    Just wondering if anyone has used the resort photographer at the Grand Sunset Princess, and if so, what did you think of the pictures? I'd love to see some if anyone has them to send. Let me know and I'll PM you my email address.
    Thanks so much :)

      I am getting married at the Princess in Feb. We might be using the resort photographer so I will keep you updated on that. If I find pic before you do I will post them. Good luck! Do you have the package prices? If not PM me andI will send them over

        Thanks SDSteph! I'll keep you posted on anything I find, as well. I have the 2010 photo package prices but not 2011. Do you have the new prices? I'm hoping they haven't changed or gone up :)

        My issue is that when I originally started planning my wedding it was going to be in my home town and I had started to book vendors - including my favorite photographer. When I decided to change to a destination wedding I had a friend who was coming to the wedding who could take pictures in Mexico for me and because of that I decided to keep my photographer here at home, but have him for the day of my AHR ($400 deposit is already paid). So long story short - the photographer friend can no longer come to the wedding and I can't afford to pay for a photographer and package here at home AND purchase another expensive photo package down in Mexcio. SOOO...I'm really hoping that the resort photos are nice :)

        Thanks for getting back to me! Keep me posted on your planning - I love to hear what everyone else is doing, especially at the same resort!!!

          The resort photog packages are not bad........there are many options for the choosing. I think the prices are going to stay the same and I only have the 2010 ones. If I get others I will send them your way.

            Not sure what it would cost you but were getting married a few days after you, our photogs that are coming may be able to give you a good rate cause they will already be in the area? Their info is in my sig. and they are so great! We are getting married at the barcelo but your hotel isnt too far right?
            Good luck with your planning!

              Hi Ashley,
              Thanks for the message and the info. I'm not sure how far our resorts are from each other but I'm going to check out a map as soon as I'm done typing here. The resort packages I'm looking at are between $500 and $800 for ceremony and beach pictures. Do you mind me asking what your photographers are charging? I'm definitely interested in looking into them as an option and depending on the price, it could work :) I just looked at their site, and you're right, their pictures are beautiful! Photos are my biggest priority (its kind of my hobby, so I really love nice pictures) and I wish I could spend the money on my photographer here at home, and a great photographer down south... Oh well... I'm sure it will all work out even if I end up going with the resort's packages.
              Thanks again for your suggestion. I'm going to email your photographer and see what they say. I'll keep you posted!
              How is your planning coming along?
              Kristy

                We are getting a ton of photography done so ours would be more im sure but just ask them what they would charge you for what you want and im sure its going to be a great deal. I did a ton of research before booking them, im not from where they're from either but their work is great and its 2 photogs for waaaay less than anywhere else ive been!

                Hope they can help you out!

                    We used www.claudiaphoto.com (prices are on her site (abt $1600 starting)) but had the pleasure of having Gonzalo Nunez helping out and he is quite a bit more affordable and easy to contact http://www.nunezgonzalo.com

                      Hi did you end up using the resort photographer? What did you think of their work and would you recommend them?
