    I totally agree! I looked first off and they looked 'fine', but then with each additional set I looked at they were all identical and definitely not creative. I have checked out Sacha and another photographer who seemed reasonable. Pilar told me it would be an additional 900 bucks anyway to use the resort photographers and get more than just what the package included - so I feel like its worth it to spend more and get something I really like.

     

    Thanks!

      PLEASE HELP!

      I am about 6 weeks out from my wedding and trying to fill out the worksheet to send to Ana. I am so overwhelmed!!!! I still have people pending on coming to the wedding. Is this preliminary?

       

      My time frame looks like this...

       

      3:00 wedding on beach

      4:00 cocktails at Blue Beach Bar

      6:30 doors open to Ocen Front Terrace

      7:00 intro bride and groom and wedding party

      7:20 start serving dinner

       

      when do I do the cake and the toast?

       

      has anyone done a signature cocktail? if yes, what?

       

      Are they flexable with the dinner choices? some of the choices are a little weird!

       

      I thought I was ahead of the game!!!

        I agree that most were over $2000. We booked Gonzalo Nunez and we are paying $1700 for 6 hours of coverage. We will receive all of the rights to the pictures. His pictures are very good and he has been incredibly nice and answers emails very quickly.

         

        melissa80 - I want to do a signature drink but I have no idea what to do and what to call it! Keep me posted if you do one.

They look nice at first glance but once I started looking at other wedding photographer photos I then realized they weren't nearly as good. Some of the photographers whose prices were most reasonable include: Sascha Gluck, Dean Sanderson, Fine Art Studio and Ivan Luckie (a little more). Good luck!

          Are you also having dancing etc? It might just be me, but it seems like a long time between the cocktail party and dinner. What do you think about doing the toast toward the end of dinner and then cake after that? We are considering doing an orange mojito for our signature drink but really haven't given it too much though. Sorry I can't be more help!

            here is some of the things i asked ana about the dinner hope it helps...

             

            I asked the WC if we could give options for dinner, without doing a buffet this is what she said:

             

            Can we offer a choice of entres for the guests.. would that be an extra cost?

             

            You can offer their choice for dinner, for the main entr©e only 2 options, the additional cost is $ 30 usd per person; the other option is a head of time you can let me know how many people will eat one option and how many people will eat the other option only for the main course

             

            If i ask ahead of time what choice of entre they would prefer..would i still have to pay the additional 30?

             

            If you let me know in advance how many people will eat one option and how many people will eat the other option, there is not an additional charge, and only for the main course

             

            In terms of planning the menu, can i mix the choices? Take the starter from one and the dessert from the other? Can i use the dessert from the Eternity menu? Is there a cost to do this?

             

            Yes you are able to mix and match, but is must to be set menº

             

            Also i was wondering if there is a kids menu... if so what is it and what is the cost?

             

            The kid menu: fruit cocktail, cheese burger, chicken fingers, spaghetti, and ice cream, there is not an additional for this menu

             

            Also i have a friend or two that are vegitarian... is there a vegetarian option for the whole meal? cost?

             

            Yes there is an option for vegetarian menº, it is the same cost as a regular menu

             

            Hope this helps!

                      I'm using photos in cancun as well and am extermely excited about them. Have been very helpful and responsive. An all day package was $2000 with rights to the images. Coming from Chicago that price is almost unheard of. Please let us know how they do at your wedding in Dec. Thats so close im so jealous!
