    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.

        Can we bring our own photographer? Is that even possible?

        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.

              I just got married at Beaches Boscobel and we brought down our own photographer as a guest. The wedding staff was completely fine with that and I had no probelms.

                  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.
