Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Has anyone use Arrecife Studios at the Gran Bahia Principe in the Mayan Riviera?  I've read a lot of negative reviews about them and am getting nervous.

ARRECIFE STUDIO MEXICO

 

It has their e-mail and some of the brides as well.

 

I'm getting married at GBP in December. I hope everything with your planning goes well.

Good luck! :)

I got the 10 photos included in our wedding package from them.

 

We had another photographer & friends/family taking photos.  There photos were ok...I just didn't enjoy the 'angle' they were shooting at.  It gave us both double & triple chins.

 

I would suggest meeting with them when you get to the resort and discuss what you would like..and don't before the ceremony.

be careful, after some years only the photography will be the only thing that will last, leaving pictures in a bad vendor hands is not a good idea, I am not saying nothing against this vendor, I haven't seen their work so do not confuse my comment, this is about  not trust vendors.

 

Cheers!

My husband and I were married on November 4, 2010 and chose to just have the 10 pictures that were included in the wedding package, as we had family and friends taking pictures. The pictures were nice, however I agree with the review above that talks about the "angles" the photographer shot at some pretty strange angles although "artistic" they didn't turn out too flattering. We also found the photographer to be very distracting, while taking pictures is their job, I feel it could have been done in a less intrusive way. message if you would like to see pictures!

I am getting married atthe Akumal resort in just under a year. I find all the photography very confusing. I have read that you have to pay for three days for the photographer to stay. then five days, then you can't do it at all.

 

I have looked at this vendors pics and they are nice, but they are literally ALL the same. and also VERY expensive for what they provide. I am more into photo journalism ad they just don't shoot like that.  I would love some accurate info.

If you book an outside Photographer from Mexico you have to pay for a day pass for each photographer that comes along on the day (cant recal the cost but it is on other threads on here) if you fly someone from Canada you will have to pay for them to stay 5 days at the hotel.  Regarding Arrecife yes looking at different peoples wedding photos the poses are the same but you have to remember that they photograph at the hotel locations multiple times per day and know how to capture all the fabulous photo styles and know what works!  I have been talking with a recent bride who booked an outside photographer in Cancun and was disappointed in their photos sad.gif  When they went to choose the 10 photos from Arrecife they got in their wedding package they bought an extra 20 as they were so much better than the photographer they paid for.

 

At the end of the day you will know whats the best choices for your day - as with everything financials always play a big part in the determining things too.

    • 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
