    Please list any photographers that are based out of Jamaica. Trying to get ideas and narrow them so I can figure out who to book.

      I did a quick search for Jamaican wedding photographer and didn't really come up with any Jamaican based photographers. Sorry I couldn't get a list for you.

      There may be reasons to why there aren't many that show up in searches, either there just aren't many to begin with, or maybe there the photographers that are there, aren't much to be spoken about in terms of quality and style?

      Why are you limiting yourself to only Jamaican based photographers? Is it only because of budget? I think you'd be very surprised that you could find hundreds of amazing photographers that are willing to travel to Jamaica and put together a package that would still be within your budget. Don't let having to fly a photographer in scare you. Sometimes it's really not as expensive as it sounds and it could be worth it's weight in gold if it means having better photos.

          As much as I would love to fly someone down, I don't have that large of a budget to work with.

                Hey Amanda - the Riu is letting you hire from outside?? Riu in Ocho Rios says an outside photographer needs to be a guest at the hotel. Otherwise, we need to use the resort photographer.

                  Hey Heidi! How are you!!

                  This is the photographer that they use onsite. The RIU actually gave me this person's information. i guess they have a contract or something with them.

                  Our package came with like 24 or 36 pics. My dad is a professional photographer as well, so he will be taking pics as well.

                  happy planning :)

                    How about Glen Johnson. He's pricy but, maybe you can work something out with him. Maybe he'll be in Jamacia shooting another wedding during the sametime so you can cutt down on the travel costs, or maybe you can get someone else from this forum who's getting married within the same timeframe to split the travel costs.
