Ask the Photographers!

Recommended Posts

I am going to have my wedding in August 2015 in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.  I am going to be visiting Playacar Palace Resort for a possible wedding venue this December 2013.  While I am there, I am hoping to do my Save The Date photos or Engagement photos.  What are some prices or packages that are offered?  Any price range and how many pictures?

Wonderful thread! So much useful information!

 

One question I have for our lovely photographers is about having a "must have" photography list. There are threads that have mentioned this list so the photographer knows exactly what you want, but I've noticed some of these lists can be extensive. How do you feel about brides providing "must have" lists? Do you feel like these limit your own creativity?

Hey McKievme!  

 

That is a question that comes up from time to time :-).  When a couple books with me, I do ask them for a family photo list.  I organize it so we can quickly do those directly after the ceremony, while everyone is still around.  

 

Some couples want to send us some of their ideas for other parts of the day as well.  I don't mind looking at samples they have found online because it gives me a general idea of what they are looking for.  For example - kissing/romantic photos, or something more fun and playful, colorful, etc.

 

Speaking from a photo journalistic view point - I do suggest though that you feel connected to your photographers style before booking them.  If you trust their vision you don't need to prepare anything for them, which will make both of your lives easier :-).  Duplicating the work of other photographers can be time consuming and restrict your photographer from letting their own creativity guide the photo session.  

 

Confining your photographer to a list is not going to allow them to "see" the uniqueness of your day, your location and your guests.  My advice is to choose someone you trust and let 'em do their thing :-).

 

If you have cool/fun ideas that you'd like them to interpret in their own way, then voice your idea on the day of the wedding.  I personally love when couples have a few ideas of their own because it allows more of their personality to shine through the photos.  

 

Here are a couple recent examples of my interpretation of couples wedding day requests:

I hope that answers your question!!  Thanks for posting here.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
