My best friend is also getting married in Mexico in 2012 !! She inquired about a weekday in Sept. 2012....and she claims she's booked already !! I've also read a few posts and the common response is "I'm already booked for your date".
Hi "Indy", Yes, I think "active" would be a good descriptive...I don't think there are too many out there whose cameras get more of a workout as many BDW brides can attest!
Please let me know if you have not received a response by now to your latest email. I am sorry it took a while to hear back this time! We are not yet booking 2012 dates, we will begin to do that at some point in late 2010 or early 2011. Since we do limit the number of events we cover in a given month, and the dates do fill so rapidly, so the day of the week is often not a good indicator of availability.
Just a general comment... We photographers can tend to receive quite a bit of email, in order to facilitate communication it is very helpful to fill in the requested contact information completely: full name, phone number, date and location of wedding.
It is good to hear so many suggestions and comments on photographers, there are many options out there and I am sure there is an ideal photographer out there for each couple. One "tip" I would like to give to those searching in order to avoid any surprises. Ask to see complete real weddings start to finish, the actual groups of images just as the client received them ( and of course those images should be from the photographer who will be shooting your wedding from weddings where he was responsible as the principle photographer). The proof is in the pudding as they say! (what on earth does that mean though?)
