I don't know of any photographers in RM specifically but I know there is a thread with photogs in that area. Also, Jonathan Thrasher and Leigh Miller (who are on this board) specialize in going to any locale you want and their work is stunning. Plus they are both very nice and would be great to work with. Also, I highly recommend using Tammy (the host) as Tammy M. suggested. She is great to work with and will probably get you a better deal than most TA's would. Plus she had a destination wedding herself so she knows all the little intricate details that go into planning one. Good luck and let us know if there is anything you need help with.
Sanchez0014, I just wanted to point out that I am running a giveaway right now until Jan 31st. So I'd recommend taking a look at my post here:

Hi, I am getting married at the EDR in March and while I would recommend the resort to anyone, there are a couple of points I thought you should know.
The first as you have heard is that children aren't allowed (it's over 18 I think)
The second is that the EDR doesn't allow outside photographers unless they are a guest at the resort! Bummer I know!
Hope this helps let me know if you need any other questions answered (if I can!!)
As the girls have said Tammy(host) is really helpful and could probably help you alot.

I was really looking forward to using Claudia Rodriguez
I know the EDR does free weddings and that's a big bonus - but would switching resorts be an option at all? Our wedding package is only $1700 which is great for what it includes and it's a total kid friendly resort (kid's club, kid's waterpark, etc) but it's not PACKED with kids which is nice!

My company has to track hurricanes.
Yes, October is a spotty month. The hurricane season traditionally ends the end of November, but your risk decreases around the second week of November. If there is a big reason why it has to be in October, make it as late in the month as possible.
Here is an article - this is relative to Florida, but you might want to check these out: Hurricane 2003: October is scariest month for hurricanes
Hurricane timeline: 1990 to 2000: South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Most important - the national hurricane center has a ton of information including this section that allows you to search activity by month. Here's 2006 activity, but they have it for decades back: 2006 Tropical Cyclone Monthly Summary
Also, remember that it's not just hurricanes to consider but tropical storms as well. Should you decide to move forward with October, really go through your contracts and have them specify what they will/won't refund and what qualifies as a refundable occurrence (tropical storm of what magnitude). Also, have a rain contingency plan.
