    I know some places have restrictions on bringing your own photographer. Is Dreams Los Cabos one of them? It's the one thing I am so close to booking and we really want her to come with us which she is willing to do for a great price, but if Dreams won't allow it we may have to find somewhere else.

    Any info is appreciated! Thanks!!!


    PS: I am SO happy I have found this forum ....I feel like it's going to make a world of difference when it comes to planning for our wedding!

      When I got married there this summer I do not believe they had any problems with outside vendors coming in. I do not know if things have changed yet though. Are you working with one of the WC there? They should be able to answer that for you or maybe someone on here knows too!

        I haven't booked anything with Dreams at all yet. I've exchanged a few emails with Mariana asking some questions but not in about a month or so. I will definitely make sure with her when we decide to book but I figured someone here might know.

        Thanks for your response!

          Hi girls - as soon your photographer is staying there as a guest there is no problem.

            If she decided to stay at a different resort, would it be an issue

            I have all outside vendors coming in for my wedding at Dreams Cabo, and none are staying there as guests. The resort allows for outside vendors, and actually the WC there has been super helpful in even giving me the names and contact info for a few of those vendors.

            We didn't do a package wedding, and we hired each vendor individually. Dreams is just providing us with the dinner, venue decotation and accomodations for the week. If you want to have some confirmation on this from them specifically, just email the wedding coordinators on site.

              The official answer is that any outside vendor wanting to work in Mexico requires working papers. To my knowledge the Canadian based photographer you fancy could not go and work in the U.S.... same with Mexico.

              I understand your penchant for wanting to bring down 'your own' photographer but you need to be mindful of the pitfalls. A blind eye has been turned up until now but I don't know how long that will continue as Immigration tightens up because of the economic turn.

              There are some fantastic photographers (videographers, wedding planners, officiants, florists, deejays, caterers, musicians etc.) right here in Cabo that have local knowledge that is advantageous for you... for your wedding photography.. for your peace of mind. Cabo has it all!

              Here is a link that lists many of those photographers.

              I did not post this reply to draw attention to myself as a photographer but rather to continue to give a voice to the great local talent.
