Everyone loved their hair and makeup except my mom re-did her makeup as it was pretty heavy for her.Our photographer was Phil Steinguard and he was excellent! He had our entire day planned out from 10am until 10 pm. He met the guys around 10 30am and started doing pictures with just them. Then at 12pm he met myself and my bridesmaids in my room for our pictures. Then at about 130pm the entire bridal party met in the lobby for pictures. I was unsure about seeing my fianc© before the actual wedding, but it actually worked out okay. Phil set it up so that when we saw each other for the first time it was all captured in pictures. It turned out to be very emotional for everyone! Then at about 330pm the girls and guys separated again to freshen up for our 4 pm ceremony. We then took family photos and more bridal party photos on the beach from about 530 to 645pm. Then we went to freshen up again before the 7 pm reception. It was ALOT of pictures!! It will be worth it though, from what we saw, so far they look amazing!His cost included a 12 hour day, every image taken on a CD, all editing and a trash the dress session a couple of days after the wedding. We did not have to pay for his travel or accommodations because he is affiliated with the Magestic Elegance. We did however have to pay $120 to the resort for an outside photographer fee.
