    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.

     

    Brooke

      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

        I second bringing your own. I found someone doing the whole week of shooting and im just covering all her travel expenses. Lots of talented professional photographers want this stuff in their portfolios.

            Craigslist for me. I know this sound sketchy but I got responses from photographers around the country. It's a sweet deal. They get to travel and have a vacay and add to their portfolio.

              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 fiancĀ© 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.
