Here's my suggestion:
I am also getting married at a Sandals/Beaches owned property, and for these very reasons (SUPER HIGH prices, low photo quality, poor customer service regarding photography, etc.), my fiance and I have booked a photographer off the resort to do the bulk of our photos. We will just be purchasing the (6) 8 x 10 photos for $150 and the $500 DVD from Sandals of the ceremony itself, and that's it for our photo budget going to Sandals.
I couldn't see spending thousands of dollars for sub-par photography when a professional off-resort photographer was an affordable alternative. Brian Nejedly is an American Photographer that lives in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and he's agreed to have his associate do a 3-hour combination portrait/TTD photo session for us for only a little over $1000! I am pretty sure we are going to end up with at least 100 digital negatives, so we feel like we got the deal of the century....and will end up with photos we can be proud of and enjoy for years to come!
Hope that helps, since now I think you CAN bring in a photographer (the rules just changed recently), but they have to be staying there as a guest for a certain number of nights. Maybe check out Brian and see if he's still available? He's FANTASTIC to deal with and his work is pretty darn great for the price, too! Here's the link to his site, if you're interested:

We are following islandbrides317 idea, (thanks islandbride317) we will purchase some pictures from Sandals but the majority of our pictures & our TTD session will be from our outside photographer. We are using Frank Panaro out of Miami, Frank has done several weddings in Jamaica and knows his way around the island. Another bride on the forum has used him which is why i researched him.
Check out his website Miami Wedding Photographers â€“ Frank Panaro Photography and Video
We are on a tight budget but his prices are good and he provides you with references and external links to additional pictures. I hope this helps some.
