All colour photos can be converted to B&W, it's very easy and can even be done when you go to the printer. On the other hand, you can't shoot in B&W and than convert to colour. You should have no problem with having the photographer shoot in colour only - it's like getting twice the photos for the price of one!

They would only give the digital pictures in color. I'm sure you could get them in black and white. They did show us a lot of pictures in black and white but said it would be a waste to give us pictures only in black and white when its so easy to convert them on your computer.

I am also very concerned about the photos. I saw a few and some were nice and others were not the best. It wasn't the best quality. I guess it depends on your taste. I want very artistic/ natural photos and less posed.

 

Since we ca';t choose our own photographers I guess you have to HOPE that you get a good one. I chose their biggest package, but am also going to try to do my best to bring in my own photographer as well since photos are my biggest concern. I don't want to risk it.

Hey JB,

 

I am also bringing my own photographer. She will be staying as a guest at my wedding, and I will decline any photography from Sandals, so my friend can do her thing without anyone in the way.  Pictures are SO important to me, and the Sandals ones I've seen are just okay snapshots, definitely not artsy or natural (my style).  I am super excited to have someone who I know will have my best interests in mind!

I do some freelance photography and am wondering if they'll let me take my own photos. I know I wouldn't be able to capture the ceremony, but I can easily use a tripod and a timer to get shots identical or better to the "candid" ones I've seen. I just can't see spending that kind of money for something I can do myself...thoughts?

I'm sure they will let you...you're the bride!!!  I just worry that will add to your stress.  I've also heard that the Sandals photogs can be kind of pushy/hard to work with when there is another photographer trying to get the same shots.  That's why I'm signing the form to opt out of the Sandals photography.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
