    During our New Years visit we paid for the TTR on-site resort "Breathless Photos". The pictures were very nice, but they also came with some serious sticker shock. When they presented the pictures and an outline of their price structure, I asked how much that was in US $. Their reply was "That is in US $'s" LOL.
    There is a freelance photographer that has some sort of deal worked out with the resort. Another couple hired the freelance photographer and their price was close to the same as the resort photos, but they received 100 pictures and 3 hrs of his time and we only received 30 photos and about an hour and a half of picture taking time.
    I tried searching for "photographer" in the Cancuncare search option, but it came up with 0 matches. Does anyone have the contact info for the the freelance photographer? I would like to set something up in advance of our trip coming up in July.

    Hi Tim and Brenda!

    Did you end up working with the guy Steve recommended? If yes please let us know how it went. I did the shoot with Breathless two years ago and they were phenomenal. The guys name (who is no longer with Breathless, sigh) was Abraham. Super nice, very respectful and professional. And he spent A LOT more time with me than they told me he would. We ended up getting together 3 times total for all the shots he wanted to do. A bit pricey for everything, yes, but it was so worth it. We got about 100 photos, a large hardcover book, 6 large prints (to hang on wall), and a slideshow DVD for somewhere in the ball park of $650 USD. Abraham spent between 3-4 hours total with me over the course of 2 days. Needless to say, we were very sad when we returned in 2016 and he was no longer there!

    Hope you got yours done, and I’m sure they turned out brilliantly if you did! xo
