    I am getting married in May at EDR and was wondering what the EDR brides were doing for Photographers/Videographers? I know this is a sensitive subject. I was just wondering how everyone else is handling this issue.

        We are bringing our photographers from Edmonton. I am not even bothering bringing up this issue with Lomus. I will put their names down as guests, and leave it at that. They will also be there for more then the 3 'required' nights in case Lomus even makes a stink about it.
        But I am interested to see what will happen if this issue is not even addressed with Lomus. - We shall see But to be honest - I'm not that worried about it.
        I think you should just find the photographer/videographer you really want, and then deal from there.

          OUr photographers will be coming with us and staying the 3 nights, and are also on our guest list.
          I have heard that the resort photographer is not that good, and theycharge 500.00 per hour...

            I'm using Claudia Rodriguez and will put her on our guest list. If they require us to pay the $500, we'll do it, but only if they press the issue.

              ive done 2 weddings at EDR and have another one scheduled for next year. ive always been on the guestlist and always stayed 3 night cause im traveling from CA. its never been a problem. they wouldnt kick a guest out just cause they had a camera.

                That's what I suspected. Thanks Leigh! can't wait to see the pics from the next wedding :)

                  This topic has been discussed ad nauseum. I think the consensus is to put your photographer on the guest list, and to see what happens. The "3 day rule" has never been enforced from what I have read or seen. Nobody at Lomas has officially asked us a thing about the wedding photographer. They did mention leaving time for the photographer during our timeline for the wedding day. I simply told them that we weren't planning on using a photographer from the resort, and that our guests would be takng plenty of pictures... :-) Nothing more was said. And if they try to make an issue of it when we're there and mess with my future wife... THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY!!!

                    Hi Tricia

                    I too am getting married in May at the El Dorado, whats your date?

                    I couldnt bear to have the resort photographer so I have booked Vanessa Vargus her pics look fab.

                    Although because I caused such a stink with Lomas on the costs of bringing my own photograher I think they have my cards marked, so I think I will deffo have to pay the $500, great!!!

                    Love

                      I'd still try avoiding the topic, and then add her to your guest list. Worst case scenario is that they make you pay.

                      Did they specifically tell you what their "policy" is?
