        He really is wonderful to work with - very professional and hard working (and nice!). We had our images on disc delivered to us in person on our honeymoon, which was a real treat. Christa used him also if you want to see more of his pics (she is a senior member of the forum). He is a member of the forum, too, I think...

          Hi, I'm still trying to figure out the whole photo/video thing. I am booking Dreams Los CAbos, and inthe ultimate wedding package, it says that the phottos and video are included from tomas barrone. But what I'm looking for is a coffee style album, so will it cost me tomas's regular price, and if so is it worth just hiring someone else, or will i get a discount if i use tomas barrone as our photographer and order the album thru him?

            ... VERY IMPORTANT ADVICE...

            Whatever you decide to do, it is NOT a good idea to fly in a photographer... unless they have an FM3 Visa, which allows them to work legally in Mexico. Immigration/Customs are showing up at weddings... it happened to me! If I did'nt have my work Visa that would have been the end of wedding photos...

              Tomas Barron's rates are extremely reasonable. I don't recall him offering albums when we looked into using him. We ended up canceling our contract for the wedding but he did shoot our engagement photos.. Just make sure you like his style. You can also search "Barron" and you'll find several posts. If you don't like his work, there are many other talented photographers in Cabo. We flew in a photographer. I never heard of immigration/customs coming to someone's wedding.. why would they? They can tell someone is a photographer at the airport by seeing their equipment.

                Im using Gilda Badillo. Our friends used her last summer and their pictures turned out great. Shes incredibly reasonable too- weve booked her for 7 hours and its $2100.

                Good luck!!

                    ... If your WC in Cabo knew you were flying in your photographer they did you a huge dis-service. They know about immagration and what they're doing about foreign vendors... not good.
