This site has so many reviews and examples of photography by all of the major photographers in the Riviera Maya - so there should be plenty of info to help you make your decision.  You might even be able to ask a bride what price she was charged to see if there is room to negotiate!

 

Here are pictures of me in the sample of my dress taken at the dress shop .  Pardon the look of the bridal store - it is one of those places where you don't get a personal assistant, but it keeps the proces down.  If you are able to go to one of those on a week day you still get personal service while benefiting from the lower prices.  I am not a very ornate person, so this dress was perfect for me...

I have found a few photographers I like and who are available just trying to make the decision now, I am swaying towards Sascha Gluck.

 

You must be so thrilled to have your dress - I bet it is stunning. I am going shopping for mine next week!!

Your dress is gorgeous, Cgeris!!  Fits your body beautifully  -- looks like it was made for you.  You're fortunate that you won't have a hefty alterations bill!

 

Sooo.... I'm going for my BD photo shoot today.  I'm a bit nervous, never really been naked in front of strangers before hehe.  The photographer is male too so that doesnt help matters.  His female assistant is there the whole time for wardrobe and styling though. 

 

I'm really excited about the photographer I chose.  It's www.redchairphotography.com.  Not cheap, but I always say there's some things you don't skimp on.  I'll probably only do this once in my life, so I'd rather spend more and get the highest quality product.

 

Taking the plunge and doing a more risque shoot, some semi-nudes (think more Playboy vs. Maxim)  I'll be channeling my inner vixen today.  Wish me luck!!

LOL! I am sure you will be fine!  I prefer male photog, because the final audience of BD pics is a male! hahahaha..just drink some wine!

I would wait next spring to do mine, so I can have longer hair and more time to tone my body!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
