Photographers who's price INCLUDES the vendor fees

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

The resort I'm getting married had an $800 vendor fee for bringing in outside photographers. I have found one photographer who will cover up to $500 of the vendor fee. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend other photographers that include something similar in the cost of their packages.

 

Thanks!

 

p.s. Stacy Clarke photography covers up to $500

Hey there,

 

Of all the photographers that I considered and contacted (8 total) none of them covered any part of the vendor fee.  It is not standard practice for them to do so, and I believe you found one of the few exception that do. if anything, most will have a preferred list of vendors that you can use where the vendor fee will be waived. 

 

Good luck with you search and happy planning

I figured as much but I thought maybe if I found one, I'd be able to find others :)

Same as choco most photographers I contacted did t cover the vendor fee. Most resorts do have preferred vendors where the fee is waived but if you don't like any of the vendors on their list you can also look at the cost of booking your photographer into a room as most resorts also waive the fee if the vendor is staying on site for the minimum night requirement. A $800 fee is quite high so depending on what the room rates are it might be cheaper to book a room for 3 nights

I've done a lot of research! It looks like a lot of photographers will pay for SOME of the vendor's fee. Or will book a room at the resort depending on where and the package you get which may also help avoid the vendors fees. Here's the info I've gathered so far for anyone interested. I'm also thinking a lot of things are negotiable!

Thank you so much for posting this!  We are thinking about using Misha Earle.  I've connected to her work the most and it is so helpful to see her price list.  I havent been too impressed about Digipix ltd- that is Iberostar Grand Rose Hall's photographer of choice.  Choices Choices Choices!

 

Ciao

Hi Ladies, 

 

I am having a hard time deciding -- I need to know from past brides that had a videographer if anyone felt that they were too intrusive? I have been stressing a little over this and really need your help. I want to have the video for the fact that so many can't make the wedding (especially his family) but at the same time I dont' want them to be noticed or feel that they take away from the romance/ ambiance of the ceremony etc... Thoughts please?? Also has anyone ever used Marcia Roberts videographer? I am pretty darn excited that we just booked with her...such a fabulous lady!

 

Thanks!!

Kdoyle,

I am planning my 2nd (and final :)) wedding right now.  My first wedding was a local (Kentucky) wedding and I had a videographer and a photographer.  My ex and I watched our wedding video a million times and truly treasured it.  Our videographer wasn't intrusive at all and really captured the emotions of the day.  I can't promise all videographers will deliver a great product and not be intrusive but I know I really valued my video and found it as a way to reconnect to that day.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
