    just under $3000 for someone local in the MR, w-day coverage, TTD + e-session. no album but disc of all images.

    just be sure the style of photography is what the 2 of you are looking for, look at lots of website and ask lots of questions!

    good luck!

      Does anyone have any recommendations for a photographer from the states that would be willing to do a destination wedding for the cost of a week in Mexico??

        We're paying about $4,500 for 8 hours of coverage, a TTD session (no time or location limit), and a disc of all the photos. It was more than I had budgeted for, but my FI had his heart set on this particular photographer. I figure if he wants to put us over budget, it's fine by me since he's paying for it, lol.

            We're trying to keep it to 2K. I have this photographer that I love and really want to use her however she costs to much money in addition to the fact that we would have to pay for all of her expenses to get to the destination. So to keep in budget we are using who we can afford.
            BDW the best place for my TYPE A personality!

                  I am using Gwendolyn Tundermann from Jacksonville, FL. It is a husband/wife team and she is so great! Easy to talk to and responds very quickly.

                    Hang in there, don't give up - something will come through! does your resort offer free photography with a package? Anyone in your group able to be the designated photographer?

                    Also, maybe someone on BDW will fly a photog down during the same time as your wedding and you can share cost.

                    At one of the local bridal shows I met a photog that charges based on one of his packages (starting $1000s?). He does not charge for travel just accomodations. So you would only need to pay for his hotel stay (per him for 1-2 days unless you needed him longer). I'll see if I can find the information/web site etc. and repost.

                    You know it would be nice the BDW photogs would offer shared cost for wedding at the same location around the same time. I know they are busy because based on some of the photos they are some of the best I've seen. But if they are going to be in Cancun Sat/Sun for one couple why not offer travel/accomodation share for another couple before or after. Well, maybe they do and I just have not seen it.

                      My wedding photographer was absolutely wonderful and well priced. I believe we spent around $2200, we got a disk of all the photos with the printing rights, 2 days of shooting (full day wedding then TTD the next day), and that included their flight and hotel stay.

                      Here's some of my photos on facebook:

                      I can't guarantee her prices are the same now but worth checking out!
