    Not necessarily. my photogs paid their own travel. you can PM me if you want specific details.

      what would i do without you all!?!?!?

      So, Juan is booked. I only started with Juan and Leigh becasue everyone talked about them. Bradley is available and I love Janet's pictures AND they are at the same place - cabo surf so I am leaning toward him but now i have a few more to check out! thanks for everyone's suggestions!

      ps. is it safe to assume most of us are at work and on this website ALL day?!?!LOL

        I am also using Manuel Burgoin, since our WC highly recommended him. I like the way his pics look online...but make sure you whatever photog you get, you have a contract that it will actually be that photographer and not an assistant. I have heard of that happening when you arrange the services yourself as opposed to a WC doing it.

          that's what we did - look at all of your options! i made a list and decided who we liked, then looked at the cost and our budget. i used Leigh, and her travel costs were built into the package price. i know her pricing has changed since i booked her, so not sure she still does that. here's a good list to start with: http://bestdestinati....ographers.html

          this isn't all of them - but it's a decent list to start with!

              Hey Acacia - here's a link to my photos if you can't find the post Kodakgallery.com Sign in to Kodakgallery.com ...also got married at Cabo Surf & used Bradley. (Janet - remember when you were the only one that had gotten married there?!)

              We loved Bradley! So professional, fun, & just all around great.

                Not to confuse you anymore. There is also Francisco Estrada, Gilda Badillo, and Jose Lima (sp) from Cabo.

                I used Gina DeContii of Imaginativestudios.com It was an overall better value since I have photography for 2 days. Never be intimidated by the pricing on the sites. Just ask not a special quote. It's great for their portofolio and 3/4 days in Cabo can be 1000. each depending upon accommodations.

                  every time i see the title of this thread i cringe. i mean, what's wrong with Leigh and Juan!? lol the title of the thread makes it seem like we should avoid hiring these two ... poor things. they're both members of this forum, and are probably wondering what they did wrong!

                    oh no, we love leigh and juan!!!!!! I think it's more just to have a better sense of all the options, especially if Leigh and Juan aren't in your budget. I know they weren't in mine
