You all had me worried with the 800$ fee so I email the resort yesterday. I just got a response from the resort today. They stated that I will need a 75.00 day pass for my photographer...I am printing all my emails and bringing them with me so I have some backup when I get there!!! Just in case!!!
If all I need is a day pass then anyone staying there should NOT have a charge to photograph your day! I just wouldn't tell them about it if that was the case.

I have gone through a lot of the posts so I know some! We reserved the steel drum band as well and will more than likely have a semi-private dinner and the gazebo/dj/bartender for after dinner and on to the disco! Our photographer is a family friend and she is a paying guest at the resort for 3 nights, 4 days and Chandlyn said we had to pay $800 for her, but she told me friends and family could take pictures? She is a friend, so this doesn't make sense. I refuse to pay $800. She said that the policy changed about 3 weeks ago on photographers. Anyway, I look forward to hearing stories and love all of the information I have come across about the Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica! We also want to stay 2 weeks and take our honeymoon somewhere in Negril, Jamaica. We have a travel agent, but she hasn't started looking up prices yet. We are also doing boarding pass save the dates. I am trying to get everything major out of the way so my guests have time to save!
