Sandals photography (? for TA Jennifer...)

Recommended Posts

I read an update that TA Jennifer posted about 6 months ago that Sandals would be launching a new website with photographer information, including their portfolios, and we would soon be able to choose our photographer.

 

Does anyone have any information on this? I'm worried about my photography. I don't have the budget to fly a photographer with us so I have to rely on the resort and my guests. I'd really like to see some of the portfolios from Sandals Royal Caribbean.

As far as I know this hasn't happened yet, unless maybe it's something your WC can provide? I haven't seen anything on the Sandals/Beaches web sites tho. But if you check out some of the reviews for Beaches and Sandals weddings, I think you can get an idea of what to expect from the resort photographers.

I photographed a wedding at Sandals Negril, so it's definitely possible. The photographer simply has to be a guest at the resort, and it's best if you work with the TA's from this forum, as they have a great relationship with the resorts and can get it approved.

When I was originally booked at Beaches Negril, I was using my own photographer. I was flying her in from Chicago and she was staying at the resort for 3 days as a guest. But that was the stipulation by Beaches - the photographer had to be booked as a guest - they couldn't just come in with a day pass. I had absolutely no problems arrnaging this. My TA made a note on my photographers reservation and I also spoke with the WC in Miami as well as called the resort directly - all confirmed that I would not have any issues.

 

I am still undecided if we will try to go the same route this time at Beaches T&C due to the airfare being so much higher.

 

However I have seen posts from other brides that have stated they did have issues using their own photographer. I would really check with your TA and your WC and ask for their help in using the photographer that you want.

Take your own photographer. Sometimes, it's cheaper than hiring the site photographer. Plus, you'll get more of their time and get to know them on a more personal level than just someone you hire for a few hours.

 

Just FYI: check out brendamurphyphotography.com - I love her work and her site says available for destination weddings.

    • 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!!
