I currently am helping my friend with her upcoming wedding at Dreams Riveria Maya this Sept. While also slowly planning my Riveria Maya wedding for next Fall. We've been looking at photographers and nothing is working into our budget. Everyone is stating 3K and up. Anyone know of great photographers to hire for much lower budget who can still give us great pictures ?
Fortunately, there are photographers these days for nearly almost every budget. I think the first thing is finding a photographer whose style you love, then reaching out to them for a quote. Definitely utilize the vendor sections on this site and take a look at the reviews and recommendations. Cancun/Riviera Maya has tons of awesome photographers for various price point ranges.
Another option is to reach out to a photographer that might be local to you or located in the US. Plenty of brides, including myself, have actually hired a photographer to travel to their destination and photograph their wedding. Sometimes this actually becomes economically feasible if the photographer is willing to work with your budget. It's just a matter of finding the one that fits your needs.
