    I have my heart set on doing a TTD session a day or 2 after our wedding. We are getting married May 4, 2009 at the Moon Palace in Cancun. We are using the resort photog for the ceremony and reception, which is fine. But, MP doesn't allow any outside vendors unless they are your "guest", which means we would have to pay for a extra room and they can come for an hour or 2 and do the TTD session... which seems like a waste of money & room! I'm wondering if anyone here has run into this problem and if there were any photog's that were willing to do a TDD session somewhere else.. public beach or something of that nature. Somewhere we could just meet up and do the shoot? Any advice or suggestions?

      There are many photogs who are willing to meet you at another location off your resort ~ in fact, I think most couples do their TTD sessions somewhere other than their resort to get a background/atmosphere that is different from their wedding day pictures. So I don't think you'll have any problem at all!

      Next step would be finding a local photog who offers TTD session since you're using the resort photographer for the wedding day, and luckily in the Cancun/RM area there are plenty! Off the top of my head I know there is.... (you can google all these names and find their websites):

      - Claudia Rodriguez
      - Cecilia Dumas
      - Vanessa Vargas
      - Michael Maurus
      - Del Sol Photography
      - Elizabeth Medina (she lives in another part of Mexico and requires at least 1 night stay - this is her policy at least for weddings)
      - Moments that Matter Photography
      - Playa Weddings
      - Octavio Montes

      Can't think of anymore at the moment, but I'm sure you'll have no problem finding someone who can fit your needs and budget ~ can't wait to see the final product TTD sessions look like so much fun!

              I'm using Moments That Matter photography for TTD and will be going off site. I think I would be to nervous or less inhibited to do the TTD right on site at our resort. We are going to go to a private beach or cenote with them for the TTD.

                Claudia Rodriguez is doing our TTD off the resort... it is a little bit more money, but worth it to go to a non-crowded beach

                  I am interested in the TTD session but i had some questions..... Doing the session, does it ruin your dress? Can anyone recomend a good photographer for the TTD. I am getting married in Dreams Tulum on May 8, 2009. Thanks

                    Hola! I did my trash the dress session on a public beach in Tulum. It's just south of the Tulum Ruins, so you can imagine how beautiful the water was. Plus, we went right away in the morning so the beach was empty. It was awesome. I will definitely go back there and I highly recommend it!
