well i guess it all comes to budget and taste and how much you will value the photos down the line.
ive known couples who never looked at the photos hardly ever and then theres some that look at them constantly and have the photos all over their house and sent out copies to family who all enjoy them.
there are some great resort photographers and there are some terrible ones. you just have to do the research and mull over the budget and how much of the time down there you want photographed. some photographers will photograph just the day of and maybe a ttd and some will photograph every day while down there. when you break that down and consider that sometimes they are down there for several days its actually not a bad investment if you think of all the things you will have photos of.
i guess you just have to think about if the value of the cost of the photo memories will be to you. if you are the type of person to never really look at the pictures again then perhaps its best to invest the money elsewhere in the wedding. but if you are the type of person to take pleasure in seeing photographs from your wedding day after day then its a small price to pay to have a real professional there the entire time.
welcome again and happy wedding to you

I guess I don't really know....does the "hotel photographer" do just as good of a job or is it better to hire someone else? Please let me know! I'm lost! Thanks!

There is always the option to use the hotel photographer for the wedding & meet a local photographer off the hotel property for a photo session. It could either be between your wedding & reception if there is time. Or the next day for some trash the dress shots or just day after pictures together.
Search around the forum & you will find great photographers for every budget.
Some hotel photographers are good but others are not. I was not impressed by the option my hotel had.
Have you already booked this hotel? Another option would be to switch to a hotel that lets you pick your own photographer. I really hate the "no outside vendors" policies.
