    Hi Everyone,

    I am getting married on July 15th 2009 at the Moon Palace Resort in Mexico. I have heard from so many brides that they wish that they had brought a professional photographer from back home.We can't afford this and decided to help the photographer and give him more direction. What were some of the pictures that you just had to haveMy list so far is:
    1. Husband taking garter off with teeth
    2. Walking hand in hand into the sunset
    3. Him dipping me and kissing me
    4. picture of our feet in the sand
    5. picture of wedding dress hung up

    Can you guys help me out and tell me any pictures that worked well for you or what you are giving your photographer!!!

      go to the wedding photos section and look at a ton of pictures and put together a list based on all your favorites!

        May I make a suggestion? Most photographers are going to know the basic pictures their bride and grooms are going to want to do. However the ones you should list out for them are ones like you with certain guests. One's that maybe might be missed if the photographer doesn't know who is important to you (they will know to get shots with you, hubby and the parents, etc)

        My only regret, and I had an amazing photographer, is that I didn't tell him to take pictures of just my Husband.

        Also I think you might be surprised at how affordable some of the photographers are that are located within the states. When I hired my Destination photographer (he was located in Cabo, so he was local there) I only hired him 3 hours, and it was very $$, but he was worth every dime.

                Here is one to get you started. I had a non-pro, so I wanted all my bases covered. I also did a walk through of the locations when we got there...

                  what i've found myself doing is, looking through all the gorgeous past brides photos on here, and saving pictures that i like. I know the photographer will know what basic photos to take, but i want some different ones done, so this way, i'll be able to show her!

                  Thats a good idea about the ppl we want photos with though, didn't think of that!

                  Also, we are getting married at mp, and are going to use a cancun based photographer for our wedding. The photos i've seen from the mp photographers look good, but i want better...and a ttd session!
