    Hey! We're date & resort twins!!! Check out this thread for The Royal but you might want to skip towards the end bc there's A LOT of pages
    Hi everyone- I read this thread last week and decided to check out Victor. His prices are great and so are the pictures. Too bad we can't find anyone that has used him yet. He's sending over the contract in the morning. I'm so excited to finally have made a decision!!
    Yay! At least we'll be able to help out future brides on here w/pics and reviews!

      Weird - I sent an inquiry mid January , all 3 were booked. I just sent another email and....voila ADRIAN IS AVAILABLE :)

      Their rates went up slightly but they are still the best priced and the quality is great. I'm 99% sure I'll be booking him . Phew....I was really starting to stress about this .

        Congrats!! One more thing off the checklist, huh! For some reason, once I booked the photog I started to relax about everything else.

        Now if I could only get everyone to book their trips...haha!

          Hello everyone,
          I've emailed Victor to get some information. I would like to know what type of deposit is required to book him? Thanks in advance for any help!

            Hello ladies,
            I wanted to let you know the latest. Initially I had contacted Victora Herrera (Adrian or Sara) for photography. I was sent an email indicating that all 3 were busy. About 2 weeks ago, I sent an email re-inquiring. To my surprise, Adrian was available. After corresponding with him, my contract was in the works, arranging a hotel room, confirming payment arrangements, confirming wedding details.....I received an email yesterday telling me he wasn't available.

            WTF?!! Am I upset, yes - this is a super stress for me. However, if it's indicative of their service, I'm really not interested in using them anyway. I'd be worried whether or not they would show up for my wedding .

            Good luck !!

              You have to put down 50% (plus 5% if you pay though PayPal). He'll send you the contract to sign. You might have to request his signed copy back, but he sent it w/in a day w/apologizes for not sending it sooner.

              I completely understand where you're coming from w/being upset, but you hadn't paid or signed a contract, yet, so I don't see how you can assume they might not show for the actual wedding. There was obviously a mix up somewhere, which totally sucks but stuff like that happens sometimes. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you, but that kinda sucks for you to come on here and scare other brides who have already booked him. I haven't had my wedding or pics done, yet, and will write a review (whether good or bad) after, but every communication I've had up to this point has been very professional and kind.

              I wish you lots of luck in finding a photog for your date in your price range!! I know that is a super stressful thing. I can't vouch for this guy from experience, but he contacted me via email after finding me on this forum about doing discounts for brides jared@jaredrey.com (Jared Rey Blog-site | Dallas Wedding Photographer). Not sure what all his details/prices are, but his pics looked pretty!

                  Hello All - I too have booked Victor for my upcoming wedding in October 2010. Although there was some initial concern surrounding the lack of feedback on him/his services, he has been incredibly responsive to my emails and a pleasure to correspond with. If I happen to come across any feedback on his work, I will be sure to post it to this thread.

                    Contract or not - if he confirmed he was available and then 7 days later looks at the calendar and sees otherwise....who's to say that it can't happen even if I did sign the contract. I'm sure it was an oversight but it was just an up and down (first they weren't available, then they were, not they're not) of emotions. Their pictures are great - and for those that have/will be booking, I'm sure you'll be impressed.

                      I can't wait for people to start putting up reviews of them. I have also booked Adrian for my wedding day. I did all of my correspondence with Victor. He is also willing to negotiate on the deposit. I thought the 50% was pretty steep up front, then he wanted full payment 5 days before the wedding. I paid 30% up front and am paying the balance on the wedding day. I really like their photos, so I hope they turn out good for everyone!
