    I would budget anywhere from $1500 and up depending on how important photography is for you.  You can get packages for less but the quality and quantity is not always good.  We paid $1850 for 3 hours with 2 photographers and got all photos editied, on a disc, as well as 150 printed photos.  Make sure your photographer will give you a digital copy of all of your photos so you can print out more for your family and yourself.

      My wedding is in May and I'm using Fine Art Studio - http://www.fineartstudiomexico.com/ - they don't have a huge presence on this forum, I think that's because they're breaking into the market, but in doing my research, I found their style to be quite beautiful and I like that they're more photojournalistic, plus their price was great!

        We used Juan Navarro! HE WAS SO AMAZING AND FUN. After the wedding we decided to book Trash the Dress for the next day.

          We got married on 3/3/2011 and we used takeitfoto as our photographers... they were great to work with and really nice people, great with communication, not too intrusive, and of course the pictures came out awesome.  We had two photographers (one male, one female which is perfect) for the whole day - they don't charge hourly - and they gave us plenty of pictures and their prices are totally reasonable.  Their website is http://www.fototakei...ke_it/Home.html

          We highly recommend them - can't say enough good things about them, all of our guests loved them too.

                  There are countless wedding photographers around all catering for different budgets so the best I can recommend is do your research and see who caters for your particular needs. We all have our 'favorites'  but the important thing is to hire someone who you 'click' with, who can motivate you, who is artistic and who is reliable and whom you trust. What works for one doesn't necessarily work for someone else! Some photographers post fantastic pictures but they are not so cool to work with for various reasons. Get quotes from various photographers but don't simply choose the cheapest, you will always get what you pay for at the end of the day. Some are more professional than others and don't forget the size of the mega pixels on their cameras are not the most important thing either. One of my personal favorite's is www.grae-leaf.com, a young Californian guy who started off in L.A. and studied at the NY Arts Academy but there are many other good photographers. Everyone is different and in my profession as a Minister I have come across most photographers who work in this area. Having worked in photography myself for several years (not as a photographer but admin, assistant, pre- and post production) I feel that it is just as important to hire someone who you feel comfortable with as someone who knows their camera inside out. If they can't motivate you in an unobtrusive way to get 'that' shot or sense your mood at a particular moment and who is constantly aware of where they should be at the right moment, the best photographer is not going to deliver the pictures you want. Email photographers and make sure you talk with them in person just to get a feeling who they are and how they tick, don't necessarily listen to who's booked whom, everyone is different and everyone has a different personality. Good luck! :)

                    Hi Melissa,

                    We would be happy to help you document your celebration.  We recently relocated to the area and just joined the forum yesterday.  Besides weddings my wife and I shoot for National Geographic Image Collection.  I tend to have a photojounalistic style and my wife more of an elegant portrait style.  Please feel free to take a look at our website www.mandjphoto.com . You can also contact us to get an email for a Denver bride whose wedding I shot in Tulum.
