    We also chose to hire someone to bring with us.  For paying for her trip (which we got for free for having so many people book to come!)  she will be doing a total of 5 different shoots with us while we are there.  We will have our rehersal dinner, wedding and trash the dress shoot and then I will have, on my own, a boudoir shoot and a swim suite shoot.  I am very excited since I love pictures more then anything and to have all of these memories saved forever will be amazing.  Not only will she shoot just the main events but anything that she will be joining us at or on will have pictures taken!  So if you can find someone that you like their work and can work out a deal then I think you are better to take your own photographer with you.  Good luck!

        The resort photogrpahers are normally just okay.  Reosrts are going to choose a photographer that is good enough to not lose them wedding business by not good enough to be highly sought after and thus highly paid.  My resort actually used to contract with a photographer that everyone loved (Juan Navarro) but now they have switched to using a different company.  However, it is often not as inexpensive as you might think to use that resort photographer.  I am purchasing the $2800 wedding package from my resort which comes with ~3 hrs of photography and 50 printed pictures.  To have added additional time on the wedding day, a TTD session, and to get the CD of the pictures would have cost me ~$1600 more.  For that kind of additional money it was worth it for me to find a local photographer willing to give me a good deal so I could get a lot more pictures.

          Oh the way she made it sound is I would have to just pay the difference for the next package up since I am already doing the ultimate wedding package with the resort. So spending 500 more for all day coverage and the video is soo worth it to me. I figure out of the 100+ people we should have some decent and funny unprofessional shots that they get too. I guess then I won't stress about the photographer.
