I have not been on this thread for a long time (been enjoying wedded bliss since March 30th
I just want to warn all brides...DO NOT use the resort photographers!!! Do yourself a favor and pay extra for an external photographer..we paid a fee plus 1 day pass for the assistant photographer. I can't remember what Ana originally wanted to charge us but I think we talked her down to $250 (that included fee & day passes).
There are several 'resort photographers', some who have skill but 3 when we were there were from Italy & spoke very limited (if any) English. Also I've heard from other brides you must purchase a package that night, before even viewing photos!! They delete all their photos within a 48 hour period (or something like that). You are taking a big risk to choose them and your pics will be mediocre at best, unless you luck out with a skilled photographer.
We used Moments That Matter and to be honest...BEST MONEY WE SPENT ON OUR WEDDING! Well worth it to have many picturres, a dvd slideshow to music and really people who werre unable to attend our wedding have commented that they felt like they were there after watching our dvd.
I hope this helps brides to be! Your wedding pictures are something you want done right...we look at ours often and smile
