Hello ladies,

 

Well, we got our date set for our wedding next year, but now we need to choose a photographer. Most of the photographers I see that are partnered with Lomas kinda suck :(  I really like Sarani but she is also very expensive...

 

Fellow Azul and El Dorado brides, who did you choose for photography? Did you go with an approved vendor, or bite the bullet and pay an outside vendor fee?

 

Thanks in advance!

I am not one of those brides.... But I am doing a wedding in Riveria Maya in 2015.... I have done extensive research on a photographer and videographer.... After all of that research I found Dean Sanderson http://deansandersonweddings.com or at his FB https://www.facebook...sonWeddings.... We absolutely loved his photographic style and him and his wife Anna have been an absolute delight to work with.... And trust me thief prices are fantastic given the quality received....

Also after contacting Dean and Anna, I asked for a referral to a videographer that they had worked with and they gave me Mike Cantarell http://mikecantarellfilms.com... He has also been great throughout the booking process.... He offers two different types of video styles and we choose the traditional based on pricing... Which again for the quality was very low!

Great thing about these two is that they will go to the resort as one "team" so that you are inky charged one outside vendor fee (assuming your resort will charge)

Hope this was helpful!!!

    @ Travelgal78  We are getting married at Azul Beach on 4/19. We thought the same thing about the Karisma photographers. We didn't like the quality. We chose to bite the bullet and went with Playaweddings for photo/video. We did have to pay the outside vendor fee, but Playaweddings discounted the package price to offset the vendor fee.

      That is a nice gesture to discount the package! I may have to look into them thanks :)

        Congratulations!!. My wedding will be in Puerto Vallarta next year. , I don't know if this might help but I'm deciding between Estefania Flores photography and Photoshoots Vallarta. I've noticed they both travel and their prices are ok, Photoshoots it's a little more expensive.

         

        Hope it helps!! @travelgal78

          Thanks in advance!

          As far as I know, Karisma has a contract with Lomas travel, this means that the photography service was bid and won by a third party, so there is no approved photographer for these resort, just the company than won the bid. But also Karisma, Lomas travel and the third pary can block an outside photographer for many reasons, if we are not blocked then we are approve but you will have to pay the outside vendor fee anyway, I AM NOT BLOCKED and I AM APPROVED . hope you find this post helpful
