Hello -- my fiance and I are hopefully going to be getting married in Aruba at the end of this October (our scouting trip is planned for mid-May). I'm looking for a great photographer. I've been looking at sites of a few of the Aruba photographers I have found online and have not yet been blown-away. I'm looking for a photo-journalistic approach (as well as a few traditional shots for the family). Beyond that though, I'm looking for some 'art' and 'glam'. That's the part that has been missing in the portfolios I have come across so far.
Our original destination was Puerto Vallarta (canceled because of the violence in Mexico). While I was researching PV, I came across this photographer, Paulina Ulloa: (sorry - they won't let me post her link. its just her name dot com). Her work is stunning - every photograph in her gallery looks like it belongs in a fashion magazine. Her approach is artistic and final product truly striking - something I haven't found yet in an Aruba photographer. I've seen very nice work from Aruba, but not yet this kind of "Wow". If you know of a photographer that can compete with this, please let me know! I'd really rather save the expense of bringing someone in from the states. Thanks.
Thanks Jinxy. Do you have a link to the album? We haven't chosen a photographer yet. The one I want is beyond my budget at the moment. I'm looking for someone with a real artistic eye (in the original composition, not Photoshop - I've worked in Photoshop for 10 years and can spot it a mile away). She sounds like a great person that loves what she does. We're considering hiring someone to do an engagement photo for us when we visit next month. Christene
We were married in Aruba in January and we used Angela Munzenhofer as our photographer. She was absolutely amazing and alot of fun to work with. My husband hates getting his picture taken and she made him enjoy doing it. We used the wedding planner, Indira from Aruba Fairy Tales, who was also fantastic. The photographer was included in the package we chose. Angela even put a full page spread about our wedding in the local newspaper.
