          Are there quite a few great photographers locally?  I've seen a few name over and over again, I haven't really started looking yet though.

           

          How far in advance should you be booking the destination photographers, and in general are the prices about the same as it would be for a photographer back home?

            Congrats!

             

            Also I saw a few girls on here saying they couldnt afford the photographer they wanted. My favorite photographer in the world is Matt From Del Sol photographer. I am sure you guys have seen there work on this site. Here is their wiki if you havnt http://www.bestdesti...ws-riviera-maya

             

            But anyways. While his world class expertise does cost a pritty penny ( And Well Worth It ) He just started a sister company to Del Sol  Called La Luna. They are half the cost. VERY Afordable. And you still get the amazing photo journalism that Matt has been noted for in Magizines all over the world. Check them out before you book anyone!

              I requested quotes from at least 7 or 8 different people..i made a spreadsheet if you'd like to look at it...but i've found as low as 1200 all day to 4000 all day....I love who I selected because it was in my budget and still so amazing quality

                  Totally a good idea!

                   

                  My FI kept b*tching at me that a year out was too soon to book things. Figuers when I called the hotel ( A YEAR OUT) to save the date....It was already taken!

                      Hi Cynthia,

                       

                      I am too jsut trying to figure out the photographer situation! I started doing a chart as you mentioned but I still haven't quite decided... Who did you end up choosing? Is your resort charging you a penalty for an external photographer?
