    I just seen Natalie and Lances TTD slideshow and I love it. Now I want to do this. How much extra does this usually cost for them to photograph this. And I really love Juan Carlos Tapia but he really isn't in our budget for our wedding...do you know if we could just get him to do the TTD session and how much it would be. Do you usually do this a day after?? And do you buy another dress for this then?? Sorry i'm asking 20 questions here.

      I did my TTD pictures the day after my wedding...we also did it with a different photographer.

      Wedding photographer was Tomas Barron
      TTD pictures was with Manuel Burgoin

      We did the TTD pictures for a little over one hour and he charged us $500
      We get all the photos and 50 print outs...
      I'm still waiting for ours....We can't wait!!!!

      I also used my wedding dress....did not buy another dress....it did not damage my dress at all, made it cleaner actually LOL

        Have you booked your photographer?? Maybe you could work it into the package. I'm wondering if you could get a bit of a deal if the photographer has never done a TTD before? I'm honestly not sure

          Thanks ladies for the info. I just emailed Juan to see what he charges. I really love his work and since we can't have him for the wedding maybe we can at least have him for the TTD. Hopefully. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

          carolena,
          i agree with courtney that you should try to work it into a package.

          with juan having to travel it will be an expensive TTD session if you are getting married in cancun.

          waht about leigh, sol, or elizabeth medina?

            I would definitely try and work it into the package you are getting with your photographer. I build my packages so that it saves you money over picking things ala carte. So, for me a TTD session might be $600 ala carte but I can put it in a package for either less or maybe slightly more BUT with another item added into the package free as well. make sense?

            WIth Jessalyn's TTD session, it was something that we added in but instead of paying for that we worked it out with an extra night or so at the resort. So, something like that might be an option as well.

            Here's one from Jessalyn's. I have another TTD tomorrow so I'll post those later.

                yay! my TTD pic again....sorry, I love seeing it...I'm so vein.

                Anyway, Jonathan already mentioned how we arrange for the TTD session. In my limited experience (and I think this works for most photogs...but, I'm not sure) a DW photographer will generally work with you on adding extra shoots, or creating custom packages etc.....especially since they are already there to shoot your wedding. As Jonathan mentioned my TTD session was negotiated for an extra night at the resort. so worth it IMO. :)

                BTW, I used my actual wedding dress the day after my wedding and it dried nicely without any stains...I actually think the dress got a little cleaner from the TTD session ...it was really dirty from the wedding.

                Good luck!

                  As a photographer, I totally agree! It can always be worked out with your photographer - all you have to do is ask.

                    I agree with everyone else, try to work it in. Especially if you're doing it the morning after - your photographer will still be close by. That's what I did and my photographer was actually really excited about doing it (maybe bc it's a little different, more fun, less stress...) and it wasn't that hard to add it in at a reasonable price.
