- Wedding: October 2013
For months I have been searching for just the right photographer. I was this close to hiring one but he didn’t seem eager to produce a contract and after some thought and helpful advice here:http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/no-contract-with-dw-photographer-thoughts#axzz2c5pLSSbi we thought “no”. I was getting really nervous since we are getting married in less than 60 days out and it was bare bones picking in Montego Bay.
Most places were absurdly expensive, for it just being us 2, while others failed to “wow” us with the pictures. I was beginning to think I would have to settle with the hotel provided photography.
Then I found Sun Gold Photography. First, I realized they were different because they had both a Jamaican AND a US number. How nice! Then I emailed and got a very fast response, with a really nice voice behind it. That voice is Paula, one of the owners.
It turns out they had our day open (YIPPEE!!!) although all of October was booked and they were exactly what we wanted. Here are the deets:
– Owned by a husband and wife team – She is from Texas and he is from Jamaica
– They shoot all over Jamaica and other parts of the Caribbean and have 2 associates
– She started a professional association of Jamaican photographers about 3 years ago
– She is a huge supporter of empowering others in Jamaica about common business practices found in the US, to make Jamaican photographers more “marketable”
Plus!! We get an e-session here in our home state, as we are driving there. I thought that dream was long gone but she’s able to pull it off.
I will definately post pics and updates in the coming months. However, if you are looking for a good, solid possibility, check them out!
