few months back to secure the price I was quoted (it was the 2010 price which they honoured), I think right now all of the pictures are around $1000 but not 100% sure, you can ask Fatima and she will send you the info. I spoke to Cristheell and she said that she will be there starting at the spa getting ready and all the way to the end. You can email Cristheell or Eder (both great photographers at Dreams) to discuss all the details. You'll be very happy with them I'm sure.

        Thank you!  I was given the name Lili as a contact....she is the Adventures Photos supervisor I guess?  I just emailed her to ask for pricing on a CD for all of the pictures...we will see how much it went up in the past 2 years lol.

          We were married January 2011 and bought a DVD with all the photos (edited & unedited) including the photos taken at our bonfire for $495 USD. We bought it the day we were leaving and it was ready within an hour or so.

            I think it should still be around the $1,000. I was quoted $595 and then they said it went up so I made them honour that price (which is why I had to pay in full already)

              I was just quoted $1499 USD for 2011 price.  They said they arent sure if the prices will be going up in 2012, so that they cannot lock in prices now.  That price was for every image taken on the CD.  Is that what you asked for too?  That price seems high to me!  Our wedding planned (using destinationweddings.com) said that prices with the photographers are usually negotiable.  Has anyone found that to be true?  She told me to offer about half of what they are asking for.............

                Any of you ladies getting married here in January 2012? I figured this would be a super popular month but it doesn't seem like it. Maybe it's just a Canadian bride thing as its so cold up here at that time.

                  They quoted me at $1500 and they said that was the 2011 price.  They said that they would not promise that price for 2012 and that it may go up as well.  My wedding coordinator (from destinationweddings.com) said that prices are negotiable and that we should offer only half of what they are asking for.  Has anyone had any experience like this with them?  I am just not sure what to do??

                    Hi,

                     

                    For those past brides, How long did it take to get your hair/makeup done at the salon? Just trying to figure out how much time to have for getting ready and when to start getting ready.

                     

                    Thanks

                      It took about 1h 30min for hair & makeup.
