We had our wedding and reception at the same time, and the sun starts to go down by 5:30 p.m. We found that we had enough time for photos, but the photographer we brought in was fast (he's a news photographer during the day). You could always do shots before the wedding, or the next day if you don't have enough time.
I wouldn't recommend that on-site photographer, but you've probably already seen my comments about that. The photos we got are basically useless. Also, there are a few different photographers who run out of the same shop -- so perhaps one of the other photographers were better? We had the female, but I know there is a male, too.
Have fun -- it's a beautiful place to have a wedding!

There are a total of 38 of us coming out for 2 weeks beg 6th July and are now all getting really excited.
We have just booked the Palapa for the reception and Aroceli has proposed we have the wedding at 4pm and the reception at 6pm.
Do you think these times are good - does it allow time for photo's - and also is there still plenty of sunshine at that time of day or does it tend to cloud over (sorry seems a silly question but its one my daughter as asked).
Also we were planning on using the onsite photographer but after reading some of your threads - am a little worried. Does anyone have any good experiences with the onsite photographer????? or should we really look outside???
Be grateful for any advice/ info that anyone has.
