  1. LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

    Local vendors love acting as tour guides for their couples and sharing their insider knowledge for their home turf. Local vendors often know some of the best locations and will know about any special permissions or permits that might be required to go there. They are proud of where they live and do their best to make sure the couple has an amazing experience whilst also respecting the local community, 

  2. THE LEGAL SIDE

    Did you know that a lot of people who work on destination weddings do so illegally? Hiring someone who is not Los Cabos local and who doesn’t have a permit to work in your destination can be a massive risk, even if no money is changing hands overseas. For photographers and videographers especially, this can be a very dangerous game, and unfortunately too many vendors are not upfront about the fact that they will be travelling on a tourist visa when accepting bookings. And while on many occasions the risk pays off, in the worst cases they can be refused entry, arrested, fined or deported if they don’t have the correct work permits. Whoever you hire, it’s so important to make sure that everything is legal – including whether their contract and insurance (especially liability insurance) covers them for working in your destination.

  3. LOCAL CONTACTS

    Hiring local Cabo vendors, you’ll get the benefit of all of their local contacts. Los Cabos Destination wedding planners who work with local suppliers on a regular basis will often be able to get better deals, and should something unfortunate happen leading up to the event, they’ll probably have a number of people they can call on to help out.

    We all like to pretend that nothing will ever go wrong and everything will be perfect on your Cabo wedding day.  

    But the reality is that sometimes, things happen.  An accident can shut down roads and make it impossible to get from point A to point B.  A thief on the beach can slip away with an entire bag of gear.  Your photographer can be randomly walking down some stairs and fall and twist her ankle (true story!).  

    When these things happen, you want someone who can fix the problem, find a backup, and quick!  Being part of the community means having an instant rescue network.

  4. SPEAKING THE LOCAL LANGUAGE

    Definitely this isn’t limited to just local vendors, as you don’t need to be local to somewhere to speak the language. But having vendors that speak both English and Spanish language can be a big help, both running up to you Los Cabos Wedding and on the day.

5. IT´S CHEAPER

Many destination photographers (or those who are willing to travel to document your big day) hold their clients responsible for their travel expenses in addition to your chosen package. Some photographers will provide their quotes with travel already included and some will provide quotes without travel and stipulate that travel expenses will need to be reimbursed on your final balance bill.
