    Okay, I am so upset right now, so I will try to keep this coherent. I booked my wedding at Dreams Puerto Aventuras (opening in late fall/winter '0 and have had contact with the wedding coordinator since July. When I spoke with her about hiring my own photographer I was told no problem. Through this forum I heard about a policy at my resort stating that you can only use non-mexican (non-resident) photographers and they have to be guests of the resort. When did this happen? I was told it is some contract they have with the photographers union?? Where is it in writing and why weren't we (brides of DPA or Dreams if it is a resort thing) told this? I cannot afford to bring a photog with me. Not only is it not in the wedding budget, it is not in my "life" budget...but thats a whole nother sob story. The point is, why aren't these resorts totally up front with us and why do we get bounced from WC to WC with each one telling us something different? It seems unfair to me.

      This is all just a miscommunication between the WCs. If you were told that you could bring in a photographer (like I was) then they will let you. I know what I was told and have 2 emails in which Natalia says I can bring in my photographer, one of which I state her name. I really don't think there is anything to worry about. I emailed Natalia about it just to let her know that brides are being told two different things. If you noticed, its the brides that have spoken to Natalia that said its okay for outside photographers to come in and the brides that spoke with Jacy were told only foreigner photographers can come in.

      Once Natalia gets back to me I will let all the DPA brides know what she says, but until Natalia and Jacy get things straighten out, don't get upset over this. There are other things we need to be working on! (I'm working on my invites!)
