We've just been through the whole "vendor/non-vendor" thing ... we were quoted $300 for a vendor fee, but if we have our photographer stay over night (very handy for TTD the next day), we only pay $132pp (double occupancy). I think that's the way we're going to go - haven't totally decided yet. We've only booked the photographer until 6pm, so I feel badly that they're going to have nothing to do all night! Well, I guess there are worse places in the world to have nothing to do all night ...
Bottom line - if your photographer is a 'guest', no matter for how long, you don't need to pay the vendor fee. Or, at least that's how I understand my particuar arrangement.
Hope that helps!

Question about photography: I saw a ways back someone mentioned buying their photog a room for the night to avoid fees....What about if your photograper truly is a guest? I plan to fly my photographer fromhere in Alberta, so she would stay for a week just like my other guests. Does she still get pegged as a 'vendor" I wonder?
Hope I'll be joing you ladies soon on this forum as an offical "planning" bride
