Hello, can you guys tell me who you used or are planning on using as photographers? I'm looking for a modern photojournalism style, but so far all I've found are the more standard wedding pictures. Thanks for your help!

I am using Fabian Alvarez. Hes independent (better price) and does "in the moment pics" I hate the standard all looking stiff pics. His number is FABIAN - FOTOGRAFO -3008440412

Thanks for your suggestions - I loved efeunodos' work and their rates but they are busy the wknd we were interested in. We will prob go with IKONOS since they are the only competitors we could find with the style we are looking for. They are very expensive - same as Washington, DC. Mostly because they don't have a variety of packages like we're used to in the States -all or nothing, each photo book is like $700 but service costs less - it all balances basically to a similar total. BUT BUT BUT their work is excellent. I got their recommendation from someone on this site. see their website: www.ikonosmedia.com

This one is tough for me. I am incredibly picky about photography (I often hire photographers in my job as a graphic designer) but I am also trying to watch the budget. I recently met with Dennis Drenner who lives not too far from me in the DC area. His work is amazing and he's a super nice guy. He has a Colombian wife and travels back and forth to Colombia all the time and speaks Spanish (important because my fiance's family doesn't speak much English). He even shot a wedding in Cartagena where the actress Rosario Dawson was a bridesmaid!

Unfortunately he is about twice as expensive as the local Colombian photographers I've found (he has a $4000 package and it looks like Eufenodos and Ikonos come in at about $2000 when you add everything up).

Another photo issue (while I am babbling away here) is the portraits. When I met with Dennis, he recommended doing a portrait session before the wedding to take advantage of the natural light. I somehow didn't think of this problem before, but most Cartagena weddings start after dark. Anyone else have thoughts on this one?

Maria,

I was just in Cartagena this weekend.. and we finally chose our photographer!:)

We absolutely loved efeunodos but the same thing happened with us they were booked the day of our wedding on May 28th... So we having been looking around like crazy!!!
Itala( my wedding planner) recommended this company..

She is from bogota as well. You will love her work.. BUT the main issue is if you bring someone from another city you also have to pay for there travel expenses.
Well we did the math and even if there rate is better you get a much better deal with a photographer from Cartagena..

So we met with a few while we were there and ended up changing our minds COMPLETELY and going with Antonio flores

He and his wife are extremely professional and after sitting there and seeing all of his work we were sold!

Also for his price compared to bringing someone from Bogota we could get a much better package... instead of paying that money for the other photographers lodging and travel.

Hi JB! How was your trip? What locations did you end up choosing for church and reception?

We're chose Antonio as our photographer too! He had much better prices than ikonos.

Can't wait to hear all about your trip!
