    I think I will do just that. I'm not even going to try to rock the boat by trying to use someone from out there like HDC, even though I like their packages. I don't mind TP or their style, but they don't offer as much coverage as I want. MAYBE I'll use them for the video, I'd want a video of my ceremony at the very least.

        Are you using TRivera's photographer? Heather did a great job on her wedding. You should have no problem

         

        Yes! Her pictures by Heather Prescott came out beautifully. I've reached out to her and we're working on a package for us as we speak. And she already told me she's going back a couple of weeks after my wedding as well, I think it might be for JCastro's wedding since she gave me the info.

          I'm really cool with TRivera and I thought of using Heather also but I didn't know if she would want to go back or probably charge a fee on top of the travel arrangements.

            You girls will definitely have an advantage as Heather knows the resort now. I was thinking of my photographer that i use for all my parties but I just want someone familiar with the resort, also not have to worry about anyone feeling out of place while we're all getting drunk lol

              Not sure if this would work...but...if booking HDC (provided that the whole photographers staying as guests thing has been resolved) couldn't we just book a room for them and avoid the outside vendor fee? I mean BBPD couldn't have blacklisted the HDC photographers from staying at their hotel right??! 

               

              MissJali- you were so right! HDC sent me their packages and they are wayyy better. More coverage and more pictures for much less. I was told by Arnaud at HDC that if we had to pay the vendor fee they would add one extra free hour to our package.

                But when would you book the room? Here in the states or out there?

                  Ideally I would book it here via the BBPD website. I need the names of the photographer(s) assigned to our wedding to book it. I might have to pay for 2 nights (the night before and the night of the wedding) because check in is around 3-4pm and the wedding is at 5. This would make sure that they are considered "guests" in plenty of time and is still cheaper than the vendor fee. Am I crazy? Do you think that would work?

                    Exactly what is the price for your dates? For mine, BBPD is being ridiculous on their website.

                      Also do you think they (the photographer) would be willing to check in??
