Photography Concerns

Recommended Posts

Hey girls...

 

I'm starting to get a bit stressed about choosing a photographer. Are there any honestly reasonably priced photographers in the Cabo area or is the most budget-friendly option taking someone down with you? Any input is greatly appreciated.

My wedding is in Jamaica so I'm not sure about photographers in cabo but I found it bet to bring one with me. All the photographers in Jamaica I either didn't like their work or they were over $4000 for 5 hours of shooting. I'm bringing an awesome photographer with me and in total paying about $3500 and that's full day coverage and a TTD shoot

Thanks girls... so how did you go about finding these awesome photographers?
I'm bringing a local photog from home. I found her at our wedding show. There were about 45 different photogs there so I just looked for ones that I liked their style then went by price. I'm paying $2000 for the full day package (she charges $6500 for the same package here at home) then $1500 for travel. Plus I get the day after shoot. I'm sure I could have found someone cheaper but my fiancé is a photographer as well (not wedding) and very picky about the work they do and so I guess you can say I'm trained at what to look for ( framing, lighting, lines, ect) and telling the difference between someone who has trained and practised for a long time And someone who just picked up an digital camera and bought photoshop. To me it's amazing how many resort photographers are actually horrible at their job yet charge ridiculous amounts of money.

Hi Brooke! You should really check out Gilda Badillo. I don't know what your price range is, but that is who we are using and I think she is EXTREMELY affordable. She is super responsive and nice. You can search her on Facebook and she has a website. Other brides on here have used her as well. Good luck!

We are bringing our photographer with us. I booked her right after we got engaged without meeting her which was kind of a gamble but I love her photos! We just did our engagement pictures and she is awesome and best of all, she offers a discounted rate for destination weddings. She is a fraction of the cost of some photographers I looked at in Cabo.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
