    I saw on a different board that one bride was looking for another bride in her area close to her date who'd be willing to split airfare on the photographer she was bringing in. I hadn't ever heard of that, and at first I thought it was crazy (and cheap), but... I suppose it kind of makes sense, if the photog is willing. I'm just wondering if it would work or not- anyone have experience with this?

      There are many brides on BDW who have shared a photographer & it has worked well. A few of us Jamaica brides shared our photographer this past April.
      Try doing a search on photography & you may find the thread that was started regarding shared photographers.

        I do it all the time. It saves money for the couple and it means that I'm working in an amazing location for longer.

          I've heard of it as well and think its a great way to save some money. Plus, you'll be using someone who has more experience than the resort's photographer who may not be.

            I've heard of brides sharing their photog too.

            Here's one request from the Jamaica boards: http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t23573

            Oh yeah! Sharing photographers is a win win for both parties! Since airfare is typically the same no matter how many days you stay, it cuts that cost in half for both brides!
            From the photographers stand point, they get more experience shooting in a beatiful location and they get to make two brides extremely happy!
