Hello, and congrats on your upcoming wedding. I wanted to let you know that vendors aren't allowed to send or post to you on their services, according to the vendor rules. However if you use the "search" button and type in your location, I'm sure their is a list out there of all the photographers and you can go from there. We set these rules up so that the brides wouldn't be bugged by all sorts of advertisement.

 

Good luck in your search, we have some amazing photographers on this forum and ones that were recommended by other members.

Prices really range from one photographer to a next.

You could go from $350 for a 2 hour photographer to $10,000+ for an all day photographer. It really depends on your budget.

What I would suggest is deciding what budget YOU feel comfortable spending on photography. Then find a photographer that fits your style, budget, and needs for your day.

As for lists of photographers, definitely listen to Tammy about the search feature. You'll find all kinds of them in the Cancun area. But also remember that you can often times fly down your own photographer for three days of coverage for the same amount, if not cheaper, than a lot of local Mexican photographers.

Happy searching! :)

 

as far as comparisons... I flew down my photographer for four nights. I paid just under $2500. However, there are many photographers who will shoot destination weddings for the cost of travel alone! So just don't be afraid to contact a bunch of them!

There are two I would definitely recommend based on my research, prices and the comments of other brides. If your looking for nice but reasonable I would suggest
Moments that Matter & Mexican Wedding Photographers. About $1000 for a mid level package with lots of photos and extras and good reviews.

Good luck and Congrats!

I also did some research on photographers, just make sure you find out if your resort will charge outside vendor fees... the resort we are going to charges an outside vendor fee + day pass (for the photographer and if they need to bring an assistant)... ! so it can still get expensive...

the catalonia doesn't have the outside vendor fee. Catalonia yucatan & catalonia riviera maya just about the same hotel. There are different check in desks, but the restaurants and pools are shared.

this is where I had my wedding. Do a search & you'll find the catalonia riveria maya thread I started. Since my wedding, there have been 2 more from BDW girls so you can see their pictures too.

Hi. Not sure if you already booked a photog but I was also on a budget and needed a photographer. I decided to go with Ivan Luckie. I have just met him 2 days ago and he seems to really love what he does. His prices are also amazing!! His website is http://www.luckiephotography.com

Before booking Ivan, I was looking into Sascha gluck, who was also pretty reasonable.
