    I'm looking for a great photographer with affordable packages in Mayan Riviera area. If any past brides could recommend one they have worked with recently, I'd really appreciate it! We'd like some one with a photo journalist style and attention to details. Preferably a package price for 4-5 hours or more if prices are reasonable. Thanks!

      Don't forget to check out the vendor market place too. There are lots of photographers on there who have samples of work and some list packages as well. You might also find either there or in another bride's siggy a photographer share, where a photographer is flying in around your date and will work a package with little or no travel fees.

        We used Michelle Kauntz from Captured Soul Photography in Kitchener. We brought her with us but found that her prices for the whole week were comparible to the local photographers for 5 hours!

        Here is her website. I loved Michelle`s work and would highly recommend her!

            Cecilia Dumas! I was just married 7.23.10 and already have my prints and the slide show.  She was amazing, and her prices were very reasonable for the packages that I saw when researching.

              i just got married 3 weeks ago and flew in my photographer but he was still cheaper then had I gotten someone in Mexico.  He has a photo journalist feel and was very very cool and AFFORABLE. i mean almost a steal for me. 

              if you want email me Julie.sanchez@gmail.com

              and I'll send you a handful of my pictures that i have, he not only charged me great price but took pictures for the rehearsal dinner, the wedding from the moment we got ready and trashed the dress the next day.


              I truly liked him and would work with him again for future pictures, maybe kids or something.

              much cheaper then any photopher I found anywhere else.

                I'm getting married in the Riviera in Dec. 2010 and we are going to use Adrian Herrera.  His photos are amazing and they have really awesome prices on packages. They have been really easy to work with so far.

                  thinking on affordable, we all got to check apple vs apple, so affordable in photography is complicated, a lot of photographer are more marketing than what they do and offer, one advice is to do a bidding tabulator with the pros and cons of each of the photographers you found, be careful!!! affordable may mean leave your photography in the hands of no one, photography it is not only what you see, most of it is what you don't see!,  good luck on your search!

                    If you love the Del Sol style, but would prefer a more economical choice. Matt, Owner of Del Sol apparently started another company under the Del Sol umbrella called La Luna.


                    Their website is located HERE -> http://www.lalunaphotographers.com/


                    You should take a look; I believe some of the pictures posted on the website are of Best Destination Wedding Brides. I believe La Luna starts around $400/p.h.

                    Like Skadow mentioned I would def check out La Luna, I was one of the winners for the contest Del Sol ran and got to work with all 3 of the photographers from La Luna and they were all so friendly and gave use some amazing pictures.  Here's the slideshow they put together for us!
