    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...



    Wow you are super organised. Doesnt November seem like such a long time away I dont know how I'm going to be able to stand it. What date are you getting married? 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!
