    Hello Everyone!

    I am very new to this forum and my first post! I recently got married at the Gran Bahia, Runaway Bay, Jamaica in June. I can definately tell you that this resort is beautiful! Pictures do absolutely no justice! Beverly, the wedding planner, did an amazing job! Everything was on schedule and went very smoothly. She is great to work with, very helpful and made me feel at ease. For anyone who is looking to get married at the Gran Bahia, I have no complaints!

    After reading this forum re: photography, I decided against the resort photographer and reasearched outside photographers. I chose Marcia Roberts for a few reasons: Her photos grabbed my attention, her prices were reasonable & there was no time limit. Marcia & her assistants were so much fun to work with and there were always there helping in any way they can. Hardly anything was posed and that is what I like! They definitely captured every moment, especially the funny ones! I received my photos in a week and they were amazing! If you are in search of a Jamaican photographer, I definitely recommend Marcia!

          Thanks for sharing your experience! Do you mind me asking what sort of photo package you got and how much you paid? We are considering bringing our own photographer and I just want to compare the costs. Thanks so much!

              Hi Jenn,

              I am glad you decided to go with Marcia! I had a limited budget myself and she did her best to work with that. She is great!

              Ashley,

              The cost is $1000 US for 500 pics plus dvd montage but you should email her anyway because it depends on what you need, she has various packages plus she is very flexible and will work within your budget.

              If you wish to see my photos, Marcia has them up on her website:

              click on weddings, then Pamela & Alvin

                  Thanks Pam, I am getting married July 24, and I booked Marcia too. So far she has been great to work with from a distance. I booked her last year and since then we have been keeping in touch and she was able to work with my budget as well. I can't wait to meet her in person next week. I love the fact that she doesn't charge based on time limits.

                      I'm meeting with my photographer who did our engagement shoot to talk about bringing them down but the price your photographer offers is kinda hard to beat! thanks so much for the info!
