    Chris + Lynn are amazing! I contacted them for mine but were just out of my budget.

    Does anyone know or willing to tell me about how much Chris + Lynn photography charge. Or about the type of budge I would need to book them?

            I'll say something right away just to get it out of the way - I am the groom. :)

            The reason I finally decided to sign up for this forum after having spent a few good hours reading through your posts, is that while we are almost done booking our vendors with a lot of help from all of you guys, I am stuck at booking a photographer.

            First off, we were originally going to have our wedding in Los Angeles (where we live) but had a change of heart and decided to go for the destination wedding in Cabo. In my head, that also meant that all the vendors in Cabo would obviously be cheaper than LA..... wrong. But I am slowly getting over that. It's a one-time thing so I guess that we have to accept what we would otherwise call grossly overpriced services.

            So, photographers... I went through about 30 of them, and picked a few from which I requested quotes. Most of them were way out of our budget (and I believe that we have a very reasonable budget to say the least at $3,000 --- used to be 2,000-2,500), and one of them was just at the peak of our budget. I don't want to mention a name but the reason we are still hesitant on booking that photographer is that we get a feeling that they are very full of themselves and may not actually let us take all the types of photos we would like. Also, it's very very hard to get in touch with that particular person which makes us worry.

            I have been assigned the task of booking a photographer, and right when I was about to give up and hire a person that we are not 100% comfortable with, I checked back on this forum and searched a little more... Long story short, I found 4 more new photographers that had been hired by brides here at some point or another and I already contacted 2 of them and waiting to see what they say. That is why I started this thread. May this serve as a stepping stone for those who need some help figuring out their options.

            It's easy to find the few photographers that have good websites, and you can also stumble upon a list or two with a lot of photographers... but those lists are outdated in my experience and it's hard to navigate through them. One of them is here - loscabosguide .com/photographers.htm

            I kindly ask all of you who have either worked with a photographer in Cabo in the past, or those that have done their research and booked a photographer for their special day to tell the rest of us about it. To anyone that has searched in this forum, it's obvious that there are about 5 photographers that cover more than 70% of weddings in Cabo... and that's fine.. people are happy with them so by all means.. but I feel that there is a lot of hidden photography talent out there that just doesn't know how to market themselves effectively and be seen!! That's why I hope that you can help us and everybody else who is planning or will be planning a Cabo wedding in the future by listing some of those less popular but talented photographers.

            Or just feel free to make any comments or share your advice!

            Thank you in advance!

             

            I have posted about our photographer somewhere before but I forget which thread. I have also shared about him on my planning thread, but I will share my experience again through this thread as I just came upon it today. 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.

              Have you considered bringing a photographer with you to Cabo? We are flying our photographer in for 5 days to photograph our wedding. I knew I wanted her for our wedding once I saw her photos and she is quite a bit cheaper than hiring a local photographer in Cabo.  Some photographers offer a discounted destination wedding rate as well.

              Please help! I am really panicking about having good photos of the big day.

               

              Thanks!!

              Hi, I'm not sure if you received any info yet from the photographers at Dreams. I as well am going with what they offer in the packages and deciding to buy extra. I'll PM you with the details they gave me. I also have a 2014 wedding. Hope it helps!

                Has anyone used the Cabo Adventure photographers at Dreams? We have them included in our package but more than happy to look elsewhere if they aren't great.
