Hi Natalie2012

 

No we decided not to do the TTD.  And yes, Merrick's great and very patient!! Especially coming from a bride who has a gazillion questions. :P

Good Luck!

I am thrilled to report that TrueColors Photography was one of the best parts of my wedding!  They were absolutely AMAZING!!  On time, professional, and ARTISTS!  I have my pictures, and they all turned out BEAUTIFULLY!!!  It makes me upset to know that these wonderful people who are SOOOO great at what they do get such a bad rap on this forum.  I can honestly say that they went above and beyond the call of duty for my wedding day, even giving extra time to make sure they got the shots they wanted.  They truly captured the love of the ceremony and our relationship.  Everyone is commenting that our pictures make them tear up, and they do not even know what we are saying.  Judine and Dwayne will be photographing me and my husband again when we renew our vows in Jamaica, or maybe for a honeymoon shoot next year when we return to Jamaica.  Here are a few of the hundreds of great pics they captured.

I don't have pics to share yet, but Roan Robinson has been awesome so far. He is based out of Negril. He is coming to Ocho Rios for our wedding. We will leave after the ceremony to a great location overlooking the ocean for sunset pics. Then we have a TTD session scheduled during our honeymoon in Negril. I can't wait. He was very patient answering all my questions, and we still chat on FB all the time. The best part is he costs alot less than the other photographers down there cuz he is up and coming.  I'll post pics when we get them!

I used Diana Campbell and Richard Brown with Digital Memories Collection http://www.digitalmemoriescollection.com/ after researching many photographers in Jamaica. For me it was worth every penny. Diana took us off the resort to shoot at Shaw Park Botanical Gardens at the Waterfalls. I also received a mini trash the dress session and a video with music in my package. That would have been extra cost. That's something we wouldn't have gotten to do if we went with resort Photographers. We have a video we would have had to hire someone else to record if we went with someone else and pay extra if we went with the resort. I felt photos were the most important expense in all this and wanted to record every moment in video and photos. I was able to get all my photos that day (300+ photos) with Diana & Richard on CD and wonderful video before I left that week. Something I would have never been able to afford with the resort if I had to pay for all of them. She was affordable and worked within my budget. I was quite pleased with her work. As you can see from the pictures above their work is quality work. Contact her let her know what you want. Get a price quote that is what I did with all the photographers and I weighed all the they had to offer me for price before I made my final choice. My photos from that day are priceless and I knew the most important decision I made was the Photographer. I new after speaking with Diana that day I was in good hands and my worries went away. Now that I have my pictures I smile about our conversation that we had on the phone and I remember how nervous I was but I can tell you they put their heart and soul in what they so. They spend 5 + hours with me that day was by my side the whole time during the one of the most important moments of my life. From the time I was getting my hair and make up done till the sun went went down. They captured it all and I am so grateful that we have these memories forever to reflect on. I think they did a wonderful job and I couldn't have asked for anything else that day. It was a wonderful experience.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
