    What is the average cost of a wedding photographer + video in Mexico?  I found one I love (Sarani Photography) but more than I budgeted for....$5700 for 6 hrs, high resolution digital pics on cd with rights, mini video, + long video.  What should I do...got with the pricey photographer, who I absolutely love OR go with the resort photographer (Ocean Photo Studio) which is about 1/2 the cost?

    I would definitely go with the more expensive photographer that you love! Maybe you could talk to him about customizing a package for you with less hours for a cheaper cost.

    I forgot to include my costs. For the photography I'm going with Dean Sanderson his prices are very good and he's got a great portfolio... I am getting 4 hours of photography with all photography rights for$2000.00.. Something close to this... For video I'm going with Mike Canterall (sp) with Cancun wedding videography... Again, I can't remember the exact cost but it's 4 hours around the same cost...

      What about taking some time and looking around maybe? There are so many wonderful photographers in the RM area. Maybe contact a couple of others and see what their pricing and packages offer. I can think right off the top of my head of about 4 that don't cost anywhere near that much, and their photos are wonderful!

       

      Good luck!

        Hola @dawnb,

         

        It's true that by hiring an outside professional in the end you will be comfortable knowing what to expect from your photographer in terms of coverage, quality AND price. Often resorts still have many hidden costs and won't provide you with all of your hi-res images, full rights etc. 

         

        For example we even have packages that start at $1,500 and will cover many of the must have moments from your special day. :)

         

        Happy planning!

          Can you send me some recommendations?  I'd prefer to go with a company that specializes in both photography & cinematography.  Thank you.

          I was reading the new posts in this great forum and I wish I could had found this before, my photographer Ivan Luckie ask me to write a review in here so I found it! but funny how all the photographers I research are advertised in this site, anyways I want to share his page, his work is beautiful! and the reviews about Ivan are awesome!

           

          Check out his work and tell me isn't lovely! http://www.luckiephotography.com

          Sarani has AMAZING work I can't wait to use her for my wedding day.  I def think the splurge for a good photographer is important.  It was a large chunk of our budget.
