Claudia Rodriguez Photography- Claudia?

Recommended Posts

We just returned from Mexico and did our TTD shoot with Claudia last Wednesday. She was super nice and I really liked spending time with her! The few pictures she showed us raw on her camera looked amazing, so I am really excited to see the finished products.

 

The only little thing that was a mix up was that in all our email correspondence, she had said she was going to pick us up at 6pm, but then the day of our shoot, she called and left us a voicemail saying she wanted to pick us up a little later than originally planned - at 4:30pm. LOL. Which was fine. We weren't doing anything but laying by the pool anyways!

 

She came right up and picked us up, and was really great. We went to Puerto Morelos and took some great pictures around the common, and then went down to the beach. The beach was crowded, so she took the extra time and we all drove out to Playa instead. It was really nice to have someone who would take the extra time to go to a different location instead of trying to make a imperfect location work.

 

I saw a few brides post that she doesn't get back to you very quickly - I experienced the same issue when I was arranging things with her. I'm actually still waiting for her to send me the final paypal request to finish paying her!

That was something really really strange to me. Unlike all my other vendors, she seemed to really not care about the payment ! I felt I had to insist to make it happen wink.gif She was saying : "don't worry, I have your pictures, so I know you'll pay me". It kind of made me freak out a little bit though !

More to come....
Pretty pictures!! How did you get over 300 photos? I thought it said 150 images for 3 hours in her package?

Claudia prints what is specified in the package but them gives you a CD with all the pictures she took. So we got the 8x10s, 5x10s, and 4x6s printed and then a CD with everything!

 

Someone was asking about how long it took to get your pics. My wedding was June 11th and I got the pics around the 2nd week of July.

Soon2bePowers--Your pictures are so beautiful!! I love the Thank You one and the two of you under the tree! Were those all taken at the VIM? And was that the bouquet included in the package?

Soon2bePowers...you're photo's were stunning! Thanks so much for sharing. You looked gorgeous and I LOVED your flowers! We have booked Citalli for our wedding in Feb 2010...same thing with the deposit on paypal, she has yet to get back to us with that (it's been about 2 weeks). As long as I still get Citalli (Claudia was booked) then it's fine by me. She put together a 4 hour package for us, and your feedback makes me glad we went with the 4 hrs instead of the 3 (although it looks like you got more than enough great shots) since you say it felt rushed.

Thanks so much! Yes, all of our photos were taken at VIM. They were all right near the beach wedding site. No, that bouquet was not included in the package, it is actually fake. I bought all my flowers from Roberta who I found on this site. I loved them and saved so much money as flowers were pretty expensive at VIM.

I did get my bouquet as part of my package and used it as decoration for the sand ceremony table. It was beautiful, too!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
