    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 Luck

            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!

              I came across this photographer and loved the pics and the hardcover books!
              Wedding Photographer for Cancun, Riviera Maya

              here are 2 links from Cancun Dreams weddings they sent me
              http://cancun-weddin....-preview-4.pdf
              http://cancun-weddin....-preview-3.pdf

              here is pricelist:
              http://cancun-weddin....ollections.zip

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

                oh, plus I still am not confirmed as to where they are moving our wedding group to - so this way I'm at least assured a photographer :)
