    Hi Everyone,

    I used this forum and all your opinions so much while I was planning my wedding, so now that I’m done I want to return the favour and finally post some reviews!! I was so impressed with our photographers that I will start off with them.

    We used Bella Stella (Julie Lepage and her husband Chris). I had heard good things from the girls on here who had done boudoir photos with Julie who is based out of Ottawa, Ontario, and I loved her portfolio so after a couple emails back and forth (we live about 6 hours away) we decided to bring her down to Mexico with us. I really can’t say enough wonderful things about Julie and Chris. They were SO much fun to work with, and while I’m sure I’m biased I LOVE our pictures!! I hate being in front of a camera and am infamous for the ‘awkward smile’ but Julie and Chris made us feel completely comfortable and I think it shows in the pics. They came up with great shoot locations and took full advantage of all our resort had to offer for backgrounds (from jungle to beach). We would see them out every day with their cameras scouting and when our wedding day came they were very well organized moving us quickly from spot to spot. Our package came with the full wedding day (they were with us about 9-10 hours) and a choice or two other shoots (boudoir, engagement, trash the dress etc)- we chose to give one shoot to my parents and their siblings as they are rarely all together in one spot and used the other for a trash the dress. The trash the dress session was awesome, we had a great time and love the pictures that came out of it. I also have to say as I know many of us are on a budget that I thought they were amazingly reasonable for what you get. Their package details are at: http://www.bellastel...destination.pdf.

    Please PM me if you have any questions at all about Julie and Chris, I would highly recommend them and have to many of my girlfriends getting married next year. I seem to be technologically challenged and can't post pictures- I think maybe they're too big (Mb instead of Kb) but if anyone has any ideas let me know, or if you want to see pictures pm me and I can give you the link to my photobucket account.

    Happy planning!!!

      Julie and Chris are our photographers for our wedding in April - they did our engagement shoot and were GREAT for it, too - so glad that your DW shoots turned out great (I've seen a couple of your pics on her blog) since you were her first DW!!

      21 people + Bride & Groom booked!!
