    I hired Paula & Damian as well - I think their photography is amazing - once the wedding is over, all you have are your pictures - once I added up everything that I wanted from the other Jamaican photographers, it came out about even. Paula has been extremely responsive and super sweet - she just sent me a slideshow of a wedding at my resort because it's newer than most and she wanted me to see how the pics came out there. The level of customer service makes her worthwhile to me as well. You get what you pay for.

      Yes I agree they are nice and quick to respond but there are others out there if you look! Their pictures are nice too, but really $4-8000 canadian is purely insane. I am in the process of booking with Brian Nejedly is is very quick to respond, very nice and very afforadable! If all you have left after the wedding is pictures then that is not too good?? I hope to have a lot of wonderful memories and a beautiful tan to boot LOL

              Hi Jersey Kitten
              I am actually getting married April 2010 as well at the GP Lady Hamilton!!! I was just reading the post about Sun gold were thinking of booking them but Paula and Damian are booked for our day April 28th so we will need to use there associates. Are you worried about the resort and how were are not suppose to use the local photographer's. Just wondering how you feel about this as Paula told me they know everyone its a small town so we may get charged from the resort. Just wondering if you have heard anything on what would happen? Is True Colors that bad do you know?

              Thanks Lisa

                  Hi Lisa,
                  I am getting married at the Palladium in October and have booked one of Sungold's associates (RS). I have booked the photographer a room at the resort so he will be a guest of the hotel (I don't think they can do much about that because the room in paid for). Paula told me that would be the best route to go. She also said she doesn't think we will have any issues because they have done a few weddings there already. Not sure about you but I know I have not read or signed anything from the resort saything that I cannot use an outside photographer. I am not planning on telling them as the photographer will be a guest of the hotel.

                  Have you looked at True Colors website? I don't think their pictures are that bad but the photos are really important to me so I wanted to go with a photographers whose pictures I really love. Plus I didn't want to be limited by the number of pictures taken (True Colors packages go by number of pictures instead of hours). Hope that helps. I will let you know how things work out with the photographer and the resort.

                    Hi Jane

                    Thank you so much for replying I really apperciate it. This makes me feel so much better! I think Im gonna book with Sun gold.
                    Did you have to pay for the room for the photographer ? How did you book it through your travel agent or did you contact the resort?

                    Thanks
                    Lisa

                      Lisa - I sent you a message via your personal email yesterday.

                      I don't think you need to book a room for your photographer - Paula told me she has had no issues getting into Grand Palladium to do photography. When I asked her about it she said:

                      "We have photographed at Grand Palladium and never had a problem, so not sure what rule your speaking about. We have always just checked in, maybe that is why we never had a problem. In fact I was told by one bride that they recommended us, so go figure."
