Review - Photographer Michael Maurus/Cancun Wedding Photography

Recommended Posts

Well. I'm going to go ahead and chime in here.

 

I won't say anything in reference to the photographer you used nor his work as that's none of my business and I need not ever knock another person in my field but I will say this....Some of these photos are just bad editing. Many can be fixed in photoshop and enhanced to look much better.

 

I always tell photographers when I teach seminars etc "you cant polish a turd, so try and shoot it right so you don't have to". Clearly that gets lost in translation on occasion and let's be honest, no photographer, no matter how much smoke they blow up your butt or how they present themselves online is going to give you 100% fantastic pics that are everything you ever dreamed!

 

To the Original poster here. If you have a handful of images that mean much to you and you cant work it out with your photographer, contact us via the forum or our website and we would be happy to have one of our photo editors on our team take a look and see about tweaking a "few" for you as a courtesy.

 

The bottom line is people should be happy with their pics!

Simistar - I am so sorry that you had such a bad experience! From the good pictures I saw, you looks gorgeous! Oh that arm up in the air made me laugh... you have a good sense of humor. Good luck having them altered by a real professional!!

Wow!! I am still in shock and so so sorry about everything you had to go through. I initially thought about him and even sent a request when I was looking for photogs but luckily, and by that I cannot thank you enough Simistar, I sent you a PM and you told me all I needed to know. I can't believe the nerve of this guy. Just be glad that he would never be used by anyone here!!

W-o-w...Gino and Heather -- you just MADE my day!!
That is VERY generous of you to offer to do this thewave.gif
I will PM you right now!

And BTW, the phrase "polishing a turd" not only made me lol, it actually describes some of these photos perfectly :-)

Seriously, everyone has been so kind and supportive...big props to Sunbride too! She's already cropped a few of my pics on photoshop for me! VERY sweet...and above and beyond...

I am so sorry to hear about your experience but I want to applaud you for such a well written review - the photo's gave merit to your comments. I know that we will not use this vendor for my daughter's wedding and cannot thank you enough for preventing another disaster.

i also just wanted to post a heads up that Michael Maurus did contact me and wants this thread removed or he has threatened legal action against the OP and third parties (i don't think he understands internet laws very well).

 

when will vendors ever learn...threatening legal action for a review made against them is never the right approach. it just gives them more negative publicity.

Oh I'm having a big LOL at that right now! And by third parties does he mean anyone who posted in response to this thread? He just proven Simistar's point I believe. Good job Michael, good job smile116.gif So does this mean you have to take the thread down Tammy? sad.gif

no, i am protected from taking the thread down. he can file a suit if he wants. he isnt the first vendor to threaten a lawsuit against BDW. once they contact an attorney they usually drop any ideas of a suit.

 

i wish i could sue everyone that said something i didn't like...how awesome would that be?

 

"what did you say about my shoes?...bam, see you in court!"

Tammy - lol I'm so glad to hear that you won't be taking the thread down (honest reviews like this are invaluable!). No kidding, wouldn't that be fun? Just sue someone for saying something that hurt your feelings hehe.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
