    Is anyone on here using a travel agent to book their group? What incentives can you earn for large groups? (I'm thinking 50-75 guests...)

I just want to make sure we will have time for pictures after (we are bringing our own photographer). Any suggestions?!  

      If you want sunset photos, i recommend having your ceremony 1.5-2 hours BEFORE sunset. if you have your ceremony at sunset, you wont have much light for your after photos...

        Hi Ladies,

        I have not been on here much but I'm having a bit of a dilemma when it comes to photography.  I have heard nothing but wonderful things about Ileana (formerly of Tropical Imaging) and would very much like to use her for the ceremony. She has recently signed a contract with Beaches so she is now one of the photographers you can book through Beaches.  The only problem is that it cost $3800 to have her for 4 hours.  This includes 200 photos...and i believe that is it.  I REALLY wanted to do a TTD session with her as well which i could book separately with her for an additional cost.  But I'm having a VERY hard time swallowing the $3800 that Beaches is going to charge me.  That is pretty steep.  Have any past brides or soon to be brides booked the photography with Beaches? Am i correct in that the cost includes only 200 photos and nothing more? Any additional information would be most appreciated!

        Thanks!

            Has anyone else had any trouble with Roxi the wedding planner? We were supposed to have our conference call on April 5. We have rescheduled 3 times now - the first time she called an hour late, the second time she was three hours late and this last time she didnt call at all and I haven't heard from her since!

              I'm so sorry this has happened to you! I'm scheduled to have my first meeting with her July 14th. I really hope this is just rough patch for her and not a systemic problem! If it happens again, I would request another wedding planner! As for your pictures post- I believe beaches contracting with local photographers is a very new deal- I just booked with Ileana for a TTD photoshoot and it was wayyyy less than 3800. I cannot justify that at all, especially considering we are having a very small wedding. I have read this whole thread and a lot of past brides that booked with beaches (not local photographers) say they are just ok, with Patrick being the best if you choose to go that route. you can buy those photos ala carte if you don't purchase a package, but again it gets pricey. I think no matter what you choose in end, photography is one of the most expensive aspects and each bride has to find their budget threshold. Good luck!!!!!!

                I called Roxi yesterday because I previously had a price list for Ileana before she signed the contract with the resort. Yes the only package is $3800 for 200 photos on a disk and 4 hours of time. Each additional hour is $600.

The only advice I could give is that we arecflying are own photographer down. We asked her if we could pay for her 1/2 of the trip as her husband is coming down also. So we are paying $1500 but she is taking pictures on friday night and all day saturday. With an unlimited amount of pictures.
