photography??? use the resorts or hire your own??? help!

Recommended Posts

Outside photographer all the way...at least that is my opinion.  It is the one thing I know matters the most because those pics are the only things you will have with you from that amazing day.  I hope all these posts make it easier for you to decide.

I am not using the photographer at the resort. I hired Samuel Luna, a local photographer. Sandra and Daniela can recommend some great photographers (that's what they said when I met them a couple of weeks ago- hopefully not just friends but actual great and reputable photographers!). And since we aren't using the resort photographer but he was included in the Divine wedding package, we are able to add on to the videographer's services. I am sure that you could do the same, depending on what wedding package you have purchased. Just thought I'd let you know!

I did not pay a lot of money for my photography and I am 110% satisfied with my photos. Plus, my main photographer is Mexican and speaks Spanish which came in handy! 

I was honestly surprised at some of the quotes I received while planning my wedding in Mexico. I live in Chicago which is a pretty expensive city and some of the prices in Mexico were higher than what I was quoted here (higher by $1000-$2,000).  I agree that you should look at their work, get recommendations from other brides and go with what makes you feel comfortable. However, just because someone charges over $5,000 (and I consider this a good chunk of cashola!)  does not mean you will necessarily be happier with that choice. I personally would not trust the resorts' photographer unless you have seen the work and are truly happy with it!  You will look beautiful and Im sure all will be perfect for you!

i have decided to go with Gonzalo Nunez for my wedding photography.  i feel so much better about hiring someone other then the resort photographer, not that they would do a horrible job but i feel better being able to see great photos from a photographer who is able to show you their work so you can get an idea of their photography style.  gonzalo has been great to work with and he takes amazing photos.  i am excited to work with him in february! :)

Hola!

Choosing your photographer is a very personal task. The only way to know who your photographer will be is looking at their work. Ask to look at the photographer's work with a previous client reference if possible. There are many ways to photograph an event, some like candid shots, some like fashion posses, some have more journalistic work, some mixes all this toghether or can do as you ask. So this is what I recommend.

=)
