      What are the photographers you used that have $1800 packages? Dying to know. Even if you paid for them to travel.
      I haven't been able to find any photographer that can come in any less than $3000 for a package with 5+ hours.
      I was going to suck it up and pay the $3500, but I really wish I could get more for my money.

        We are hiring Sascha Gluck and his 4 hour package is $1300. He is amazing. Check out his website at cancunphotos.net

        For $3500, you should be able to get WAY more!!!
        No idea which Palladium you're going to... and travel prices for 2011 aren't out yet. But it looks like it'd cost less than $1500 for two people to fly and stay at any of the Palladium resorts (according to 2010 prices).

        You should definitely be able to find a photographer who will give you full day coverage of your wedding plus a trash the dress for $3-3,500.

        Definitely start with the photographers on this site. Send them an email, check out their work. Never hurts to ask! :)

          +1 I agree. although most prices are not out yet for 2011 you can find people (hint) who can knock your socks off for the whole day and a trash the dress for $1500is with DVD of images and travel fees paid.
          It can happen!!

            i'm paying just over 3K for 2 photographers, 8 hour wedding shoot plus TTD shoot plus 50 image wedding album plus 250 image DVD photo show - pkus a lot more - SunGold with Paula and Damian - the biggest splurge in my budget was photography- I love pictures and getting my picture taken! I fell in love with their pictures as soon as I saw them and had to have them as my photographers!

              Photography is extremely important to us, so we wanted someone with a great eye. We are paying $2500 for 2 photographers (husband and wife team) to fly down and shoot our wedding and a couple other wedding related events. We basically paid for their travel/food/drinks/stay/etc, so I doubt they are making any money unfortunately- but hey, free vacation!

              LOL. Unless they extended their vacation, shooting a destination wedding is the furthest thing from a vacation!!
              This is a very common misconception. You see, we are there for our job. We take it very seriously. Yes, we like to have fun, but there really isn't much time.
              here was my last travel experience
              4:30 am - Leave for airport
              5:00 am - get to airport... find out my flight got delayed. Awesome.
              9:30 am - finally leave MKE airport.
              Missed my connection. Lovely airline lady REMOVED me from the next flight (I had booked both to be safe). Awesome again.
              Next flight, 5:50 pm
              Delayed until 6:45 pm
              Get on plane. Sit in plane until 8:30 pm. Finally leave ATL airport.
              Arrive in Cancun. Get into transfer van. Get into car accident. Awesome yet again.
              Arrive at hotel at 1:30 am.
              Get to my room, get everything ready for the next day, go to sleep at 2:30 am
              Wake up at 6:30 am. Run around the resort like a crazy woman so I know where to take photos.
              8:30 eat breakfast
              9:30 get back to the room. Pack my bag and double check I have everything. Leave to start photographing their wedding.
              10:30 pm. Done. BUT... now I have to back up all the images because you certainly don't want anything to happen to them. And having the images backed up is essential!
              1:30 am. FINALLY DONE! Good night! :)
              5:30 am GOOD MORNING!! Time for trash the dress!!!
              8:30 am breakfast
              10:00 am leave for airport

              So... it's not a vacation. But let me tell you, photographing destination weddings is my passion. It's the best!! And I'm sure many other photographers agree. We don't do it because we make a fortune. We don't do it for a free vacation. We do it because we love it, and we love capturing people on the happiest day in their lives!

                I plan to use SunGold as well. I haven't decided on the package yet. But definitely plan to slurge with the photos. Years from now.. that's what we'll have to remember...

                  Make sure you book your date if you want to get Paula and Damian - their dates get booked very quickly and on a first come first served basis on their website.
