    Hi everyone,

    I was supposed to leave this Saturday for my wedding in Mexico. Our vacation company has cancelled all flights to Mexico for the month of May, and therefore we had to postpone our wedding.

    We have rebooked for June 2nd at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites in Montego Bay, Jamaica. I had arranged for a professional photographer to shoot my wedding in Mexico and I'm hoping I can pull some sort of miracle out of a hat and find an equally amazing Jamaican photographer.

    If anyone can offer any advice, I would really appreciate it. I'm going to start browsing the Jamaica vendor threads as much as I can to see if I can find anything...

    Our price range is ~ $2000.

    Thanks in advance! Life can be a bit crazy, can't it?!

              I spent countless hours researching photographers and made a final decision on Misha Earle. She will be photgraphing my wedding in Montego Bay and my TTD at Dunns River Falls. Her posted prices for 8 hours and to photograph both sessions is $2,200.
              She is absolutely wonderful. She's really sweet and passionate about her work. She usually returns emails within 48 hours because she lives on the outskirts of the city and has to travel to check her email.
              If you need a response sooner rather than later please email me at mary@marybrealty.com and I can give you her personal cell number.
              If you contact her please let her know that Mary referred you.

                i have actually spoken to a few photogs on here that feel really bad for the displaced brides so we are working on a thread for photogs to possibly do weddings at a really reduced rate.

                check in with this thread to see what photogs have signed up.

                  Wow, that is so great. Cudos to all those photogs!! Those poor displaced brides need all the stress relief they can get and that just lightens the load a little I'm sure. This forum is so amazing for organizing stuff like that!


                  I know that Marshall1980 used someone based in Montego Bay and was VERY happy with them. Here's her review...http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t40732

                  Good luck!!!
