Has anyone heard of Vincent Ribon a photographer?

happy friday! has anyone heard or seen any of Vincent Ribon's work? My Wedding coordinator is not allowing anyone else but Vincent to photograph our wedding...which i'm questioning "Who's wedding is it anyway?" Very annoyed when they force you to a photographer.

So,I'd thought i'd give it a shot here and see if anyone has seen his pics for weddings. I really like photojournalistic so, if he's the type that would sculpt you into certain positions, guess it's time to look for another Wedding coordinator...(geez, that just pisses me off...)

thanks anyone for any suggestions...oh, just to let you know i did a search already and found one...i need more info!
thanks,

You should be asking yourself this question very hard right now.

Haven't you seen a portfolio of his work? Does it fit what you envision for your wedding photographs? Has your wedding coordinator provided references for you to contact? You're getting "that feeling" for a reason. Push until you're satisfied. A wedding isn't a "do-over" event...and that goes for everything, not just the photos.

hi there,
there is absolutely no reason why your wedding coordinator should force you to do anything. the only places that don't allow certain photographers are the all inclusive hotels. she probably just wants to give her vendors the business. if you are getting any bad vibes from her then you should consider finding someone else. it's your day and you should have it the way that you want it. i have never heard of that photographer and yes, she should at least be able to provide you with a website and some references. my wedding coordinator tried to talk me into using a certain photographer, although she couldn't even give me a website. i just told her that i had already chosen my own. milissa marcelin ( i think that's how you spell her name) looks like she does great photojournalistic work. claudia rodriguez does both posed and candid. i'm not really sure of anyone else. email me with any questions if you have any.

I think I know this guy; if he is the French guy named Vincent. I went to a wedding recently that he photographed and was lucky enough to see the prints...he was terrific. He roamed around constantly getting great candids, and even his "formal" shots were pretty relaxed and not stiff. He was also fun and funny, and did a good job getting people to have fun when posing instead of that "deer in headlights" look that people so often get. He even managed to take a few really good shots of me, when I am the most unphotogenic person on the planet.

I'll second Heather's recommendation. I too was at that wedding. Although I have not yet seen the prints, I can say that Vincent makes everything fun. He did the photos for our office staff and had us laughing the whole time. It really showed in the shots that we were having a good time. I think that's important.
Oh...and Heather is photogenic.

I know Vincent, he has a gallery near Calle Corazon where his work is in display, he has excellent pictures Im sure he would be happy to send you some samples of his work and portafolio, His e mail address is zasilgraph at yahoo dot com He is also very funny but I guess that is just an added plus.

Vincent's one of the best photographers in Playa. He also does a lot of the fashion, editorial and PR event shots for local magazines.

He's very personable, which is great to get people relaxed.

I have to agree. He is a good photogapher.
Have seen several sets of photos that he did and all of them looked very good.
