Tropical Pictures-HELP!!

Recommended Posts

Well, we are back! We ended up going with the resort photographer, bc Photosouvenir never got back to us. I actually did ask Photosouvenir if they could do a smaller package for us and they did say no. I am extremely happy with the shots that we got from the resort photog. Our package only included 50 pictures, but of course they took many more, and we ended up buying more. We ended up with 92 edited photos and all 237 original photos for $800 which we were extremely pleased with (after a lot of negotiating!) We were nervous when we first got there and realized the photogs walking around each day taking guests pics were going to be doing our wedding, but we seriously could not be happier. I think as long as the photographer has decent equipment, it is all about the poses and locations, and we were able to direct the photographer according to what we wanted...plus my husband looked to handsome and i felt so beautiful, I don't think anyone could have screwed up our shots! i would def say if you are on a budget, the dreams resort photogs did great! i don't think i would have been any happier with Photosouvenirs, and we saved at least $400

Hi there! Thanks for the quick review! I was bummed that Photosouv. is not avail for my wedding date - so now I feel stuck. I did email TP asking about how much it was to get all the pics for proofs, and they did tell me that we will have to negotiate. I kind of hate that idea, I feel like they should have a better pricing system so that you can be better prepared with a budget- especially since I know that I will want all the proofs!
Do you have any shots that you can share so that I have an idea of what I am looking at? And - did you meet with the photographer prior to go over your shot list / did you give it to him that day?
Sorry for so many questions - I feel like photo's are a really important part of the wedding!

I agree, the photos are what we were most willing to invest in, and I was super nervous going with the resort photog. We did not meet with the photographer until the actual wedding. She also was very limited in her English, which led to some minor miscommunications, but she was very sweet. She just started taking shots of us, and than I directed her on the couple I really wanted. Like I said, we had originally bought the smallest package of 50, but than when we went to go over the pics the next day, there were so many more we liked, we ended up buying them all. I think we got a pretty good deal when I think of how much money it costs in the US. Just remember to be VERY firm with them. They started off somewhere outrageous like $1600, and I was really nervous bc I know they know they have us to a certain extent since these are our wedding day pictures, and they know how special they are to us. And the guy who is making the negotiations was different than the photographer. We got the 50 prints which were edited, the other 42 just edited on a CD, and all the originals. We told him we only had a certain amount of cash, and just kept talking him down. I will try to post some pics as soon as I figure out how!

HMMM so it appears that they suck you in and then you got to go for it to a point huh? Well that is VERY good info to have- thank you for sharing i feel a lot more prepared now! I can't have Photosouv. they are booked, so I think that I will stick w/ TP due to the fact that the other options on the option are not mind blowing for me.

 

Try uploading pics to photobucket and then imbedding the image on a post.

I am in the same boat as Kim... Photosouv has been booked for my wedding date and I am really stressing about using TP; but our budget is our budget and we just can't afford to fly someone in.

Mrslbs.. would love to see your pics for a reference!!! PM me if you need help getting them on here.

    • 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.
