Looking for a photographer to bring with us

Recommended Posts

I am getting married at the Sun Palace resort in Cancun in November..... our resort has a " No outside vendor" policy. The only way around it is if we have them stay at the hotel with us as a guest. That being said we are on a limited budget and really trying to find a photographer that we can fly down for a 2 night stay and shoot the day of the wedding only.... Any suggestions?

I never can find that "rolling the eyes" smilies when you need it..... j/k

 

there are tons of photogs on this site that would fit. just start inquiring with the ones you like.

 

maybe Jean Marcus?

oh my goodness there are SO many. If budget is your biggest concern I'd inquire w/ photogs in your area that you like. Someone who hasn't had the opportunity to do a DW will be more likely to swap fees for travel. But there seriously are TONS of photogs on BDW in and around cancun that you could just cover there nights and fees (save on flights) and use, and there are tons on here from the states and Canada you could look into!

I would check with Moments that Matter photography (they are a vender on here) as they could come onto the hotel property as a guest or book one night (they are Canadian) and already live in the Cancun area. We had them booked originally, but when our flights were cancelled we had to change countries.... Their prices were quite resonable as well as could possibly work out cheaper than bringing someone with you.

I think what every one else suggested is great. Just start looking for photographers that you like, and inquire about their rates, I think you will be surprised what some of them might do a DW for.

That's what I am looking for!!! Someone I can swap travel for fees :)

Definitely make sure to take a look through the photog Vendor pages here. There are some amazing options. I agree with Jacilynda, scope out a few in your area that you really like and then chat with them. Most photographers are willing to negotiate, and most seem to love the opportunity to shoot a DW.

P.S. Josh Brown is Amazing and his rates are great! (he's a vendor here on BDW)

If you really want to swap for travel fees, then you really need to look into photogs who haven't done a DW. Photogs who have aren't going to swap for travel fees... But keep in mind you still want to find a photog who can do amazing work on the beach!

    • 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?
