Photographer for Sandals wedding

Recommended Posts

I have photographed at the Atlantis and also Moon Palace where it states no outside vendors. The brides simply told the coordinator that I was a friend and it was fine. We had a blast at both weddings! Good Luck and feel free to ask questions on the forum. Happy Planning :)

Like others have said, there is some great talent on this board and many brides have had experiences with them so you can always just ask around for feedback on certain photographers. I know there are photographers who can give good deals that want to get into DWs, so just poke around and you'll find a good match I am sure. Then just fight to make sure they can be there, haha. It does seem like a silly rule and don't know why they wouldn't just accept some fee to allow outside vendors?

Hi,

I was married last month in Beaches Boscobel and snuck in my own local photographer. I had to pay for a day pass for her and the pp reception ($25) fee. I am glad I did it even though it caused a ton of stress beforehand. We let the resort photog to do their thing, and did buy a few of their pics. They were not great and have orange overtones, but they were from different angles from where my photog was shooting. The whole staff knew what was going on but they were not going to upset a bride in her wedding dress. As long as you claim the photog is a friend and are respectful to the resort staff, it should be ok. Also, I gave the resort WC a $50.00 tip the next day. She was reluctant to take it but I told her I appreciated all her help and if she didn't take it, I would drop it in the hall on the way out, lol. Future unwritten rule...Ladies, if your WC allows outside vendors despite the resort rules, TIP THEM!!! We can start a ball rolling here!

You are to be applauded I hope more couples will take a stand against this bad policy.

I'm doing the same - paying for a day pass and my photog is a guest. He's done it before, and reminded me to send him an invite - so make sure yours has one - it helps them with customs (mine is coming from Van) and it proves to the resort they're just a guest who has a really nice camera :)

 

My photogs info is in my bio.

Actually the policy has been changed - if the photographer is a paying guest staying at the wedding resort for the minumum nights then they are welcomed and can take as many pics as tehy would like without having any stress or sneaking around!

We are getting married in July and just wondering if they have changed the rules about photographers with the new Martha Stewart packages

Photography is one of only a few physical items that couples will hold on to from their wedding day. It is a big responsibility to photograph a wedding and reception. The moments that take place during this event only happen one time. Taking photos at different angles is a good way to be creative as long as they are viewable to people without getting headaches.
