Affordable Photographer for Cancun Wedding!!!

Recommended Posts

I was looking at Octavio too. I don't want tons of pictures though and my resort charges $200 to bring in an outside photographer. I may have to go with the resort photographer or the cost will get crazy

You're lucky!!! Us Karisma brides pay an $800 outside vendor fee!

I wish I could like your comment haha but I really hate that fee :P. The resort photographers were so bad/had such exorbitant prices that we decided to bite the bullet and just get an outside phorographer

Nope- none were to our liking so we chose to bite the bullet with an outside photographer. We have a professional photographer travelling for our wedding and considered using her (she offered her service if we covered her travel) but in the end I didn't want to mix friendship with something that can't be fixed if the pics are what we wanted. Plus I wanted her to enjoy herself. We ended up choosing to go with bicoastal and I'm thrilled with what they offered us and their photos are gorgeous!

I think you are smart to not mix friendship with photos.  You woould hate hard feelings if things didn't turn out how you wanted.  I used to have a sister in law that was a hair dresser.  She always wanted to cut my hair but I always got out of it somehow.  I am super picky about my hair and didn't want hard feelings between us.

Resorts are set up or increasing what they call the outside vendor fee, It is sad people are not free to select what they want to have, photography as an art discipline is subjective against comparing, so It is sad when it is also impost, we offer some flexible alternatives for brides, not to avoid it but to help

I agree. I wish that if they're trying to force a vendor on you that at least be someone who offers a variety of good services at a reasonable price. Unfortunately it seems to me that it's just another way for resorts to make money. Pictures for a wedding are so important, people should be free to choose

I am getting married at Moon Palace in Cancun on March 27, 2015 and need help finding an affordable photographer. I have emailed many good photographers, but their average price is $3,500- $8,000 for 6 hrs of photography (not even including videography)! Does anyone know of a photographer/videographer company that is less than $3,500 for 6 hrs? Most photographers in the Midwest seem to be around $2,000 (ish) plus $1,500 videography for TEN hrs of service... I only need 6 hrs and am shocked at the average price in Mexico. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!

I'm not sure if you will be able to find much for cheaper unless you're willing to cut the hours. You can ask our photographer, Octavio Montes how much it would be for 6hrs. We thought his prices were really reasonable but I can't remember off the top of my head how much it was for his 6hrs package. $2000 for 10 hrs seems almost unreal! At least there's no way id be able to get that price locally. Photography and videography, aside from our trips, is the biggest chunk of our budget and I think that's usually the case for both DW or not. There are probably some photographers who charge less but then sometimes you might be compromising on quality. Make sure to check their work and make sure you like their work above their prices. Best or luck!

    • 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
