    Thanks for this. I actually hired Dino Gomez. I was initially going with an extremely extremely artistic photographer who was even more expensive. But when my sister looked at the pics she didn't think the brides actually looked pretty. Dino has an artistic edge, but still he focuses on the bride looking pretty. Years ago I used to model and I know, some photographers really get caught up on lighting, etc., but don't focus on the subject!!!! I know lighting is "extremely" important, but it is good to have a combo of a beautiful photo, artistic edge, with the bride and "others" looking great also.

      At the time when I was looking for photographers, I was really interested in someone who was talented and had great photos I could see on a website. Elizabeth Medina does exceptional work but her prices were too high for us. She personally recommended Cecilia Dumas to us.

      Since we were having a small wedding, we didn't require many hours of photography. Cecilia worked with us to make a package for 3 hours of service. I was extremely worried about hiring her at first since e-mails were not responded to in a timely manner. I actually wondered if she would show up on the date of our blessing.

      One the day of our ceremony, she arrived early and came directly to our room. She brought along an assistant. Cecilia is very sweet and fun to work with. She makes you feel like a model while she takes shots.

      It took a little over a week for us to get our photos and we had her courier them to the hotel. The photos were really great and she took some spectacular photos. My only regret was not telling her to take more photos of me from my good side. lol.

      Since then it looks like her prices have increased in price. Before we booked her too, it looked like she had done that too. I can't say whether the increase in price is worth it or not because I'd have to see other photographers work to make comparisons. I think for the price we paid she did a great job. I only wish more photographers would just include the CD at no additional cost.

      I uploaded a photo into my profile but somehow it doesn't show up. I wished it did since it was a great shot of us on the beach.

      Hey MayanBride,

      It seems like Cecilia takes a long time responding to emails. What's the best email for her? I emailed her a few days ago and I'm still waiting to hear from her.

        i didn't end up hiring her, but i had contacted her a few times and her response time was always pretty good (just a few days). she was always very polite and professional, and SHE sent follow up emails when she hadn't heard back from ME, lol!

            I just want to say what an amazing photographer Erick was from Claudia Rodriguez. He was so great to work with and really easy going. He had us laughing and posing in great positions. Even husband said that he really liked him. We did a TTD with him and he was hysterical laughing at us and we even jumped in the pool with our outfits on!! I highly recommend him and I can not wait to see the pictures

                    Thanks for putting these photographers together! I have been trying to decide whether to go with the resort photographer or hire an outside photographer. I need to decide soon, I'm getting married in four months!

                      Has anyone used Cancun Studios? I've hired them because I liked their style and the price what right for us too. Just wondered what peoples thought were that actually have dealt with them for their wedding day.
