@riskyteacher Hi! I am also in the same boat as you with regards to Ocean Photo Studio, I am wondering what your negotiated rate for your 5 hours photos, CD, and video is and if I might be able to negotiate the same rate!

    I have decided to fly a photographer from home.. I paid for their trip 4 days which comes to about $2000. But I also get a photographer that knows me, and can be with us for more than just my big day!

    After doing some research and factoring the images I saw along with pricing and packages, we decided to go with Octavio for our wedding photography in July 2015. His pricing is very reasonable and he was willing to adjust his packages to accommodate what we wanted.

    His website has a lot of information and samples of his work. [ www.OctavioMontes.com ] If you're unsure of your photography options, I would suggest taking a look at Octavio's work. I'm looking forward to my wedding and to working with Octavio next year.

      Just to let everyone know, who is considering bringing in a photographer from home ... that it is illegal for someone to come to Mexico and photograph a wedding without proper working papers. The same way people can not just travel to the USA or Canada and work. Cancun airport is very aware of this and as you will see... scans all luggage arriving when you go through customs.


      People traveling with more than one camera will need to answer for the equipment. We're not trying to scare you... just give you the facts of working in a foreign country.


      MTM has recently changed all the prices to accommodate couples who are working with a budget. We also work with you when your resort charges a substantial "outside vendor" fee to bring us in.

      We're not saying you need to hire us, there are many professional photographers available here who will create an an amazing photo record of your Big Day!!!


      We ARE saying if photography is important to you - you'll be much happier with the results a professional photographer will deliver :)


      To show you what we're talking about, here's a link to some comparisons:

      Professional Photographer vs Resort Photographer    ...you can see an example here:





      ...which photo would you choose to include in your Wedding Day Love Story - to cherish for a lifetime?!?!?


      Wishing everyone happy research, and all the best with your plans - cheers!!! team MTM :)

        We were going to go with our resorts photography as we didn't want to pay the 500$ extra. however we looked at octavio's website and his SIX hour package plus the 500$ deposit and 10% off comes under what we were going to pay from ocean studio .  so we have decided to go with this option and are very excited to have them capture our wedding! 



        This is his website if you want more information
