    I am almost positive that my FI and I will be getting married at the Laguna Azul the beginning of July. I am wondering if there are any other Varadero brides getting married during that time that would like to possibly share a photographer?!?

      Hi, I'm just waiting to confirm dates with Yahimara but we are getting married the beginning of July too. I'm still in the process of searching out a photographer but would be willing to split the costs etc.
      Let me know!

        I am new to the DW world and just curious what it looks like when brides 'split the cost' of a wedding photographer? Is the wedding on the same day and the photographer shoots both weddings? Do ya'll line up a wedding a day after, like one on a Friday and one on a Saturday? Do ya'll have it to different weekends, one on Saturday and then the other 7 days later? I have just seen it mentioned a couple of times and since I am a photographer who hasn't shot a DW yet I didn't know what that would look like for me.

          I'm not quite sure how it works either but would be interested to hear from anyone who has done that or is planning on it. Barrierunner: We have been quoted for departure on July 4th. Is that about when you were going as well? Yahamira said she had something available on July 6th for a wedding at 4 but I'm not quite sure how long you have to be in Cuba before you can get married. 2 or 3 days??

            I am interested in learning as well for the future. I mean coming from the stance of the photographer I wouldn't mind 2 brides going in together to cover travel. My only concern is making sure I give both brides the attention they deserve. I am the type of photographer that spends 8 or more hours with a bride so the weddings would have to be on different days. Just curious how that all works out.

            Look forward to learning.

              Hi, my date is set. We're getting married on July 7th at 4pm. Yes you have to be in Cuba for 3 working days (this doesn't include the weekends) before you get married. We are thinking of going for 10 days, so we would leave earlier then our guests and enjoy a few days alone before the chaos begins LOL.
              I have a friend in Toronto that is a photographer. He hasn't ventured into Destination Weddings as of yet, but I was thinking of asking him what he would charge if he is interested. Let me know if this interests you. He is doing my engagement photos next weekend, so I can find out more when I see him. :-)

                Congrats on setting an official date and time!!

                I have been told (or read, don't remember where. I think it may have been the first TA I saw) that you have to be in Cuba 3 calendar days, meaning that week-ends would count. Don't know who to believe anymore...
