Extremely useful thread! It's so difficult to pick a photographer! Our wedding package comes with one, but I'm quite picky about the type of photos, and I'm not sold on the "included" photographer. I prefer journalistic type photos, and I'm working with a budget under $1000. Impossible? I hope not.

Hi , I just got married at Gran Caribe Real 02/14/2012. I loved my photographer and he had the pics ready before I left Mexico. Not many can do that. He was just amazing. His name is Nestor Meneses and can be reached at Nestorfotografia@gmail.com

 

Take a look at my pics...It was an amazing day and thanks to him I can remember it forever!

 

here is the link to wedding pics and the trash the dress in cenote photo shoot. ( I donated my dress in Mexico afterwards)

Hello! Just wanted to add a name to the mix, I know these other photographers are more well known but we used Christian Velasco of sianphoto.com his prices were much more affordable and his skills are amazing! It's very photojournalistic in style, not posed or artificial. He also was super nice and ran around the entire day making sure to get every single shot but was never in the way! We have stunning photos of the couple and our families but also he captured the dance floor action and fun. I cannot say enough things about him.

Wow thanks for all this info!!!! Ever since I started looking into a destination wedding I have loved Del Sol they would be my dream photographer. My FI always tells me "you get what you pay for" which is soooo true and pictures to me are so important so I am willing to pay big bucks for a photographer just not sure if I'm willing to pay more than what my wedding packing costs lol. When the time comes I will still try to get quote from them and cross my fingers that Del Sol is within my price range!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
