Ok, you get like an hour worth of photography with the package. I think you pay like 300 bucks for it? Maybe more? But I wanted more pictures so it was like 600 bucks more to have him for the reception and all that. So there is 900 towards photography. PLUS, I wanted a TTD session. That was another 600 dollars. There is 1500 dollars on photography on a photographer I didn't really even want.
What I did is credited the 300 bucks I had to pay for the photographer toward the sound system for the ceremony which I reccomend everyone to have. It is really loud with the waves crashing. I then hired Jeremy to come out. The trip wasn't that bad. I think I got him his flight and hotel for like 600-700 dollars. I then had him for my rehersal dinner, my entire wedding ceremony and reception and he did a TTD for me. He gave me a great price on his charge and in the long run I saved a bit of money and I had a photographer that was amazing and I had him for three days instead of an hour!! And he was great and became part of our group instantly.
If you budget for a photographer I really reccommend finding your own photographer. Just my opinion though.

Kat speaks the truth, since I love traveling for destination weddings so much I always discount my services at least as much as the travel costs. I'm sure you won't have a hard time finding a Stateside photographer that you like that would make a good deal to have the opportunity to go with you.

Sounds great but i'm not stateside so mine is horrific lol There is a guy that did my cousin's wedding and he wanted £2k for the pics then I had to pay for 2 of them to fly and stay that was at least another £2k that I didn't have. Think thats about $8000

Joanne, I was in the same boat with Claudia Rodriguez charging me $900 for a TDD Session so I am shopping around and there are some good photographers out there with more settle prices. Try Cecilia Dumas she charges 500.00.

Also, since your on a budget, why dont you go with a miniature package..you can go with Cancun Studios for two hours-100 images (high resolution) (includes romantics and family) NO RECEPTION though $650.00 and then add a TDD session on top of that for $350.00. And that will include 1.5 hours at your session and 50 images on a CD. Its a great deal if you are on a budget!!

Good Luckelefant.gifelefant.gif

You don't have to hire a "home country" photographer. I live in Canada and am hiring an American photographer. Maybe you could look into that as an option!

Good Luck!

From everything I read - I think I may go with them instead of using the resort photographer.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
