    Hi girls,
    I am in the process of trying to figure out what resort we are going to have our wedding at and I need your help. Pictures are at the top of my list for things I want for my wedding and I know alot of all-inclusive resorts are not allowing outside photographers. So I was wondering if I could get some feedback from future and past brides of where you went and who done your photos. Any information you could pass along would be greatly appreciated....Thanks ladies

      I dont know what kind of resort you are looking at but know the Hotel Catalonia Riviera Maya allows outside photographers and for no fee at present.

        Thanks for your reply. As for what type of resort, doesn't really matter all that much as long as it is all inclusive. Would like a modern resort though and wouldn't mind if it was adults only.

            Where do you want to get married? Mexico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica, etc?

            I know that a lot of photographers in these areas have lists of places that allow and don't allow outside photographers. Actually most places don't allow them, it seems. Photography was a big thing for me too so I made sure that the resort we're getting married at allows outside photographers. I let the wedding planner know in our first e-mail and she assured me it was completely okay.

            Good luck :)

              We're getting married at Moon Palace in Cancun. Although they advertise a "no vendor" policy, many brides bring in professional photographers as "guest." They've paid for a night's stay for the photog. This seemingly works out well because some photogs get photos of events like the rehearsal dinner, wedding preparation, etc.

                Thanks again guys for the posts....this site really seems to be awsome. We are 99.9% sure we are getting married in mexico. I love both the Mayan and Cabo so it does really matter where as long as the place is nice, clean, and I can have a photographer come in. Really open minded when it comes to where. Thanks again :)
