    Great news that I just received this morning! Sandals will allow you to bring an outside photographer ! Please note that they have to be a guest at the same resort as the couple and for most properties the minimum stay is 2 or 3 nights!

    Good Morning Jennifer,

    If the wedding couple has a guest staying on our property we will allow them to take wedding photos. They must be a full paying client at the resort in which the couple is staying in order to be granted permission to take photos.

    Warm Regards,

      That is great Jennifer...but I contracted with Tropical Imaging to do my photos. Will they allow them to also come on site? I think it would be unfair if they allowed some vendors in but denied others. I would be even willing to pay a fee to allow them on property as doing my pictures offsite I will not get to capture pictures of my getting ready for my big day or pictures during my ceremony. This would really make my life alot easier if they will allow Tropical Imaging onsite.

        Hi Jennifer,

        Do you need to let the resort know prior to arrival?

          Thanks, TA Jennifer!

          Unfortunately, since I didn't think their rule on outside photographers was going to change anytime in the near future, I've already done research and have begun beefing up plans to do wedding photos after the ceremony off the resort -- BUMMER!

          But, that's awesome that you got clarification and passed on the information to all of us! You ROCK, and keep up the great work!

            That's great news - thank you for sharing!! I'm assuming that this applies to Beaches as well then??

              Hi Ladies!

              I've received a lot of emails from this post today and I just want to clarify-

              This is a huge concession for Sandals and they are not announcing it -just doing a slight change of policy.

              Originally is was no outside photography -at all, didn't matter if it was a guest or not. Now they are loosening the policy to say that if you have a guest staying at the resort that they can take photo's of teh wedding without any hassle.

              They are not allowing photographers onsite for the day, for a fee -at least not at this time.

              If you want to bring an outside photographer you would have to have them stay at the resort, as a full paying guests ( hence not as a day pass guest) for the minimum nights required (varies by property and season).

              I would contact your TA and have them flag the photographers booking with the WC.

              Yes, this does apply to Beaches!
