    Hi,

     

    2012 February wedding planned at Barcelo Maya Palace in Riviera Maya.  Has anyone recently got married or is getting married very soon that used/is using an outside photographer? who did you use? I keep hearing that outside photographers are not allowed and that you have to use 1 of 2 photographers that the hotel offers.  I really need some input on this as time is winding down!!!

     

    Thanks in advance :-)

      Hi Brandie,

       

      Your wedding coordinator at the hotel should be able to advise you of the outside vendor fee. Most hotels do work with their own vendors, if you would prefer to use your own photographer you will most likely have to pay a vendor fee. They range from $45.00 to $600.00 depending on the resort or the vendors you are looking at having of your own. You can ask for a link to the hotel's photographers website to look at their work. If you would like to use someone different they will be able to let you know of the vendor fee that they charge. I have used Barcelo in the past and it was $400.00 for the photographer outside vendor fee however this can fluctuate so you would want to confirm with the hotel wedding coordinator directly to ensure you are aware of the correct fees.

        I've done many wedding shoots at the Barcelo Maya!  It is a gorgeous resort with so many different facets and feelings.  I believe the outside vendor fees varied between $300 to $400 USD.  Your wedding coordinator would definitely be the right person to contact.  You can check out some of my shoots at the Wedding at Barcelo Maya, Riviera Maya, Mexico.

        I was flown in to photograph a wedding at the Barcelo and it was a 3 night minimum stay.  So there's always that route too.

          Hi Brandi,

           

          You can ask your wedding coordinator about the fee for outside vendors, she is the one that can definitely help you. It's a great resort with a lot of locations for excellent shots, Here is a link of a wedding video taken at Barcelo so you can take a look!
