regarding photographer, either local or flight in, the most important and essential anyone should look for in a photographer it is the photo style, do not try to push a photographer to change his/her pure style or photos may turn out something else you want, so my recommendation are:

-Research for a photographer and compare their style, packages, prices (but ina way that which one gives you the best for the price)
-Select some local and some to flight in (if the budget is not a problem basically will choose by style)
-Then if price is a problem eliminate the ones over your budget

Have in mind that nothing is better than a couple of good photos, at the end video is limited by time and one image may have 1,000 words, think twice everything is important but nothing lasts more than photos, even memories.

One more thing, photography is an art and it is not easy to compare photographer vs photographer, I would say almost impossible but you can choose the best that fits your style.

    Well put. Also make sure you and your photographer mesh. It should be someone you're comfortable with. I always recommend an in person consult with my brides or a telephone consult.

    Great photos Maura! I didn't see you post your slideshow from Moon Palace Ryan & Angela on Vimeo Hopefully this helps out some brides :-)

      Good Luck! I would recomend to search more for an outside photographer, or at least ask for your photographer's name and you got to see the pictures taken by him, this is at least that you all brides must do, at the end the only memories are the photos, more than video because video vs photo is like compare a book vs the book's movie.

        Hi Denine,

        I have shot a wedding at the moon Palace. What best to give you an idea of the location than have a look at a photo-gallery on my blog: Wedding at the Moon Palace .
        I hope that will give you ideas for your own wedding.

          I think the prices are higher than you'd pay here in the uk but if you were getting married here you probably wouldn't have them over 2 days. It's a lot of money but its also a long way to go not to have a lot of top quality photos to capture the day

            My daughter was just married at Aventura Spa Palace. Her resort photographer was David Pena. He was excellant and very creative! Moon Palace uses him also. Here are a few of my daughters photos:

              Maura,  I absolutely love the photos.  We considered doing the wedding here in Chicago, but because of funds we decided to go to MP.  I LOVE how vibrant the colors look!

                Thanks for sharing your photos! I am still debating using MP photographers but I hear they are using Smilemarket by Kodak so any upcoming brides, please post your photos. Thanks!

                I was going to use Smilemarket for my photos, but they were too expensive even with the usage of the vacation dollars, plus they were very inflexible.  We are having a small wedding with only 4 guests and no reception and cocktail hour.  In order for us to have approximately 3 hours photo time plus a CD with all photographs we would have to pay $1,240 in which only $450 of that was covered by vacation dollars.  To me that was way to expensive for the small, simple wedding I was having.  Being that it was at the beginning of December when I decided not to use the resort photographer, I had to find a photographer quickly who was available.  We settled on David Pena.  I liked his style and he was available.  I plan on posting pics and reviews when I get back.

                Thank you for the input!  We are going to have at least 50 guests attend. I am scared to book an outside photographer and they don't show up or something happens and I am out a photographer for my wedding. Yikes.
