    Hey ladies. I just found out about this rule. Until now the Palace has been my first choice with the Riu Palace running a far second. Not only do they have this incredulous rule, but apparently their on site photographers are crappy. Decisions decisions decisions. I really feel like I am running out of time but I am not happy with the two choices I have. any suggestions? The wedding is scheduled for Jan 17th.

      Seems a lot of the hotels have this policy now. Some let you pay to bring in a photog, or maybe you could sneak one in. Its ridiculous. Our hotel has the same policy and the photos are really important to me/ However I have seen some photos from the moon palace and they were actually very nice indeed, i was shocked!

        You could bring a photog from home and pay for them to stay at the resort for a few nights...that way it won't be a problem....and you could fit in a TTD session too :P

          The resort photogs were terrible btw...not GREAT but not bad...

          Obviously not Leigh Miller quality or anything like that, but we just went offsite for some photos of DH and I and had the resort photogs do our ceremony.

            Really? This is our first choice two, but for Febraury. However, we are planning on taking a photographer from home, and paying for her stay there. Do you think that they would have anything against that?

              Heather...thats actually what i am looking into doing now. What Im finding is that while there is a slight difference in price, its totally worth the extra quality that is guaranteed. I dont want to take any risks in this department... I hope the plan doesnt backfire :)

                  Are you being facetious?

                    He has shot weddings with Leigh. But maybe he has a bad memory

                      I'm getting married at the Moon Palace, Jan. 17, 2009

                      I've seen pics from other brides who used the resorts photog. The pics aren't horrible, but it's not the same as when you hire your own professional.

                      Betsy is actually there now, getting married, and using the resorts photog.

                      You can bring your own photog, but they can't be from Mexico. So you'd have to fly them down and put them up.
