    As much as my wedding day was perfect and I really hate to have any compliants, if there was one thing I would say I was disappointed in was the photography. After receiving our pictures, almost a month after the wedding, my husband looked at me was like, wow, some of the pictures our guests took were so much better than the "professional" ones. So if you have the option to go with someone else, I would make the suggestion to do so and I would say the $300 fee to bring in someone from the outside would be worth it. Here's a few pictures from our day. These were a few of our favorties, unfortunately, there just were not that many that ended up in the favorite category.

    We had our photos back from Photoshoots Vallarta when we arrived home from our honeymoon. Approx 1 week after the wedding. Pierre also had excellent communication.

      Photoshoots Vallarta 100%!  Eva and Pierre took care of us all day and Eva was also very helpful in translating for the hair dressers.   Here are a couple of pics from our day...also they adjusted the price for us because we didn't want the engagement/trash the dress session.  And we received all of our pics within a week!!!

        Thank you so much brides for all the helpful feedback... I'm definitely leaning towards photoshoots Vallarta! You all look gorgeous in your pics on your wedding day! ;)

          I plan on bringing my own fire sky lanterns & sparklers... Did anyone have a hard time flying with them? I also want to give my fianc© a valuable gift on our wedding day but I've read some reviews about having a hard time bringing things back thru customs? Anybody experience this?

            Lala your pics are amazing!! Did you get the Andale package? Are you having a 2nd shooter? I'm so torn on whether or not a 2nd shooter is necessary. : /

              Lianne, I see you used petals for your ceremony decor on the aisle... Do you recall how many bags you purchased for $25ea. I'm confused as to how many I'll need. I'm having 50 guests & I want to make petal cones for them to toss on us but also want to use them predominantly on the aisle & on all my dinner tables. ( I'm choosing not to go with floral centerpieces because although beautiful, they seem like a waste since dinner is only an hour.) I ordered 25 bags on my contract $500 bucks in petals... Eeekk!! But I'm happy our deposit has been made & our date is set for Saturday 11/15/2014 yayyyy!!:D

                Also, how was the food?? I've been hoping somebody would post pics of the food! =) And what types of mixed drinks did they offer? Dennise mentioned a rum punch & sangria...I would like to make a bride & groom signature drink! =) Your pics are just too faBulous! Can't stop looking at them all!

                  I brought the sky lanterns in my checked baggage and had no problems.  I called the airline in advance to make sure. So maybe call your airline to double check.

                    One bag...that's all they said I needed for the aisle.  I also didn't do floral centerpieces I just used what was free!  It still turned out really nice. I also asked for hanging candle lights above the dinner tables which was also free.  See pic below.
