Claudia Rodriguez-Citlali *TDD Slide Show

Recommended Posts

So I finally got a response back from Claudia regarding TDD fee the next day, she told me it was going to be $850.00. girl_werewolf.gifwooooooow! Thats more than what they charge out here in CA... So I decided to ask her to send me a sample of the work and this is what she sent me, so I wanted to share with you girls the clip. The TDD doesn't really look like its anything that I was expecting for an $850.00 shoot. As a matter of fact, after finishing up the entire clip I was still waiting to see the TDD pix. I have seen so many on this site that I think my expectations are pretty high. Dont get me wrong, Im still booking her for my wedding but I think TDD is too overpriced.

There were a couple TTD pics around #75 or around there. I'm guessing they either didn't include all the TTD pics in the slideshow, or maybe the couple didn't get too crazy with it. We booked Citlalli for our wedding and TTD shoot, but these were the first TTD pics I have seen from her.

Not sure if Im even suppose to be exposing those to everyone but oh well... lol What is the difference between her and Claudia? I hear Claudia's work is amazing also but I have yet to see her TDD. I think TDD is a bit to expensive, I saw some photographer charging 500.00 I just dont know which one it was... -ugh!

Those pictures are very pretty! I think she did a great job. The couple might not have wanted a crazy TTD-they had a lot of pictures just the 2 of them...I would book Citalli for mine if we were doing one.

I think that Leshay might be a member on here also

One of the problems with TTD or Day after sessions is that they are in such high demand here in the Riviera Maya that booking these dates can conflict with booking weddings.

 

Especially if you are asking for this session on a weekend. After all, our clients get married every day of the week, so any day session could be a wedding.

 

If I book a bunch of shoots filling my calender with $850 jobs, then I'm loosing out on making potentially 5+ times that for 1 wedding client... We were faced with the same problem.

 

Our May 2008 looked like this: (22 weddings + 8 TTD Sessions)....Not any room in there for lotsa ttd's... Lots of our clients ask for the ttd as well as the wedding, but the low cost of the TTD isnt good for business when you look at it from the accounting side of possibly booking weddings on those dates.

 

This may explain the difference you are seeing from California... There are some pricey folks there though...

I just peeked at the slideshow since I have met the bride, but I have a couple of comments...

 

#1 Leshay you looked fantastic!!!! Wow! Congratulations to you both! The photographs show it was a beautiful heartfelt day! smile159.gif

 

#2 Cancun bride, when you compare the prices with the photographers in Cali it is good to be sure you are comparing apples to apples, ie. experience and ability of the photographer and also what is included in that price. If the fee includes only the session and you need to purchase all the images afterwards it may not be the "deal" it appears. I think that most experienced photographers will charge at least that as a creative fee if they are including the set of edited high resolution files. If the full size files are not included it would be good to find out what the cost would be to purchase all those images (even the ones you don't want to have printed will be part of your memories and you will probably want to have them!) and then compare pricing based on that! Hope that helps!

 

 

best,

 

Elizabeth

We are having Claudia do our wedding, and I wanted TTD pics too, but I didn't even see anything mentioned about it on her website or anything... I still really want them, but I am guessing we will not be able to because it would cost a lot the following day... I guess we would have to see how things go...

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
