Hey.

I wanted to find out if anyone has used the photographer MP provides and if so were you pleased?

Is anyone hiring an outside vendor?

I'm hiring an outside vendor. I've heard mixed reviews and I can't seem to find any particular information on who the resort uses. The unforunate thing, is if you choose to get an outside vendor, the hotel has a "no outside vendors" policy. The only way to bypass this is to book your photographer a hotel room for the night.

I too am hiring an outside vendor, and have booked a room night for them. It does end up costing a small fortune...however I don't want to look at my wedding photos and think, which are the pictures the professional photographer took and which did my guests take...ya know what i mean?

that's sad for some hotels to do that. =(

 

that actually kills the opportunity for brides to get more creative images..especially for the BIG SPECIAL DAY of once life.

Bride from Scotland - who did you hire? I just recieved an email from Del So that they no longer accept bookings at MP! sad.gif

I don't mind paying a little more for a photographer I love and can see the wrok they've done. I have not come across any photo's from a MP photographer.

I hired Sascha Gluck...love his work, and the pictures are the most important to me.

 

If you go to the review section...many MP brides have used the resort photographer. Many say that the best is David Pena and request him.

 

Also, read MP 2008/2009 brides thread. It is VERY lengthy and there is plenty of photographer talk there

I'm planning to bring in a photographer also as a "guest." I've seen other brides on here put up posts/requests to share a photographer. I think that this is a great idea, but the challenge is finding another bride whose wedding day is the same as yours. wacko.gif

Initially I was just going to go with the Moon Palace photographer but now once I've had a think about it I think I want an outside vendor after looking at some websites- now the choice ofwhich one! Also being as our wedding package already includes a photo package am I able to have both? (Does that sound greedy?) Currently we just have the basic photography package? I understand we have to pay for a night for the photographer also can they come in on a day pass?

 

Thanks for your help as ever!

Maura - from this forum - just photographed a wedding at the Moon Palace. The bride wanted, not only professional photos, but also photos from more than just one day (TTD).

But you could probably contact her and ask her about the requirements to photograph there. I know she stayed, but they might require more than one night. You should send her a message to verify.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
