Need Band and Photographer for 3/21/09 Costa Verde Wedding

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

I am getting married on March 21, 2009. For some reason, I have not been able to find a photographer or a band for the wedding. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Hmmm... I have you looked at hiring a photographer to travel with you to Costa Verde? I'm sure there are tons of photographers who would offer to go to such a beautiful place and take photos for you.

And for the band... yeah, that's a hard one! Sorry.

We're using El Velo Photography for our February wedding. You could try them.. I'm really excited and they've been wonderful with communcation. I've heard great things about them...

Good luck!

You may have a difficulty to find local photographer but I'm sure that you will find easily photographer (even in NY) who will travel to your wedding. Just find your favorite photographers and ask for a quote. I know that March is not the busiest time and you should be able to find good photographer in $4000 - $5000 range with travel included.

You may PM me if you want m to post your date on Wedding Photography Forum and get some more quotes.

 

Best,

 

Anna

Hi Anna,

 

I too have scoured the internet for Costa Rica photographers (I'd rather spend money on actual photography, not flights!). The best I've found so far is http://www.comfortstudio.com/. Julie has contacted me via email, and she seems very very nice. I believe packages start at $1000 and go up to about $4000.

 

As far as bands go, you may want to contact your hotel. My hotel manager is arranging a Calypso band for me that is apparently fantastic, but i never would have discovered them on my own.

 

Good luck :)

We reeeaaaaaaaaaaaalllllly don't want to spend more money on the photographer than on the reception, ceremony, dress, flights, and flowers combined. This is a very low budget wedding, so flying someone to Costa Rica isn't going to fit into our budget. Plus, I can't imagine there isn't other photographers out there in Costa Rica. This is just kind of stressful so close to the wedding.

Hi Anna,

 

Just to clarify, that photographer I linked is in Costa Rica, and if you email her with an approximate amount you want to spend I'm sure you could work something out.

 

The band at my wedding is going to be $300. I think that's pretty decent, but I would definitely be inclined to ask someone who lives in Costa Rica about that sort of thing.

 

Also, there actually are quite a few other photographers in CR. Go to this site: CrawlWall Monitoring Service CWMSZZ-3494899496 and scroll down to where it says "Costa Rica Photographers - More Listings" (the stuff higher up on the page is just advertised sites that are no good).

 

Some of the sites listed there are not for wedding photography, but if you go through them all you should be able to find something. A lot of sites don't list their prices, but if you email them for a quote definitely include your budget and I'm sure most photographers will find something that works.

 

If you could give some more details, like how much photography coverage you want, and what kind of band you prefer (and even your budget if you're comfortable) you may get some more helpful responses. Good luck!

btw TicaRica, sorry for never getting back to you about that band. I played phone tag with my WC for forever, and by the time I talked to her you had already posted that it was sorted out.

 

You wedding is in one month exactly!! You must be getting really excited...are you nervous too?
