      Has anyone else given their photog a guest pass for a Sandals or Beaches resort?  I'm considering do in this with a local photographer....I figured I can still say she is a guest since I do have a few friends who are locals attending the wedding.... Please let me know what you all thin.k

        I have been to many different Sandals resorts and as a professional wedding photographer that likes to go there for my vacation, I could easily work out travel costs and offer a great rate! Everyone else is right. The photographer has to be a guest and not a "vendor".

                  I have now done 6 Sandals weddings and have not have a problem with any. 


                  My brides will pay for 3 nights room for me and an assistant and it 100% has to be on resort so if any issues arrive, I can at least say, hey, I am a guest here. 


                  My last sandals Antigua wedding my bride also hired an outside florist and beforehand told her coordinator in an email, she even had this email printed and in her binder just in case.


                  So, overall, you can get around it. I personally believe if you are paying for their room at the resort, the photographers are well experienced and know how to handle such a situation, you will be fine. My first sandals wedding I was worried out of my mind. The resort photographers took the couple for nearly an hour for pictures and left me with little light in the day. I was able to pull it together for another 15 mins of shooting and got amazing shots. 


                  Good luck!!

                      It has been done. it was posted on here a few months ago. Sadly, I have NO idea where the thread is.
                      If i recall, the bride had the photographer as a guest at their wedding (paid for a three night stay). Then the bride discussed with the wedding coordinator how the photographer was simply a friend that wanted to also take pictures. I believe they still had to allow the Sandals photographer to do their thing, but the "guest" photographer was still able to capture everything perfectly.
                      I would talk to the wedding coordinators and see if you could go that route.
