    Looking for an artistic PHOTOGRAPHER

    Hi! I will be in Aruba next Tuesday, Feb. 4th 2014 for a week. I am traveling with my 2 year old son and my husband. I am pregnant and would like to have some nice pictures taken of my little family, as well as, my growing belly. Can you recommend a good professional photographer? I absolutely hate tacky and cheesy pictures. I am looking for somebody who works with different lighting and takes candid photos.
    Thank you!!!

    I would check out the wedding category of the forum and read through the photography posts. There are many talented photographers on the island.

    I just wanted to follow up on my recent trip to Aruba. I went with my husband and our almost 2 and half year old son. We had the best vacation ever! I understand now why all those people keep going back to Aruba. We stayed at Hyatt Regency. Everything was great! The beach, service they provided, food and the grounds are gorgeous! Plus, everybody is super nice!

    I also want to highly recommend Roberto Arismendi and his wife Natalia De Windt who took our family/pregnancy pictures. They are absolutely stunning!!!! I love candid pictures and worked with few professional photographers in NY and NJ, and let me tell you Roberto's pictures are one of the nicest I've seen! I have received countless compliments, and I am so so so happy to work with this couple! They picked us up at our hotel in the morning and took us to a location that I described to them I would like to have our pictures taken. They were sweet, professional, easy going and reasonably priced. They even brought few bottles of water for us which was great because I didn't think about bringing any water. They also brought a beach ball to start our photo shoot. That was the best idea as it helped us to loosen up for the pictures. They took us to 4 or 5 different locations as I told them I want pictures on a beach, in a water, next to the light house, rocks, old tree etc. They knew exactly where to go. The results are a high quality, high definition and stunning, romantic, fun pictures that are not tacky nor staged. What was also great about them was that they gave me a memory stick with all the pictures (369 pictures) right after the photo shoot. So the same day we were able to see all the pictures. They also emailed me few retouched pictures within a week via internet and told me that any picture I pick they can retouch and email them to me. I wish they were in Jersey or in NY, so I could have them to take more pictures of my family!
