Bringing in a Photographer & hotel "day rates"...

Recommended Posts

We are currently in the process of moving our photography business down to Playa del Carmen in the beginning of 2009.

I have heard from a couple people about the hotels charging upwards of $500 to bring in your own photographer to the hotel to cover the wedding.

Has anybody had any experience with this and what the different hotels are charging?

Thanks for any info!

Our hotel The Azul Fives has a $500 fee per day if we decide to bring in any outside vendors. This applies to any Karisma resort..The Azul Blue, The Azul Sensatori, El Dorado Royale, El Dorado Seaside Suites..etc

We're getting married at the Barcelo Maya Palace and they say there are no outside photographers allowed, but my WC said it was no problem as long as they had the $75.00 day pass. So to answer your question, we're paying $75.00 for the pass.

Karisma resorts have the highest fees that I know of. Some resorts have preferred vendors. I think Dreams Cancun has a list of the only outside vendors they allow. Paying a day pass is fair.

The Dreams Resorts don't charge anything, unless the photographer requires drinks and a meal in which case you have to purchase the pass (can't remember the exact cost off hand, but like 50$ for half a day or something like that)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
