Photographers: Sandals' website says I can't hire outside vendors!

Recommended Posts

I ran into the same problem with Beaches Negril. However, I have written permission from the wedding coordinator that our "family friend" who is a photographer will be allowed to photograph our wedding. However, this photographer must be a guest of the resort, so we are flying ours in from the states.

WOW.... Which coordinator gave you thishuh.gif Because I tried to get the skinny on this when I first looked at Beaches ... and they would not move at all on this. Granted my day is over and done with.... and Beaches is seriously amazing... So enjoy and have a wonderful time!!

I agree with Tod that the reason why the resort would want a photographer of their own is for money reasons. They want to capture the revenue from it.


Most of the resort photographers are so used to doing this at that particular venue and are so used to the venue squeezing out their profits that I don't see how most of the shots they get are a copy-paste version from all their weddings.


That being said I think it makes total sense for a bride and groom to want to have the photographer with the style they want for what's going to be probably one of the most important moments in their life.


Should the couple have the right to ask for a premium to be paid to bring an outside photographer?


Has anybody asked for this to the Sandals people?


On the other side I agree that a Bride and Groom photoshoot will be very nice to capture the beuty and feelings of them both.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
