    Hi. The great people at tripadvisor suggested I hop over here to ask a few questions. I read several threads about cenote photos.  On one of them, someone mentioned $400 for a local photographer, but I can't find the details.


    I've been scrolling through about a million websites, sending emails, etc, looking for a reasonable price for cenote photos.  All I want is photos of the 2 of us, me in a fancy dress. I understand that most photographers are looking for the big jobs, but this is just a cheap-ee job.  Prices I am finding range from $1000 to $3000. This seems really steep since we're both divers and take pictures under water all the time.


    Has anyone already done all this research? Could you point me in right direction? We are willing to stay closer to the photographers home base, or travel off-season to keep the price down.  It doesn't have to be the quality of Vogue or Sports Illustrated.


    Also, what types of dresses work best? Lots of cloth, less cloth? And does anyone know the best waterproof make-up?
    Thanks so much!
