    I just talked to someone who got married at Now Jade a few months ago--her only complaint was the photographer, I believe her exact words were "He was....for lack of a better word retarded". Has anyone else heard bad things about the resort photographer? It looks like a lot of people are hiring a photographer from outside of the resort.

      There are multiple reasons why people book outside photographers. 

      The main ones are

      * More coverage, less money

      * Better equipment

      * Better photography skills

      * Dedicated to wedding photography


      In the end, it's typically better quality and quantity.


      Best wishes!

          Hi Trina,


          Many resort photographers just can't compare with the level of quality that the professional photographers on this forum can offer. If photography matters, do your research and definitely have a phone or Skype conversation with a couple of photographers.


          You won't be sorry,

          I'm also getting married at Now Jade next year. I've decided to use the package photographer for our rehearsal dinner/welcome cocktail party and then I've hired an outside photographer "Sascha Gluck" to capture my actual wedding day. Like you, I have heard very mixed reviews about the resort photographers, and it seams like they're always switching them around and its never a constant person. I guess it just depends on how important pictures are to you, good luck!
