    Could you happen to have a guest that is an excellent photographer? I don't think that a resort could tell a guest at your wedding that they couldn't shoot photos! I think that's how a lot of destination wedding photographers do it. You pay for their travel expenses and they are instantly a guest at your wedding :)

      I also 'had to' use the resort photographer. But then I found the loop-hole! Like Tlseege said; if my guest is there for the resort's minimum stay, I can have ANYONE be the photographer. I flat out told them that it was a professional photographer who would be photographing my wedding, and they said as long as she's there for the minimum 3 night stay, it was fine.

          This is off topic, but Sans Souci... Is that an area of Jamaica or a particular resort? I'm asking because my Dad and stepmom went there and wrote a song about it called "Sans Souci Angel". They played it at their wedding reception in Puerto Vallarta. :)

          We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

            I would try not to use the resort photog, I stayed at Couples Ocho Rios for my honeymoon and saw two people getting married, the photog was taking really weird photos, bad angles, bad lighting...etc. I agree with Heidi, have a "guest" who is your photog.

                I too would stay away from resort photographer, I am staying at Couples, Swept Away in Negril (30 minutes away from Ocho Rios) and the resort photographers are awful (have seen lots of brides devestated with their pics)..
