    Yeah, I had heard that you couldn't even bring outside florists or photographers in, so I'm not surprised. I don't know what their reasoning is for that, because it doesn't make any sense.

      I'm no longer offering the special, but can give you a custom quote if you're interested . . . pm me or contact me through my website.

      Thanks so much!

      Hi Robin......when I said traditional, I meant that I didn't see any DW shots on there. Sorry for the mixup. I hope I didn't offend you.

      Anyhow I saw your pics from Raeka's wedding and they are unbelievable. I am working with an extremely tight budget, but If i had the money, I WOULD DEFINETLY BOOK YOU. You totally have me SOLD right now....:-(

          I am bring my own photog from home. He will be booked in the hotel, and we will be paying a fee for "breaking the contract." I would rather not pay it, but if it means we can keep him out of our hair I will do it.

            I think the majority of the resorts have a policy like this. Either the Photographer is booked in the hotel as a guest or there is a fee. However, there is no rule or law that says you cant have VERY good friends with VERY nice cameras. Seriously, they cannot enforce any rule saying your guests cant have nice cameras and be shooting you for free. Something to keep in mind if you want to avoid the fee. We have had to do it before.

              My cousin is a photographer and will be shooting my wedding photos, TTD and BD session…. I haven’t heard about a fee for having my own photographer…. I did hear that the photographer had to be booked as a guest, but since she’s my cousin there for my wedding she is a guest…. Do you think this is something I should check into? I really am not going to pay them extra because my cousin is shooting my pics!

              By the way my wedding is May 29 and my cousin is going to be in Jamaica between May 27 – June 1st (not sure of the exact date she is going to arrive and depart yet). If anyone is going to be there around the same time as me, I’ll ask her if she is willing to consider shooting other weddings or even TTD or BD. Weddings are not her specialty, but she is wonderful (I might be bias since she’s my favorite cousin, but she has been taking pictures of me my whole life and I LOVE every single picture she takes).

              I am going to try to post her website (once I get permission and figure out how) so some of her work can be seen.
