And she's very reasonably priced! My WC actually used her in her wedding!

By chance, how long did it take for Gilda to get back to you? I really like her work and have sent her two seperate emails, but heard nothing. My wedding is a ways off, but I would love to have her do engagment session when we arrive for a site visit.

I just got married in Villa Cielito (Chileno Bay) in Los Cabos a couple of weeks ago. Upon this site recommendation, I also used Gonzalo Verdeja of Art'n Colors Photography & Video and am so Happy we chose him. I've attached below a couple of our fav photos. Absolutely AMAZING photos!!! We have received so many compliments & whom the photographer is. Gonzalo is very professional, personable, and talented. As another bride mentioned above, we also wanted to look for a "local" photographer w/o all the wedding hype which every other Cabo bride was using. I had tried to get in touch w a couple but didn't receive any responses. Gonzalo replied right away & has always been very responsive and helpful. His prices were within our budget and he does fabulous work as you can see...and these were just a couple of our many favorites. I still follow him on his Facebook business page https://www.facebook.com/ArtNColors. We had originally only booked him for a couple of hours and ended up using him for 2 more and he was nice enough to stay throughout our crazy fun night! Definitely highly recommend him! Elaine

We love our photos and we can't say enough good things about our photographer. Although it has been almost a year and a half since our special day, my husband and I still like to look at our photos. We chose to use Gonzalo from Art' n Colors Photography & Video rather than go with the popular photographers that appear on this forum for similar reasons as quoted above. We did our fair share of contacting photographers but were never satisfied with any responses. And my husband and I also preferred to look for vendors who were more local, less "big name" and less everyone-else-is-using-them. Gonzalo's prices were in line with our budget and he was just fabulous to work with. Whenever I get a chance to recommend him I do, like now. :) I keep up with his wedding pictures and other photography on his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ArtNColors) and as usual love his work. So I'd encourage people to check him out.

Upon Pucca's recommendation above I contacted Gonzalo Verdeja from Art' N Colors Photography & Video and couldn't have been happier with my decision. Everyone loved the vivid pictures and beautiful moments he captured. Before contacting Gonzalo I had also contacted a handful of photographers & didn't get much of a response either...maybe they are too busy?? He's not one of the bigger vendors in Cabos but I can vouch he did a fabulous job and worked well with our budget. His packages are very reasonable and he's very responsive. He kept in touch on Facebook and email throughout our trip there before, during and afterwards. We had originally worked in the budget for 3 hours but the wedding party went on way past and he was nice enough to stay longer for us. He's very professional and personable guy.You can find him on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ArtNColors?ref=br_tf

I'm a wedding photographer that has actually been looking to dive into more destination weddings. I am based in Chicago but have photographed weddings in Florida, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Kentucky and more.

 

Basically, what I have been doing is just asking for air and loding to be covered, and I'll provide full day photography coverage. You even get all of the hi-res images that you can print and share!

 

I love to travel, and I love to photograph in new places.

 

If you are interested - let me know! :)

Hi there, My husband and I just got married in Cabo about three weeks ago. I can honestly say that I thought it was totally perfect! Pictures were really important to us. Our wedding planner recommended a couple of photographers but we ended up hiring Gonzalo Verdeja from Art N Colors. He was really wonderful on the wedding day. I am not a natural in front of the camera but he had great suggestions of where to take pictures and poses. He made us both (and our families) feel really comfortable. Gonzalo was so kind, accommodating and easy to work with. We just got our photos back and they are BEAUTIFUL! I hands down recommend Gonzalo to be your photographer, you will be so happy! I have attached one here. Caitlin Phippen400

I just want to leave a note for the brides that dream of pretty pictures but dont want to splurge on the pictures budget. Dont believe that you wont get good pictures if you dont spend 5k on a photographer! More is not always better!

 

There are many options of good photographers in Cabo for every budget! But what we see from here of course is more expensive.

 

 I believe that having a  photographer is a very important part of a wedding, you need a good and reliable one. But good and reliable doesnt mean you have to spend an absurd amount. That is what I believe.

 

I found many good photographers for under 1k  with 5 hours package which is more than enough to get great pictures! We decided to use our budget on good food, because your guests will not forget that cheap menu and they were hungry after all! lol

 

Do your selection or pictures  and send it over to your photographer before the wedding. That is what I did.

 

I hired Carlos Aboyo and I believe that he did a incredible job took amazing pictures, was on time and very professional and I did no need to spend 5k.

I hired Carlos Aboyo. Very reasonable pricing, no splurging and we get him for 5 hours. Another bride hired him for her wedding and her pictures are beautiful.

    • 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.
