    Hi! I'm planning on getting married in July 2011 at Azul Beach Hotel in Rivera Maya. I'm wondering about a photographer that you could recommend. I love the work of Juan Carlos Tapia but not sure about the costs to fly him in from Los Cabo unless someone is willing to split the cost of travel? Does anyone have other recommendations of a great photographer?

    This is most crucial point of the events as alot of our extended family will not be able to come with us...the pictures capturing the event is very important.

    Any recommendations?

      i have a bunch in the states that I could recommend. I just went through this process and it was so hard to pick.

      Ball n' Chain Photography in Raleigh, NC
      Gwendolyn Tundermann in Jacksonville (who we picked)
      Ivan Luckie in Mx (on this board)
      Studio B Photography in Atlanta
      Melissa Green in Salt Lake City (on this board)

      There are so many on the board. Just depends what style you are looking for, budget and package.

      Good luck!

      Okay, Juan is AMAZING!!! So if you can swing it to fly him in, I'd totally do that. You can also add something to your signature of your posts asking if anyone else would like to share the costs of his services with you.
      And if that won't work, there are a ton of photographers on this forum who would be willing to help you out.

      Good luck!

        Check out Samuel Luna. He's great at what he does and is very reasonable!

            Just personal preference...but I'm not the biggest Juan fan. While I do think his work is really good...I don't think it measures up to his price. And you have to wait like 4-6 MONTHS for your pictures after the wedding.
            I LOVED my photographers: del Sol Photography
            they are AWESOME (people and photographers)!!!! and local to RM.

              Unfortunately de Sol has been "banned" from Karisma properties according to the wedding planner.

              juan carlos is great and did my wedding..

              karisma is really not great with their outside vendor policy so your photog may have to stay a couple of nights at the resort.

              what about:

              elizabeth medina
              victor herrera
              ivan luckie
              sasha gluck

              they are vendors on the forum and work in that area...you can click the button to see more of their work,
