    Hello and congrats on your engagement!

    I'm planning my own wedding for April 16th, 2013 at the Gran bahia Principe, Runaway Bay, jamaica

    I booked an amazing photographer, Stacey Clarke (local, in Jamaica) and I'm looking to find any brides getting married  April 15th or April 17th who would be interested in booking with her as well. If we both do then she will stay at the resort and we won't have to pay the pesky resort fee for an outside photographer (800US).

    Her work really is amazing and I'm super excited she was available.

      I had the same problem.  I was booking Merrick Cousley, and he brought that to my attention.  My wedding is on November 15, 2012.  Unfortunately because of our budget, we couldn't justify the $800 USD just to have him come on the resort.  My fiancĀ© and I just bought a house.  Anyways, we found that the Gran Bahia has a prefered photographer, Arrecife.  They probably started to charge the $800 fee to ensure that people would use their preferred photographer.  The website for them is http://www.arrecifes...ps=3&ht=6&sub=5


      An outside photographer will give you more value for your money (before the additional surcharge), however once you factor that $800 in, its just not worth it.  We looked at the Arrecife's photos and just decided to go with them.  Really and truly we don't need 800+ photos of us.  That was our choice.


      Best of luck with yours,
