    I've been researching photographers/videographers lately and have come across Playa weddings. I have been in contact with Rachel Schrank and she seems awesome! Unfortunately, I haven't found a lot of information on BDW forum about their work.

    I was just wondering if anyone could share their experience with Playa weddings. I'd especially like to hear more about their photography. Any info would be great!!

    Thanks in advance!

      Good question! I was wondering the same thing myself! I'm getting married at the Sando's Playacar and am just in the process of trying to find a photographer, so I'll be curious to hear what feedback you get!

        They do amazing work. I will do a search for you, but Paul is actually a member of the forum. They have done videography work for TONS of the BDW girls. I will search I'm positive there is some stuff on here

            I know MarieSam just used Paul for videography at her recent wedding but she just got home so she'll have a review in weeks to come.

            I can't think off the top of my head who's used them for photography

              Thank you so much for searching for me!! I really appreciate your help! It seems like there is a lot of info on their videography but not so much about photography.

              I've been looking at Claudia and Mike Cantrell also, but Playa Weddings are a little bit cheaper. I just want to figure out which is the best value. We may get to meet with them when we visit in a few months so maybe that will help out.

                  I used Mike from Claudia's team and I will tell you this, my husband told me not to spend the money on a video=we fought about it and in the end I won the arguement. We got the video back a few weeks ago and he told me that he was really happy that I got Mike because the video was so amazing. I love the video and I have probably watched it 10 times. I actually watched it last week and each time I am blown away at how great he was.

                    Thanks for the info on Mike. Did you get the Gold or Platinum package?

                    I like that with Playa Weddings you get so much footage/coverage included the photo/video package.

                    From Claudia's price list it was hard to tell how much you actually got with your video. I basically would like the raw video footage, an edit of the ceremony, and then an edit of the entire event. I couldn't tell if that was part of the Gold Package or if you would have to pay more for the Platinum.

                    Playa Weddings just seems so clear about their pricing and it includes so much. Ahh decisions, decisions!!!

                      Hello, I'm Paul from PlayaWeddings. Rachel and I started shooting wedding videos in Denver 6 years ago. We shot for two years together before I moved to Playa del Carmen. I've been here 4+ years making wedding videos. A little over a year ago Rachel came and joined me and we got married. We purchased camera equipment and Rachel moved from video to stills and began learning the cameras. At the end of last season we shot our first photo/video wedding, Kelly and Mike. You can see the photos on our site. Then we left for a summer long trip through Europe and shot a ton of photos. This past season has been our first full season of offering both photo and video. The response to our photo/video package has been great. We've done a few for BDW members but no reviews posted yet.

                      We're upgrading all of our photo equipment for next season to the Canon 5D M2 with premium lenses. Our prices have gone up a bit for next season to reflect the upgrade in quality. We are delivering everything in HD on Blu-Ray disc. The resolution is fantastic on a large screen.

                      We are still booking at last years prices for next season for our current leads. We'd be happy to extend that to BDW members here through August. Just let us know when you write.
