@KeriT21 I'll have to check her out. If you have narrowed it down to two and can't decide, I'd suggest setting up Skype interviews with them and see who's personality you mesh with better. The more comfortable you are with your photographer, the better pictures they will be able to get out of you.
@JaimeCKL that wedding dress is gorgeous!! Who is the designer? It reminds me a bit of mine with the fitted top and flowy waist. BTW, I also have Thamara for our wedding coordinator. I'm still waiting to hear back on a quote for a few different flower arrangements and centerpiece options and its been about 3+ weeks. At this rate, its going to take forever to make decisions.
@lynne1609 yeah I was happy with the photographers for the portrait sessions. For context, the non-wedding prices they quoted us was a 30 min photo shoot (ended up being about 45 mins) around the resort and $500 if we wanted to purchase all the pictures, for $550 they included 7 prints and a small album of 25 images.
I also found a DIY on here to make your own LED lights for the lanterns. I just bought the LEDs and i'm waiting for them to arrive to try it out. Here's the BDW's thread: http://www.bestdesti...paper-lanterns/ and here's the instruction link on Instructables for "LED Throwies": http://www.instructables.com/id/LED-Throwies/?ALLSTEPS
