That's good to know the raw footage is an option.  I have a friend who does editing for a living, so I could definetly have him edit the raw footage if I had it all. 

 

I haven't decided which resort I am getting married at yet.

    I'm very interested in this topic too - getting married at Beach Palace in September and I need to book my photographer. I'm definitely not using the resort photographer, they just aren't up to my caliber. I've corresponded with several photographers in the Cancun area that I like. I just don't want to have issue on the day with this. On that note, would anyone care to share the approximate cost of their photographer? This is something that I don't want to skimp on but I also don't want to get robbed.

      For those of you who have gotten married recently at Beach Palace and used outside photographers, how did you go about it? Did you just buy a day pass and it was fine or did you get it written into your contract? I'm trying to get it written in currently, so any tips?

        you don't need it written in the contract, however, what i did was get it in writing that it was okay for me to use an outside photographer. you could have your WC send you an email saying its okay.

            My wedding coordinator, Lauren, replied in writing that it's okay to used outside vendors if they are guests of the wedding and staying at the resort which is NOT what I want so I am continuing to work this out. I want to use local vendors that will not be staying at the hotel. Ultimately the resort wants to make sure they get a nice chunk of the revenue either through the mark up of their preferred vendor or by an outside vendor being an overnight guest. Hellllooooo we have 21 rooms booked already, I think we're bringing a nice chunk of revenue! Sheesh!

              Hi! I also wanted to book with the Beach or Moon Palace, but the Beach Palace contact (Janina) told me the photographers would have to be guests of the resort and staying at the resort.  Did anyone find a way to get around this recently?  I really wanted to go with the Palace Resorts, but if they don't realize photography is one of the most important elements of the wedding experience, they may not be a good venue after all.

               

              Thanks!

                I'm getting married at the Cancun Palace and I have hired an outside photographer. I only have to purchase the day pass for the photographer and his assistant. I just held firm about the photographer and they agreed to my request. Unfortunately, Palace likes to change their outside vendor rules and allowances on a whim. Good luck!

                  Thanks! I'm going to see if I can try to talk them into allowing our own photographer. I just read a series of unhappy reviews about their in-house photographers and unfortunately not being able to choose our own photographer would have to be a deal breaker for us.  Thanks for the tip and best of luck with your wedding!!!

                    Palace Resorts used to not let any outside photographers in at all. They recently changed the rules to where you can do a day pass or book them a night at the hotel. I asked a couple people at Sun Palace Resort and they said it would be fine. I would get it confirmed just in case before you book the photographer. But this is why all the outside photographers say they can't work at Palace Resorts from past experiences.
