    I was just reading that Tropical Pictures, the resort photographer for Dreams PC, charges $1000 for the rights to your photos. I was curious if that is on top of the package? We we looking at doing the $500 smallest package with them to save money. We were debating between them and Photo Souvenir, but Photo Souvenir's smallest package was $1200, but they include the rights to the photos in that charge. Obviously we would like to go with Photo Souvenir if Tropical Pictures is going to charge $1500..HELP!

      Where did they tell you that it is 1000 dollars extrs thats CRAZZZYY!!

      I am looking into my options right now and photosouviner is looking pretty good to me! I mean i have a tight budget but there 1250 package is a pretty good deal.... better than what the resorts offer....... But if you are really trying to save costs then ask them what the deal is?? Also I notice your wedding is a week away.... are you sure photosovenir is avaliable?? I know I have to fill this booking form out and all that if I want to reserve them................


      Good luck!!!!!!!!!!

        I saw someone else had posted on here they paid $1000 for the rights, I don't know if that was on top of their package or what. I e-mail Tropical Pictures to see what they said. I had PhotoSouvenir booked until about 3 weeks ago when I freaked out about money and cancelled! I don't really need 200 pictures, we are going to have so many guests taking picturs, I just want a few professional artsy shots to frame. I e-mailed photo souvenir this morning to see if they are still available!

            I am confused as to where you heard that Tropical Pics charges an extra $1000 for the rights to the pics? I haven't heard / seen this anywhere. I know that after choosing the package you can choose your photo's and then talk to them about getting all of them on a CD- but I didn't know that it would be that much?!

            I was most likely going to use them due to budget and then hope for the best also, but if you know more - please let me know!
            Thanks!

              hi ladies, i just came back from my wedding at Dreams.
              Tropical Pictures was onsite the whole time and i was able to view some of their work. They had posted a few of their wedding shots and they were nice, but nothing really shouted 'what a shot'. If you're concerned more about budget, then stick with TP. If stunningly beautiful pictures are more your thing, go with photosouvenir. TP pales in comparison.

                  I wonder who she decided to go with?! Her wedding is like in 2 days....she should've asked Photosouvenir if they could do a smaller package for her and her needs, I'm sure they wouldn't say no. lets see what she ended up doing, hopefully it all went well.

                      YEah- I am curious as to who she went with also. I emailed photoSouviner but haven't heard back yet.
