I'm using Quetzlal Photo and she has been so great to work with up to this point. I know she also shoots for one of the larger Cancun agencies but has gone out on her own. Good luck!

@calgarybride2015 thank you so much for actually offering so kind feedback. I do have a 16 year old coming who loves to play the drums, dj, take photographs, lol you get the picture? Haha he would love to I'm sure I just don't know that I want anyone to have to be mindful of taking photos who are guests. I know me... I'll have 1 or 2 drinks and I'll be telling them to relax and enjoy themselves and not worry about taking my photographs and end up regretting it later....
@spjwedding thanks for the referral! I'm going to look at her info now!

    We went with Octavio montes. I can't remember the exact quote but it's along the lines of $1000 for 4 or 5 hours. He also has cheaper packages for less hours. After shopping around for a bit we thought his prices were very reasonable and we liked his pictures. He has most of the prices on his website and you can ask him for more if you'd like. There's definitely affordable photographers out there, for the most part it is a tedious job to shop around for pictures you like, ask for quotes and then find out that you can't afford half of them haha but that's sort of the norm with any vendor. I know that the prices seem like a lot, but compared to local photographers $1000 is a steal. They also put tons of time editing the pictures and behind the scenes, it's not as easy as pressing a button.

      We're going for JhanKarlo http://jhankarlophotography.com/ who is reasonably priced, I love what I've seen of his work and he's been great when it comes to communication. Fingers crossed he's the superstar he seems!

        Octavio has great pricing too - just checked them out.  On his page he makes reference to this site if you want even cheaper packages..
