    Were they all unique or were there some duplicates?

      ..sorry by duplicates, I mean the same pose... just shot at different angles.

       

      I'm curious how many usable photos I should end up with..

        I think it all depends on your photographer. Did they tell you what to expect prior? Will you get the rights to all the photos?

          we only had 5 hours of coverage - 3.5 wedding, 1.5 TTD.  We recieved +/- 750 images and I love +/- 400 of them.  I really struggled selecting my favorites for our wedding album; I used close to 150 in 40 pages.  Some are very similar with subtle differnence that have a huge impact and evoke something a little different. 

           

          Probably crazy and not true, but I'm convinced that our coverage is amoung the best work our photographer has ever done.  This is how happy I am with our photo coverage, I'm totally obsessed with looking at them, and I'm sure you'll feek the same way once you receive them.

            It depends on how many hours included. My photographer provided 12 hours for the day of which is why we have so many photos. It is dependant on each photographer.

              We had 6 hours... i finally got my thumb drive from them and it only had 360 on it, and more than 100 of them were of the dance floor.  Needless to say I freaked out.  I'm getting the rest of the raw photos sent to me.. which is 1000, but I hate to say it, I'm not happy at all and we paid A LOT of $ for them.  They didn't even get a clear shot of us coming back down the aisle...and there were TWO photographers.  I just don't understand how they missed so many key moments.  We did a lot of research and they are one of the most recommended where we got married.  I'm completely bummed.

               

              The photos were the most important part of my budget and I have maybe a handful that wowed me.  I won't say who it was until I let them straighten it out.  I'm not sure if he was off his game that day or what, but a wedding album should have hundreds that wow you, not a handful.

                  CONGRATULATIONS to all the May brides!  I hope all weddings went off without too many problems!  We had our share, which I'll update about when I find time to write my planning thread, but the wedding was mostly great and resulted in a pair of very happy newlyweds, so all ended well! 

                   

                  I promised myself I wouldn't be one of those brides who disappears from the site after getting married, but it's been a whirlwind since the wedding!  Literally as soon as we made it home, my wife was hospitalized with extreme asthma complications, so the first few days home were spent at the hospital. After that, it took her a month to get well, and then we were overwhelmed with catching up on everything that got shoved to the back burner just before and after the wedding. Things are finally calming down, and we're getting back to a normal routine, so I hope to be around more. I learned so much planning this wedding and hope to pass on the knowledge to future brides.

                   

                  The full collection of professional pictures is still on its way to us, but quite a few photos were posted in a slideshow on the blog:

                   

                   

                   

                   

                   

                  Wow, your photos are amazing!! Love the orange dress and purple hair too. You both looks so happy and in love. Congrats to both of you! :)

                  Hello all moon palace brides!! I have a question referring to DJ services. Which company did you select?? I have been in touch with JSAV, but wanted to know if there are any alternative DJ's to check into?

                  Hey ladies! We just got the first half of our photos from our photographers, and I am beyond excited!! We did a photoshoot the day before the wedding around the beach and in the town of Tulum. The wedding day photos should come within a week, and I can hardly wait!! :)

                   

                  I picked a few of my favourites to post here, but you can see the rest here at http://luckygirl.ca/blog if you'd like.

                   

                   

                   

                   

                   

                   


                  Are you interested in an affordable decor rental in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico? Send me a message! Most of the items I have are a rustic, vintage style.
