    Hi PV Brides!!

    I have visited some local photographers' websites but I'm not really convinced. I love some others but they're in the US and my budget is really tight to pay for their acommodations (I wish I could!!)

    Who would you recommend that makes journalistic/documentary style photos like Arpia, Lloyd or Apertura??

    Please advice!

    Thank you!

      Have you tried to contact the US photographers that you like? You might be surprised that some of their rates, might not be as bad as you are thinking. In some cases for the money you get much more. Just a suggestion. :-)

      I think to get a good photojournalist or documentary style photographer you'll end up having to spend a decent amount anyways. Why not try contacting some photographers from the CA area. Perhaps their rates would be cheaper since they aren't traveling so far and airfare might be better?

          We we decided to go with FerJuaristi Photographer, Destination Wedding Photographer. Fotografo en Monterrey, N.L con cobertura nacional e internacional

          He is lives in Monterrey, Mexico and I love his style. Check out his site and let me know what you think.... Plus he is affordable.

          Best of luck!

                  As Susana mention I highly recommend Fer Juaristi, he lives in my town Monterrey and the fares are not as high as coming from USA, also Rafa Iba┬▒ez or David Josue are awesome... you can search here:
