Will I ever find a decent photographer in Jamaica within my budget?

Recommended Posts

I am starting to get worried that we are not going to find a photographer (and by we I mean me, b/c he could really care less) or that I am going to have to settle for a less than mediocre one. We have a really tight budget, but photography is really important to me. I have found out that there are very few decent photographers in Jamaica (correct me if I am wrong please), and those that seem reputable are outrageous. Am I absolutely crazy to think I can find a decent photog for 3 hours of coverage for a 30 people group for less than $1,000 in Ocho Rios? I have tried Sungold and they are booked, and our next best option is Brian Nejedly whos work is nice but just not my vision. I guess I just need to lower my standards to match our budget sad.gif Any ideashuh.gif Thanks in advance.

Is there anywhere else you could save some money and go w/out and get a photog? I think that photography is an area that shouldn't have a tight budget at all and should be a place to splurge... its what you get ot keep w/ you forever. I believe that I have one of the cheapest photographers in RM and I'm having photography for 2 hours and ttd session the next day and its about $1200. I think I only got her because my wedding is a whole year away.

I think it is possible.


You might want to ask other brides in the area who are getting married on the day before or day after to 'share' a photographer.


Alternatively, you may want to ask some traveling wedding photographers if they are booked for your weekend and if they would do it for airfaire, hotel, and a small fee.


Feel free to PM me if you have any other specific questions.

There are a few more Jamaican photographer suggestions in this thread:



I think that was a good suggestion to see about sharing a photog with another bride who will be there the same week as you..


I attached a price list I got from one JA photographer, and Misha Earle is a Jamaican photographer on this board.

I'm using Misha for my TTD session. I'm getting married at Beaches and you are not allowed outside vendors so I am stuck with who they have. We are going to CSA still in Negril and then during our HM part I will be doing my session with Misha. So far she has been super great and I feel confident in her work. Hope this helps.

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
