    Hi girls

    Has anyone used Caribe photography? Caribephoto

    They are the approved photogs for the resort where I am getting married, but I've really struggled to find much info on here about feedback.

    I would really, ReALLY appreciate it if someone would be able to let me know their views.

    Many thanks,

    Katie.

          Hey Katie. I hired Caribe 2 days before I left for my wedding, but I hired him for videography, not photography so I can't say what the quality of his photos are. In terms of the video, meh, it wasn't that important to me, I just wanted something to bring home to my family that didn't make it to the wedding. He was ok I guess. I barely spoke to him. He showed up, did what he had to do and left lol. I met him a few days later and he gave me the video. The quality wasn't fantastic - I couldn't even hear my ceremony music in it, but like I said I wasn't too concerned. Sorry I can't be of more help

            Who did you use for photography? I believe AS has changed their rules for 2010 and are only allowing two photographers, Caribe and Matias Canos so I'm trying to find out info on both of them.

              I used Moments that Matter Photography. They are members of the forum. They were the best wedding decision I made by far! Yes, I believe Caribe and Matias are the only ones that the $500 fee doesn't apply to.

                  Thanks Crista-Lee!
                  When I booked MTM they were just starting off in RM, and they had a deal going on where they covered the $500 fee for me but I had to purchase their full package. I don't think they do this anymore. They were actually the only photog that I found that would cover the fee so I guess I just lucked out big time on the timing.

                    I think AS changed the rules for 2010 and they don't even allow you to pay the $500 outside vendors fee anymore. I was told that the only photographers allowed were Caribe and Matias Canos. Caribe has reasonable prices but I'm not sure if they're reasonable only because the photography is mediocre.
