    Hi I am getting married in October in at Sandals Negril and am looking for a reasonable photography package. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendation? We have talked the a couple of photographers out here and they are tell us about $3000 plus accommodations. Any suggestions?

      We've photographed at Sandals Negril and it was AMAZING!  Such a beautiful wedding location that you've chosen.  Also the best wedding food I've ever had!  $3000 plus accomodations is pretty steep.  Last time we went it was right around $3000 total and that includes 8+ hours on the wedding day and a trash the dress the next day.

        We were originally going to have my daughter's wedding at Sandals but were told they do not allow outside photographers. We wanted to use Sun Gold and I asked Paula about this rule and she agreed.  She said she gets many inquiries for Sandals, but has to tell the Bride that they do not allow outside photographers, which I thought was weird that they don't seem to tell you this until afterwards.  Thank goodness we decided not to have the wedding at Sandals but chose a place where there were less limitations.  Hope this helps :)

        In the past Sandals did not allow outside photography, however as of lately you can work with the wedding coordinator to allow it.

            Yeah, we were inquiring about that but Sandals is telling us that the photog would have to book a room for a min of 3 nights. That adds an extra $1200+ to the cost of photos.

                  Hi Amn1027, Just wondering if you had figured out your photographer situation. We are getting married at Sandals Negril in April 2013, as well and are unsure as to whether we should pay to bring our own photographer or do one of the resorts packages that are currently on sale. Also had a question that has nothing to do with photographers and thought you might be able to help...my family and friends are wondering if the 60% to 50% off sale is something they offer often...have your guest inquired about the same thing? Any help would be great thanks :)
