And everything seemed to be great and positive comments. I also heard my resort photographers weren't very good either, so i went with Duane. I don't know much about his photographs, but i can tell you this. When i emailed him for a price quote, amongst others, he was the only one to explain photography to me, and what to look out for, what to expect. tips and tricks etc. His response time is great and he does accept Paypal if you are very worried about money exchange, not to mention his prices were great. I can let you know more when i come back in January.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!! DId you end up going with Duane afterall? Just wondering about his work? I booked him for my January 2014 wedding.
  3. When i was doing a photographer search Duane was the one who had the best pricing and when i put him to a family vote against 3 other photographer he won hands down.. I went ahead and booked him for my January 2014 wedding and his response time is great. I guess we will see how it goes?
  4. Hi Albellis Did you have to reserve early for the rehearsal/welcome dinner? Or did you do that upon your arrival? Any dissapointments with the Japanese restaurant? Thanks for your help!
  5. I keep hearing people talk about a Rehearsal dinner/Welcome Dinner? I was wondering if any one has done one? And how much are the cost? If any? And what did most people do after your dinner if you didn't opt for the private reception and Dj? No one wants the party to end at 8:30pm! Any feedback is grealty appreciated!
  6. That's such a great question. I seen all these bride having welcome dinners and rehersal dinners and i too was wondering if there was an additional cost to those? Since you are flying out of Ottawa as well i love to hear your feedback when you have your special day
  7. Hi Jaclyn Quick question? Did you have to pay for the terrace for cake/dancing? Did you hire a dj for that or just put your ipod on? Also where did you have your first dance? Thanks in advance
  8. Hi Albellis Did you have to pay for that cocktail hour? Is this cocktail hour something else aside from the champagne toast after your ceremony? or you can have 2 cocktail hours>? Any feedback will help! Thanks
  9. Hi Krista33 Thanks for looking into this for me... WHat i ended up doing is going through my contract they provided to me when i reserved my wedding date with a fine tooth comb. I did so much research for a wedding photographer i didn't want to see my efforts go to waste. So i finally found that based on my contract all i had to do was pay $100 +$75 "vendor fees" How they came up with that amount is besides me? So i provided that information to Santena and she wrote back that is was fine. If anyone is looking for the cheapest photographer prices in Jamaica feel free to message me. I spent a lot of time on this subject and finally booked a photographer. Now on to flowers.. lol
  10. Let me know what you find, ie: price, policy.. i did book my group back in November.. so i don't know if i fall under their "new" policy. I am still waiting on a reply back from them.
  11. Hi Krista 33 How did you manage that? And do you remember how much you paid for the fees and day pass? See below the wedding coordinator response? I don't understand why they would tell me one thing even though i seen on many photographer websites that taken pictures at the Iberostar? Dear Roxanne, For the photographer they must stay at the resort for a minimum of 1 night to do the wedding here. We do not have a vendor fee for the photographers. WE do not allow external florists to do weddings here Santena Blythe Wedding coordinator beach Coordinatora de bodas

WE do not allow external florists to do weddings here Santena Blythe Wedding coordinator beach Coordinatora de bodas This is the response i got back from Santena.. I agree with the comments above that it is our wedding day and we should bring in whomever we want. I did write back to the wedding coordinator telling her that it is a once in a lifetime moment and that i should be able to choose who i hire to capture that moment. I also porceed to tell her that i've seen on other wedding photographer websites pictures taken at the Iberostar resort. I am waiting to hear back i will keep you posted. But i thought i would check here first to see what everyone else did? I did get a price quote from many photographer charging a $350 vendor fee included in their photgraphy package, maybe that's where the 1 night stay($250) + guest pass($100) for the day is considered to be a "vendor fee". THoughts? I would hate to pay a deposit for a photographer that isn't allowed in?
  13. Did any one hire an outside photographer for the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach in Jamaica? I was asking then about vendors fees and they are telling me i can't bring one in, they would have to spend 1 night in order to take my photos. Any one have the same problems? What did you end up doing? Thanks for your help!
