    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.

        Great list of all the prices.  I wonder if the prices have changed much since 2006?

          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!
