We are also using Merrick Cousley. Chandlyn told me there would be a 75 dollar charge unless he is a guest of the hotel for the night. I emailed Merrick and he said that the travel costs do apply as he has to stay overnight because of the distance from his home. Therefore, you wouldn't have to pay the 75 dollars for the resort to have an outside photographer as he will be a guest, but you will still have to pay his travel fees.

all day coverage - preparation to reception
dvd with all images (300 to unlimited) high res
his brochure says a travel fee is applicable but in one of his emails he said it was included with my package, so I want to double check. but for $350 more you get 150 4x6 prints, 3 8x10 matted prints, a wedding album that holds 200 4x6 prints and 3 months of a family online gallery to share all the pics
so I think both are comparable in terms of price
i'm curious about the OOT bags too??? I'm trying to figure out how to transport them along with all the other stuff... and what do you do for the older people? they won't care about flip flops lol I checked on ordering travel mugs and they ain't cheap!! not when you only need a small number of them. so hey - I'm open to ideas and suggestions!!
