    Hi there,

    Has any one used or heard of photographer Lidya Solemidt?

    Her pictures look amazing and her packages are a good price.

    This is a link to her blog

    Lidya Solemidt

    I am getting married at the Moon Palace and would prefer to use an outside photographer for my wedding and TTD pics.

    Let me know what you think of her pics.

    Thanks

        I have actually hired her. We're getting married after you so I don't have any photos. Thus far she is really great to work w/, speedy responses, I asked her to find me a location that is beach w/ a cenote near by and she's been working on it for me. And she has GREAT prices, especially if you do a TTD w/ her. Her TTD shoot is $400 if you book your photography w/ her, or $500 if you just want TTD. Her deposit fee is $250 and she gets your photos back to you within like 8 days.

        Here's her email: lidya.solemidt@gmail.com

        She responds very quickly. I don't know how much of her work you've seen but here is her website.

            honestly, i can't remember how i found her, it may have been the forum. I did ALOT of searching. One of the biggest reasons we chose her was budget. We have an 8 month old baby and just don't have $10,000+ to spend. Having money in case of emergency w/ her is more important to us. Our original budget was $15,000 but once I became pregnant we pushed back the wedding and lowered our budget to $5500. So her prices were AMAZING! And even better w/ TTD

            Then of course we had to look at her work. The best thing about her work, I think, is she's done so many different weddings. I felt like when I looked at other photogs that they had beautiful photos, but I was looking at the same style photos with different couples. We wanted someone who would give us something our own.

            I've been in touch w/ and I'm constantly throwing different ideas at her and she loves and is willing to anything

            She's been so pleasant that we're thinking of spending the extra money (since we've already gone over budget $900 for real flowers) to have her longer than originally planned.

            She's also been so great that if we wanted to add anything to our package she'll negotiate w/ us.

            I contacted several photogs, but I kind of felt like they gave me facts about their service and weren't really wanting to know what I wanted and if they were willing to do something they didn't normally do. As soon as I contacted her, she was okay w/ anything I wanted and willing to do something she's never tried or even thought of. After talking w/ her, I new I wanted her.

            Sorry, its so long hope it might help. If you haven't contacted her, I suggest go ahead and do so, even if its just an email. She's a delight and will get back to VERY quickly.

              What kind of different things are you after if you don't mind me asking e.g what sort of things did you add to your package and what package did you choose?

              I am thinking of going with package 6 or maybe even 7.

              I have contacted her and she is very quick at getting back to me.

                  What is your resort photgrapher like? Have you seen their pictures? and what makes you want to go with an outside photographer?

                      We don't want the normal staged family photos etc. Maybe 1 or 2 w/ the whole family. The rest I just want of us all messing around, not anything set up. I want her to work at different angles than getting the same ceremony pics that everyone gets. I love pictures that come from crazy angles.

                      We were going to customize our package w/ what photos we want, but we have decided to just go with package 2. We just want photos of our ceremony which will only be 15 minutes, and then a fun hour of photos after that. You have to pay an additional $300 to any package for the negatives of ALL the pictures she takes, and then the pics she's edited. She will give you a letter to allow you to reprint her picks, so I'm going to just take my negatives and decide what pictures I want and what sizes and have them printed at home.

                      Plus she's willing to travel where ever we want to do photos.
