Were getting married at the Mayan Rivieria at the Gran Bahia Akumal in May 2012. The resort does not allow outside photographers unless they are staying at the resort. I would love to have the ceremony, TTD, and maybe an excursion photographed. Our budget is around $4000-$5000 .

We are still undecided and I dont get to Toronto that often anymore but we do need to act soon since we get married one month after you!!!
Another option is a lady in hamilton that we contacted (she ships) "enchanting memories" I emailed her and she called me and we were on the phone for an hour and half chatting. She was so knowledgeable about destination weddings etc it was awesome, she is also so so kind! We just wanted 3 callas in four bouquets and the price just wasnt in our budget right then but she does great work! I would email and see what she can do!
Who in Punta Cana is doing your flowers? I would be interested to here what they are charging for their bouquets since we are trying to decide between real and real touch right now as well.
Where are you getting married? that would help us to give you suggestions.... do you want a canadian photographer? someone at your location? will you be paying for their trip etc. what is your budget? I am sorry to say that most of the people we talked to about flying down with us we would have had to pay for their trip (approx $1500-$2000) and then their fees on top. The only "bonus" would be that they photograph all week long which is really nice.
Photography is not cheap...... is it ever not cheap but I think you can find something to suit your budget based on your expectations!
