    I wanted to find out if anyone has used the photographer MP provides and if so were you pleased?
    Is anyone hiring an outside vendor?

      I'm hiring an outside vendor. I've heard mixed reviews and I can't seem to find any particular information on who the resort uses. The unforunate thing, is if you choose to get an outside vendor, the hotel has a "no outside vendors" policy. The only way to bypass this is to book your photographer a hotel room for the night.

        I too have been having a hard time finding out about the photography MP provides. Who did you hire if you don't mind me asking?

          I too am hiring an outside vendor, and have booked a room night for them. It does end up costing a small fortune...however I don't want to look at my wedding photos and think, which are the pictures the professional photographer took and which did my guests take...ya know what i mean?

            that's sad for some hotels to do that. =(

            that actually kills the opportunity for brides to get more creative images..especially for the BIG SPECIAL DAY of once life.

              Bride from Scotland - who did you hire? I just recieved an email from Del So that they no longer accept bookings at MP!
              I don't mind paying a little more for a photographer I love and can see the wrok they've done. I have not come across any photo's from a MP photographer.

                I hired Sascha Gluck...love his work, and the pictures are the most important to me.

                If you go to the review section...many MP brides have used the resort photographer. Many say that the best is David Pena and request him.

                Also, read MP 2008/2009 brides thread. It is VERY lengthy and there is plenty of photographer talk there

                  I'm planning to bring in a photographer also as a "guest." I've seen other brides on here put up posts/requests to share a photographer. I think that this is a great idea, but the challenge is finding another bride whose wedding day is the same as yours.

                    Initially I was just going to go with the Moon Palace photographer but now once I've had a think about it I think I want an outside vendor after looking at some websites- now the choice ofwhich one! Also being as our wedding package already includes a photo package am I able to have both? (Does that sound greedy?) Currently we just have the basic photography package? I understand we have to pay for a night for the photographer also can they come in on a day pass?

                    Thanks for your help as ever!

                    Maura - from this forum - just photographed a wedding at the Moon Palace. The bride wanted, not only professional photos, but also photos from more than just one day (TTD).
                    But you could probably contact her and ask her about the requirements to photograph there. I know she stayed, but they might require more than one night. You should send her a message to verify.
