    I would check you hotel and ask your coordinator there about Claudia before booking her and going just on what I said.

    But below is a conversation between myself and my wedding coordinator at EDR:


    I WROTE:
    I have been made aware that Claudia Rodregiez is one of your EDR choices for photographers. So, I am curious, in talking to other brides who have been given this option, why am I still being changed a $500 outside vendor fee. I was under the impression that if you used one of the choices EDR offers, there is no monetary penalty. Please let me know if I will also have this fee waved, or if I have to pay it and if so, why.

    SHE REPLIED:
    That is correct, Claudia Rodriguez is part of our staff of photographers and if you requiere her services the 500 USD fee does not apply.

        I was under the impression that this was only a concern if the person hiring you lived in Mexico?? Thier gov website w/ the info on it can be found here. The second line says, "The company, institution, or person in Mexico that intends to employ you must process your working papers with the National migration Institute."

          When I shot in the Bahamas recently, I had to get a work permit - it's explicitly for non-nationals. The big picture is that it prevents immigrants from taking unskilled jobs away from existing citizens. But for infrequent, skilled jobs like this it's just a pain in the butt.

              This is the information I received from my resort

              These are the requirements for bringing in an outside photographer into Mexico for photography:

              • Mexican citizen requires: RFC (Registro Federal de Contribuyentes), 3 nights hotel or $500.00 US plus

              • Non Mexican Citizen: Mexican working visa, FM2 or FM3, RFC, 3 nights hotel or $500.00 US

                Also, Check out Del Sol Photography. They have some associate photographers that might save some money.
                I am using Elizabeth Medina- very excited.

                  Del Sol is great however they are banned from Karisma resorts.

                    What gets a wedding photographer banned from a resort?

                      I don't know what her wedding prices are - but Elizabeth Medina rocks the house. She photographed my husband and me the last time I was there to photograph the wedding. She is awesome!
