Photographer for Gran Bahia Principe, Riviera Maya ??

Just wondering what you brides have done for a photographer for your wedding @ the Gran Bahia Principe (not sure if it will be Tulum Coba or Akumal yet)..I have read you can't bring an outside photographer and need to use the ones they have on the resort?? HELPPPP please :)

Hey Promise12!


The best person to contact regarding the resort policies would be their on-site coordinator.  Remember it is your special day and if you are not 100% happy with their inhouse photographer, stick to your guns and let them know you would like to bring in your own.  There are always creative ways around such issues.  I've put together a WIKI for Choosing Your Wedding Photographer with some insider's tips.  Hope it helps!

Hi Promise!


I just returned Sunday from photographing a wedding at the Gran Bahia.  Their rules are that you can hire whoever you'd like to photograph your wedding, but they must be guests at the resort for a minimum of 3 nights or you can use the resort photographers.


A lot of brides will fly in their photographers based on these rules.  You get a lot more bang for your buck and it's usually cheaper than the resort photographer's prices.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
