Beaches Negril Photog????

Recommended Posts

Ok so i am a bit confussed about something and its a pretty big thing:

If i am getting married @ beaches negril do i have to use their photog??

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

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!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
