The Barcelo has changed its rules about outside vendors, however, I have been told that as long as the photographer is a paying guest at the resort, they are allowed....
just wanting to clarify for future Barcelo Maya girls

But I don't want to mislead anyone and would suggest for all future brides to Please clarify with the Barcelo wedding coordinators about their new policy before booking your photographer as I have also read news about changes.....
It seems really rather unfair for Barcelo to make these changes, particularly since they do not even offer photography as part of their wedding packages. Unless they have changed their inclusions for 2010 (I'm still waiting to see the prices and inclusions for the 2010 packages) Anyone have these new packages yet??

As we are getting married at a Sandals resort, and they have pretty strict photography policies, we are going to purchase the smallest package they offer and the waaaayyy over-priced DVD of our ceremony. Then, after we have our short cocktail reception, we have made arrangements with an American photographer (Brian Nejedly!!!) THAT LIVES in Ocho Rios, Jamaica to take us and a few of our guests OFF THE RESORT property to have a combination portrait session (with the fam) and then a short TTD with just John and I! We were able to work out a package that was just over $1000 -- and since he lives there, we don't have to make any travel arrangements! WIN-WIN!
I'd say do your best to figure out a way to get a great photographer; trim your budget elsewhere or get a little creative like we had to! In the end, your pics are one of the few things you'll have left to remember your special day, so I think it's totally worth the investment if you can swing it!

The benefit to local photographers though is that they know their area and will know about places your flown in photographer might not. Anyway - we lucked out with a family friend that is going to do our photos for us as her gift to us, but even if that weren't the case I think photos is one of the few areas to not hold back! Just my opinion. =) This is the day I expect to feel confident and beautiful and want that captured as well as the emotion in all those moments.
I will admit though, that I was a bit hasty in ruling out the local photographers - after I had made other arrangements a local guy came to my attention that looks pretty good.
