Photographer Needed for Negril...Approx Cost?
Posted 24 March 2009 - 01:49 PM
I am have my wedding at a small resort outside of Negril. They offer photography for the wedding, but it is just someone random who works at the resort. I am interesting in bringing in my own photographer. I have seen so many beautiful pictures by local photographers and was wondering what I should expect to pay for various packages. Nobody seems to have pricing on their websites.
Can you guys tell me what you have found as far as pricing for local photographers? I did a search here, but all I found was comments about how expensive various people were (no actual price).
Also, for those of you having a reception, did you book the photographer to stay for the entire time, or just a couple of hours? One last question...for those of you that have done, or will be doing a TTD session, was that included in your package?
Thank you in advance for any help/suggestions!

Some of the photographers have packages with certain number of hours-and they would let you use 2 or so hours the day after for a TTD. HTH.

I too am looking in Negril. Cna I ask which resort you decided upon?

I think the packages will very depending on the photographer. For example some may charge 8-10K, while others may only charge slightly above cost of travel. The advantage of bringing your own photographer would be that you usually get more for your money. Most DW photographers will stay for 2-3 days so they are there for pre wedding activities, all day wedding coverage as well as a TTD session the day after.
With local photographers, you usually pay for packages. so it's usually a certain number of hours of coverage and such. I' am not familiar with the local photographer at your location, but that doesn't mean they won't give you great photos. Tt's really a personal choice.
Best of luck, and happy planning.
I'd suggest that you send the photographers an email that you are interested in.

Carinagirl, I was using Coral Cove, but changed my mind. I am going to Jamaica in a couple weeks to finalize my plans, but I will probably be using Coco LaPalm.

I am having a photographer from Jamaica named Brian Nejedly do my TTD session while at SOR. I got his name from a girl on this site. You can google him and he has an online price list and gallery. He's reasonably priced and takes great pics. Hope this helps you.

"Please note: Use of third party vendors for photography or other services that are offered by Beaches is strictly prohibited."
I'm worried about this. My gut tells me that their staff photographer isn't going to capture the artsy/creative type images that I'm looking for. So here are my questions - 1) Does anyone know how strictly Beaches enforces this rule? 2) Has anyone actually used the Beaches photographer and how did your pics come out?
