how long did you book your photographer for?

Recommended Posts

Our photographer and videographer are coming to Samana from Punta Cana. I am not sure how long the trip is, but they will have to stay at the resort the night before the wedding and the night after. So they are there for getting ready, ceremony, group pictures, and we added on the reception too, plus TTD the next day!

 

Yes, a lot... it was also our priority though. So I am happy with the decision. :)

We booked our own photographer (Saab Weddings) for 4 hours, but our wedding package also includes a resort photographer. Using the resort option made me nervous since I wouldn't be able to see a portfolio of work ahead of time, so I'm glad we have Saab as our primary photo source. Another bride had a great idea for the resort photographers that are included, which was to have them get shots of all the guests so we can have them for a guestbook/scrapbook later. That's the new plan. Hopefully 4 hours with Saab will be enough! We're not planning a TTD.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
