Does anyone know of an affordable photographer for a cenote trash the dress in the Playa Del Carmen area!?! I am looking for one around $900.

@@DLS2016  for $900 you might find photographers for beach Trash The Dress!  simply because for Cenote TTD they mostly use different/ special equipment and that costs a bit!


Happy Planning!

@DLS2016  Joyce is right. That's a tight budget for a cenote trash the dress. But having said that, it's definitely worth looking that some of the photographers and asking for quotes from them. They all have different styles too so it's worth looking to see if there is also a style that you like. There are some wonderful photographers in the Riviera Maya area.


If you go to the top and look at the vendor reviews you'll find the names that you can check on the internet and contact them.


Good luck!

Welcome to our forum community DLS2016 and Congrats on your upcoming Cenote TTD in Playa del Carmen!!! Those photo sessions are so Amazing and some of our favorites to shoot!!!


Joyce is right, however, and just the entry to local Cenotes can vary between $300 - $500 USD, and is shot using underwater equipment worth MANY thousands of dollars... so your current spending plan may not work for those.

To decide whether the higher expense is worth it for you, you'd need to balance the trade-off of spending more $$ - with the the lifetime of cherishing the images you'd get from it.


Here are some of our favorites.....enjoy!!!

Gonzalo Nunez is shooting both my wedding and doing a Trash the Dress.  http://www.gonzalonunez.com/


I felt like he has great rates!  My TTD is going to be $600, which it is normally $1300 for him.  He may have given me a good deal because we booked him for the wedding too but he just offered up the discount and I didn't really need to haggle at all.  I'll take it!  We are getting 2 hours at the Cenote and 1 hour at the beach for that.  We do need to pay the cenote entrance fee ourselves though so that will be a separate charge.  


I think it would be worth at least emailing him and letting him know what you would like to spend.  He has been very quick with  responses and easy to work with.  Good luck!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
