    In my original post, you answered my questions about photography.  We e-mailed Victor Herrera Photography, where Adrian works and we were quoted $2500 for him, we were wondering if you negotiated with them down to $2000 or if their prices went up.  Otherwise, we were thinking of going with Sara from the same company as she is only $1900.  Plus, we assume that we still have to pay the $500 to the resort.

     

    Thanks again,

    Ashley

What email address do you ladies have for her?
      Thank you in advance K

       

      The resort needs to do something about this

        You probably have the right one, but here it is just in case...

          We started as soon as we booked! The earlier the better....especially when it takes so much time in between responses! My advice, be as specific as possible with what you want and ask for price quotes for every detail you are thinking of. It will make it easier down the road. Remember, you can also send pictures of your ideas and ask for them to do it.  For the DJ, we emailed them directly to start planning.

            What DJ are you going with and how much are they charging you??  I am debating on whether this is the way I want to go, or just bring an iPod with a speaker system.

                Thank you. Yeah, that's the one I have been sending emails to & like a crazy I checked my sent mail several times just to make sure I sent it. Thanks again K

                You probably have the right one, but here it is just in case...weddings.xpm@excellence-resorts.com I feel your pain! We leave in less than 2 weeks and do not have our "planner" from her...that she promised to have to us last month. We have most of the details done but still missing a few things to finalize, and we REALLY need to see her cost estimate vs our cost estimate. I'm getting worried! Looks like I'll be calling Mexico this week...very frustrating!

                  We did not negotiate because the $2,000 for 8 hours was the best price that we had found after much searching. I think his prices just went up - photographers prices typically go up each year.

                   

                  I saw William Sanchez (who we really liked) posted on a boards for WAY less than what we were quoted only 1 year later. I think the demand for him just skyrocketed and his prices increased over $1,000 in 1 year. I think it's how the business works. Sara's photos also seemed really beautiful.

                    We tried to get the $500 resort fee down, but there was no wiggle room there. I seriously hope any of you future brides can find a way to get that fee down. If you do, please share because it is ridiculous.
