    Hi ladies- Do any of you know if you can bring a photographer in to do pictures? The reason I ask is I want to have pictures done the day after and I really don't want to pay $25 per picture above what I want from the package that sandals/beaches offers.

      Nevermind- I think I just had my question answered by looking at the changing venue post.

        You might be able to get some leniency (however you spell that) if you're doing them the day after...is it someone from home? Maybe just say it's a friend...if they don't know the photographer I doubt you'd have a problem. We used my husbands uncle to do our pictures and they didn't have a problem with it because he was family.

          I guess if it was me I'd do the day after pics outside of the resort! There are some amazing venues where you would get stunning pics- Beaches Boscabel is nice but why limit yourself?!

            Hey just wanted to give you some quick advice. I recently got married in May 2008 at Beaches Resort in Ocho Rios. As for the photography you might want to consider bringing your own photographer with you if you can. You can have your own as long as they are a part of your wedding guests. I feel I got robbed when it came to my pictures and ended up really upset and crying in the general manager's office because of this. The packages do not offer much variety and they are very costly. I would h ave alomost been better off using one of my friends with their expensive zoom cameras to take pics for me. They take so many pictures and then expect you to narrow them down to just a few depending on the package. After everything was said and done and I got back to the states I did get my album, digital negatives which I begged for, and got my DVD of the wedding which was great! Oh also they took pictures of us the day of the wedding then lost the sun due to unorganization, and then we had to get dressed the next morning and take all the beach shots.
