Outside Photographers allowed???

Recommended Posts

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 Barcelo Maya on MY BLOG!

 

Happy Planning!

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!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
