Iberostar Photographer?

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if anyone has heard of fotocaribbean? This is who Iberostar uses for their photographer. I am trying to figure out of I should go with them or someone else (and pay more!)

Definetly, do your reasearch on them like I did, we are getting married at the Del mar in may...
Make sure to look at the details:
+there megapixel on their camaras
+do they respond to emails in a timely manor (ummm, they didn't respond at all to mine)
+are there pics in focus
+do you like posed pics or more photojournalistic ones (if you like photojournalism better this is not the company for you)
etc...


All in all, I recommend from reading alot ALOT of posts not to go with the resorts photography (check out posts on tripadvisor.com too)... We are going with claudiaphoto.com and using Citlalli. Because after doing my homework and asking millions of questions we weren't satisfied with the resorts photographer but that's just us...

THere is an entire thread dedicated to Iberostar Brides. Just do a search for it and it should pop up!

Hope it helped!

Thank you. I am torn between using them because of the price or going with someone else. They did respond to all my e-mails, but we will see. I have a deposit down with another photographer, but we will see. Thanks for your opinion.

We hired an outside photogrpaher, but used fotocaribbean for our videographer. We were extremely disappointed in our video so I'm so glad we did not use them for our pictures. The pictures were extremely important to me so I'm really glad we paid more for an outside photographer, I just wish we had done the same for our video.

Rule number one... you have to find the photography style that you want. Number two... you need to find the person that shot that and hire them... not someone that works for them.

Photos are a very personal thing and you should love them. Good photography lasts the test of time and great photography brings out emotion and allows you to remember a moment in time!

Best of luck with all your plans.

Hi!

 

I am getting married at the Tucan and we are using an outside photographer..... Pictures are the only thing after we come home so its something I want to spend the money on... even if it meant the $300 fee to bring in someone from the outside!

After talking to some of the Tucan brides, I have decided to use an outside photographer as well. Thanks girls (you know who you are) for the great information. I think I will be very pleased with my decision.

Just wanted to chime in on this one too. DH and I were initially looking in to using fotocaribbean as it was a more cost-effective option as opposed to hiring an outside photographer, however, after seeing fotocaribbean's website (yikes, it looks a bit better now but it used to be much worse) and seeing samples of their work via a very dissatisfied bride on the mr. iberostar boards, I decided against using them. Best decision I ever made. I am so thrilled with how my PROFESSIONAL pictures turned out that I can't believe I ever considered using fotocaribbean. I find their shots to be very posed/cheesy/fake and they make all couples that get married there use the exact same locations and the exact same poses. It is not creative or original at all. Just my opinion though.

 

Best of luck to you! There is a plethora of talented photographers that post here on BDW, I would talk to them and see what they can do for you. :)
