My one piece of advice to all your brides is DONT SKIMP ON A PHOTOGRAPHER!!!!!!! thats my advice whether you get married in your home country or mexico, if you are expecting the resort photographer to do it.... use your brain.... you pay 2000 (ish?) dollars for the whole package including a photographer? thats just dumb.... you'd pay minimum that just for the photographer at home. so what do you expect of the pictures! you're going to get the same people who walk around during the week taking pictures of your friends and family with random animals or silly hats... these are not trained photogs. they are employees who got promoted to the resort photoshop and given a camera! It's not just this resort, it's ALL the resorts. my brother got married at barcelo and paid a local wedding photographer from cancun to come to the resort and do his pictures. we got married at this resort and did the same thing (different photographer) yes you have to pay $200 to allow them on the resort for the day, but it's well worth it. also we insisted on also getting the photoshop at the reception since it was part of my package, even though i had my hired photog... hey it's just more pics right? my husband and i left the photoshop laughing and couldnt even chose our free 25 prints we had to get duplicates of some because they were so bad! The best thing i ever did for my wedding was hire an outside photog, and viewing the resorts photos of our wedding proved how right i was!!
