I totally agree with both Jystar and Elizabeth on this one... If photography is important to you and you want great photos, then hire an outside photographer.
Three things I would like to add.
-Try to talk to them on the phone or skype... you want to make sure you can communicate well with them before you hire them as they will be directing you on a day when you want things to go smoothly...
-Ask for references. Good experienced photographers will have them and their clients will be more than happy to say good things about them.
-Look in Cancun and the Mayan Riviera for a photographer before bringing someone who wants to 'build their portfolio'... Taking someone who does not have much experience to an area that they have never photographed to shoot something they have never or seldom photographed before is quite the gamble. You are going to have to pay these people at least the cost of their plane ticket and accommodation as well as some extra money in order for them to work on the photos postproduction when they get back (btw. Post production takes 1-3 times the amount of time you shoot.. so a 5 hour day is can mean 5-15 hours of post depending on how experienced the shooter is. The less experienced, the more time. And if you are doing this to save money, you are hiring someone less experienced, right? ) I would rather see couples take that money and look for someone down thereâ€¦ ok, Iâ€™m going to jump off my soap box now
i hope this helps you (and others)...
