      I am getting married at Beaches Boscobel, and had the same questions. All their rules are the same. You can only use their photographers, who will remain nameless and/or portfolio-less until you arrive at your hotel right before the wedding. The only way they allow outside photographers is if you will pay for their 3-night stay at the resort.
      I have debated trying to sneak a local photographer in, but will not now due to the amount pre-wedding stress it will cause. There is a thread about this on the Sandals/Couples board.

        from what i have heard they know all the good local photogs and ask them to leave. Could you imagine losing all that money

        i posted something on my friends FB page (cause i dont have FB yes the only person in the world!!) looking for someone to maybe trade the trip for photo.... I have gotten tons of replies! I made sure to stress i am looking for a professional photog.
        we will see what happens, maybe it will work out

            good luck with that
            some resorts are really strict about that

              You do not have to use the Sandals or Beaches photographer- you can bring in your own as long as they stay at the resort you are getting married at for at least 3 nights!

                We decided to fly someone in becuase pictures are the most important thing to me and I could not deal with the stress of not knowing what you are getting with their photographers. Their prices are pretty high too with the different packages. I would suggest definitely doing some research on photgraphers that would be willing to do your wedding to build their portfolio. I think you might be surprised at the prices they will quote to be able to do a destination wedding. Good luck!
                Hey Everyone! I have booked Heather Parker to photograph my May 7, 2011 wedding in Negril, Jamaica. I am looking for someone that might want to share in the cost of her transportation/stay that will be getting married around the same time in the area. PM me if you are interested! Her work is...
