I don't think so.....

In this case, it IS illegal, is like a mexican photographer going to the US to work. But it's doable, some resorts ask you to have the Photographer staying with them because, sometimes, they have their own guy doing the photo session.
WHat the WC told you is, at some point true. The government IF they find out, has to go through a very long process, and they would they won't cancel the wedding since the only person that is breaking the law is the photographer, but in order for the government to find out, they would have to be warned ahead of time and given the exact, date, hour and location.
Also, there is a the option of filling the permit at the airport, like a "day pass" and with that you're safe on that issue.

In mexico - we "Expats" jump through MAJOR hoops to be able to immigrate here and to legally work here. Also we pay ALOT of taxes to the Hacienda (IRS) on our income...
It just seems unfair to a lot of us that outsiders come in and work in our market and also don't have to pay taxes on what they are earning.
That said, if you are convinced that your out-of-town Photog is the one for you - don't tell anyone that they are getting paid... Say they are a friend and leave it at that...
It is illegal to work in Mexico without proper documentation. Just to clear up any ambiguity...

I would get the proper paper work done and have the photog be legal. Stuff like this can spiral out of control, especially if you are a guest in someone else's country. Could you not get it and still be fine? Probably... but is this something you really wanna risk to save $100?
