    Last-minute (less than two weeks) and already over-budget, I fired my photographer. I'm not a mean-spirited person, so it was hard for me. She was difficult to communicate with, couldn't make phone-call dates, and I was worried she'd mix up the times for my wedding since she struggled so much with times to pick up the phone. Maybe I was being overly critical or cautious, but I wasn't going to take a chance: 107 of our 120 invited guests would be counting on the photos to tell the story of our wedding day.

    So I emailed Sol Tamargo. She responded to my cry for help within minutes and in days, she booked a flight. Her contagious positive attitude and enthusiasm about her job allayed all my fears. We picked her up near the ferry dock in Cruz Bay, St. John, and it was probably less than an hour before we were taking photos with her. And they were incredible.

    The Day Before

    The wedding, the next day, was no less perfect in terms of photos. Sol managed to catch every smile and every moment exactly as it happened--or even better than it happened--and things none of the rest of us noticed until after we saw her picture of it. She really did an outstanding job...

    Our Wedding Day (& Evening!)

    ...and we couldn't be more grateful. Gracias, Sol!!
