They have various resort photographers. We were lucky and got an amazingggg photographer. His name is Jhankarlo and he did our photos there which we loved and eventually used as our engagement photos. He's in our package, upon request, but also we're contracting him on the side for our ttd at the cenotes for another $900. Which includes entry to the cenotes, all photos on CD, and I believe it's 4 hours. Just alone at the cenotes he says the entry is $200.

I gotta vent about Anel :( She sent me a confirmation email but messed up my areas. She put reception for beach terrace and I specified beach, private area. She messed up on ceremony too. I'm getting nervous with her and considering hiring Yazmin just to relieve some stress now that Sandra is gone.

Interesting, she emailed me last night to confirm the correct locations. Maybe she reads BDW lol

Does he usually work at Dreams Riviera?  

We're considering using the resort photographers, but I want to see some wedding samples from the actual photographer who will be shooting our wedding.

I know he is part of Adventure Photos? not sure the name exactly. But he has done weddings for Dreams, Secrets, Mayakoba..& the Now. I'm sure you can email him and request it.

I heard back from Adventure Photos at Now Sapphire (i.e., the resort's photographer).  They said that they only designate the specific photographer a few days before the wedding, so they couldn't send me any specific sample work.  They said that when you arrive at the resort, you can visit the gallery to see the work of each photographer.  I don't find this to be a particularly reassuring process.  I'd like to have an idea of what the pictures could look like BEFORE I decide to book the photographer.  So I guess I'm back to considering an outside photographer.  Does anyone know for certain - does the resort charge you $300 to bring in a photographer on the wedding day?

 

Also, I have the price list for wedding packages from Adventure Photos, in case anyone wants it.

Hi Lianee,

 

I have heard back from the NOW as I am in the process of hiring Yazmin to deal with them directly. They are starting to aggrivate me as Anel told me I wouldn't be able to hire outside vendors, which idk who she is to tell me that since with Sandra it is fine and I don't see that anywhere on the contract so I am awaiting a response. I specified that I wanted Jhankarlo, unfortunately the coordinator or head hancho from Adventure Photos told me he is no longer with the company, so guess what. We're back to also looking for someone. This is sincere crap. I am beyondddd upset! Not to mention, for additional ppl past our divine package, its $105+service.. That is un-be-lieve-able! I am in absolute shock. I am beyond stressed right now.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
