    I will be booking my wedding soon at the Couples Negril. I just found out that they have changed there policy for outside vendors. They are now charging 500 for an outside photographer!!!!! I can't afford that!!! What I am going to do. I don't want the resort photographer, not the best pictures in my opinon.

    What can I do, any suggestions? This is making me reconsider Couples!!

      WOW! That's pretty steep.

      Were you planning to hire someone in JA or bring a photog with you.

      I got married at CSA under the old policy, but my understand was that as long as that person was a guest of the resort for 3 days or more you wouldn't have to pay any extra.

        I was going to hire a photographer in jamaica. Now I just wrote to one of them to know if maybe we could do just the TTD outside the resort.

        Don't know what else to do

          I had an outside photographer under the old rate but contact your photographer b/c i read that many will split this vendor fee with you.

          I would ask them if you still have to pay the fee if a guest of your wedding takes the photos for you. Explain it to them as a dear friend of yours is a pretty good photographer and they have graciously given their services to you as a wedding present. They will be staying at the resort and attending all wedding festivities. Do you still have to pay the fee? AKA... you fly in your new "best friend photographer" for your wedding and they take your photos.
          I think those types of fees are more for if you hire a photographer from jamaica. I would double check with the resort.

            It is a shame you are not gonna be on the other side of the island. I saw some AMAZING TTD pic from Dunns River falls. They were beautiful but too bad they were from after my wedding or I would have stolen the idea!

              All is now well. The photographer says she is paying half of the vendor fees. So I was able to convince my hubby to be that it wasn't so bad... So everything is now booked and we are laeving in 83 days...Now gotta find a dress!!
