    Yeah, you guys were married before going out there, that makes sense then. But I feel the same way about wanting to be surprised. But it sounds soooo tempting to do it!! I looove the way 5th ave looks, especially at night. Wish we could take pics at night, but know that's not going to happen. Probably will have to have our guests take pics. I really wish we could do the TTD session! If you don't mind me asking, how much was your charge you could PM me if you want.

    As for this cold, I work by NikeTown on Michigan ave, and usually walk almost 2 miles home. Yesterday when it was 13 degrees by the time I got out of work, I had to jump on the bus. crazy cold! but funny that you said you guys are relocating to AZ. I've been w/ my fiance for 8 years now and we were so close to relocating there. My aunt has lived there for 20 years now and I've been there sooo many times. I absolutely love it there. Good luck. What part are you looking to move to?

I would highly recommend her as Mike and I are so happy with our pictures, and we had a great time working with her. She photographed our Friday wedding at the Iberostar Lindo with an assistant, and we scheduled our 2 hour TTD session for the Monday after at the Iberostar Grand (we switched hotels after the wedding for honeymoon). We had to pay a $50 guest pass for her and her assistant for the wedding day and $150 guest pass for them to come to the Grand. I'm not sure why there was such a difference in the guest pass prices, and we didn't find out until the day of the TTD so we just went with it. We had to pay the resort photoshop $300 for hiring an outside photographer for the wedding, but we only had to pay that once. The guest passes were charged to our room, and we paid the photoshop with travelers checks.

      I had sent Claudia a list of some of our must have pictures and some other shots that I liked from other weddings. I also gave her a list of all our guest names with pictures ahead of time to help know who everyone was. Citlalli was calling people by their names on the wedding day so it must have helped! She has the patience of a saint because Mike's nephew doesn't listen and apparently doesn't cooperate very well for pictures. She still managed to get some cute pictures with him even though I know it had to be really frustrating. Mike was aggravated with him and had to hold his arms down at one point so I can only imagine what she was thinking. Ha ha!

      Citlalli had some great ideas and went along with other pictures that we wanted. The colors of the pictures are amazing! We got a photo album filled with color and black and white 4x6 prints, a bunch of 8x10 and 5x7 prints of color and black and white, and all our digital negatives on 4 CDs.

      Here is the link to our pics if you want to check them out:

          Thanks so much for posting...your pics are AMAZING! I'm so glad to see them too, because I have booked Citalli for our wedding and I haven't seen many reviews yet on her or her work. Does anyone know if she speaks fluent English?

            She spoke English just fine.

              Can I ask, was Citalli your first choice or was Claudia? I'm so confused about who i want! I've seen more of Citalli's work, so its quite hard to decide!

                I looked into Claudia first along with other photographers. We chose Citlalli based on her work and the price range worked for us.
