Each photogs pictures look a bit differen and tell a diff story of the day. You have to find one who you want to tell your story. I think the more you look the more you will find things you like/don't like and then you can settle on someone specific.
Good luck!-and PS, you may want to consider flying someone in...in a lot of cases it may be cheaper than hiring a local photog and you may have pictures you're happier with.

I just took the discs to a local wedding photographer who printed up some of them on portrait paper with the chemicals (old fashioned way, no auto-printers). We even got a 20x24 and they all came out gorgeous! We are glad we did it this way and didn't feel rushed to choose anything specific.

so we ended up with a beautiful album, and a disc, but no prints to fram or hang because it was just TOO expensive on top of our already pricey package. we ended up paying close to $4k for just a digital flush mount album and about 300 pics on CD. ok yes we did have 2 photogs and the pics are beautiful. BUT we could have got so much more for so much less, with comparable quality images.
also dont rule out flying someone in from the states, you could save a LOT of $. just make sure your resort will allow it!

“It is unwise to pay too much but it’s unwise to pay too little.
When you pay too much you lose a little money that is all.
When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was not capable of doing the thing you bought it to do.
The common law of business prohibits paying a little and getting a lot.
It can’t be done.
If you deal with the lowest bidder it is well to add something for the risk you run.
And if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better!”
It is much better to cut in one or two other areas of your budget so that you can have really high quality images of your day, than it is to pay too little for your photographer, and then be disappointed in the end. Remember, these images will be passed on to your children and grandchildren.
