    I have to agree with you Jacki, I've also heard that Ronald Samuels was a lot of fun.  Paula from Sun Gold said you can see some of his work on the organization's site (Wedding Photographers Association of Jamaica) www.wpajamaica.com

      SunGold is awesome...I was not to happy with most of the photos I have seen from Marcia and for that price they should be a lot better. I will be working with Paula and Damien but if your wedding date is not available, their associates are very very very talented too. I like that as soon as I inquired with Paula she started sending me tons of slideshows to show her work at different resorts. I think I still have them in my email if anyone is interested. I also like that they asked me what my budget was and helped me customize a package for me. I can't wait until my big day!

        Any info will help now, Thanks!

        CVGreene- We used Sun Gold (Paula and Damian, a husband/wife team) for our wedding which was this past July at Moon Dance Villas. I could not recommend them more and just can not say enough positive things about their work and their services. From start to finish (we  just finalized our album this week since I took so long choosing the pictures I want to be in it - no fault of Sun Gold's at all), they have been delightful to work with. Aside from their beyond gorgeous work, they respond to emails and calls in a prompt manner and have been able to answer every single question that I've had. I wrote a full review of them and posted it in the Jamaica Forum under "Jamaica Wedding Vendors" but it was taken down because it is supposed to go under the general "Vendor Review" section. Lesson learned.


        Let me answer some of your specific questions:

        1. Was the shoot was fun? YES! It was amazing! I did not plan to have a TTD, but we did an impromptu one the day after the wedding in addition to taking photos at a nature preserve in Negril. Paula and Damian also came back to the resort to take some pictures of our next day brunch. Just fantastic! 


        2. Did the photographer capture the best moments? YES!!!! They captured EVERYTHING...me looking nervous as the sash to my dress was being tied, looking excited and teary-eyed at the same time as I walked down the aisle, and looking elated as we danced the night away. We took pictures on the beach and in one of the villas. They captured cocktail hour, all of the toasts, dancing, etc.


        3. How long did you wait to get your photos? Not long at all! We had a link to our pictures and DVDs of the images within about 2-3 months. The slide show was posted on their website in early November and we got a DVD of the slideshow immediately thereafter.


        4. Was the package worth what you paid? For all that we got, I would have paid more :)


        Even all these months after the wedding, I am still working with Paula and Damian and they are just going above and beyond. They've done an amazing job with the album layout and tweaked it to exactly my liking. 


        Sun Gold is not just a wedding photographer. It's an experience unto itself!!! So, for any bride considering Sun Gold, I have to say: Just go for it!! 


        I'll post some of my favorite Sun Gold photos separately, but in the meantime... Here's a link to our slideshow:






        PS - If you have any questions that I haven't answered, just PM me.
