I'm getting married July 26, 2014 at Barcelo Maya Palace in Riviera Maya.  I'm completely stressed and confused with what to do with the photographer.  The Ocean Photo Studio is the onsite resort photographer and it looks like they take good pictures, however, they are very pricey.  If I'm going to pay a lot for photos and a video, should I venture out and hire a different photographer?  If so, can anyone recommend a great photographer who captures vibrant pictures of the natural, tropical beauty that Mexico has to offer?

I say hire an outside person too. You want your pics to be fabulous.

@@dawnb Best advice is to find images from a photographer whose style really suits what you're looking for and to feel comfortable with your photog. It's super important to be able to chat with and connect with your photographer leading up to your big day. Unlike many of your other vendors your photographer is there the whole day and part of so many special & private moments. That will help you make your decision.


The good news is Barcelo Maya has plenty of gorgeous spots for photos so you have a lot of awesomeness to look forward to!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
