Moments that Matter Photography... and Swine Flu

Recommended Posts

Hello to Mayan Brides.

I wanted to address you directly as we have been dealing with the Swine Flu panic for the past couple of days.

 

This situation is very distressing for everybody. Lori and I have talked extensively about how to handle this situation. We have decided to only offer refunds to those brides who can not make it because they have no choice.

 

At this time, we are going to wait for more information to surface about what is going on. If the World Health Association decides there is a problem and grounds your flights, we will refund your money at that time. If they do not consider Mexico to be a threat and allow people to fly here, we will not be issuing a refund if you decide not to come.

 

As it stands for Lori and I at this time, we have lost our business temporarily. If it goes any further, we may not be able to live and operate from Mexico any longer and lose our business here permanently. This is the only fair solution at this time considering we are losing everything we have worked to build here.

Lincoln,

 

I think this is a very fair solution. Unfortunately, this media driven situation is going to hurt alot of people and my heart goes out to all the brides, grooms, and vendors that are going to be affected by this.

Please note... we would only shut down and leave Mexico if brides were no longer allowed to fly here.

Im hope this media madness blows over shortly and we can get back to doing what we do best. Capturing beautiful images in one of the worlds greatest locations!

As a bride who has been in a state of stress and anxiety since this stupid swine flu frenzy broke, I feel awful that this has affected so many brides/grooms but also how it has impacted the livelihood of so many wonderful vendors (like yourself), businesses and people in the area.

 

I hope you guys can hang in there because Lisa is right, there are so many brides on here who are still hoping the path remains open for them to continue with their plans. Although we all know how fluid this entire situation continues to be, things seem to be looking up. Hopefully in a couple weeks things will somewhat be back to normal ~ a tropical paradise for all to enjoy wink.gif

Hello Mayan brides! I just wanted to share this great news with you.

 

Lori and I are elated with the news that the CDC has lifted its Travel Health Warning recommending against non-essential travel to Mexico, in effect since April 27, 2009. The recommendation has now been downgraded to a Travel Health Precaution for Mexico!

 

We think this is great news!!! One can only wish now that the media machine that has caused soooo much damage to Mexico will take this story and cover it with half the attention it gave when they were trying to make sensational news a couple weeks ago.

 

Best of luck with everything and we hope to see you down in Sunny and HEALTHY Mexico soon!!!

Lincoln & Lori

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
