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. :)
    i'm glad you chimed in Kathy, because your pictures are AMAZING!!
    and they were definitely why i made my decision. :)

    without all the support of you ladies on this forum wedding planning would be much more stressful!

      Thanks Aimee!! I'm just trying to help my girls!! I think wedding pictures are soooooo important and that you should love them at the end of the day. And I truly love mine, I'm so pathetic, I look at them like...all the damn time haha.

          Hello there....I think I hear you typing away for there :)

          I can't believe it either. It is going so fast. Although a part of me is starting to freak out a bit because of all the "little" things I am discovering. Kind of frustrating! Oh well....I am sooooooo excited.

            I am going to chime in also even though I did not get married at Iberostar we originally looked into our resort photographer and even a college student to do ours not so much on price more just easy and our friends son is studying photography and does great work. However, when we really thought about our pictures we realize this is all we will have left from the day so we decided to bring a professional down with us and we are so so glad that we did. We hired Evan Evan Baines Photography and he did an exceptional job and I have to admit I go to his site everyday and check out our photos. I am anxiously waiting for the rest of them. So if its in your budget I would look at bringing someone from outside.

              Thank you so much, I'm glad you girls love them as much as I do hehe

              You will love Sascha, there are fewer nice people I've met than him. He's pretty funny too which I think helped me feel better with some of the stress the big day brings.

              jkcz - I'm so glad you posted that too, because I know a lot of people think that photography is where they should cut costs but I think a lot of girls should try to cut costs elsewhere. The pictures and the video are the only thing you'll really be able to remember the day by, may as well love them!

              My husband's uncle did a wedding DVD for us, it is awesome and it was free! I didn't even ask him to do it, he just did it because he enjoys doing it. So I would definitely recommend having family tape the ceremony too, as long as you don't mind it being as professional looking as it would if you hired a professional. I hope that makes sense haha.
