I am having the hardest time deciding on a photographer! This has been the one thing that I just cannot decide on. I keep going back and forth between Juan Carlos, Claudia Rodriguez, Del Sol, and the list could go on. I really would love to have some input from other people out there that either had a difficult time making this decision or are going through the same thing.

I really would like to stay around or under $3500 but I want to still have the photographer for plenty of time during the day so they can capture all of the wonderful moments.

So if anyone can help... please please please do!

do a search on the forum for each of those and you'll find lots of info. Especially look at the other girls reviews they do after their wedding. They grade each vendor, you can get a lot of info there!

There are a lot of wedding photographers out there, aren't there?

 

Here are the things I think you should take into account as you consider your options:

 

1. Style and quality of work

2. Personality of the photographer

3. Professionalism

4. Price

 

Hope this helps.

 

Best wishes,

Tod

If photography is as important to you as it seems, you may want to consider looking for a local photographer to take along? This will give you a chance to possibly see thier work in person and make sure personailities would work well on your wedding day.

 

There are a lot of photographers that are fairly new to the destination wedding end, and would be happy to cover weddings for not much more than travel expenses. That might help keep you under your budget, but allow you to have full day coverage.

Have you contacted those three photographers? I agree that their work is all great... but honestly I think that budget would only allow for one of them in that list...

 

And if you still want to add more photographers to your list and confuse yourself even more, do like Macphail has mentioned and contact some local photographers to fly down to your wedding with you. I think you'll be happily surprised that your $3500 budget will not only get you a great photographer, but most likely include coverage for three days!!

I went back and forth as well. Some on your list were too expensive for me. I ended up with Rafael Ibanez and I'm thrilled. He has been great to email, great reviews from other brides, more reasonably priced, extremely helpful.

 

Also my FI does photography as a hobby so he had the final say. We looked at each photogs gallery/portfolio on their website as well as watched their blogs. The one that we both fell for was Rafael!! RAFAEL IBAÑEZ

I looked at Rafael Ibanez too, thanks to DallasAshli and Magda and my curiosity - WOW! Now if I could just look up his website so I can get his pricing!

 

Sascha Gluck might be another one to consider also - very nice work from what I see on the website.

Thank you all so much for your input. I am extremely impressed with Rafael Ibanex's photos! Thank you for suggesting him. I just sent him an email to see what he has to offer. Thank you!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
